For the record I've read 8 of the authors listed above previously. In the introduction by Telep she mentions how time travel romance flourished in the 90's and early new millennium, but how paranormal romance has sort of shoved it away. I tried to remember the last *new* time travel romance I had read and I believe it would be Gwyn Cready's Tumbling Through Time, which I only liked so-so. I know that Brenda Joyce had several with her Time Guardians series--which was also a so-so series in my opinion. If you count e-books, then Emma Lai's 'Mates of the Guardians' stories are also time travel (the Guardians protect time and such), both of which I enjoyed quite a bit.

So if you're like me you're wondering why I would buy a book about Time Travel Romance (when I should have bought the Vampire Romance anthology, or the second Paranormal Romance anthology) and the truth is that I want to like Time Travel Romances. I was unfortunately tainted by all the ones in the 90's however and grew very cautious of the concept.

Did I enjoy this anthology? At times. I was disappointed more often then not, and felt that some of the endings to the stories were too 'And you can guess what happens next' for my tastes. I'm shallow, I like my romances to end with something along the lines of 'happily ever after' if they're not going to end with 'and they all died'. Give me syrupy sweet or give me bitterly dark.

That said I did enjoy some of them--Gwyn Cready's "The Key to Happiness" was refreshing. In it a man comes back to stop the woman he loves from making a choice that will ultimately kill her spirit. She'll have everything she wants for years, but then one moment in time happens and her world crumbles around her feet.

None of the authors listed on the cover--Nina Bangs, Jude Deveraux, Linda Howard, Sandra Hill, Lynn Kurland, or Karen Marie Moning--have stories published in the ebook version. And there are only 20 stories instead of the 25 advertised on the cover. I enjoyed the stories in it, some more than others as is usual for an anthology, but I returned the ebook for a refund because the book did not deliver as advertised. I'm going to request a print copy by interlibrary loan to see if the print copy is defective and deceptive too. (9/13/13: Print cover is different from one shown by Amazon. I've uploaded a copy of the actual cover used which says 20 stories and doesn't list the authors shown on the Amazon image.)

This book provided some very frustrating times for me while reading. It had some great stories in it & some not so great stories. I felt like as soon as the story started getting good it was over and I wanted more...on some of them not all of them! A few were very far fetched and I couldnt get a grasp of what they were talking about. Then some of them were very cute and left me looking up those authors for more books by them. It is an easy time passing read if you dont have the time to get into a long book then I suggest this for easy reading.

Some of the stories in here were better than others, and that's usually the case with an anthology; they're not usually all just as good or bad as the rest. I generally prefer full novels to short stories, but this was a reasonably good collection. If you've never read a time travel romance and want to dip your toe, this is a good sampling.

These mammoth books are great and filled with short reads. I keep one with me at all times. Perfect for when gassing up my car, waiting for a doctor appointment, and even relaxing in the bathroom! Recommended!

As with all anthologies, there's a couple of okay stories, but with this one, there's a lot of good stories - even pointed me to some new (to me) authors. Enjoy!
