Sword of MacLeod
"This futuristic would appeal to everyone...but for fans of
futuristic, they will feel like they are in heaven. Did I like it? I LOVED IT! 5
When Beckett MacLeod's young daughter sneaks away from home to search for the legendary Sword of MacLeod, Beckett is forced to leave his home world for the first time to search for his missing child. Plunged into a universe whose modern technology is foreign to him, he hires a tracker to locate his run-away daughter.
Raven accepts the assignment because she knows no mere child could elude her expert abilities for long. Wrong. As they follow the child's trail, Raven and Beckett stumble into a maelstrom of trouble: laser battles, hostile alien worlds and of course, deadly space pirates. And worst of all?
In the midst of all the danger, Raven finds herself falling in love with Beckett. How can she consider loving a man who comes from such a technologically backwards world? They have nothing in common. They can't even agree on basic concepts. Yet when he kisses her, all she can think about what it would feel like to stay in his arms forever. Love and duty clash like flint and steel, creating sparks that ignite the soul. All this for the sake of a magical sword that fuels one young girl's dreams...

the lines of "Sword of MacLeod" and "Somewhere My Love"?
I have these books in my collection and have re-read them
several times. I love the way they are written and the storyline and hope
to see more or this type of book.
"I wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know I really
enjoyed the 1997 futuristic books you'd written so many years ago "Sword of
MacLeod" and "Somewhere My Love" were both really good books that I have
re-visited just because I enjoyed them so much the first time. I have not read your fae series as that is a genre I am not
really prone to find. But, the futuristics are another matter. Any chance of
more futuristics being in your / my future ?? Thank you for many hours of reading enjoyment !
"I wanted to let you know that I LOVE
your books! Especially the two futuristic ones that you wrote. I
am curious, though, do you plan on writing any more? I would love
to know what happened to Raven and her family. And you briefly
mentioned at the end of your second book that you were thinking of
writing a story for Devon? What happened to the Scanners on Lander?
I would be interested in knowing how Lander got settled and why
the people on the planet have such similar abilities to those of the
Scanners. Anyway, just re-read
Somewhere My Love and was
curious and wanted to let you know that I will keep reading your
Why Did I Write This Book?
Beckett MacLeod was first created during a writing exercise at a weekend creativity session. We were given the name 'Baku' and told to write while listening to an African melody. Everyone wrote about a man dancing in the jungle, but that's not what I saw. Instead, I pictured the bar from Star Wars with a man looking for someone. He's out of place but determined and a definite hero.
From that one page beginning, Beckett MacLeod came to life. Needing a reason for him to be looking for someone, I had his daughter disappear and thus the search for the Sword of MacLeod was on. And, of course, I had to have the person Beckett was looking for. Who else but Raven, a female Han Solo, would do? A modern woman and an old-fashioned man.
I like to call Sword of MacLeod, "the Highlander meets Star Wars." It has adventure, romance, action, space battles and wonderful characters that I hated to leave.
The hero came by his name of Beckett in tribute to Sam Beckett, the character played by Scott Bakkula in Quantum Leap, who was the inspiration for Beckett.
