Romance writer Alaina Costanza has given up on dreams and fairy tales. Then one stormy night, she is suddenly plunged back in time to the wild, Western world of her newest novel. Disoriented and disbelieving, she is kidnapped by her own character, a ruthless outlaw known only as Killian. But this "dream" is all too real. Once wisecracking and invincible, Alaina is now a mother desperate to return to the child she left behind-one hundred years in the future. Yet Alaina and Killian will discover a love too magnificent to last a single lifetime. But for the sake of Alaina's child, they must risk it all and fight for a future that depends on lightning striking...twice.

I have read most of Hannah's books, and this one is a huge disappointment. It's fluff and not much else. I reached the end only by skimming pages and pages of soppy, unbelievable filler on what a very young girl might write about romance. Hannah was 35 when she wrote this...she is now 57. I think that she would have written this book so much better if she had written it in the last five years. I might sound like I am bashing her, but her book The Nightingale is in my top five of the best books that I have ever read by any author. And I like a lot of her other books.
Although 35 isn't exactly youthful, I am chalking this fail up to inexperience.
