He was going down. The instrument panel was a maze of wildly flashing numbers and lights, and the cockpit was spinning like a merry-go-round gone mad. He didn't need the scream of warning bells to tell him he was in trouble. He didn't need the insistent red blip on his computer screen to tell him the trouble was big. He'd known that the moment he'd seen the void.

Swearing, clamping down on his panic, he struggled with the controls, using one hand to shove the lever forward for full power. The vehicle bucked and shuddered, fighting the gravitational pull. The Gs hit him like a wall. All around him metal screamed against metal.

"Hold together, baby," he managed to say as his lips stretched back over his teeth. The floor near his feet ripped open in a jagged line three inches long. "Hold together, you son of a—"

He jammed hard due east, swearing again when it seemed that no matter how cleverly he maneuvered he and his ship would be sucked into the hole.

The cockpit lights went out, leaving only the whirl of kaleidoscopic colors from the instrument panel. His ship went into a spiral, tumbling end over end like a stone fired from a slingshot. Now the light was white, hot and brilliant. Instinctively he threw up an arm to shield his eyes. The sudden crushing pressure on his chest left him helpless to do more than gasp for breath.

Briefly, before he lost consciousness, he remembered that his mother had wanted him to be a lawyer. But he'd just had to fly.

When he came to he was no longer spiraling—he was in a screaming free-fall. A glance at his instruments showed him only that they were damaged, the numbers racing backward. A new force had him plastered back against his seat, but he could see the curve of the earth.

Knowing he could pass out again at any moment, he lunged forward to knock the throttle back and turn the ship over to the computer. It would, he knew, scan for an unpopulated area, and if God was in His heaven the crash control in the old bucket would still be functional.

Maybe, just maybe, he'd live to see another sunrise. And how bad could practicing law be?

He watched the world rush toward him, blue and green and beautiful. The hell with it, he thought. Flying a desk would never be like this.

Libby stood on the porch of the cabin and watched the night sky boil. The wicked slices of lightning and the blowing curtain of rain were the best show in town. Even though she was standing under the overhang, her hair and her face were wet. Behind her, the lights in the cabin glowed a warm, cozy yellow. The next boom of thunder made her grateful she'd set out candles and kerosene lamps.

But the light and warmth didn't lure her back. Tonight she preferred the chill and the crashing power that was barreling through the mountains.

Although I have just begun reading this book (if chapter eight can be considered the begining) I am still thoroughly enjoying it. For me personally, I am enjoying this book because it didn't take the whole begining to get into it like other books I have read--it's right to the point. If you don't enjoy novels that get right to the point and that take a while to get into, then I don't think that you would like this book. This book also has some time travel, so if you think that this is too far fetched an idea, then I again would not recommend that you read it. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this book and the sequel..Times Change (Part two of this book(this book is a 2-4-1)) and and can still happily say that it is still worth five stars that I have given it.

I liked the idea of the traveling time, the men being confused and curious was a good concept. My problem is that fact that most of the book they spent having sex. I mean, really, in this day and age do us women jump into a sex relationship within a day or two of meeting a strange man?? I read a book for it's adventure and plot and usually enjoy Nora Roberts' books, but this one took my forever to finish because of page after page of sex and orgasms just didn't ring true. It was boring, I would have enjoyed it more had there been more substance.

At first this story caught my attention. I liked the sci-fi stuff even though I am not a sci-fi reader. It was hard to buy the story line though of a young 20 something virgin who gave it up for this stranger who is stuck in time. He was your typical man with sexual tension. Then when I was convinced of that stuff, here comes these parents that I could have done without. The way they are connected with the future is neat, but I didn't care for the characters. I never finished it and gave it away. It lost my attention.

Don't waste your time with this book. I decided to read it because of the time travel plot. What a mistake. It's completely superficial and not at all imaginative. The characters are one-dimensional and not particularly admirable. There's a great deal of time spent on poorly written sexual encounters. The book is not at all believable. There are far better romantic time travel books. For instance, Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.

HASH(0xa75f5914) out of 5 stars Pretty Good! Nov. 22 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was much better then expected! I am not a real big sci-fi reader, or time travel. I do however, love Nora Robert, and JD ROBB. This book actually reminds me more of the In Death series as far as the format then it does Nora's usual romance.
Caleb in some strange way ends up traveling from the future to our time. The lovely, self sufficient Libby helps him thinking he's a plane wreck victim. The way Caleb reacts to everyday items in this century is funny. I found myself laughing through this story and the ending is great!
Jacob travels through time in search of his brother., Caleb and to bring him home. While Jacob is waiting for his brother to return from a trip with Libby, he slowly begins to fall in love with Libby's sister. Sunny. The ending of this story is better then the first and it will surprise you!
These two story's are reprints combined to one great book. Even if you are not a big time travel reader, if you like Nora Roberts you will not be disappointed.

HASH(0xa332f018) out of 5 stars Good time travel Aug. 28 2001
By Sarah W - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

HASH(0xa332ae94) out of 5 stars Time Travel Is A Reality in Two Romantic Love Stories March 3 2002
By Antoinette Klein - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a fan of Nora Roberts' mainstream fiction, but I had never read one of her romance books. A friend insisted I read this since she considered it not only a great romance but also because of the interesting aspect of time travel. After reading all 505 pages, some highly interesting and some not so interesting, I think I will stick with her mainstream work.
Now, don't get me wrong. The book was enjoyable. If you can accept the idea of time travel and believe that two men from the 23rd century find their way to 1990's Oregon, you are in for a treat. The humor of their situation is played beautifully. Their inability to manipulate a stove, recognize a radio, or understand current phrases is comical. The sexual tension is great with many, many pages devoted to sexual attraction and union, the cutting edge of erotic writing that has made Nora Roberts beloved by millions.
The book appears to be a compilation of two previous works. In the first, "Time Was," Caleb Hornblower is sucked into a black hole and finds himself at a mountain cabin in Oregon, the residence of one Liberty (Libby) Stone. The attraction is immediate, the sex passionate,and the ending extremely romantic. In the second book,"Times Change," Caleb's brother Jacob comes to fetch him home. Since Caleb and Libby are on vacation, the only person he finds at the cabin is Libby's sister Sunbeam (Sunny) who is spending some time alone and deciding what to do with the rest of her life. Jacob and Sunny have a feisty yet passionate affair that will probably come to an end when he leaves to return to the 23rd century. Or will it? Can two smart and savvy women find love with men who will be born long after the women will die? Can flying in and out of black holes and going from century to century really be possible? Can the reader accept any of this and find the story satisfying? To a great extent, yes. My only complaint is that there is much repetition and the story goes on about 200 pages too long. Nora has been blessed with better editing and tighter writing in her later books. However, this one is definitely worth reading if you are a fan of her romances.

HASH(0xa3329864) out of 5 stars Enjoyable Read- I'm glad I took the chance. Sept. 10 2001
By apoem - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

HASH(0xa3162090) out of 5 stars Had some concerns, but great just the same! Sept. 3 2001

I was a little hesitant to read this latest re-issue of Nora Roberts. I am a big fan of her romance and mystery mix, as well as her more strictly romances. But I wasn't sure how I would like the time travel duo. But, I have to say, Nora pulled it off, weaving two stories of love with a little time travel. I have read books that I thought to be better by her, but given my doubts before reading this title, she did an excellent job.
So what happens to Caleb, stranded in the 20th century, and Libby in "Time Was"? Or Jacob, Caleb's brother who comes to rescue him, and Sunny in "Times Change"? The only way to find out is to take the time to read it. In my humble opinion, it is well worth it.
