An enchanting collection of delightful tales with a supernatural twist.

Brought together into one collection for the first time, these spellbinding tales combine romance and rich historical settings to bring to life stories of lovers who – in one way or another – are all lost in time.

Ancient ruins bring together an unlikely couple; a young woman finds herself on the verge of sanity after a visit from a mermaid; a photographer finds a pair of mysterious twins occurring in her pictures again and again… Mysteries unfold and souls are united in this new, charming collection from Deryn Lake, the mistress of historical fiction.
