Out of the Past ~ By Dana Roquet
Torie Mills is beautiful, successful and a New York Times best-selling historical romance author. Determined to find some solace from her fast paced and demanding life, she decides to move to Mahaska County, Iowa—a mile outside of the tiny town of Fremont and into her great-great-grandparent’s old homestead. Her plan is to restore the property to its 1870 glory days.
She hires handsome, renovation expert Dave Cameron to do the work and together they bring the old Victorian house back to life. When Torie moves in, she discovers that restoring the house has opened a portal into the past. Time traveling each night to the Fremont of old, becomes her wonderful escape and her secret obsession.
When she and Dave become lovers, he gets swept into the travels as well—until they both realize, much too late, that there was evil in the past that would have been better left alone.
Great story about life,love,time travel & loss.Emotional roller coaster ride for sure! There were parts where the tears just flowed and parts where you had to laugh.The characters are so lovable and real to life form.I really enjoyed this book and was in awe at the way the author had so much going on in the story line but kept me interested without losing me.
I'm not really into time travel books but this one had such an awesome twist to it that it made it seem real.And the true love between the characters Dave and Torie,was beyond awesome!Watching the love grow between them and watching Torie learn to trust her feelings was great. *Be warned...If you don't care hot steamy love scenes,you may want to skip those pages.I highly recommend this you read this awesome book on love,loss and going back in time.You won't be sorry!
