Two people, worlds apart in upbringing and social mores, knowing they can never belong together... And you thought you had a difficult relationship. When modern women are dragged from their own time into the past, they find themselves facing life and death struggles, where their every action, even every word they utter, could change history as they know it. Yet love can form a bond so strong that it even breaks down the vast barriers of time.
When a man wearing Napoleonic-era clothing washes up on her falconry island off the Jersey shore during an electrical storm, Riki van Hamel isn’t alarmed—at first. She assumes he’s a war-gaming friend of her cousin David, who disappeared during a similar storm two years before. But the man seems confused by every modern convenience—and one of David’s recreation battle scenes changes mysteriously so it shows the French nearly winning. The man—who claims to be Viscount Belmont, a member of the British War Office during the Peninsular War—identifies David as his own assistant. The fear that David was dragged back through time and is using his knowledge to change history terrifies Riki. She and Belmont risk setting sail in the storm to travel back to 1812 to prevent David from doing any more damage. But her determination to bring her cousin back to the present becomes a torment as she and the viscount realize theirs is a love that spans the ages—though they will soon be separated by two hundred years.
