A New addendum to the Washington Irving Short Story, "the Legend of Sleepy Hallow."
   Now I wrote this story well before the Fox TV Series launched, so any similarities are purely coincidental.  But in the tale, Mike & Maggie, accidentally find a portal to the past and unwittingly unleash a monster upon 21st Century New York.  This story stays true to the original legend, but is loaded with far more pulse pounding action, breath taking suspense.   A thriller unlike any other, intertwined with strong emotional drama, a new, but strong growing love, and BLISTERING HOT Sex!  The 1st of the Trilogy, and for you lovers of the original, you will not be disappointed.

                                                      * * * * *

Stumbling onto a doorway between time periods, Maggie and Mike release a monster that threatens their lives and the balance of history.

Will they find the threat they loosed on the world in time? Will their lives, and tender new love, be the price they pay for their innocent curiosity?

Get comfortable (but don't forget to bar the windows!) with a fantastic story that weaves time travel, action, heartfelt romance, and sizzling sex!
