Title: Rise Like A Phoenix (The Acadian Secret: Book 3)


Author: Tammy Lowe


Genre: Young Adult/Time Travel


Book Blurb:


When Elisabeth London travels back in time to the 14th century, she is transported to a world straight out of the pages of a fairy-tale. Swept away by the adventure and romance, Elisabeth follows her heart—and Aquarius—into this whole new world.

But Elisabeth soon learns her father has discovered where (or rather when) she is. He’s sent a bounty-hunter to bring her home. Although a million questions buzz through her mind, there’s one thing she’s certain of—her parents will never let her hang out in the 14th century with a guy she met in Ancient Rome.

With her heart at stake, can Elisabeth avoid the bounty-hunter and find a way to stay in this fairy-tale world?

Or is her love-life about to take a rather grim twist?

Find out in Elisabeth London’s timeless story of love, danger, and adventure.




When Crooked Nose punched, David blocked. Then, with a quick elbow movement, he smacked the man’s face with the end of the rope before stepping back. The effect was rather comical.


Crooked threw another punch.


David pounced, wrapping the rope around the man’s wrist. Yanking the tied arm back made him double over. His eyes turned cold and hard. “Who sent you?”


The man’s breath sawed in and out. “You’ve no idea whose daughter you’ve run away with, do you?”


He pulled Crooked’s arm straight back some more. “Enlighten me.”


“Make her tell you,” he hissed.


David swallowed a lump in his throat. “She hides nothing from me.” He then snapped the man’s arm at the elbow, and grabbed Elisabeth’s hand, pulling her to a run.


Her breath hitched, and the colorful bouquet of wildflowers dropped.


“By the gods!” David led the way through a field of grazing sheep, toward a grove of trees. “Your father is here?”


“No…” She shook her head in denial. “No, he can’t be…can he?”


“You tell me!”


Elisabeth let out an uncontrollable whimper.


If Dad found out she was time-traveling—she was so grounded.

Author Biography:


An adventurer at heart, Tammy has explored ruins in Rome, Pompeii, and Istanbul (Constantinople) with historians and archaeologists.

She’s slept in the tower of a 15th century castle in Scotland, climbed down the cramped tunnels of Egyptian pyramids, scaled the Sydney Harbour Bridge, sailed on a tiny raft down the Yulong River in rural China, dined at a Bedouin camp in the Arabian Desert, and escaped from head-hunters in the South Pacific.

I suppose one could say her own childhood wish of time traveling adventures came true…in a roundabout way.
