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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

Well written and conceived. I like that the characters are flawed and certainly more complex than the usual. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Livitrumps
