What I did really love were the pop culture references - quotes from The Princess Bride and, of course, the Star Wars references. I don't want to include any spoilers so let's just say, I was reading this on a plane and actually broke out laughing.
I saw one of the "twists" coming and perhaps Miss Van intended to give you that little carrot by some of Kit's language, but the final twist, no way could I have seen that coming. I'm not too sure I believed it though to be quite honest, but hey, I'm happy to just go with it. No spoilers, you'll just have to read it for yourself - and I would recommend you do.
Although you don't have to read the series in order, I did and I would recommend it as you'll have more insights. However, each book can stand on its on. There are no cliffhangers.
Again, I can't recommend this series enough. If you're looking for a well written clean romance series with some mystery, humor and excellent character development, House of Oak is the ticket.
Marc Wilde (32) doesn't do serious relationships. He doesn't do love or commitment and he's resigned himself to probably never falling in love....because that kind of serious emotion genetically wasn't in him. Or so this is his theory. Marc is a British/American martial arts, low budget "B" movie, actor...living wherever his movie roles/career takes him. He has dark hair and gorgeous bottle green eyes. Marcus Wilde is one hawt yummy piece of cheeze....self assured, confident and capable. He's lethally beautiful. A testosterone menace...and he finds himself accidentally hurled 200 years back in time...to 19th century England.
30 year old Katherine (Kit) Ashton has been forced from her elite place in society into working as a companion for an aged woman. She's a lady of genteel birth, supposedly fallen on hard times. She's not the kind of woman to be infatuated with a handsome face. She's confident, feisty and not easily rattled, with long auburn hair and gorgeous, warm golden brown eyes. She's 5'10"...a tall woman. She's smart....intelligent...not silly or naive.
This is the third story of the HOUSE OF OAK SERIES. The first two books are Intertwine and Divine (House of Oak Book 2) and even though this story stands on its own, I felt more "settled" into this story by knowing the history of previous characters/plots. We discover the portal to time travel that lays hidden inside an old oak tree and through that portal Marc travels back to the year 1814 where his adventure begins. I loved both Marc and Kit as individuals but I never did connect to them as a couple because their relationship happens too quickly without any deep intimacy. There's lots of attraction, fun, laugh-out-loud word play and flirting. But no acting on their mutual attraction....no deep, serious, intimate moments which makes the whole scenario of them (as a couple) hard to believe...even while you read it in progress. They never act upon their feelings. Still, I did enjoy this story of mild suspense and subterfuge. Marcus Wilde is such a fun, likable character. His laid back, easy going attitude is such a hoot around stuffy, staid nineteenth century gentlemen.
