Format: Paperback
A very good time travel romance; in fact, if I could have given it 4.5 stars I probably would have.

A very tall (over six feet), stacked 21st century woman, raised by her Special Forces father in all the normal boy pursuits (including martial arts and SCA sword fighting), misuses a family treasure and finds herself back in 12th century England, during the war of succession that ended with Henry I (Matilda's son) on the throne. There she meets the first man to ever make her feel womanly and sexy, huge and built Rufus of Rathburn. As she tutors her at-first-reluctant student in the arts of guerilla warfare and bomb-making, and gets tutored in uninhibited sex, she finds herself having to make a choice whether her future lies in the 21st or the 12th century.

Like the rest of Delilah Devlin's most recent books (maybe Jackson's collaboration helped, or is it Devlin's maturation as a writer? In any case), this book shows dramatically improved writing compared to her earlier efforts. Sentence structure, grammar and punctuation are all very strong, as are both plot and character development.

So why didn't I give it five stars? Although the book is well written, and a very pleasant way to while away a few hours, especially if you like passionate sex with your romances, the plot is just a little too...predictable? Similar to other time travel romances?

Maybe the problem is with me. I've read the Diana Gabaldon time-travel romances, and I've probably read another dozen or so time-travel romances besides hers. Even though I've enjoyed those other time-travel romances, some of them quite a lot (like this one), none of them have been written at the same level as any of the Gabaldon series.

So, in my opinion, the overall impact of this novel on me is about a half star to a star less than the impact of a Gabaldon novel, but that doesn't make this a bad review at all. It's really quite a good book.

This was one of the best books I have read about time travel. I love the description of the times and event happening. The hero is everything a woman dreams of in a man,he's strong, assertive and when it comes to Jacq he's madly in love with her willing to do anything for her. I also enjoy when Jacq retains her own personality and contributes to helping him win the battles. Jacq is intriguing and assertive and for a woman in her time, she is amazing both in her 20th century place and finds love in the arms of her warlord back in his time. This is not a book to be missed. I will be reading it over and over again.Jacq's Warlord

Why can't these time travel books ever be realistic. Woman from the present goes back in time and yells and screams and throws tantrums and get her way? I doubt it -- especially since this woman goes to all the medieval fairs, but has "vast" knowledge about medieval fighting and saves the day. Hooray for her. Really?
