Ever think about time travel? Ever think of what you would or could show someone from the past? The narrative is a pure love story where the hero tries to get the girl, hoping to live happily ever after, while working his way through dangerous situations, dealing with a treacherous adversary who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. The highly dramatic ending will have you hanging on the end of your chair...will he or won't he? Sorry, you have to get the book to find out what? ******* This romance opens in 19th century England where Damien Whitehall, Duke of Norfolk, has been having strange dreams of falling into a deep, dark hole and being rescued by a green-eyed lady in white. Smuggler Lord Richard Downing cheats Damien's brother out of the Whitehall fortune. Damien devises a plan to get back his family's wealth. One dark, stormy night, dressed as a highwayman, he steals Lady Downing's jewels and by some mysterious trick of nature, he is transported through time. Focus shifts to the present. American Mary Ann Downing receives word that she has inherited half of a manor in England. She and her friend Sara travel to London to look over Mary Ann's inheritance and make arrangements to sell her half to her cousin, Richard Downing. Sara falls in love with a portrait of Damien at Whitehall Manor and is shocked to meet him when he travels through time. Can Damien once again try to save his home and his life from the descendent of the man who tried to kill him in the past?

The story is a spellbinding time travel voyage, filled with passionate seduction, shocking deceit and grand adventure. The love scenes are tasteful, yet lusty and amorous. The characters are well-rounded and believable. The adventure is very fast paced with action upon action making the reader want to continue to see what will happen next. I was drawn into the romance when Sara first stared into Damien¿s eyes in his portrait. I was excited when they first meet in the woods. I felt Sara¿s apprehension as she realized that the duke had traveled through time and her imaginary love was very much alive as held her to the ground and took his first kiss from her. I felt disgust for Richard Downing as well as his descendent and wondered what they would do to rid their lives of the young duke. As I read the story, I empathized with the hero coming to my own conclusion on what would happen to him and was surprised and anxious upon the conclusion. If you want an enjoyable, yet highly sexual adventure, then read the book and take pleasure in the happy ending. Damien¿s dark good looks will capture your heart from the first chapter and will be come an unforgettable hero.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
