The Temporal Man by Robert Appleton
No matter how hard you try, no matter how far you look, you will never find this shop.

It will find you.

Dreams, desires, the most outlandish wishes: all are for sale at Esther May Morrow's timeless antiques and sundries store, for the bargain price of...well, that would be telling. You'll have to see for yourself. So come on in. Don't be shy. Make her an offer. She never refuses anyone.
There's just one thing I should mention: each purchase comes with an absolute guarantee--no one who leaves her shop will be ever the same again.
You'll never see him coming; you won't want him to leave. For disillusioned young waitress Rebecca Green, the solution is Hold on tight  when a mysterious time-traveller arrives to literally turn her world upside down.

Sam Morrow is on the run. He's being pursued across time by four dangerous men from his past, including the deadliest swordsman in France. But now that he's found the girl of his dreams, it might just be time to stand and fight. Rebecca has an idea--to recruit the best swordsman in 18th century England--but will aristocratic Percy Torrance dare miss his wedding on Monday to help them?
Pulse-pounding duels, sea battles and a journey outside time itself punctuate this heart-stirring tale of romance on the edge. From the distant past to the far-flung future, there's no hiding from fate. Or love. Hold on tight to The Temporal Man.
