HIS GREATEST FEAR

Brother Ranald of Raptor Castle is a scarred monk in Scotland’s Kelso Abbey. When angered, he causes objects to fly about, turns still waters stormy and causes candles to light with but a look. In the peace of the abbey, he controls his rage and fights his forbidden desires. But what would he become if forced to return to the secular world?

His identical twin dies the day before he is to wed Catalin of Hunter Castle. Refusing to lose the bride’s fortune, the Chief of Raptor Castle arrives at the Abbey with an army and a special dispensation from the Pope. He demands that Ranald will marry Catalin. If he refuses, the Chief will destroy the Abbey and all within.

HER TERRIBLE SIN

Catalin is a stong-willed, passionate lass. The eve before she must wed the long-lost Ranald, she approaches a monk hidden beneath his cowl and cloaked in the darkness of a stormy night. When she seeks to confess her sins, he gently stops her.

The next day as she approaches the altar, she sees Ranald’s tonsure. Catalin is terrified of what this monk, forced to become as other men, will do when he learns of her terrible sin.

Meet the Author

SOPHIA JOHNSON is well versed in the medieval period and supports her research with lengthy trips to Great Britain. As a child in Key West, she would sit beneath a coconut tree and daydream while she listened to the sound of the waves and enjoyed the briny smell of the ocean. She wondered what life would be like if she awoke one morn to find she had traveled back through the centuries?
Her parents were avid readers and passed on to their children their love of reading about far away places. Throughout her life, Sophia always had her nose in a book when she had free time. One day, her daughter and son-in-law came to visit and brought in a computer.
When she asked what they were doing, they told her, “We want you to stop reading and start writing your own stories.”
So she did!
Her Tag Line is “Love Through the Ages,” the theme of her novels.www.sophiajohnson.net

The book review dated June 19, 2003, does not belong to this book. The current Forbidden was writen by Sophia Johnson in 2011. While I'd like to take credit for her lovely books, the 2003 review belongs on her page and not mine. I've tried to get it off before, but to no avail. I'm sorry, Susan.
