Now, for a little about Stormy...

As a young girl in 19th century London, Stormy spent her time on the streets. Discarded by her family, she and the other Fenchurch Street urchins struggled every day just to get enough to eat. Then, Professor Gilly Green blew into town and swept Stormy and her brother Bacon away on a journey through time, to the 20th century where he raised them as his own.

Sixteen years later, she is grown and has embraced a life of adventure. She’s a time pirate, a modern day Robin Hood hell-bent on righting the wrongs in the world. When she embarks on yet another escapade through time, things don’t go according to plan. She finds herself in 1836 New England running an ill-conceived con on a madman in order to get back what is rightfully hers. Her adventure lands her in hot water as she winds up shackled to a bed in The Loony Duke of Leister’s torture chambers. Little does she know that the Loony Duke is someone from her past, who is going to turn her life upside down.

  11. Hi Christine,

    I read your chapter on this. I too like the lady above me just found about the title of this today also. Oh well I missed out on the book. I left you a comment after the chapter read.
    It was such a tease. I have to find out what Stormy doe's after she finds out who she's lusting after.
    Wishing you much success on this book.

    Teresa K.
