Soul mates separated by time. Destiny intervenes.
Undercover American operative Rodger Ramsey never anticipated encountering a runaway bride amidst the vast salt flats of Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni. The alluring woman triggers his protective instincts, but her insistence that she’s traveled two hundred years through time tests his patience. It’s 1963, and he’s a man of science, not fantasy.
Forced into an arranged marriage, Leonora Harris flees her husband’s home and stumbles through an underground vortex. Now adrift in a vibrant yet unfamiliar land, she seeks solace in the arms of a captivating stranger. Passion ignites, and the notion of returning to eighteenth-century England fades into oblivion.
Time is not on their side. Rodger’s duty calls him back to the States, and Leonora is trapped without a passport. How will they stay together, or will she survive in this strange new world alone?

Leonora Harris, who came from an influential family due to her father being a judge, has been forced to marry Lucas Kenway. Lucas’s father the baron is a cold, heartless man and on her wedding night when she overheard him talking, she realized she couldn’t live in the same house as him. She also was sure that his son would follow in his footsteps.

All Leonora wants is to return to her home and get her father to annul her marriage, but she gets lost and finds herself in a cave. A bright light was all she saw until she woke up in a strange place. Rodger Ramsey finds her wandering and offers her help. This would be the start of a life-changing experience for them both.

Roger is working undercover for the CIA so taking in a strange woman is not very smart, but he can’t just leave her on her own. When Leonora reveals she is from 1725 he is convinced she is crazy but the more time he spends with her and her lack of knowledge about simple things like using a bathroom, using a stove and other things begins to make him wonder if she is indeed from the eighteenth century.

Leonora was always a wild child, she dreamed of marrying for love, of experiencing things not available to women in that age but now she is in Bolivia, 1963 and everything is different. She is still dressed in her wedding gown and Rodger takes her shopping for clothes. Borrowed books and magazines give Leonora a taste of what the 60’s are like and how women are treated.

Spending time together Leonora does what is totally unexpected she approaches Rodger for sex. She wants to know what it feels like, and he is the one she picks to educate her. Rodger’s first response is no but he can’t say no for long. Their first time leads to nightly and both of them fall into a partnership of sorts. Rodger knows that she has no papers so bringing her to the United States when he is called home is impossible and yet leaving her is just as impossible. She doesn’t know the language and can only get work if it is with an unreliable and usually illegal establishment.

When Rodger finally confesses what he is and how he would have to leave one day Leonora is heartbroken, but she will not stand in his way.

In book one it was time-travel from the present to the past, this book is the past to the present and both were fascinating to watch how two women had to learn to adjust to their new way of life. This is a series that I can’t recommend highly enough.
