Overview

A classic contemporary romance with a time travel twist by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay…

The Portals of Time trilogy follows three women who travel back from the 26th century to right the wrongs of society today so that humankind can continue to exist. Journey with them as they fight for both the future and the men they unexpectedly come to love. These stories contain heart-wrenching emotions, biting social commentary and unique futuristic elements!

In JUST IN TIME, Dorian Masters must save the life of research scientist Jess Cromwell by preventing his murder in five months. Cromwell’s work would eventually set the standard for eradicating all carbon emissions. But Dorian has to find the assassin first, while Jess’s brother, Luke, cynical New York cop and exasperating man, seems determined to stand in her way. Unaware of her background, Luke questions her suitability as a bodyguard and challenges her on the mistakes she makes about everyday things, including how she talks. Even so, the stakes are high and together they race against time to save Jess.

For more futuristic romance and paranormal romance, look for this rest of the books in this time travel romance series: PERFECT TIMING and ANOTHER TIME.

Reader Praise for JUST IN TIME:

“The characters were real and engaging. I laughed out loud several times…It was clear, simple, but deeply complex in human emotions.”

“I enjoyed every minute! I found the characters very interesting and enjoyed the storyline. I can't wait to read the rest of Portals of Time series!”

“I've become attached to these three protagonists and will read the second and third books to see them through to their HEAs.”

“A very well written story that will make you laugh at the interactions of Luke and Dorian. It's also intriguing, but most of all...You will be smiling with every turn of events.”

“At the beginning, you will wonder where these women come from, as they keep butchering the English language, but it becomes a cute part of who they are.”

“If you suspend belief, as I did, this is a very cute, very enjoyable book, and by the last page, you are wanting more.”

Loved the futuristic ensight.

188 pages. Liked the concept but thought the environmental issues lacked balance. Constantly blaming an era for ruining the planet when significant technology is not even yet available and what is is not affordable, felt very heavy handed. Yes we absolutely need to do better and more! Just look at litter, landfills, and lack of recycling. I have lived all over the US and have yet to reside in a community where recycling was active at the curb. Like another reader I felt beaten over the head by zealousy. Won't seek out books two and three. Even though I'd like to know how the lives of the three women turn out.

I enjoyed the story of time travel. Held my interest throughout the story.

While I enjoyed the basic plot of the book, I got very frustrated by all the "ruining the planet" messages. Yes, I believe we should be good stewards of earth's resources, but I'd prefer not to be lectured about it from a romance story. That said, I did enjoy the basic storyline. I probably will not read the other stories in the trilogy.

I couldn't get over the typos and the timeline problems (i.e. 6 days does not equate a couple of weeks, 34 days is not the same as a few months). The premise of the story was interesting, but the writing was rather bland with nearly non-existent action.  I won't be recommending the book or series to friends.

This book was difficult for me to engage in. I usually like sci-fi type romances, but this one didn't pull me in. The writing and the story is good, but maybe this particular writer's style is not a good match for me.

At the beginning, you will wonder where these women come from, as they keep butchering the English language, but it becomes a cute part of who they are. They come to Earth to save the life of a scientist, whose research, and life, is in danger. He and his wife have been unable to have a child for many years, but these women seem to bring hope to that issue as well. Sub-stories are an inter-species love affairs between the other 2 alien women and human men. This is a bit different, because they are alien, but seem to have the same body parts as we do. And the women, never having had emotions involved in their lives, have a confusing time understanding "love". If you suspend belief, as I did, this is a very cute, very enjoyable book, and by the last page, you are wanting more.

Before u decide to read or not to read. Was a different concept combining a bit of time travel with romance, danger and varied cast of characters. Read it in couple hours, so consider it an easy, entertaining read that was free;)
