I love time travels. Usually, either the hero or the heroine goes back in time or travels forward in time. But in Donna Steele’s Another Time, both the hero and heroine travel back in time. This allows for more interaction and less introspection so they come to the realization that time travel is real much sooner. Naturally, they have their moments of doubt, but rather than read what the character is thinking, Dee and Dusty discuss what’s happened to them and we get to see how they respond to the situation as well as how they respond to one another.
Another Time is a spicy romance with an eco message that doesn’t bash you on the head but instead, makes you reflect on how the world might have turned out differently.
What if the big oil companies had never gained footing in America? What if there’d been more exploration into solar, wind, and water power? What if we’d never invented one use products but instead, had invested time and energy into renewable resources?
Filled with humor and bits of interesting historic and scientific details, this is one of the most unique and fun time travel romances I’ve ever read. I’m looking forward to the next book in The Guardians of Now series.
When Dusty Williams walks into a strange bar to contemplate the ruination of his career, the last thing he expects to find is a compelling woman. He’s not even in the mood for a one-night stand. He just wants to escape from all humanity.
Dee Stevens can’t believe she’s in a bar at all. She’s just lost two patients due to drunk driving. Whatever could have drawn her into a strange bar tonight, of all times?
When the two meet, and they feel an odd vibration that seems to pull them together, they have no idea what’s ahead, or behind, them . . . and what it can mean for mankind.
Her eyebrow rose but she didn’t push away his hand as his finger traced the
stitching of her jeans along her outer thigh.
“Tell me about this trip.” She glanced over at him.
“I’d rather talk about when I get back.”
“We can do that too. Tell me what kind of meeting you’re attending.”
“We have a contract with a firm in Denver for a solar farm. It’s experimental and I’ve
incorporated some new designs. They can’t seem to follow my directions. My supervisor is going along to ensure I don’t call them morons to their faces and screw up the deal.”
“Would you do that?”
“Not on purpose, but my feelings might leak out the side.”
“You don’t accept mediocrity.”
He shrugged. “I never thought about it that way. I mean, the designs are written out.
If they follow the directions . . .”
“Is the information in words of one syllable? Maybe they don’t have anyone as good
as you at their end.”
The discomfort the topic had started vanished. “Thanks. Like I told you last night,
I’m not good with people. Leave me alone to work and I do great.”
“Last night with me was on the great side.”
“You’re the exception proving the rule. Besides, no one else gives me the buzz you
She laughed out loud. “What is that, anyway? You’re right. I’ve never felt anything
like it before.”
“No clue, but I’m damn grateful. I haven’t been this non-stressed since I can
“Don’t tell me you aren’t good with people. That didn’t even sound like a line.”
“Because it wasn’t. Intellectually I’m aware I don’t know you, yet . . .”
She nodded, her eyes on the road. “I agree.”
That’s when the world turned upside down.
