Summary

Summary

Four New York Times bestselling authors breach the boundaries of time and reality in these paranormal tales of suspense, intrigue, and out-of-this world passion...

Futuristic lieutenant Eve Dallas ends up in a supernatural showdown with a seductive vampire criminal in J. D. Robb's "Eternity in Death."

In Mary Blayney's "Amy and the Earl's Amazing Adventure," an ancient coin whisks an American woman and a modern-day earl into the past--and into each other's arms.

When a city girl visits a Scottish castle in Ruth Ryan Langan's "Timeless," she is thrust into a romance with a mighty Highland laird.

And Mary Kay McComas gives an unhappy wife a magic-carpet ride into an alternate reality to show her the grass isn't always greener in "On the Fringe."

Publisher's Weekly Review

Robb (aka Nora Roberts) is indeed the headliner, but this all-new four-novella anthology definitely doesn't suffer from "standout single" syndrome-this one's all killer, no filler. In Robb's opener, a courageous female cop with a troubled past clashes with a bloodthirsty, unnaturally powerful mystery man who promises his enthralled victims immortality: charismatic con artist, or much worse? Blayney follows with the story of an enigmatic old coin that transports an American tourist and an oddly aristocratic bartender into a Regency-era adventure. In Langan's, another unsuspecting American time-traveler stumbles into romance with a 15th-century Scottish warlord who believes she's his kidnapped wife. And in McComas's, a bored housewife takes a magic carpet ride to an alternate universe do-over of her marriage. Though they don't always keep a straight face, occasionally tipping from fantasy into farce-for instance, a canny medieval Scottish ruler blithely accepting a 21st-century designer pant suit as regulation female barbarian dress-such lapses are minor; the biggest fault readers will find is that these intriguing characters are taken away so quickly (especially in Blayney's frustratingly rushed resolution).
