Welcome ” to my tour stop for In Time for You by Chris Karlsen. This is a historical romance with time travel and is out now. Check out the tour page for the full schedule.
While horseback riding in the English countryside, sisters, Electra and Emily Crippen find themselves trapped in a tear in time. Thrown back to 1357 England and caught by a local noble, they are in a place that is home but as frightening and unfamiliar as an alien world would be. With no idea how the tear in time came about, the one thing they do know is: they must stay together and stay near to where the event took place in hopes of discovering the way back to their modern life. That certain need to stay together is the first certainty taken from them when one sister is forced to remain in England and one is sent miles away to Wales by royal order.
There is one other hope for help the sisters don’t know exists. It’s Electra’s lover, Roger Marchand. A time traveler himself, he never told her of his past. When he realizes what has happened to the sisters, he enlists the help of a scientist friend to help him open the suspected passageway through time. Any effort to save Electra and Emily will likely cost him his life. This was the time Roger came from, a time when his country, France, was at war with England. If he is discovered on English soil while searching for the sisters, he will either be killed or taken prisoner of war. Any risk is worth saving the life of the woman he loves.
In an Oyster Shell – A great story for those who love reading time travel stories. Great romance.
The Pearls – As I read the book I couldn’t get over how appropriate the title was on so many levels. It’s just one of the many details that the author took great care with. The historical facts were spot on. The tales of both time periods were weaved together well.
The romances in this story. Yes plural! Where just swoon-worthy! The relationships with the characters were pleasant and unexpected.
The characters were well-developed and really got you to turn the pages. I felt that this was shown best in depicting historical characters. The author really brought them to life.
The Sand – The love scenes are on the explicit side.
