One delectable cowboy....to go please!!!!

This book drew me in from the first page! I haven't read a lot of time travel romance books but now I'm thinking maybe I should put more on my list! First we meet Jessica Dempsey. She is a modern day woman who is in the middle of dealing with her own grief and loss when she is in a car accident and the impossible happens....she is catapulted back in time. She finds herself in the wild west. 1800's style!! This is where her adventure begins. She meets sheriff Wade Truman under circumstances that are less then ideal. It seems she has taken on the name Junebug Jess and within hours of her arriving, she has the reputation of a rough and rowdy gunslinger. Truman is one smokin HOT lawman! ¿ He has a certain cowboy charm that would make any modern day woman swoon. He seem to be dangerous, mysterious and ohh soo sensual! Truman and Jess both feel a connection to each other. And before you know it, they set the pages ablaze with their unstoppable passion. *winks* This was truly a fun and entertaining read for me. I absolutely love Truman and Jessica. I loved watching their attraction and trust grow throughout the book. Jessica is a bit unusual in Truman's eyes. And he knows that she is keeping something from him. But he feels a fierce protectiveness towards her and finds himself doing everything he can to keep her out of harms way. Truman is hard around the edges and Jessica knows he doesn't want to get too close. But she can see the soft, caring and loving side of him and she can't seem to put out the fire that burns for him. If you like time travel themed books, then this is a great book to pick up!! It's a branding hot read with an incredibly scorching hot Hero ;) It's fun and entertaining and it will keep you flipping the pages until there are no more left!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book!!

So, so

I thought this was contemporary romance, so my jaw dropped when the heroine travels back in time to the Wild West after a car accident. I stopped reading and moved on to another book. Until I found myself without any book to read in my Nook and decided to give this one ...
I thought this was contemporary romance, so my jaw dropped when the heroine travels back in time to the Wild West after a car accident. I stopped reading and moved on to another book. Until I found myself without any book to read in my Nook and decided to give this one another chance. I actually enjoyed some chapters describing the love story between the heroine and the Sheriff, but the time travel thing was just too much and the ending, well... let's just say that you have to believe in miracles to digest it. Too much.

    Such a good read!!!

    Julianne Maclean never fails to deliver! As time travel novel set in the western era, it is not the typical time I like to read about but it was fantastic none the less!! Witty, suspenseful, romantic, dramatic, and steamy all in one!

    Awesome!!!

    This book is absolutely wonderful! I'm a romance novel junkie and this book is now in my top 10 favs! It was beautifully written and definitely worth a five star rating!

    I liked it.

    It was enjoyable. I too was taken back when I realized it was time travel, but I kept guessing how it would end. I of course expected a happy ending but I was wondering how it would happen. Time travel- weird. How else would it end.

    I love time travel romances, my all time favorite is Shelly Thac

    I love time travel romances, my all time favorite is Shelly Thacker's - Forever His, but this book lacked any sexual tension between the leads.  Additionally there were random moments when the author would start describing a scene where the characters would be in a threatening situation and instead of focusing on getting out of the situation they would start wondering about the other's eyes or hair.  It was out of place and would break the rhythm of the scene...very frustrating.

    Ending could have used a little more detail.
