Cassie | 18 comments My coworker is looking for a book she read as a preteen, in the late 1990s, but it was an adult fantasy romance.

There are multiple realities, and the main character is a guardian of a magical stone. She is isolated to protect the stone. One day, a man from another world makes it through to her world and they go back into his world on an adventure. At first, they don't trust each other or get along. He might be a thief. Eventually they fall in love. People are looking for her because they want to take the stone. At one point, the characters are on a barge on a river.

Not a lot of specifics to go on, but let's see if the magic of this group can help us out!

You can "bump" your thread every month or so. This pushes your thread back to the top of the folder instead of languishing here on page 47 where fewer eyes will see it.
You can do this by typing a new comment at the end of the thread, or even by typing the word "bump."
Good luck!

SBC (essbeecee) | 879 comments It's a little different, but could it be The Tombs of Atuan by Ursula Le Guin?
