From Publishers Weekly
In her hardcover debut, Deveraux ( The Taming ) offers an imaginative romantic historical fantasy, whose virtue of unpredictabiity is undermined by plodding, graceless prose. Vacationing in England with her lover, Robert, and his spoiled teenage daughter, heroine Dougless Montgomery is abandoned by them in a remote country churchyard near the tomb of Nicholas Stafford, an earl who died in 1564. Almost immediately, an armor-clad swashbuckler materializes--Nicholas himself, reincarnated in the 20th century to clear his reputation, having been unjustly convicted of treason. Intrigued by his plight, Dougless agrees to help Nicholas learn his accuser's identity and restore his good name. They become lovers, and their adventures briefly lead Dougless back to the 1560s, allowing Deveraux to portray that period from a contemporary woman's perspective, as well as 1988 through the eyes of a confounded Elizabethan nobleman. Well-detailed historical highlights and a heartwarming conclusion will enhance the novel's commercial appeal to those Deveraux fans willing to lay out the extra cash for froth bound in hardcover. Doubleday Book Club main selection; Literary Guild alternate.

This book from Jude Deveraux was so perfect.
I've fallen in love with the whole story.
Sometimes when I get tired I find myself skimming a bit ahead. This book I made myself put it down when I was tired and would only pick it back up when I knew I would refrain from skimming.
Every part of the story was an adventure. I cried and laughed and loved and wanted and was satisfied and then wanted some more. I will want some more.... I won't give you the ending but lets just say life always has a beginning and with this book it keeps giving and giving and giving. At the end you will feel it was not only worth the money but also the time to devote yourself to a story told really good!
I love how her take on time travel is different than other books. It's just a fun read.
**I will say that reading this as a 38 yr old instead of a teen...I do roll my eyes a bit at the plot some times, or the character's reactions...but that's part of romance novels, no? ;)
