Love Spell, Jan 2005, 6.99
A pandemic plague devastated the world, especially women; few females remain available and the competition for them can be fierce. Most men choose a seemingly easier route to finding a wife. They transport someone from the past through the work of artists like the painter Conlean.
In 2005 Philadelphia, research geneticist Jordan studies fertility. However, her work abruptly ends when Conlean's portrait of her pulls her into his time period. She rejects the notion of becoming a fixture on her host's keeper shelf as a consort to Conlean's sire would be, but also finds herself attracted to the artist who brought her through time. Still she wants to go back home as being a prized pampered possession grows tedious and not allowed any risk or work is too difficult on her active mind. Although she feels she belongs in 2005, she also find Conlean's arms feel better than anyone or thing she ever felt before.
