Sands of Time: After being diagnosed with inoperable cancer, Nicole can feel what time she has slipping away. Like many, she has told herself she would do the things she has always dreamed of "later." Pressed for time, later has come: she's going to see the world. She planned to start with Scotland, and go on from there, but once she arrives she meets a man she can't resist. Ciaran offers her a hope for the future she had given up on having, but it comes with a price. For Ciaran is not what he appears to be, and his race can't risk anyone finding out they exist.
Turning Back Time: Devastated at the news of her friend's supposed death, Julie rushes to Scotland to find some answers. What she finds instead is Roarke. Unwilling to let go of her search, Julie winds up figuring out what happened to Nicole. Along the way, she finds her own chance at happiness, if she can accept that Roarke isn't human.
Clare C’s Review
Time After Time includes two short love stories. Both were entertaining and original. One focused on a woman dying of cancer and a shape-shifting cat who can save her by making her one of his kinds. The other focused on her best friend, grieving over the first woman’s ‘death’, and a selchie.
Both stories had enough content to be full novels, and I wish the author had spent more time developing the characters and their relationships. However, they were both still very good stories featuring women finding unexpected love and happiness. The setting, a Celtic castle, was as magical and enchanting as the plot. Readers looking for a short getaway full of mist and fantasy will like both of Ms. Houston’s stories.
