Book Description

SHORT novella. Less than 20,000 words/ About 40 pages.

Be Careful What You Wish For. . .

No-nonsense stuntwoman Isabella Douglas will do anything to stop an unwanted divorce and reclaim the happy life she had, even allow her old friend to concoct a magical spell to turn back time. But when the spell goes awry, Izzy finds herself trapped aboard a 1768 Caribbean pirate ship with a captain who’s a dead ringer for her sexy as sin husband, Ian. Convinced he’s playing a cruel joke, she’s furious – until she realizes he doesn’t know her or believe they’re married.

Captain Ian Douglas does not have time to deal with an insane woman who claims to be his wife; he has to save his kidnapped sister. But as Izzy haunts his dreams and fills him with erotic memories he can’t explain, he’s forced to admit he feels more than lust.

Trapped in a vicious cycle of past mirroring present, Izzy knows they only have days to find Ian’s sister and prevent disaster from striking a second time. If she doesn’t, their marriage will be destroyed again – along with the man she loves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked, sexy romp December 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Isabella 'Izzy' Douglas receives the worst birthday present ever. Divorce papers. She doesn't want a divorce but doesn't know what else to do. Izzy has always taken the easy way out.

Her husband, Ian, has been uncommunicative and over protective of Izzy, since the death of his sister a year ago.

Such are the beginnings of this wickedly sexy story.

With a bit of magick from Izzy's godmother Celeste, Izzy and Ian are given a second chance at happiness in a different time and place. 1768 Caribbean. Will Izzy fight for what she wants? Will she fight for the happiness she can have with Ian or will she take the easy way out.

I highly recommend this fun high seas romp. Jennifer Jakes has a definite winner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy saucy time travel December 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great little novelette about a woman who is injured in a stunt on a movie scene. Upon her rescue, she finds herself aboard a vintage ship where her husband is captain. He does not recognize her and she soon realizes she has been transported back in time.
I love the premise of this book, a woman going back in time and finding all the characters of her regular life residing in the past. Steamy love scenes between the protagonist and her spouse are full, sultry, and engaging. Very well written. For light erotica and historical romance, this story is a winner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jakes has done it again December 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ms. Jennifer Jakes has done it again with this steamy little short. Twice in a Lifetime is a great combination of contemporary, historical, time travel fantasy, and romance with enough spice to keep you turning the pages. Curl up on the couch with a cup of doesn't even need to be hot...Jennifer will provide the heat.

I like to get to know the characters as I'm reading and this book just didn't give them depth or character. I bought the book because of the idea for the story but it never truly develped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saucy, sassy, sexy time travel! December 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jennifer Jakes snapped us to attention with her first book, RAFE'S REDEMPTION, a historical western with enough heat to power a few generators. Now she's turned us onto another world brought to life with her skill...time travel...with a twist.

Izzy and Ian have grown apart, life's lessons have been harsh and neither are quite prepared to deal with what is taking place between them. Time is running out to save their marriage, and the lovers continue to push against each other, rather than come together.

When Izzy is suddenly snapped back in time, and is saved by none other than her own husband (dressed, and acting piratical) she realizes she needs to do all she can to save them RIGHT NOW...the future rests on what happens to them in the past, but Ian doesn't quite recognize the sexy woman he's pulled from the water. He's skeptical, but intrigued.

Jennifer's plot is interesting and quite different. Her writing is quick, sensual and smart, while emotional and tender as this married couple realize what is important in life.

Get ready for pirates, a little voodoo, and very heated love scenes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot book with an awesome twist! December 28, 2011
By Kellie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Do you like pirates? Magic? Hot, sweaty sex? Sassy heroines and handsome heroes? Then this book is for you! From The first sentence Ms. Jakes drew me into the story and I had to keep reading to the end. Izzy Douglas is a sassy stuntwoman on the brink of divorce from handsome husband, Ian. A wish and a spell gone awry cast her back 300 years to where she gets a second chance with the love of her life. Or so she hopes.

A fantastic twist on a pirate historical, Ms. Jakes gives the reader yet another great book to read. I can't wait to see more work from this great author!

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, not my cup of tea August 13, 2013
By Loree

I am not a time travel fan to begin with, but this was an especially bad read for me. It was convoluted to follow the plot line and the character development was non-existent. This author is a good writer because I have read other books she has written.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure Junk -- not a good read!
The premise sounded good -- but, the actual writing was junk and the "love story" was trash. I will not read any more book by this author.

I wished it was longer with more happening. You look and look for a character that is later tossed aside. But a good quick read.

4.0 out of 5 stars almost 5 stars
It started out really well thought out and the ending turned out to be surprising but a little too rushed. I kept wondering how they were going to pull it off
