Good read. Distant future time travelers are trying to save the future by fixing the past. The hero [an archaeologist] and heroine [a museum director] are modern era people enrolled in the project because of their specialized knowledge... The time traveler and an intern at the museum are part of the project [and the hero/heroine of the next book] which requires a trip to Pompeii on the day the volcano erupts. The book has good action, interesting characters, and believable premises. Order is not extremely important - I read the second one first and it wasn't a real problem.
Felt like a first-time author. Somehow did not feel as "smooth" as a more experienced author might make it. I did not "get into" the characters as quickly as I do with some authors, though they grew on me. The time travel angle was different.
There is currently no summary online. Here is the one from the back of the book:
"It was all about to go up in smoke. As a candidate for the directorship of the Dallas Museum of History, Mackinzie Cates was thrilled to acquire the Pompeii exhibit. But it came with a string: Rick Mason, the love of her life, the sexiest archaeologist since Indiana Jones. He'd left her with a memory of lovemaking hotter than lava, but he couldn't have returned at a worse time; her raging libido was making Mack see things -- like the strange bald beauty prowling the museum and casting lascivious glances at Rick; or that moving statue. Next thing she knew, Rick would be telling her there was a conspiracy; that he was possessed; that he wanted to marry her but that first they had to travel through time to save the world and a pair of doomed lovers!"
