Star of the Morning

Lynn Kurland is one my favorite romance authors because of her great comic timing and natural writing. Star of the Morning kicks off her new trilogy in the fantasy medieval realm that she previously created for the novellas in the anthologies, To Weave a Web of Magic and The Queen In Winter. Her en ...

Much Ado in the Moonlight

Don't you just love it when a big, braw, kilt-wearing, Medieval laird is knocked for a loop and completely flummoxed by a small, feisty redhead? I know I do. But when the laird in question has been dead for 700 years, romance becomes a very complicated proposition. Victoria McKinnon, who produc ...

Dreams of Stardust

This was a book that I fully expected to and wanted to enjoy, but as the story progressed, more and more reasons not to like it cropped up. Jackson Alexander Kilchurn IV is outrageously wealthy in the year 2005. After a night at haunted Seakirk Castle, he heads for Artane Castle in h ...

A Garden in the Rain

Lynn Kurland is beloved for her portrayals of the time-traveling MacLeod family of Scotland. Various family members have traveled to modern-day Scotland from their home in the 13th century Highlands. One by one, each found love in their new place in time and, if this book is any indication, Ms. Ku ...

From This Moment On

There's something to be said for a writer who is able to embed choice bits of humor into her writing. Lynn Kurland takes a period not known for its humor (Chaucer aside) and imbues it with a light-heartedness that makes this version of the Medieval period a lot less dismal than most. From This Momen ...

My Heart Stood Still

Thomas McKinnon is almost too well-suited to be the hero of a time travel romance. He has degrees in both history and law; he easily made millions on the stock market so he doesn't have to waste time at a job; and he spends his days traveling, mountain climbing, and renovating old houses. And he see ...

The More I See You

One of my favorite books of all time is Lynn Kurland's This is All I Ask. One of my least favorite books ever is Kurland's Another Chance to Dream. While The More I See You doesn't match the poignancy and feeling of the former, it (thankfully) doesn't drown the reader in bleakness like the l ...

The More I See You

Perhaps I wasn't in the mood to read another time travel where an ultra-feisty, ultra-American, ultra-attitudinal chick goes back in time and tries to bring a dark, brooding, unsmiling, tormented hero from the 13th century into the 21st - or at the very least, the 14th. However, in spite of my own ...

Another Chance to Dream

I've always had a hard time getting into medieval romances. It's a hygiene thing. I just can't imagine kissing (or having sex!) with someone who hasn't bathed in weeks. Usually I only read books set in the years after bathing had gained in popularity. However, I now realize that if a book is well wr ...
