For as long as she can remember, the heroine has felt like an outsider. She thinks herself plain and her strange powers make her hide herself from everyone around her. One day she receives a book from a total stranger. Obsesses with Camelot and the myth of Arthur, she reads about a time machine. She finds said time machine and goes back to Camelot only to find it in ruins. There she saves the life of a warrior and brings him back to modern times. Unsure what to do with him exactly, she begins to see strange things about him. Also she's being stalked by a gorgeous man who says he's been sent to protect her. When he tells her that he's been sent forward in time by his father Merlin to save her from the man she's rescued, the heroine thinks he's nuts. But in his ever changing coloured eyes, she see honesty and honor and she believes him. The heroine and hero succeed in bringing the enemy to the brink of death before realizing that he's the heroine's father and can't be killed until the heroine is conceived else she die herself. So, they travel back to try to right the many wrongs the time travel has brought onto the world. I really liked this book. The hero isn't your typical righteous Gawain of legend. Although he is honorable and will protect the heroine at all costs he also lies by omission. He also craves her as a woman as she craves for him as a man but they spend most of the book hiding their own feelings for one another. The heroine has very low self esteem and the hero doesn't want to take advantage of her. I did feel as if the story dragged a little in the middle as they sort of stumble awkwardly into a sexual affair but I certainly picked up for the finale. This was such a different time travel romance than any I have read before. First off, it's typically the man that comes forward in time who becomes the hero but not in this case. He's actually the villain. And the hero is really the stalker the heroine sort of feared in the beginning. I thought the hero was great because he had more to him that just a knight in shining armor-although he certainly played the part marvellously. And I liked the heroine because she was kind and smart and self conscious which allowed the hero to inform her just how pretty she truly was to him. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312943555, Mass Market Paperback)

Diana Dearborn knows all about romance, at least in the books she writes. But passion eludes her in real life—until she’s offered the chance to travel back in time to Camelot. The world of King Arthur and Guinevere is nothing like she pictured, neither is the knight she encounters on her return to San Francisco: Gawain, the hero of her current project. He’s complicated, mysterious, and sexier than anything her imagination could conjure. And he’s been waiting for her…

Now, joined together in a desperate race, Diana and Gawain must prevent an ancient, evil force from wreaking mayhem in the all-too-real present. Diana must learn to trust Gawain—even while she encounters secrets about her own past. But even if their mission succeeds, does Diana’s destiny lie with this man from another time—and will their love alter history forever?
