Winner of Eppie 2007 - Mainstream
A time travel/action adventure/romance.
For adventure reporter, Melanie "Mel" Morton, World War II is part of the past until the day that former B-17 bomber pilot, Jack Hamilton walks out of history and into her kitchen.
What he tells her sends her on her craziest adventure yet—straight into the past to try and save her grandfather’s life.
All she has to do is travel through time, stick to the mission, outmaneuver a couple of armies in the middle of a war, oh, and not fall in love with the hotshot bomber pilot.
No problem…well, maybe a little…

What others have to say about Out of Time:
"It's almost impossible not to get wrapped up in this
amazing book. Out of Time is the perfect book to unwind with after a
long day at work.” A Girl And Her Kindle
"Out of Time has Oscar nomination written all throughout its very well written and adventurous pages. I can see this being turned into a movie because it is so fleshed out; details are so vivid and the dialogue matched true to the characters that they seem to jump off of the pages. Ms. Jones has a winner with this story and it’s going on my keeper shelf." Long and Short Reviews, Best Book
"Jones is back and taking on new genres and challenges in this high-intensity time-traveling war thriller. Love can truly span generations, as these soul mates born out of time prove. Adding in the drama of being trapped behind enemy lines ratchets up the tension and thrill factor! " Four Stars! Romantic Times—Jill M. Smith
"What a great time I had reading ! I got in trouble at work, at home and I could not put it down. Ms. Jones made me feel I was right there with the Time Machine crew in the freezing skies over France and the French countryside with the Resistance trying to help downed flyers was all too real. Even the deaths were done true to life. I can't express how much this book made me think of other folks' relatives who lived and died for our freedom." Manic Readers
"Out of Time is a remarkable story that kept this reader glued to the pages. Mel is electrically charged as she steps into a time-travel that spins with excitement and thrills while trying to keep her heart at bay with Jack. They share a chemistry that is marvelously created. It is love at its finest as they try to sort out a past to produce a future for everyone. Ms. Jones originates a performance with her characters that puts the reader in the center of the stage. With the enemy beckoning to stop Mel at every turn, she pens a fabulous read that shouldn’t be missed as she captivates the audience with suspense, romance and just the right edge until the final conclusion. The reader is transported into yesteryear during a time of war where our heroes should never be forgotten in a war that costs so many their precious lives and loves, in a heart-felt story that spins with much creativity." Five hearts! The Romance Studio
"...the story is magical, romantic, and funny. It's a hoot to see Mel, a thoroughly 21st century woman, trying to cope with the culture, and the uncomfortable shoes, of wartime England. When she joins the crew in a mission to occupied France, the reader can imagine what it must have been like inside the bomber, trying to complete their mission under terrifying circumstances. In this homage to the Greatest Generation, Jones takes us on a wild and often poignant ride through time." Over My Dead Body Reviews
"Brilliant storytelling! Exceptionally and skillfully written! This award-winning author is once again on the leading edge of technology as she weaves together humor, suspense, and romance. Out of Time is a salute of respect and admiration to the brave men and women who fought in WWII. Pauline B. Jones’ finest book to date." Diana L. Driver, Author of Ninth Lord of the Night
