was the best boyfriend Kelsey ever had, but seven years ago he
disappeared from her life. She coped with her heartbreak by finishing
her doctorate in Celtic Artifacts, and now her career is taking off.
But Tavish is back, acting like a stranger who knows more about
Celtic artifacts than she does. He’s been on staff at every one of
her job sites in Scotland, wearing that stupid sexy kilt.

Tomas
Dunskey
Castle Book 3
 
Tomas
was on top of the world. He had a hot girlfriend. She knew about time
travel, so he didn’t have to keep secrets around her. So why did the
sight of his old friends Amber and Kelsey make him uncomfortable? His
girlfriend kept telling him to forget about them. But he couldn’t. He
wished he knew why.

Time
of the Celts
Dunskey
Castle Book 4
 
Jaelle
dons a Roman helmet left among her ex’s things and is transferred to
the Pictish Celt side of Hadrian’s wall — flat on the ground and
tripped over by Breth. The naked woad-painted warrior is being chased
by Romans who caught him scouting their fort. She earns his trust by
grabbing an injured Roman’s sword, fighting beside Breth, and saving
his life. He takes her to his clan, where she sees druids in their
sacred grove imparting magical protection by painting the warriors’
nudity with muscle-activated woad pictures.

of the Picts

Castle Book 5
 
Ignoring
phone calls from Kelsey, Jaelle thinks her first time travel
adventure was a dream, but a new museum display shows a stick figure
she remembers drawing with her fingernail file on the top stone of
Hadrian’s Wall. Whoa, that means her time travel and meeting of the
dazzling warrior Breth and their fight with the barbarians at the
Roman fort really took place! She needs to get back to Breth!

Time
of the Druids
Dunskey
Castle Book 6
 
Deirdre’s
first time travel assignment was challenging. Sure, she had her magic
dagger, but he wasn’t cooperating.

 

 

Talorac
felt anxious about this meeting. A summons to the sacred grove had
always meant the druids would perform their woad magic to prepare him
for battle. So he was in no way prepared to make the acquaintance of
the woman he found there with them. Deirdre was beautiful, and a
warrior, and from the way she was flitting around the grove, she was
the most powerful druid he had ever heard of in his life.

Leif
Dunskey
Castle Book 7
 
Jessica’s
friend tricks her into time traveling to 15th century Scotland. A
gorgeous highlander Jessica is sure is out of her league invites them
to stay at his manor house.

 

 

Leif
knows he should keep his mind on training the militia for the battle
that is sure to come soon. And after all, Jessica is just passing
through his town. But she is so compassionate he feels his heart
melting.

Taran
Dunskey
Castle Book 8
 
Lauren
has a magic dagger that gives her orders and sometimes stifles her
speech. It wants her to find some artifact here in 1400s Scotland and
give it to some druid friends. 

 

She
wants to get to know Taran. But the dagger whispers that Taran is in
the way.

 

Taran’s
life in a small town in Scotland was disrupted six months ago with
the arrival of Lauren and the other two lasses. Lauren knew the way
mechanical things worked in a way most astonishing. He never tired of
hearing her explain. But to find out she has a magick dagger that she
is in danger of losing her self control to? That shocks him.

Luag
Dunskey
Castle Book 9
 
Luag
and Katherine are two bullheaded people trying to “out stubborn”
each other. They’ve been verbally sparring in Medieval Scotland for
the past year. He’s never met a headstrong woman before, and he is
such a stubborn male! When chance throws them forward to Katherine’s
time, he is the fish out of water. Understanding blooms, as does
love.

Meehall
Dunskey
Castle Book 10
 
Sarah’s
boss at Celtic University plonks an iron bracer on her desk. It
brings up one of Kelsey’s magic druid dreams. In it, Sarah’s ex,
Michael (Meehall in Gaelic), used this bracer as a time travel
object. And was a kilted highlander in 1700s Scotland.

 

 

At
lunch, Sarah’s friends say they’re calling in sick tomorrow to
attend a local fair. They want her to call in sick too.

 

 

Sarah
isn’t keen on giving the bracer back. She wants revenge on Meehall
for breaking up with her and decides to use the bracer to have a bit
of fun.

 

 

She
tells her friends they don’t have to call in sick. She’s taking
them back in time.

 

 

“Good
one!” they tell her, laughing.

Ciaran
Dunskey
Castle Book 11
 
Ciaran
arrives in the 21st Century with Eoin (John) in the darkness of the
Celtic University night. Ciaran is delighted to run into Nadia and
wants to stay and visit, but Eoin drags him away from her. Eoin is
extra grumpy, saying the Murrays need an edge because the Cameron
Clan is planning something big. Eoin sneaks the two of them into a
storage basement and seems inordinately glad to find a particular
halberd there.

 

 

Nadia
remembers the kilted warrior Ciaran from her experience in 1706
Scotland and secretly has a crush on him. Wherever he and Eoin are
going, she bets it will inspire her story for Celtic University’s
historical society paper, especially if they are time traveling. She
sneaks into the back of the cart Ciaran and Eoin are driving and
hides under a blanket.

Baltair
Dunskey
Castle Book 12
 
Ellie
was captured during her last time travel adventure. But her friend’s
husband’s life hangs in the balance. And this ring she found is
giving her courage. Probably too much courage for a modern woman in
1706 to have.
Baltair
is glad to see Ellie again. Her friend married his cousin and stayed,
when Ellie went back to their time. But he keeps his distance. Many
will die in the upcoming battle, maybe including him.

Marybeth
frowned. “Dinna ye think it wrong, tae grab the faerie axe by
force?”

 

 

Ashley
batted the air as if what Marybeth had said was dismissible. “The
faeries gave it tae Ciaran, who gave it tae John. Kelsey stole it
from John. ‘Tis na wrong for John tae steal it back from
her.”

 

 

Connell
stuck his chest out and his chin up in a show of bravado. “Kelsey’s
gotten full o’ herself, syne she went off tae Celtic University.
That, or she has been brainwashed by all those Druids. We used tae be
friends, but now she’s gone tae far. We wull be taking that axe back
from her sae we can save Donnan. End o’ discussion.”

Empress
Matilda of England
The
Legendary Women of World History Book 7

 

127
pages
 
Born
in 1102 to King Henry of England and Queen Matilda of Scotland,
Matilda’s uniquely royal Norman, Saxon, and Scottish heritage was
meant to unify an England still divided by her grandfather’s conquest
in 1066. When the 1120 White Ship Disaster made her the only
surviving child of her parents, Matilda suddenly became heiress to
the English throne in a time when the old Saxon Witan, not the king’s
Will, still decided the succession.
Discover
the true story of the first woman to claim the throne of England in
her own right and be inspired!

Includes
Matilda’s family tree, a detailed timeline, and a suggested reading
list so you can keep learning.

 

 
 

 

 

Hypatia
of Alexandria
The
Legendary Women of World History Book 8

 

105
pages
 
As
the western world fell into darkness, she dared defend the
light.
Born
in 355 CE in the aftermath of Constantine’s reign, Hypatia of
Alexandria lived in a collapsing Roman Empire, a world where
obedience to religious authorities trumped science, where reason and
logic threatened the new world order. It was a world on the edge of
the Dark Ages, a world deciding the question of science verses
religion, freedom verses orthodoxy, tolerance verses hate.

For
over 40 years, Hypatia stood between the dark ages and the light of
classical philosophy, arts, and sciences. Though none of her books
survived the aggressive book burnings of religious zealots, her
legacy remains that of one of the greatest scientists of all
time.

This
is her fascinating true story.

 

 
 
Born,
raised, and educated in Lincoln, Nebraska USA Laurel A. Rockefeller
is author of over twenty books published and self-published since
August, 2012 and in languages ranging from Welsh to Spanish to
Chinese and everything in between. A dedicated scholar and
biographical historian, Ms. Rockefeller is passionate about education
and improving history literacy worldwide. 

 

 


With
her lyrical writing style, Laurel’s books are as beautiful to read as
they are informative.


 

In
her spare time, Laurel enjoys spending time with her cockatiels,
attending living history activities, travelling to historic places in
both the United States and United Kingdom, and watching classic
motion pictures and classic television series.
