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. Once she exits the plane she has an extreme urge to pee and takes off into a nearby stand of woods. Once finished with her business she hears a strange noise and heads toward it. (Please forgive the creative punctuation.)
Before she quite realized it, she’d stopped only a single pace from the lip of the well. The structure stood waist high, the stones pockmarked, the mortar black with age.
Corrine dropped her hands to her sides. The volume of the jingling glass choir no longer felt painful, although it was certainly much louder than when she’d begun walking toward it. Had someone put an amplifier in an abandoned well? What the hell was going on here?
Curiosity replaced fear and she stepped up to the structure until the well’s rim pressed into her stomach. Taking a deep breath, she leaned over the edge, peering into the darkness. The angelic choir hit a single high note with the force of a gale wind. Her head filled with an eerie white light, she swayed over the edge, and plunged into the inky depths.
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!
