Twice a Hero

Susan Krinard, Author Bantam $6.99 (400p) ISBN 978-0-553-56918-6
In this romance that stumbles in the jungle but finds its heart in San Francisco, a young woman goes back in time to prevent a family curse, then falls in love with the man whose life she saves. MacKenzie ""Mac"" Sinclair is happy with her quiet life and museum job until her dying grandfather asks her to atone for a murder committed by her great-great-grandfather, a murder that burdened the family with a curse. She journeys to Mayan ruins and discovers the victim's bones, only to be swept back more than a 100 years by the mystical intercession of an ancient amulet. She awakens to meet sexy explorer Liam O'Shea, whom she duly saves from a murder attempt that may have been instigated by her ancestor, Perry Sinclair. At first, Mac spouts feminist cliches and snips at Liam like an adolescent, but the story gains momentum as they travel to San Francisco and she discovers that, by saving him, she may have prevented the marriage of her own great-great-grandparents. Thanks to Mac and her great-great-grandmother, Perry is exonerated, Liam is saved once again, and true love triumphs over time despite Victorian attitudes. Krinard also wrote Prince of Shadows and Prince of Wolves. (June)
