Welcome to my tour stop for In Time for You by Chris Karlsen. In Time for You is a historical romance with time travel and is out now. Check out the tour page for the full schedule.
While horseback riding in the English countryside, sisters, Electra and Emily Crippen find themselves trapped in a tear in time. Thrown back to 1357 England and caught by a local noble, they are in a place that is home but as frightening and unfamiliar as an alien world would be. With no idea how the tear in time came about, the one thing they do know is: they must stay together and stay near to where the event took place in hopes of discovering the way back to their modern life. That certain need to stay together is the first certainty taken from them when one sister is forced to remain in England and one is sent miles away to Wales by royal order.
There is one other hope for help the sisters don’t know exists. It’s Electra’s lover, Roger Marchand. A time traveler himself, he never told her of his past. When he realizes what has happened to the sisters, he enlists the help of a scientist friend to help him open the suspected passageway through time. Any effort to save Electra and Emily will likely cost him his life. This was the time Roger came from, a time when his country, France, was at war with England. If he is discovered on English soil while searching for the sisters, he will either be killed or taken prisoner of war. Any risk is worth saving the life of the woman he loves.
About the Author:
I was born and raised in Chicago. My father was a history professor and my mother was, and is, a voracious reader. I grew up with a love of history and books. My parents also love traveling, a passion they passed onto me. I wanted to see the places I read about, see the land and monuments from the time periods that fascinated me. I’ve had the good fortune to travel extensively throughout Europe, the Near East, and North Africa.
I am a retired police detective. I spent twenty-five years in law enforcement with two different agencies. My desire to write came in my early teens. After I retired, I decided to pursue that dream. I write three different series. My paranormal romance series is called, Knights in Time. My romantic thriller series is Dangerous Waters. The newest is The Bloodstone Series. Each series has a different setting and some cross time periods, which I find fun to write.
I currently live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and four wild and crazy rescue dogs.
What I thought:
In Time for You is the fourth installment in the Knights in Time series, but it can be read as a stand alone.
I love time travel books, I really do. It’s such an interesting concept, and definitely something I would love to do. I typically don’t read a lot of historical romance, but if its set around a time period or event that intrigues me, or if it really has something that hooks me, then I’m in. The time travel is what really drew me in.
Everything about this book was great. The writing, the storyline, the characters were all great. Between the sisters, Electra and Emily, being split up and then the traveling angle, the story flowed smoothly and kept me drawn in right up to the end. Will the sisters make it out or will they become prisoners of war, or worse? You’ll have to read to find out!
I also loved the romantic storylines between not only Electra and Roger, but Emily and Simon as well.
I highly recommend this book to historical romance and paranormal fans. I give In Time for You 4.5 stars.
