Annie has been widowed for a year and is lonely, but even while she thinks longingly of some male company, she doesn’t consider the kind that just turns up in her kitchen… stark naked. Not only that but he says he cannot explain why – or how – he’s there. Like that. There’s no sign of a break in and all the doors are still locked.

“Fine. Don’t bother to explain,” she growled. “I wouldn’t want you to strain yourself coming up with a story. But what exactly do you want from me? Dinner?”
To her shock
Interesting Concept Collapses Under Weight of Execution Problems
Since Annie Simpson's husband died a year ago, she's been living a lonely, boring life. At first it helped her heal, but now her days seem empty and lacking purpose. One night, however, Annie enters her kitchen and is stunned and scared to see a large, gorgeous, naked man standing there. Before she can flee or call the police, James convinces her he's not going to hurt her. When Annie finds out he has come back to the past to flee t
Ellen Fisher did a very good job with the whole time-travel plot. I'm not going to give a summary of it because I think this story is best experienced "cold." The story wasn't perfect, there are a few choppy areas and the purpose of a couple of scenes isn't quite clear, but overall this story gives a fresh spin on the time-traveling tale. I think the first half of the book is the stronger part (Fisher does a good job with making the reader believe the "newness" of the time period for the travele ...more

I really wanted to like this, it actually pained me to finish this, it really did. It's not as fantastically written as some of the reviews lead me to believe. I get its a novella, short and sweet, right? Well, it's short but this one is not sweet. It was choppy and rushed but with poor taste, lacking in detail in some areas and too much in others. I could probably keep going but I think the point is made. Maybe it's just me but it left me saying to myself "seriously?" a few too many times. I re ...more

I, Robot with steamy graphic sex.
This was a different take on androids. It was okay, but slow in places and it didn't capture my interest as much as many other sci-fi romance book have and do. The interesting part was how it all fit together, the mystery of it. I didn't get a strong sense of the couple really being in love. Didn't really care for them.
It's worth a read just because of the mystery aspect and how it all fits together.

In fairness, I skipped most of the sex scenes, but the book works as a romance/science fiction story. It is a good story without the sex, and others may prefer reading graphic sex scenes as well.

It is hard to discuss the book without giving away some of the twists, but the twists were fun, even the predictable ones.

“Maybe she was, this early in the pre-Colombian coffee era of the morning, but she couldn’t seem to grasp what the hair dryer had to do with him standing naked in the hall.”

An entertaining and steamy sci-fi romance. :)
Perfectly adequate... Could have been better, if not for the long drawn out, unnecessary info.
