Take two old prospectors who have turned into ghosts, one modern day writer/photographer, and one handsome, if somewhat absent-minded mine owner and mix them up with an explosion gone awry in the Nevada mining town of Peavine. Add to that a time difference of over 130 years, and the chances for romance, mishaps and mayhem are as abundant as Nevada Gold.
Zeke and Lucky, two prospectors, who have been floating around the ghost town of Peavine since they died in 1870, have been charged with finding a way to undo the accident that killed their friend, Jesse Cole. When they spy Ellie wandering around Peavine, they realize the time has come, because she looks exactly like Jesse’s girlfriend, Elizabeth. They manage to transport Ellie back in time to 1870 prior to the accident, but then find they must act as her guides and mentors to keep her from blurting out the truth.
Ellie, a thoroughly modern woman, has a hard time coping with the lack of a microwave, electricity, and other modern conveniences, and she really does not want to be in 1870. But then she meets Jesse, the man she’s supposed to save from an untimely death. His gallantry and handsomeness, not to mention the terrific way he kisses, soon has Ellie questioning her need to return to the twenty-first century.
NEVADA GOLD is a light-hearted romance as Zeke and Lucky attempt to keep Ellie in line while trying to discover what went wrong the first time in history so they can prevent it from happening again.
