Growing up in Joliet, Illinois, Samantha James had many childhood aspirations--being a writer was never one of them. When she was ten, she was certain she was destined to be an astronomer. That soon changed (happened a lot during those pre-teen years!) when she decided archaeology was in her future. Detective work was her next goal, thanks to the Trixie Belden mysteries she was reading, and before long, nursing beckoned (courtesy of the Cherry Ames series). In college, she set her sights on teaching history, then briefly entertained the notion of becoming a flight attendant, only to discover she did not like to fly.

“The unexpected makings of a smile tugged at her lips. Here he was, hurt and wounded, and he was concerned about his horse. How very like a man.”
Samantha James, A Perfect Hero

“Well," he said lightly, "where shall we go?"
"I thought I was being kidnapped, sir."
"Well, you are. But you are being allowed the privilege of being asked if there's anywhere in particular you would like to go?"
Fionna's heart caught. All the way to Gleneden, she longed to cry. She remembered the night he'd first suggested he might kidnap her.
If I should kidnap you, he had said, why, we would not be seen for many days and many nights... I admit, though, I find the prospect quite fascinating. I'd take you to Gleneden, I think, where we would be far, far away from everyone... quite alone, you and I.
How long ago that seemed. Yet in truth, it had been only a few weeks.
In that uncanny way he had, he always knew her every thought. She knew it for certain when she spied the smile lurking at the corners of his mouth.
"North?" he murmured. "To Scotland?"
Fionna tried to stifle a smile and didn't succeed. Which in turn, only encouraged him.
