“If you love the magic of romance and the romance of magic, this is a book for you.”
Kenneth Weene, author

Janelle’s Time is the story of the great love between a New Hampshire farmer’s daughter and the younger son of an English Duke.

From her father’s accidental death to the birth of twin daughters, with countless adventures in between Janelle makes it difficult for Richard to keep her safe.

Unaware of Janelle’s maternal-line powers, the couple time-travel to 14th century England, where they meet Richard’s ancestors – and discover some startling truths about his aristocratic family.

Logan Conor, the Scots Duke of Muileach, crashes Richard and Janelle’s wedding, bent on revenge for the death of his beloved Minuet in Paris, but finds a new love instead.

On their wedding trip to England, Nick, Richard’s childhood friend, and now a madman who killed his parents to inherit, attempts to kidnap Janelle – twice – and tries to kill Richard and his oldest brother.

Later, on the way to London, after being mugged and losing his memory, Richard betrays Janelle who then strands him in England. After months on a leaky ship that stopped at every dock along the way, Richard arrives home in New Hampshire, but fate separates them again – and he misses the birth of his son. Will they ever make a life together?

Filled with unexpected twists and turns, their love story spans two continents, and hundreds of years. But, can their love survive their very different backgrounds and the endless obstacles life throws at them?

Follow the adventures – and misadventures – of Richard and Janelle as they go from strangers, to lovers, to husband and wife, to parents, while dealing with a world quite different from yours and mine.

My thoughts about “Janelle’s Time”
Donna Lawrence, Book Lovers Paradise – 5 Stars
Wonderfully unique and exciting! 

Janelle’s Time is a story of love, tragedy, time travel and much more. It is the start of what promises to be a fascinating series.

The characters are rich and engaging. The storyline, unique and entertaining. You will not want to put this book down!

Oh, and the wedding scene between Richard and Janelle—I think I fell in love with Logan! Just amazing.

You will experience every emotional twist on the roller coaster between times with this book! Will Richard and Janelle ever get together?

Ultimately, it is a story of love, pure and simple. I’m looking forward with great anticipation for Moria’s Time, book two in the series.


Janelle’s Time is a beautifully written talk of mystical adventures set in the 1800s in New Hampshire and England – a love story of great proportions. The author has created a winning, fictional historical piece of literature using well-defined characters. The plot is unique and fast moving as well. I rather enjoyed the dialogue between the characters, as it flowed with ease and believability ….

Upon her father’s death, the young maiden inherits a world of wealth in which she is clearly not prepared for. Fate steps in, and she meets the love of her life, Richard Grayson, youngest son of an English Duke – the beginning of a suspenseful and romantic tale ….
This tale is more than a love story; it is a story of determination and the willingness to endure whatever obstacles ‘one’ must in order for love to prevail.

Janelle’s Time is written to include many colorful characters – all of which undertake a dramatic role. I sincerely look forward to reading more adventures created in this series by this author. I give the author and her work five historical stars for this entertaining read!

Ms. Cheser has created a wonderfully epic start to a new series and one that I will look forward to reading in its entirety. Janelle’s Time starts off with a bit of tragedy, but quickly moves forward and is layered with mysteriousness, happiness and intrigue. This story sweeps the reader of their feet and keeps them hooked until the end. It’s rich in its historical detail and the characters are complex and real-to-life. I loved each page turn as it each turn brought something new to the table.

Janelle LeDuc is a young lady who has recently lost her father to a tragic tree-felling accident. Left alone on the farm with the family help, she nearly suffers from deep depression, despite the fact that she’s now a wealthy young woman. When she sets out to visit her father’s grave, she’s rescued there by a neighbor, Englishman Richard Grayson. Little did she know that life is about to change completely for her.

Despite “knowing” of Ms. LeDuc for 3 years, Richard Grayson has finally gotten the chance to show his interest in her after helping her home. Time spent together takes on a new meaning for him, especially when a twist of fate takes them on a time-traveling adventure to his homeland and his childhood home……500 years before he knew it. When he realizes that the beautiful Janelle is key to this time-travel, his already fond feelings for her, grow to a blossoming love.

But, after they marry, the fates aren’t so nice to them, as mysterious things happen, and their marriage is at risk. Can their love for each other over come all time and happenings? Can their passionate love be enough to withhold all else?

Reading their story, and learning about their history was a wonderful time for me. Though I wish the ending was a little different! It’s got me wanting the next book right now, not later . All in all, this is a ‘4 Book’ worthy story and one that I am happy to have read. With amazingly created secondary characters and a time-traveling plot line that will expand beautifully into the next books, Ms. Cheser has gained a life-long fan in me. I can’t wait for book 2, ‘Moria’s Time,’ to learn about the Grayson’s children and more of the awesome characters!
