The story if annoying was well written at times, but all the back and forth in her mind got me out the story and worked me last nerve...
Ok imagine a rather tense stressful moment , say she's just walked up outside a room and over hears a conversation that upsets her greatly,she's contemplating her next move ,or she fearful or frightened or what ever it is that's got her the slightest bit upset or stressed and suddenly in her head or dreams she's either reliving a moment in the past or having imaginary one to help teach her something and it's happens again and again and again ,honestly at 1st the confused me ,then they just started to annoy me then piss me off as I started to skim through them,for me they took me out of the story and hurt its flow .... Not that having such indecisive leads didn't help that at times..
I wanted to like Gracen,he didn't start off to bad even if neither MC's description fit what you see on the cover in the slightest , Gracen was supposed to Blonde and she's supposed to have black hair not what looks like Auburn as least to me and the woman in the cover doesn't look like a woman who could or would very easily be seen as a man no matter what she's wearing...
If a seemingly weak kinda wishy washy H ,unable to decide what he wants or stand up for it wasn't bad enough,the book ends at 49% soo you can read Dom X ?
Your gonna end a Historical Romance/Time Travel soo I can Read a book called Dom X ?
Why ?!?! Based in the theory that after part one of a Historical Time Travel story I'm in the mood for BDSM ?!?!?
Shakes head , How the Hell do you figure that ?
Then there's another story after that ...
I don't know mi just don't know ... I'm at a loss...
Personally I'm insulted, cut this story short to offer me something I never asked for or wanted...
Maybe that's not how it was meant but if it was gonna be done ?
It should have been something that went with the theme they had already been committed to ...
Not going from the historical time travel romance to bdsm ...
Unless there had been bdsm in the story which I can assure you there was not ...

The American Revolution is a fascinating period which I haven’t seen used as the setting of many romances (or have I just missed them?). There’s so much to love: the era is full of intrigue, hope, courage, fear… so much fodder for the Romantic imagination! The time-travel idea may seem to be passé as it’s been used in Romance novels simply forever, but it doesn’t feel that way in “Fire and Honor”. There’s even some loving nods to popular time travel romances in the book that made me smile.
I love that Honor, our Heroine, is very typical of her time, while Gracen, our Hero is also typical of his own. Honor is practical, with excellent survival instincts (which is totally logical, since she is a Soldier). She knows she should keep a low profile, so there’s no crazy insistence on modern forms of behavior on her par, or anything like thatt; she doesn’t demand sexual equality, for example. We all know that doesn’t come along in America for many generations, of course… at the same time, Gracen acts normally for a male of his time, albeit one who is a deep thinker, weighing his actions carefully before making decisions.
Both characters seem very real and approachable, which in turn makes their situation feel more real and more urgent. Honor has no idea how she ended up where and when she did, she can only do her best to acclimate to her surroundings, try to remember her history lessons to avoid disaster, and try not go crazy thinking about accidentally changing history.
Gracen is so interesting, because he’s not what I first thought he would be. He’s a man caught in between two opposing ideas, which most men of his time had to struggle with, too. How do you keep from picking sides? What do you do when you don’t agree with your family and your peers, but you also don’t agree with the other side? How many men and women faced this same choice?
For Honor, not only is she a woman out of Time, but she just left a warzone, and is having serious doubts about her fiancé. She’s only just realizing that she needs more out of their relationship, and he simply can’t provide it. He’s never supported her Military career, for starters. It’s a hard pill to swallow, realizing that the only man you ever thought you would love isn’t the man you believed him to be. After years of defending him to her own family, she finally starts to think that maybe there were valid reasons why they didn’t like him?
Trying to explain anything else would give away the best parts of the story, and you really need to read it for yourself! I loved how real Gracen and Honor feel, how real Gracen’s time feels, how real their interactions with each other feel. Time travel romance novels abound, but this one is a gem. It’s more Historical Fiction than a simple Historical Romance. The writing is excellent, the characters’ voices distinct, and the language never feels “off” (no modern slang being used by people from 1775, etc.). I’m dying to know where Honor and Gracen go from here! I was so invested in them that I hated getting to the end of “Fire and Honor.”
MS Parker has always delivered excellent romance novels, but she has seriously outdone herself with “Fire and Honor.” Do yourself a favor, and give this a try. I promise, you will not be disappointed. I hope the next book comes out quickly, so that I can read more about Honor and Gracen as soon as possible!
A medic in the Army is not a doctor. She couldn't leave the army and start a medical practice, she doesn't have a medical degree. The author makes you believe she can. She talks about crashing her car and that they would need a doctor and she would be the first on the scene.
The hero....don't get me started. What a jerk and a fop! I didn't like him from the start and then all the nasty things he said to Honor. She just forgives him and they are in love. He is so....I don't know how to explain..not heroy...I know not a word. He just isn't hero like he is hero lacking.
Not reading the next.
The other weird thing - Gracen is described as having long blond curls and Honor has ebony black hair....that's in the first book. In the 2nd book, Gracen has the raven black hair and Honor all of a sudden has chestnut brown hair. Doesn't this author even know her characters. This is like really bad continuity in a movie!!!
Despite all that, I'm enjoying the 2nd book and will read the 3rd one, just to see what happens to them.
