Anna can’t believe how much the woman in the picture looks like her. They could be twins, except the picture was taken in 1871. Either she’s a relative, or Anna had a past life in Hamilton, Nevada. Either way, the temptation to visit the old ghost town is too much. She and her friend Kat travel west.

While off exploring on her own, Anna is knocked unconscious when she falls down the steps in the saloon. She can hardly believe her eyes when she wakes.

Beau and Zeke won the Silver Rush Saloon in a poker game and have been partners and secret lovers for over ten years. They don’t know what to make of the woman they found half-dressed in their cellar. She claims to know something terrible that’s about to happen to their town and needs their help.
Will Anna be able to win their love and trust before it’s too late?

Tell us the story behind the story. What inspired you to write this novel?

My husband and I were on vacation and too our Jeep to visit the real ghost town of Hamilton, Nevada.  I was walking the wooded area behind what’s left of the old mill, listening to the wind, when I started thinking about what it would have been like to live back in the 1800’s.  You can still see inside several of the windows in the old buildings and my imagination just ran wild picturing myself back in the time.  When I got home and did some research on the mill itself, and the town of Hamilton, I got the idea of going back in time and experiencing it myself.  I wanted the story to be about someone from our time learning to cope with the differences of 1871.  From that, Anna was born.

Tell us about the book cover. How does it represent your book? How did you choose the artwork?

I can't personally take credit for the cover, it’s one of the talented Ms. Jinger Heaston.  I was given the opportunity to fill out a form, giving my ideas on what I thought would be appropriate for the book.  I gave her the character’s physical descriptions, and a loose idea of what the inside of the saloon would look like.  She came up with the rest and I think she did an awesome job.

Where can readers find out more about you and your work?

You can visit my website at www.missymartine.com . It has all my books listed with excerpts and reviews, and a little bit about my personal life.

I was born, and raised in the great southern state of Tennessee.  In my youth, I studied nursing, and spent several happy years working in the hospitals there until I branched out into medical management in 1980.
In 1998 I was managing a medical supply house in Chattanooga, when I met the love of my life.  The only problem facing me then, he lived way out in Oklahoma.  You see, we had met in a chat room!
He romanced me daily with love letters, flowers and phone calls.  It wasn’t long before I uprooted myself, and moved west to join him.  We married in 1999, and then continued our fantasy romance all over the world.  Together we have traveled in almost all of the Continental United States, and taken trips to Canada and China.
I retired from working in 2002 and it wasn’t long before my husband was encouraging me to find some kind of outlet to occupy my time, something that was challenging, and rewarding.  I was already obsessed with reading about romance, and I began to think I could probably write a good, romantic story.  My husband heartily agreed with me.  With that encouragement, I began writing my first book.  I wasn’t really convinced that anyone else would find it interesting, but he pressed me to take a chance and send it in to a publisher.  To my surprise, it was accepted, and now I’m able to share it with readers everywhere who like a “happily ever after” story.
Today, I’m living in California with my, still romantic, husband of twelve years, and our boys.  Our boys consist of Beau, Midnight, and Bubba, three male cats that allow us to live with them and serve them at their leisure.  I continue to write almost daily, hoping that someone, somewhere will get the same enjoyment from reading my stories, that I get from writing them.

I honestly don't know! I'm pretty modern, and I like having modern medicine and conveniences (plus I'd worry about messing up the space-time continuum)...but two sexy guys could be very tempting, indeed.

I don't think I would stay in the past, no matter how sexy the two men were. I love my modern conveniences too much. And let's put it this way.. if I could find a way home, then they could find a way to come and be with me : p

Hi Missy,

i hope this message stays this time. last one i posted did not go thru for some reason. :D i'm a huge fan and have several of your books already but have not started this series yet. i do have it in my TBRN list and will be moving it to the top so i can get it and the next ones read before you come out with any others in the series and i fall behind even further. LOL! I love the cover,did you design it yourself/have a lot of input into it? i know some authors have little to no say in how their book will look in the end. thank you again for the giveaway.
