Overview

*Original title: OUT OF THIS WORLD MARRIAGE

The woman he found in the woods out back was....not from around here....

Dr. Thomas Duffy had put the odd happenings of his childhood off to a vivid imagination. The odd buzzing sensation in his head that would wake him from a sound sleep. The odd lights in the sky. And the night he sneaked out to rescue an imaginary girl, lost in the woods behind his family’s farm.

But when the history he’d convinced himself was just a dream repeats itself, and his new midnight trek into the woods leads him to a grown up version of the same girl, he has no choice but to admit it was for real.

Janella is stranded in a strange world not her own, sought after by mysterious men in black, and completely alone. What’s a simple country doctor to do?

Fans of the TV Series ROSWELL, and the films STAR MAN and MEN IN BLACK will love this sexy, funny, suspenseful paranormal romance.

    This story has well developed characters that you come to feel you know. You'll find yourself giving advice and cheering them on, and gasping when there is danger... Oops, I don't want to give anything away! LOL The plot and story line is unusual and intriguing, making this book a real page-turner.
    Ms. Shane never disappoints us! Another 'gem' in her treasure chest of wonderful stories.

    What a nice surprise! I wasn't sure about this one, however it took me very little time to thoroughly devour and enjoy this book. I loved Janella's snarky attitude, the chemistry between the characters, and the whole premise of the story.

    Characters are not believable

    This is an MD who acts like he couldnt get his GED without cramming for it. He constantly misreads behavior including his own. I know its about a third encounter and not supposed to be reality; but, really, it has to be a little more believable...

    This is yet another book I loved from Maggie Shayne. This is not my usual style of romance, as I prefer Gothic romances,but this book was phenomenal. I recommend it to anyone. I enjoyed it and was very involved in the characters also. Happy reading.
