A bad hair day? Or the adventure of a lifetime…?
Abandoned in a Rocky Mountain cabin, hairdresser Jackie Clarke wonders if a bad hair day can get any worse after smooth-talking lover Blade makes off with her car, her cash and her dignity.
Her answer comes when a blizzard strands her in a ghost town, then a blazing inferno and a lewd painting thrust her back to 1891, where she is mistaken for famous saloon singer, Lolita Belle.
Cole Morrison is a single father and reluctant gold-miner-turned-kidnapper. Desperation forces him into the battle between warring mining town saloons over Lolita Belle. Why does anyone want that sassy redhead anyway? She can't carry a tune, but Lolita-who-calls-herself-Jackie may be the answer to all his dreams….
Is Jackie still having a bad hair day…? Or is this miner with a heart of gold the spa treatment of a lifetime…?

What a great time travel - a neon-red, smart mouthed hairdresser! I really enjoyed this book, and there are so few time travel books out there, I get so excited when I find one I love! Cole is a one of the best hero's as a tormented single dad! There are so many funny moments in this book, I laughed out loud so much my dog left the room!
Beauty shop owner Jackie Clarke feels like a fool for agreeing to stay at a cabin high in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Her companion Blade Smith deserted Jackie, who begins to hike down just as snow begins to fall. Desperate to get out of the wet and cold, Jackie enters the abandoned saloon of a ghost town. She lights a fire that gets out of control. When Jackie awakens, she finds the saloon filled with people and learns the year is 1891 not 2000. The owner Rupert Goodfellow mistakenly thinks she is the saloon girl Lolita Belle who he just paid good money for her renowned lungs even though he is disappointed in seeing Jackie¿s bust line. Widower Cole Morrison knows he has let his deceased spouse and his son down by not being able to move to Oregon. When Rupert¿s rival offers him gold to abduct Lolita, he agrees though he never committed a crime in his life. Cole succeeds in kidnapping Jackie, who he temporarily hides as part of his business deal. As Jackie and Cole become acquainted they fall in love, but as soon as that painting is completed, she will reenter to return to the future. Deb Stover is renowned combining wit and passion in wonderful romantic tales. Her latest time travel story, A MOMENT IN TIME, will add to her reputation as one of the leading authors of today. The story line is humorous, enjoyable and brings a bygone era to life. The lead couple is fun to watch especially Jackie¿s abilities to play on Cole¿s feelings of guilt. A sequel starring the real Lolita and Blade sounds delightful and hopefully Ms. Stover accommodates are myriad of fans with their novel. Harriet Klausner
