Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a quick read and a delightful short romance. The time-travel aspect is well done, and the characters are nicely fleshed out. The ending brings everything to a comfortable and relatively believable conclusion." - RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

"Lady of the Stars has my favorite elements...It is about time travel, has very believable characters, and it has a good story line...(The hero and heroine's) mutual love for one another was a natural development. Then when I was just getting settled in their life -- WHAM! My heart is ripped from my chest and I felt the tears coming on. What a moving scene. I thoroughly enjoyed this first story by Ms. Banche and look forward to her next release. I just know I'll love it as much as I did Lady of the Stars." - Long and Short Reviews (LASR), 4 1/2 books

"The unfolding of this story and the concept of the gazebo as the means to travel through time were intriguing.  Linda Banche created main characters that were both intelligent mathematicians and astronomers...I found the story sweet and delightful." - Two Lips Reviews, 4 kisses, Recommended Read

From the Author

Lady of the Stars was the first story I had published.

A new ebook publisher ran a contest for time travel stories, and they would publish the winner. They also promised a free critique by an editor to everyone who entered. So, I wrote a time travel about a 21st century astronomer heroine who goes back to the Regency to meet the hero. The book contains a twist, to which the book's title refers. Also, the title doesn't refer to the heroine's profession.

I didn't win the contest, but the publisher said they would accept the story if I made some changes. I made the suggested changes, and after two more tries, they took the story.

Lady of the Stars was an EPIC E-Book Competition finalist in Science Fiction Romance in 2010, received 4 stars from RT Book Reviews, and was The Romance Reviews Finalist for Best in Historical Fantasy/Paranormal in 2011.

As the years went on, I thought of things I wanted to add to the story. When I pulled the book from the publisher, I added everything that had simmered in the back of my mind for so long. And, although the original book still read well, I rewrote the entire story--I write better now than I did then. :)

The latest version is 50% longer than the original, with some holes plugged, some Point of View (POV) errors fixed, the telling, especially at the end which was mostly telling, converted to showing and the removal of a lot of "he thought, he heard, he saw".

I hope you enjoy Caroline and Richard's story.

I gotta say, this is one of the best time travel novellas I’ve ever read, and I’ve read quite a few. The story was amazing, and in two parts. One when Caroline went back in time and part two telling the story of what happened when she got back. A great love story of time travel through the centuries.

I loved both Richard and Caroline. They were just an awesome twosome. And I like Richard’s mother. I couldn’t stand Susan Chiswick.

There were a couple of little swearwords in this and a little sexual attraction but NO sex, ok there was a little playing beforehand. Which didn’t matter since it was such a wonderful story.

I was hesitant about paying $2.99 on 125 pages but I decided to give it a try and I’m so glad I did. I thought it just an awesome story and I will definitely read it again.

FYI author, at 91% when Richard was talking to Stephen it said, "Will's heart softened further." There was no Will in this book.

This was a little bit different twist on the time travel books I've read before, and I found it an enjoyable read. With a romance tied into a 200 year difference, there is plenty of angst just from the differences in each time period. And when you add in an enemy with an agenda, you have an added problem.

Our H and h do achieve an HEA but, perhaps, not quite as expected. Still a very enjoyable and fairly quick read. I like Ms. Banche's books and will be reading more in the future.

Review Courtesy of April Hollingworth

I found this book enchanting and fascinating. The idea of the distant past and present meeting and bringing two people together, is beautiful. The thought of finding your soul-mate in another time, finding him and falling in love makes my heart race just that little bit more.
Especially when you have two characters like Richard and Caroline both with similar interests. Both having loved before and unsure if they will ever find love again, and both of them understanding that though their hearts might beat for each other, destiny might tear them apart just a easily as it brought them together.
A must read novella, so beautiful I can't help smiling. A book I will read again and again. I adored it!
