Some people believe love transcends time and space. 

Neuropsychologist Dr. Contessa “Tess” Kenner isn’t one of them. She can explain in detail how lust and desire cause the limbic system to battle the prefrontal cortex over ethical decision making, but ask her about her aversion to relationships and she’s completely at a loss. It’s not due to lack of trying. She’s just never felt the need or the connection to put in the effort.

Free spirited artist Elena Jake, on the other hand, wants to fall in love with the woman of her dreams—quite literally. Ever since her youth, her nights have been consumed by a beautiful stranger, so much so, that no flesh and blood woman has ever been able to measure up. When the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur, she seeks guidance from her Native American roots.

Driven by strong astrological influences, the “powers that be” attempt an intervention between the two women. Their pasts and presents merge, sending Tess and Elena on an unimaginable journey, causing them both to question their sanities.

Will these two souls rediscover an epic love?
Or are they destined to forever be star-crossed lovers?

This romance is a must read for every true romantic who believes love knows no bounds.

I had the good fortune to ask SW Andersen a couple of questions about her new release!

Why did you want to write this book, specifically?
I wrote this book because the idea of reincarnation has always fascinated me and the possibility that the ones we love could exist in our lives beyond this lifetime fills me with a sense of peace and hope. Though I had always denied it, writing this one cements the fact that I am indeed a romantic at heart.

What do you like best about it?
The journey of the four women and how it all comes together, giving us hope that love will always find a way, even when it’s a struggle.

Can you tell the readers something about This Time that they might not know just from reading the book?
The idea that our past lives would influence our current life was a major driver for the story. The details in look and behavior between the characters past and present carry some similarities, but also stark contrasts, particularly in how they carry themselves and live their lives. If you pay attention to the nuances, you can see the effects in Tess and Elena. Also, most of the major events in their lives revolve around actual total solar eclipses where they lived. A good bit of time was spent working those out with the help of the NASA site.

In ten words or less, tell us why we should buy this book?
A feel good read where love transcends time and space

SW Andersen

S.W. Andersen writes sapphic romances where love knows no bounds.

Her debut novel, “Somewhere Between Love and Justice,” received such rave reviews as “A Riveting Read” and “UNPUTDOWNABLE.” “The Price of Payback,” is the sequel that has been called “A fantastic follow up” and “A great story about family.” “Love By Design” earned reviews such as “An exceptionally well written journey into self-discovery” and “A beautifully written love story” that gave readers “the feels.”

Her latest, “This Time,” is a romance that revolves around past lives reunited.

From old west gunslingers to modern day romance, S.W. offers a variety of romantic adventures, including the Amazon best selling lesbian romances, “Love By Design,” and “Switchback.”

Having been raised by her mother, a strong female character in her own right, she has always been attracted to stories that depicted independent, determined, capable women. A romantic at heart, her characters are rooted in hope and perseverance. She has spent a large part of her life around horses and rodeos and has always had an affinity for the cowgirl lifestyle. Her love of the mountains, westerns and stories involving strong female characters were the driving forces behind the Sarah Sawyer series.

When she isn’t working or writing, she enjoys outdoor activities and traveling with her wife, Dianna. They share their ten acres in rural Florida with a rambunctious crew of two dogs, four cats and two horses.
