Crashing Through Time is March’s “Book of the Month” so I’ve put up 10 lines from my fun, sexy time-travel romance.
At this point in the story, Corrine MacGowan has fallen down a well. She recovers and staggers out of the woods only to be almost trampled by a horse and rider. The horse shies at her, throws its rider and Corrine is left to help the unfortunate man. When she discovers she’s fallen through time into the 1860s and into the arms of a man she’s researched, Ian Hunterly, Corrine finds herself falling in love. Unfortunately, Corrine knows Ian’s fate all too well–and must make some serious decisions. (Please forgive the creative punctuation.)
Heartbeat hammering a heavy metal beat, Corrine smiled automatically and shifted her gaze down to her plate. Her appetite had fled. “That is most kind of you, Mr. Hunterly.”
“Not at all, Miss MacGowan.” The deep sultry tone of his voice sent a shiver of longing through her.
She raised her head to look him in the eyes. In two weeks’ time, unless some miracle occurred, on the night of the May Queen Ball, this charming, sexy man would be burned to a crisp in his uncle’s barn. Her stomach churned.
“Are you quite well, Miss MacGowan?” he asked, concern lacing the words, making her clench her jaw against an abrupt onslaught of tears.
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!
