Clever and inventive, Deb Stover grips readers from the very first page of this engaging time-travel romance. Told from a male point of view (and a more charming man you'll be hard pressed to find), SHADES OF ROSE heralds the beginning of a glorious career for this new author.

For many years Dylan Marshall has dreamed of a beautiful woman he has never met, but one he has seen-as a ghost! When he inherits his grandfather's Colorado property he must comply with the will's stipulation that he live in the family's ancestral cabin.

No sooner does Dylan take up residence than he "meets" the beauty who haunts his nights. Once he begins searching for a hidden treasure he finds himself swept back in time to actually save the life of his ghost, Rose.

Caught in a time warp, Dylan finds himself trapped in a web that pulls what he knows of the present into the past. The hunt for a priceless fortune and Rose's love (as well as his skills as a doctor) allow Dylan to make changes-important, wonderful changes-to the past that will enable him to find the perfect love, not once, but twice.
