The Wild Rose Press, Inc (December 29, 2014) Spicy Reincarnation/Time Travel Romance
Mary Gillgannon takes us to Denver where Connar, a ninth-century time traveler, hopes to reunite with his true love. He’s managed to learn the language, open a Wiccan store and exercise a great deal of patience while waiting for Aisling to present herself. Unfortunately, when he finally sees her, she doesn’t appear to have any memory of him.
Allison, the reincarnate Aisling, meets Connar while doing research. She’s immediately attracted to him even though these strange thoughts/memories occur when she’s around him. Allison can’t understand where these images are coming from—green hillsides, jagged cliffs, people dressed in medieval garments, burning brands, and swords. She blames the images on alcohol and lack of food, but something nags at her. And all the while, she’s falling for Connar and talking herself out of her feelings. Besides, she’s too busy building her career and the last man she loved taught her love doesn’t last. T
o muddy the waters further, someone else from the past followed Connar to present day Denver and will stop at nothing to keep Connar from Allison.
CALL DOWN THE MOON presents a well-crafted plot with a few big surprises. Gillgannon helps us suspend reality as scenes shift from ninth-century Ireland to present day Denver where a Wiccan group both helps and hinders the reunification.
Add this book to your TBR List if you like time travel, suspense, and romance with a little spice. You’re sure to fall in love with Connar, sympathize with Allison, and have a strong negative reaction to supporting characters from the past and present.
