What book am I thinking of?

I vaguely remember a book (I think it was a series actually) that revolved around these people who could go back and time and alter the future....? I remember that one time they went back in time to make sure that the city of atlantis was actually lost. Also, I remember something about there always being two partners going back...it was a boy and a girl and I think in the end they got together. There was a leader of these time travelers...I think. It was this person that refused to define itself as either male or female.

Another detail...when they were getting ready to travel back in time, they would go through this production of getting into the proper attire, etc. Then went into this big room and were sent back.

The villains were usually trying to disrupt the course of history for some reason...and the good guys tried to keep it like it was.

Very vague, but any help would be amazing!! If not oh well.

Thanks.

    Kage Baker's "The Company" series

    http://www.amazon.com/Life-World-Come-Company/dp/0...

    "Cyborg biologist Mendoza has been exiled to the extremely distant past to live her immortal span farming maize and lettuce for wealthy tourists of the twenty-fourth century. She occasionally reminisces about the man she loved in, first, the sixteenth, and then, the nineteenth century. Then, one day, he crash-lands in her cornfield. It isn't precisely he, of course, but someone from the same Company project named Alec Checkerfield and gone pirate. Most of the story is his, from childhood spent on a sailing ship to his youth and education in London to growing wealth and power. As he discovers ever more about his parentage and the power of Dr. Zeus, Inc., to manipulate people and the world, he determines to bring the Company down. Mendoza provides him the key tidbit that, after 2355, Dr. Zeus' knowledge is blank. That time will be Alec's window of opportunity. Alec is quite a character, especially for the sedate twenty-fourth century"

    Hmm... the concept is about the same as the Pendragon series by D. J. MacHail (I think that's how it's spelled), but some of the details are different.

    I've never heard of or read this series, but could you be thinking of the "Agent of T.E.R.R.A." series by Larry Maddock? It sounds somewhat like your description, I think:

    If not, here's where I found that title: http://whateveresque.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=21...

    And here's a list of time travel science fiction works: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_time_travel_s...

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help. I hope you find what you're looking for.
