eBook Description: Mason had always been concerned about his sister's job as a physicist at Area 51, and when she calls him in the night and begs him to meet her, he doesn't hesitate. Patricia has been given a special, top-secret assignment--to discover a code that will activate the time machine left behind by the aliens. Patricia has discovered the right combination, but knowing the destructive power a time machine can have if placed in the wrong hands, she steals the device and tells Mason to dispose of it.
Mason heads out in the night to bury the machine in the desert, only to realize he's being followed. And soon he finds himself transported to 16th-Century London, where he discovers there are others waiting for his arrival.
Lewis Langley, the son of a nobleman, is completely unaware of his connection to the alien race who invented the time machine, but his grandfather isn't. And when Lewis meets Mason, the alluring man from the future, it will change his entire life.
A love that crosses centuries, ripped apart by time...Lewis is Mason's cherished displacement, even when true love is worlds away...

"...From the first page, this story captured my attention. The characters and their deep love for each other, the honor they both show in accepting their fate, and the final resolution was what made this story very special to me. Like most of D. J.'s stories, this is one that takes a look at human nature in all its different incarnations and expressions. I totally loved it, even though I spent the last third of it trying to read through a flood of tears. It was worth hanging on!"--Serena Yates, Queer Magazine Online
"A Recommended Read!...5 Angels!...An extraordinary story spanning two lifetimes, past and present, that are blended into one beautiful love story. This incredible story is one that will stay on my favorites list and shouldn't be missed!"--Teresa, Fallen Angel Reviews
As soon as the sun began to go down, Lewis slipped out of the house and rode into London on his horse. It was going to be dark soon, and he hoped to reach the city before sundown. He also hoped that Mason would be there waiting for him. Maybe Mason hadn't taken his offer seriously; maybe he was afraid.
The streets were dark when he arrived. He got off his horse and walked, thinking he should hire a boy to lead him with a lantern. But he was feeling rather reckless tonight. Suddenly he spotted a lone figure at the end of the road, standing in front of the butcher's stall.
"Mason?" he called uncertainly.
The figure walked toward him. "Lord Langley."
"Lewis," he said breathlessly. They were both face to face now. Mason was exactly as he imagined, blond, with the face of an angel. "I forgot the chessboard," he muttered, his gaze never leaving Mason's face.
"That's all right," Mason replied, his gaze fixed on Lewis as well. "I got the mud off my face."
Lewis smiled. "I see that." There was something about Mason, something almost surreal. "Who are you? Are you an angel?"
"What ... what do you mean?" Mason laughed. "I'm hardly an angel."
"You're like a dream."
Mason laughed again. "Have you been drinking?"
"No." Lewis also laughed. "Do I seem drunk?"
"No. Where do you want ... I mean, where--"
"Anywhere. It doesn't matter where we go." And he meant that. As long as Mason kept looking at him like that, the place was without importance.
