Do you like time travel and romance? Here's one for you!

Susan Squires - A Twist in Time

An expert in Leonardo da Vinci's works, Lucy Rossano recognizes the centuries-old time machine da Vinci said he built the moment she sees it in a Stanford lab. Fascinated in spite of the danger, she uses her knowledge to go back in time-landing in the middle of a fierce battle in tenth-century Britain. Panicked, she escapes to modern-day San Francisco, bringing something back with her: a seductive, fiercely intelligent Viking named Galen.

The presence of this enigmatic, devastatingly sexy stranger is just one of the new complications in Lucy's life. There are others who want to harness the time machine's power for treacherous ends, and they need Lucy to do it. Galen becomes first her protector, then the lover she's always dreamed of. But danger is drawing closer and time is running out. For Galen and Lucy, it's now…or forever.

About Susan

Susan Squires grew up among the giant redwoods of California. She thought she was being practical by changing her major in college from theater to English literature. But, immersed in a PhD. Program, she slowly realized that none of her graduating friends had work. So she dropped out to take an actual paying job in the business world. UCLA gave her a Master's degree as a consolation prize.

But the lure of writing was too bad to resist for long. Now an executive in a Fortune 500 company, one of her many mid-life crises resulted in a return to her love of writing. Her novel, Danegeld, had already been purchased by Dorchester by the time she accepted a Golden Heart for Best Unpublished Manuscript from Romance Writers of America. Part of a five book contract, it was the first of an eclectic group of historical and contemporary paranormal stories known for intensity and failing to follow the rules. Body Electric was named by Publisher's Weekly one of the ten most influential paperbacks of 2002, for blending romance, science-fiction and thrillers. Book List compared No More Lies to the works of Robin Cook and Michael Crichton rather than to other romances, but it was also a Rita finalist for best paranormal romance by Romance Writers of America.

Susan still uses tales of romance and adventure to escape budgets and projects. She now writes for St. Martin's Press. The first of three sensuous vampire romances set in the Regency period will come out in May, 2005. She researches and writes her books at the beach in Southern California, supported by two Belgian Sheepdogs, a warmblood mare and a wonderful husband named Harry who writes occult mysteries as H.R. Knight.
