Who is Siaylah? Siaylah is a feisty, 25-year-old time traveler with supernatural powers.
Who is Nicholas Alastair? Nicholas "Nick" Alastair is tall, blond, and handsome, and a gamblin' man of the late 1800's who's, consequently, also the fastest gun in the Western Hemisphere.
Who is Minamon? He's an Egyptian warrior, and uncle of Pharaoh Seti I, father of the now famous Pharaoh Ramses II. He's not a kind man, but he's got it bad for Siaylah - much to her chagrin!
Who is Ramses II? Ramses is the most famous Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, and Siaylah's close friend and ally.
Through Time Indefinite is a timeless romance . . .
Siaylah (pronounced See-ay-lah) Valinski is a time traveler with supernatural powers. She's sent on missions by the unseen Powers That Be to protect great, historical figures when events surrounding them threaten their premature demise.
After a mission in ancient Egypt, where she saves the life of one of ancient Egypt's most influential and greatest Pharaohs of all time, Ramses II, she's transported to an era she prefers the least: late 1800's America.
She's dropped right smack in the middle of the boudoir of a saloon's "Lady of the Night" where she meets Nicholas Alastair, a handsome, sexy gunfighter and incorrigible gambler. Things get complicated when he mistakenly believes she's the woman he has paid for to spend the night with.
Despite their first, then second, confusing and uncomfortable encounters, they learn the truth about destiny, the undying soul, the ever-changing fabric of time, and that the power of true love really does transcend all space and time.

A cute, quick time travel romance with an erotic flare.
Siaylah is a time traveler that is sent throughout time in order to protect great historical figures so they can influence history however they are intended to. After finishing her mission in Egypt, she is deposited in an 1800s, Wild West Brothel. There she meets Nick, a gun-slinging gambler.
Though their first encounters are confusing for both, the chemistry and attraction are instantaneous between Siaylah and Nick. The romance between the pair is believable and romantic (not to mention pretty scorching).
The story moves pretty quickly, but the writing is excellent so you're not left confused at any moment. Overall, this is an excellent, quick read and I look forward to more works from Ms. Shields.

An entertaining tale of time travel with a wrinkle or two!
A gal, Siaylah, from 2005 is chosen by The Powers That Be (TPTB) to travel through time to ensure history’s prominent figures are kept out of harm’s way. The story opens with Siaylah in ancient Egypt protecting Ramses II. Once her task is completed there, TPTB snatch her up and deposits her in the American Wild, Wild West – circa late 1800’s. The period of time she despises most.
“No, no, no. I need my indoor plumbing! Even ancient Rome had indoor plumbing for chrissakes! I can’t LIVE without running water and indoor plumbing.”
Apparently, TPTB were asleep at the wheel this time; as Siaylah is still wearing the white tunic. They didn’t change her clothes from her days in ancient Egypt. And they didn’t “whisper” the knowledge she needed for the era. Enter Nick. Who believes Siaylah is the “professional lady” he has just bought and paid for. The misunderstanding that ensues between Siaylah and Nick lead to passion and a dangerous showdown.
TPTB never make an appearance or explain their actions. That wasn’t a problem as the story is well written. The sex scenes involving Nick and Siaylah are erotic as well as romantic. I really felt the connection between these two. One note though. At the beginning of the story, there is a scene between an Egyptian warrior and a harem girl that is somewhat coarse. Nonetheless, it plays an essential part in the tale. Nick is the consummate alpha cowboy. And don’t be dissuaded by the book cover. It is self-explanatory once you have read the tome. I really enjoyed reading THROUGH TIME INDEFINITE, and I look forward to what Ms. Shields will offer in the future as she continues to mature as an author.

Very nice story, March 14, 2011
This review is from: Through Time Indefinite (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this story. It is different from other time travelling stories I have read. I wish the story was longer because I found her characters to be delightful and I really wanted to know more about them. Perhaps I just didn't want the story to end where it did. There were a couple of events in the story that were a bit questionable to me, but perhaps I just need to re-read so that I can find the explanation. That being said, it is still a very nice story. I hope to see more of her stories published.
I first encountered the stories of Catharina Shields through a website that publishes free stories. She is one of my favorites. I've come to know her writing style through several stories she's put out on the website. Her stories are always very imaginative, well written and her characters endearing. I hope more of her stories make it on Amazon Kindle.
