Read an Excerpt

He was going down. The instrument panel was a maze of wildly flashing numbers and lights, and the cockpit was spinning like a merry-go-round gone mad. He didn't need the scream of warning bells to tell him he was in trouble. He didn't need the insistent red blip on his computer screen to tell him the trouble was big. He'd known that the moment he'd seen the void.

Swearing, clamping down on his panic, he struggled with the controls, using one hand to shove the lever forward for full power. The vehicle bucked and shuddered, fighting the gravitational pull. The Gs hit him like a wall. All around him metal screamed against metal.

"Hold together, baby," he managed to say as his lips stretched back over his teeth. The floor near his feet ripped open in a jagged line three inches long. "Hold together, you son of a—"

He jammed hard due east, swearing again when it seemed that no matter how cleverly he maneuvered he and his ship would be sucked into the hole.

The cockpit lights went out, leaving only the whirl of kaleidoscopic colors from the instrument panel. His ship went into a spiral, tumbling end over end like a stone fired from a slingshot. Now the light was white, hot and brilliant. Instinctively he threw up an arm to shield his eyes. The sudden crushing pressure on his chest left him helpless to do more than gasp for breath.

Briefly, before he lost consciousness, he remembered that his mother had wanted him to be a lawyer. But he'd just had to fly.

When he came to he was no longer spiraling—he was in a screaming free-fall. A glance at his instruments showed him only that they were damaged, the numbers racing backward. A new force had him plastered back against his seat, but he could see the curve of the earth.

Knowing he could pass out again at any moment, he lunged forward to knock the throttle back and turn the ship over to the computer. It would, he knew, scan for an unpopulated area, and if God was in His heaven the crash control in the old bucket would still be functional.

Maybe, just maybe, he'd live to see another sunrise. And how bad could practicing law be?

He watched the world rush toward him, blue and green and beautiful. The hell with it, he thought. Flying a desk would never be like this.

Libby stood on the porch of the cabin and watched the night sky boil. The wicked slices of lightning and the blowing curtain of rain were the best show in town. Even though she was standing under the overhang, her hair and her face were wet. Behind her, the lights in the cabin glowed a warm, cozy yellow. The next boom of thunder made her grateful she'd set out candles and kerosene lamps.

But the light and warmth didn't lure her back. Tonight she preferred the chill and the crashing power that was barreling through the mountains.

    Absolutely magical

    This story was so captivating. It was my very first Nora Roberts novel and also the first novel I read straight through that wasn't a part of an assigned for school. I was 16, I believe. I'm 22 now. I loved every minute of it and find myself still sighing, even to this day, over the worldwind time expanding love shared throughout the stories. This is surely one of my favorite books of all time.

    True Escapism

    I wasn't too sure I'd like this, but trusted Nora and her talents. I was drawn into these chrarachters and enjoyed her toying with the future..guess it must be that 'Robb' influence. A great fun read that is just right to help you forget a long day at work and take you into the dimensions of love, challenges, fate, and the unknown. Makes me want to travel to her next novel...wish there was another book to see how their children's lives were affected. But you never know....Expect nothing and be delicously satisfied.

    AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN!

    What a wonderful story! Nora Roberts has written a book that is both fresh and exciting. I am always pleased when Ms. Roberts writes books with a little different twist and spin. 'Time and Again' is such a book, and as Ms. Roberts puts it, 'Just for fun.' You will be surprised and delighted when you read about the Hornblower brothers, their adventures with time travel, and their encounters with Libby and Sunny, two ladies who change the borhter's lives forever in the most interesting ways. What a wonderful gem of a book. Are there any more Hornblowers in the future?

    Relaxing to read - a lovely vacation from the news...

    During today's national terrorism crisis , it is nice to have a novel to read that is a nice diversion , but not totally a comedy either. Still a serious book , this one was a nice light trip into the future . I have enjoyed all of the Nora Roberts and J.D.Robb novels that I have read in the past year.

    Becoming a convert to more romance

    Since I've read other novels, mainstream as well as the occasional romance, I was expecting the usual 'him and her together together happily ever after' deal, but instead I couldn't put the book down for one minute! Surely after reading this book I'm going for the next!
