Years from Home Book 1

As false accusations of witchcraft consume Salem Village, eighteen-year-old Poppy Seabrooke, a true witch, is content to stay away from the hysteria and more importantly from the relentless advances of Angus Wolfe, a powerful warlock masquerading as Salem’s pastor. When Poppy uses her magic to help a young boy, she is arrested. Angus is the only person who can help her, but, in return, she must promise her hand in marriage. In desperation, Poppy’s grandmother sends her two hundred years into the future to hide. Poppy finds herself years from home in the middle of a strange place called Montana where rooms light up without candles or sorcery, steam puffing dragons roar across fields on tracks, and cows sprout horns as long as tree trunks. And while Poppy hides from the man who turns her heart cold as ice, she discovers the man who can set it on fire.

Cade Tanner has always lived fast and hard, and he prefers it that way. The last thing he needs is a girl to distract him from running the cattle ranch his father left him. But Poppy, the sweetly innocent beauty with the soft smile and dark eyes, who seemingly fell from the sky, is tough to ignore. But Cade soon finds that falling for Poppy comes with a dangerous price.

    Bad

    It was good until you get to the end and it stops with a cliffhanger and bn doesnt have the others except in an expensive box set. I really hate it when authirs does this. They give you a short novelette for free to lure you in then charge you for the others. Either put them all in one decent size book and charge for it or not,but stop chopping them into little pieces just to try and make more money. Tat just makes me not want to buy any more.

    Young Adult

    A light and fun read. I wouldn't really specify this novel as 'Mature'. Love scenes were not graphic, language was not offensive. A better job could have been done editing and spell checking as these faults will drive a reader nuts.

    This was such a great story! The premise was definitely unique,

    This was such a great story! The premise was definitely unique, time travel with a twist. Poppy is an 18-year-old who lives with her grandmother and her sister in 1692 Salem. When Poppy is accused of witchcraft, her grandmother – a witch – sends her 200 years into the future to keep her safe. But instead of ending up in a future Salem, Poppy ends up in 1892 Montana.

    Poppy is such a great character. She is innocent due to the time and place she grew up in and curious about the new world around her. It was really fun to watch her explore each new thing she discovered. Everyone seems to fall in love with her, even when they are trying hard not to. Caden is also a great character. I loved him. He has a roughness to him that makes him irresistible, but can also be so sweet. I enjoyed both of their points of view throughout the story.

    As far as historical fiction goes, this did not disappoint. The author's writing and language seemed realistic for the time periods within the story and really helped to bring the story to life.

    Distraction is full of magic, danger, and love. Poppy is sent in

    Distraction is full of magic, danger, and love. Poppy is sent into the future to escape a Warlock who wants her for his own. Now in a strange time and place, Poppy feels lost. The only thing that really keeps her centered is Cade. Cade is a stubborn, hard headed, and cocky rancher that does his best to ignore Poppy, but she has gotten under his skin and he cannot deny the connection between them. Poppy and Cade are thrown into a crazy adventure to keep Poppy safe.

    Tess Oliver has written a sweetly romantic tale that is sure to capture your heart. Poppy and Cade compliment each other very well. Their chemistry is like a steadily growing flame. The more they are together hotter it gets. The elements of time travel and magic give this story the fantasy aspect that keeps the plot interesting. Be aware….that once you start reading you will not want to put it down!

    LOVED IT!!!!

    Poppy a witch from Salem, Massechusetts during the 1600's is put in prison for witchcraft. Resident Warlock Angus who is mascarading as a priest makes a deal with Poppy, she will be released from prison if she agrees to marry him. She does right before her grandmother comes to save her. So she decides to stall time a bit by sending Poppy back in time only Angus interferes and Poppy is sent careening 200 years into the future and hundreds of miles from home.
    Once there she is rescued by Cade and taken in by his family. They fall in love but Angus comes and ruins everything. This cliffhanger ending has left me chomping at the bit for more.
    This author is a MASTER STORYTELLER! I admire the emotions she evokes through the characters and you definately feel for them.

    By M. Grigsby I just love a good paranormal romance and when



    By M. Grigsby

    I just love a good paranormal romance and when mixed with historical fiction you cannot help but have a winning combination. "Distraction" is a wonderful tale that shows just how merciless people were in sacrificing women's lives and happiness during the Salem Witch trials all for personal gain.

    Poppy and her sister Mari live with their grandmother Nonni after being rescued from an orphanage. They truly are witches but not the bad sort. They use their powers to help others. Unfortunately, the evil minister, Ethan Wolfe has designs on Poppy and will do anything to get his hands on her including having her arrested and charged with being a witch. Of course the slimy dog will make the charges go away and keep her sister Mari from being charged as an accomplice if Poppy enters a blood pack and agrees to marry him.

    Poppy agrees just before her grandmother comes to rescue her. When Nonni finds out about the pack, she catapults Poppy into the future 200 years to 1892. Poppy discovers a whole new world, with more freedom and conveniences for women and the man she has been dreaming of all of her life. However, good things don't last forever and Ethan eventually shows up. What will happen to our heroine and will she have to do the unthinkable and marry the flea infested dog, Ethan? You have to read the first book in this brand new trilogy to find out.

    I really enjoyed this story. Tess Oliver masterfully builds two separated and distinctive worlds: 1692 and 1892. Both were totally rich with the language and cultural norms of the times. I also loved the characters of Poppy and Cade. Additionally, the character of Ethan was so vile he made my skin crawl. I cannot wait to see what is going to happen with the story and these characters. Who knows maybe I cannot catapult. myself into the future to read the next book!
