Shadows Across Time

Shadows Across Time 
Mariah Lynne
October 2015

Imagine being kidnapped and transported back in time to a 16th century French castle. 

Danielle deForet, a beautiful rare antiques dealer, is tricked into completing an appraisal on a rare French piece, when to her surprise its owner casts a spell sending them both back to 1559. Danielle learns she is the crucial link for a royal spell and finds herself guarded by a handsome knight, Aidan. They soon fall in love, and he plans a risky escape. 

Georgina, once a seer, now a mannequin in Danielle’s shop, was turned to wood by that same wizard. Her body stilled, her mind sharp, she is the lovers’ only hope to escape. If she intervenes, and the wizard finds out, he will stop at nothing to make his spell succeed, even if it means destroying Georgina, Danielle, and Aidan. 

Between The Pages 
A good fantasy/time travel romance of spells and suspense. The main characters, Danielle and Aidan, have instant attraction and lead the story with their adventurous escape. The introduction of Georgina, the wizard/gypsy fortune teller was a great addition to the plot.

3.5 Stars

How very creative to come up with such a plot full of surprises and wizardry. Sounds good!

Thank you Gini. I fell in love with Chenonceau castle after a visit and saw its beautiful location on the river firsthand. The waters flow underneath the castle. The apothecary piqued my imagination after I learned that many royal poisons were mixed there. It was the perfect setting for SHADOWS ACROSS TIME.
