More About the Author

Susanna Fraser wrote her first novel in fourth grade. It starred a family of talking horses who ruled a magical land. In high school she started, but never finished, a succession of tales of girls who were just like her, only with long, naturally curly and often unusually colored hair, who, perhaps because of the hair, had much greater success with boys than she ever did.

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.

This is a really sweet quick read. I am not always into time travel romance, they get too science-y at times. But this was a really nice read. Sure, things take a turn into science-y at the very end, but the real meat of the story already happened so, it was easy to skim.

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!

This is a story that has such scope a short story like this has to cut a lot of corners to come in at about 40 pages.

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.

3.5- "Come with me. It's Christmas." Stars.

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.

When a time traveler from the future gets stuck in the past because of a broken time machine, she copes as best she can under the circumstances. She even gets an eventual ally who also learns her secret and basically wants her to stay. Sydney the time traveler was really likeable and you wanted her to get back to her time and if she could take back sexy captain Miles Griffin with her. A nice read with wit and charm and short enough you’ll enjoy it.

Sydney is on her first journey as a time traveler. She has went back to 1810 to get blood samples and what should be an easy journey has become something more. Her machine has quit working and now she is trapped in that time. She knows protocol says she can't interfere or talk much to the people in the time. It could effect the future if she does. She is supposed to destroy the machine and herself. Miles is a captain with the army and has been keeping an eye on Sydney who he is very attracted to. When he finds her on a Christmas Eve and her time machine he knows he has to keep her for all time his time. He just has to convince her she needs to stay with him and not worry about the future.

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.

A fun time travel romance to read during the Christmas season. I enjoyed reading about the couple who remained together despite the differences of living in their different centuries.

Christmas Past is a delightful holiday novella with a Science Fiction twist! Sydney is a time traveler who studies diseases from the past. On her venture to 1810, her time machine breaks down and she's stranded. According to the Protocol, she's suppose to destroy her time machine (disguised as a wagon) and down a fast acting poison. This is all to prevent changes to the past that may alter the future. However, as Sydney is about to take the pill, Miles Griffin stops her. He's seen the inside of her time machine and the iPad, so he believes her story, but can't bare to let her kill herself. He convinces her to spend Christmas with him, and hopes that he can woo her into staying with him.

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!
