Jessie Jerome is a folk singer who has been piecing together what she's heard of the Ballad of Jack O'Dair and is desperately searching for how the song ends. She's quite attached to the song with little understanding why, but she feels she's kind of half in love with the possibly fictional hero of the song. She tracks down an old man who can tell her the end of the song but he abandons her in the Alaskan wilderness, in the cabin he says that Jack O'Dair used to live in. When she wakes up, Jessi Jessie Jerome is a folk singer who has been piecing together what she's heard of the Ballad of Jack O'Dair and is desperately searching for how the song ends. She's quite attached to the song with little understanding why, but she feels she's kind of half in love with the possibly fictional hero of the song. She tracks down an old man who can tell her the end of the song but he abandons her in the Alaskan wilderness, in the cabin he says that Jack O'Dair used to live in. When she wakes up, Jessie finds herself 100 years in the past and face to face with Jack O'Dair who is every bit the hero the song claimed he was. But he's also avoiding relationships, refusing to be responsible for any ONE person when he feels he's responsible for the whole town. And Jessie has no idea how long she's in the past, but she's certain that while she's there she can figure out how the song ends and try to be of some help to Jack, who is investigating a string of robberies in town. This wasn't perfect. I did find myself periodically getting irritated with Jessie and her constant desire to help when it wasn't wanted. But on the whole, I liked this one. First is it's unique setting in gold rush Alaska in a small, rough little town. Then there's Jack, who is terrified of letting people down and feels obligated to help people and his rather benign chauvanism, which has him always looking out for the heroine and trying to take care of her, but not necessarily control her. He was sweet while still managing an almost alpha personality. The story itself was engaging, with the time-travel, the robbery mystery and the question of the ballad of course.

    Okay, time travel, sexy dude who is perfect, feisty and confused heroine, large wolf dog, snow, manly parts pressing hard, more confusion, avalanche, ladies of the night, long and somewhat badly written ballad whose ending is yet to be known... (but yes, we finally do get to the end) Well, really, what's not to like? It was engaging fluff.

    So I read this one mostly in the car too, and I'm not sure what to think of it really. It's actually a sci-fi romance novel that really plays down the sci-fi part and never really explains how she ends up where she is. The romance part was fine, it was the mechanics of the plot that had me wondering how everything was supposed to work.
