Fun book. The subject is interesting, with the story taking place in two different time periods. Dillinger is alone on his ranch after the death of his wife when he hears a baby crying. When he opens the door and picks her up from his porch, he is sucked into the 21st century. Auburn takes pity on him and the baby and takes them home with her. He is very confused at first, but takes it in stride pretty quickly. Auburn thinks he's nuts at the beginning, but is also convinced before long. They try ...more
Wow, I hate to say how much I really didn't enjoy this book. I understand it's a short book and yes it was a monthly but sometimes I luck in with something amazing. This however wasn't it. The characters were unreal. Auburn was the most annoying female lead with the fact that her personality shifted so frequently. Dillinger I sort of liked but I have a soft spot for cowboys. Truthfully he adapted far to easily and seemed to get over his dead wife and fall in love all during a romp in the sheets ...more
A very heart warming read, I won the book from Ann Aguirre during her Hell Fire promotion and got it off my TBR shelf and sat down in just a few hours and read this lovely little story. I am a sucker for anything set in Texas and even though the book really does not describe in great detail any one particular place other than the fictional ranch that Kent owns in Christmas River, it was still neat to read a book set in my birth state.... This is my first Tina Leonard book to read and do not thin ...more

Dillinger Kent, a former gunslinger, never expected to hear a baby crying on his front porch, but he couldn’t ignore the sweet little angel at his front door, especially so close to Christmas. So, he reached for the child - and found himself swept forward into the twenty-first century.

Auburn McGinnis had come to her senses just in the nick of time. Marrying Brad, a man she didn’t love, would solve her family’s financial problems, but she’d be utterly miserable. What she needed was an old fashion
I usually love time-travel stories, so I picked this up. But I couldn't suspend disbelief long enough to enjoy it.

The heroine's actions made no sense. A woman is on the run, meets a complete stranger who appears out of nowhere with a baby that she suspects isn't his. So she suspects this guy is a kidnapper, and what does she do? Immediately brings him home to her apartment! Are you kidding me??? You would think a woman who is on the run would have more sense! The guy could be a murderer for all
Okaaay, so it's a Harlequin. I admit to being a bit embarrassed, but it was loaned to me, and I needed something light, and actually, I enjoyed it. I think the author has a non-Harlequin future if she wants it. The plot was fantastical: gunslinger-turned-rancher finds baby on his doorstep in 1892, and when he picks her up the two of them wind up in NYC, c.2010. They meet a lovely woman (nat), Auburn, but after several days in 2010, somehow Auburn ends up back in 1892, and her gunslinger doesn't ...more

Dillinger is sitting in 1892, while Auburn is in the 21st century. Both lost and trying to find their own way. They come together. With a pair of earrings, a baby and Polly.
