Kurt Meyer is the father of four, resident of Noblesville and a lifelong Hoosier. He’s been a newspaper columnist, a Realtor specializing in marketing historic properties, a restorer of multiple Victorian-era homes and co-founder of an annual literary journal called the Polk Street Review.
Libby Edwards, a gifted horsewoman, unwittingly wishes herself back in time to Louisville, Kentucky just before Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby become a reality. During Libby’s journey in the past, she stumbles upon her destiny. Unfortunately, he’s in the wrong century. In 1874, there’s no electricity, no internet, no modern medicine, no antibiotics—no Starbucks! And even worse than that, women have no rights. Libby has no desire to stay.
Widower, Colin Thorpe, a renaissance man of his time, has big dreams. He is a horse breeder who names his thoroughbreds after Mythological Gods because he has a reverence for past cultures and an appreciation for the unexplainable.
Libby and Colin can’t resist falling in love with each other. After all, Colin accepts Libby for who she is and she understands Colin’s dreams better than his deceased wife ever did. Yet he grasps early on that Libby doesn’t belong in 1874. And because his wife never adapted to the move from Virginia to Kentucky, becoming bitter and unhappy in the process, he won’t take the chance of the same thing happening to Libby. Can these two lovers find a way to be together despite their challenges?
The stroke of surprisingly gentle hands, the flash of fathomless blue eyes, the scorch of white-hot kisses . . . Once again, Dr. Harriet Ginoza is swept away into rapturous fantasy. The modern psychologist knows the rough and ruthless man of her dreams is everything she should despise, a quintessential male chauvinist, yet time after time, she finds herself lost in visions of a dangerously handsome rogue straight out of a historical romance.
Harriet never believed that her dream lover would cause her any trouble, but when a twist of fate casts her back to the Old South she meets him in the flesh! To her disappointment, Etienne Baptiste refuses to ravish her and fulfill her secret wishes. If Harriet has any hope of making her amorous dreams become passionate reality, she'll have to seduce this charmer with a sweeter savage love than she'd imagined possible . . . and savor every minute of it.
