He hoped for a wife. He found a companion through time and beyond.
It is 1715 and for Duncan Melville something fundamental is missing from his life. Despite a flourishing legal practice and several close friends, he is lonely, even more so after the recent death of his father. He needs a wife—a companion through life, someone to hold and be held by. What he wasn’t expecting was to be torn away from everything he knew and find said woman in 2016…
Erin Barnes has a lot of stuff going on in her life. She doesn’t need the additional twist of a stranger in weird outdated clothes, but when he risks his life to save hers, she feels obligated to return the favour. Besides, whoever Duncan may be, she can’t exactly deny the immediate attraction.
The complications in Erin’s life explode. Events are set in motion and to Erin’s horror she and Duncan are thrown back to 1715. Not only does Erin have to cope with a different and intimidating world, soon enough she and Duncan are embroiled in a dangerous quest for Duncan’s uncle, a quest that may very well cost them their lives as they travel through a Scotland poised on the brink of rebellion.
Will they find Duncan’s uncle in time? And is the door to the future permanently closed, or will Erin find a way back?
Author Anna Belfrage has knocked it out of the park again!
I was instantly sucked into The Whirlpools of Time from the start, especially excited to see Duncan again, who was in her Graham saga series, which is fabulous as well.
Duncan is returning from a visit to his family following the death of this father. He's a bit estranged from his family, especially his mother, through no fault of his own. Despite having a good career he feels restless and would like a wife and a family like his brothers.
It's a stormy night and when he reaches a crossroad on the path, lightning crashes down and when he awakens he finds himself in the year 2016. When Erin comes upon him she has no idea why he is dressed so strangely and in the middle of the road. She's on the run after trying to expose a local family that stole a family heirloom. Duncan saves her from them and she decides to help him in return.
There's mystery, adventure, danger, and of course, romance....this is Anna Belfrage we're talking about here! I just adore the way Anna writes, especially the romance/love/sexiness aspects. The connection between Erin and Duncan was unmistakable!
I cannot wait for the next book in the series! You should definitely pick this one up and I would also recommend checking out the Graham saga!
About the Author
Had Anna been allowed to choose, she’d have become a time-traveller. As this was impossible, she became a financial professional with two absorbing interests: history and writing. Anna has authored the acclaimed time travelling series The Graham Saga, set in 17th century Scotland and Maryland, as well as the equally acclaimed medieval series The King’s Greatest Enemy which is set in 14th century England.
More recently, Anna has published The Wanderer, a fast-paced contemporary romantic suspense trilogy with paranormal and time-slip ingredients. While she loved stepping out of her comfort zone (and will likely do so again ) she is delighted to be back in medieval times in her September 2020 release, His Castilian Hawk. Set against the complications of Edward I’s invasion of Wales, His Castilian Hawk is a story of loyalty, integrity—and love.
Find out more about Anna on her website or on her Amazon page. You can also follow her on Facebook or Twitter.
