3.0 out of 5 stars Never Love a Stranger 15 Jan 2011
By gismo
A story with a twist
The thought I'd try this as I got a Kindle for christmas. The story was a bit slow at first but the twist, I didn't see it coming.
The "love sence" where a bit over the top, and may be the author could have let your imagination do so the work.
I will keep this in my Archives but not sure if I would visit it again, who knows when I may want a bit of light reading again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual and heartwarming romance - Loved it. 29 May 2010
By meloco - Published on Amazon.com

When I first started reading this book I wasn't too sure about it. It started off like a lot of other time travel romances, you know way too handsome hero the heroine just can't resist even though she has no idea who he is or where he comes from. Well, didn't he have a few surprises up his sleeve, oh he wasn't wearing any, was he? I don't want to spoil the story for anyone else by revealing any of them, suffice to say it will keep you reading well into the night to reach the end of this incredible roller-coaster of a ride that takes you into the future, alternative reaiites and back into the past again, with plenty of steamy sex scenes and romantic interludes. Well written and researched. I'm buying a hard copy for my to keep shelf.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy time traveler 13 May 2010
By Carolyn Gwaltney - Published on Amazon.com
Ellen Fisher did a very good job with the whole time-travel plot. I'm not going to give a summary of it because I think this story is best experienced "cold." Overall this story gives a fresh spin on the time-traveling tale. I think the first half of the book is the stronger part (Fisher does a good job with making the reader believe the "newness" of the time period for the traveler, and some of that is very funny), but there is good world building in the second half and some interesting story twists. And as usual, I love Fisher's hero. She writes very good heroes!

I recommend Never Love a Stranger as a fun way to spend the afternoon.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Concept Collapses From Execution Problems 30 July 2010
By Tracy - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Since Annie Simpson's husband died a year ago, she's been living a lonely, boring life. At first it helped her heal, but now her days seem empty and lacking purpose. One night, however, Annie enters her kitchen and is stunned and scared to see a large, gorgeous, naked man standing there. Before she can flee or call the police, James convinces her he's not going to hurt her. When Annie finds out he has come back to the past to flee the group intent on killing him, Annie thinks he's insane...at first. Then she starts to believe. Horrified by the grim picture of the future that James has painted, one of slavery and butchery, she offers to help. She's drawn to James in a way she's never felt before, not even with her husband, and when James is near her, she can't help but feel alive. When the full scope of the truth comes out, however, the question of life becomes a hotly contested topic, and Annie's previous blind faith may result in the death of everything she holds dear.

Never Love a Stranger is a difficult book for me to review. I didn't like it, but I can appreciate what the author accomplished and what she was trying to accomplish. I think the concept of the book was good. It was an interesting plot and Fisher's vision for the future was pretty comprehensive and impressive. There were a lot of layers and deceptions, ill intents and heroic actions that blended together in an odd, yet compelling way. I can understand how some readers would find some of the revelations in this book to be disturbing, even though I'm not one of them. Yes, there were things in this book that were difficult to accept and not something you'd find in a traditional romance novel, but I found those aspects to add a sense of gritty realism to the motivations of the characters.

That realism was appreciated, especially as I found it so lacking in other aspects. I had significant issues with character action and dialogue from the very first page. I felt neither were very believable through the whole of the book, and I can't imagine anyone with a modicum of self preservation acting as Annie did when she first saw James. The dialogue between the characters was often heavy-handed, trite, or cliched, and very little of it felt organic to the characters or the situations they found themselves in. The characters themselves, especially James, were inconsistent throughout and James' personality and vernacular fluctuated between believable for his backstory and situation to bordering on absurd. Any time a character who has supposedly traveled back in time from over three hundred years into our future, and has been shown to be perplexed by the identity and function of something as pedestrian as a bath towel may lose a lot of cred as future-guy when he starts uttering such modern colloquialisms as "Go to hell."

I appreciated the author's intent, but this book is also beleaguered by a large schism that splits the book into two parts and turns a slightly common but basically harmless time traveler romance into a quagmire of scifi frustration and implausibility. I acknowledge that my preferences in reading lie elsewhere, so I don't want to appear hypercritical of issues that wouldn't please me if they'd been penned by Asimov himself, but I can't help but feel that the material and plot were larger than Fisher's ability to translate the ideas to the page. I hope that doesn't sound like harsh criticism, because I love that Fisher tried. I just don't think that there are many authors who can do it effectively and believably to begin with - time travel is literally littered with paradox and confusion, and defining an entire futuristic landscape in the span of half a book is a mighty task.

Had Fisher's ambition for this story stopped at overcoming the...er...intrinsic differences...between Annie and James, I think I would have been okay with it, but all told, it was too big a concept and handled with too little sophistication to be enjoyable for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Put it Down...! 16 July 2010
By Dee - Published on Amazon.com
I picked up this book on the strength of the synposis, and once I started reading it, I was hooked. There was a strong plot, a sympathetic hero, a gutsy heroine, and so many twists and turns to keep me enthralled that I read the entire thing in one night - and have re-read a couple of times since then.

The story was kept fresh throughout, and everytime I thought Annie & James had surmounted their challenges, there was something else for them to conquer. Definitely a nailbiter, and the love scenes were steamy and tender - always a winning combination.

I heartily recommend this to all lovers of romance and science-fiction; Ellen Fisher did a wonderful job with the time travel plot, which most other writers use as a crutch. I'll definitely be reading more from this intriguing author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique Twist on Time Travel Romance 29 May 2010
By M. P. McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought this book on impulse. I love time-travel romance books, and the description of this one fit the bill. I love the unique twist that this story has, but I don't want to spoil it for readers. I like how the author dropped clues, but still left doubt so I had to keep reading to find out if my suspicions were correct. That's good storytelling.

I enjoyed the book and it'd make a great summer read on a lazy afternoon.
