Alternate Universe, Erotic Romance, LGBTQ, Time Travel
Lured by rumors of a momentous invention, Agent Julian Blake steps into the New York Gate and emerges outside London. It is the same year, 1885, but an Earth parallel to his own. The two timelines are almost identical, but the slight variation is enough to threaten his mission as it includes an attitude toward same-sex attraction that is less than accepting.
He never expected that difference to pose a problem. Julian has an important mission to complete; a mission with far-reaching consequences not only across the alternate Earths, but into their pasts. For the momentous invention is a working time machine. And the inventor's assistant is a beautiful, auburn-haired young man named Daniel who causes Julian to disregard the Department rules he has lived by for so long.
But there are others interested in the professor's new invention, and when tragedy strikes, the professor's lovely assistant might just be the only person left alive with the knowledge to recreate the device.
Now Daniel is a target, and Julian is in a race to protect him and retrieve the knowledge of the time machine from those who would misuse it.
Contains: Explicit m/m sex

I love the idea of time travel—especially if I'm visiting another version of Earth.
Of course, things can get a little complicated with all the rules. Agent Julian Blake is well-versed in the hazards arising from traveling through dimensions and time. Like two of the same beings cannot exist in the same time and space. Or a traveler that goes to another world and changes events there, can affect that world, a parallel world or even possibly a new world.
Time travel sounds tricky and dangerous, doesn't it?
It is, and that's why Julian has accepted a mission to retrieve a machine Doctor Hadley has created. If the machine works, allowing time and dimension travel in the doctor's world, people from other worlds will want the machine to further their own purposes—without concern for the ramifications to others.
Julian discovers Doctor Hadley and his assistant Daniel Sinclair have successfully created such a machine, but have no understanding of the danger it poses to others and themselves. Julian spends time with the beautiful Daniel, and fights his growing attraction to the young man while trying to learn more about the machine and how to retrieve or destroy it.
Before Julian can complete his mission, things go terribly wrong. The machine is stolen, Daniel is kidnapped, and Julian has to find a way to rescue the man that's come to mean so much to him and a machine that could literally destroy worlds.
I thoroughly enjoyed THE PROFESSOR'S ASSISTANT. With an engaging storyline, plenty of action, and a romantic relationship that experiences the same struggles every new couple faces, I think other readers will be pleased as well.
