He was missing for five days, and was then found wandering near Gunnar’s Hall in Baltimore, delirious and possibly drunk, wearing strange clothes and carrying a cane. Poe died four days later in a Baltimore hospital, never having regained proper consciousness except to call out for a mysterious person by the name of “Reynolds.” Of course Poe was a Clocker, and I knew I would write that story someday. What I hadn’t expected was who would find Poe when he stumbled into the 21st Century. Her name is Alexandra “Ren” Reynolds, and she has a secret too.

Anna King isn’t even dreaming of a new man in her life. Not after a holiday romance went all wrong thirty years ago. Her career, her beautiful home, and most of all her twins are all she wants and needs. Who needs a man if you have fantastic friends? Not this well respected Auckland lawyer.
