Torn between two centuries - and two men.
The Great Charleston Earthquake catapults Penrose Heatherton from the 1880s into the present day. Though she's still residing in Arundell Manor, it's a very different world - with a different man inhabiting the ancestral estate. And Keat Arundell is every bit as brooding and intriguing as his ancestor - her former lover - had been.
Scared beyond reason by the new reality and the brilliant man who now lives there, Penrose hides in the mansion's secret tunnels. Until Keat finds her, and soon they discover an immense passion. But their days are numbered. When strange things start happening, Penrose realizes she must go back to her own era. For if she can't close a loophole in time, the man she's come to love will never exist.
