Book SynopsisAlexandra Turner will do anything to save her twin sister. Even when she's transported back in time to Regency England. Rescuing her sister and finding her way back to her own time will take all her concentration. Falling in love is not an option. With the death of his brother, Nicholas Somerville became the ninth Marquess of Oakleigh and must return to England to take his place in society. Part of his responsibility will be to find a wife. It never occurs to him he might actually discover a woman he could love--until he meets Alex on his voyage home. Can Alex and Nicholas find a way to bridge the gap of time and circumstance? Can they overcome their fears to realize that true love transcends time? Or will a dark secret from Alex's past rear up to separate them forever?




Excerpt


   Her gaze drifted to his mouth as he spoke, fascinated by the way the scar pulled slightly at the corner.  She felt a strong urge to kiss that corner, to run her tongue along the seam and dip between his lips, along his teeth.

   He turned away, and she blinked herself back to reality.  She couldn't believe the  thoughts that kept popping into her head when she looked at him.

   And she was going to be stuck on a ship with him for almost a month.

   Dressed like a boy.

   Wonderful.

   He set off, and she rushed after him, thankful he couldn't see the blush heating her cheeks.  It was going to be a long month.

   She caught up, practically jogging to keep up with his long strides.

   He looked her briefly up and down in an assessing manner that strained Alex's nerves.  "You don't look like much of a sailor, and you're too young to have any skill as a carpenter."

   She was surprised he hadn't already uncovered her disguise.  Her instincts warned her he wouldn't be easy to fool, and she would be smart to keep her distance, even if distance was the last thing she wanted right now.  Of course, it wouldn't be a problem if he decided she really wasn't qualified to work on his ship.

   "You're wondering what possessed him to hire me.  Perhaps he took pity on me, or maybe I'm better qualified than I look," she replied haughtily, and immediately wished she could take the last part back.  Now he might think she had some sailing skill.

   He snorted, and the got the feeling amusement had replaced his annoyance, though his expression hadn't changed.

   "My guess would be pity.  He sometimes has more heart than sense."  He sighed.  "Despite some of his more -- emotional -- decisions, he's a good first mate and has served me well.  We'll have to see how you fare."  He gave her a slightly puzzled look.  "There's something about you, though.  I can't quite put my finger on it."

   Alex breathed a sigh of relief when they arrived at the tavern where she'd met the Adonis the night before.  This time of the morning everything was quiet, and they had to wait a few moments before anyone came to see what they wanted.

   A sour-faced woman entered the room, muttering about the hour and cursing under her breath.  But after a quick glance at Nicholas's face, she quieted and listened to his request.  She told them which room the first mate was in, then quickly disappeared through the door by which she had entered.

   "Follow me."  Nicholas climbed the stairs and knocked loudly on the appropriate door.  He didn't wait for an answer before pushing it open.

   The Adonis slept soundly in the middle of the large bed that dominated the room.  A blanket draped around his hips didn't disguise the fact he was naked.

   Alex had a difficult time deciding where to look.

    2. I've given in to the ebook myself (I don't have enough physical space for all my books!) but I have to admit, I prefer a printed book myself.
      I hope you enjoy Time for Love!

    3. You know, I'm in the very same situation, unfortunately.....and it makes me so sad.....because there's nothing more precious to me than an actual, physical book. I can't stand the thought of reading from a machine. I do read blog posts, but reading an ENTIRE book on a machine is such a depressing thought! I might have to succumb eventually because of the space problem, but before I do, I will make sure I read every single book I own!

      And yours will DEFINITELY be a printed book purchase!! I look forward to reading it! : )
