A Leap in Time

What do you get when you cross time travel to ancient Pompeii with romance? 
 A main character who discovers who she really is.

The morning after hanging an antique painting, Lexi Carter notices strange noises in her living room. Scared beyond words, she confronts the sounds only to discover that the landscape itself has come alive. Did Roman soldiers on horseback just gallop across the thing?

She impulsively touches the painting and is sucked into the world of ancient Pompeii. Lexi meets Marcus, a Roman Adonis, who occupies her every thought, and sends her senses into a tailspin.

The year is 59AD and Pompeii is at its peak of glory and prosperity. Lexi is faced with the decision of choosing between two worlds, her modern day Los Angeles or ancient Pompeii…with the man who captured her heart and soul.

My 4 Star Review of A Leap in Time, Book One in The Travelers: 
Engy Albasel Neville sends her main character back to ancient Pompeii where she meets the man of her dreams.  Lexi knows the fate of Pompeii and yet is drawn back to the city to be with Marcus.  She manages to figure out how to time travel at her own convenience and starts her quest to balance the best of both worlds.  As a reader I was reminded of the similarities in how it feels to be in love, despite the year or city.  I look forward to reading Book Two in The Travelers Series and applaud Ms. Neville for a job well done.
