Her career was what mattered, and the ambition that had carried her through many a lonely Saturday night brought her out west to land a new account for her firm. Then a force greater than anything she'd ever imagined took her even further... back in time to 1876... and into the life of J ...more

There is a fine line between fantasy and nonsense. Often, that line hinges on to what extent you wish to suspend disbelief. For me, give me a great character or an exciting adventure or a glimmer of an attempt to explain what the heck is going on.

This was a time travel romance. The main character, Elizabeth, goes back in time from 1991 to 1876. No reason. Just happens.

Along the path to a painful ending (that I won't spoil for you no matter how much I don't recommend you getting there anyway),
Loved this book! Like her other books Constance O'Day-Flannery did a stellar job with this book. Elizabeth finds her self thrown back in time after a storm and mistaken for a mail order bride. Being a bit out of it from Novocaine and having just had a tooth pulled she goes along with the men waiting to take said previously mentioned 'mail order bride', and only begins to realize that things are not as they should be when the drugs start to wear off. Elizabeth's character is one of endurance. Hav ...more
Paranormal Romance
Very nice time travel romance. The heroine goes to the dentist to get a tooth pulled only to wake up in the old west. She's immediately mistaken for a mail order bride to a rugged cowboy. I loved the western story line. The hero was your typical cowboy, reserved at times, vocal at others, honest kind and sexy as hell. I was soo glad when the heroine realized he didn't look like Mel Gibson after all. Big relief. You got the feeling that the guy would be able to handle anything. In situations of p ...more

Elle is unhappy with her life, she's been through a lot of trauma, etc. During a visit to the dentist she travels back in time, she first thinks it's all due to the Novocaine, that she's just having hallucination but then she realizes that she's really in 1876, there she meets handsome cowboy Jordan, who thought Elle was his mail order bride, turns out she's nothing like any woman he's ever met. Then you know what happens they fall in love, and etc. I won't say much more otherwise it would spoil ...more

Meski awal ceritanya aneh banget tapi oke banget jalan ceritanya. Gara2 badai terus mati lampu di ruang dokter gigi, Elizabeth yang habis cabut gigi dan dalam pengaruh obat tiba-tiba pindah ke masa lalu?? Masa lalu Elizabeth pun juga bukan cerita keluarga bahagia, jadinya dia terus teringat dengan wajah ibunya yang bersedih, terus terakhir gara2 jatuh dari kuda, tiba-tiba dia loncat ke masa depan, saat ibunya masih muda jadinya dia berusaha untuk mengubah nasib ibunya. Seperti biasa cerita time ...more

How much do I love historical romances? A lot! And if there's time travel? Woot, even better! I love "A Time for Love" because the romance isn't shoved in my face.

When it comes to historical romances, I like it when the physicality isn't so wa-pow, in my face... it's nice to see romance unfold slowly.

This is one of my favorite books - it's really heartwarming and made me cry. Not a lot of books have accomplished that. :)

This was pretty good. It was given to me by a co-worker and I found out that I like it. the only thing I really don't like about it was that Elizabeth and Jordan are like oil and water, they really don't get alone half of the time in the book, I mean I like htat it didn't have insta-love, but come on it you are going write a romance novel, unleast let them get along from the beginning.
