Tara O'Neill graduate student studying history who works at a local radio station. One evening when a
violent storm spawns power outages, she must keep broadcasting severe warnings to local residents. Quickly the storm intensifies and the station goes off line forcing Tara must reboot the transmitter . While in the process of doing just that lightning strikes and Tara is hurtled back in time.
Adrian, Lord Dillon, needs a bride, immediately, to escape his enemy's plan to force him to marry his daughter. He has always respected the Fairy Race. As a boy, he played with them in the secret glen and was warned that one day he would be called upon to shelter one of their own who has lost her way among mortals . . .
Adrian rescues Tara from British soldiers who are prepared to torture her for information. He takes her back to his castle and concocts a plan to protect them both.
When Tara wakes up in Lord Dillon's castle she only remembers bits and pieces of her life before meeting him, but with little other choice she falls in line with Lord Dillon's plan. However, in her heart she knows that she does not belong in this place. This feeling is only reinforced by her mother-in- law and the other characters she comes in contact me.
As the story progresses Tara and her husband travel to Dublin, and she learns the truth about her husband and his role in the Irish rebellion against England. Tara knows that the rebellion will fail although she can not remember or explain how she does. And that is when the fun really starts.
I truly enjoyed this book. The Tara and Adrian were well developed who I wanted to see succeed. The plot was complex and well thought out. The author did an excellent job of incorporating historical facts without bogging down the story and her attention to detail was great. As a reader I could clearly picture each scene. The secondary characters in the story were well written and added to the story. I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys Time Travel Romance.
It was the right book at the right time, for me. Tara, the leading lady in this time-travel romance, is a grad student in Irish history, working at a rural radio station. During a severe thunderstorm she and another radio station employee are repairing the station transformer when lightening strikes through the transformer and both are transported through time and space to 1800s Ireland (though the two are separated for quite a number of pages to come).
She is rescued from a bad situation by a masked man, and deposited at the castle of Lord Dillon who has been fending off a political blackmail scheme by the local sheriff who wants him to marry his daughter, by saying he's expecting his fiance from America any day now. He takes up the mystery woman as his ficticious fiance and she goes along with it, having suffered amnesia and being none the wiser to the truth.
There is quite a lot of historical information about Ireland vs. England of the time, intrigue involving the leading man and his undercover activities in the Irish Rebellion, along with a bit of paranormal theme involving Faeries. He actually thinks she is Fey, sent to save him from his enemy's clutches. She is simply confused in her amnesia.
Her coworker from the radio station does find her and takes on the roleplay of her Father accompanying her to Ireland but them having been separated in the shipwreck of the night they 'arrived'. Lord Dillon thinks the Fey have sent both a bride and her father. It's rather comical drama and I enjoyed that part very much. Not just a straightforward canned romance story.
Indeed this book departs from the expected formula and there is a very cool bit of paranormal spice added to the whole package towards the end.
Time Travel, clever twists, an aging hippy thrown back to the old days, a sharp minded sharp tongued woman (despite her amnesia), and a wonderful paranormal surprise along with historical romance. Despite my initial misgivings and dithering to finally read this, I am very glad that I did. It wasn't perfect, but it was very good in my opinion.
This story has everything I love - time travel, fae magic, and historical romance. The mix of fantasy and reality is very well balanced.
One criticism is that there are too many pop-culture references. I find that these kind of references generally highlight the differences between the reader and the author in taste and/or age and prevent the reader from escaping into the fictional world. And although it was a nice ending, it didn't feel as resolved as it could have. There will likely be a sequel, but the unanswered questions have more to do with what has happened than what will happen.
