THE APPEAL OF TIME TRAVEL-TIMELESS LOVE

Time Travel as a plot device for television, movies or books, seems to ebb and flow in popularity. But the concept itself is fascinating and always appealed to me. Visiting different periods in time, the romance and adventure of being caught up in another era opens up a lot of possibilities.

Timeless Love is a sequel to Timeless Heart (both from Evernight Publishing) and follows the only woman passenger in the carriage. I thought I would be different and instead of having the heroine go back in time as they do in most time travel romances, I would send mine into the future. But not too far, Lady Catherine Worthington lands in 1969!


How could two people from different eras cross the chasm of time to find love, happiness? The essence of my story is two people, seemingly lost, adrift for different reasons, find what is missing in their lives, in each other. Can they reach across 'oceans of time', throw out that lifeline and rescue one another?

My hero is Joey Indelli, a very tall and dangerously sexy guy who happens to be a shadowy underworld figure. Lady Cathy is determined to find a way home, while 1969 is fascinating, she doesn't want to stay.
In all time travel movies or books, the big decision comes. Does the person stay in the future or the other person go back to the past with the time traveller? Is love enough to make such a sacrifice? Personally, as much as I might love the other person, could I go back to 1821? No electricity? No flushing toilets? No Ipod Touch? No Pepsi?

So that is my question. (Just go with the fantasy) Pretend you're unattached, young and open for adventure! Tell me, could you do it? If a 6'2" hunk of Regency virile hotness wearing incredibly tight breeches held out his masculine hand and said, 'Come with me', with that deep, come-to-bed voice, would you go? Why or why not?



BLURB for timeless love

1969—Underworld enforcer Joey Indelli didn't expect an English Regency Era carriage to appear before his very eyes in a thunderbolt of light. Inside he discovers a disoriented beauty, the honorable and delectable Catherine Worthington.

Catherine finds herself immediately attracted to her rough and very masculine rescuer but is determined to return to her home in 1821 Cornwall, England.

Seeing the carriage appear in front of him, Indelli believes her story but is convinced she has no choice but to stay in 1969.

Will the love that develops between them fade with their parting or somehow keep them together and prove...timeless?

  2. Time travel to present day (sort of)! Love the concept. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I'd probably go back in time, or stay in the future if I was from the past, because I'd be in love. Love and happiness is worth anything, especially if the man is a sexy beast who worships my feet. LOL!

  3. I would probably go because once you have that person, anything can't be that bad.

  4. Hell yes I'd go! If I were unattached and in love, I'd definitely take the leap. Otherwise, I think I'd always regret it and pine away for the one that got away.

  6. Always willing to take the risk, with some limits. This life is too short to guess on "what ifs". Yes, I would. Gotta to do something just once. Life is to be enjoyed and living on the sidelines.

  7. I wrote Regency romance for a long time before tackling paranormal so basically my answer has to be 'yes I'd go!'. The breeches and snug coats, plus boots, were damn sexy!

    Best,

  8. I have to agree with the other comments here, I think if I found that one true love I would stay in the time period so there wouldn't be that what if. As long as there is love, I think you can eventually get used to either having or not having depending on the time period.

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
