Time Travel Romance

Phantom's Touch

Early in Julie Leto's Phantom's Touch I thought I was mistakenly reading an erotica novel, not a paranormal romance, for the hero and heroine barely said "Pleased to meet you," before they were rolling around naked. I was not ready for their relationship to progress so far, so fast - it made me fee ...

A Highlander of Her Own

I really learned something from this book. If I ever acquire a strange fae-mark in the shape of a rose, signifying that any wish I vocalize will come true, and I then have an urge to wish for "a Highlander of my own," I am going to be more specific. Rather than vaguely wishing for any old Highlander ...

Sword of the Highlands

I will just start with the few elements I actually liked about Veronica Wolff's Sword of the Highlands: the Scots setting, the nicely bad villain (though I did have a problem with his comeuppance), and the escape sequence near the end. However, I had issues with the hero, the heroine, the plot, th ...

Seducing Mr. Darcy

What would happen if you could suddenly appear in one of your favorite novels? That's the interesting premise of Seducing Mr. Darcy, a mix of chick lit, time travel, and alternate reality. Unfortunately, a weak hero left me with mixed feelings about the book. Flip, our heroine, is a re ...

Warrior

I’ve found my first guilty pleasure of the year in Angela Knight’s Warrior, which kicks off her Time Hunters series. Take an alpha male hero, a strong heroine, and a nasty villain, then throw in the future, science fiction, and time travel for an attention-grabbing, fast-paced, lush romance. As ...

Viking Unchained

I’ve read time travel stories where it’s evident that the author did her research. Everything is laid out with scrupulous attention to detail and all the aspects of the story are as accurate as they can be. Viking Unchained is not that kind of story. The time travel aspects are loose, not logica ...

Highland Rogue

Like many - maybe even most - romance novels, Highland Rogue is middle of the road. It has some fun parts, some boring parts, some aspects that work and some that do not. Basically, it's your classic C read. In 1711 Scotland, Quinn McIntyre is a highwayman looking for revenge. The ...

Twist

Twist is a fast, exciting read, featuring one of the best – and strongest – heroines I've encountered in a long time. Abbey has a busy, but lonely, life, with no real friends or relatives. As if that isn't enough, a serial killer is striking close to her home. But Abbey doesn't ...

Master of the Highlands

Like a moth to a flame, I couldn’t resist the lure of another time travel romance set in Scotland. Maybe I’m looking for the Holy Grail of Romanceland (read: Diana Gabaldon writing under a pen name to fill time between Outlander novels). Or maybe I’m just a glutton for punishment. I wouldn’t ...

Tumbling Through Time

I have a few rules for time-travel romances. The most important is that at the end the book the hero and heroine choose to live in the past or the present. None of this "my soul will find yours" nonsense for me. I want the HEA. I knew that within a few chapters of Tumbling Through Time that my r ...
