Remember how it feels to Fall in Love?
- Race against the clock through a dystopian nightmare.
- Climb naked into an untested time machine (carrying only a seashell and a promise).
- Wake up twenty years younger on a tropical beach, buck naked and mortally wounded, with your heart in your throat.
This is a journey of passion, loss, and redemption that will have your pulse galloping and your palms sweating, make you laugh out loud through your tears, and leave you flush with the sublime pleasure of being in the arms of the one you love.
If someone took everything you live for, how far would you go to get it back?
