Overview

RIGHT MAN, WRONG TIME: A romantic getaway vacation--in the pre-Civil War Ozarks? What if, alone and lost in a Missouri Ozarks cave in the 21st Century, you stumble through an exit--and land in the lap of an aromatic man in 1859? Not your idea of the perfect vacation? Then pity Susa Hildebrand, dependent for survival on a cranky aerial photographer whose government mission outranks helping her find her way home, and whose assets include transportation (mules), food (beans), protection (a rifle), and a lusty aura. She also has to wear an ugly dress until someone even unluckier shows up in the dangerous, male-dominated border area. Bickford Pelletier can be mighty persuasive, though, and if she has to live in his time, Susa could do a lot worse. But what about the teenage twins she left behind?

A STAR IN THE EARTH: It's 1907. Alerted by her time-traveled parents (MOON NIGHT) that Jake Livingston, 39, plans to wed Marguerite Desmond, willful Emilee Schuyier, 19, charges home to Boulder, Colorado to set him straight. The problem is, how do you seduce the man who's loved you like a big brother from the day you were born? Emilee tackles the problem obliquely. She and Jake are privy to knowledge of important coming events through the 'future history' remembered by her parents, now touring in Europe. Announcing her appointment as the new vice-president of Schuyier Enterprises, Emilee tries to convince Jake, the new president, to begin SE's development of a luxury resort the family will transform into a rehabilitation hospital after the coming World War. Jake is adamantly against her choice of site. Emilee, however, has learned to dowse, and has her own way of knowing things. A German friend of Marguerite wants to buy a defunct silver mine owned by Emilee. She refuses to sell it to the "Kaiser's man," claiming her dowsing rods indicate the mine still holds valuable ore. Jake's new secretary, young Anthony Parmenter, becomes Emilee's secret ally. He introduces her to his uncle, who offers to loan SE the money to purchase and renovate the resort site Emilee wants. Jake is a stubborn man, and enamored of his passionate fiancee. Emilee is certain she knows what's best for Jake, and her name isn't Marguerite. Meanwhile Anthony and Amos Carruthers, a young architect-about-town, vie for Emilee's affection. Jake has his hands full.
