Happy Friday, everyone!

I hope you had a great week and are gearing up for a wonderful, relaxing weekend. Today, I'm honored to have back on my blog a fantastic writing duo, Deborah O'Neill Cordes and Cary Morgan Frates, who write as Morgan O'Neil. 

Deborah and Cary have dropped by to introduce you to their re-release of the TIME TRAVELING ROMANCE SERIES. I have such respect for both of these authors individually. As duo writers, all I can say is WOW!! They have a way of drawing the reader from the present into past worlds where every sense comes alive. I'm thrilled to give a huge shout out for this series because I'm unable to put their books down.

Here is a little peek of what you can expect.

In the midst of this great adventure, Gwen falls in love with the complex and passionate Alberto, to whom she reveals her identity as a woman. But can Alberto learn to love her strong and independent nature and help Gwen in her quest to discover her rightful place in time?
