Time Travel + Steamy Sex = “Back to the Future” meets “Gone With The Wind”
The plantation country of Scarlett O’Hara was long ago, but not far away as Colette Boudreaux discovers when she travels back in time to the 1840’s in New Orleans. Feeling completely lost and out of place, she is sheltered by sugar cane plantation owner, Wyatt Alexander.
Time knows no boundaries and they soon discover love and passion. However, fireworks erupt when the cultural mores of a male dominated society marry those of a modern liberated female. Their bodies know they belong together, but their minds can’t, or won’t bridge the gulf dividing them.
Will Colette find her niche in the past, where her heart is grounded, or will she return to the future, lonely and alone? Only time will tell.
“Legacy of Time”
Time was her enemy. Colette swore when she picked up the illuminated clock and
looked at the time. Three A.M. Way too early to get out of bed. Way too late to
get any semblance of restful sleep. She slammed the offensive clock down on the
bedside table. This was the seventh consecutive night she’d tossed on her bed.
What had awakened her?
Frustrated, she punched her pillow. Had the dream returned? She closed her eyes. Vague images of a soft silken gown, a man’s outstretched arms, and a beautiful antebellum
mansion flitted across her mind only to be abruptly replaced with maniacal sounds of laughter and horrific flashes of lightning.
Her pulse raced and her heart pounded in the aftermath of the remembered dream. Her fear increased and she wondered how such pleasant thoughts could transform into a
dreadful nightmare. Unshed tears burned her eyes.
Overwhelmed by a sense of loss, she succumbed to the dream evoked emotions and cried. Every time she thought she’d run out of tears, some relentless inner well erupted and she
found herself crying huge alligator tears all over again. Eventually, the well dried up, but a feeling of desperation lingered.
Time dragged and sleep remained elusive. The mantle clock chimed every quarter hour. The soothing melody normally calmed her. Now it grated harshly on her sleep-deprived nerves and body.
With each passing minute, her resolve grew. Something had to give—either her mind or her body—she didn’t really care which. But if that something didn’t happen and happen soon, she would go see a doctor, ask for a prescription, and hopefully get some sleep.
She clutched her pillow, closed her eyes, and prayed for a few hours of rest. She would see what tomorrow would bring.
