Crashing Through Time is March’s “Book of the Month” so I’ve put up 10 lines from my fun, sexy time-travel romance.
I’m starting near the beginning, when the heroine, Corrine MacGowan, notices smoke coming out of the engine of the sightseeing plane she’s on over Cornwall, England. The pilot manages to land the plane, but all hell has broken loose in the cabin and Corrine has had enough. (Please forgive the creative punctuation.)
“Ladies and gentlemen, take your seats please,” the captain shouted over his shoulder, still wrestling with the controls.
Corrine stared through the window at the billowing black smoke. Forget that. She shoved past the man in front of her and wrenched his hand away from the handle. She grasped it, twisted it all the way up until she felt a click then pushed.
The door popped open so fast Corrine didn’t have time to let go. It swung away, pulling her out of the plane onto the wing over the failing engine. Acrid smoke wafted around her, stinging her eyes and nose; she took a breath and coughed, eyes streaming.
The plane slowed drastically, though it bounced over the rough tufts of grass fast enough to shake Corrine until her teeth rattled. Adrenaline surged as she held her breath and jumped.
Crashing Through Time is available in the boxed set Crashing Into Love here.
More than hearts can be broken when you crash through time.
Theatre professor Corrine MacGowan is in a sightseeing plane that crash lands in a field in Cornwall. She wanders away from the crash site, led by a strange buzzing in her head that is coming from a black well (think The Ring). She falls down the well and ends up in Cornwall in 1868 at the home of her Master’s thesis subject, playwright Sir Robert Graysill. She immediately meets Sir Robert’s nephew, Ian Hunterly, and once she comes to terms with the fact that she has fallen through time, realizes from her research that Ian is doomed to die within a matter of days. Can she save him and change history? Or let history run its course and lose the man she has come to love?
That’s all for this week. Hope you enjoyed it!
