SYNOPSIS:
Leanna turns her back on the fresh grave of her husband, Leon, and heads to her car, to leave Colorado in search of a new life. She has bittersweet memories of her married life, particularly those years she and Leon spent developing and working a small Colorado ranch. Once they were forced from their spread, by wealthy, powerful speculators, Leon lost all sense of promise, and became increasingly depressed as the months passed. Leanna is unable to bring Leon back to a belief in himself and the future.

Leanna carries the secret of her husband’s death while working steadily for a year in a small law firm in Wyoming. Was Leon’s death an accident? He’d driven the mountain road many times before and was always a cautious driver. Did she make a mistake in not letting him see her pain in losing their ranch. Was her desire to shield him from even more hurt wrong? And the biggest question of all, did he think he’d lost her, too? These thoughts torture Leanna. She is content with her new life, but it is also clear she has a cold reserve and that she keeps her distance from loving anyone again.

Then Matt Forrister enters the law office where Leanna is a para-legal. He is everything Leanna has come to fear and loathe. He is wealthy and good-looking and owns one of the biggest ranches in the area. He is also her bosses friend. She immediately despises this man, yet, at the same time, she feels an overwhelming attraction to him. She can’t help but put him in the same category as the wealthy and powerful speculators that forced her from her ranch. Matt is puzzled, angered, and mesmerized by Leanna. He is drawn to her stunning beauty. He is attracted to her spirit. Thoughts of Leanna run like electricity through him.

Matt and Leanna’s boss conspire to bring Leanna to Matt’s ranch, the Lazy Seven, nestled in the Big Horn Mountains outside of Sheridan, Wyoming. In spite of her conflicting emotions, Leanna is swept into the beauty of everything. She beholds the vision of the dream she and Leon shared so hopelessly. The beautiful horses, the ranch, the man. Still, Leanna holds back frightened by the prospect of falling for a man who seems to mirror everything she had come to hate. The volatile mix of restraint and passion guides both Matt and Leanna through the chapters that follow. Leanna comes to appreciate and trust the hardworking rancher, the passionate and caring man, who has never known the true love of a woman. Matt loves Leanna deeply.

Leanna returns to Colorado and once again faces the heartbreak and rush of memories. She faces Leon’s grave and seeks his understanding and forgiveness. She returns to “Sheridan and Matt, exhausted from grief and rekindled memory, but beginning to heal. Leanna faces Matt, opens her heart and tells him her reason for her deep sense of shame and fear.They face one another, open and unafraid, clear about their desires and love.

SYNOPSIS:

Katie McCullough doesn’t know it, but Max Sawyer, the over confident, irritatingly handsome hotel developer who outbid her for the lighthouse property, is none other, than her mystery lighthouse sailor. The one man who captured her heart five years earlier, the one man who has since been the plumb line for every other unsuspecting male who has crossed her path. Unfortunately for Max, he doesn’t measure up either.

Still reeling from losing the property she’d planned to call home, sparks fly when Katie assumes Max is turning her beloved lighthouse compound into one of his ‘Serenity Spa Resorts.” Outraged, Katie sets out on a mission to dismantle the property…and his plans.

Except Max’s plans have absolutely nothing to do with hotels and everything to do with winning Katie’s heart.

REVIEWS:

“Keeper Of My Heart DID NOT DISAPPOINT. Katie and Max have a tangible chemistry throughout the story that was both entertaining, humorous, and competitive. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good romance that isn’t typical or inappropriate.” Kara Grant

“Ms. Flynn’s gift with the pen in describing the charm of the beautiful sea-side lighthouse and it’s properties makes one yearn for the salt-scented peace and warm community it invokes.” TJ

“You will love this book!! It was that good. The storyline was refreshing…If you are looking for a hot passionate romance book, you won’t find it in this but what you will find is a sweet romantic story of two people finding their way to one another… You will be delighted in the bantering between Katie and Max, you may even find yourself chuckling out loud a time or two.” Kat – Forever Book Lover

“Max was adorable to me. He was so thoughtful, even though Katie didn’t see him that way. I LOVE that he came back for her!” Autumn Review’s

“I thoroughly enjoyed this book because it was light and fun. Darcy Flynn did an amazing job describing her scenes…I couldn’t put it down. I loved the romance between Max and Katie with kisses and simple affection, rather than the reliance upon more carnal scenes found in most romance novels.” Heather Boustead

“Excellent story. I just couldn’t put it down.” Emma Leigh

“Loved.It.To.PIECES!!” Jen H.

AUTHOR BIO:

Darcy was born into the rich culture of New Orleans, La. As a city filled with colorful historical intrigue and broad creative energy, her natural bent to the arts coupled with her love for one of the most romantic cities in the world has been the inspiration and anchor of her artistic multi-dimension endeavors. Darcy was always compelled by the need to express herself and like her mother’s famous gumbo, her previous expressions included a little bit of everything – art, music, acting and dance.

Although, published in music, art and the Christian non-fiction market under another identity, it was the empty nest that turned Darcy to writing romantic fiction. A lover of lighthouses, Darcy’s first novel, Keeper Of My Heart, unfolds in a small Maryland fishing village on the Chesapeake Bay.

Darcy, a former Mrs. Tennessee, continues to be surrounded by all things creative in Music City and when not in writing in her London flat, lives on a beautiful horse farm in historic- Franklin, Tennessee with her husband, son, two English Setters and a calico cat. Darcy enjoys stargazing, raising rare breed chickens and gardening.

When the town of Pompeii was buried in ashes in 79 AD, not everyone was taken by surprise. At least one person knew what was coming, Valerie Brooks, an involuntary time traveler from Victorian England, but her foreknowledge doesn’t help her. Declared a witch by the townspeople of Pompeii and sold into slavery, she has to find a way to make her master, Christos, believe her so they can escape the town before Vesuvius erupts. But given the mistrust between them fired by the jealousy of her master’s scheming lover, Valerie finds her influence dwindling as the deadly time approaches. Racing against the impending destruction of Pompeii, she must not only decipher the mystery of her time-shift, but the mystery of love as well.

REVIEWS:

“What fabulous reading! Ms. Barnett has given us an enchanting story with an ageless plot. She has also combined genres with exquisite results. Ms. Barnett has an imagination I envy. I thoroughly enjoy her characters and creative use of historical settings. I, personally, want that scrumptious man she introduced. In lieu of that unfortunate impossibility, I will settle for a copy of this one-in-a-million book that I can read again and again. Get one for yourself. You, too, will look like the cat that swallowed the canary when you have read it.” 5 Cups – Coffee Time Romance

“Through the Mists of Time by author Teri Barnett is an insightful and sensual indulgence for readers of historical romance. It is a story of a transcendent love and the development of character. The reader is pulled into the story through the detailed sketching of the heroine’s evolvement from an immature schoolgirl to a compassionate woman. If you are a fan of time travel romance then make it a point to read Teri Barnett’s Through the Mists of Time. You won’t regret it.” 4 Roses – A Romance Review

AUTHOR BIO:

Growing up in the ’70’s, I read every romance novel I could find, vowing one day to write my own. It took me until the 90’s to start writing seriously, but in the span of about ten years, I crafted four novels, a novella, and many short stories. The first novel I wrote, Hunter Moon, will never be seen. But first novels tend to be that way.
