More About the Author

Chris Karlsen is a retired police detective. She spent twenty-five years in law enforcement with two different agencies. The daughter of a history professor and a voracious reader, she grew up with a love of hisotry and books.
An internationally published author, Chris has traveled extensively throughout Europe, the Near East, and North Africa satisfying her need to visit the places she read about. Having spent a great deal of time in England and Turkey, she has used her love of both places as settings for her books. "Heroes Live Forever," which is her debut book, is set in England as is the sequel, "Journey in Time." Both are part of her "Knights in Time," series. Her third book, to be released in late 2011, "Golden Chariot," is set in Turkey and she is currently working on another set in Turkey, Paris and Cyprus.
Published by Books to Go Now, her novels are available in digital, ebook, and Android App. "Heroes Live Forever," is available in paperback and "Journey in Time," will be made available in paperback in October, 2011 on her publisher's site.
A Chicago native, Chris has lived in Paris and Los Angeles and now resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and four rescue dogs. A city girl all her life, living in a small village on a bay was a interesting adjustment. She'd never lived anywhere so quiet at night and traffic wasn't bumper to bumper 24/7.
Some of Chris's favorite authors are: Michael Connolly, John Sandford, Joseph Wambaugh, Stephen Coonts, Bernard Cornwell, Julia Quinn, Julie Anne Long, Deanna Raybourne and Steve Berry.

I read Chris Karlsen's first book 'Heroes Live Forever' at the insistence of a friend. I really had no interest in time travel. Boy! Was I surprised! Now I've read 'Journey in Time' and just like Karlsen's first book, I was totally involved with her characters. I not only liked them, I also learned through them. Karlsen does her homework and I was the beneficiary.I hope there is another book soon.

Loved this wonderful time travel romance! Shakira is one of my favorite female characters- she's smart, beautiful and doesn't take crap from anyone. It's obvious Karlsen has done her homework in regard to the historical aspect of the book- I loved how Shakira's viewpoint made me feel as though I was there, experiencing the 14th century as a contemporary woman would. This is a great follow up to Heroes Live Forever. Read it, buy it. I know you won't be disappointed.

I was thrilled to find out more about Guy in the follow up to Heroes Live Forever. One of my favorite things about Chris Karlsen's writing style is she tends to address the modern day questions that pop into my head when Shakira finds herself traveling back in time. The fact that she made Shakira a strong minded, intelligent woman was very appealing.

This is a great love story, well developed, and told beautifully. I can't wait for the next in the series!!

This is a fantastic novel. The author kept me engaged from the get-go. Journey In Time started in modern day London and smoothly transitioned into medieval times with nary a hiccup or awkward moment. I loved the interactions between Alex and Shakira, whether it was truly the Alex of modern day or Guy from historical times.

Shakira's ability to adapt to the lifestyle of the medieval era showed strength on her part and Ms. Karlsen did a wonderful job; she did excellent research on this time period (not that I'm an expert, because frankly I'm not). The time travel spin on the story was smooth and unobtrusive, making my so-so attitude towards that genre increase a little more to the "time travel isn't so bad" attitude.

This is an intriguing time-travel romance full of emotional angst and vividly depicted scenery. I found myself drawn to many of the characters and rooted for their happiness every step of the way, particularly amongst the male characters. Alex/Guy, whose story was touched on in the previous book, is one of the male characters that I'm particularly drawn to. He's charming and protective of those he cares for and easily navigated between the past and present. He always tried to do the honorable thing even when the course was not an easy one and I admit to a bit of a crush on him. His fellow knights Simon and Stephen were also appealing with vivid and immensely likable qualities. I would love to see more of these characters and with a word of warning given to Stephen late in the story I have high hopes of his storyline continuing.

While the males in this story are a highlight, I was a bit disappointed in the heroine. Shakira is an outspoken woman in the world of law and a musician. In the present those qualities are admirable and likable. Once in the past though a more unpleasant side of her comes out. She's only concerned with her well-being and angered that Alex adjusts so easily. She wants modern things immediately and to be treated in a modern way regardless of how it appears. During her time in the past I found her shrewish and overbearing. I'm sure that the circumstances of being thrown into the unexpected caused her unappealing nature and ultimately, once back in the present, she became more likable and worthy of the hero.

In most time-travel stories the cause of it is left unexplained for the most part. This story takes a different course and spends a bit of time debating the cause which felt out of place and was a bit too scientific.

Shakira is a beautiful, detail-oriented, practical London attorney, who plays guitar in a band on weekends. She holds herself aloof from the groupies and avoids involvement. One night at a charity event she is twirled onto the dance floor by Alex Lancaster, a handsome playboy. Shakira isn't overwhelmed by Alex's attempts to charm her but she is intrigued by the kiss he steals.

Once Alex discovers who Shakira is he pursues her in earnest. He decides to hire her to represent him in a malicious sexual harassment case when she expresses complete faith in him. This is good because he'll get to be near her but bad because her ethics dictate that she not become involved with a client.

Alex finally talks Shakira into a friendly visit and horse ride on his beautiful country estate. Unexpectedly they are caught in a time warp and find themselves in medieval England. Alex seems right at home as everyone greets him and he easily steps into the life of Baron Guy Guisard. Shakira is shocked and doesn't know how she could survive in this strange time without Alex there to help her. But if they don't return to the present she might lose him as the King plans to send him to France to fight in the battle of Poitiers. First though, they have to face the King's plans to marry Alex to a noblewoman and to give his `mistress' to a rich merchant in town.

Alex exhibits extreme, and unwarranted, jealousy and fierce possessiveness. He does not want to acknowledge any depth of feeling for Shakira and he has vowed never to marry. Shakira suffers physical danger, emotional stress and the pain of falling in love with a man who will never return the sentiment. Both of them make separate plans on how to escape the danger of Alex having to go off to war where he is likely to die.
