I loved this book. Early '80's time travel romance that was a real treat! I'm wary of '80's romances, but this was a winner. Contemporary heroine, Jessica Lund has a Regency lord pop into her car while driving home one night.in Connecticut. He just shows up all of a sudden with no warning He's just as perplexed as she is! The two of them must deal with his unexpected time travel and it's repercussions as they fall in love while trying to determine if he can disappear just as easily as he appeared in the first place. To complicate matters, she loses her memory as they travel to London so he can research what happened to him 160 years earlier. Not your typical scenario, she has trouble remembering him and doesn't fall for him again which naturally creates a rift between them. I had a hard time putting this one down and the cliffhanger is a killer! Must. Read. Next. Book. ( )

This is book one in Jo Ann Simon’s acclaimed time travel romance from the early 1980s.

Christopher Dunlap, a man of title and privilege in early nineteenth century England, and Jessica Lund, a thoroughly modern woman, suddenly find their lives mysterious entwined in Jessica's late twentieth century world.

Neither understand how Christopher, a man who had been living a happy life nearly two hundred years in the past, is now flesh and blood in Jessica's present.

They soon share a love for each other as deep as it is dangerous, for whatever has brought them together can just as easily tear them apart.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:11:24 -0400)

A twist of Fate will turn her life upside down . . . It started out as just another ordinary day. Jessica Lund is on her way home from work when she suddenly notices a man sitting in the passenger seat of her car! But this is no ordinary man. Christopher Dunlap is arrogant, opinionated, and absolutely gorgeous. Unfortunately for Jessica's state of mind, he's also claiming to be an English nobleman-from 1812. Neither understands how Christopher, a man who'd been living a happy life nearly two hundred years in the past, is now flesh and blood in Jessica's present. But he's definitely real. And so are the feelings he inspires in Jessica. They soon share a love for each other as deep as it is dangerous, for they know that whatever brought them together could just as easily tear them apart.… (more)
