Timeless Desire by Gwyn Cready

When looking for a new book to read, I check outTimeless Desire Cover releases by my favorite authors first. But no matter if I know the author or not, I’m always drawn to amazing book covers.

Such is the case of the recent release by author Gwyn Cready, whose work I consistently enjoy. Cready’s latest release, TIMELESS DESIRE: AN OUTLANDER LOVE STORY, is a wonderful read with a fabulous cover that you can’t resist picking up.

Cready is a RITA Award winning author who’s been called “the master of time travel romance” and whose writing has been called “delightfully original” and “sexy” by trade publications.  

Here’s a brief description of TIMELESS DESIRE:
Two years after losing her husband, overworked librarian Panna Kennedy battles to distract herself from crushing grief, while she wrestles with yet another library budget cut. During a routine search within the library’s lower levels, Panna opens an obscure, pad-locked door and finds herself transported to the magnificent, book-filled quarters of a handsome, eighteenth-century Englishman. She soon recognizes the man as Colonel John Bridgewater, the historic English war hero whose larger-than-life statue loomed over her desk

However, the life of the dashing Bridgewater is not at all what she imagined. He’s under house arrest for betraying England, and now looks upon her—a beautiful and unexpected half-dressed visitor—as a possible spy. Despite bad first impressions (on both sides), Bridgewater nonetheless warms to Panna, and pulls her into his escape—while both their hearts pull the other headlong into their soul-stirring secrets.

Very quickly Panna is thrown into a whirlwind of high-stakes intrigue that sweeps her from Hadrian's Wall to a forbidding stone castle in Scotland. And somewhere in the outland, Panna must decide if her loyalties lie with her dead husband, or with the man whose life now depends on her. 
TIMELESS DESIRE is more than just a paranormal romance. Cready incorporates humor and heart-touching moments, along with sprinkles of mystery and intrigue. It’s a fast-pace adventure filled with thrills that will keep you spellbound until the end. If you’re new to the paranormal romance genre, you’ll find Cready is a master at making it seem real.

Cready won a RITA Award for Best Paranormal Romance 2009 and is the author of several paranormal romances including Tumbling Through Time, Seducing Mr. Darcy, Flirting with Forever, Aching for Always and A Novel Seduction. Timeless Desire is her latest foray into the time travel genre and men in kilts. She lives in Pittsburgh with her family.
