Book Description

$2.99

Deborah isn't paranoid, the universe is against her. She has acne, wears a back brace and has a metal retainer on her teeth. She is secretly in love with her medieval studies professor. He is gorgeous, tall and married. What was there left for her to do but go back into medieval times?

And discover the universe is against her there, too?

Sample Chapter

She was there, the moon, big, golden, opulent. Venus shown beside her, glowing steadily, her light distinct from the sparkle of the stars. That's when it all started. I walked toward the college library on that May night, listening to the rasp of the katydids heralding the spring with their mating songs and I wanted to sing a mating song myself. But I had no one to sing to.

So I trudged onward, wearing my back brace, carrying my lap top and my ever-present feeling of being an ugly outcast in a world of beautiful people.

....my old life imprisoned me. I had scoliosis, which required wearing said back brace, dental braces for my overbite, glasses for my myopia and acne.

Everyone, my parents, my doctor, my dentist, all assured me I would one day emerge from my chrysalis and become a butterfly. I didn't believe it. I thought I would go to my grave, encased in metal, alone and unloved.

...(my doctoral thesis was about sex in the middle ages0

In truth, I was not all that knowledgeable about sex. Sex, as far as I was concerned, was a theoretical object of study. Heaven knew I'd never experienced it. That's not to say I didn't think about it. I was an average seventeen year old girl in that respect. Sex was on my mind constantly and it was the reason I was sitting here in this library on a Saturday night.

That is, because of the sexual attraction I had for my professor, Rogen Maris. The moment I walked into his classroom and he looked at me with those eyes that showed no pity ...my heart was his.

......(My mother) took off the ring that had never left her finger in my living memory. I went to the counter and picked up the ring. Tentatively, I ran my left middle finger over the ring, feeling the slight rise of the lion's head under my fingertip.

...the whole universe swirled around me in bands of light and color. I was beginning to feel a horrible fear when the cataclysm of colors receded. I stood in the keep of a castle....dressed in a heap of rags, doing my best to wrest myself away from four burly knights.
