I don t read too many time travel books because it s not a plot I enjoy So it surprised me how much I loved this book Beth is a 45 year old on vacation in Scotland when she dies saving the life of a child Even though she is prepared to go on to see her two boys who had previously died, Fate has other plans It wasn t her turn to die, and Fate decides to send her back in time to fix another mistake he made Beth wakes up in a much younger body and in a much older time This book explores the idea of [...]
Unique different hot The plot concept was amazing It was very well constructed and even though everything is so far from reality, the author made it all very believable and realistic.The creativity of this book is beyond words Ms Mansfield was able to offer a twist on time travel reads, a twist on protagonist and antagonist, a play on what is evil and good Really FANTASTIC I was never sure what would come next Really, everything about this book was unexpected It keep me guessing until the end in [...]
When I first started this book, I was worried the author was giving me a tale that was a scenario I had read before, but am I glad I got past the first 2 pages This book is wonderfulYes the girl goes back in time but in a manner that is hysterical I loved the humor, the action and the steamy sex Most of all, I loved the hero and the relationship between hero and heroine Its a story about a heroine who has been hurt by past dysfunctional personal relationships and has suffered past spousal abuse [...]
I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review from LoP group.This was a sweet time travel love story I liked how the author made Beth a 45 year old divorcee who wasn t an unnatural beauty like most of the heroines are I enjoyed how Fate came in and changed history by sending her spirit to go into Elspeths body back in 1643 I especially liked how she became lady of the castle and took over lol I did not like Burt, he needed to get a beat down Her memories of how her children die [...]
I have tears rolling down my face what a lovely beautifully written story It takes you back in time and really captivates you on each page turn your hooked within the first chapter the time travelling is written in a way that blends right into history, I could not put this book down.I went on a magical journey and loved it five stars he really doesn t deserve anything less

Disclaimer I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for honest review I can never get enough of historical Scotland I love reading historical romances This book was mostly a historical romance with a dash of sci fi time travel The time traveling is of divine intervention, rather than a magical source, so if religious themes bother you, this may not be the story for you.Beth hasn t lived life to the fullest ever since the death of her two sons A middle aged divorcee with a history [...]
I don t often read this genre, but this book sounded very interesting and intriguing and it certainly didn t disappoint However, I must warn you there are several hot and steamy sex scenes so if you re not okay with that this book might not be for you.This book has a strong plot line with plot twists and fascinating characters I felt like I was swept away and transported to 1643 I was very pleased with how the time travel concept was so well constructed Sometimes time travel books seem so fake a [...]

A Soft 3 StarsSpoilersBeth was a doormat I understand it is hard for some women to get away from an abusive relationship but she was an educated woman She was a schoolteacher and the breadwinner She never once thought she should seek counseling to figure out why she puts up with her husband over the top abusive behavior Finding a women s support group or the effect this has on her children Even when she goes back in time she dreams and thinks about him constantly It seemed all her decisions were [...]
I really enjoyed the story in this book I liked the characters and the time traveling back to Scotland I especially liked the ending However, I got really distracted by the overuse of words such as clit and cunt I much prefer steamy sex scenes with a little class, such as those of Julie Garwood s stories Also, the Scots accents could have been executed a little better As they were, they just annoyed me and distracted me from the story With the time traveling and Scottish elements, it s hard not [...]
I am in love with this heroine just as much, if not than, the hero of this romance Afterall, she s me She s 40 something, but not your typical middle aged woman I don t mean in the looks department because in her physical appearance she s all too typical with hair beginning to gray and a few sizes larger than she would wish to be It s her tragic life experiences that set her apart from most However, fate bestows on her a second chance at life, and the hardest thing this woman will ever do is le [...]
2.5 stars This book was OK I got sucked in by the time travel romance hook but the book never really delivered The characters are interesting people who I wanted to root for But the plot was a little formulaic The h spent a lot of time in her head and some of her conclusions were ridiculous and I got tired of her nonsense about her previous life It went on a little too long She was 45 years old for heaven s sake Grow up and get over yourself.I did enjoy the epilogue It was a nice touch.
OMG Maxine is an amazing writer She tells her story the story with such passion and strength The she paints a picture of love and lust with every stroke of the pen As a man I m not an avid reader of erotic fantasy but Maxine has hooked me with one novel She is an amazing writer and and amazing woman Her love scenes are steamy, erotic, and amazing In my next life I want to be Lard Quinton MacLeod.
New spin on time travelThis was an interesting story with a new spin on time travel The romance was wonderful the characters were likable The villains were bad but the good wins in the end You can t predict the outcome due to twists turns in the story The epilogue was terrific and I just wanted it to go on longer Well worth reading.
So differential in the best way I really liked that the storylines is different from all of the others I have read before, and such a surprise ending I m sure you will enjoy it as much as I.
Great ReadGreat Read for anyone who is looking forward to reading a great story Please enjoy and good luck Great job
Absolutely a winner Wasn t sure what to expect, but charming works As always great characters, amusing a and fun Nice twist in the end, too.
