A new, dark and ruthless enemy emerges to vex the time travelers…

Alannah’s family has always lurched from crisis to crisis, every time their secret life as time travelers and vampires clashes with the normal, human world. But Alannah has managed to stay unnoticed, living her uneventful and very human life to the hilt. Trouble doesn’t visit her for she has no extraordinary time traveling talents the way her siblings do. She is utterly average.

Kit McDonald thinks otherwise. He has been drawn to Alannah from the moment he met her, but the woman seems to barely recognize him. Given her unusual and highly interesting family, he can understand that. He’s just a park warden, with a checkered history and a remote and disinterested family of his own.

But when Alannah is confronted by a deadly, ruthless new enemy, it is Kit who steps in to help. As neither a time traveler, nor a vampire, his help is unique and oddly effective and the two find themselves on the run in the Canadian wilderness, with only each other for company….

A top Series for Me - Continues to Delight!!

Every story in this series confirms this as a top-3 of all time for me. We are now reading "second generation" events, but when times get tough all are available to assist. There is a new wrinkle in the time-travel set and Alannah has been kidnapped.

Fortunately, a family friend Kit determines something is amiss and is able to track her down with a few hints from her twin Aran. He does not know the secrets of the family but has deduced they have some. He has his own skillset, which is key to getting away, and staying away from the current threat.

Original, intricate, all about relationships, family, history and a world where most will never tread. Stunning.

Complex and captivating!

I LOVE this series!!! I feel like I've been swept up in a whirlpool of action and emotion whilst loving every minute of it.

I'm reading this series as they are newly released so this book has been anticipated and well worth the wait. Each book in the series adds delicious layers to the complex story of a wonderful 'family' of vampires and time travellers whom I have come to love.
Despite a break between books I was immediately drawn deeply back into their world and thrown into the latest adventures and romance. This story, like each of the preceding ones, is unique and unpredictable in it's storyline and treatment of the concepts and ways of time travel.
The story is concentrated on two delightful lead characters with the involvement of many more beloved ones from previous novels which adds familiarity to the escapade.

Tracy Cooper-Posey has a way of writing that I can't get enough of! Her attention to detail makes me feel like I'm part of the action while the fast pace of the story leaves me clamouring for more...next thing I know, the world as I know it has fallen away and I've escaped into the book for far longer than I'd intended....who needs sleep anyway?!?

I highly recommend this series and especially advocate reading all the books in order. Rich and critical information is shared in the novella and 'moments' novels between the main books so don't miss out on those either.

Loved it

I absolutely loved this addition to the Kiss across Time stories. It give an amazing look at the characters we have fallen in love with while meeting new characters. Alannah is very likable and im glad she got a story of her own. I lpved the storytelling and world building. I highly recommend this addition to the series.

Long Awaited and Much Loved!

Kiss across the universe. (#11 in the Kiss Time Series) was so good! I'm so enjoying catching up with Taylor, Brody and Veris and jumping (no pun intended) in as the next generation moves on in their adult lives. Great characters; angst and intrigue in Alannah’s life-Tracy had me from the 1st page! This is a great book in one of my favorite series and I loved every page of it. Can't wait for the next one!

Don’t miss out on the newest story in the Kiss Across Time series!

Born into a family of people with amazing talents, Alannah has been struggling to “find” herself. She has, however, long resigned herself to feeling rather ordinary - until someone from the future comes to abduct her and forces her out of her comfort zone.

As most of the family has traveled back in time for another matter, Alannah is astounded to find Kit coming to her rescue. As far as she knows, Kit is merely a friend of her parents who comes to the house every so often with a freshly caught salmon - how can he possibly help her?

Behind the quiet facade, Kit is a man with a violent past but with a few skills and secrets of his own - one of which is… being secretly attracted to Alannah, who has been working in Hollywood until recently.

Alannah and Kit find themselves on the run, their only hope of escape is to spend two days in the Canadian wilderness, traveling through the mountains to a safe location - they have no one else to depend on except each other. A lot can happen in two days…

This is another thrilling story in the Kiss Across Time series, one I highly recommend if you enjoy romance, excitement, and the concept of time travel and all of its infinite possibilities. Enjoy the ride!

Your time-traveling-vampire fix

This is a long series that I have accompanied since the beginning and I must say that it is still fresh in its storytelling. The family that started with Veris, Brody, and Taylor now encompasses children, grandchildren, and friends from across the world and across time. It is a pleasure to read about their reunion and adventures and see them grow new attachments and relationships.
The 11th book in the series is the story of Allana, daughter of the original family all grown up and working in Hollywood at the beginning of the plot. But she is there hiding her identity and her powers in a time-consuming job that begins to feel wrong. She goes to Canada to be with her family for the celebration of Thanksgiving. There she sees Kit, a park warden, an outsider but also a friend who is starting to sense there is something different about them.
After the party, Allana is left house-sitting while her parents travel to the past in search of a rogue vampire and while she is there she is attacked by a powerful vampire that is interested in her jumping abilities. Kit comes to the rescue and Alanna can't help feeling the attraction but they are not safe yet...
Another action-packed romance with a time-traveling-vampire twist that should not be missed. Can't wait for the next one!

Kiss Across the Universe

This is the 11th book to the series and it's as great as the previous books to the series. The familiar characters are back with some new characters that just enhances the story even more. The story lines just get better and better. I can't wait for what is coming next in this series.

Kids growing up

I have read all of the Kiss across time books. It was so good that longtime friends are still around. This book is the next generation of travelers. Alannah gets her story. Alannah is tired of the Hollywood scene goes home to celebrate Thanksgiving. Kit McDonald is the park warden that has always loved Alannah from a far just hoping she notice him. Kit is invited to celebrate the holiday with the family. Kit always felt that something was different about the family.
When something happened to Alannah; Kit step up help find her. Alannah confessed what is different about her family.
I cannot wait until the next installment. Kudos to Tracy for knocking it out the park again.

Great Story in a Wonderful Series

Alannah goes home for Canadian Thanksgiving and then things get interesting. It was so nice to see all of these family members again; Veris, Brody, Alexander, Remi, Taylor, and Sydney. But this is Alannah’s story and a great one it is. Getting to know Kit better through this story is wonderful. I loved that it was set in Canada and featured that beautiful landscape. Another story in a series I really love to read.

Wonderful story

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this latest entry of the Kiss Across Time series. Familiar characters are back, along with some new ones to enliven the tale. The storyline is intriguing and quickly pulled me in. I was so enthralled that I didn't emerge until I had read the final sentence several hours later. It's great!

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this excellent book and can highly recommend it to anyone who loves great storytelling.

Excerpt

EXCERPT FROM KISS ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
COPYRIGHT © TRACY COOPER-POSEY 2023
ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Alannah slowed her pace when she saw that Kit McDonald was standing at the foot of the stairs. She wondered if he was waiting for her, for he was looking toward the kitchen, which made her uncertain. In all the times he had ever visited this house when she had been here, he’d never waited to speak to her before.

She moved down to the bottom step and Kit looked at her. His features didn’t shift from the stoical non-expression that was all she had ever seen on him.

Even standing on a step, her head only came up to close to even with his.

“Do you have children?” The question popped out of her without consideration.

Kit’s lips thinned a little. His black eyes considered her for a long moment. “Does it matter?”

Alannah thought that was a fair question, considering how rude hers had been. “Most fathers can’t help but boast about their perfect children. As you’re not pulling out photos to show me, I’m going to guess you’re not one.”

He didn’t quite shrug, but she saw his shoulders shift. “You’re not going to answer my question, then.”

“You didn’t answer mine,” she pointed out.

He didn’t respond to that. His glanced shifted toward the kitchen once more.

“Someone stuck you with kitchen chores,” she guessed.

He shook his head. “I thought I should help out.”

“Like you did with Jesse’s kids?”

“You’d rather I sit in a corner with a glass in my hand and watch everyone else rush around?” He didn’t sound affronted. Instead, he raised a single thick brow.

Alannah didn’t know what to say, and she always knew what to say. It was why CEOs of production companies wanted her to work for them. She always said the right thing to the right people.

But Kit McDonald had left her speechless, which was flat out ridiculous. It wasn’t as though he had insulted her. She’d been insulted by the best and knew a dozen ways to respond that didn’t strip away her pride, or piss off the star who’d insulted her.

Kit’s question was innocuous, yet she stood there casting about for something to say in response and couldn’t think of a damn thing. Instead, her gaze was caught by the raised brow. She realized she was studying his face, something she’d not really done before. Kit was her parents’ friend and she’d only ever been polite to him. She couldn’t remember talking to him directly before, except for the most superficial exchanges.

She was aware of time ticking on, while she didn’t-quite-gawp at him and failed to respond. He would think her rude, or worse, an obnoxious daughter.

But he took a half-step toward the bottom of the step she stood upon. Then he did something utterly unexpected.

He pressed the tip of one long finger between her brows. “There has been a crease there since you arrived.” His voice reverberated, low and musical. “It is still there now.”

His fingertip was warm and surprisingly soft. From the sleeve of his jacket, his scent rose. It wasn’t cologne or one of the obnoxious deodorants that men seemed to think were desirable. It was just nice, clean, male scent.

Alannah’s heart picked up speed. She grew aware of it beating in her chest, at the same time her gut seemed to fill with warmth.

She couldn’t take a step back. Only up the stairs. But before she could do that, he dropped his hand. He studied her with complete calm. His eyes were utterly black, but completely unlike Brody’s or Aran’s…or hers, she supposed.

“What happened to put that there?” he asked. “Something bad happened. You have the sort of strength to shrug off anything trivial.”

She stared at him, astonished. This time she wasn’t speechless. This time, she couldn’t pick from among the dozens of questions that occurred to her. She didn’t doubt him—the touch of his fingertip had drawn her attention to the taut muscles drawing her brows closer together, forming the furrow. She tried to let them relax, but they were tight with tension.

He’d noticed the furrow. A tiny detail, that he’d spotted the moment he’d seen her. And she had thought he was occupied with the babies and the toddlers.

Why are you watching me so closely? That was one of the questions she wanted to ask, but couldn’t, because she wasn’t sure he was watching her closely. Only, he’d noticed the furrow. Her mother had not.

Why do you think it’s any of your business? That was another question she couldn’t ask. It was too confrontational. She’d given up being confrontational and direct, years ago.

Why did you touch me? The whisper sighed through her. Her heart was still thudding heavily, too.

Why are you suddenly talking about real stuff, and not the weather or the salmon you just caught? For that had been the sum total of topics he’d ever spoken to her about.

Who are you? That question hovered on the tip of her tongue because she suddenly felt as though she didn’t know Kit at all. And she had thought she had him pegged. A homegrown Canadian. A boony who would never leave the mountains.

How do you know so much about me? That question was louder than all the rest, because his question had touched upon the hard knot in her chest and belly. And she could feel herself unravelling, all the control she had been using all week flying out the window.

Alannah didn’t make the decision to sit down. She just found herself perched upon one of the steps. She gripped her hands together tightly, as the scared little wail built in her. She kept her gaze upon her white knuckles, because she couldn’t look at him while she said it. She shouldn’t be saying it at all, but it emerged from her like a hot geyser, under high pressure because it had been building in her all week.

“I was fired last weekend.” Her voice was strained. “I figured I would find another job in a day or two. But it’s been a week, and no one is returning my calls.”

Silence.

Alannah kept her gaze on her hands, appalled at her lack of discretion. If she was going to tell anyone at all about this, it would have been Aran. Or her parents. But probably Aran, who understood so much without her having to explain.

What was she doing spilling her guts to a friend of the family she’d never had a decent conversation with before? “Sorry. It’s a downer subject.” This time, her voice was even more strained as she forced a peppy tone into it. “Forget I spoke.”

She saw his feet shift. Heavy work boots, with super grip soles, good for walking in snow.

“Are people not returning your calls because you’re tainted? Or are you not persisting enough to catch them?” Kit asked. His tone was neutral, lacking any judgement.

Alannah lifted her chin, surprised into looking at him because his questions were…direct. They spoke of insight and awareness, which was not something she’d expected a Canadian park warden to have about one of the most exclusive industries in the United States.

And his questions hit a raw nerve. She gripped her hands harder. “I think…” she said slowly, “…that I probably haven’t been trying as hard as I could to get hold of people.” It was the first time she had admitted it even to herself.

“Is Hollywood losing its charm for you?” Kit asked softly.

She realized she was looking into his eyes again. He had rested his hand on the end of the banister and his boots were a mere inch from the bottom step. He’d drawn closer.

“I didn’t think you knew that was where I lived,” Alannah replied.

“Your parents talk about you a lot,” Kit said.

“And you listened.”

“One does, when others are talking.” He shook his head. It was a tiny movement. “You’re trying to redirect me. That tells me I got close.”

She squeezed her hands together once more and felt her bones and tendons flex painfully. “Perhaps,” she prevaricated. “I’ll have to think about it.”

Kit straightened and moved away from the step. “Not something to decide quickly,” he said, his tone one of agreement. “It’s a pivot point.”

She grimaced. “As in, my whole life could change, depending on what I decide? No pressure. Thanks.”

And he smiled.

It was a startling expression, for she wasn’t sure she had ever seen him smile before. There was wry self-awareness in the expression, but that wasn’t the startling thing. It was the way his features shifted and changed. Light seemed to fill him. Good cheer, too. Even his eyes seemed to lighten. His smile revealed very white, even teeth, and drew attention to the sharp line of his jaw, which was shadowed by dark stubble.

Hollywood would love those high cheekbones. The errant thought flickered through her mind and was gone, while she recovered from the dazzling flash of a smile.

Something metallic and heavy crashed in the kitchen, and cries of dismay rose, making both of them jump.

It’s not just me who forgot where we were, Alannah thought. There was a dollop of satisfaction in that idea.
