He hoped for a wife. He found a companion through time and beyond.
It is 1715 and for Duncan Melville something fundamental is missing from his life. Despite a flourishing legal practice and several close friends, he is lonely, even more so after the recent death of his father. He needs a wife—a companion through life, someone to hold and be held by. What he wasn’t expecting was to be torn away from everything he knew and find said woman in 2016…
Erin Barnes has a lot of stuff going on in her life. She doesn’t need the additional twist of a stranger in weird outdated clothes, but when he risks his life to save hers, she feels obligated to return the favour. Besides, whoever Duncan may be, she can’t exactly deny the immediate attraction.
The complications in Erin’s life explode. Events are set in motion and to Erin’s horror she and Duncan are thrown back to 1715. Not only does Erin have to cope with a different and intimidating world, soon enough she and Duncan are embroiled in a dangerous quest for Duncan’s uncle, a quest that may very well cost them their lives as they travel through a Scotland poised on the brink of rebellion.
Will they find Duncan’s uncle in time? And is the door to the future permanently closed, or will Erin find a way back?
About the Author
Had Anna been allowed to choose, she’d have become a time-traveller. As this was impossible, she became a financial professional with two absorbing interests: history and writing. Anna has authored the acclaimed time travelling series The Graham Saga, set in 17th century Scotland and Maryland, as well as the equally acclaimed medieval series The King’s Greatest Enemy which is set in 14th century England.
More recently, Anna has published The Wanderer, a fast-paced contemporary romantic suspense trilogy with paranormal and time-slip ingredients. While she loved stepping out of her comfort zone (and will likely do so again ) she is delighted to be back in medieval times in her September 2020 release, His Castilian Hawk. Set against the complications of Edward I’s invasion of Wales, His Castilian Hawk is a story of loyalty, integrity—and love.
Review by Coffee & Ink:
It’s 1715 and Duncan Melville reluctantly returns to his family for a funeral. He leaves town on family business with his assistant. While on the road, he encounters a strange and terrifying storm that sucks him out of his time and dumps him in the present.
Erin Barnes, a journalist, has hit a dead on a story she desperately needs to pursue. On her way home from the office during a bad storm, she nearly runs over a man who appears at first to be dressed for a Renaissance Faire. Eventually she learns the truth: Duncan Melville is displaced in time.
A crash course in modern love and culture ensues before Erin’s troubles arrive on her doorstep ready to lay claim to a family heirloom the matriarch of the criminal clan is obsessed with. Duncan and Erin have to hide in the Panic Room, but are trapped—no way out but to use the heirloom which sends them back to Duncan’s time.
Packed with adventure, this time travel novel delivers plenty of edge of your seat excitement and suspense. Highly recommended for lovers of time travel romance.
