Recommends it for: time-travel romance lovers
A time-travel romance. Its a generally hard premise to write about without making it too neat or too sappy or too sad or too something. Like most of these types, there is some magical article (a Mayan stone, in this case), that allows the heroine to travel to the past, meet some arrogant chauvinistic SOB who we end up liking anyway, undergo some time-paradox dilemma until she decides to take the ultimate sacrifice and leave him. Of course, its not a romance if she doesn't get her man, so this is ...more

Mac, our bookish and solitary leading lady, is tasked by her dying grandfather to return a broken necklace - the remnants of a Mayan expedition gone wrong - to the place it was found, and clear the name of an ancestor accused of killing his best friend. At the temple, however, she finds the situation even more confusing, as she stumbles back in time, and straight into the arms of the man who was supposed to be dead. (And, gasp, he's hot!) Now Mac must complete her task, and find her way back to ...more

MacKenzie Sinclair comes from a long line of adventurers, but as her grandfather imparts on his deathbed, there seems to be a curse on the family. Mac is given a Mayan talisman and sent to some ruins in Guatemala to see if she can try to atone for it. However, what she gets is sent back in time to fall in love with the man she's supposed to be atoning to. The Mayan talisman as means of time travel is as good a one as any I've seen in a Time Travel Romance, and more realistic than most. Mac's rea ...more

Another great read. Can your family really be cursed or is it something else all together. Mackenzie needs to go take back a pendant that her great great grandfather took so that there can be piece as a man went missing never to be seen again. When Mac gets to the place she finds the missing man but he is still young what is going on. He went missing 1884 so how is this possible. Can Mac makes sense of this. I loved it

Twice The Hero was a good read. What's life without taking a few chances or having an adventure or two? Life has been unkind to one woman, but it's time for her to step out of her cocoon and spread her wings. Unfortunately her plans goes array with the discovery of bones. AS one would say, then fate steps in and the adventure begins.
Recommended read.

I absolutely loved this historical romance/time-travel book. It had wonderful characters. The plot had lots of twists and turns. I was actually disappointed when it ended. I would have liked an Epilogue. A great read!!!
