Computer science professor Matthew Goodson has no time for love-no time for anything, actually, but his quest for tenure and his obsession with the screen. The last thing he expects is to get side-swiped by this adorably odd British miss. Yet something in her calls to him, pulls at him, in a way unknown-and uncomfortable.
Can the past and the present blend together into a mutual future? Or will old wounds and new complications sabotage any chance at a twenty-first century happily ever after?
The simple truth here, neither is looking for a commitment, only a little fun...but sometimes fate has other things in mind and when the heart gets involved, yeah...the tables can turn quicker than you can imagine. Their "little fun" turns into something potentially more...or at least it would be if either would actually tell the other what they were thinking, feeling, SOMETHING! Geesh! For a technologically advanced society, we're not always the best at communication. One thing leads to another and another and soon...it may all unravel before it's really begun. Will this couple-to-be actually get a chance to "be" or will circumstance and the past overshadow their bright and glorious future? You'll have to read it to find out, but you'll be glued to every page as you race to the finale...
With a healthy dose of today as well as yesterday, this book had broad appeal to Contemporary and Historical Romance fans alike. Amara is a very likable character, strong-willed, eager to take on the world, and yet held back at times by the societal truths of her century. Matthew is a great guy, though a workaholic, with a BIG heart hidden away under all that "no strings" exterior...and what an exterior! *wink wink* It was a pleasure visiting with familiar faces, getting to know these two and meeting their families as well, whom I gather may be featured in upcoming stories (*crosses fingers*).
Margaret lives in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Virginia with her fantastic husband, two fabulous kids, and two fat cats. You can usually find her in front of some sort of screen (electronic or window); she's come to terms with the fact that she's not an outdoors person.
