MikiHope This Time Travel will keep you guessing and enthralled!! Although not a part of the Time After Time series (at least I don’t it is)–it should be in my opinion. If you follow my blog book reviews you know I have read and reviewed many of Carol Ann Kauffman’s books before. I do love Time Travel novels (second only to Historical Romance–then comes Cozy’s). This one will definitely keep your attention. Samantha does not like mirrors anymore–and you won’t blame her. She has been dragged into too many different places and times. All she really wants is to find the man she really loves! Will she be able to distinguish between all the clones? You will have to read the book to find out!
Sarah is a beautiful redhead who works for a special agency that fixes broken timelines and rescues historically significant people who are in trouble. She has a special set of skills that allow her to ‘tap’ someone out of a dangerous situation. Her present assignment is to find and rescue a prince whose son eliminates hunger and disease on his island nation.
“Save the Prince; save the King; and save the Reds. In doing so, Red Sarah may just save herself, who knows, but what might be the cost? Moving from modern-day wisecrackery to a time of romance long ago, Carol Ann Kauffman’s tale is filled with majesty and bravery. This time travel story is a gift for all.” – Amazon Review
“Sarah has one job, and that is to rescue Crown Prince Lucas of Mist from captivity in a dungeon. Yet everything is not as it seems and will Sarah be able to stop an upcoming war? This was an interesting book about time travel and trying not to disrupt the time continuum. I liked Sarah, and it was interesting where she and Lucas ended up.” -Amazon Review
This book is not that long and will keep you enthralled and reading until the end!
This is a fairy tale type book-except the woman saves the prince! And the woman, Sarah is a time traveler from the future–the prince is the much-hated third son of his father the King. He is thrown into an enemy’s dungeon and Sarah has to rescue him! This book is not that long and will keep you enthralled and reading until the end!
But don’t stop there–Please read the Dedication at the end–it is beautiful and obviously written from the heart!
Young American Michelle Rosemont visits a quaint, little village in England after graduation and decides to stay. She takes a job as a photographer for a historical magazine and is drawn to Kenneth MacKalvey, an older British author whom she has admired from afar. Their mutual attraction is instantaneous. But they are opposites in every way. Twists and turns at every corner heighten the suspense in this village mystery. Will his dark and shady past cause Michelle to run away? Will issues of abandonment at birth stop her from trusting him? Can they find happiness together despite their major differences? Or will old family scars and secrets keep them apart forever?
Well written and gripping! Another page-turner from Kauffman!
Another great book in the time after time series. Kauffman has created yet another pair of lovers, and they need to deal with all drama on their path to love. Michelle Rosemont has moved to England and fallen in love. Kenneth MacKalvey has a secret past and is full of mystery and that’s what leads Michelle down the wormhole. Just like the other books in Kauffman’s time after time series, this has an outstanding plot, very well-written characters, and intrigue and drama. It interests the reader, and pulls them into the world, as you root for the characters to end up happily ever after. Each book keeps getting better and better. This was a great read with romance, humor, drama, and some action. It’s a great book to add to your reading list, and I promise you won’t be disappointed! I thoroughly loved it, and look forward to more books by Kauffman!

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 fall in love despite their classes, and then 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!

How many lifetimes have you sought out your true love and found them again and again?
Did you ever have a dream about a person for years that you never met, but you know you know them very well? And when you do finally meet, the both of you have memories of things you did together, years ago, centuries ago, another lifetime ago? And the both of you know the other name from another time? Well, this happened to Skye and Derrick in their 60’s. When they both called each other by their other name, I got goosebumps! Some people are meant to be with each other forever and that means from one lifetime to another. Somehow, one way or the other, they find each other. I like to think my husband and I are like that. I believe that you live on in your sprite form until God has another plan for you. So why not being with the only one for you, your Soul Mate, from lifetime to lifetime, and so on? This is a very touching story and makes you think about who you are with and people that you have met and felt a connection to right away. I love how Carol put this story together. It’s a love story of a different kind. Sweet, mystery, funny and heartwarming all rolled into one.
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.”
This is a unique read, being a blend of science fiction with romance and a touch of mystery thrown in for good measure. The mermaid in this story is an alien and the last of her species is kept in a special tank at Touchstone, a secure institute for the study of aliens. This is not the fabulous creature sitting on a rock, combing her hair, and looking in her mirror while she sings to hapless mariners, she is much darker and way more dangerous. Laura is the scientist in charge, and everyone wants to work with her, including Scott, who though overqualified, begs her for a place. What happens next is unexpected and thrilling. Who will survive and who will not? A great read.
