At the Duke's Wedding

At the Duke’s Wedding is a set of linked novellas, each one written by a well-known author in the world of historical romance. Each of the stories takes place in and around the two weeks leading up to the wedding of the eponymous Duke, and one of the things I particularly liked was the way in w ...

Roses in Moonlight

I wasn’t completely sure what to expect when I started this book. Yes, I had the summary, but I’ve learned from past experience that just the summary doesn’t always help in choosing something to read. And I was right about that - it isn’t that the back of the book doesn’t describe what is ...

Perfect Timing

Catherine Anderson books are some of my favorite comfort reads. Her typical heroine displays tough survivalism in the face of hard times, and often finds help and a second chance with a strong country hero. Unfortunately, this book had none of the things I typically like about Anderson’s books, an ...

The Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl

When I picked a book about a time-traveling “Geek Girl,” it never occurred to me that the heroine would be not only coarse but TSTL. The book itself is bland and its plot, minus the time travel, is a class-and-culture conflict straight out of dozens of Regencies, but the unlikeable heroine took ...

I've been using the 12 in 2012 Reading Challenge on the Potpouri Board to encourage me to clear off my TBR pile and to read new to me sub-genres. Lovers lost in time is not exactly new to me, but it is a sub-genre I don't read very often. I'm glad I picked it for this round as I would have hated to ...

All for You

Like many other readers, I’ve been waiting for Peaches Alexander’s story in Kurland’s Medieval/modern romance series. We’ve seen her sisters, including her twin Tess, find the men of their dreams, so it was definitely Peaches’ turn. Unfortunately, 75% of the story is boring fluff, with onl ...

Soul Survivor

By
While I don’t read many time travel romances as a rule, I was intrigued by the Native American setting of Misty Evans’ Soul Survivor. I discovered that I can enjoy a time travel story if the plotting is handled with sensitivity, as it is here, even if the novel was a bit uneven in other areas. ...

The Rose Garden

I have very few authors on my auto-buy list. Susanna Kearsley - who writes haunting, lyrical works which combine romance and history - is one of them. In her latest novel she mixes time-travel and history to tell us a tale of love and murder. It's a compelling story and one I am thrilled to be able ...

One Magic Moment

Stepping into one of Lynn Kurland’s time travel novels is definitely one magic moment in itself. This book is part of the on-going Macleod/de Piaget series that began in 1996 with Stardust of Yesterday. I’m happy to report Kurland hasn’t lost her touch. Cambridge Medieval scholar and American ...

Highlander's Curse

By
The latest offering in the Daughters of the Glen series by Melissa Mayhue is a fun time travel with a touch of Fae magic. While it does not necessarily break any new ground, I still found it to be an enjoyable romp through medieval Scotland. The future of Scotland hangs in the ba ...
