Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

passions controlled by the hands of time - Untimely (An Untimely Romance #1) by J & L Wells


Heather Richardson is a seventeen-year-old British girl whose life quickly becomes an emotional roller coaster when she meets Ruben Brown, a twenty-year-old man who works for her father at Freesdon Manor. As much as Heather wants to love Ruben, the cracks in their relationship begin to show as her eighteenth birthday draws nigh.

In a surprising turn of events Heather is confronted by Frank, an intriguing man from a past that dates back to the nineteenth century. His untimely presence changes everything.

When she’s thrown back in time by an unrelenting force, Heather realizes that her life is not what it appears to be. Her future has already been written, and it seems she cannot escape her fate, a fate determined by a love lost long ago.

In her struggle to find herself, Heather must chose her destiny amidst a dangerous love triangle, vengeful lovers, and passions controlled by the hands of time.

Across the time 

The story needs to be accurate as to the time you’re writing in. The etiquette, the speech, even the way in which the tables were laid and decorated. We then try to imagine how a person from the past would fit in to the world we live in today, and visa versa. 

The past tends to be a harder part of the story to pull off, because there are so many things we have to take into account. For example, we have to consider relatives, and how relatives would react to this strange person turning up from the future… Women lived and behaved so differently, they hadn’t got a voice to speak out like we have today, so putting a feisty twenty-first century character in the middle of their perfect world would bring with it more than a few problems. 

We then need to concoct a believable way in which our characters can travel through time, without making it silly or too farfetched. 

I like to add twists, and interlinking parts to the stories, and even the sequels we write we try to interlink. Writing time travel the possibilities are endless, so we really have scope to use our imagination and create our stories. 

The romance side of our novels are easier to write , though our characters don’t tend to fall into one another’s arms. Love is something that has to be worked at in no matter which century they reside.

About the author:
Laura Wells is a swimming teacher, with a love of books, animals and, of course, Jane Austen. Once a national swimmer, she now runs three swim schools of her own. She enjoys spending her spare time with her family and two mad Shiba Inus. She lives in Staffordshire, England.

Judy Wells works at a school; in her spare time she enjoys writing poetry and novels, and spending time with her animals. She also lives in Staffordshire, England.

Laura and Judy are a mother and daughter duo; with Judy’s love of poetry and writing and Laura’s ideas, they work extremely well together. Time-travel and historical romance novels are their passion, and they hope that after you have read their books, you will feel the same.

The description was a bit confusing. I did like the explanation though. It showed that the authors thought about what they were writing and tried to make it accurate.
