"Great time travel"
It seems all her life Suzanne Lucas has dreamed of the
Native American male or at least since she was five years
old and a visitor to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Now
needing to make an employment decision, teacher Suzanne
decides to go on a vacation back to her favorite state
park after the most intense dream yet. However, at the
park after seeing an old man, an earthquake strikes,
In the 1860s, Coyote treks to his favorite spot, Anza-
Borrego Desert State Park, to get away from things, but an
earthquake shakes things up a bit. When he reaches his
oasis, he sees the injured naked white female. His
grandfather informs him that Suzanne is the bird in the
young warrior's dreams that he has envisioned for years.
As Coyote helps heal Suzanne, they fall in love, but
avaricious miners abduct his beloved trying to ransom her
in exchange for the location of a legendary gold mine.
Even if he succumbs to their demands, neither knows
whether she will remain in the nineteenth century though
if love is the ultimate force they belong together.
Time travel romance readers will enjoy Suzanne's trek.
The story line is at its best when the two lovers are
confronted with external enemies including stormy Mother
Nature trying to bring Suzanne back to the future. The
couple is a fine pairing, but has no strife between them
as each easily accepts the other as their destined
soulmate. Still sub-genre readers will appreciate
Suzanne's journey for love and Coyote's acceptance that
his cherished one was born over a hundred years from when
