Interesting as a time travel book, combined with a romance. The sex scenes are very graphic.
very sexy book. great story
Robin Schone offers a time travel romance with many layers. While the heroine is misplaced in Victorian England she is confronted with many choices, if she submits to her husband's advances, is she committing adultry? While she sifts through her bewildering situation she realizes the relationship she finds herself in is a better fit than the one from her own time. The hero is a little thin skinned, but worth the trouble. As always, Robin Schone offers explicitly satisfying sex scenes and the bad characters are truely bad.
This has a great beginning and then fizzled into crap. There was a masturbation scene with the heroine (Elaine) and another one with the hero (Charles). I thought, OK, this has promise. Then Elaine time traveled and a woman (not sure what her roll was other than torturer of the woman Elaine replaced) was obnoxious to the extreme forcing Elaine to pray pray pray and repent for her thoughts (like she even had any at that point), so much that I just couldn't read anymore. Charles was never in the picture when Elaine traveled and I couldn't stand it anymore to even wait for his return. This is my first book by Robin Schone and it will probably be the last.
These characters are very well developed. The plot was interesting... AND it is a Robin Schone!
I haven't written a review in years, probably. This book charmed me so much that I must recommend it to the serious romance reader.
While the theme is farfetched, you know, Druids and magic- the main characters are wonderfully rich and complex. I particularly like the way it deals with how they analyze and eventually begin to understand each other, even tho there is a bit too much modern anxiety in the female lead.
It is a marvelous, satisfying read. Go for it!
this story has all kinds of twists keeps you interested
It was ok. It didn't make me fall in love with the characters, and quite often the hero was annoying. However, there were some very well written parts, and the story itself wasn't bad.
From the back cover...
Elaine Metcliffe feels trapped in her marriage and hasn't felt passion in years. She awakens one morning to find herself in another woman's bed, inside another woman's body, and married to another woman's husband. Charles Mortimer, a virile nineteenth-century English baron, is a far cry from her twentieth-century husband. Bent on seducing the restful young bride he believes her to be, Charles educated Elaine in practices of physical pleasure she has never dared imagine. Torn between fidelity to the passionless man she left behind and the exquisite temptation of Charles's touch, Elaine must now chart the course of her own destiny...
it was okay. not her best. liked the tutor much better.
