Kindle is opening my horizons and Out of Time is a great example of the wonderful treasures you can find if you get lucky. Despite the 'paranormal romance' subtitle, Out of Time is really more of a time travel romance with a paranormal complication as part of the conflict than an actual paranormal romance, since neither of the leads go bump in the night, but it is a really good time travel romance.

An accidental trip to the past, lands Professor Simon Cross and his graduate Assistant Elizabeth West in New York during the summer of 1929. Being stranded out of time with only each other to rely on, allows the unacknowledged attraction between the pair to come to light and I enjoyed the way their relationship slowly -and steamily - builds into something more. (For those concerned with sensuality level, Simon and Elizabeth's relationship does become physical and the first love scene is descriptive but not as detailed as most main stream paranormal romance and nowhere near the paint-by-numbers descriptions of the more erotic stuff.)

All of the characters in Out of Time are interesting and fully fleshed with interesting back stories - even the supporting characters. But I really loved Simon and Elizabeth. The pair couldn't be more different. From a moneyed background, Simon is a man who has held himself back from life and relationships with all of their messy complications, so the accidental trip to the past pulls him way out of his comfort zone. Elizabeth's upbringing was almost on the opposite end of the spectrum, but she genuinely likes people and has a talent for relating to others, so she approaches their `ordeal' as an adventure and an opportunity to experience first hand all that this era has to offer.

Simon of course wants to be careful not to make ripples in time.

Time travel! YAY!
Simon Cross, a professor of occult studies, and his graduate student, Elizabeth, find themselves mysteriously transported to 1929. In order to figure how to get back, they have to figure out how they found themselves transported through time in the first place. Living under the pretense that they're a married couple, they find employment at a speakeasy and start making friends. It's interesting to see how the past and the present are both similar yet so very different and how the characters react to the differences.

If this had been a purely time travel story, I think I would have liked it more. About half-way through the story, vampires suddenly make an appearance. I found it rather spoiled the mood for me. It's not that I don't like vampire stories, but the fact that it wasn't a part of the story all along was a little jarring.

As I write this review, this ebook is selling for 99 cents. It also happens to be one of the few 99-cent novels I've picked up where I could get past the first chapter. I got past the first chapter and I wanted to read more!

The writing is professional and flows along smoothly, and the text is well-edited (not always the case with indies).

Simon and Elizabeth, the romantic leads in the story, are familiar types, but I enjoyed the dialogue and the humor their differences brought to the tale. The novel wasn't one that opened with a bang, but before I got too restless the characters were thrust back into time, and that's where the adventure really started.

I'm not an expert on the 1920s, so I don't know how authentic everything was, but it felt like the author got it right to me. Though the action didn't come until later in the novel, I didn't mind because I enjoyed watching these two figure out how to make their new existence work together. I also enjoyed the side characters we were introduced to along the way. A fun cast overall and the author has a sense of humor that comes through on the page.

A couple things kept this from being a five-star read for me. First is the pacing, which dragged at times. If the novel had gone through regular channels, I'd guess some pages would have been shaved off here and there. The second thing is the vampire element. Even though we were told that these guys studied vampires and the occult in the opening chapter, the vampire didn't feel set up that well to me, like maybe the author was just trying to cash in on the popularity of vampires right now. It's just one reader's take, but I would have preferred it as purely a romantic time travel story. Others may feel differently though.

I have no problem recommending it, especially at 99 cents.

I had never read a romance novel before 'Out of Time,' but I'm really glad I gave this one a shot. I enjoyed it from its great premise at the start to its suspenseful finish. I think the strongest element of 'Out of Time' is the writing itself, particularly the dialogue and the characterization of the two main characters (as well as, of course, the romance). Even when there were aspects of the book that I questioned, and that didn't happen often, the strength of the writing and the tension in the story always kept me going. I'm going to nitpick some minor points below, but know that I recommend this book without any reservations.

The book has an interesting structure that makes it almost like two books in one with a big turning point in the middle. I'll talk about each half separately. The first half focuses mainly on the romantic and sexual tension between Elizabeth and Simon, tension they are forced to confront when they accidentally travel back to New York City in 1929. On this element, I felt like a fish out of water because I've never read a romance genre story before, but I can say that these elements worked well for me. If you're curious, there is a vivid but tasteful sex scene or two in the novel.

There are a few points I can quibble with in the first half. At the start of the story Simon is painted as extremely cold, but once they travel through time he softens up a lot; I thought there was a slight disconnect around his character early on, but at the same time it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story and his coldness does (properly) reassert itself later. Another issue I felt early on was that the characters didn't seem amazed enough by accidentally traveling through time, but this issue wasn't handled poorly either.
