But, I decided to take the plunge and read The Tattooed Angel by Diana Douglas. I read it in three nights, which should say something about how much I like it. Surprised? I should say.
What is best about this book is that the characters jump off the page. Though there was one character interacting with several characters from a completely different time, they mostly stayed true to themselves and their time (though I have to admit, I probably don't know too much about being a woman in the 21st century or do I know anything about being alive in the 17th century). It was interesting to see customs, culture, attitude, and some bad language (from the modern woman) clash.
What made the book even better for me was that the romance didn't get in the way of the time travel aspect of the book. The Tattooed Angel handled the sex/romance/love angle of the story well for someone who is not a fan of the romance genre. But, romance fans, don't be drawn away from indulging in this book as it has plenty of romance elements.
The only criticism I might have is that the transition to a less modern time ( foods, illness, smells, sounds, lack of light) could have been emphasized more, but that is the fan of time travel in me speaking out when I understand that this book blended time travel and romance. And you know what, it really did blend the two genres spectacularly.
It's a great read, a great story, with great characters, and it is certainly poised for a few sequels, which I am looking forward to reading.
Nothing more nothing less...
Very imaginative but left me cold,just like them....
Ms. Douglas clearly knows what she is doing. She has done her research about England in the 1600s. All of her characters are complex, interesting, and true their voice--not a two-dimensional lad or lass in the book. She takes the reader on an adventure that rivals the best roller coaster I've ever been on. Time-travel, black magic, immortality, lessons in herbal medicines, evil villains, kind souls, political shenanigans, confused lovers...need I go on? Even though the plot of the book is outside the realm of what most people believe is possible, Ms. Douglas weaves a plausible tale full of details and dialogue that made this story work. In other words, she made the unbelievable believable. For that alone, I applaud this amazing author.
This is not your typical romance novel. That is what I enjoyed about the novel and why I urge Diana Douglas to publish the next installment of Angela's and Nicholas's tale. I will be among the first to buy it!

It will be very difficult to live in the chauvinistic world for a 21st century woman.
