A lover from another time
When Ted Ennis steps out the doors of the Criterion Theatre for a cigarette and finds himself in Victorian London, he begins to doubt his sanity. At first he thinks it's all a film set, and is sure that the strikingly handsome young man leaning against a lamppost must be the leading man…
What starts as a sordid transaction with a beautiful rent boy quickly turns into something much deeper, drawing him back again and again as he gets to know Jem and craves meaningful encounters with him.
But Ted doesn't understand the exact conditions necessary for his trips through time—and for Jem, time may actually be running out. Now Ted has one last shot to get back to Jem and save their relationship, before it's too late…
A novel take on time travel and the old-as-time theme of forbidden love are at the center of this new novel from Merrow (Hard Tail). When Ted Ennis steps out the door of the present-day theater where he works and into Victorian London, he thinks his old brain injury is acting up. But the rent boy he meets in the past, Jem, is all too real. After Ted returns to his own time, he's driven by a complex cocktail of curiosity, guilt, and desire to seek another encounter with Jem. The two men develop a mutual attraction and tenderness despite the harsh penalties for being caught together, but as their feelings begin to truly bloom, Ted finds the portal may have shut forever. Sweet, fun, and intriguing, this is a fun, quick read for a foggy evening.
