"Irresistible, right down to the surprise at the end… One of the best romances of the year." -The Detroit Free Press

Sir Gaston de Varennes wanted a docile bride who would fit into his plans for vengeance and justice, but a trick of time finds him married to a thoroughly modern American lady who turns his castle, his life, and his heart upside down. Will her desperate secret tear them apart after only a few bittersweet weeks of stolen passion—or will they conquer mistrust, treachery, and time itself to discover a love that spans the centuries?

  • Left me wanting more

    I didn't expect to fall in love with such a crazy tale of time travel but this was truly a most beautiful love story with lots of twists, turns, and surprises, though the juicy sex doesn't appear until the end. I read it in one day couldn't put it down and have so many questions: what happens when Brynna and Faria travel to 1993, how did Lady Christianne fare in 1993, will she and Celine ever meet, how did the Chauteaux end up in the Fontaine family rather than the Varennes family? My only critique is that it seemed Celine's choice to stay was made too easy there was no angst of loosing her entire family and modern life. I don't know that I would have made such a choice even for a great love, without considering both going to 1993 as an option.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Time travel always grabs my attention, but this one was extraordinarily well-written with twists & turns I didn't anticipate. That alone was refreshing, along with strong characters. I am truly looking forward to the next book in this series.

    I just read a couple of books of Mrs. Shelly Thacker, ( Forever His and His Stolen Bride ) and I just loved them. They have everything you need in a good story. The love scenes are also wonderfully hot and sweet. I would recommend her books to any fan reader of romance. Two thumbs up!

    Refreshingly different. This is a great love story that should not be missed.
  • Not the best time-travel

    By Shuttrbugin
    I liked the way the time travel was presented and I especially liked the characters. However, the plot was very predictable and therefore held very little excitement. A Knight in Shining Armor was and is still the best. I have read that book 3 times, although the last time, I finally realized that the main character was a bit ridiculous. However, it was still good. Outlander was also an excellent read. This book.....meh. It's lacking in substance and believability. It's not as convincing as Outlander or even AKISA.
