Some links I used to write this novella.


A steampunk/science fiction romance novella.

(Project Enterprise 3)

Colonel Carey (from The Key and Girl Gone Nova) takes a test "flight" through the Garradian time-space portal, but an unexpected impact lands him somewhere and some when. As he attempts to get to Area 51, he crosses paths with Miss Olivia Carstairs, who could be Mary Poppins' twin sister. Or maybe her cousin. Olivia's got a transmogrification machine powered by steam and a mouth he'd like to kiss like it was his job. Can he convince her to join forces before she shoots him with her derringer?

What others are saying about Tangled in Time:

"Tangled in Time is a sweet read in so many respects. Ms. Jones is a wonderful writer whose well-written plots and likable characters always make for absorbing, exciting reads – the great news about that being that she has so many more characters from these first three books awaiting their own stories. I just hope we don't have to wait too long for the next one." Two Lips Reviews, 4 and 1/2 lips!

"This story moves quickly with warm characters, sweet interaction and quirky dialogue between a 1894 bluestocking girl and a 2010 soldier guy. There is a bit of suspense and mystery that kept me wondering. Again, this story could be read alone but has more meaning and connection with the past characters and situations when read in order in the series. I was sorry this one was so short and looked forward to the next book!" Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf

"TANGLED IN TIME is a unique story in its self but also gives an added glimpse of favorite characters from Ms. Jones’ THE KEY and GIRL GONE NOVA. The resulting humor when two people from different centuries meet and their use of their own technical vocabulary is delightfully portrayed. Well written plot, likable characters and a little twist at the end enhance the entertainment factor and leaves the reader wanting to know what will happen next. Please, don’t leave us dangling too long Ms. Jones!" SingleTitles.com

"I love original plots, quirky characters and surprises and I enjoyed every minute of Tangled in Time. Do read." Long and Short Romance Reviews, Five Books

"I read this Sci Fi/Steampunk Romance Novella ARC for the author and I couldn't put it down. It was wonderful with great gentle humor!"Reviews by Martha

"I can’t thank Pauline enough for exposing me to a new genre. I absolutely recommend reading Tangled In Time to science geeks and non-nerds alike. Pauline has the art of subtle romance down, which is something I can now say that I have been missing on my reading list. Tangled In Time is perfectly executed and an absolutely satisfying read!" FirePages

"Jones packs a wallop of a story in Tangled in Time. Humor and suspense abound in a tale filled with action and suspense. The diversity between Carey and Olivia in manner and speaking is portrayed with engaging wit and the chemistry between the two is fun and highly entertaining. Fans of Jones will recognize favorite characters from The Key and Girl Gone Nova, an added bonus. This novella will appeal to readers across genres, offering romance, suspense, and mystery all wrapped up in an intriguing Sci-Fi plot that grabs the reader from beginning to end." Midwest Book Review

"Tangled in Time is a combination of science fiction and steam punk. I liked this book. It was nice to see a woman like Olivia in a place of power, in addition to being such a strong character. She really could hold her own in this book. Colonel Carey is a good male lead. There was some adventure in this book as well. Author Pauline Baird Jones did a good job transporting me back in time. Tangled in Time had me tangled in a good book." Manic Readers

"Two people out of time and space collide in an engaging tale of lighthearted romance and daring adventure."Coffee Time Romance
