A TWIST IN TIME
Picking up where Time for Eternity ended, A Twist in Time features a new heroine who owns the book written by Leonardo Da Vinci that holds the secrets to the time machine. While the hero goes through quite a transformation, the heroine stays pretty much the same. Rich with historical elements in just the right places, it would have been delightful to see some more of the paranormal elements Squires is also noted for.
Viking Galen is fighting in a fierce battle when suddenly he's in a time machine with a fiery-haired woman named Lucy. On the run from men who want to get their hands on the knowledge Lucy holds about the time machine, and also healing from battle, Galen and Lucy forge a bond that lasts a lifetime and fills him with the powers he was destined to have -- an intimate knowledge of the Earth and all living creatures. But before they can fulfill their destiny, Galen must protect her and earn her love. (ST. MARTIN'S, Mar., 352 pp., $7.99)
