Project Echo 31: There’s A Time To Love by E.D. Johnson

In this romantic sci-fi adventure, Luke must make a choice: Stop the marriage that ruins his life in two decades or give in to temptation and take the good times in between. Can he learn to live with the means justifying the end?Luke Summers is emotionally broken. His twenty-year marriage has just come to a bitter, heartbreaking end and he is struggling to find the will to put the pieces of his life back together with such a large section missing. Every problem he has known for years seems to be rooted in those damned vows of matrimony. If only there was a way to undo what was done so long ago…His friend is a physicist with a contract to change the world. He confides in Luke something as absurd as it is wondrous. “We have almost perfected the art of time-travel.”Seeing his chance to rid himself of the slow cancer that was his ruined marriage, Luke convinces his friend to show him the machine. His friend explains that time-travel only applies to the consciousness, and that it is far from an exact science. Midway through the explanation of the rules, Luke seizes his opening and starts the machine while his friend’s back is turned. He concentrates on the day he met Stephanie, his ex-wife. He sees a light at the end of this dark tunnel of pain and then…He blinks, disoriented. He sees the church. His tuxedo. His best man. He travelled back to their wedding day! Dazed but on a mission to stop the biggest mistake he ever made, he storms through the church looking for Stephanie. He is looking for his ex-wife, but he isn’t expecting to find his bride-to-be. There stands, not the woman who destroyed his life, but the woman he fell in love with so many years ago. He tries to stand firm and to complete his quest, but seeing Steph as she was then brings his buried feelings of love bubbling to the surface again. As he struggles to cope with his conflicted emotions, two shadowy figures appear on the horizon. They hold the contract for time-travel and Luke is breaking all the rules. You can never return to the past to alter it, only to relive it. He has told Stephanie, a resident of the past, about the existence of time-travel and now they both are in danger. As they struggle to make it to his trigger point so he can return to his time, the danger and the excitement drive them closer and closer together.Can the couple beat the odds and evade the Time Police? Will their newly rediscovered love prevail?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love science fiction and I love erotic literature but I’ve been hard-pressed to find really good, cerebral and thoughtful combinations of the two that isn’t just tentacle porn or mindless jackhammer sex. I wanted to craft something philosophical and sexy and adventurous. I love reading about history, too, so I thought I’d make the setting for my series all of time itself, focusing on the adventures of a virginal, naive time traveler using her sexual prowess to fix diversions in the past.

Lost in Time I by Abbie Zanders

LiT_Part_I_Cover-w400Lost in Time I is a love story about travelling great lengths to find your true soul mate.

Scottish maiden Isobeille Aislinn McKenna wasn’t like the other lasses. She was curious about the world around her and wanted more than a life of servitude and obeisance. When her abusive father arranges her marriage in order to pay his debts, she prays for divine intervention.

Her prayers are answered, and Isobeille suddenly finds herself six hundred years in the future – directly in the path of a bus in the heart of one of the busiest cities on the East Coast.

Reluctant do-gooder Nick Peterson was there to tackle her out of its path, but he’s not happy about it. He’s already on the outs with his girlfriend and running very late for a date that he’s hoping will get things back on track.

Both his conscience and his protective instincts kick in in a big way when he realizes Isobeille has nowhere else to go. Nick fights the sudden and instant attraction he has for the sweet and docile Isobeille, but does he really stand a chance against Fate?

She promises her readers two things: no cliffhangers, and always happily ever afters.

I’m a huge fan of Highlander romances, especially the ones that include a bit of time travel, but they almost always focus on the main male characters. I got to thinking, hey, what would happen if a Scottish maiden made the trip instead? Would she come willingly? How would she perceive the world around her?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As a teenager I read the love story of the medieval scholars Abelard and Heloise. It was such a tragic tale, one I’ve never been able to get out of my head. They had a son and I was toying with the idea of what his psychology would be, bearing in mind what happened to his parents. Then I saw a friend of mine, a bit of a ‘hooray Henry’ who wanted to be a F1 driver, race. In an instant my friend became a different man; totally focused, totally strategic in his approach. And that was just the spark I needed to give birth to my Knight Templar, a medieval workaholic trying to avoid emotions and avoid his parents’ mistakes and in doing so runs headlong into his own series of unfortunate decisions. Of course, I threw in a bit of magic, alchemy and a crusade for good measure not to mention a F1 race or two.
