GENRE: Historical Romance

 

About the Book

While horseback riding in the English countryside, sisters, Electra and Emily Crippen find themselves trapped in a tear in time. Thrown back to 1357 England and caught by a local noble, they are in a place that is home but as frightening and unfamiliar as an alien world would be. With no idea how the tear in time came about, the one thing they do know is: they must stay together and stay near to where the event took place in hopes of discovering the way back to their modern life. That certain need to stay together is the first certainty taken from them when one sister is forced to remain in England and one is sent miles away to Wales by royal order.

There is one other hope for help the sisters don’t know exists. It’s Electra’s lover, Roger Marchand. A time traveler himself, he never told her of his past. When he realizes what has happened to the sisters, he enlists the help of a scientist friend to help him open the suspected passageway through time. Any effort to save Electra and Emily will likely cost him his life. This was the time Roger came from, a time when his country, France, was at war with England. If he is discovered on English soil while searching for the sisters, he will either be killed or taken prisoner of war. Any risk is worth saving the life of the woman he loves.

Excerpt

While she ate, the button on Electra’s sleeve fell out of the frog loop. She didn’t hook the button again, reaching for her wine instead. The sleeve pulled back from her wrist to expose her watch, which she hadn’t thought to remove.

“What is that?” Simon asked and pointed to her Seiko.

“A watch.” What a bizarre question. There wasn’t a corner of the planet that people didn’t recognize a wristwatch.

A frown slowly formed and he stretched across Emily and took hold of Electra’s hand to tug it toward him for a better look. He turned her hand over and in a matter of seconds had the clasp undone.

He brought the candle in front of his trencher closer and held the watch under it. “What do the numbers mean?”

“It’s a clock, a miniature timepiece you wear on your wrist.”

From his expression, the explanation puzzled him. “Do they not have candle clocks in this Greenland you claim you’re from?”

How to explain the abundance of various clocks to a man who apparently has no context for the anything beyond a candle clock or similar ancient means of telling time?

“Are you saying you’ve never seen a clock?” Emily asked.

“One like this? No, I have not.”

Emily bent her head nearer Electra and whispered, “Are you thinking what I am?”

“Sadly, yes.”

Simon ran his finger over the watch face. “These small digits, what is their meaning?”

“It’s the date and year: 5.14.15.”

He shook his head. “What year is 15?”

“2015, of course.”

“You are mad. It’s the year of our Lord, 1357.”

 

Book Review

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of In Time for You by Chris Karlsen in exchange for an honest review.

There is one genre I enjoy reading more than a great romance and that’s a great time travel romance and In Time for You is one that goes on my top shelf as a truly great one!

I have not YET had the pleasure of reading the previous three books in the Knights in Time series, but I intend to add them to my virtual TBR mountain!

Ms. Karlsen has an incredible way of writing that flows so smoothly and allows me to forget I’m reading and puts me directly into the story. Her knowledge of the medieval times seems very extensive and lends authenticity to her story.

I’m very pleased to have been able to read and review In Time for You by Chris Karlsen and I highly recommend it.

I give five steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee to In Time for You.

About the Author

SONY DSC

I was born and raised in Chicago. My father was a history professor and my mother was, and is, a voracious reader. I grew up with a love of history and books.

My parents also love traveling, a passion they passed onto me. I wanted to see the places I read about, see the land and monuments from the time periods that fascinated me. I’ve had the good fortune to travel extensively throughout Europe, the Near East, and North Africa.

I am a retired police detective. I spent twenty-five years in law enforcement with two different agencies. My desire to write came in my early teens. After I retired, I decided to pursue that dream. I write three different series. My paranormal romance series is called, Knights in Time. My romantic thriller series is Dangerous Waters. The newest is The Bloodstone Series. Each series has a different setting and some cross time periods, which I find fun to write.

I currently live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and five wild and crazy rescue dogs.

    Time travel wouldn’t as much fun if you couldn’t share the experience with a sister, Sounds like a really fun read!

    1. By chris karlsen on

      HI Sue,

      At least it might not be so scary if you have a sister to share the time travel with. I say that knowing full well my sisters were both pretty darned worried and scared together:)

    Where is your favorite go to spot to read (or write)?

    1. By chris karlsen on

      Hi Becky,
      I write in the same spot all the time, at my desk. I still use a desk top computer. I am comfortable with it. I have an iPad and know one day I’ll have to rely on it but for now I am staying with my desk top. I will scribble stuff on a legal pad while I sit and watch television but that’s about it. I do read while I sit in my recliner in the den. I either have the television on in the background or music. I do best when there’s some kind of noise in the back ground. Weird I know.
      Chris

      Hi Rita,
      Thank you for visiting with me again. Glad you like this excerpt. I’m working on a book board for this story that I will post on Pinterest. It will have my “dream” cast.
