If it can’t be photographed, it doesn’t exist. That mantra is shattered when Jaci falls in love with a man who doesn’t exist in her time, all because she photographed a carousel horse that doesn’t exist in his. Jaci Eastman is inadvertently drawn through time to 1874 when she photographs a restored Dentzel carousel. She lands at Wildwood horse farm and must rely on the good graces of its owner, Nicholas Westbrooke.
Nicholas is a man who likes routine, but Jaci unwittingly shatters his illusions about women, passion and love. She tells stories of flying machines and teaches science to his niece. She’s outrageous in her dress, manners and language, and yet he finds her irresistible.
Jaci has always believed only reality can be photographed. But then she falls in love with Nicholas. When he begins carving the exact horse that transported her through time, will she use it to return to the present, or stay and create a new reality?
Samantha Delaney sees the book of poems as clues that her father is in trouble, so she travels to the Nevada Territory to find him. Unfortunately, she must deal with two men of totally opposite persuasion, but both of whom think she needs a guardian. Her gentleman companion Roger Smith, and the ever-present Sheriff of Silver River Tyler Sloan, go out of their way to aggravate her, interfere with her investigation, and create a disturbing emotional upheaval in her life. Roger has a somewhat reticent nature, which Samantha considers an asset since she feels she can, given enough time, mold him into the kind of husband she wants. However, as Samantha unravels the clues to her father’s whereabouts, she finds Roger is not who he seems and there is far more to Sheriff Sloan than she first thought. His passion for life, and the passion he awakens in Sam have her quickly rethinking her ideas of independence.
