And I'm not even entirely sure it actually exists. It was one of those things where I'd read the snippet in the back of another book and it peaked my interest, but this was some years ago now and I've never been able to find it (or figure out which book I'd read it in).

Anyway, it was a time-travel story and from what I can remember the girl was contemporary and pregnant and in labour and stumbled across the guy, who had time-travelled from the twenties and then was going to drive her to the hospital? Does it ring any bells with anyone? Seriously, it's been driving me nuts for like four years.

Thanks so much!

 

ETA: It's totally Here & Now by Constance O'Day-Flannery. I even checked the "Look Inside This Book" on Amazon.com, and I own at least three books that had the sneak peek in them. How I never found it, I don't know. But much thanks to Mary C K.

Found this on a list of time travels.  It sounds like the book and there are several on the site.  Actually I might get one myself!

 

Here and and Now  by Constance O'Day Flannery

A woman alone, just weeks before she is to deliver a new life into this world, Suzanne McDermott is determined to remain strong and accept whatever the future might bring. But she never dreams it will bring her ... the past.

The stranger who washes up on the New Jersey shore is badly injured -- and unprepared for the world into which he is about to walk. For the last thing Charles Garrity knew, it was the Roaring Twenties, and his life's ambitions were about to be realized. Yet a beautiful woman is telling him it is nearly eight decades past his time! Suzanne has rescued him and has...opened his eyes and soul to new wonders. Now it ishe who must save her -- heart and his own -- with the power of something neither of them has ever known:real love.

That sounds like a really good book.  I am going to have to get a copy.
