“Did he hurt ye, lass?” he asked, examining her from head to toe.
“No, I’m fine. Thank you for saving me.” She smiled up at him and he saw her expression change to one of surprise. “Grey eyes… it’s you!” she said, and then she promptly fainted.
Cailin caught her before she hit the ground. Gently picking her up, he carried her into the shelter of the trees, Cadeyrn following obediently. Once assured they were safely hidden from anyone travelling the path, he found a small clearing and laid the woman down on the ground. He touched her cheek lightly with his fingers and gently brushed her hair back from her face.
She was a beauty. Dark auburn hair and before she’d fainted, light amber eyes had looked at him with familiarity. Why had she called him grey eyes? His eyes were grey, it was true, but she’d stared at him as if they’d met before and she was shocked to see him again. He didn’t know what to do, or how to wake her, so he settled down next to her and waited. It gave him the opportunity to study her unabashedly. Her clothing was unusual for a woman, exposing so much skin. The scant piece of clothing covering her breasts left little to the imagination and the gap between it and her breeches displayed soft, womanly curves. He wanted very much to touch her, to see for himself just how soft her skin was, but he forced his mind away from those thoughts. Mayhap the man had taken her clothes. He’d be sure to ask her when she woke. Until then he was happy to sit back, gaze at her, and wait for her to awaken.

Jennae was born and raised a New England girl, just outside of Boston, Massachusetts, where her imagination was always bigger than she was. Her large, extended Irish and Italian families were a great source of support, inspiration and humor. Laughter, love and food were never hard to find in her home. Jennae grew up surrounded by nostalgic, historical landmarks, which fed her love of history and creative writing.
She has worn many hats over the years. From owning her own typing service and horse training/boarding facility, to operating an embroidery/t-shirt business, her entrepreneurial spirit was strong and thriving. Determined to do something she truly loved, her vivid imagination took over again and she decided to follow her literary dream of writing stories that tapped into her love of magnificent people and places.
Jennae now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, where they’ve raised two beautiful and talented children. Along the way they’ve gathered a menagerie of pets, including one dog, three cats and 4 chickens to make the family complete.
