Jane Austen Time Traveler

The Timegathering Book Series

Book Four

by Rachel Dacus


GENRE:   Sci-Fi



Lonely Regency romance writer travels to the future, meets her fans, dips into a pearly swimming pool, and falls for its owner. Can she ever go home again…

If Jane Austen’s novels had never ever existed, would we have rom-com movies and women’s fiction? But the young writer is discouraged by a publisher’s rejection and ready to give up writing. And an unwelcome marriage proposal she has rashly accepted spells her doom.

Someone must save history and Jane Austen! When a stranger calls and claims to be an interested publisher, a desperate Jane agrees to go with him to his office. That office turns out to be in the future. And it's not an office, but a bookstore in southern California in 2024 where fans of Jane Austen gather every month to discuss her works.

Jane greets the Jane Austen Superfan Club, only to find that superfans can be super picky. Discouraged by their critiques, Jane wants different adventures. Even deadly, dangerous ones. And oh, yes! Romantic ones.

Her “publisher” had hoped to inspire Jane’s writing by showing her a book club devoted to her writing. But when she meets a tall, handsome superfan, Jane decides to chart her own course. She disappears with her new friend, and history may have to save itself …



Will stood and extended his hand to her. “Shall we?”

She repressed the words. I should infinitely prefer a book. Her dismay tumbled out. “Oh, no! That kind of … dancing ... I couldn’t. Not with so many strangers!”

He shook his head, smiling. His hand still insisted. “You’re not turning me down? If you venture onto the floor with me, I will show you three simple steps. You can follow them or stand still. Raise one hand in the air. We can call whatever you do dancing. So, shall we?”

How could she turn down the man whose blue eyes seemed to pin her into a world she wanted more than the one she had left behind? It would be rude to refuse. They were looking at her, smiles pleasant but quick to be disappointed if she really said no.

Her face flushed fiercely. Despite the gentle evening breeze, the impulse seized her. She rose, took his hand, and let Will lead her to the floor. Jane held onto his hand as he stepped onto it and swayed gently, holding her gaze. But until he reached out his other hand for hers, she had not fully decided. Putting her hand into his, she stepped onto the floor. She knew not what step to take next, but lent herself to Will’s lead.

The deep rhythms thrummed in her limbs, pungent as the scents on the evening air, the Margarita Punch, and Will’s gaze. Gazing up at him was easy now in this dim light. The musicians shifted to another tune, livelier even, all rhythm and little melody, but rounded and warm like she felt now.

“Do you like this?” Will leaned over to ask, his voice low so as not to be overheard.

She smiled with abandon. “I love it!” His touch anchored her. The beam in his eye was a lighthouse on a dark sea.
