Love Transcends Time: 5 Romances to Break the Space-Time Continuum

First Time with a Highlander by Gwyn Cready

Today we're thrilled to welcome Gwyn Cready to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Gwyn's latest release in her Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands series, First Time with a Highlander, comes out on October 6. A main feature of Gwyn's series are heroes traveling back into time. Gwyn is here today to talk about other time travelers, but ones that we've fallen in love with onscreen (and in some pages on the page, too). Thanks, Gwyn!

Here, my friends, are my top time travel stories. I’m not even going to include Somewhere in Time, which clearly needs to be a category all its own. Here are the rules: First, the story has to have a central romance because, well, because I’m doing the list, not some Halo-playing guy who thinks the way the guy in Terminator 2 turns to liquid silver is really cool. Second, the story doesn’t have to be straight time travel as long as it plays with time in some way.


Is anyone surprised this tops my list? It’s the reason I became a romance novelist. It has a kick-ass heroine, the most romantic, loyal, brave, intelligent, and supportive hero ever imagined, and it really brings its time period—1740s Scotland—to life. The best part of all is if you like the first book, there are like SIX THOUSAND MORE PAGES of the story to read! It drives me insane that Diana Gabaldon happily categorized this book as a romance at its launch in 1992 and now categorically denies it is one. It is one, trust me—and a great one. Just read the book before you watch the STARZ series that debuted last fall. They are both highly savorable, but the book must come first.

30 Days Has Spurtember: Spurts You’ll Never Forget, Part 3

Mine Tonight by Lisa Marie Perry

Are you ready for the final six spurts in our Spurtember Bonanza? Let’s get right to them.

In Lisa Marie Perry’s Mine Tonight (Book 3 of The Blue Dynasty series), there is an angry hero and an emotionally messed up heroine. Bindi Paxton has lost her fiance and her shot to stardom, so she heads to the Seychelles Islands for a vacation. There she meets Santino Franco, a man reeling from the loss of his pro football career due to injury. The injury has also caused Santino to suffer from erectile dysfunction, making this spurt a special one.

Bindi rode, stealing his control, so determined to take him higher and lure him deeper.

Hold me….

But he didn’t. As a spasm seized him, he captured her hips in a tight grip and groaned as a series of hot spurts coated her.

“I’m freakin’ lost in you.” Jerking softly into her now, Santino held her face, tasted her lips. “You’re so beautiful.”

That word.


 As in compliant. As in available. As in pleasing.

The end of a spurt drought!

[Time to vote on those spurts ...]

All I Want: Exclusive Excerpt

All I Want by Jill Shalvis

Pilot-for-hire Zoe Stone is happy to call Sunshine, Idaho, her home base. But her quiet life is thrown for a loop when her brother’s friend Parker comes to stay with her for a week. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife special agent is a handsome flirt with a gift for getting under her skin. And the situation only escalates when Parker hires her to fly him around the area while he collects evidence on a suspected smuggler.

Now she has to live and work with the guy. But when they’re in the air, she sees another side of him. He’s driven, focused, and sharp. And while he enjoys giving commentary on her blind dates, she quickly realizes with a shock that it’s Parker who gets her engines going…

Get a sneak peek at Jill Shalvis's All I Want (available October 6, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

“I don’t obsess,” Zoe said.

“Are you kidding? You’re the queen of obsessing. So just get it out of the way, okay? It’s a blind date — act spontaneously. And then relax and go with the flow.”

“I always go with the flow,” Zoe said.

Darcy laughed. “You go with the flow never. Try it my way? Just this once? Trust me, if there are sparks, you’ll thank me.”

First Look: Nalini Singh’s Rock Redemption (October 6, 2015)

Nalini Singh
Rock Redemption (Rock Kiss #3)
Nalini Singh / October 6, 2015 / $15.29 print, $4.99 digital

From New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh comes the next contemporary romance in the Rock Kiss series…

Kit Devigny could have loved rock guitarist Noah St. John. Their friendship burned with the promise of intense passion and searing tenderness…until the night Noah deliberately shattered her heart. 

Noah knows he destroyed something precious the night he chose to betray Kit, but he’d rather she hate him than learn his darkest secret. All he has left is his music. It’s his saving grace, but it doesn’t silence the voices that keep him up at night. Chasing oblivion through endless one-night-stands, he earns a few hours’ sleep and his bad boy reputation. 

When a media error sees Noah and Kit dubbed the new “it” couple, Kit discovers her chance at the role of a lifetime hinges on riding the media wave. Wanting—needing—to give Kit this, even if he can’t give her everything, Noah agrees to play the adoring boyfriend. Only the illusion is suddenly too real, too painful, too beautiful…and it may be too late for the redemption of Noah St. John.

Be with me. These are the three words that define probably the strongest and most gut-wrenching installment in Nalini Singh’s Rock Kiss series yet. Noah St. John has some demons and Katherine “Kit” Devigny knows it. In fact, Noah does something pretty horrible to Kit that all but destroys the close intimacy as friends that could have become something more. To avoid spoilers, I am just going to say Noah is in a bad way at the beginning of the book and Kit is an amazing heroine. People will remember Kit as someone who put off Molly, Fox’s heroine, in the first Rock Kiss book. However, I’m happy to say Singh clarifies and clears up the tension between the two women to the point where Molly has become Kit’s confidant.

Angels and Demons: Paranormal Romance Best Bets for September 2015

Heir to the Pack by Laura Welling

September offered some paranormal twists on classic romance tropes - unplanned pregnancies, the sexy detective, the classic woman in peril and love triangles.  These books are sexy and suspenseful, so get reading!

Heir to the Pack by Laura Welling

Three years ago Annie had a sexy fling in Cancun (who hasn’t?), only she away with a son, Jack. Seriously, what happens in Mexico never stays in Mexico.  Now lil Jack is seriously ill and so she sets out to find the baby-daddy Dash, only to learn that Dash is a werewolf and that Jack is his heir and possibly cursed too.  Annie is a scientist so she’s not inclined to believe any of this werewolf stuff.  Dash is a bit confused about how he managed to conceive with a human. Fortunately none of these concerns get in the way of Dash and Annie getting hot and bothered.

Tall, Dark and Immortal by Cat Devon

Journalist Kiera is a little surprised to learn her family secret, her grandfather was the Indian Jones of the vampire hunter community.  While writing a hot story about blood bank robberies she crosses paths with sexy detective Alex who happens to be a vampire.  Alex thinks that Kiera may be his mate, only he’s not sure he can trust her, but he’s not above kidnapping her to figure out. As usual, Cat Devon offers interesting twists on the vampire theme with her engaging Chicago setting and rapid fire dialogue.

Dealing in Culinary Orgasms: Burnt Trailer

There's lots to love about Bradley Cooper's upcoming Burnt, least of all Bradley Cooper himself. The title of this film lends itself to several themes—cooking (obviously), the idea of Bradley's character as being burned out on the industry, and of course, his own burning of bridges in a yet-undisclosed event from Paris. 

Of course, we think we were sold once Bradley said “Culinary Orgasm”... who doesn't love a man who can cook AND looks like BCoop? No one that's who! 

What are your thoughts on chef-heroes? Many people have pulled out the similarities to the 2007 film starring Catherine Zeta Jones and Aaron Eckhart, do you see it? Let us know what you think in the comments!

First Look: Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Forever With You (September 29, 2015)

Jennifer L. Armentrout
Forever With You (Wait for You #5)
Avon / September 29, 2015 / $7.99 print, $4.99 digital

In the irresistibly sexy series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout, two free spirits find their lives changed by a one-night stand…

Some things you just believe in, even if you've never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It's out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she's got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph's eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.

Nick's self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he's knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she's building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can't walk away. Not when she's the only one who's ever made him wish for forever . . .

I’ve enjoyed the entire Wait for You series, and was so incredibly happy to find that Stephanie was getting her own book. There was something about her character from the first time she was introduced in Trust in Me (Cam and Avery’s story) that piqued my curiosity. I wanted to know even more about her after the role she played in Be with Me (Teresa and Jace’s story). And Nick? After meeting him in Stay with Me (Calla and Jax’s story) and then getting to know him better in Fall with Me (Roxy and Reece’s story), I really wanted this player to meet his match.

Boy, did he ever.

H&H Bloggers Recommend: Best Reads of September 2015

Each month, we ask our bloggers to share the best thing they’ve read (or things, plural, if our bloggers declare a tie ’cause they just can’t choose). It doesn’t have to be a new book, as evidenced below; just something that made the month sparkle a bit more.

Without further ado, here’s the installment for September 2015 (and if you’ve missed any, be sure to check out past recs via the Related Posts section at the bottom of the post):


A blistering hot reunion romance, Unforgiven by Anne Calhoun also packed an emotional wallop for me. I really enjoyed the complexity of the characters: both are admirably strong and capable, yet heart-wrenchingly haunted. The heroine's unabashed love of sex is also a plus.

Scandal of Scandalicious Book Reviews:

Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren

Nerd love is the best love. The pacing of this story kept me reading at a fast clip, never once wanting to put it down. Our heroine Lola is beautifully geekish and completely relatable, even in the throes of an extraordinary circumstance. The overwhelming sensation of her introverted personality slamming straight into a brick wall of celebrity was expertly portrayed. And Oliver, oh, Oliver - he is deliciously nerdish but never once does he come across as beta which makes for very interesting reading.

Lost Girl 5x12 Recap and SPOILER Thread: Law & Succubus

Note: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Lost Girl, including for Season 5, Episode 12, “Judgment Fae," which aired Sunday on Showcase in Canada. We'll re-share this Bo/Dyson-centric recap when the episode airs on SyFy in the U.S. in early 2016!

Bo and Doctor Lauren are getting busy in the shower, swapping blue spit along the way. Afterwards, the doc is hungry but doesn’t remember she already ordered a pizza. Bo is worried and gets more so when, in her enthusiasm for her new conduit abilities, the doc lets slip that Hades helped her cinch the equation for the process that made her (sorta) Fae. Bo is nowhere near as excited for Doctor Lauren’s abilities and learning her father was involved in the doc’s transformation doesn’t help. The doc gets a little snippy when she realizes Bo doesn’t trust her. Shocking! Wonder why?

What Trope Would You “Live” In?

We all love tropes—maybe the governess/duke, the villain to hero, or the reunited lovers are your favorites. However, there are some romance novels that we love to read, but would probably never want to be a part of: orgies are fun, dystopic apocalypses maybe not so much. The reverse is true too!

So in the spirit of the age-old “If you love it so much, why don't you marry it”: What trope would you want to live in? Is there a romance novel that best embodies that trope? What do you love about it so much?

First Look: Cassie Mae’s Doing It for Love (September 29, 2015)

Doing It For Love by Cassie Mae

Cassie Mae
Doing It for Love (All About Love #1) 
Loveswept / September 29, 2015 / $2.99 digital

Cassie Mae’s charming, sexy new novel, perfect for fans of Emma Chase, puts a steamy twist on modern love as one bride-to-be tries to put the spark back in the bedroom—by any means necessary.

Elizabeth Fanning’s life looks pretty perfect, judging by the diamond ring on her finger. Her fiancé, Landon, is sweet, handsome, and hilarious. The trouble is, before they’ve even tied the knot, their sex life has gone from mind-blowing to “meh”—and Liz isn’t ready to be part of an old married couple. After a cathartic call to her best friend, Liz comes up with a brilliant idea. She and Landon may never be able to re-create the magic of their first time, but how amazing would their wedding night be if everything below the neck was off-limits until then?

Liz thinks it’ll bring them closer together. Landon’s convinced she’ll cave first. So they raise the stakes: Whoever lasts longer gets to pick their honeymoon destination. With her heart set on the Bahamas and Landon fighting for snowbound Utah, Liz simply has to win. But pretty soon, her body is screaming for attention, and Landon’s never seemed so far away. Has Liz’s experiment backfired? Losing their little competition would be frustrating—but the one thing she can’t afford to lose is him.

It isn’t often that I’m surprised when I read a book—really surprised—but Cassie Mae's Doing It for Love pulled out all the stops. Liz and Landon are for real. They’re young, they’re struggling, their friend circle is their companions from childhood and college, they have no money, and they’re in love. Landon’s just pretending to be a struggling film maker: he can tap into his trust fund whenever he wants, right? Same with Liz, she isn’t really working at the Bed, Bath, and Beyond to earn her share of the rent, no, she’s doing it for existential reasons that have yet to be revealed.

Fall by Chance: New Adult Romance Best Bets for September 2015

Fighting Wrath by Jennifer Miller

This month’s New Adult reads range in setting but one thing is the same, they all took a chance on something bigger than themselves. They took a leap into the unknown and whether it be in a strict religious community or a football stadium, they managed to carve out a new beginning with love.

Fighting Wrath by Jennifer Miller is the second in her Deadly Sins series but, can be read as a standalone. Tyson is dealing with residual anger from his childhood and he’s turned to underground fighting to let it out. He meets Sydney at the local bookstore that he takes his niece to for story time (swoon). Their attraction is instant and their relationship blossoms but, secrets threaten to tear it apart. Will they fight for their happy ending or will their secrets prove to be too much?

Sins of Sevin by Penelope Ward is a forbidden romance. Sevin has been raised in a strict religious family and has always felt as though he’s been suffocated by it. However, tragedy forces him to reevaluate and he’s soon courting his future wife but, it’s the wrong sister. The pull to Evangeline can’t be ignored but with family values, relationships and religion in the way, will they get the ending they deserve? This book pulled me in all different directions! THE FEELS!

A Silver Wolf Christmas: Exclusive Excerpt

Terry Spear

A Silver Wolf Christmas by Terry Spear

CJ Silver and his brothers have returned to Silver Town eager to reconnect with the pack. And with the she-wolf newcomers renovating the old Victorian Silver Town Hotel, it looks like the holidays are going to be very merry indeed.

Laurel MacTire and her sisters are excited to be living in a wolf-run town, but they have another motive- to solve the fifty-year-old mystery of their aunt's disappearance. When CJ gets a whiff of trouble brewing, his protective instincts kick in-now Laurel has a hotel opening to prepare for, a mystery to solve, and a brawny wolf shifter underfoot. Perhaps she should have resisted the temptation to kiss him so wickedly in the snow.

Get a sneak peek at Terry Spear's A Silver Wolf Christmas (available October 6, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

“You found a body.”

Her words felt like an accusation and hit him hard. Her gaze shifted to a point behind him and fearing where this would lead, he turned to see Laurel, her expression one of disbelief, lips parted, red brows slightly raised. Then she frowned. “You found a body? Whose? Where? When?”

She looked so pale he wanted to comfort her, but he suspected she'd be ready to slug him next when she learned just when and where they'd found the remains.

Downton Abbey 6x02 Recap: The Ladies Take Charge

Downton Abbey 6x02 Lady Mary and Tim Drew

Welcome back to Downton Abbey and what's sure to be another (final, sob!) year of delicious upstairs/downstairs drama. Come, let's see what Series 6 has in store for our beloved Crawley family, shall we?

Note for U.S. Viewers: Downton Abbey returns to PBS for Season 6 on January 3, 2016. We'll be repromoting Naz's recaps then, so feel free to wait to read them until that time to remain unspoiled.

Note: This post contains SPOILERS for all aired episodes of Downton Abbey, including last night's Series 6, Episode 2. Enjoy!

This week’s episode continued the overall theme set up last week: change. Change is coming to Downton, whether Robert and Mr. Carson like it or not. Of course, we’re not talking big, momentous, or calamitous change. It’s just small enough to fit in our Downton world without rocking the great estate off its foundation.

First Look: Julie Anne Long’s The Legend of Lyon Redmond (September 29, 2015)

The Legend of Lyon Redmond by Julie Anne Long

Julie Anne Long 
The Legend of Lyon Redmond (Pennroyal Green #11)
Avon / September 29, 2015 / $7.99 print, $5.99 digital

Bound by centuries of bad blood, England’s two most powerful families maintain a veneer of civility . . . until the heir to the staggering Redmond fortune disappears, reviving rumors of an ancient curse: a Redmond and an Eversea are destined to fall disastrously in love once per generation.

Rumor has it she broke Lyon Redmond’s heart. But while many a man has since wooed the dazzling Olivia Eversea, none has ever won her—which is why jaws drop when she suddenly accepts a viscount’s proposal. Now London waits with bated breath for the wedding of a decade . . . and wagers on the return of an heir.

It was instant and irresistible, forbidden . . . and unforgettable. And Lyon—now a driven, dangerous, infinitely devastating man—decides it’s time for a reckoning. As the day of her wedding races toward them, Lyon and Olivia will decide whether their love is a curse destined to tear their families apart . . . or the stuff of which legends are made.

The repercussions of the doomed romance between Olivia Eversea and Lyon Redmond have hung over their families and all ten of the previous books in the Pennyroyal Green series. The star-crossed lovers of feuding families met in secret, knowing their families would disapprove, and when the inevitable breakup occurred, Lyon left the country with no word to his family since, leaving them grieving and devastated. Olivia turned into a do-good-ing ice princess whose family continually worry over her emotional well-being.
