Named a Notable Fiction Book of 2013 by The Washington Post

“An engrossing adventure, with mystery, romance, humor, and impeccable historical detail.” –The Boston Globe
Devon, 1815. The charming Lord Nicholas Davenant and the beguiling Julia Percy should make a perfect match.
But before their love has a chance to grow, Nicholas is presumed dead in the Napoleonic war.
Nick, however, is lost in time. Somehow he escaped certain death by leaping two hundred years forward to the present day where he finds himself in the care of a mysterious society – the Guild. Questioning the limits of the impossible, Nick is desperate to find a way back to the life he left behind. Yet with the future of time itself hanging in the balance, could it be that the girl who first captured his heart has had the answers all along? Can Nick find a way to return to her?

What started out as a wonderful mix of historical and time travel sci fi became a mediocore romance. I wanted to scream when the previously rational hero suddenly started musing over a young woman' s derriere! Also the constant silly mistakes he makes in customs and manners when he returns to his own time period made me want to grind my teeth. Soon I found myself flipping pages until I was just skimming this very disappointing novel. And to tout it as a mystery baffles me utterly. Truly the only mystery is why I kept wasting my reading time on it.

Very Good Time Travel Book!
June 9th, 2013
This book was quite entertaining. The characters were good, the plot nice and twisty, and it moved well. My biggest criticism is that it ended rather abruptly. I was actually astonished and left open mouthed when I realized I had reached the last page with so much of the adventure unresolved. Of course! It must be the first of a series. I am now salivating to get to the next one. I truly recommend this book.
