I researched a time travel technique for a new story. I contacted CERN Labs in Switzerland and spoke to a theoretical physicist who suggested I contact a college of his at Duke University who teaches a class on how to integrate science into fiction books. It was an AWESOME experience. The title of the book is Einstein’s Theorem and is almost ready to be published.
The Pirate’s Jewel
[Historical Fiction – Pirates]
Deception and family honor are at stake and her heart as well.
Wesley Reynolds will do anything to avenge his family’s banishment from Dundhragon Castle – even throw in with the notorious pirate, MacAlpin. His plan: ruin Lord Ewan’s trading network. He has an even more devious plan for his father’s best friend, the man who abandoned them at the eleventh hour. He’ll ruin the man’s most precious jewel, his daughter Darla. Wesley comes so close to succeeding he can almost taste it, but revenge is not nearly as sweet as Darla’s kisses.
Lovely Darla Maxwell has no prospects of marriage. Her father and Lord Ewan search to find the right husband, but Darla’s special gift frightens her prospects. She is a young woman with visions that often come true, and the murky image of a man haunt her. She is certain that it’s Lord Ewan’s soon-to-be son-in-law, but the vision changes when she meets Wesley. To her, the meaning couldn’t be any clearer.
But all is not well. Revelations surface, indicating that Wesley has been deceived and his revenge misplaced. Will he find the truth of what happened to his family in time to stop the pirates? Will Darla forgive him? Most of all, will he ever forgive himself?
It’s a fast-paced, romantic adventure from start to finish!
