About the Author

Dante Craddock is a pen name. I have chosen to use a pen name because I plan on eventually writing in multiple genres. Why Dante Craddock you may ask? That name appealed to me. In the name lies a secret. It is for you, the reader, to discover this secret. If you can discover this secret, a prize will be waiting for you. E-mail me with your answer. Under the name Dante Craddock, I write Paranormal Romance (PNR). These stories will center around the magic that is love. A magic that flows between two people in love. For when two people fall in love, they create a magic that is all their own. Magic that has the power to do incredible, unexplainable things. In the Power of Love Quartet I explore this magic. The first of the Quartet is A Love Beyond Time.
I have been writing for over a decade now, but have not finished any of the ideas that I have until recently. Why PNR you may ask? I kind of just fell into that genre. I started working on A Love Beyond Time as a simple love story, but it eventually evolved into its present form as the first book in the Power of Love Quartet. Along the way it became a PNR. Looking back at it I have realized that it was always heading in that direction.
I am an organic writer. I get ideas from the world around me. From everything I read, see, or hear. The ideas seem to pop out of nowhere at times. Others are triggered by some event. An example of this happening would be the idea for my first novel, A Love Beyond Time. Some years ago I saw the music video for the song Whiskey Lullaby by Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss. A question popped into my head. What if they were given a second chance? From that question came the origins of what became A Love Beyond Time.
I am currently working on A Memory of Love, the sequel to A Love Beyond Time.

*This ebook was provided on behalf of the author in exchange for an honest review* I am writing this review at 59% because I wanted to remember my reviews, I'm actually considering writing my reviews at each stop point I make because it goes to show what you forget and how your perceptive changes while reading. I hate the fact the reading has taken a back burner and so the length of time is not always a reflection on the book however I want to say that I started this book at the end of March some time, and some night's I think, I'll read a little but then I remembered I wasn't that into the book and just went to sleep. That's changed. Last Friday I was sat in my car waiting for my Dad because he was sorting his pigeons out and carried on reading regardless of the fact that I felt the plot was slow. I never give up on a book because there is always something niggling saying 'keep going' So I picked it back up around the point where our main character Ashley, exhausted from sleep, is in her house with her boyfriend and friends generally having a night in when she's drawn to watch the news and BAM we have movement in the story, away from reading about her suffering sleep and collecting the pieces of the puzzle to, lets say, getting the outer edge completed. Instantly we know that we're getting somewhere and after that, it is an even paced roller coaster ride. We find out more about Gavin and that her dreams are memories. She's been remembering the life of Gavin all this time. How he died and how he felt, we experience both sides through her. We also learn about his love interest (sorry, I'm calling her Gen because my kindle isn't to hand and can't think or begin to spell it) and the story itself, along with Gavin and Gen's story gets interesting. Luckily this morning, I got the chance to laze in bed on a day off and so I managed to read about 25% of the book and I only put it down because I had the feared warning *Warning, battery 10%* I have never read a book that revolved around something like this. Sure, I've had time travel but this is about two past souls (hopefully) reconnecting even though it's 200 years later. I'm also interested in the fact the Neil has seen a ghostly woman. He's not a believer in the supernatural and so far, hasn't been a major participant in the ancient memories so it's got me puzzled. I'd also like to know how he's got over someone he loves so quickly! I'm thinking about memorising her words and blurting them at people as I type. Damn! It's a great plot and theory, I just needed more action at the start to keep me glued to it. I'm now getting that and Can't wait to finish the story. 100% I finished the story this morning, and feel like something was lacking in areas. I feel like a lot of the energy went into the story at the start, explaining and building up to it that at the end the author kind of rushed it and skimmed parts, but then again I'm unable to put my finger on what it was missing. I guess it could be the chemistry between Alex and Ashley. It also came to my attention that Ashley was quite abrupt with the way she spoke to Alex, she chucked a hell of a lot at him and wanted miracles to happen, when you knew it wouldn't. She expected a lot. Because of that, I couldn't give the book 5 nerd glasses, I only 4 because as a whole the story and theories within it where good. It was a new concept to me and one that I'd like to read more of so I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the next one... the story as it ended was slightly open although I can't see where it would go from there, obviously by their being more, the author can, which keeps a reader guessing which is a great thumbs up. A love beyond time is a great alternative if you like time travel, which in theory it has an essence to it, and would recommend to anyone who likes that genre.

I couldn't put down. The love story never told like this before. Search for true love has many obstacles to get to him. It's the obstacles and her friends that make it a perfect read. The clues left along the way keep you wanting more. You will feel like you are with Ashley on her journey to find him. Must read. I highly recommend. One of the best books I've read. Buy it now you will not be disappointed.

The first in Craddock’s the "Power of Love Quartet," is an intelligent story of true love in its most creative form. The use of description throughout the novel is very well done, making you feel as though you’re the one experiencing it for yourself. My heart was caught in moments of flutter, sadness, and hope for the two souls in this novel. Without giving too much away, you watch as Ashley Brannock’s life is turned upside down as she begins having dreams. With the dreams taking over her life, she seeks help from therapist and even a regression hypnotist. Throughout her journey to finding out what her dreams mean, you’re taken into a whole new world of possibilities on the meaning of true love.  I would recommend this novel to anyone that wants a refreshing take of true love. It’s a story that will have you wanting to know more, thus leaving you waiting for the second in the quartet, "A Memory of Love." Bravo Dante, for devising something new and wonderful! I greatly enjoyed this and can’t wait to read the next in the series.

This was an interesting story. It had several twists that were hard to predict and difficult to follow if you didn't keep reading. I often felt disjointed in my enjoyment of the story. I didn't always see the reasoning behind what was happening, but sometimes would piece it together later. Overall, the ideas shared in this book were pretty unique. I liked the read, but felt gaps weren't always filled in and some things were too drawn out. Hoping we find out what happens with Neil in the next book. Want to know what is going on with Veronica. Like Elena and Matt, but they didn't have a large part in this story, so it was easy to ignore them (until we find out his involvement from the beginning, in the end...so now I have questions). Ashley and Alex seem to be getting their HEA, but I have reservations on how some of that feels to me. Glad I completed the entire book, as anything less than a thorough read will not make sense at all. ARC provided in exchange for honest review.

The paranormal of A Love Beyond Time intrigued me.    The fact that Ashley has memories from a man who lived and died so long ago and how real they felt kept me reading.  I wanted to know who the man was, why was his memories coming to her, and who was Alex.   The fact that Ashley did not let these memories go, she did what she needed to find out the answers that she really needs.  Then she follows her heart and traipses across the US to find the love of her life, who she has never met.    Ashley kept me entertained and wondering what she was going to find herself into next. I really enjoyed watching Ashley and her best friends, aka the EVA’s, interact.   Their friendships were the truest kind of friendship.   They had each other’s back no matter what the situation was.  They knew when to push and when to step back from each other.   Even across the country they could interact and support each other when needed.  I could not put the book down.  I truly enjoyed reading it and am looking forward to the rest of this series.
