Overview

A Timeless Love

The great Lord Damron is no more than a shadowy, powerful presence in the ruins of Blackthorn Castle. But the compelling gaze of his portrait draws Lydia Hunter to stand before him—and fall through time to become his beloved Lady Brianna.

A Fiery Passion

A tempestuous man with an incendiary nature, whose fury on the battlefield quickly routs his foes, Lord Damron must claim his Scottish kingdom and his bride. But Brianna's heart can be claimed in only one way—her way. And his iron strength is no match for her gentleness...

Praise for Sophia Johnson's Risk Everything:

"Risk Everything has every element of a classic Johanna Lindsey: biting repartee, steamy sexual tension, a bold heroine and powerful hero. Johnson knows how to spin a tale...an accomplished debut."—Romantic Times, 4-star review

"Very intense..." —New York Times bestselling author Susan Johnson on Risk Everything

    What a time-travel book!

    I didn't notice any repetitiveness--and I'm very picky on that! Wonderfully written. I laughed and cried. At first, hard to like the character of Damron. He was a 'primitive beast.' But, hey, that was fairly typical for that time period. The modern comments Brianna/Lydia say's' to him leave him scratching his head a time or two until he can figure out if he was insulted or not. A good romance read.

    As a child living in New York, Lydia Hunter would spend her summers in Scotland where she would visit the ruins of Blackthorn Castle. She particularly found the portrait of eleventh century Lord Damron whom she dubbed ¿Lord Demon¿ quite alluring. Now as an adult following a divorce, Lydia needs a sense of belonging and simple solace. She thinks back to her happiest moments in her life gazing at the portrait and decides to visit for the first time in years hoping to recapture some of her youthful magic.-------------------- At Blackthorn Castle, during a storm Lydia slips and falls unconscious. When she awakens she finds herself inside the body of Lady Brianna, spouse of Lord Demon circa 1072. The king ordered Damron Alasdair to marry Brianna, which he did by proxy without his bride¿s attendance or knowledge. Now he goes to collect his pampered spoiled wife, but finds instead an argumentative feisty female cursing him while challenging his rule over her. Unable to reconcile the spirited independent female with the image of what he was told, Damron learns from a Druid that his wife is not Brianna, but instead the soul of Lydia from the future. In love with her, he will do what it takes to keep his Lydia at his side.------------ The enchantment in Sophia Johnson¿s delightful time travel romance resides in the shocked reactions by the medieval residents of Blackthorn castle to Lydia¿s use of profanity and her overall kick butt fighting spirit. She makes the tale fun to read though her adaptation to the eleventh century occurs too easily. Sub-genre fans will want to read this fine tale of an independent twenty-first century Yankee capturing a medieval Scottish warrior¿s heart.--------------- Harriet Klausner

    I have read this several times. I loved the whole series. All the charaters are well fleshed out. Lydia, the modern day Brianna, has gone through a messy divorce to a faithless husband. She has always been drawn to the highlands and a picture of Damron. Suddenly she finds herself transported to an earlier time. She finds herself married by proxy to Laird Damron. The story is great, she can't believe that the man who's picture shes so drawn to is such a domineering neanderthal. They definately have their battles. I laughed when he would be offended by her use of words he had never heard . He tried hard to get her to be a submissive and demure wife, to my delight she did not give up her feisty ways for him. Very enjoyable book, great love blooms between these two.

    The whole Blackthorn Series is a MUST read!

    Always Mine is the first book of three in the Blackthorn Castle Series. I’ve read this book four times and know I will read it again and again. Is Lydia Hunter dreaming - is she a reincarnation of Lady Brianna Sinclair, or has she traveled back in time to the eleventh century to her Lord Demon (aka Damron Alasdair Morgan)? There seems to be a little bit of everything in this book – the historical elements, romance, time travel, paranormal - it made me laugh, then it made me cry, but most of all it left me wanting to read more. The sequels - Risk Everything, book 2 and Midnight’s Bride, book 3 - are every bit as good as the first. Read the entire series – you’ll love them and want even more from this author when you are finished.

    A page turner!

    There is a time-warp thing going on with the heroine that needn't have been part of this book, it would have been fantastic even without it. Still, you'll love this book! It was well written with colorful characters, believable storyline for it's time, intense and heartfelt dialect, interesting site details, conflict, and of course romance and desire! The hero is powerful, handsome, and arrogant - the heroine is beautiful, innocent, and head-strong. I cannot think of one dull moment. Each page that you read keeps you wanting to know more.
    If I can't put a book down, in my book - it's a 5!

    an insite to the story

    When first starting the book you have very few uderstandings of the book. All you know is thatLydia hunter has some how managed to go back in time now whaether it is form the bump on her head or something is is undistiguishable. You know she has once been married and she lives in our time scotland. After hitting her head it is hard to tell if what she understands is really there or if she just has a major concussion.When first meeting Damron or Demon you would think that he is trying to kidnap her by the way he first starts their conversation. Later you learn that he is Lydia's or Brianna's fiance/ betrothed.Traveling back in time lydia is confused and angry at those around her for accusing her of going mad.When she starts to get too know demon she seems to get more and more attracted to him.

    This is a captivating story by Sophia Johnson that drew me in from the first chapter. Ms. Johnson draws vivid characters and paints lovely descriptions that have you right there in the period.

    Disappointing

    I was not too happy to read repetitive scenarios...I skipped a lot of pages...Dialogs got to be predictable. In all fairness, there were some sad moments that brought tears to my eyes..I would've loved more depth to the story..

    Outstanding!

    Our story begins on the present day. Lydia Hunter is a divorced young lady. Since the age of five, she has been enthralled with a portrait of Lord Damron of Blackthorn who lived in the eleventh century. Lydia did research on the Blackthorn history and knows about Lord Blackthorn's wife, Brianna Sinclair, and the two sons they sired. But no matter how much Lydia knew that Lord Blackthorn died centuries ago, she could never stop herself from feeling as though he belonged to her. Then came the day Lydia purchased a silver brooch. As she pinned it on her sweater in front of Damron's portrait, she could have sworn Damron reached out from the painting to assist her. Lydia Hunter fell into a coma. ============== Lydia awakens to find herself in Northumbria, England, in the year 1072. She still has her memories of her future life, but she also has the memories of Brianna Sinclair. In fact, Lydia is now in Brianna's body. Though Lydia had not been Brianna at the time, she easily recalls falling from her horse and hitting her head on a rock. Lydia is just not in Brianna's body...she actually IS Brianna. Lord Damron Blackthorn is with her. Problem is that Brianna's first impression of Damron is as a 'medieval chauvinist pig'. Though Brianna is in love with Sir Galan of Ridley, she has no choice but to wed as King William demands since she is his ward. As Brianna travels with Damron to her new home, Blackthorn Castle, she is not alone. With her is Lord 'Nathaniel' Bleddyn. Nathaniel is descended from the ancient Druids of Cymru and of Cadwallon, King of Gwynedd. As such, he has inherited the line's mystic powers. Nathaniel knows that Brianna is from the future and that her soul has been sucked back to her former life. He can even speak to Brianna, and Damron, telepathically. He may be the only thing that keeps Brianna sane. ======== As for Damron, he is not happy with his new wife. She curses too much, rebels, and seems to think that she is his equal. But as time passes, Damron's attitude changes toward his feisty bride. If the future succeeds in pulling Brianna back to her future life as Lydia... ======== ***** The author does not tell much about what is happening to Lydia's body (in the future) until far into the story. But that was only two or three pages and did not enlighten me as much as I wanted. I felt as though the pages were added in as an after thought. However, by the end of the novel I understood why the author wrote the scene the way she did and I totally approve. No sappy, wimpy, fainting little miss in this tale! Brianna may be a lady of history, but she has the mind of a modern day lady and knows how to use it. An outstanding tale that will tug on your heart strings! *****

    Can't put it down

    This book is excellent. The author takes you for a romantic trip back in time. Her books are full of romance, adventure and humor. What a wonderful new author! I am looking for her to get on the best sellers list soon and can't wait for her next book to come out! I have read both of her books and you can't put them down once you start. Read Always Mine 1st as it gives you the background of the characters for the book Risk Everything. Her writing is so authentic that you feel that you are actually there in Scotland as you read.
