Peek Inside Christmas Past

Time-traveling Sydney's first mission sounded easy—spend two weeks in 1810 collecting blood samples from the sick and wounded of Wellington’s army, then go home to modern-day Seattle. 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. Rifle captain Miles 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.

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.

Praise

"While I enjoyed the characters, the dialogue, and the internal struggles, I also loved reading about the time machine itself. For me, the mix of science and romance was well-balanced, giving me a greater appreciation for what Sydney was losing by choosing to stay." - Written Love Reviews

3.5- "Come with me. It's Christmas." Stars.

Another Quick seasonal read from the House of Entangled.

Sydney and Miles' interlude in 1810 was easy to immerse yourself in, time-travel told in under 50 pages is never going to get too technical now is it. But the story was sweet and the couple likeable... ...more

I’m not sure why, but it’s lovely to get your hands (or eyes) on a book that ties into what’s going on in real life. I love reading seasonal books and there certainly isn’t any shortage of good Christmas romances that come out around this time.

Christmas Past adds in a more attractive facet to me... ...more

Love time-travel romance & the holiday season?

When it comes to time travel romances there are a lot of places and times I'm just not interested. That almost kept me from reading CHRISTMAS PAST but I'm really glad it didn't. While simplistic and plenty easy to pick apart when it comes to the... ...more

***Received from Entangled Publishing for an honest review***
(This is a short story/novella. This review is not based on story length but story content as length has very little to do with how much I enjoy a book.)

I've read a few time travel romances but I can't say I've read one that actually in... ...more

By Kimberly December 13, 2013

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... ...more

By Nancy December 17, 2013

I loved the premise of this story. Intelligent woman from one century falls for understanding man from another. If there was any fault it was that Miles accepts everything a bit too easily.

As readers of romance, we do expect a happy ending and got one. As one other review said, Sydney did seem to... ...more

It was a very good short story. My only wish was that it was written into a longer book! I would've loved getting more background on the characters involved and had their attraction more drawn out.

About the author

Susanna Fraser

Susanna Fraser Susanna Fraser wrote her first novel in fourth grade. It starred a family of talking horses who ruled a magical land. In high school she started, but never finished, a succession of tales of girls who were just like her, only with long, naturally curly and often unusually colored hair, who, perhaps because of the hair, had much greater success with boys than she ever did. Along the way she read her hometown library’s entire collection of Regency romance, fell in love with the works of Jane Austen, and discovered in Patrick O’Brian’s and Bernard Cornwell’s novels another side of the opening decades of the 19th century. When she started to write again as an adult, she knew exactly where she wanted to set her books. Her writing has come a long way from her youthful efforts, but she still gives her heroines great hair. Susanna grew up in rural Alabama. After high school she left home for the University of Pennsylvania and has been a city girl ever since. She worked in England for a year after college, using her days off to explore history from ancient stone circles to Jane Austen’s Bath. Susanna lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and daughter. When not writing or reading, she goes to baseball games, sings alto in a local choir and watches cooking competition shows
