What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

I don’t know what I expected to happen when I swallowed the little golden pill, but passing out and waking up in another century was not a side-effect I was prepared for.

Neither was being hauled out of the Thames sputtering and shivering by a man with only half a face and being taken back to his home. Or finding that he lived with three other equally mysterious and gorgeous men.

They weren’t exactly quick to welcome me, and something about them isn’t right. Not entirely… human.

I was on the cusp of figuring it out when I woke up. Back in the present. At first, I chalked it all up to a bad trip, but I’ve never been good at letting sleeping dogs lie.

In my hunt for answers and the dealer who can get me more of the strange drug, I’ll find the truth. Whether I’m ready to hear it or not. And then there will be no turning back.

Note from The Publisher

Chasing Time is a new reverse harem paranormal time travel romance from bestselling authors, Elena Lawson and Katie May. Fall into another era in this RH series filled with swoon-worthy men, mystery, and magic. Fans of Diana Gabaldon and Deborah Harkness will DEVOUR it!

Thoughts on Chasing Time

4.5 rounded up

Katie May is quickly becoming a ‘one click but’ author for me. Add in Elena Lawson and this book becomes even better.

I love time travel novels, but it is so hard to do them right. This one offers up a glimpse of obvious differences, a new world and a host of possibilities. Can’t wait for book 2!

Favorite Line

Too many years spent fortifying yourself against potential attackers didn’t just callous your palms—it calloused something inside you, too. (7%)


  • Well written.
  • She’s snarky and tough, but still human and approachable.
  • ALL the guys! I love them! Even for an intro novel, that is set over just a few days, we STILL get a good feel for who they are, and how different they really are from each other. In many RH novels, the guys kinda blend together… not here. SOOO different.


  • Foreshadowing drops for book 2 feel a bit blatant, hope that gets twisted a touch for a surprise.

Fantastic Book with a solid premise, lively characters and a metaplot that is weaves through the narrative as deftly as the romance blossoms. I would highly recommend this as a ‘one-click’ buy, or to be added to your TBR queue today. Free on KU!
