Setting: Medieval England, 1260
Sensuality: 7
Jessica Blakely appears to have it all as composer-in-residence at a prestigious university. But what she really wants is a husband and family. On a trip to England, Jessica walks in an estate garden and wishes on a star for a "fair and gallant knight... a man to love me at least as much as he loves himself." Within moments fog rolls in, and when it lifts the garden is gone and she's swept up by an armored knight, narrowly escaping being trampled by a mounted hunting party. Richard of Burwyck-on-the-Sea hates having to be chivalrous, but as leaving the lovely woman isn't an option, he carries her home with him.

The fact that Jessica is far, far from Manhattan takes only a little while to sink in, as does the realization that this bold, brash knight is the man for her. But for Richard, whose own dreams of happiness were beaten out of him as a child, it takes a little longer to accept that Jessica is the mate that fate and time have sent him. But even if Jessica wants to stay in 1260 England with her battle-hardened knight, will the forces that drew her to him across time allow her to remain? And if Richard gives his wary heart into Jessica's keeping, can he be sure she won't carry it away with her into the future and leave him alone?

Kurland has a talent for mixing the pageantry of medieval England and the romance of knightly chivalry with the gritty reality of everyday life. Add a brooding hero and a feisty heroine, a plot that avoids cliches, and a unique voice from Kurland that's downright charming, and you have The More I See You. --

So sweet and romantic. Wonderful time travel story, with a little bit of everything thrown in, including excitement, adventure and danger. LOVE how this author has relatives/friends/acquaintances carry over between books. They're almost like a bunch of old friends.

Another great novel from Lynn Kurland. Modern Jessica wishes on a star and finds herself in medieval England. There she meets Richard de Galtres, a knight with deep emotional scars and no time for romance. Their story plays out beautifully, with a semi-bittersweet ending. I especially like the way Ms. Kurland weaves characters from her other novels into this one. You almost feel like they are family. I would suggest this book to anyone who loves a good, romantic love story.

Entertaining time travel romance with a modern woman traveling to medieval France. Kurland has a sharp eye for medieval detail, sure hand for dialogue, and a talent for developing the main characters. Secondary characters are stock characters, but they entertain and serve a purpose nonetheless.

This was an okay book. Jessica is a very strong character, but I really didn't like Richard very much. The plot also had some big holes in it.
I loved the mention of some of Ms. Kurtland's other characters.

This Lynn Kurland book is one of my favorites--I've read it countless times, and never tired of it. The storyline is a mix of humor, romance, and pathos.
Jessica Blakely, a composer, has no luck in love: the guys she has known lack a certain chivalry, and seem more interested in themselves rather than her.
So,visiting a friend in England, she takes a walk in her host's garden--and makes a wish upon a star.
What happens next turns her life around completely, and has her dealing with the most hardheaded, crusty, gorgeous man she has ever met...seven centuries before she was ever born.
What to do now? As for Richard de Galtres--the hardhead--what is he going to do with this stubborn woman, who has a penchant for running off with his horse?
Only Time will tell...
Read the book, and get caught away in their story!

Did not want to put it down but had to sleep some time. As always, Kurland keeps you involved and wanting more.

A wish upon a star transports the luckless-in-love Jessica Blakely back in time to the thirteenth century. But her desire for a fair and gallant knight yields the fearsome Richard De Galtres. Though wary of Jessica's mysterious ways. Richard protectively harbors her in his castle by the sea. Though her stubborn will nearly drives him mad, the very sight of her puts a smile on a face that has known too few. And when Jessica's tender desire pierces the armor around his heart, Richard fears he may never be able to recover-or resist.

Jessica Blakely is a romantic, so accepting her eccentric aunts invitation to England fits right into her dreams. The only problem is her lecherous host. Wishing on a star, Jessica asks for a chivalrous man. Suddenly transported to 1260, she encounters Richard de Galtres.

Jessica now wishes she were home, but she would never wish away her growing love for the daring knight who protects her in his home by the sea. Though her modern ways nearly drive Richard mad, he falls deeply in love with Jessica and marries her.

However, the king has other plans for Richard, and when his lands are threatened, Jessica takes matters into her hands. Believing that if she were gone Richard would be free to marry as the king decrees, she fervently wishes herself back to the present.

Her wish is granted, but at what price? And is there a way for the lovers separated by centuries to be together forever?
