The Time Rovers Series
Time Travel, Shapeshifters and Jack the Ripper
Read the first 3 chapters of Sojourn here.
Victorian London harbors dark secrets. Shape-shifters weave skillful illusions, cloaking their identities while a killer stalks the unwary in WhiteChapel. For time rover Jacynda Lassiter, the mission seems simple — find an overdue ‘tourist’ and return him to 2057 before he alters history.
To survive the bloody autumn of 1888, Jacynda must walk a dangerous line between fantasy and reality, between love and duty. To prevail she must outwit a madman whose legacy will endure for centuries.

The most dangerous assassin is the one you cannot see.
Jacynda Lassiter’s latest assignment is a no-win situation: find Harter Defoe, the greatest of all Time Rovers, and return him to the future against his will. After he attempts an assassination at a posh Victorian dinner party, Jacynda is given an ultimatum—capture Defoe or spend the next decade in prison as punishment for her failure.
When her mission is threatened by the shape-shifting Transitives, history veers on a new and dangerous tangent. To save herself and preserve England’s future, Jacynda Lassiter must find a way to navigate through two centuries of intrigue to thwart an invisible evil.

History is melting down, courtesy of a multi-century plot to bring the shape-shifters to power. Only Time Rover Jacynda Lassiter can set events back on course. But that’s unlikely. She’s been committed to a Victorian insane asylum, her memories erased.
Jacynda’s Victorian companions are facing equal difficulties: Dr. Alastair Montrose is caught between his duty to uncover the truth and powerful foes who wish it buried. Detective-Sergeant Jonathon Keats is on the run, framed for murder. Keats’ arch enemy Desmond Flaherty can prove him innocent, but the anarchist isn’t about to come forward, not with the life of his only daughter on the line.
If their enemies succeed, Flaherty’s cache of explosives will ignite the biggest conflagration since the Great Fire of 1666. The future will change. Then there will be no sanctuary from the Madman’s Dance.
