True Love

Now that I've got my feet wet in the blogsphere, let's talk about something on which I can wax lyrical for hours - books.

A couple of weeks ago, I read Kathleen Kane's This Time For Keeps. I've read my share of time-travel romances but I'd rank this among one of the best. I was hooked in the first few pages - when the heroine died via an accidental 'bowling ball' incident - I kid you not. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read.

However, my favorite time-travel book of all time is Jude Deveraux's Remembrance. There's just something about the story of lovers who are literally one soul split in two, curses and the power of true love that gets me every time. It's probably why I love The Princess Bride as well, though I've only ever seen the movie.

Hey Nalini

I know I should look this up myself but I'm feeling lazy. Is Kathleen Kane a Maureen Child pseudonym? I must admit I've not read a lot of time travels -- apart from Outlander, which I loved. Maybe I should remedy that.

Bron, I just googled Maureen and you're right! How could I not have known that??? Thanks for ameliorating my ignorance ;)
