GENRE: New Adult, contemporary
Kate is ready to start a new life in a great city. Determined to follow her dream, she left college to write a book. Arriving in New York City, she vows to live in the present, not the past. Easy for most to say, except she has a secret. Kate is a time traveler. She met the love of her life back in 1927. But he’s here now. No looking back. No going back.
EXCERPT (Exclusive Excerpt):
“You were eighteen at the time?” Charlotte closed one eye as she stared at Kate. “And you quit school to write this book about Freddie?”
“I wanted to quit before that. College wasn’t for me.” Kate winced, thinking how immature that sounded. “I had different dreams. I want to write this book, promote Jack Woods’ books and start a publishing company.”
“Those are big dreams. Is Freddie to help you with that, too?” She reached for her glass.
“I’ll get you a refill, dear.” Freddie leaned toward her.
“No, you sit. I’ll get it myself.”
Kate waited until Charlotte walked out of ear shot. “Freddie! She thinks I’m taking advantage of you.”
“Don’t worry. I can handle her. Isn’t it better she think that than know the truth?” He winked.
“That I really found you? And you almost died when you saw your much younger brother? She’d love to know that.”
“It was an asthma attack.”
“Still.” Kate folded her arms. “You could’ve had a heart attack. What was I thinking? I handled it all wrong.”
“I liked the way you handled it.”
“Two teenagers show up at your office, one looking like your dead brother, and you were fine with it?” Kate asked in a loud whisper.
