HOT ON HER TRAIL . . .

Teresa Phelps is not having a good day . . . All the lovely though quirky doctoral candidate wants to do is to buy new towels for her aunt’s coming visit and make a quick getaway to her Galveston area beach house. Then drop-dead-handsome Brit Charles Everett barges into her life . . . and abducts her at gunpoint from a Houston department store! Even more bizarre, Charles claims that Teresa is having an affair with his father. Certain she has been kidnapped by a nut case, Teresa tries reasoning with Charles, to no avail. Worse yet, they are soon confronted by an outlandish brigade of thugs, thieves and lunatics, all of whom want to kill her!

Everyone seems to want something from Teresa, including Charles, but she has no idea what it is. Could it have something to do with her brother’s recent death in a freak accident? Although Charles claims he wants to protect Teresa, the greatest danger may be to her heart, as the sexy, debonair Brit seems determined to win her over lock, stock and barrel. What is Charles really after? Can he and Teresa solve the mystery before disaster befalls them? Or does he have an ulterior motive that may threaten her very life?

But it is the dark, sexy leader of the gang, Cole Reklaw, who soon steals Jessica’s heart and her attentions. Unlike his younger siblings who would eagerly wed her, Cole brazenly offers Jessica his bed but not his name. Can Jessica find her way back to her own time, or will her budding love for Cole alter her destiny forever? And can she perform a miracle that will reform five wayward scoundrels and their cantankerous mother before they’re all carted off to the hanging tree?

TWO BRIDES SWITCH PLACES IN TIME!

MISMATCHED BRIDES

In modern Memphis, Tennessee, beautiful, headstrong Missy Monroe has found the perfect fiancé, gorgeous and genteel Jeff Dalton, a man she can control in every way… and who bores her to tears.

Meanwhile back in antebellum Memphis, Missy’s distant cousin, shy, demure Melissa Montgomery, has been promised from birth to virile, arrogant Fabian Fontenot, a man whose fierce sensuality scares the starch out of her crinoline.

Missy and Melissa plan their weddings in the same house, on the same day, only 140 years apart.

TUMBLE IN TIME

Who would think that a misstep on the stairs could lead to such a crazy tempest in time? One minute the brides are descending the stairs to wed their fiancés; the next, they are switching places in time.

Suddenly Missy finds herself stuck in a provincial outpost of the antebellum South, as the presumed fiancée of the most insufferable, sinfully handsome man in all of history. And Melissa finds herself thrust into an amazing, bewildering new world… where she is only too happy to exchange her beast of a fiancé for the gallant soulmate who has now replaced him.

Will these two switched, mismatched brides find happiness with their destined grooms? Or will the fickle hand of Fate wreak havoc with them once again?

Tempest in Time is an all-time “keeper” in the time-travel romance genre, a full-length, hilarious, sexy romp through the past and present that gives new meaning to the phrase, “The first step is a doozy!”
