THE LAST OF THE TIME POLICE:

It’s “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” meets “Time Bandits” in this action-packed science fiction adventure.

Stan and Jack are the last remaining members of the Time Authority, a government unit formed to correct disruptions to the established Time Line. Although time travel has been officially outlawed, Stan and Jack must make a quick time hop to 16th Century France to clean up some of their careless littering.

Unbeknownst to them, however, Leonardo DaVinci stows away and tumbles out (along with the operating manual for the time machine) in 18th Century England. This disruption is discovered by the Time Authority, as it creates a Chronological Anomaly that begins advancing toward the future and threatens to wipe out all reality. The military and civilian leaders clash before agreeing on a scheme to build one final time machine and send Corporal Spumoni back to correct the Time Line, even though it may ruin any chance of Stan and Jack returning home.

Stan and Jack must crash-land their time machine in 1848, where they discover, due to DaVinci’s influence, a futuristic Victorian England. After nearly colliding with Maggie Wells on her flying machine, she helps them hide their broken Time Hopper. Stan and Jack realize their only hope to fix their machine is to recover the operating manual, if it still even exists. But Special Services agents, led by Maggie’s former boyfriend James Burton, are constantly searching for them. And Jack’s growing attraction for Maggie is tempered by the thought that she could be his great-great-great-great-grandmother.

Meanwhile, in 1768, DaVinci has become a favorite of King George III of England. His only rival is Benjamin Franklin. Jealous, with the help of Lord Frederick North, DaVinci frames Franklin for the theft of his own notebooks. But when DaVinci learns Britain’s plans for his own war machines, he realizes he must work with Franklin to stop Britain’s domination of the globe.

THE RETURN OF THE TIME POLICE:

In this action-packed sequel to “The Last of the Time Police,” Stan and Jack must make a quick time hop to 16th Century France to clean up some of their careless littering.

But stowaway Leonardo DaVinci tumbles out (along with the operating manual for the time machine) in 18th Century England, setting off a Chronological Anomaly that threatens to wipe out all reality.

Stan and Jack crash-land their time machine in 1848, where they discover, due to DaVinci’s influence, a futuristic Victorian England. After nearly colliding with Maggie Wells on her flying machine, she helps them hide their broken Time Hopper.

But Stan and Jack realize their only hope to fix their machine is to recover the operating manual, and Special Services agents, led by Maggie’s former boyfriend James Burton, are constantly searching for them. And Jack’s growing attraction for Maggie is tempered by the thought that she could be his great-great-great-great-grandmother.

Meanwhile, inventor Sam Warner and his wife Sarah have discovered the operating manual for the time machine in a trunk of his grandfather’s things. When Sam coincidentally ends up with the power crystal from Stan and Jack’s machine, and sets about converting an old carriage into his own time machine, they agree to pool their resources.

The unlikely partners must find a way to rescue DaVinci and Benjamin Franklin in the previous century, but when they are captured while trying to recover the Time Carriage, they face execution at the Tower of London. Can the group escape in time to find DaVinci, prevent the destruction of our Timeline, and help Franklin invent the game of golf?

And if they succeed, will they be wiped out of existence?

About Long Hard Ride:
A Gay Fiction Western Novella – 2.99
WARNING: Explicit and graphic man-love scenes
Civil War divides a Nation. Grayson Drake has been sent by a covert spy agency from the South to break Marx Wellbourne out of a Union prison. Ordered to return Wellbourne to Richmond, 400 miles away, Gray soon discovers Marx is courting death from malaria and pneumonia. To complicate matters, the sinfully gorgeous Wellbourne is none other than the same man he coveted from afar four years ago in Charleston.Pursued by the villainous warden of the prison, Major Darkmore, nothing is as it seems when intrigue, suspense and passion collide on the long, hard ride back to Richmond.
Short Excerpt:
A jolt of lightning coursed through him when their hands met. How was it possible the man looked more virile, more handsome than he had yesterday? He’d intended to abandon Gray this morning, before the malaria struck, before the intense hunger for the man had overtaken his every waking moment.
Hell, who was he kidding? Last night the man had walked into his dreams, all sinewy muscle and hard lines. Their fierce, potent joining had rendered him boneless. Now, as the moon dropped from the sky and a bright orange sphere shadowed the man’s face, he recalled every touch, every ragged moan and the ecstasy he found with Gray. A dream, true, but every sensation so vividly real, he knew it existed. He craved the man’s love now as a gut-shot cowpoke craved water.
How had it happened so fast? Why did he feel like he’d known him in another time and place? So much had transpired in the last few years—the battles, the dying men, the covert missions of sneaking behind enemy lines to get his messages through to his superiors. Everything meshed together, the screams, the bloodless faces and the masks of defeat etched on his generals’ weary faces.
Charleston and everything he once loved about the grand old city had faded from his memory like a fog rolling out to sea. While around Gray, a small part of the world he once knew crept back in to the cobwebs of his brain. Perhaps that’s why he was drawn to the man, could no longer entertain the idea of leaving him behind even if he was fit enough to make his way alone. Which he wasn’t at the moment.
