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.
