Wishlist Wednesday: Downtime


A weekly event on my blog where I post about books (not necessarily pre-release or new) that I've just added to my wishlist, along with a little blurb on why I want to read it.

Downtime
by Tamara Allen
release date: 1 February 2010
On assignment in London, FBI Agent Morgan Nash finds himself moments away from a bullet through the heart when the case he's working goes awry. But fate has other plans, he discovers when he wakes in a world far removed from his own.
At work cataloguing ancient manuscripts in the British Museum, Ezra Glacenbie inadvertently creates the magic that pulls Morgan out of the twenty-first century and into the nineteenth. It's an impromptu vacation which may become permanent when the spellbook goes missing.
Further upsetting Morgan's search for a way home is the irresistible temptation to investigate the most notorious crime of the nineteenth century. But it's the unexpected romance blossoming between Morgan and Ezra that becomes the most dangerous complication of all.

Why it's on my wishlist
I've seen quite a few glbt mysteries, but none that's based in the 19th century like this one. The dash of magic is of course a bonus, along with a scholarly hero and "unexpected" romance (as opposed to lust at first sight).

Giveaway Reminder
