When she rescues an abandoned cat, Amber Gerald has no idea that she’s interfering in the mad scheme of a time travelling bank robber. Or that the man that walks into her store dressed like Blade is about to become her bodyguard.

I couldn’t put this story down. I was caught up in the adventure and romance. I loved watching Amber and Gray explore their feelings.
