“Kiss me,” she hissed, moving her head slightly to indicate the others down the dock. Just for show.” Wariness was replaced by that light in his eyes. “Ja, Lucy. I kiss you for show.” “Make it good,” she whispered. “We are new wed.” She looked up at him and suddenly she was afraid. Not that he would ravish her. She was afraid of something worse. Or better. Galen dipped his head. His breath was warm on her face. His lashes brushed his cheeks. His beard and mustache, gone, had freed his lips to reveal a sensuality that was dangerous. They brushed her lips softly. His arm came round her waist, holding her to his hip. She felt the bulge of his biceps as he tightened his embrace until she could hardly get her breath. How had her lips opened? They did it without her will. He took ruthless advantage, his own tongue slipping in to caress hers. How dare he be so tender with her? He was a Viking, for goodness' sake. But there was nothing of goodness about it and she found herself loving the moist sensuality of his mouth, the faint taste of bacon still lin¬gering from this morning. Slowly he plunged deeper and then, somehow, their tongues entwined and she was kissing him back, even though she never meant to make it a true kiss on her side. Her hands slid around his ribbed torso, under Jake’s flapping flannel shirt. The contrast between Galen’s muscled hardness and her breasts and belly pressed against him made her feel vulnerable. That wasn’t bad, exactly. She’d begun to feel light-headed by the time he broke the kiss. All her blood was pooled between her legs, and she was throbbing. He didn’t let her go. His arm still held her pressed to his hip. His eyes weren’t icy now. Definitely not. “What means ‘for show’?”
Susan Squires is without a doubt one of the best authors of time travel romances. Effortlessly taking the modern world and adding a sprinkle of the past.

In this book, the hero is Galen Valgarssen, honorable, valiant, bold advisor to the king and did I mention, a hot, sexy Viking?
The heroine, Lucy Rossano is still dealing with her feelings after the loss of her father. The only shining light in her life is when she wanders across an old book written by Leonardo Da Vinci about a time machine, which who she excitedly shares it’s existence with her friend Brad, who informs her the machine is real.
Wounded and near death Galen is sent back through time and his world crashes with Lucy’s. If he hadn’t followed her he would be dead, so history is changed, but the time machine did not do as it was suppose to and Lucy and Galen soon find themselves in grave danger. Not to mention hiding a Viking in modern day San Francisco is nearly impossible. But mostly she finds it difficult to fight her attraction to Galen and his obvious attraction to her. It's ludicrous to think she could ever have a relationship with a man who lived generations ago, isn't it?
