Teaser Tuesday: Where the Rain is Made

Today I'm sharing a teaser from a promising romance I'm getting ready to read for the Romantic Historical Fiction Lovers Blog. I snapped this one up right away because I couldn't resist the premise: Time travel, but this time it's the hero who falls back in time, and he falls into the American West, where he becomes a Cheyenne warrior. I've been following Keta Diablo for a long time on Twitter, but this is the first chance I've gotten to read her, and I can't wait till the workday is over so I can start this tonight!

Here's the first line from page 1:

Ethan Gray rose from his dingy cot for the tenth time and paced the small area of his jail cell. He’d survived another night.

I'm sharing the description too, because it sounds sooo good!

A decadent-looking savage has captured Francesca DuVall and her brother, Marsh. Now she must spend every waking moment planning an escape. She didn’t count on the powerful draw of desire interfering with her scheme in the camp of the brutal Cheyenne dog soldiers.

Ethan Gray is a curator at a national museum...most of the time, but when he travels through time to help his beloved People he becomes Meko, leader of the most revered and feared tribe of the plains. Although their worlds are decades apart Meko can’t resist the dark beauty he kidnapped during a raid. He has many battles to fight but none he wants to win more than the one that will capture Cesca’s heart forever.

From the windswept plains of Colorado and the harsh life of a Dog Soldier to the placid life of a curator their love was fueled by passion and kindled by destiny.

  1. Have never heard of this author, and it's been ages since I read a time travel. I hope you enjoy the book, Jenny! My teaser: The Nail Knot

    Here's my Tuesday teaser/intro:

  6. This definitely sounds different from anything I've read before. I hope you enjoy it!

  7. Hello everyone and lovely blog! Where have you been - lol - or where have I been?

    My sincere thanks for posting a teaser on WHERE THE RAIN IS MADE! Wow, didn't know the book would on your site today. I'll be sure to tweet about it.

    I think you'll enjoy the novel - crossing fingers. It IS a different concept. I have a strong affinity when it comes to the Native tribes and how they were treated by the US Government in the Old West. The life of a very courageous, loving people, the Cheyenne and their renowned Dog Soldiers, is tragic and heart-rendering. But ... this book isn't all about history - no, it's a romance, a love story between a time wanderer and white captive. Mystical and paranormal abound in the story, not just time travel. Where The Rain Is Made was nominated for a BOOKIE AWARD by Authors After Dark and has received over 25 Five Star reviews. I couldn't have been more pleased to hear they loved it!

    Again, my humble thanks for featuring my book. Have a great week, everyone!

    Namaste, Keta Diablo
