SHE'S GOT THE SIGHT
For museum curator Jillian Talbot, her ability to see an object's history is her little secret.

REVIEW: This was actually a bit out of the normal for romantic suspense that I’ve read. In a way, the whole time I was reading it I was thinking Indiana Jones meets When Harry Met Sally. Out of Time is packed full of non-stop action that has you gripping the pages and turning them as fast as you can. The romantic elements were just right and provided just the right amount of build within Jillian and Simon. I loved the development of characters and the great twist at the end. I can see this piece turning into a series and would definitely pick up the next books if that were the case. The only downside I had to the piece was at times the writing bothered me to a degree. It seemed like there were a lot of extra words but overall, it doesn’t distract from the story too much. I did enjoy this and found my Sunday whooshed away in this fantastic piece. It’s one you want to read. Go get it now. Four out of five stars.

Thanks to the publisher, Grand Central Publishing, and NetGalley for the chance to read this. To unearth the secret of ancient civilizations, a museum curator must team up with a tomb raider who’s stolen the history she’s dictated to protect. To beat the other tomb raiders, they’ll have to partner up—because suddenly Jillian and Simon are in a race just to stay alive. The treasure hunt kept me intrigued, but the romantic tension kept me up late! Simon Bonner is one of the most unique heroes I have read in a very long time, and I won't soon forget him! I loved the intense attraction between Simon and Jillian and really enjoyed their banter. If you've been wishing for a light Romantic Suspense with plenty of action and steamy heat, then you’ve find it within this story. This was a fast and fun read: a good mix between a love story and an adventure/thriller story. I liked the characters and I am looking forward to reading [book:Sight Unseen|427933] which precedes this book; it is Raven Callahan’s story - Jillian's sister.

Harlem¿s Linden Museum curator Jillian Talbot inherited her psychic gift, but always believed no one outside her family knew of their skills. Her ability to see an object or person¿s past benefits her work at the museum. -------------- Once an artifact stealer, Simon Bonner never planned to return to field work. However, his tomb raiding rival, a severely wounded Jackson informs him that his ex wife Celina is being used as a hostage to force him back into robbing tombs. His assignment to obtain an ancient crystal lens and abduct Jillian, who the blackmailer believes is the seer that a prophecy claims she can find buried archeological booty. Apparently the extortionist has ruthless Kesel working the abduction too as Simon barely keeps Jillian from being snatched. He persuades her to join with him as they play a ten days maximum game of cat and mice in Mexico with one known deadly opponent and several unknown adversaries who change the rules to fit their requirement of win at all costs to others.-------------------- OUT OF TIME is a fabulous romantic suspense with a touch of the paranormal. The lead couple is a terrific pairing of opposites as she sees the goodness in everyone and everything while he finds everyone evil and everything ugly. Their differences make for a strong thriller as they perceive their opponents differently as Simon thinks she is naive and Jillian believes he is cynical. Fans will appreciate this fine psychic tomb raiding thriller and seek out SIGHT UNSEEN starring Jillian¿s thief of a sister.----------------- Harriet Klausner
