Overview

From the author of Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year WIRED, comes IRREVERSIBLE:

Katharine Gibbs is popular, gorgeous, and living a life of sheer perfection. This is her Best. Week. EVER. The trouble is, it's a manufactured life in an alternate reality, a parallel world. She's lived this week over and over and doesn't know it.

It's going to take the clever work of her best friend Roxy and the help of a time-anomaly specialist known as "Q" to get Katharine out of this mess.

Yes, Walter "Q" Sheffield is hot, smart, and just the guy to free Kitty. He can split seconds, erase hours and make the most of a minute. The one thing he can't do? Relationships and dating. But in this futuristic, time-travel romance, hate and revenge have Kitty trapped in the vagaries of time, and only love and friendship will get her out.


Q's PROMISE

Q gently pressed his hand against Kitty's cheek and forced her to look at him. "I don't know exactly what's going to happen next. I don't know how, when or where the loop is going to take you, but if you want out, I need you to know something. No matter where you are, someone is on the outside chiseling that crack on the outside wall. That someone is me. If you can just try to remember me always, no matter what happens, we're going to be okay. And one day… one day I won't even have to ask you to try.

Katherine ¿Kitty¿ Gibbs is living the dream life as she is popular and engaged to a hunk who cherishes her above everything else. There is only one flaw to Kitty¿s perfect life it is a WIRED lie created by her revenge attained genius maniac lover Leonardo Kaysar, who manipulates the time-place continuum changing her reality. In fact Kitty¿s best week ever is replayed week after week after week.------------- Her best friend L. Roxanne ¿Roxy¿ Zaborovsky recently escaped from that virtual world due to the help of her lover Mason Merrick. She feels guilty having left Kitty behind in a no escape virtual programming loop. Roxy hires time-anomaly specialist Walter ¿Q¿ Sheffield to rescue her roommate from the insane machinations of Leonardo. Q relishes the mission impossible until this relationship phobic realizes only love can free her and he is the one who loves her sol he can possibly reverse the IRREVERSIBLE.------------ As good if not better than the superb WIRED (Roxy¿s tale), IRREVERSIBLE is a great romantic science fiction thriller. The story line is a one sitting fast-paced tale with the irony of the heroine has no reason to be saved from her existence. Thus the hero who stinks in reality relationships realizes only love can give Kitty a reason to break out of her ¿heavenly¿ existence, but she believes she already is in love. Liz Maverick provides a strong romantic cyber sci fi novel.----------- Harriet Klausner

The clever, determined and twisted Leonardo Kaysar has a plan to change history. When it comes to time manipulation, not only is he the best, but his current experiment will supersede all others. With Katherine Gibbs as his next fiancee and test subject, little else matters except keeping the integrity of the experimental time loop. Katherine Gibbs has everything she ever wanted: popularity, perfect friends, a great job, and a perfect fiance. She is living the best week of her life, not just once but over and over again. The only trouble is that her perfect week is not real and her best friend L. Roxanne Zaborovsky knows it. Roxanne is on the outside, separated by time and determined to do everything possible to break her friend out of her prison and out of the clutches of the infamous Leonardo Kaysar. As a time anomaly specialist, Walter Sheffield, known simply as Q, is the one man who might find a way through all the carefully laid snares and protections Leonardo has created.
