Timeless Desire An Outlander Love Story by Gwen Cready
I am on the Round the World Cruise and have limited Internet. I am using this time to catch up on my TBR pile on my ereaders. My posts are short with no links or graphics. Check my travel blog to see where I have been and where I am going.
I must have purchased Timeless Desire as it is not on the list of books I accepted to review. It still was on my ereader as a TBR.
I like time travel books and this one caught my interest because it features a librarian as the main female character. As one of my many careers I was a school librarian or school library media specialist if the correct term is used. I have found that we librarians are always up for adventure.
Panna is the main character in Timeless Desire. She is the librarian in the Andrew Carnegie Library in Carnegie, Pennsylvania and has just learned that there that the library is going to have a big budget cut next year. She has always been drawn to the statue of Colonel John Bridgewater, Viscount Adderly that sits in her library. When she finds a door to the past under the library stairs she meets the real thing. But wait, things are not as they seem. John Bridgewater certainly is not but James Bridgewater, now that is a different story. She does try to raise money for her library even though she is in the past.
Both James and Panna are wonderful characters and are made for each other. In a romance it is always the journey that makes the story and Panna and James have a dangerous and exciting journey before they arrive at their HEA. There is plenty of mystery and a lot of twists and turns in the story. Be prepared to be surprised.
James is an Outlander and that is why the term is used in the story and in the title. For me Outlander brings to mind another series and it was a little districting to see it used here as part of this series. It may be the same for other people but look past that and enjoy the story.
Astor Blue Editions published Timeless Desire by Gwen Cready in 2012.
