Books I’ve Edited: Mayan Lover by Wendy S. Hales
“Escaping the brutality of her past and following in her father’s archaeological footsteps, Gwen Kramer’s love of Mayan civilization uncovers more than artifacts when an ancient myth walks into her present, very real … and extremely sexy. Giving love a second chance isn’t Gwen’s greatest challenge, just her greatest fear.
“Arka’s destiny as Journeyer for the gods takes him on a 2600 year passage to find the Moon Goddess who’s walked in his dreams since childhood. However, the shock at finding her clad in khaki shorts, hiking boots and covered in dirt is nothing compared to the one he receives when his true destiny is revealed.
“When past and present collide, Gwen and Arka’s love may not survive the forces threatening to destroy their future …”
I always have a blast editing Wendy’s books. They move fast, they are very imaginative, they’re sexy, and they do the Wendy take on old, tired legends. This novella isn’t part of her “Immortal Becoming” series. It’s a time-travel book in which Gwen and Arka are meant for each other. Except they were born 2,600 years apart. You might never look at khaki shorts and dusty archaeological sites the same way again. It’s a great beach book.
