"A fast-paced, often humorous time-travel"
Some days you just can't win; others you can't win and get
thrown back in time. Jackie Clarke is having one of the
latter days and that's only the beginning of her troubles.
Jackie finds herself suddenly hurled back to 1891
compliments of a glowing painting in an abandoned saloon.
She is mistaken for an infamous saloon singer named Lolita
Belle, although not all the voluptuous Miss Belle's assets
correspond and she can't sing a note that doesn't grate on
the ears like nails on a chalkboard.
Within hours, she finds herself at the mercy of a
struggling miner who kidnaps her for the gold he'll receive
from a competing saloon owner. The miner, a Mel Gibson look-
alike named Cole Morrison, is raising a son on his own. He
quickly discovers his feelings growing for his abducted
house guest and not a little guilt over the deed. Jackie
Clarke learns all kidnappers aren't created equal and the
Wild West isn't such a bad time period after all. Add to
that an ex-lover with bad intentions and greed in his
heart, and the reader is off on a rollicking adventure.
A MOMENT IN TIME is a fast-paced, often humorous read with
effervescent characters and jaunty prose, passionate love
scenes and clever turns of phrase. The ending is satisfying
(with the possible exception of the lack of explanation for
the time travel mechanism) and the journey a thrill a page.
