Nora Robert's always hits a home run. I love this series!

The Best Time Travel I have Read

There's more time travel than orginially intended since the reader goes back a full decade and a half before cable news, internet mania, pre-emptive strikes, genetically altered foods, etc. References to the heroines' parents as 60's flower children-made-good adds additional refreshing texture. Best of all, this is powerhouse romance with love scenes about love in two stories requiring the transcendence of time for the love to prevail. The black hole concept is very credible. I preferred it to Michael Crichton's disembodyment through time machines that never made sense and the details of which were distracting to the story. Having heroes from the 23rd century come back to early 1990's America beats a trip to medieval chaos any day.

Two Timeless Love Stories.....

If you're a fan of sci-fi, time-travel, romance, and Nora Roberts...well honey, have I got a book for you! "Time and Again" brilliantly combines all of the above elements and molds them into the perfect romance novel. The two stories involve two brothers from the future and two sisters from the past who fall in love. I myself am not a huge fan of sci-fi and was reluctant at first to buy the novel. I picked the book up, read the back and sit it down at least 20 times over the course of a month before I decided that I would take the plunge and see if it interested me. I can proudly say that it did just that. It took only a day and a half for me to finish the book, I just couldn't put it down! Nora keeps the reader interested by weaving the future and the past together all the while adding that special brand of romance she is so famous for. Take a peak below at a small description of each story and then decide for yourself if "Time and Again" is for you. I betcha it is! "Time Was"....Caleb Hornblower, while on a supply run to Mars, gets sucked into a black hole and is thrust from the 23rd century to the 21st landing in the Klamuth Mountains in Oregon. Liberty "Libby" Stone, seeing what appears to be a plane fall into the mountains, goes in search of survivors. There she stumbles across Caleb, who she takes back to her cabin until she can get help. Libby has never met anyone as curious as Caleb, who seems interested in the most simplest devices. Soon attraction between the two starts to build and Caleb is forced to choose between going home and staying in the past with the woman he loves. "Times Change"Jacob Hornblower, Astrophysicist, has just found a way to travel back to the 21st century and bring his brother Caleb home. Jacob travels back in time and ends up in the same spot Caleb did almost two years earlier. At Caleb and Libby's cabin, Jacob meets Libby's spitfire sister Sunbeam "Sunny" Stone. Thinking at first that Jacob is a lunatic, Sunny throws him out of the house. But with an impending snowstorm ahead Sunny decides to let him stay until the storm subsides and his brother and Libby return from a short vacation. When the power is suddenly cut off, Sunny and Jacob must put their clashing personalities aside and stay warm. That's when things really start to heat up for these two. Knowing that his purpose is to retrieve his brother and return to the future, Jacob struggles to reveal the truth to Sunny. Will leaving her and returning home meaning leaving the one woman he truly loved behind forever? Highly recommended Nora Roberts novel!!!!...

Yet again another WINNER for Nora Roberts!

I recently became a Nora Roberts fan. She is a wonderful and brillliant writer. She keeps turning out book after book and has yet to disapoint. I Loved this book the humor and romance were refreshing.Calieb and Jacob didn't woo the Stone sisters easily,true women need to be fought for. I Loved the relationship between Sunny and Liberty and their parents. This book reminded me of River's End because of the mountains and babbling brooks. Time and Again as well as many others by Nora Roberts is entertaining and well worth the read. Enjoy! Keep writing Nora and we'll keep reading!!!

Enjoyable Read- I'm glad I took the chance.

I have to admit, I had several concerns when I picked up this book. First, I am not into Science Fiction and time travel usually fits into this catagory. Second, as a general rule, although I like Nora Roberts books I do not like JD Robb books (one and the same author!) and I was afraid this would be more of a JD Robb type book. However, I'm a HUGE Nora Roberts fan and decided to give it a whirl.What a wonderful surprise. In the first story:Caleb in some strange way ends up traveling from the future to our time. The lovely, independent Libbie helps him thinking he's a plane wreck victim. The way Caleb reacts to common items in our century is funny. I found myself laughing several times. I particularly liked the ending. In the second story: Jacob travels through time on purpose in search of his brother. While Jacob is waiting for his brother (Caleb) to return from a trip with Libbie, he slowly begins to fall in love with fiesty Sunny. I liked the ending of this story even more than the first story. I appreciated the true to life feelings that Nora is able to depict in her writing. I also appreciated the fresh look at our century.

Good time travel

I love Nora Roberts books. She always makes a good story. But, I must admit that I was a bit leery about how she would work in the time travel bit. I haven't read much time travel romance, so I was leery of that to begin with. But, like most of Nora's books, I loved it. The Hornblower men were great heros. It was very funny to see how they reacted to what Libby and Sunny considered modern times, in fact, some parts of it were downright hilarious. And even though it is one of her original books for Harlequin, it definitely was good. I would recommend this book for any Nora fan or any one who is a fan of romance time travel.
