Time Travel for Love @kmnbooks #ValentinesDay #Blog Hop Feb 6-14 #ASMSG

THE CONTEST IS CLOSED AND THE WINNER IS... DENISE HOLCOMB! CONGRATULATIONS!
THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR PARTICIPATING INT HE HOP.

Valentine's Day is celebrated on February 14 and is the day of romantic gestures. People hand out cards and buy chocolates and flowers for the people they love. It's all about the romance, but what if you and your one and only love kept missing each other, or perhaps he or she wasn't even from this century? If given the chance, would you travel back in time to find him or her?

For this Valentine's Day post, I'm focusing on what we would do for love as we explore the possibilities of 'what if'?

From finding a portal to using a time machine or any other method that manipulates time and space, time travel romances have been an appealing notion to many. Who doesn't want to visit medieval Ireland or Scotland or even the wild, wild west? What if you could stop someone from making a life-shaping mistake? The possibilities are endless.

In my time travel tale, Two Worlds Collided, Evie travels back in time from 2007 to 1997 to save Rock Star, Bellamy Lovel from ending his life. A ritual is involved and her essence, not her body, travels along the timeline to a point where she merges with her younger self. Changing the past is not an easy attempt, and changing someone's destiny proves even more of a challenge.

There are rules to time travel. You can't travel back in time to the same event line twice. It's a one-time shot. Everyone has choices, a fork in the road that can lead to two totally different outcomes. Doesn't mean one path will be what you hoped for, but it's an option if you know the other path totally sucks.

To travel back in time to change someone's past, the correct variable must be present to make the time travel a success. Evie had those variables. She had crossed paths with Bellamy when she was young and would have crossed paths with him again, but she'd taken another path. She was supposed to be with him on the final tour where he ended his life. Last, she possesses an item that belonged to Bellamy. She had the anchor to the past and she had an anchor to come back to the present because of her friends that would be waiting for her return.

Sounds easy, right? Well, bad-boy Bellamy doesn't always cooperate with her plans to nudge him in the right direction. Every move she makes doesn't give her a clear picture to what he'll decide in the end.

About Two Worlds Collided:

Evie Reid on a whim agrees to travel back in time to 1997 to change bad boy Bellamy Lovel's path of destruction. She's smart with a college degree, but she is still fan-girl crazy for the rock band, Civilized Heathens. Evie knows despite all Bellamy's smiles and enthusiasm on the stage, he's destined to end it all on one lonely night in a hotel room unless she can change his path.

Bellamy isn't keen on having Evie as his personal assistant, hired by his band mates to watch over him, and keep him on schedule. However, there is something about the woman that sparks his interest, despite his best to ignore her. When darkness threatens to consume him, he realizes she may be the only light that will chase the shadows away.

In medium bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High 60 to 90 seconds, stirring until smooth.

Dip cooled cookie balls, one at a time, into the melted chocolate and place them on the cookie sheet. (You may have to reheat chocolate)

A Nibbling Valentine Sweetheart… Flowers and Fangs @RebeccaJVickery @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

********************************************************************

She'd known Tim since the fourth grade—their parents had been longtime friends—but she only recently started dating him. They hadn't even slept together yet, but the way Tim's hands slid over her body the other night, and the way he kissed her with teeth, tongue and lips, she'd been considering the tumble into bed. That is until he bit her neck, drawing blood. His impromptu hickey put a damper on the mood. He was apologetic, but remained on edge. If she didn't know better, she'd say he was strung out on drugs, but Tim was straight laced as they come. He didn't even take over the counter meds if he could help it.

He told her he thought he was coming down with something. Said his brother and sister were ill and had stayed home tucked in bed for a better part of a week.

Tim ended up going home early, which despite his weird behavior, she was disappointed.

*********************************************************************************

I'm sure Sloane would have preferred the flowers over the impromptu hickey. Especially if it turns out to be much more than just a small mark on her neck.

Have a happy Valentine's Day, and beware of nibbling Valentine sweethearts. lol

Importance of Valentine's Day Romance

Everyone likes a little romance in his or her lives. It gives us the feeling of togetherness. It makes the relationship stronger and gives us a possibility of experiencing our first breathtaking kiss all over again. Romance is warmth and understanding, a bond of trust and love. Valentine’s Day gives us a chance to charm the one person we care most for.

Authors let’s celebrate with our romances. How would our characters celebrate Valentine’s Day? Share a scene of their first kiss. Share your blurbs or a short excerpt. Don’t forget to supply links to your website or where to buy your book. Have fun!

Readers celebrate today by telling us about your favorite Valentine’s Day or what you think is romantic. Is it a stroll along the beach? Movie night? A nice bubble bath? If you want, share you favorite romantic couples of all time. I love Claire and Jamie in Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.
