Highly enjoyable time-travel romance!

Tanya Taylor, a 28-year-old blonde artist, works at Treasured Maps in New York. (She shows clients rare maps.) One day, while visiting Finders Keepers (her friend May's store) to pick up some maps for her boss, she discovers a dusty old painting of a duel. She thinks it looks haunting and mystical and it looks so real! (May found it leaning against a trash bin 40 years ago in Sag Harbor and put it in the attic with the things she never tagged.) Tanya decides she must have the painting and buys it from her friend. She eventually gets the dusty painting cleaned and finds it is worth alot of money, possibly two million dollars. It's a masterpiece painted by a popular painter/privateer in the 1700's called Stede O'Flannery (who is featured in the painting). Tanya finds she can't bring herself to sell the painting, there's just something about it. The man in the painting...his eyes seem to be following her, everywhere! But it's just her imagination, isn't it?

One day, while in her apartment, a strange but attractive man appears. He looks just like the man in the painting. Thinking her friends are trying to play a trick on her, Tanya doesn't take him seriously when he tells her who he is---Stede O'Flannery. But eventually she does. And she finds he needs help. It seems every so often, he pops out of the painting. But when he does he can only stay out of it for a week, and then he goes back into the painting. A witch/sorceress put a curse on him years ago and it is said that in order to break the curse he needs to fall in love. If he falls in love that will break the curse.

This was a really fun romance. I thoroughly enjoyed it! I liked Stede, he was gorgeous and charming and sexy---with his long dark hair tied back and his green eyes! Tanya found him to be a kind and good man. I also liked Tanya. At first she didn't believe Stede, but after she did she really tried her best to help him out. I really enjoyed their banter. This book also had some hot love scenes and some very funny moments. I liked the parts where Stede was sometimes confused over things in the future, like the part with the Morton salt.

This was a cute, light, sexy and sweet time-travel romance! ( )
