Yummy time traveling Scots! Do you really need any other reason to buy Lynn Kurland's books? I don't. Finding her latest, "Till There Was You" in the bookstore early was my favorite kind of serendipity.

Zachary needs to change his life. He's going to quit time-traveling with Jamie, find a nice woman and settle down...hopefully in a castle he can lovingly refurbish. So when the family ghosts turn their match-making eyes' towards him, he runs--and winds up in 13th century Scotland. Good thing he already knows the time-traveler's mantra "Leave no mar in the fabric of time". He can't change fate. No matter how much he comes to love the daughter of Robin of Artane. If he stays in her time, he has no riches and no title. If she disappears it will change the fabric of time. But when he remembers her fate, he can't NOT do anything.

Mary is the 13th version of a tomboy. She lives for training her father's horses and has no intention of marrying, and certainly not Sir Geoffrey. He's too slick, too pretty, and there's just something 'evil' about him. So when he returns to her father's keep and succeeds in gaining a betrothal, she's pretty sure she won't live long after the wedding. Then from out of nowhere a strangely-dressed man appears in her father's keep. He puts himself in danger to protect her, offers her all the courtesies she though she didn't want, and makes her feel beautiful...but he's not a lord and he says he must go home, wherever that is. But his eyes, oh his eyes say something else entirely.

Sappy smile accompanied by a happy sigh. Lynn Kurland has outdone herself this time with a Gamma hero who steps up even when he knows it's useless. Zachary is funny, sweet, protective, helpful, and pretty darn good with a sword too.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I love Lynn Kurland's writing style- the humor, the local color, drama, and of course, the romance. I have not found an author even near her in terms of being a quality, entertaining closed door romance author. She writes with such color and flavor that the scenery and characters easily come alive. I love how she is able to keep things straight in her mind- that she can reintroduce old characters into new stories (because they'd be around in that time). And she definitely creates swoon-worthy heroes... *sigh* For a single gal, these are great stories to live vicariously through- though it does set pretty high standards for any prospects...

But Til There Was You didn't have all the magic and spark that I've come to expect from her books. The story was formulaic. Zachary is an architect who is tired of getting beaten down (or pushed down stairs) for things that aren't his fault or are out of his control. He's decided to work for Gideon and Cameron restoring castles for their historical trust. He goes to visit Gideon at modern-day Artane, goes through the solar door and into medieval England. There he meets many prior LK characters. But his eye is on Mary de Piaget. Mary is trying to avoid betrothal to a knight who appears to be a perfect speciman but really isn't. Zachary knows the rules of time-travel, not to meddle with the fabric of past events and effect the future. But he falls helplessly for Mary, can he really leave her behind? For those who have read Stardust of Yesterday (for the brief mention of Mary), you should have a pretty good idea of what's to come.

The beginning of the story and even the characters of Mary and Zachary are too reminiscent of Jake and Amanda and their story. So the plot feels too predictable. There was no real climax.

While I love all Lynn Kurland's books, this one was somewhat of a let-down. I enjoyed the story, but if you've read Stardust of Yesterday (Amanda and Jake's story, I think that's the title), you will get a similar feel. I liked Mary's character, and I've always loved Zach, but he seemed different in this book than in the others. Maybe that was because he was older? At anyrate, if you've enjoyed all of Ms. Kurland's books,you'll probably enjoy this one too. I just don't think it's the best.

I am a big fan of Lynn Kurland's book but this one fell alittle short; mostly due to too many characters. Even with the key at the beginning it was difficult to keep up with all the characters, who they were related to and what century they were from. Overall it was still a good book just not one of my favorites.

In present day London, Zachary Smith is bone weary tired of unreasonable clients like Viscount Franbury who he would like to shove down the man's throat the architectural drawings, but fears the designs might be ruined. He also is weary of women like the client's cunning nasty sister Lady Beatrice Smythe-Gordon. Finally he is weary of the paranormal especially those matchmaking ghosts who haunt him. Zach plans to call his "former" boss to tell him what is coming his way and quits.

Zach walks through a door at Artane and finds himself sharing a dungeon with Mary de Piaget, a thirteenth century relative of one of his modern day ghosts. Zach having performed in reenactments has no major adjustment to the era, but has problems with his vow of no women as he is instantly attracted to the cross dressing Mary; whose father has arranged for her to marry as he can no longer delay the inevitable. Being a student of history, Zach understands he must be extremely careful not to change anything, but when someone tries to kill Mary using poison, he brings his beloved into his time; not knowing that the past never goes away.

This is an amusing time travel romance starring a terrific fully developed hero whose good intentions present and past are devastated by love. Mary is a strong person who takes to the role of liberated woman with ease as she was a forerunner prototype back in 1258. Fans will enjoy their fast-paced adventures as he learns finally how not to get out of the rain but to enjoy the rain from his beloved teacher Mary who lives life to the fullest.
