*[Blog Tour Review & Giveaway] Christmas Past by Susanna Fraser

Christmas Past
Time-traveling PhD student Sydney Dahlquist’s first mission sounded simple enough—spend two weeks in December 1810 collecting blood samples from the sick and wounded of Wellington’s army, then go home to modern-day Seattle and Christmas with her family. But when her time machine breaks, stranding her in the past, she must decide whether to sacrifice herself to protect the timeline or to build a new life—and embrace a new love—two centuries before her time.

Rifle captain Miles Griffin has been fascinated by the tall, beautiful "Mrs. Sydney" from the day he met her caring for wounded soldiers. When he stumbles upon her time travel secret on Christmas Eve, he vows to do whatever it takes to seduce her into making her home in his present—by his side.

I've mentioned time and time again that I'm not a big novella or short story fan but I'll let you in on a little secret, the ones I'm almost always guaranteed to enjoy center around the holidays. Which is why I signed up for this tour.
I really liked this 48 page time travel Christmas romance (try saying that 10 times). I had a free half hour and was able to knock this one out quickly, and I was glad to give Susanna Fraser a try (finally) and thought that this little novella was  a great introduction to her writing style.
I love time travel romances and of course I love regency romances with dashing heroes so I really enjoyed reading Miles and Sydney's love story. I thought the way that Fraser mixed the time travel and romance bit together was very well done, especially given the length of the story and I was really impressed plus, I liked how the romance between the main characters developed.
Overall, for a short story, this one is one of the best ones I've read and I loved the Christmas element added into the storyline. I'm a sucker for a holiday romance and this one has me not only wanting to read more Christmas love stories, but more stories by Susanna Fraser.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quick, well written time travel Christmas romances between a contemporary woman and a regency hero just in time for the holidays.

  1. That cover is gorgeous! I would love to go somewhere and be able to wear such a beautiful gown on the arms of a handsome man. Thanks for the giveaway and Merry Christmas.

  2. This sounds like a sweet holiday romance. :)

  3. Time Travel and Christmas. Hmm. Wouldn't have guessed that from the cover but I'm in! I'm a total Christmas book junkie :) I read a really great novella from their Flaunt line recently. Glad to hear some of the other novellas/shorts are just as good!
