About the Book

Crossing In Time (Between Two Evils, #1)Crossing In Time by D. L. Orton

Crossing In Time: The 1st Disaster (Between Two Evils, #1)

When offered a one-way trip to the past, Isabel sacrifices everything for a chance to change the rapidly deteriorating present–and see her murdered lover one last time. When she arrives twenty years in the past, buck naked and mortally wounded, she has 24 hours to convince a stunned but enraptured nineteen-year-old to change their future. Definitely easier said than done, as success means losing him to a brainy, smart-mouthed bombshell (her younger self), and that’s a heart breaker, save the world or not.

This offbeat tale is about falling madly in love when one is too cynical for such things, letting go of pessimism when it’s the last life jacket on a sinking ship, and racing against the clock when one doesn’t have the proper footwear. It’s a coming-of-age story for old fogeys, a how-to-make-love guide for diehard celibates, and a laugh-out-loud tragedy with a hopeful twist.

Love conquers all. (Unfortunately, it’s not going to be enough.)

From the Author

Crossing In Time is a character-driven work of commercial fiction (because if I said it’s non-fiction you wouldn’t believe me. See how difficult this is going to be?)

The book is a genre-defying love story told from alternating first-person points of view. Think The Time Traveler’s Wife meets Men Are From Mars on The Road with a nod to Richard K. Morgan for good sex (in his fiction), a curtsy to Madeleine L’Engle for wrinkles (in time), and a tail wag to Connie Willis and Margaret Atwood (because we should all wag more and bark less).

Fall into this action-packed, darkly comedic, science fiction love story and be prepared for some iffy bowling, a mysterious metal artifact, and a very clever dog (some sex, some swearing, some violence, but no vampires and absolutely no ditzes.)

Oh, and every word is true.


From the Inside Flap

CROSSING IN TIME is a darkly comedic, literary, erotic, science fiction, coming-of-age, romantic, action-packed work of commercial fiction with some iffy bowling, a mysterious metal artifact from the future, and a very clever dog (no vampires).

Love • Peril • Sex • Bowling • Fall in Love!

They say that love transcends time–but what if your lover dies, and you’re given the chance to go back in time to meet his much-younger twin? She agrees to go, knowing it will kill her in a matter of days, because it gives her one last chance to be with the man she loves — and she’s supposed to save the world while she’s at it. Go figure.
