Tales of a Traveler by NJ Layouni
Broken hearts aren't always broken. Sometimes they're just bruised.
Hoping to forget about her worthless ex-boyfriend - not to mention the humiliating way in which they parted - Martha sets out on a long hike taking in the dramatic scenery of the English Lake District.
But as she negotiates her way across a set of ancient stepping stones, disaster strikes. One false step and Martha plunges into an angry river.
Time Travel. Sideways.
She wakes up in a cave, wearing nothing but her dodgy, mismatched underwear, and her only company is that of the strange man who saved her life.
Tall, dark, and extremely handsome, Vadim certainly has the potential to help Martha forget a lot of things, especially that treacherous louse Tony!
But this isn't the twenty-first century, and medieval Erde is nothing like home!
If she's to have any hope of fitting in, Martha's going to need a lot of help. Vadim offers his protection, but it comes at a price.
If Martha wants his help she'll have to pretend to be his wife!
Vadim is a wanted man. An outlaw.
The last thing his life needs are complications of the female kind. But when he finds the strange woman lying beside the river he cannot abandon her. Despite the risks, and against all of his better judgment, Vadim offers to help Martha find a way home.
Can Martha adapt to life in a medieval society? Can she avoid the Evil Earl and his minions? And, more importantly, will she find the courage to trust her heart again?
