Tempus fugit. Time flies…unless you’re Tempus Halt, Father Time’s son. Day in and day out are the same, except for New Year’s Eve when he steals the life of a mortal on behalf of the Fates. This year marks his first failure to stay the monotonous course. A mortal’s kiss and her insistence on taking the place of his year’s sacrifice stalled out everything. Now, Tempus has to keep her alive for a year so his sacrifice isn’t wasted, but that’s the only reason—definitely.
One of these crazy grim reapers stole Lacey Carpenter’s estranged father’s life two years ago. She’ll give her own life rather than letting it happen again. It backfires when Tempus doesn’t actually kill her, and they have to spend the year together. She’s falling for an immortal who stops time, not just to save her life, but also to ruin her dates and steal her books. This can never work and fate is just not on her side—in fact, they’d really like her dead before Tempus falls for her in return.

Can a kiss change your fate? Or will fate find a way to get her way? Tempus, one of Father's Time sons, done the wrong thing and now had to make sure that what he did do wont be undone. So keeping his duties seriously he had to make sure that Lacey makes it to the next New Year's eve. But let me say that fate did not take things to kindly when the will was not done. Lacey and Tempus were fun and different with some similarities. This was an interesting connection.
