"...a superbly written romantic love tale. Ms. Nutt has vividly and emotionally wrote the plot and characters in a way that the reader will become enveloped, captivated and entranced in the story." --TCM Reviews
A Gem of a Tale. The romance between Keldon and Arianna is delightful. The storyline was exciting and entertaining. I particularly think it is a stroke of genius placing a Scottish pirate in the American south.
--Bonnie-Lass, Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance

Arriana wakes up and is suddenly someone else. Her memories don't match, she knows things she shouldn't. She spends most of the novel realizing that Annabelle (the person she suddenly becomes) isn't very nice. I like the fact that she didn't realize she'd traveled through time. She thinks she has amnesia and her husband Keldon thinks that the bang on the head suddenly gave her second sight.
Keldon doesn't know what to think and he keeps waiting for her to recover her memory and realize that she isn't Arriana anymore and he's falling in love with Arriana. But there are odd things about his wife Annabelle that he can't explain, like she insists her name is Arriana. She suddenly sings (she used to screech) and she can play a harpsichord, plus suddenly, she's nice!
I love how she doesn't change history but just makes it happen again, like it did. I like how Karen Michelle Nutt added real people and historical facts to the story, the story just worked and it didn't have that Deus ex machina feel where suddenly everything is made better by some future knowledge used in a timely manner or her return to the future. Good story!
The book delivered. It was mystery, humor, emotional and in my opinion, just darn good. There are people that are evil, people that forgive them and people that never let you forget what you did 50 years ago.
I don't think you have to work at forgiveness. I think that if you have to have an evil in your orbit, they give themselves away by changing or never changing their spots.
Do I like whimsical? yeah, I do. But I also like a whimsical that forces you to see a different perspective.
Arianna Ward not only travels back in time, but switches places with the mistress of a plantation, Annabelle Buchanan. This event happens before the reader can learn very much about Arianna outside of her age, occupation and single status. In her new surroundings, it doesn't take long for Arianna to discover that everyone thinks she's Annabelle and that Annabelle was a horrible person. She accepts what people are telling her, but insists that they call her Arianna. Through words and actions, she shows that the "new Annabelle" is a good person and wants to make up for her past sins. Herein lies some of the problem I had with this book. Arianna and Annabelle are caricatures. Annabelle was Eeeeeeeeeeeeevil and I half expected Arianna to have small woodland creatures frolic at her feet. She was perfect in every way and showed little to no awkwardness in her new surroundings.
The middle of the book devolves into probably one of the worst pirate adventures I've ever read. Ships are boarded without a single shot being fired. Of course Arianna stows away on her husband's ship and enters the fray armed with a slingshot. And yes, you guessed it...she takes out multiple opponents with nothing but a stone and her trusty weapon. Why did her husband, the captain, even have that in his cabin???
There is a secondary romance that served the purpose of adding pages to the book.Read more ›
