GENRE: Paranormal Romance
Homicide Investigator, Sergeant Amelia Hall, has been playing a cat and mouse game with serial killer Tom Willis. Willis murdered her sister, many other women, and tried to kill her. As they finally face each other for a final stand they are transported back in time to 1836 during the battle of the Alamo. Jeremy Saunders, Texas Ranger, finds himself in the heat of battle at the Alamo as he meets Amelia Hall who pretends to be a nun. They make their way eastward to warn of Santa Anna’s defeat of the Alamo, while hunted by Willis. In a series of events, both harrowing and comical, Amelia and Jeremy find themselves thrust into a search for Willis and into each others arms. Even as they fight their attraction, they begin to understand what is truly important in life. The question is: Are they running out of time? Is it all a mad dream or a reality they never knew they wanted? Only time will tell…
Jeremy’s gaze roamed from her face down her body and back up again. There was nothing innocent about that lewd action, which left her feeling naked and vulnerable. What mistake had she made for him to be so sure? Confusion marred her large green eyes as her brows furrowed.
Leaning down into her face he gave a smirk of confidence, knowledge, and purpose. His teeth flashed a brilliant white against his tanned face and black mustache. She stared at his teeth, seeing the infinitesimal overlap of his two front incisors that did not detract from his great smile. His breath moved across her right cheek as he moved his lips next to her ear.
“You are an imposter, dear Sister,” he whispered.
His nearness affected her. Her heart pounded uncontrollably in her chest and her senses reeled from the intoxicating scent of leather and man. With his lips almost pressing against her ear she couldn’t move. If she tilted her head their lips would meet. If she tried to lean back she would fall out of her chair.
“I don’t understand what you mean.”
“Oh,” his breath brushed against her neck, causing chills to race down her spine. “You heard me correctly. You, lady, are an impostor.”
