Pierson pens a suspenseful historical romance with time traveling elements in Time Plains Drifter. Set in the late 1800's on the Oklahoma plains, Marshal Rafe D'Angelico becomes an angel, but his existence is compromised when he meets the beautiful Jenni Dalton. The catch – she's from the future. The novel opens with Jenni, a teacher, showing her teenaged students a comet during an astronomy lesson. This is not your usual comet, due to its make-up. This comet alters time and sends Jenni, plus her students, to Oklahoma in 1895.  Marshal Rafe D'Angelico and his brother, Cris, are killed when their friend, Josiah Kemp, turns rogue all for a few gold coins. When Rafe awakens, he finds he's angel. His mentor is another angel, Beck Jansen. It's Beck and Rafe's job to keep Jenni and the teenagers safe until they can get back to their time. When Rafe meets Jenni, he realizes she's the woman from his dreams when he was a man, but dare an angel love a human? When Beck reveals the devil is after the group from the future, Rafe has a decision to make – become human again and consummate his love for Jenni, or stay an angel and keep her safe from harm.

Pierson's writing flows effortlessly and is easy to read. The plot is intriguing and keeps the reader in suspense most of the story, especially in the beginning; I kept wondering what was coming next. Her dialogue is rich and captures the flavor of both the 1800's and 2010. Pierson's characters are interesting. Rafe is new to being an angel and doesn't quite understand the dynamics. Jenni is a plucky heroine. The supporting cast is intriguing in their own right. If anything, toward the end, it almost seemed as if Rafe and Milo's fight was taken for granted which made the ending a little predictable. The novel is sophisticated for CRR readers. Pierson's love scenes are graphic, yet tasteful. Time Plains Drifter shows that love can even conquer the span of time.
