Stealing Time follows the life of Hannah Lyonns, an ordinary woman with a major issue- she keeps losing time. Mysteriously she can be fine one moment only to wake up somewhere different and time has lapsed. Frustrated that there is no explanation for these events, Hannah works hard to find a common thread and it appears in the form of an intense and sexy man.
Zeit, a keeper of the world’s natural balance, has experienced all of what this world has to offer and this mortal woman Hannah intrigues him. Problem is Time has run out for her. He must now find ways to keep her alive long enough to know her, not an easy task as fate and her clumsiness are working against him.
Stealing time is a short book that grabs you from the start and leaves you wishing the author wrote more. As one book in a series, I can’t wait to read the rest.

Our Blog was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
Father Time’s son, Zeit Geist, must sacrifice a mortal’s lifetime to the Fates each New Year’s Eve. Last year—inexplicably, really—he made an 11:59 substitution. The Fates are pissed and they’re after his mortal Hannah. With the year ending, he ought to figure out why he’d saved her—and why he keeps doing it.
Following an unlucky year, Hannah Lyons needs a week’s holiday in a lodge to unwind. What she gets is near-death experiences and a sexy immortal who can’t avoid kissing her, but might have to kill her. After all, even Zeit can’t hold back time indefinitely.
“What are you doing to me?”
“What do you think I’m doing?”
She glared at him. Saying it out loud would sound utterly stupid. “I keep having these lapses of time. One minute, I’m in one place and, the next, I’m in another. And four times now, I’ve seen you walking away from me when it’s happened.”
“So, you’re accusing me of doing something to your memory? Or of stalking you?” He took another sip of his drink as if he was only mildly interested in her response.
She opened her mouth to say something before snapping it closed. What was she accusing him of? It all sounded silly and impossible, and he’d be around this whole week. Every time they saw each other, she’d feel humiliated that she’d actually thought…
Oh, who cared? She was going to get brain cancer from all this testing if she couldn’t get to the bottom of things.
“You’re doing something to time. I don’t know what you’re doing, but I don’t think your name is just an odd little coincidence.”
For a blink, she saw something in his eyes and a quick half-smile. “It’s a family name.”
“So, your entire family manipulates time?”
