Feeling chatty?

Welcome to my blog! Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and read what's on my mind. I've a vicious sense of humor, an apprecation for romance and a mad addiction to writing.

BLOGMANIA HAS ARRIVED!!! Time to win, win, win!


Wow! Can you believe it’s Blogmania time once again? It seems like mere days ago that we all romped through cyberspace, eager to visit various blogs, see what everyone was up to and─of course─enter to win a HUGE slew of prizes! But no, half a year has gone by and as all quality events go, Blogmania is back!!! This time, 169 blogs have come together to give away thousands and thousands of dollars worth of giveaways.

So what are my prizes? Two $25 gift certificates to Digi Books Café and a set of autographed books from my Highlander trilogy. Three winners will be drawn. It's super easy to win at this blog! All you have to do is leave a comment and become a follower. Read on for details and another bonus prize you could win hidden within this post...

Fate’s Monolith (Book I)

“A lover of all things Scottish along with an avid love of anything that is fantasy, Fate’s Monolith just hits my buttons. It’s a lovely blend of two times and the trouble that would befall anyone that is taken across the fabric of time. Sky Purington has done a wonderful job bringing this story to life. I found it hard to put down and it made me wish for my own Highland Laird to come and sweep me off my feet and into a time where I could be loved for who I am. I hope you take the time to get lost in Fate’s Monolith this summer just as I did.”

Dianna ~ Night Owl Reviews


“If you like romance AND time travel you will love this book! I loved it and am anxious to read more by this author. The story is well written and moves right along at a fast pace… Of course Caitlin and her Mac’Lomain chieftain Ferchar are hot ticket items. The sexual tension snaps and vibrates through the entire story…Caitlin’s character shines through all her actions. Her bravery and straight-forwardness will endear her to you. The use of her modern language will clarify for you the intent of what is meant. She embodies the spirit of modern women. Ferchar is magnificent. No other way to describe him. The man makes your heart pound. Why? Physically tall, muscular, forthright, sexy, strong…oh I could go on at great length. Did I mention I read this story twice?”

Verbena ~ Long and Short Reviews

“Destiny’s Denial is the second book in the Mac’Lomain Trilogy. While I totally loved the first book, “Fates Monolith” I also find that I enjoyed the second book as much if not more since it is about a girl that could be any one of us in this day and age. Beautifully put together, the images that Sky Purington leaves you with will have you wishing that you were of the Broun clan and that your own Mac’Lomain would pull you back through time to be with him yourself. Take some time during this hot summer to cool down in beautiful Scotland and see just what will have you wishing you could find such a destiny of your own.”

~Dianna ~ Night Owl Reviews


“If you’re looking for that great summer beach read that will take your mind off all your worries this one is for you. If you love the time travel romances of Lynn Kurland, this one equals any of hers. This is a must read for fans of great romance. Even though this is book three of the trilogy it stands well on it’s own, but I have to admit that now I have to read the other two.”

~Larkspur ~ Long and Short Reviews

“I have never read any of Sky Purington's books before, but after reading "Sylvan Mist", I can't wait to read more. It is a great book, mixing magic with history and time travel with romance, all following a family line through time. I loved the storyline and the great characters. I could sense from the first that the hero and heroine were meant for each other, but it took a lot of ups and downs before it finally happened. And I loved the ending, where two old lovers were finally reunited to spend the rest of their lives together. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends and family. I really enjoyed it.”

~Countrygirl88 ~ Night Owl Reviews

“This final story in Purington's Mac'Lomain trilogy is an enchanting story of time hopping. Closely connected to the previous stories, the action is intense and the finish is a fine conclusion to the series.”

~Romantic Times Reviews

Sky here! All you have to do for a chance to win IS LEAVE A COMMENT AND BECOME A FOLLOWER by Friday, September 17th, 12 AM EST. If you’re already a follower just say so in a comment. Naturally, I shared a little about my Highlander trilogy through reviews. ***Added BONUS*** One more lucky winner will be chosen if they answer the following correctly...list one country that you feel─based on this blog─I may love as much, if not more, than Scotland for a chance to win the lead-in tale to my trilogy, The King’s Druidess. (Hint, hint…the title’s kind of a dead giveaway!)

Happy blogging everyone. Hope you enjoy visiting all my fellow Blogmanian sites. The more blogs you hit the more chances you have to win! Here is a list of all the participating blogs.

Hugs, cheers and all that!

As for the bonus it is hard because I know the Druids were in the celtic parts of Gaul, britain, and Ireland. So that leaves you basically with modern day france, England, and Ireland. I'll rule out france and narrow it down to england and Ireland...from here it could go either way really but I'll take a stab and say Ireland
