Theresa Ragan does it again! A KNIGHT IN CENTRAL PARK is a delightful roller coaster ride through medieval time, which kept me laughing while wondering how in the world it was going to end. Sir Joe is every woman's dream. He'll win your heart with his modern day antics, as well as overcoming every obstacle as he rescues the heroine's sister. If you enjoy being swept away by characters that will stay with you for days, I highly recommend this read.

--Caroline Fyffe, award winning author of WHERE THE WIND BLOWS and MONTANA DAWN

From the Author

I had so much fun writing A Knight in Central Park. I always loved the idea of throwing a strong modern heroine into a world where women didn't have much say, but in A Knight in Central Park, I decided to throw a moderm man into that world instead. The hero in AKICP is a lot like my husband, Joe. My husband is not a neatfreak, but he does enjoy the modern conveniences of today's world. Don't we all. I had fun throwing Joe into medieval times, a time without toothpaste and hot showers, and watching him struggle. As always, he managed just fine and figured out what was really important in the end.

This was a funny and entertaining read. Joe (the Hero) is awesome, funny, quirky and cute. Even now I giggle remembering some of his (mis)adventures. The Heroine is Alexandra and I liked her (especially in the beginning of the book) but I felt that I would've liked to have gotten to know her better. I didn't find this book at all predictable (beside the basic expected HEA) and I really enjoyed the secondary characters, notably Garrett and Sebastiano. You have to give this book a chance, it's definitely worth it.

I purchased this book for .99 cents on my Kindle, great bargain, definitely worth more!

I saw this book title with a tagline next to it saying a must read for Outlander fans. First thing I must say is that the only thing that is comparable to this book and the Outlander series is that it involves a romance between two time travelers. But that is it. I read this book in a couple of days and it is an okay storyline. I wish it had had more depth when it came to dealing with the whole time travel aspect of it. This is why I had to write a review rebutting the comparison to Outlander. I read the Outlander series three times so far, that is how much I am a fan of Diana Gabaldon and that series. And I am pretty sure I can speak for a whole bunch of Outlander fans when I say that you simply cannot put this into the same category. That being said, this book, A Knight in Central Park, is not a bad read at all. I will admit I read it because I became fascinated with the whole aspect of a time travel romance because of the Outlander series. But I was left wanting so much more when it came to that aspect of this story. Other than that, as I said it is not a bad read and worth the small amount of money I spent reading it. I just would like to have seen more depth into the story.

I bought this as an e-book (thankfully for cheap) because I read that the author spent 5 years after reading Deveraux's "A Knight In Shining Armor" researching the period. Well I have no idea what kind of research Ragan did because a quick couple of hours scan of online history websites would have provided her with a lot more authenticity than her having a 15th century character understand the phrase "what makes you tick" or a myriad of other extremely disappointing errors.
Just recently I have read a lot of these *time slip/historical romances* and I hate to read reviews that criticize a decent author because they got a medieval vegetable wrong or some other trivial thing out of place ( I have read a considerable amount of non-fiction history books on the medieval and renaissance eras which was the root of my interest in this genre) and to expect total accuracy would be a bit much and may even distract from the actual story (those eras were not very nice, black death and all considered) To top it off the story had such great prospects until is got a bit obvious with where it was going.
I think what makes me actually angry about this book at angry at the author is that I feel she blatantly lied about researching the book's period and I find that very insulting to the reader's intelligence. I don't often leave reviews but I felt compelled to do so in this case.
Looking for fun and better accuracy try *She Owns the Knight* or my new favorite *True to the Highlander* both play a bit loose with history but they're great and fun. Looking for something more accurate than bodice ripper fare? - Outlander but it's a hefty book with it's own set of inaccuracies although the gripping story and sheer expanse of it forgives it any trivial problems

It's good that the synopsis begins with 'It's 1499', because one would have no way to guess when this 'historical' novel takes place (aside from the mention of which king is ruling England). The history is vague; I could have been convinced it took place in almost any year of the Middle Ages. The main female character contentedly settles into modern times (watching racy movies on TV)and has a very modern sensibility when she goes back to the past. The hero is a bit of a whiner, compiling a long list of things he just can't tolerate about the past, including bugs and dirt. The author doesn't seem to understand what historians actually do, for she says that her hero had never thought about what life was like for people in the past (!) and he shows very little curiosity about life in the past once he's gotten there. Despite being assured that he will return to his own time with no time having passed, he plans to return at the earliest possible moment to save his career. Apparently he's not thought of the benefits of arriving home with first-hand knowledge of the medieval era, and how that might enhance his career (even if he can't tell where he got the information, it would surely make his writing more vivid). I was constantly doubting whether this or that item really existed in 1499. This could have been a splendidly entertaining read if it had been better executed and supported by historical research.
