Angela Hays and LOVE'S BATTLE!

Fellow Wild Rose Press author Angela Hays is taking over my blog today to talk about time travel and her time traveling romance LOVE'S BATTLE. Take it away, Angela!

If you could live in any period of time, which one would you choose?

While writing Love’s Battle, I had to choose multiple time periods for my characters to live among. Reincarnated life after life to bring lovers together, their lifeline stretches across twelve hundred years.

From Scotland in the middle 800’s to Norway during the 10th century, on to Belgium, Russia, and Tunisia, before bringing them to the USA in the 17th century for the first time, then back to Spain, and  sending them once again back to America. The three women were exposed to various cultures, beliefs, and traditions, given the access to a plethora of different ways of life and the skills to conquer each one, many of which stick with them no matter what life they’re living in.

Faith is fond of weaving, Hope enjoys using her knowledge of gems, and Love, while she’s fond of swordplay, takes pride in reminding today’s citizens of the many ancestors who came before them and the contributions they made to the world.

If you were to ask them what life they could relive again, I’m confident they would each answer differently.

Faith, no doubt would chose life in Norway as a Viking. Hope, life number seven in Tunisia- it’s the last time she was truly happy. Love, she wouldn’t give you a straight answer. Her next life is always her favorite. She lives for the unknown and finding out what secrets it holds.

While I love modern technology, medicine, and electricity, I’d like to try living during the Victorian Era in England. But only if I can have a fat purse and equally fat closet full of awesome clothes!

If you could live in any time period, which would you chose?

“If love isn’t worth fighting for, what is?”


Love Howard has more than a knack for matchmaking. Born from a forbidden passion and a twelve-hundred-year-old promise, she and her sisters can literally see true love. And while Love has no problem bringing other couples together, her own romantic life could use a little help.

Danton DeAngelo has always been well grounded in reality. So it throws him for no small loop when the woman he’s fallen for believes that she’s been reincarnated eleven times and can actually see true love.

Now Danton is faced with the biggest decision of his life. Accept Love for who she really is, or walk away from her forever.


“That was close,” I breathed when we were outside, an entire building between myself and the best man.

“It’s about to get even closer.” Faith smiled, making me instantly wary. I knew what was coming. She’d seen it. They both had.

“What do you mean?” I asked, playing dumb.

“Look at him again, and you tell us,” Hope challenged.

Dutifully I opened the door. Keeping to the shadows, I stepped inside, just enough to get another look at Danton DeAngelo. There he was laughing with his friends, what a beautiful sight. Male perfection bathed in the same powder blue light that all souls gave off when they were destined to be together. Blowing out a breath, I closed the door and faced my sisters.

“He’s blue.”

“He’s not the only one, honey.” Hope smiled, holding out a compact mirror she had pulled from her purse.

Snatching it from her, I peered into the reflecting glass. There was my image, the one I’d spent twenty five years looking at, the one I saw mirrored in the face of my sisters. Except, unlike yesterday, I could now see a telltale blue glow around my face. Faint at first but growing stronger with every second. Closing the compact I could see the glow encompassing my hands. I looked down and around. Like a bad rash, it was all over me.

“I’m blue!” I declared, pointing out the obvious.

“True blue, true love. YOU are the future Mrs.Danton DeAngelo.” Hope gloated taking her compact back.

“Ah damn!” I whined.
