This is my favorite book of all time...I ended up with about four copies, didn't want to take the chance that when I was ready to re-read it, I couldn't find it. There are unexpected twists and a heroine that many of us can identify with. She's no Julia Roberts: she's short, loves cooking and antiques. She's also the underdog we can root for, being constantly put down by her fiance' and his mother. But, Kady has heart.
Other reviewers may find fault in the technical aspects and flaws in the author's writing, but this is the book that made me fall in love with time travel romance. This is the standard I measure all others against, for sheer enjoyable reading.

About what I expect from Deveraux: an easy read, pretty obvious romance, surmountable obstacles.

Great go back in time & find love story. Deveraux's usual fun romantic romp, but through several centuries. Enjoy!

It was interesting going between present day to past history with a love story to make it happen. The cowboy and country life described were not as romantic as I had hoped. I liked this author's "A night in Shining Armor" better. The idea of the story was almost the same.

you know when you get one of those books that you don't want to come to an end? Well this is one of those reads.
.................... ......................... ....
Petite Kady Long, a celebrated chef about to be married to a gorgeous man, felt she was the luckiest woman alive. But, when she opened an antique flour tin and discovered a charming old photo of four strangers, she felt a mysterious empathy...and an irresistible desire to try on the delicate satin wedding dress, amethyst earrings,and gossamer veil that were tucked inside. Stranger still was the dizzy spell that came over her...

When she opened her eyes, Kady was in a harsh, sunlit landscape where a band of men had gathered -and a hanging was about to commence! Ever resourceful, Kady managed to stop the outlaws with a rifle shot, and rescue the victim--a tall, rangy and very appealing man.

Anxious to get back to her own time, Kady asked for the stranger's help. But Cole Jordan, of Legend, Colorado, had a prankster's streak-and she ended up his wife instead! If Kady couldn't quite figure out what made him and his town tick, she could at least dispel the notion that she was an obedient nineteenth-century bride. She would put on a fabulous feast that would cost him the moon--and be talked about forever. Meanwhile, Kady was slowly warming up to this enigmatic man-and Legend to boot. But then Cole revealed a secret that seemed to end their Colorado frontier fairy tale...and unite them in a way Kady never could have imagined.
