Chicago Police Detective Ryan Daire inherits an old house from family friend. When he arrives to look at the property with his police partner Ramiro Menandez, he notices a beautiful woman in a mirror that his buddy never sees; she is oddly dressed reminding him of movies taking place early in the twentieth century. Though he considers selling the house, he moves in. When he sleeps he dreams of making love with her; his fantasy seems much more than a wet dream as if they share the same bed.
Ryan researches who the woman haunting him is. He learns her name is Hope Stillwater, she lived in this mansion, and she died violently in 1906. He vows to find a way back to her time to save the life of the woman he loves and find a way for them to live together either in her present or his even as a case he works on endangers his Hope for the future.
DARING TIME is a invigorating fast-paced romantic time travel police procedural. The story line grips the audience with a fabulous “cold case” whodunit, a present day investigation, and plenty of sexual encounters across the century. Beth Kery provides a powerful WICKED BURN of a tale that will readers believing in time travel.
