'I absolutely loved this book; in fact, I couldn't put it down. Jen Minkman has written a captivating story that will grab your attention and touch your heart.' - 5-star review from Bitten By Books


'Shadow of Time is my favorite paranormal romance ever!' - Becca Mills, author of urban fantasy Nolander


'I read a lot of books in this genre, but this has got to be one of the most original stories I've come across in a long time. It starts out a bit generic, but then things start to get interesting. The author has clearly done SO much research in order to make the world of the Navajo believable in this book, it is amazing. I loved the romance in this book, but also the rich history and sense of spirituality in the story. Shadow of Time has interesting and relatable characters, a gripping mystery, and a wealth of information about the Navajos and Native Americans. Don't miss this book if you like paranormal romance, get it NOW!' - Reader Review Barnes & Nobles


All Hannah needs is a nice and quiet vacation after her first year of teaching French at a high school. She joins her brother Ben for the summer in their mom’s log cabin in Arizona. There, she meets Josh again, Ben’s childhood friend from the Navajo reservation. The little boy from the rez has grown up fast, and Hannah can’t help but feeling more for him than just friendship. 

But fate apparently has something else in store for her. And it’s not peace and quiet. Night after night, Hannah is plagued by strange nightmares about the past of Navajo Nation and terrifying shadows chasing her. They seem to come closer – and why is Josh always present in her dreams? 

Sometimes, the past has a way of catching up with you.
