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, m ...more

I wanted to like this book because I usually love Susan Squires writing but this one just wasn't doing it for me. I didn't feel the love (or even the attraction) between Gawain and Diana. It had more of a "Merlin thought they should be together so they were" feel to it. I felt Diana and even Gawain were way to angsty and insecure. Diana I could almost understand as she was such a loner which is kind of interesting since she was apparently a successful romance writer. How is that possible if she' ...more
I tried to love this book, but I just couldn't. I didn't find either Gawain or Diana particularly appealing. Their insecurities became more and more irritiating as the story went on. I realize that their self doubts was one of thep oints of the story, but that didn't make it any less irritating. Also,the reason for the two of them being sent to the future didn't seem to make a lot of sense.
Nice genre involving time travel. Overall, a nice and easy read.

Diana Dearborn was a romance author with low self esteem and she has a stalker. She could not remember her childhood before the age of 13, her adopted parents were dead, and her new book was not going well. A stranger gave her an old leather bound book by Da Vinci with instructions for using a time machine he invented in the back of the book. The time machine was located below the museum in which she worked. Diana decided to use the machine to visit Camelot. The machine worked and she found hers ...more
I read a short story by Squires and loved it, and bought two books on the strength of that story.

I disliked this book so much I stopped reading it in the middle.

Why? Well, there's certain things I hate in a novel (especially a romance novel), and this book had it all.

Main character is a romance writer. This seems like a blatant self-insertion. Female character has no friends. Male character has no friends. The no-friends thing bugs me on two levels. First of all, if someone truly has no friends
THE MISTS OF TIME by Susan Squires is a time travel romance set in modern day San Francisco and goes back to the days of Camelot.A Davinci Time Travel novel.

Jumped into this series in the middle--which I usually hate doing!--but found this book and was intrigued as it involves the legend of Camelot/King Arthur and time travel, which are 2 of my absolute favorite things to read about.

It was a fun book. An inventive take on time travel and what ifs.

I will definitely be on the look out for the others in the Da Vinci Time Travel series.

A lovely time travel -- moving, romantic, and full of delightful complexities. :)
Gawain, oh you poor troubled man. Who needs magic when you have those muscles?
Michelle the Romance Witch
wow what a weird but interesting story...
more to come later
Again, although I liked it there was too much smut!
can't wait to read the others in the series
