Overview

Time travel romance is not the same thing as sci-fi romance, though some stories may be set in an imagined future; it is romantic fiction set in various different eras, usually from around the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries. A woman may fall asleep in Central Park in the present to wake up in the arms of a Scottish laird in the sixteenth century.

The Mammoth Book of Time Travel Romance contains 25 stories of adventure and love; settings include medieval Scotland, sixteenth-century England, the nineteenth-century 'Wild West'. Some stories are set in the present and a few in the future. Stories include an Elizabethan nobleman whisked into the present day, a troubled young woman who lands in the sixteenth century able to break a curse of lost love.

Includes stories from: Nina Bangs, Jude Deveraux, Sandra Hill, Linda Howard, Lynn Kurland, Karen Marie Moning, and many more.

Im a big time travel fan, the stories that I have read so far are good, but they are very short stories and it wasnt clear in the description.

When I purchased the book, I wasn't sure what to expect. I really enjoyed the stories, but they alluded to a more in-depth story. Still, I enjoyed the book and have purchased Scottich Romand and Irish Romance too.

If you like time travel romances (and I am one who does) then this is the book for you. It's difficult to rate plot since each plot is unique to the author. There's a lot of romance, some sexy men and it definitely is escapism. The stories range from medieval times, to Scotland, to westerns, to contemporary to futuristic. Some are downright strange and others touching and romantic.

Meh. While certainly living up to it's claim of being mammoth, this collection was also overwhelmingly mediocre. I was left with the overwhelming conviction that this genre (time travel romances) is not one that lends itself well to short stories. Ninety percent of these stories were unsatisfyingly abrupt, with very little of what makes a good novel of this genre (Diana Gabaldon's Outlander, for instance) so enjoyable: a chance to experience the vertigo and turmoil that comes from being dumped in a time not your own. Many of the stories were just to brief to have the room for such character development; oftentimes the main character was shocked by, and then came to terms with, their time travel in the space of a few pages, if not a few paragraphs. The one standout in this collection was "Iron and Hemlock", by Autumn Dawn: the characters were original and interesting, and the setting was certainly interesting: a fae woman, so destroyed by her husband's death, transforms herself into a monstrosity of a house so that she can continue to protect and care for her offspring (in this case, by transporting a suitable wife for her great-grandson back in time) even while removing herself from her own all-encompassing grief. Plus, there were gargoyles and griffins. A story I would love to see developed into a full novel, but as for the rest...mediocre at best.

Really wished that the lenght of the book was listed.. it is 343 pages... and with 21 books, it should say Mammoth book of Short Stories on Time Travel Romance. I HAVE A MONTHY budget of 10.00 and am really bummed that I wasted my money on such a short, limited book. THE STORES ARE FUN AND WELL WRITTEN , they just end right when the story syarts to get good.... I even searched a gew of the authors to see if they had complete stories for sell, but I couldn't find any... a liitle sad

Excellent book if you are looking for some quick reading! Good writing and some refreshing storylines with different combinations of past, present and future time travel. I just wish that the stories were a little longer. Almost every single one ended abruptly just when the plot started to get most interesting.
