Format: Mass Market Paperback
I picked this up at a used bookstore, recognizing the author's name from her currently popular vampire series. This novel features Jane Florian, a medieval history specialist who is launched against her will into the Middle Ages in a time travel experiment. Stuck there, she establishes herself as chatelaine of a local castle and concentrates on making the teenage lord and lady a successful couple, while fighting her own attraction to Sir Daffyd, a local knight. I loved reading Jane/Jehane's adventures, as she constantly balanced her impulse to make life better with her fear of drastically changing history. There was a fun twist in the romance with Sir Daffyd, and the explanations, when they were given, went a long way toward making the twist believable. The fast pace, good characterization and high level of quality in the writing made this an entertaining read.

This is a fine time-travel romantic tale. The characters are well drawn and the humor and dialogue are riveting. One of the reviews wisely warns readers not to read too many others as they give away the plot. I am glad I heeded that advice because I really did not guess the ending and was delighted by it. It takes place during medieval times, as do some other books by Sizemore. It is a wonderful book with which to while away some happy hours.

Remember how in the movie 'Back to The Future' when in 1985 Marty McFly goes to the Twin Pines Mall to meet Dr. Brown? But when he is in 1955 he plows down one of the two pine trees that is on the future site of the Mall so when comes back to 1985 it is called the Lone Pine Mall? Out of all the stuff that Marty changes when he goes back to the past this one always tickled me the most. It is a small, subtle tiny thing that says even the smallest change in the past can affect the future.

This book would have benefited from that simple little detail. Jane time travels back to the time of King John and even though she tries to keep her head down and affect the past as little as possible, her presence in that time does have an affect on the people there and possibly the outcome of the future. But as the story is presented it is nothing but a historical romance in the guise of a time travel. I was a disappointed because I wanted the time travel element to have some meaning or necessity to the plot and it didn't. I Would've liked some contrast to future before she left and after she returned. As it was the ending was so abrupt and we never even knew what happens to Jane when she returns home. So yeah, I was pretty disappointed overall with the time travel pat of the book and the romance, fairly standard, did not make up for it.

I picked up the original edition of Wings Of The Storm in 1992. It was the first romance I'd ever read and now twenty years on it's still as thrilling to read as it was then. Susan Sizemore is one of the greats in romance writing, no doubt about that, and the popularity of this book today shows it's worth every cent. The realistic medieval setting and it's people are woven seamlessly together in to such a thrilling tale. The main characters along with minor ones are a joy to travel with on this adventure, and it's one that is hard to put down. The hero in particular is by far the most intense and deeply sensual character I have come across in the last two decades of reading romance novels - the major reason I read this again each year or so.

It all begins when the man in charge of the time-travel experiment where she works in the present day, under the heavy influence of alcohol, forces her to travel back in time without any preparation on her part. She arrives in the middle ages with goods that were sent back with her including appropriate clothing and a few trade goods that made her a rich woman in that time. Under the guise of a widow from the Holy Land she begins her journey in to the local area, determined to enter a convent for safety reasons as soon as possible. Instead she is talked in to becoming Chatelaine of Passfair Castle, it seems as good a place as any to stay safe for a while. That is until she meets a certain handsome yet brutal knight whom she cannot get out of her mind - and struggles more and more to protect her heart from.

You'll read of bandits, the rescue of a fair maiden, desperate battles and the all too real threat that is every day life in the middle ages - with not one but two love stories woven throughout the tale.

What an absolute pleasure it always is to read this story, I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Wings of the Storm is a time travel novel, with a twist. Dr. Jane Florian goes back in time, using a time machine. Her voyage was not by choice, and she is not a happy camper. In fact, she is downright pi**ed off.

Jane is a strong heroine. She has no idea where she is or what she will have to do to survive. She meets these challenges head on. She is no scared ninny, which we often see in time travel romances. She makes a place for herself in the home of young Lord. While living there, she meets Sir Daffy.

Sir Daffy is hot. That is really all I can say about him. Even though he was the hero, his role was limited. Yes, he is a bad ass warrior. But, you do not really see much of this. This was decently not a character driven romance.
My favorite part of this romance was the in-depth view of everyday life during the middle ages. We got to see how a castle was run. It was amazing.

Now, it's time to rant! This book was not a romance. Yes, there was a little romance. But this was more of Time travel/historical fiction. Because it was marketed as a romance, I ended up disappointed. So do not go into Wings of the Storm looking for romance.

Would I recommend it? Not to a romance junkie. Yes, to a historical fiction lover.

This book was given to me for an honest review. Thank you NetGalley and TKA Distribution.
