Charming the Professor

(A book in the Charm Gates series)
A novel by

The Charm Gates have stood at The Court of Two Sisters for more than a century with no one guessing the secret they hold. Thanks to a jealous vindictive queen and a blackmailed alchemist, French "charm teacher" Madeline Charlebois's essence is encased inside the iron charm gates, until a grieving professor touches them during a storm and Madeline tumbles out, not in her own 19th century Spain, but in 21st century New Orleans.

Quantum physics Professor Grant Stewart has mourned his wife's death for the last three years. But he must move on for his young daughter's sake, the child who delights in terrorizing babysitters. Grant needs adequate childcare to pursue tenure at Tulane University. What he doesn't need is a French beauty believing nonsense like time-travel and voodoo, and whose very being is melting his heart.

Maddie may be without resources but she's good at making new friends, even if they are on the quirky side. She believes Professor Stewart can return her home, but first she must earn his trust to win his cooperation. Babysitting his daughter gives her both proximity, and love for the child. Will Grant be the key to returning to her time? Or will she, in turn, unlock his frozen heart? All they need is time and maybe a little voodoo...

This reverse time-travel romance comes from award winning author, Donna MacMeans. The story involves a necklace worn by Queen Isabella II called the Moor's Tear. You can find a fictional short story that explains the beginnings of the necklace, appropriately called "The Moor's Tear" available on Amazon. The short story is not necessary to understand the novel, but it does enrich the story - not a bad thing.

Donna has won the prestigious Golden Heart from Romance Writers of America and the Romantic Times critic's choice award for her previous books.
