Regency/Contemporary Time Travel
approx 28,000 words
(re-release with 6000 words added)
Suffering from burnout, elementary school teacher Sandra Cranston is on leave and trying to eliminate stress from her life. That plan is blown when she discovers an abandoned carriage deep in the woods. Inside is a man, Jerrod Ross, who fuels all of her wicked Regency dreams and fantasies. Take him home? Sure, why not?
Jerrod Ross has been ripped from the only world he has ever known—1821 Cornwall, England. A mine owner with many responsibilities, all he wants to do is return to his time. But his growing attraction for the lovely lady who found him makes staying in the future a temptation he finds hard to resist.
Torn between duty and desire, past and future, the hardest thing Sandra and Jerrod will do is admit their feelings. Or say—goodbye.
Coming late spring/early summer from KG Publishing
This was the very first manuscript that was accepted and offered a contract by a publisher (Evernight Publishing) It was released in Spring 2011. I was granted the rights back and have been working on it the last several weeks, editing, revising, and adding more than 6000 words so far.
Also, this will be my first self-pubbed effort that is a re-release. I will certainly make sure I mark it as such in the blurb. I hope to release it late spring/early summer. I am not rushing. Taking my time and doing a thorough spiff and shine on it.
Isn't the cover glorious? Done by Cora Graphics. The model is Kieran from Period Images. He fits my hero Jerrod Ross to a tee. ~Cheers!
