Book Blog Tour of Aching for Always by Gwyn Cready
Welcome to the book blog tour of Aching for Always by Gwen Cready!
Ambitious and feisty Josephine "Joss" O'Malley has spent years fighting to keep her mother's map-making company alive. Just when she finds herself considering taking a risky next step wiht bad-boy entrepreneur Rogan Reynolds -- whose generosity has helped keep the business afloat -- Joss meets dark and mysterious Hugh Hawksmoor.
Hugh's deft touch and old-world seduction stir Joss's desires like a storm at sea, and she has no clue that he has sailed three hundred years into the future to avenge the death of his brother at the hands of her father. Or that she holds the key to a map that will help him undoe the destructive changes her father wrought in the past.
When Hugh lures Joss into a treacherous journey through time, there's not a twenty-first-century trick that can save her. But when she applies her own insticts to a course she thought was set, she discovers that the high seas hold some scandalous surprises.
Aching for Always combines the fun of historical romance with time travel.
Joss struggles to keep her mother's company afloat. Hugh travels through time to correct an injustice. They're drawn to each other from the moment that they meet and as we gradually learn how their lives intertwine, we're drawn into Gwen Cready's story.
Loyalty, love, and great injustice drive the story forward -- and make for a gripping adventure.
