I read Chris Karlsen's first book 'Heroes Live Forever' at the insistence of a friend. I really had no interest in time travel. Boy! Was I surprised! Now I've read 'Journey in Time' and just like Karlsen's first book, I was totally involved with her characters. I not only liked them, I also learned through them. Karlsen does her homework and I was the beneficiary.I hope there is another book soon.

Loved this wonderful time travel romance! Shakira is one of my favorite female characters- she's smart, beautiful and doesn't take crap from anyone. It's obvious Karlsen has done her homework in regard to the historical aspect of the book- I loved how Shakira's viewpoint made me feel as though I was there, experiencing the 14th century as a contemporary woman would. This is a great follow up to Heroes Live Forever. Read it, buy it. I know you won't be disappointed.

Alex is in the music business, and Shakira plays guitar on the weekend in a friends band. Alex wants to meet her, but she is not interested, and she keeps disappearing and hiding from him. She thinks he is with someone, and does'nt care for any out with one person and looking for someone else. They get thrown back in time to the 1300's.where he has been with Knights It is an interesting plot with lots of up's and down's with very good characters. Chris Karlsen writes a very good story, with great people in them. The story keeps you reading, and you find you do not want to put the book down.

This is an intriguing time-travel romance full of emotional angst and vividly depicted scenery. I found myself drawn to many of the characters and rooted for their happiness every step of the way, particularly amongst the male characters. Alex/Guy, whose story was touched on in the previous book, is one of the male characters that I'm particularly drawn to. He's charming and protective of those he cares for and easily navigated between the past and present. He always tried to do the honorable thing even when the course was not an easy one and I admit to a bit of a crush on him. His fellow knights Simon and Stephen were also appealing with vivid and immensely likable qualities. I would love to see more of these characters and with a word of warning given to Stephen late in the story I have high hopes of his storyline continuing.

While the males in this story are a highlight, I was a bit disappointed in the heroine. Shakira is an outspoken woman in the world of law and a musician. In the present those qualities are admirable and likable. Once in the past though a more unpleasant side of her comes out. She's only concerned with her well-being and angered that Alex adjusts so easily. She wants modern things immediately and to be treated in a modern way regardless of how it appears. During her time in the past I found her shrewish and overbearing. I'm sure that the circumstances of being thrown into the unexpected caused her unappealing nature and ultimately, once back in the present, she became more likable and worthy of the hero.

In most time-travel stories the cause of it is left unexplained for the most part. This story takes a different course and spends a bit of time debating the cause which felt out of place and was a bit too scientific.

Shakira is a beautiful, detail-oriented, practical London attorney, who plays guitar in a band on weekends. She holds herself aloof from the groupies and avoids involvement. One night at a charity event she is twirled onto the dance floor by Alex Lancaster, a handsome playboy. Shakira isn't overwhelmed by Alex's attempts to charm her but she is intrigued by the kiss he steals.

Once Alex discovers who Shakira is he pursues her in earnest. He decides to hire her to represent him in a malicious sexual harassment case when she expresses complete faith in him. This is good because he'll get to be near her but bad because her ethics dictate that she not become involved with a client.

Alex finally talks Shakira into a friendly visit and horse ride on his beautiful country estate. Unexpectedly they are caught in a time warp and find themselves in medieval England. Alex seems right at home as everyone greets him and he easily steps into the life of Baron Guy Guisard. Shakira is shocked and doesn't know how she could survive in this strange time without Alex there to help her. But if they don't return to the present she might lose him as the King plans to send him to France to fight in the battle of Poitiers. First though, they have to face the King's plans to marry Alex to a noblewoman and to give his `mistress' to a rich merchant in town.

Alex exhibits extreme, and unwarranted, jealousy and fierce possessiveness. He does not want to acknowledge any depth of feeling for Shakira and he has vowed never to marry. Shakira suffers physical danger, emotional stress and the pain of falling in love with a man who will never return the sentiment. Both of them make separate plans on how to escape the danger of Alex having to go off to war where he is likely to die.

This is the second book in a duology (I don't see much need for another in the series given all the ends appear to be tied up nicely). If you can suspend disbelief, it is a good read. I prefer less graphic love scenes myself but apparently other readers like it. The characters are interesting but the romance part of the plot is the usual misunderstandings between the potential lovers that are eventually resolved. Despite the time travel, this is more fantasy than science fiction.
