Killing Time - Linda Howard I know this book hasn't been rated very high by other people but I loved it. It's sci-fi, contemporary with romantic suspense all rolled into one with some time travel thrown in. At first when I heard the name Nikita for the heroine I thought, "Oh brother!", but actually it did fit. Nikita is sent back in time to find a renegade time traveler. There's more than she thought going on. She meets up with investigator Knox Davis for some help. Great book.
