Setting: Medieval England, 1260
Sensuality: 7

Jessica Blakely appears to have it all as composer-in-residence at a prestigious university. But what she really wants is a husband and family. On a trip to England, Jessica walks in an estate garden and wishes on a star for a "fair and gallant knight... a man to love me at least as much as he loves himself." Within moments fog rolls in, and when it lifts the garden is gone and she's swept up by an armored knight, narrowly escaping being trampled by a mounted hunting party. Richard of Burwyck-on-the-Sea hates having to be chivalrous, but as leaving the lovely woman isn't an option, he carries her home with him.

The fact that Jessica is far, far from Manhattan takes only a little while to sink in, as does the realization that this bold, brash knight is the man for her. But for Richard, whose own dreams of happiness were beaten out of him as a child, it takes a little longer to accept that Jessica is the mate that fate and time have sent him. But even if Jessica wants to stay in 1260 England with her battle-hardened knight, will the forces that drew her to him across time allow her to remain? And if Richard gives his wary heart into Jessica's keeping, can he be sure she won't carry it away with her into the future and leave him alone?

Kurland has a talent for mixing the pageantry of medieval England and the romance of knightly chivalry with the gritty reality of everyday life. Add a brooding hero and a feisty heroine, a plot that avoids cliches, and a unique voice from Kurland that's downright charming, and you have The More I See You. --Lois Faye Dyer

From Booklist

In Kurland's latest delightful and humorous time travel romance, Jessica Blakely is looking for love with all the wrong blind dates. One lands her in England at a retreat with an obnoxious professor and his colleagues. While at a medieval-dress tea, she escapes outside to the garden, wishing for a man who wasn't just dressed like a knight, but who is truly chivalrous. A little while later her wish comes true as a snarling pack of dogs appears and a knight of old comes to her rescue. Her savior, Richard De Galtres, is the lord of the castle in every sense of the word. Not only is he moody and fierce, but Jessica discovers that living in his world is very difficult for a modern woman. They do eventually learn to appreciate each other, but the king has other marriage plans in mind for Richard, and Jessica has inadvertently aroused suspicions of an occult kind. Patty Engelmann

It is a great book to read on a rainy day !
E. Stanclift
I sit reading for hours on end, smiling, laughing out loud, crying and wishing that love and romance were the way she makes it sound in her books.

The storyline was exciting and moved along very smoothly with characters that were well developed and intelligent.

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 latter, and I found it an enjoyable read, with lots of wit and tender moments.
Jessica Blakely is a successful composer and musician who yearns for the magic of love. At the moment, unfortunately, she is stuck in England, wearing medieval clothes for a party at a castle, and accompanied by a dull suitor who wants to be her knight in shining armor. Literally. Wishing upon a star to find her a man who loves her, Jessica's walk around the castle lands her in the 13th century, startling both her and the party of men who want the "fairie" dead on the spot.
One of the men is Richard de Galtres, a dark and brooding knight who saves Jessica from the rest of the group. Despite Jessica's strange accent and speech, the men end up believing that she is related to the King. They think she is babbling incoherently because she hit her head when she fainted, so they take her back to Burwyck-on-the-Sea, Richard's ancestral home. Once there, Jessica and Richard begin to get on each other's nerves, and much to their respective dismay, a mutual attraction begins to grow.
While Jessica adjusts to life without 20th-century comforts, she begins to appreciate the man hidden underneath Richard's gruff exterior; the discoveries she makes about his past help put some of the pieces of the puzzle together, and she finds herself yearning for a mere smile from him.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have read most of the books in this series and have found that Ms. Kurland has either hit or missed with no real in-betweens. I've felt the last few books have missed, and actually wondered if she wrote them, because they seemed so different than her first books. Richard and Jessica's story was well written, with strong characters, and an interesting relationship that continues to grow throughout the book. I feel that this book is mostly about Richard, his "issues" and how he deals with them. Although Jessica is our time traveler, and she is an integral key in opening Richard up, this is not her story.
It helps that there are other time travelers in the plot, but as with most time travel books, I found that our non-traveler believes our traveler too easily. Richard has his doubts, but they are rather quickly abated. Jessica does not behave like a Medieval woman, and is very knowledgeable, but that in itself should not be enough motivation to believe.
All in all, I might have liked a little more detail on lifestyles in 13th century England, but there is enough to make the story interesting. Jessica brings her modern language as well as her modern thoughts, and this makes for some amusing anecdotes. Enjoy this as a solid, fun book.

This is the first book of Lynn Kurland's I've ever read, and I was impressed with the lightheartedness and humor her characters possess. I thought the time travel theory was a little farfetched, but hey, it's supposed to be I guess. I loved the heroine, Jessica Blakely in this novel. I must admit that at first she kind of annoyed me, but by the end of the book I was wishing for more of her sharp wit and commentary. I also loved the hero, Richard. He was the perfect match for Jessica, and it was great fun to see their romance evolve into something wonderful. I like the fact that these two characters grew within the novel and changed into better people. Jessica wasn't as reliant on material things and was more self sufficient and stronger than when the book began. Richard, even more so, by becoming more open to the idea that women weren't just to fulfill the needs of men. The one thing I didn't like about this book was the villain. I tended to skip the parts when Richard's brother Hugh was taking over the chapter. They seemed like obnoxious interruptions into Jessica and Richard's story.

I absolutely loved this book. The characters were well developed and the storyline was great. I loved how the author addressed the physical and emotional abuse Richard went through as a child and how Jessica had to heal his soul before they could truely be happy. Because I read so often it is very rare for me to feel emotion for the characters but this book did it to me. Buy the book and become part of the story. It is definately a keeper. Also read "Stardust of Yesterday." That book had me laughing out loud and the part where Kendrick gives his love a ring made me cry (my husband now thinks I'm a loon). Happy reading.

Jessica Blakely is a lonely girl. A musical prodigy, Jessica spent most of her life honing her craft without much of thought of anything else. Years later, she is living in New York and enjoying a very successful career in music, but her success is not without cost, which is her love life. Since Jessica had very little experience in dating, she became the unwilling victim of numerous blind dates, set up by many of her well-intentioned friends. One of these blind dates leads to a trip to England when the story opens.

On a beautiful evening filled with stars, Jessica takes a stroll in the park as she ponders her life. In a moment of spontaneity, she makes a wish upon a star and suddenly finds herself swept back in time to the year 1260 and about to be set upon by a pack of hounds.

Richard is a damaged soul. He's a fierce warrior who struggles to forget the cruel abuse he had to endure as a child at the hands of his father. Richard is convinced that his father has long stamped out any good that may have existed in his heart...until he meets Jessica. Rather, rescues her from being mauled by the hounds.

The story of Richard and Jessica is so poignant, their love almost palpable. You'll sigh over and over again as they struggle to overcome their fears in order to love each other, as well as fight to keep each other safe from forces that threaten to tear them apart.

This was such an enchanting book to read. Lynn Kurland's gift with words is beyond compare. When you delve into one of her books, the inexorable draw of her words entices you into the story and holds you captive, until you feel the heart-wrenching pain of love torn asunder as well as the expanding tightness in your chest and also tears as her hero and heroine find one another. To put it succinctly, her books will make your toes curl.
