if you like this, you will love "Tempting Fate." I can't wait till the next!

Great story that blends action, fantasy, romance and very interesting history. The sequel, Tempting Fate, is just as good! Can't wait for book 3.

Fantastic and fun world. An immersive read and twisty plot line. The sequel gets even better.

Love Marking Time and the Immortal Descendant families it builds in this first book. I just finished Tempting Fate book two and I read on the authors fb page that she's working in book three now!
