A GLOSSY WOODEN BOX, INLAID WITH AN IMAGE OF A DARK HAIRED WOMAN. IT'S MYSTERIES SEALED TIGHT FOR GENERATIONS, OR WERE THEY?

PAST
The reclusive Maxwell Wolford, Earl of Dorsey, acquires the box--only to discover that the beautiful Lady Amanda Pratt holds the key to it's secrets--and his heart...

PRESENT
Tina Chamberlain's fiance, Ryan Kinsey, is convinced the unusual box in her possession contains the secret to his research at NASA. But what Tina needs to discover is if Ryan truly wants her...or the box only she can unseal...

FUTURE
During her studies, scientist Sara Tolliver accidentally triggers a time machine, bringing a man named Kentar back from the future...a future where women no longer exist. Little do they guess that their only hope of being together lies in Sara's old heirloom chest. As does the future of love itself...



Susan Kearney's Bio

Susan Kearney used to light herself on fire four times a day. Now she does something really hot — she writes romantic suspense for Harlequin Intrigue.

While she hasn't performed her signature "fire" dive from a 10-meter platform in years, she started diving at age 10. By age 12, she'd won the New Jersey State Championship, and by college, she was a three-time All-American Diver.

While attending the University of Michigan, she earned a business degree that led to her diverse careers as, variously, a partner in a barter business, a real estate appraiser, a mover and renovator of houses, and a once- owner of three hair salons. Finally, in 1995, she sold her first book and became a full-time writer. She's currently plotting her way through her 30th novel.

Of all her careers, her favorite is wife and mother. She married her teenage sweetheart and lives with her husband, two children, and Boston terrier in sunny Florida. She now beats the heat not by diving into cold water, but with her new hobby — figure skating. Susan also enjoys writing science fiction, screenwriting, boating, and traveling to foreign countries.
