Today we'll highlight another romance novel from my never ending bookcases. The Ultimate Passage by Jean Hackensmith and Kathe Birch is like no other romance novel I've ever read.
It is a time travel romance, the fourth and last book in the "Passage" saga by these two talented ladies. The story begins in the year 2320, where President Darius Calhoun and the rest of the world live in domed cities where sex is illegal because it transmits disease.
But when Darius is transported back to 14th century Scotland, his life begins to change in ways he could never have expected. And he isn't the only one who has time traveled. Other characters who readers have met in the first three books of this saga also come together to provide a satisfying conclusion to the four-book journey readers have taken.
I honestly had no idea what to expect when I picked up this book because time travel and magical amulets are not my usual interests when choosing reading material. But I am so glad that I took a chance on The Ultimate Passage. It remains one of my favorite romances.
