IT'S A RACE AGAINST TIME.
In Remembrance, Lizzie and Drew changed the course of fate so they could be together.
In Vengeance, Chelsea set fate back on its original, deadly path.
Now, strange things keep happening to Lizzie. Things that are omens of darkness to come. A curse has doomed her to die an early death, just as she did in her past life. To make things worse, even if she can figure out who cast the curse, it's irreversible. There's only one option left for her to save herself. It's crazier than anything she's heard yet, and to do it, she'll need Drew and Chelsea's help.
Because to make things right, they must go back to when it all began…

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England ... but she doesn't know it yet.
Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school at the beginning of the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can't stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can't she get him out of her mind?
Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, fighting fate isn't going to be easy.
How far would you go to get revenge?
When Chelsea Givens discovered that her ex-boyfriend Drew dumped her to be with her former best friend Lizzie, she'd never felt so betrayed in her life. Then her new friend Shannon tells her she can help set things right. Chelsea's willing to listen, but what Shannon wants her to believe -- that she shared a past life with Drew -- is impossible. And what she wants her to do to get him back … well, it's downright crazy.
Could Shannon be telling the truth? And if she is, what lengths will Chelsea go if it means making Lizzie pay?
Find out in Vengeance, the second part of the Transcend Time Saga.
*Vengeance is the short story that bridges the events in Remembrance and the final novel in the Saga.
"The combination of time travel, magic, and love makes Timeless an unforgettable page turner!"
For Those About to Read
"Timeless had great twists, particularly towards the end. For something inspired by a Taylor Swift song, Michelle has come up with a great series!"
Addiction to Words Reviews
"Just when I think I know what to expect, Michelle throws me a curveball! It was spectacular. And marvelous. And a little bit daring, which is what makes Timeless stand out so much!"
Sparkles and Lightning (That's me! xx)
"If you were to take a dash of Romeo and Juliet, a handful of Pride and Prejudice, and a pinch of a Disney fairytale, you'd probably come up with Remembrance!"
Gilbert & Gomez
"I enjoyed everything about Remembrance. The dialogue was fantastic, the pace moved perfectly, the romance was charming, and the story was brilliant!"
Michelle Madow was inspired to write Remembrance after seeing Taylor Swift's "Love Story" music video while a junior at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. The song and video gave her the story idea about a high school girl reincarnated from Regency Era, England. She handed in the first chapter as a homework assignment for class, and when her teacher and classmates wanted her to continue writing, she decided to go for it. By the end of the school year, her first novel was completed!
Michelle graduated from the Park School of Baltimore in 2005, where she always took two English classes each semester. She graduated from Rollins College in 2010, cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in English. At Rollins she was a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and a member of the International English Honor Society Sigma Tau Delta.
She received the Charles Hyde Pratt Award for Excellence in Creative Writing in 2010.

Michelle lives in Florida, where she is hard at work writing more novels for young adults.
Lizzie’s Top Ten Favorite Love Stories
I’m so happy to be here today talking about Lizzie’s top ten favorite love stories! Romance is Lizzie’s favorite genre to read or watch, so this is a perfect top ten for her!
1) Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – Lizzie and Mr. Darcy (Book, the BBC miniseries, and the 2005 movie)
This is Lizzie’s favorite love story of all time, because it’s the one she relates to the most. She saw the movie in middle school and fell in love with it, but didn’t read the book until it was assigned for her AP English class at the start of her junior year. She fell in love with the book. Realizing that a lot from the book was left out of the movie, she watched the BBC miniseries, since it is much more detailed. She loved that, too!
2) Twilight by Stephenie Meyer – Edward and Bella (book series)
Lizzie read the first Twilight book in 2005 when it came out, and she was hooked! She loves the romance between Bella and Edward, and is 100% Team Edward. But while she loves the books, she wasn’t a big fan of the movies.
3) The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa – Meghan and Ash (book series)
This is also one of Lizzie’s favorite book series. She enjoyed the first one, but for her the love story between Meghan and Ash bloomed in the second book of the series, The Iron Daughter. This series has an amazing love story with some heartbreaking moments!
4) Titanic – Jack and Rose (movie)
Because the love story in Titanic is heartbreaking and intense. It’s too bad Jack has to die at the end!
5) Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare – Clary and Jace (book series)
The love between Clary and Jace is so intense in this book, because it’s forbidden and yet the reader is rooting for them anyway! Hopefully the movie will be a good representation of the book. Luckily, Lizzie discovered this series over the summer, so she was able to read them straight through.
6) Moulin Rouge – Christian and Satine (movie)
Lizzie and Chelsea watch this movie together all the time when they have sleepovers. The music is wonderful, as is the love story. If only Satine didn’t die at the end!
7) Downton Abbey – Mary and Matthew (TV series)
Lizzie loves this television series, and watched it in a marathon over the summer. The love story between Mary and Matthew takes a long time to grow, but they eventually get past all their troubles to be together. Lizzie’s favorite episode is the Christmas special, when Matthew finally proposes to Mary, and she says yes.
8) The Vampire Diaries – Elena and Damon (TV series)
Lizzie has read the original four books, but she prefers the television series. She wishes Elena would let things happen with Damon, though, instead of continuously pining for Stefan. (And vampire Elena ROCKS.)
9) William and Kate (Real Life Love Story)
No one said this top ten list had to be fiction! Lizzie adores William and Kate’s love story, and loved watching the royal wedding on TV. It’s a fairy tale come to life.
10) The OC – Ryan and Marissa AND Seth and Summer (TV series)
Lizzie and Drew have been watching the DVD’s of The OC together, and Lizzie is loving it! She especially loves the first episode, when Ryan and Marissa first meet.
