Chasing Silver by Jamie Craig

Chasing Silver

ISBN# 978-0-8095-7201-4

The last thing Remy Capra remembers is grabbing a handful of coins just before she fell through a window and ran for her life from Kirsten Henryk, the cop who wants to see her dead. Now she’s in Los Angeles, a far cry from the streets of Washington DC, and she has no idea how she got there. Stranger still is the fact that she appears to have traveled back in time.

Nathan Pierce is an ex-LAPD cop working as a bounty hunter. He’s chasing a local thug when Remy drops in out of thin air and causes him to lose Tian once again. It’s clear that the injured woman needs help, so Nathan offers it. Now they have double the trouble and the coin that somehow plays a part in Remy’s appearance, the Silver Maiden, is now at the center of it all. If their skills are enough to see them through, there’s still a threat that remains. There’s just no telling what the coin has in store for anyone involved.

Chasing Silver is an intriguing time-travel romance. Remy’s silent wish is answered when she lands at Nathan’s feet, and Nathan may have finally found a woman who doesn’t come with ulterior motives. Jamie Craig is a fantastic writing team, and while this isn’t their first book together, it is their print debut. The storyline is fun, brimming with action and well-paced. Remy and Nathan are characters whose strengths compliment each other while on the job and adds to the sizzling sex scenes. I look forward to more from these authors in the future.

Sounds pretty good. I like the time travel thing - a book is always good with time travel. :)

I haven't read a time travel book in AGES, I'll definitely be adding this one to my list. Thanks, Kimberly!

T.C. - I think what I really liked about it was that Remy traveled to the past, but it was to 2008 so it wasn't a historical. :)

Wendy - There don't seem to be very many showing up these days so it was a nice change. Happy to add to your list! *grin*

Isn't that great? I didn't realize how much I was missing the time-travel reads. I'll have another one to post soon too. :)
