Overview

Drawn together across centuries, will their love be strong enough to defeat an ancient curse?

Colonel Caleb DeCardian was fighting America’s Civil War on the side of the Union when a freak shower of ball lightning transported him to the present, along with rival and former friend, Seth Reilly. Adapting to the 21st century is hard enough for the colonel, but he also has to find Seth, who cursed him to life as a werewolf. The last thing on Caleb’s mind is romance. Then fetching Arianna Hart nearly runs him down with her car. He can’t deny his attraction to the outspoken schoolteacher, but knows he should forget her.

Arianna finds Caleb bewildering, yet intriguing: courtly manners, smoldering sensuality and eyes that glow silver at night? When she sees Civil War photographs featuring a Union officer who looks exactly like Caleb, she begins to understand the man she is falling in love with harbors multiple secrets--some of which threaten the possibility of their happiness.

Finding a decent guy who'll commit is hard enough. How can she expect Caleb to forsake his own century to be with her?

Meet the Author

Mae Clair knew from the time she entered grade school that she wanted to be a writer. She credits her parents with instilling in her an insatiable love of reading through weekly trips to the library when she was a child. Her father, an artist who tinkered with writing, encouraged her to create characters and make-believe worlds by spinning tales of far-off places on summer nights beneath the stars.

Inspired by folktales, legends and things-that-go-bump-in-the-night, she loves to blend the fantastical with the ordinary. Her heroes are known to be flawed and complex, her heroines capable, independent and sexy.

Throughout the years she has been actively involved in various writing and critique groups and is a past President of the Central Pennsylvania Writers’ Organization. She lives in Pennsylvania and is married to her high school sweetheart (a.k.a. the Love of Her Life). In her downtime she enjoys reading, digital scrapbooking and unwinding with her husband by the pool when the fickle PA weather permits. A self-admitted idealist, Mae is passionate about writing, old photographs, a good Maine lobster tail and cats.

    This is one of my favorite books so far this year.

    Romance, paranormal, time travel, Civil War history. lovely writing -- it just pushed all my buttons. The romance (or courtship) between Caleb and Annie was sweet and hot -- and kept me turning the pages and staying up too late at night. Highly recommend!

    A MUST read!

    If you like old-fashioned gentlemanly manners in a hot guy who just happens to turn into a werewolf once in a while, you will LIKE this book! Add in a little time travel, romance, action, history, a beautiful school teacher, a rich town playboy with a secret past, a love story or two, murder, and a villainous alpha werewolf and you will LOVE this book!

    Colonel Caleb DeCardian, formerly of the Civil War, now of the 21st century because of a freak shower of 'ball lightning,' not only has to deal with the trauma of being thrust into the future, but turns all furry and dangerous every 29 days. He was cursed by a former friend to life as a werewolf. Add to that, the fact that said former friend also got sent to the 21st century, is also a more powerful werewolf and is out to kill Caleb, now hardly seems the time for Caleb to be falling in love, especially when he wants to go home to the 19th century without the hated curse.

    Enter Arianna Hart, Civil War buff, school teacher, and everything Caleb could want. She is a force to be reckoned with, as well as sweet, spicy, and also attracted to Caleb.

    Mae Clair has colored outside the lines in writing this book. Sure, there are a 'few' paranormal romances out there that 'may' mention time travel, werewolves, good guys, bad guys, stuff like that, but the way this book is put together will get under your skin from page one! A book like WEATHERING ROCK is why I love to read! The characters are lifelike, they have emotions, they have depth! The scenes are well-crafted and intense. There are twists and turns! There are moments that choked me up. There is one character in particular that completely took me by surprise in the best way!

    WEATHERING ROCK is definitely a romantic, warm, feel-good tale with some of the most powerful scenes I have ever read! Did I mention 'didn't see that one coming' twists that grab at your heart?

    Loved this book! Watching for more from this author!

    Mae Clair was kind enough to offer this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Mae!

    Fantastic, unique story!

    This book has it all. Contemporary romance, historical fiction, time travel, werewolves… What more could you possible want! It’s this glorious combination that Mae Clair combines to tell a fascinating tale. I was hooked from page one and fell in love with all of the characters (well, except for that one dirt bag). Not only did Mrs. Clair enrapture me in this story, but I fell in love with the history and the civility of Mr. DeCardian. Men from his era were full of honor, pride, and chivalry, which none were lost on him when time travelled 149 years into the future to the 21 century with the curse of turning into a werewolf every full moon.

    With plot twists on top of twists, I loved being able to put everything together piece by piece until I could finally wrap my head around how Caleb and Seth time travelled and how the horrible werewolf curse could possibly be resolved. The ending moved me to tears and though I was ready to get to the end… I didn’t want “their” story to end. (Once you read it, you’ll understand where I’m coming from here)

    When an author has the ability to make me get invested into a character(s), feel for them as if they were my own friends, cry for their happiness or their loss; I know then that it was a great story with memorable characters.

    Mae Clair has crafted a unique story, with such detail, that I could see everything unfolding in front me. Though I can’t possible imagine what could be in store for the next book of the DeCardian Family Chronicles series, I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

    I highly recommend Weathering Rock to anyone who loves a awesome story!
