More About the Author
Along the way she read her hometown library's entire collection of Regency romance, fell in love with the works of Jane Austen, and discovered in Patrick O'Brian's and Bernard Cornwell's novels another side of the opening decades of the 19th century. When she started to write again as an adult, she knew exactly where she wanted to set her books. Her writing has come a long way from her youthful efforts, but she still gives her heroines great hair.
Susanna grew up in rural Alabama. After high school she left home for the University of Pennsylvania and has been a city girl ever since. She worked in England for a year after college, using her days off to explore history from ancient stone circles to Jane Austen's Bath.
Susanna lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and daughter. When not writing or reading, she goes to baseball games, sings alto in a local choir and watches cooking competition shows.

I really liked Sydney and Griffen getting together, although they seemed to be very naive and trusting folks. If somebody told me they were from the future with a time machine I would need serious proof. It would take a lot to convince me, even then I might still have doubts.
This is a sweet romance with a hint of steam, not one of my down and dirty reads, but a really lovely warm read!
This is a new author for me but I am definitely going to checkout her other books!
*Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*
The premise is captivating but the details are sketchy and this is a subject that has been used to write whole novel about so you have to accept up front there are going to be a lot of unanswered questions. The problem is that I assumed it would be in the technical aspects and not in the personal details.
Our heroine and hero are both done well but this almost sounds like the author thought to make a novel and lost interest and made this short story from the piece of it. The other "love interest" is mentioned for what reason??? None, I thought it might come into play as a cause for her predicament but it served no real purpose.
The heroine's resolve for this whole story suddenly just evaporated in the matter of a couple of hours and roll in the hay. Dude was obviously a 1800s stud.
All things considered, this was a nice story but the emotional impact I think it wanted to make fell short, this could have been a great novel length story I believe but was used as fodder for a short story that fell short of the mark for this reader.
Another Quick seasonal read from the House of Entangled.
Sydney and Miles' interlude in 1810 was easy to immerse yourself in, time-travel told in under 50 pages is never going to get too technical now is it. But the story was sweet and the couple likeable. Past meets future in a sexy Christmas get together.
"I can't let myself change the past."
Worth grabbing if you a looking for a little escapism for an hour or so over the Christmas period.

This is a short story but I loved it. Sydney is a wonderful character that is torn in many ways. She wants to go home, she knows she should do what she has been told to do in this situation and she also has fallen for Miles and wants to stay with him. I know it had to be hard for her either way she went. Miles is amazing. He is from a time when woman didn't do or act the way Sydney does. He doesn't care but wants her any way. She tries her best to tell him as little about the future as she can but does tell him about her Christmas with her family. He does everything he can to get her to stay. They may be from different times but they are perfect together. If you like a love story, one about time travel or just want a quick great read pick this one up.
I loved the way time travel was explained in Christmas Past. It's a simple explanation, since this is under 40 pages, but it makes sense. Miles understands it, too, for the most part, and why Sydney can't tell him anything about the future. They spend a fun Christmas Eve dinner together with friends, and then get some alone time afterward. Griffin quite enjoys how forward women of the future are. Of course, Sydney decides to stay but not until she realizes something very important about her time machine. I quite liked that little twist, and can't help but wonder: who did it and why?! Dun dun dun!
