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.

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!

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.

Sydney Dahlquist is stranded in 1810 after her time machine from 2013 failed to send her back to her own time. The rules of time travel include suicide if you are unable to get back to your original time, which Sydney is almost okay with. Soon she's discovered with the time machine, an iPad, and other gadgets from the future, by handsome Miles Griffin. Miles fully accepts her explanation of what the items are, the time from whence they and she came, and that she's stuck in 1810. What he does not accept is her acceptance that death is the only way to preserve the time line. Will Miles be able to convince Sydney to abandon her views about death and the time line and to stay and build a new life with him?

This was a cute little time travel romance. Sydney is a likable character that knows for the good of the timeline and future she should follow protocol and eliminate herself by way of "time travel provided death mechanisms." She also knows that she doesn't really want to die. Her emotion level as she realized that she'll never see her family again is realistic and I empathized with her. We don't really learn a lot about Miles other than he totally has the hots for Sydney and that's okay because the story is more about the present time - which happens to be 1810 - and how or if the choices Sydney makes will affect the future. There is a steamy love scene that unites the two hearts of the main characters and it was written well.

Overall the story is very enjoyable. It's short so there isn't a lot of useless filler to clog up the dialogue. It was a bit rushed in places and Miles' quick acceptance of the time travel notion is pretty unbelievable but if you can move beyond those minor hiccups then I think you'll enjoy this time travel/historical romance.

Time-traveling PhD student Sydney Dahlquist’s first mission sounded simple enough—spend two weeks in December 1810 collecting blood samples from the sick and wounded of Wellington’s army, then go home to modern-day Seattle and Christmas with her family. But when her time machine breaks, stranding her in the past, she must decide whether to sacrifice herself to protect the timeline or to build a new life—and embrace a new love—two centuries before her time.

Rifle captain Miles Griffin has been fascinated by the tall, beautiful "Mrs. Sydney" from the day he met her caring for wounded soldiers. When he stumbles upon her time travel secret on Christmas Eve, he vows to do whatever it takes to seduce her into making her home in his present—by his side.

Review:

I loved the premise of this story, a Vernesque story where time travel is done by scientists to learn about the past. Sydney goes back in time, but her time machine breaks down. As she is about to engage the safety protocols; which include blowing up the machine and killing herself, Captain Miles Griffin comes looking for her. I have to say Miles is Very accepting of what Sydney tells him of her and the time machine.

While Sydney is doing her time travel she meets Miles and you can tell they have an instant attraction, but the times being what they are and that Sydney is only there for a short time nothing comes of it. That is until Miles finds Sydney and the time machine. Once he finds her he tries to convince her to stay with him.

I liked the story, but it seemed too short and would have loved to get more in depth with the characters and the story. I think this would make a great series! The writing style was great and I would definitely read more by this author.
