Romance and adventure...and a trip to where an American tradition began...

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?

Meet the Author

Sandy Loyd is a Western girl through and through. Born and raised in Salt Lake City, she's worked and lived in some fabulous places in the US, including South Florida. She now resides in Kentucky and writes full time. As much as she loves her current hometown, she misses the mountains and has to go back to her roots to get her mountain and skiing fix at least once a year.
As a sales rep for a major manufacturer, she’s traveled extensively throughout the US, so she has a million stored memories to draw from for her stories. She spent her single years in San Francisco and considers that city one of America's treasures, comparable to no other city in the world. Her California Series, starting out with Winter Interlude, are all set in the Bay Area.
Sandy is now an empty nester. Time Will Tell is the first in a series of connecting historical romances as well as a couple of contemporary romances. To date, she has published eight books besides Time Will Tell—four contemporary romances and four romantic mystery/suspense /thrillers. She strives to come up with fun characters—people you would love to call friends. And we all know friends have their baggage and when we discover what makes them tick, we come to love them even more. She doesn't skimp on the romance. And because she loves puzzles, she doesn't skimp on intrigue, either. Yet whether romantic suspense or contemporary romance, she always tries to weave a warm love story into her work, while providing enough twists and turns to entertain any reader.
Games, Giselle’s story, is due out July 2013, followed by Temptation, the third in the series which is due out in August 2013.

I really enjoyed this book. Very hard to out down! This was the first Sandy Loyd book I have ever read and I have to say I am impressed. Even though the story was regarding time travel, it was not written in a crazy, far-fetched way. She drew you into the story as though you were standing just beyond watching the whole thing play out. A must read!

This was a great time-travel story! I enjoyed every minuiI also appreciated the intimate scenes expressed in a tastefully romantic way. I don't particularly care for crude slang words to describe intimacy. There was good character development, which made you connect with each and every character.

I enjoyed this story of time travel and love. I would have enjoyed it more with less sex. The story is very good without it so why trash it with sex.

Good story. More realistic about the emotional issues such decisions would cause than other time travel novels.

For those readers who enjoy time travel and romance, this publication by Sandy Loyd is a true "double dip of enjoyment." Loyd does an excellent job of depicting the lifestyle of the 1970s in horse-breeding country in Kentucky, along with a modern era in that same location .... it's hard not to believe, as a reader, you're not part of the story. There is absolutely nothing "not to enjoy" about this book ... the story moves along quickly, the verbiage is brisk, although she sometimes gets a little bogged down in describing some scenes, and the use of real life situations and personalities of the 1870s are quite believable. Overall, I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys time travel, with a good romance theme, complemented by a realistic portrayal of the times and lifestyle of that 1870s era..

I truly wanted to like this book. I just could not. I had to stop and start so often I just gave up and. Turned to the last few pages. Glad it was free. I doubt that I would read any other books by this author.

Excellent read, great story line.  The interaction between Libby and Colin, Libby and  The Gunersons, especially Nathan Gunerson was delightful.  Time travel between 2013 and 1874, to include little tibits of how they organized The Kentucky Derby.  Awsome. A feel good, HEA story.   I will purchase the other books by this author, especially Giselle's and Simon's story. Thank you and kudos to the Author. *vrnb*

I loved this book. This is the first book of Sandy Loyd I have read and could not put it down. I was impressed with her  Writing and the story line. I even cried when Libby went back home to 2013 the last time. After reading this book and f Finding out she had books 2 and 3, I immediately purchased them to start on book 2. Ms. Loyd is a must read author!!!
