SHADES OF THE PAST

Author(s): 

Favorite author Sandra Heath spins another web of magic that catapults a modern-day beauty into the glamorous past of Regency England.

In honor of the restoration of the famous Hannover theater, the management decides to replicate the original opening night. In the cast is beautiful actress Laura Reynolds, still smarting from her painful breakup with a former lover. Little does she realize that she is in just the right spot at just the right time to step through to the past and into the life of the arrogant Lord Blair Deveril.

Hired by a vengeful enemy to first seduce and then abandon Deveril, the Laura of the past desperately struggles to find a way out of the trap that could end in tragedy for all. Swinging back and forth in time in dizzying fashion, Laura's only hope is the man she has come to love above all else.

Ms. Heath skillfully juxtaposes contemporary values with Regency notions to provide an exciting conflict with a resolution that will keep you breathless. (June, 224 pp., $4.99)
