Dr. Laura Martin, Chief Extraterrestrial Life Scientist at The Touchstone Institute of Oceanographic Research, noticed troubling but subtle changes in the Atlantic Ocean. Before she could make sense of it all, her longtime assistant abruptly walked out. Laura hired young, handsome Scott Conner to be her personal assistant. Mayhem ensued, mainly because of Zara, the mermaid/siren/monster in the basement of the Touchstone Institute, who eyed on Scott as her possible mate in a plot for total domination of planet Earth.
“The Touchstone Institute of Oceanographic Research is the most fantastic, exhilarating place on the planet to work. It is high energy, exciting, sometimes maddening, often frightening, heart-pounding work. It’s not a job. It’s a lifetime commitment. It gets in your blood. It grabs you by the throat and possesses you, body and soul. And it is work. If you’re not prepared to work your ass off day in and day out, weekends, holidays, your birthday, and your mamma’s birthday, leave now.”

Valerie Roberson

Romance, Aliens and a Fantastic Story Line!

I love how Carol Ann Kauffman writes her stories. Sea Witch is not a part of the Time After Time series, but it sure could be. She wrote the Sea Witch the same way, love, and romance like no others. That feeling of they knew each other before, even though they didn’t. The excitement of finding true love and being together. The way the characters intertwined, the loss of one of them, only to be found again. Awwwwwe! True Love!
Dr. Laura Martin is the Chief Exraterrestrial Life Scientist at The Touchstone Institute of Oceanographic Research. Dr. Martin is looking for a research assistant. She interviewed a few ladies and next was a man. She didn’t want a man, she got along better with women. But her colleague told her to give him a chance.
Dr. Benjamin Scott Conner is up next for the interview and is excited beyond means. He has admired Dr. Martin for a very long time and it’s his dream to work with her, be next to her, love her and just have her in his arms. Well, he didn’t have a chance. She already had him kicked to the curb in her mind, but he talked her into giving him a 2-week chance, unpaid. She basically had no choice. Scott, that’s what everyone calls him, was very over-qualified and she asked to make him something more along the line of his degrees.
Now Dr. Martin has an alien woman in a holding tank for 20 years and has made a friendship with her. But when she sees Scott, the alien goes nuts screaming that he is her mate. He has no idea what she is talking about. Zara, the name given to the alien, becomes very hostile and has to be calmed with medication. Lara and Scott try to figure out what is going on and by talking about Scott’s background, Lara has an idea of how he is connected to Zara. To find out, they have to go to his Mother’s home in France. This is where you hold on to the edge of your seat and hold your breath.
Sea Witch is a Romance with SciFi and mystery added in. What a great combination! I was trying to figure it all out along the way and was surprised, very surprised to say the least in the last few chapters. The ending was all science fiction and wrapped tightly with romance. What a captivating storyline! This author gas amazing talent!

“What a great novel about a mother’s sacrifice!” – “Echo of Heartbreak, A Recipe for Life” by Carol Ann Kauffman

Carol echo blurb 2

“Echo of Heartbreak, A Recipe for Life” is a short story written in the form of a letter from a very ill mother to her unborn daughter, telling her the incidents surrounding her birth, giving her advice on life, and leaving her the best of her family recipes.

What a great novel about a mother’s sacrifice!

The first book I’ve read by this author, I was not disappointed!
As you read this book, you wonder how it will end. Will the mother be right or will there be a surprise ending? You’ll have to read the book to find out. What a bonus with the added recipes. They come from an Italian wife. Being married to an Italian and I love to cook, I can’t wait to try some of these dishes and pass them to our children. My mother in law did not cook, so we do not have the handed down, generation after generation recipes. Maybe a tradition will be started with my family, and I will pass these on? I just ordered book two to see how the story continues and ends. I can’t wait to start reading it!

“Interesting and just as enchanting as the others!” – Lord of Blakeley (Time After Time Book #6) by Carol Ann Kauffman

#AuthorNetwork ,#IndieBooksPromo, #amreading #amwriting #indiepromo

Line Blurb

The series, TIME AFTER TIME, follows a pair of quintessential lovers, Richard and Nicole, through their lives together, in different places, in different times, with different names and faces and sometimes even on other planets. This follows the alternative theory that the relationships we forge in this lifetime, both the good and the bad, are continued into the future, and are rooted deeply in our past. Whatever we do, whomever we love, and the good and evil deeds we do today follow us into the future. Unsettled issues will present themselves again and again until they are ultimately resolved. Those people who have had a profound effect on us in this lifetime will find us again in the future. And although everything changes, love remains.Books in the TIME AFTER TIME series are BLUE LAKE, BELTERRA,
The BASLICATO, BENTLEY SQUARE, WAITING FOR RICHARD, and LORD OF BLAKELEY. They do not need to be read in order.
Lord of Blakeley is the story of Andrew of Blakeley, a simple farm boy who lives on a primitive future planet. He is chosen by the lovely Lady Aleese to be her mate and rises to become the most powerful man on the planet. But a jealous man with access to mobile transport devices wreaks havoc on the young couple’s happiness, separating them, her on an alien rock planet and he, aboard a slave ship, and then dumping them in present-day Chicago. One day Aleese vanishes into thin air, and Andrew is arrested for her murder and must stand trial. It is a story of devotion and jealousy, of loss and lunacy. And, in true Time After Time fashion, a story of love.

Interesting and just as enchanting as the others!

Lord of Blakeley is Carol ann Kauffman’s latest book in the Time After Time series, and it’s just as wonderful as all the rest! This series keeps getting better and better!No, these books are not “romance novels” There are no naked men, with nice abs, or page after page of sex scenes, these books weave tales of true romance, of love that is stronger than time. They embrace that love really means and don’t cheapen it!This story has all the wonderful elements of fantasy and sci-fi that Carol weaves into her classic love story. The character meets on their futuristic planet and falls in love despite their classes, and then they are horribly separated by a jealous man. They each go through their own struggles and fight for their love. It’s heartbreaking and wonderful, and draws you in and keeps you reading. You need to know what happens in this cycle of the Time After Time series because you won’t regret it!

Strangers meet on the train. She, a beautiful, wealthy businesswoman. He, a down on his luck office manager. They have nothing in common. And yet, they are drawn to each other with an undeniable hypnotic magnetism. This is the story of Rebecca Robbins, daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the country and Mark Ramsay, a man shrouded in dark mystery and hiding in the shadows from death squads amid international intrigue.

Robin Driscoll

What a fantastic story!

This is a great book with a great storyline. It was very interesting “hearing” each characters thoughts when they saw someone and how they interact with each other. It was amazing when they actually did meet and talk to each other. I really enjoyed the suspense, and once I got into the story, I couldn’t stop reading. The was a lot of detail to each of the scenes so you could almost picture yourself there.

Small-town red-head Cat Collier runs a private investigation service called Red Cat Investigation out of her office in the beautiful Palazzo Castellano with the help of her secretary, Nola White, an ex-client Cat took in because she had nowhere else to go, her boyfriend, Erick “Carter” Larsen, and Carter’s father, the wealthy, influential, and shady lawyer, Detrick Bittmor.

In this third installment of the Cat Collier Mystery series, after escaping from captivity in an abandoned train car, Cat stumbles upon a homeless man at the long-deserted train station, who helps her get home to Carter. Detrick discovers he knows this homeless man as the one-time legendary saxophone player who played in the downstairs bar when they were both young and the family embarks on rehabilitating the sax player and reopening the bar, “The Blues.”

A cute, cozy whodunit.

By SNOOPYREVIEWER

The presence of Carter, Cat, and Nola is having a profound effect on Detrick Bittmore in a positive way. The author has softened the once crotchety and rather crooked attorney.
Once again we are treated to a novella that is full of romance, humor, and a bit of action. I could not put this book down and enjoyed every word. This is another five-star read!

Doctor. Race Car Driver, Italy and Attempted Murder, Another Richard and Nicole Adventure

These Stories of Richard and Nicole are remarkable! Each one is more exciting than the other. It amazes me how they keep finding each other and at least one of them knows who they really are. Carol Ann Kauffman has such a way to bring these two together in such an unusual way.
Richard accidentality ended up in a kidnapped race car driver’s body. The doctor who walked into his room, her name was Brook, but Richard knew it was Nicole. His Nicole! Head trauma said the doctor, but I can fix him with some time. But Richard didn’t have time. There were people out to kill him. So his Father wanted to take him back to his home in Italy and have the doctor come with them. The head of her hospital didn’t want her to go.
More than once someone tried to take their lives. When Nicole returned to America, her longtime companion wanted to marry her and she said no. You see, by now she knew who Richard is. Without giving anything away, you go through many attempts on their lives and you will be surprised who is doing it. Trips back and forth from America to Italy, with adventure in both countries. Nicole does leave the States to live in Italy and open her own hospital. But that’s not where it ends.
With Nicole’s birthday coming up fast, I knew they had to make some kind of changes. The way it was done was a huge cheer and a tear. I really loved this book. Edge of your seat action. Twists and turns and suspense around every corner. Love Carol Ann Kauffman’s work!!

Dark Return is the sequel to Belterra, Time After Time, and takes place about ten years afterward. When Belterra was populated long ago by a select group of humans sent here by the ancients in the hope of saving the human race, the indigenous race of bat-like creatures called the Batrach were forced into the ocean and underground sea caves by a giant force field. The force field has now weakened. The Batrach have emerged from their watery prison and they want their planet back.

This one may have your heart beating wildly! Great series–I love them!!

My review of Belterra, the first book can be found here. I have been eagerly awaiting this sequel!! I am happy to say I loved it as much as I did the first! This can be read as a stand-alone–but I highly suggest you read both.
There are problems in Belterra–big ones! The Batrachs have decided to try and take their country back. A forcefield has held them captive in caves for many years. But now they have someone who can help them–who is it?
This one may have your heart beating wildly as the Belterran’s attempt first to fight the Batrachs–then try to make peace with them. There are important people that are kidnapped–can they be saved?
I really think you will enjoy this one–and it does segue into the Time after Time theme towards the end and sets you up for another one of the books! Great series–I love them!!

Mystery, Action, Surprises, Romance and Richard and Nicole, sort of, what more could you want?
By Valerie Roberson
This story may not have Richard and Nicole per se in it, but they are defiantly there. Neeka and Braedon is the spitting image of Richard and Nicole. This was an exciting romantic read with lots of surprises and action in it. The storyline was fantastic!
Belterra is a planet divided. Each section has a leader and their own village of followers. Each group has their own belief,s, and laws to follow. You stay within your clan. This has been going on for centuries.
But Neeka, the Lord Daughter of the Warrior Clan, loves Braedon, Lord of the Soldier Clan. Braedon comes and sweeps Neeka off her feet and takes her back to his land to live with him. Neeka, a medicine woman, wins over the Soldier Clan and is welcomed.
The Science Lord, Seth, hates all the clans and wants to rid the planet of them and run the planet as he sees fit. He kidnaps Neeka and makes her a slave to him and puts the royal guards in cells to starve. Braedon and the rest of his men rescue them and leave baby Ana with her Father Seth and Braendon’s Mother Betta to raise her.
Neeka and Braendon have more than their share of problems together as a couple. They are both pig-headed and have their owns ways. They seem to always find their way back to each other, just like Richard and Nicole.
Full of mystery, suspense, and action, you will have many, many surprises along the way. My mouth was left open many times throughout the book. Carol Ann Kauffman is an amazing writer!

A pleasant and satisfactory ending …

The story centered around a planet, Belterra, divided into four sectors and separated by job description and class as well as laws that forbid intermarriage and allowed for very little interaction between sectors. It was a story of two soul mates, Neeka and Braedon, trying to maintain a relationship even though they were from different sectors of the planet. I loved both of the characters and their idiosyncrasies and humanity — they often let their egos interfere with their true love, as we all do at times. The ending was satisfactory and resolved to my liking.
