Historical Time Travel Romance Series

ForeverForever
The Trelawneys of Williamsburg, Book 3
By Anne Meredith
Publisher: Haunted Oak Publishing
Release Date: July 3, 2018
ISBN: 978-1732267510
ASIN: B07DXKTPVQ
Genre: Time-Travel Historical Romance (Colonial Virginia)

Note from the Author: This novel is the third in The Trelawneys of Williamsburg series. There is a complex revenge murder mystery that crosses three centuries and all of the books, and it is NOT recommended this book be read independently. Consider first reading Tender and Immortal before beginning Forever. Each book contains plot developments that put in motion events of the next book, as well as revealing events that occurred in previous books. Reading the books out of order may not be the optimum reading experience.

“TENDER is a title like no others I have read, mixing historic fiction, romance, conflict and suspense into a story redolent with time, place and emotion.” – Gaele, I Am Indeed Book Reviews (www. iam-indeed.com)

“Powerful emotions, vivid historical detail, a broad array of depictions of colonial life, and the surprises of time travel make IMMORTAL a delight to read. … For historical romance readers who enjoy a well-designed series, THE TRELAWNEYS OF WILLIAMSBURG is a must-read.” – Melinda Hills, Readers Favorite Book Reviews (www.readersfavorite.com)

Set on the backdrop of the American Revolution in 1781, FOREVER, BOOK 3 in THE TRELAWNEYS OF WILLIAMSBURG Series, consummates the story of Rachel, Merrilea, and Juliana Miller.

In her timeless quest to learn why her parents deserted her, Juliana has discovered one ironclad rule: Leave no footprints.
The independent young woman wants more than anything to leave an impact—through a family of her own. The memory of the passionate Rashall Adams abides with her through all the years since he left.

Now Rashall is back—tired of injustice and strife, wanting only to make a home with Juliana. But when Major General Lafayette recruits him to uncover the intelligence of the British army by posing as a runaway slave, how will he respond?

Will Juliana and Rashall prevail over the corruption and war that conspire to divide them?

As the Miller sisters endeavor to make peace with their past, they find the future fraught with challenges they never expected.

TenderTender
The Trelawneys of Williamsburg, Book 1
By Anne Meredith
Publisher: Haunted Oak Publishing
Published: March 2016
ISBN: 978-1530853137
ASIN: B01CG72IX6
Genre: Time-Travel Historical Romance (Colonial Virginia)

This series is intended to be read in order.

Rachel Sheppard is running from a forgotten past. She arrives in Colonial Williamsburg with her best friend, Camisha, and soon learns that the man who raised her has been keeping a dark secret from her for twenty years and blackmailing Camisha. Now, he’ll do everything to stop Rachel from revealing his secret.

The young women seek shelter at Rosalie, an historic estate that was once a tobacco plantation. While a thunderstorm crashes outside that evening, Rachel hears the historical legends of Rosalie, including the story of Grey Trelawney and his young daughter Emily, who died at a fire at Rosalie in the 18th century.

As she dresses for bed, she looks out the window and sees a little girl begging for her help. Could she actually be the ghost of Emily Trelawney? She races after the child into the ruins of the original plantation house, and as lightning strikes, she collapses. She awakens in the arms of Grey Trelawney, the sexy plantation owner who has dark secrets of his own. She learns that secret when she discovers that Camisha, too, has traveled back to the year 1746 – with disastrous results.

Will Rachel ever remember what happened in her childhood that wiped away her most treasured memories? How can a man as contemptible as Grey not only awaken in her the most tender and erotic passions, but also hold the key to restoring those memories? Can she prevent the fire that killed both the man and the child she now loves? How can she keep Camisha safe in a time and place so dangerous for her?

This latest steamy romance from Anne Meredith is a sweeping drama of treachery, friendship, and redemption, set on a backdrop of forbidden love and overflowing with the history of the era. It will take you away, make you think, and leave you hungry for Immortal: Book Two in The Trelawneys of Colonial Williamsburg Time Travel Series by Anne Meredith.

The Trelawneys of Williamsburg, Book 2
By Anne Meredith
Publisher: Haunted Oak Publishing
Release Date: November 2016
ISBN: 978-0692791035
ASIN: B01M0OCGZB
Genre: Time-Travel Historical Romance (Colonial Virginia)

This is book two in this Historical Time Travel Romance Series.

This series is intended to be read in order.

Rachel remembered nothing of the past. Her sister Merrilea remembers too much.

IMMORTAL continues the saga of the Trelawneys of Williamsburg, which began in 1746 with the love story of Rachel and slave-trader Grey Trelawney. IMMORTAL is the story of Merrilea Miller, the younger sister of Rachel, who has been raised in hiding by her grandmother, Hannah Hastings (“Nan”), an English woman with a stormy, sorrowful past and many secrets.

(Please note this is the second in a series and is more enjoyable when read following TENDER, Book 1.)

When Merrilea was still a toddler, Nan changed her name to Marley Hastings for her own protection – and for Nan’s.

Join Marley, an archaeologist and Williamsburg historian as she discovers the “Lost Sea Captain” in the dig of an 18th-century ship found in a construction site in Norfolk. When she goes on a Caribbean vacation with Nan, Marley herself nearly drowns in a tropical storm until she’s rescued by a handsome sea captain.

Marley soon learns she’s traveled in time and that Hawk and his best friend, Raven, support the burgeoning American revolution on their ship, the Adventurer, as privateers in the year 1775. The crew wages valiant fights against Royal Navy warships on the high seas, British Army gunners at the Battle of Great Bridge, and the villainous Lucian Caine, who has returned from the past to settle an old score he had with the Trelawneys.

As shy Marley falls in love with the charming Hawk, he brings her out of her shell and teaches her to have courage. Hawk himself is pleasantly surprised at the passion revealed in the fiery young woman. Marley soon comes to believe that Hawk is indeed the Lost Sea Captain – but how can she intervene in his fate without upsetting history?

Moon, the ex K-pop band manager who now works at the English school struggling to maintain his sobriety in hopes of getting his family back;

Historical Fiction – Back Side of a Blue Moon

Back Side of a Blue MoonBack Side of a Blue Moon
The Boom Town Saga, Book 1
By Caleb Pirtle III
Publisher: Venture Galleries
ISBN: 978-1937569815
ASIN: B071XN6FY6
Genre: Historical Fiction
Formats Available For Review: mobi

Times are hard along the Sabine River, and the little East Texas town of Ashland is crumbling under the weight of the Great Depression. Families are broke and hungry. For many, their last meal may well have been their last meal. Families are giving up and leaving town. Everyone knows the fate that awaits the scattered farms. No one can save Ashland. It is as isolated as the back side of a blue moon.

Into town comes Doc Bannister wearing a straw boater and a white suit. He is the miracle man. He has a homemade doodlebug machine that, he says, can find oil and make them all rich. Oil, he swears, lies beneath the blistered farmstead of Eudora Durant. She thinks Doc is a flim flam man. The Sheriff believes he is a con artist. Both are convinced that Doc has come to town to swindle every dime he can get before hitting the road again. Ashland knows Doc may be crooked, but he has brought hope to a town that had no hope.

Eudora has everything Doc wants. She is a beautiful woman who owns cheap land. In Ashland, she is known as the scarlet woman. Whispers say she murdered her husband. No one has seen him since the night they heard a shotgun blast on her farm. The town wants oil. Doc wants Eudora. But Eudora is too independent and stubborn to fall for the charms of a silver-tongued charlatan.

She holds the fate of Ashland in her hands. Will she let Doc drill? Is there really oil lying deep beneath her sunbaked land? Can Doc find it? Or is he more interested in finding love than oil? What happens when a man with a checkered past comes face to face with a woman whose past is as mysterious as his?
