Timeless Desire by Gwyn Cready is a contemporary / historical romance novel with a mix of love, war and time-travel between eighteen century England and the modern day.

Pandora “Panna” Kennedy is a modern woman who lost her husband just two years ago. She works at the Carnegie Library and recently been told that the library will face major budget cuts. In order to save her beloved department she’s trying to hard to come up with a huge plan or even find hidden treasures. Then she unlocks the door under the stairs and finds a secret doorway to the past. Her curiosity wins and she steps through the portal and ends up in a chapel within an eighteen century castle, where she meets Captain James Bridgewater; who remarkably looks like the statue in her library.

Captain James Bridgewater happens to be the illegitimate half-brother of Colonel John Bridgewater, the man of the statue. James is torn between the rebels who wants peace and independence for Scotland and his duties to the English army. When he stumbles upon Panna, he first believes she is a spy, but when he figures out she is telling the true about time-travelling and everything else, he slowly falls for her.

Normally I read a lot of paranormal romance or Urban Fantasy, simply because those are my favourite genres. But from time to time it is nice to read a book that is all about the romance. Timeless Desire is one of those books, no kick-ass chick who don’t need a first, but about a woman who falls for a man in the past and do anything to help him in his battle; even if that means returning to her own time without him.

I loved both main characters Panna and James. She is the modern woman we all know so well and she knows she has to be strong enough to not change the course of history when she is in the past. He is the rebel from that past and trying to do the best for both countries he’s born in England and Scotland, but he finds it hard to succeed.

Gwyn Cready has written a great romance novel with mixes of drama, love and time-travelling in it, which I all love to see in a novel. This was my first novel by this author and I enjoyed reading it, so I’ll definitely go check out her other books. I need to keep my readings genres in balance and her stuff is definitely going to help me with that.
