Scotland - 1603 -- Poor Griffin Campbell, heir to clan Campbell, handsome, strong, honorable, and intelligent. Everything a future laird should be, other than the fact that try as he might, he just can't seem to do the deed with a lass! It's not necessarily that he doesn't have the urge, it's just that the minute he gets close or kisses them his stomach rolls and he has to vomit. So far, he's hidden this particular quirk from everyone but now finds himself betrothed to a woman he doesn't even feel the urge to kiss, let alone do the deed. Taking himself off to gather his thoughts, he happens upon a cave that had a pool and green crystals. Stones that looked just like the crystal that his friends Jix and Jamie MacGregor used that enabled them to travel back and forth in time. As he touched the stones, hed wake was staring at Chelsea, a comely lass in a very short dress - and, more importantly, it was the year 2003.
Chelsea was following in her scientific parents shoes - both of whom were brilliant scientist's. Chelsea was just about finishing up a doctorate degree back in Texas, yet she never felt she could measure up next to her two best friends - the vivacious lovely Jix MacGregor and, gorgeous and accomplished Samantha. They had been friends forever and when invited to come and celebrate Jix and Jamie's anniversary, Chelsea couldn't refuse.
Chelsea had never before felt any kind of attraction for a man; that is until she got a good look at Griffin Campbell, a blond Adonis if ever she saw one. He seemed to like her too, at least he sure kissed like he did, but then he would turn around and `hurl' immediately after. Now for someone whose self-esteem was low to begin with Chelsea didn't think the future looked too bright. When they all ended up flying to Texas in search of specialist for Jix. Griffin discovered a long lost cousin had somehow time-traveled back to 1882 Texas and he was determined to find a way to save him never expecting that Chelse would be coming along on the adventure.
*** In the second installment to Mallory's time travel series, she brings Griffin Campbell back from Scotland 1603 to Scotland 2003, and then to Texas 1882. Poor Griffin as if the adjustment to 2003 wasn't enough of a culture shock, he'd been put into the belly of a giant metal bird - an aero-plane - and flown to modern day Texas, with more adventures thrown in! One can positively say that you won't get bored with this rollicking adventure of a time travel story especially as Griffin finds the woman he'd truly like to settle down with - except for that one little problem. Filled with more than enough secondary characters, and a plethora of amusing situations this writer puts the lead duo through, the reader is sure to find this an enormously entertaining read. -- Marilyn for, [...]---
