Love was the death of her.
Tracy Hill has lived eight lives-- all of them disastrous-- beginning in 1320 when her own knight in shining armor charged over her with his horse in the dark. Since then, it has been one freak accident after another. Now after the indignity of dying in a bowling ball accident while on a date with a cute new lawyer in her firm, Tracy Hill has had enough.
However, Heaven's "Resettlement Committee" has other plans. For her ninth life, she is promised health, wealth, and absolutely no chance at love, this time around. But they leave out one tiny, little detail: she's being sent to live in Montana, on a cattle ranch in 1875. At least they got the No More Love part right. Seth Murdoch is dangerously attractive-- if you like the rugged cowboy type. Thankfully, Tracy doesn't.
It's soon clear, though, that this thoroughly modern woman and this nineteenth-century cowboy share more than growing desire, spitfire backtalk, and nights of sleepless longing. They share a star-crossed eternity. And maybe-- just maybe-- this time around, love... and Tracy, are here to stay.

Tracy Hill, the heroine of Kathleen Kane's This Time for Keeps, has the worst luck. In 1998, she is prematurely killed by a bowling-ball accident while on a date. Through the centuries, she has been killed eight times; each was a freak accident involving the man she loved. Tired of this endless pattern, she makes a deal with the Resettlement Committee in an attempt to ensure a better outcome in her next life. Tracy bargains for wealth and health, but there's no chance for love. She also asks to keep the memories of her past lives: "If you can't guarantee that I won't fall in love, the least you can do is to let me remember why I shouldn't," she implores.
The Committee sends Tracy into the body of a woman living on a Montana ranch in 1875. When she meets the blue-eyed foreman, Seth Murdoch, she is happy to find that she isn't attracted to the rugged cowboy type--at least at first. Sparks develop between them, causing Tracy to have some very unsettling dreams regarding the man she has loved throughout time. Try as they might, Tracy and Seth are unable to deny the desire they have for each other. The two must decide if they dare take a chance on love. For both it is a big gamble, but the outcome is worth the ride. It is fun to watch Tracy, a modern Los Angeles woman, struggle with 1800s Montana, and Seth's reaction to the modern Tracy is just as entertaining. Kane has delivered a novel with enough twists to keep the angels enthralled, if they're watching.About the Author:
