Does anyone know any good romance novels involving time travel? I'd be interested in reading some. I have in mind someone from our time period traveling back to victorian or medieval times, somehow.

I haven't read these (way too thick!) but a lot swear by Outlander and that series by Gabaldon

I like Karen Marie Moning's highlander series but has some paranormal/magic in those aside from just the time travel aspect

A Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux has a knight travel forward then the heroine travels back to his time then back again

Sandra Hill has vikings but they pretty much travel forward to the present but a few I think go back in time at least briefly

Forever His by Shelly Thacker is the story of a contemporary woman who travels back to Medieval times. I don't read a lot of T-T books and didn't realize this was one when I picked it up but I love Medieval hist/roms so decided to read it and it's on my keeper shelf - mainly because it ties-in with a couple of other her other books (I think those are straight hist/roms).

Not Victorian or Medieval, but another favorite T-T is Susan Macias' (Susan Mallery) Courtney's Cowboy - as the title implies, it's a Western but the twist is that both the H/H travel back to the 1870s and having to learn to survive in an era totally alien to them strengthens their love and their marriage. Also on my keeper shelf, but I'm a huge Susan Mallery fan and hate to part with any of her books.

I'll follow this thread as I'm slowly getting back into T-T and paranormals after being away for a very long time.

Janet Chapman's highlander series.   Karen Marie Moning's highlander series.   Definitely Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.  Jude Deveraux has one.  Lynn Kurland wrote a few.    Have you looked at the All About Romance website to see their list?

Son of the Morning by Linda Howard, FYI the majority of the book is contemporary, the time travel doesn't get going until the last 1/3 or 1/4 of the book.

If you haven't read Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux, just read it .  I think this is one of the best romance books I have ever read.  I laughed and cried and bought a new hardback copy for my keeper shelf.

Just FYI Knight is Shining Armor seems to be one of those books where while a lot of people love it an equal number seem to hate it.  I happen to be one of the one's who hate it - it totally put me off Jude Deveraux.

Janice Bennett wrote a few time travel regency romances I enjoyed.

The Door Ajar and Time's Tapestryby Joan Overfield  - 2 connected time travel regencies.

Tempest in Time, Waltz in Time and Timeswept Bride by Eugenia Riley.

After the  Storm by Susan Sizemore - a medieval time travel.

Here and Then and There and Now by Linda Lael Miller - 2 connected stories set in the American West in 1892.

Wings of Time by Carol Duncan Perry. early 20th century.

Time Was and Times Change by Nora Roberts.

One More Valentine by Anne Stuart.  Early 20th century.

Lynn Kurland has a number of time travel books that I enjoyed.

Not sure if anyone mentioned this website but I found it helpful

http://www.timetravelromancewriters.com/

It is great you can search the time period,  the character type, by hero/heroine,  author, series

and if you want the character going back in time, into the future. 

Example:

Time Travel: Future to Modern Day
Time Travel: Future to Past
Time Travel: Historical Time Period to Past
Time Travel: Modern Day to Future
