Tour Kick Off: Sex. Coffee. Time Travel. by @tymslyder #giveaway

Romance / Adventure / Suspense

Date Published: Jan 20, 2015

(Time Frame Series Book Two) 
In Book Two, Adventure-Romance author Lesley Meryn has her 'second date', a little bit of Time Travel, with the volatile yet seductive scientist Miles Sherwood. She wakes up to a spring day in 1765 Yorkshire. Miles should be there, waiting for her, but he's nowhere to be found.
Circumstances spin rapidly out of control. Someone keeps trying to kill her new Eighteenth Century companion and self-appointed protector, Mick Kenning, a handsome and hunky stableman at the New Inn. Lesley helps him to foil these clumsy, but persistent and mysterious attempts on his life.   
As the days pass, Miles remains missing. The clock is literally ticking down the days. She has less than two weeks to find him or she may be trapped in the past. Has Miles fallen victim to the very real dangers of an earlier time?
Complications multiply with the appearance of an elusive, badass, Highwayman. With a hefty price on his head, agents of the Crown have arrived at the New Inn to track him down. For Mick it's personal, he despises the Highwayman. The Highwayman, not satisfied with jewelry, and coins, stole away the woman Mick once loved.
Will Lesley find Miles in time? What has happened to him? Will Mick ever find out who wants him dead? Will he ever find outwhy?
Balancing between high adventure, sword fighting, fisticuffs, pistols, and daggers, Lesley must use her wits, imagination, and every trick from her own books to find Miles, survive the Eighteenth Century, and return to her own time. 


#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?  I wouldn't say career, but as a great pleasure, oh, yes...

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?  Making the impossible seem plausible.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?   I have had the support of several friends who read drafts and offer feedback.

#4 – What is next for your writing? I am currently doing research for Book Three of the Time Frame Series, and I'm nearly finished with a kind of  "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" spy-heist piece.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?  Right now I am finishing The Count of Monte Cristo.

DESCRIBE Your Book in 1 Tweet: Sex. Coffee. Time Travel. in that order, then go back and repeat.

This or That?

#1 - iPod or Mp3? iPod

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla? Mmmmm. Chocolate.......

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries? French Fries

#4 – Comedy or Drama?  Comedy (but my sense of it is particular)

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks?  Neither. Please just give me Rafael Sabatini. Or chocolate.

#6 – Fantasy or Reality?  Why not both?  They're not mutually exclusive.

#7 – Call or Text?  Definitely call.  I want to hear a real voice. Not fond of texting, but it has its uses.

#8 – Public School or Home School?  Public School! 

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate?!

#10 – eBook or Paperback?  I use a mix of both! I live where it's hard to find books in English, so Amazon is book magick!
