This is a strong beginning. I had several questions in the first couple of pages. Nothing major, stuff about setting, character motivation, etc.
Your description in your post made me think of the book Son of the Morning by Linda Howard. Have you read it? It’s a time travel romance, and I think it’s at least halfway through the book before she goes back in time.
Anyway, I like what you have started.
