L.E. Towne's novel has it all: adventure, mystery, and monsters. The writing's smooth and witty, and the plot's twisty enough to cast a spell. 

A practical detective with a gift for killing….monsters.

Tamberlyn Paradiso is a Philadelphia detective with road rage and abnormally high dry-cleaning bills. Demon hunting is a messy business. Dealing with mob bosses and perps all day is the easiest part of Tam’s job.  It’s her clandestine night work that’s hell, dealing with hostiles that range from demons to vampires with an occasional ghoul thrown in.  She thought her ability to see these creatures was unique—until....


A 16th century warrior with both the sword and the pen.


Christopher Marlowe is a poet, bard and play maker, commissioned by Queen Elizabeth I as a spy for the British Realm, he has a unique ability—he’s a time walker who hunts monsters in every century.  When he finds himself in the City of Brotherly Love for the third time in the 21st century, he leaps in to save the life of a snarky policewoman who captures both his heart and imagination, but....


Time is not on their side.


With Marlowe's knowledge and Tam's street sense, they can be an unbeatable team if they join forces. But history is already written, and the greatest threat to Marlowe’s life may not be the monsters they hunt, but the simple act of returning to his own time.


Can they defeat the monster that plagues her city?  Arrest the crime boss responsible for murder and mayhem? Most of all, will Tam uncover the secret to controlling Marlowe’s time travel before he’s destined to leave her side, and her heart, forever?


A silver-tongued playwright with washboard abs and a mighty sword? What woman wouldn't swoon, right? While Tam's not given to swooning, the acid-tongued Philadelphia detective still falls for Kit Marlowe. Yes, that Marlowe, the Elizabethan poet, who time-travels with the phases of the moon. Together they fight otherworldly elements that slip through time.

-Nancy Young, award-winning author of the Something in the Dark series (Seeing Things, Hearing Things, and Sensing Things)
