With that in mind, the time travel element was an interesting twist. The author handled it credibly enough for someone who is not a theoretical physicist. The science fiction geek in me wants to say 'but such and such research now proves...', but this isn't a science fiction novel. If I'd wanted to read science fiction this week, I'd have BOUGHT science fiction. I wanted romance. I got it. The characters were likeable and compelling, especially Liberty. And this book left me warm and squishy enough inside that I'm glad I invested a couple of bucks for this book (used) and just went out and hunted down the second book in this series (also used).
Only two complaints. 1) - why do romance writers still insist on making mid-twenty-something women virgins? and 2) You could tell the author had a 250 page cutoff because the last chapter feels rushed. It cut off at EXACTLY page 250. I wish she'd gone back and snipped and clipped a few places earlier in the book instead of rushing the final scene so much. It had the potential to earn it that 5th star and didn't quite make it.
The verdict ... if you see it in the bargain bin it's worth a read.
Caleb Hornblower, a freelance cargo pilot from the 23rd century, is on a routine flight home from Mars when he diverts to avoid a meteor shower and is catapulted through a time gateway. With instruments going wild, the cockpit in darkness and the pressure making him lose consciousness, his ship whirls towards the earth. As Libby races to where she believes a plane went down she finds Caleb injured by the side of the track and manages to get him back to the cabin. As she nurses Caleb back to health Libby attributes his sometimes strange behaviour as the result of the accident. Little does she know.
I remember reading this book a long time ago. I think it was first published in the late 80’s or early 90’s as a Silhouette romance. I went for this newly released audio version because, well, it’s Luke Daniels and his narrations are always excellent, he always brings so much to his performance which enhances a story enormously.
Given the passage of years and the formula it followed, the story is a little dated. The dominant, could be seen as overpowering, male and the shy, virginal female, intelligent but naive, scenario could have been less than appealing but Nora Roberts handles it well.Read more ›

Over all I would recommend it. It dropped pace in some parts but still good. It could have been more detailed in the romance department.Published 7 months ago by RooterScooter
