SEDUCING MR. DARCY by Gwyn Cready
Seducing Mr. Darcy - Gwyn Cready

This is my favorite book of hers. The geography is correct about Pittsburgh. I loved it! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is fun and funny! I could not put it down and read it in two days (I had to sleep.) Mr. Darcy is in it and there are twists and turns that keep it lively and rollicking.

Flip gets a massage and is told to think of any book she wants. She tells the masseuse one book but thinks of Pride and Prejudice and ends up there where things go topsy-turvy. Now she must correct her mistake and she takes a visiting professor of Jane Austen with her, to help her talk sense into the characters back then. Add her ex-husband and his current girlfriend and what more could go wrong?

I enjoyed the characters both modern and Austen time. I loved the time travel. The story was so much fun! I also liked Flip's revenge. Could not have happened to a better man. Flip is funny and her interactions with Magnus are a delight. She's not sure whether to kill him or love him.

Let's just say this is a keeper so I don't ruin it for others.

The Seeker: (Mortal Beloved Time Travel Romance, #3) - Pamela DuMond

 

Madeline is a teen aged, time traveling, Messenger. Her missions are to deliver messages throughout history. No message too big or too small. In THE SEEKER Madeline is on a journey to try an undo an impulsive message she has given in 1961 that has a tragic outcome in her present day life. On this journey, she learns more about herself and her real mission in life. It's been interesting seeing how far Madeline has come since learning she is a Messenger back in the first book in the MORTAL BELOVED series. I think she is now starting to better understand her life's purpose since being given this gift from her parents. Let's hope there are more books to come for our time traveler.

Echo Queen (Echo Trilogy #2) by Lindsey Fairleigh
Echo Queen: A Time Travel Romance (Echo Trilogy, #2) - Lindsey Fairleigh

I love mythology.  Echo Queen is a wonderful contemporary take using Egyptian mythology as its foundation.  The story is well-written and, the characters are well developed.  Echo Queen is extremely thought provoking.    Lindsey Fairleigh attention to detail is admirable.  Echo Queen would make an excellent movie.

The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale by Christine Bell
The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale - Christine Bell

The year is 1836. After her younger brother, Bacon, loses his time travel mechanism to the Loony Duke of Leister in a drunken card game, Stormy comes up with a plan to get it back. Although the mechanism has been disassembled just enough so that there's little chance of anyone accidentally activating it, it's too risky to go back to the 21st century and leave it behind.

Stormy's plan involves dressing as a gypsy fortuneteller, somehow luring the Duke into her tent (assuming he even walks by, and that she can recognize him despite never having met him), and then drugging him and robbing him blind. Unfortunately, things don't go quite the way she expected.

I'll start off by saying this was written in first person POV, and Stormy's “voice” was very much that of a modern American woman, even though she spent the first 13 years of her life as a grubby street urchin in 19th century London.

This was a fun and largely fluffy read that could have been so much better if it had been fleshed out more. The thing that bugged me the most was how quickly Stormy and Devlin ended up in bed together. Okay, so they had some history together, but that was years ago. They'd both been teens, and they'd both gone through a lot since then. And yes, they were both attracted to each other, but they'd only known each other as adults for a few hours. The sex happened way too quickly.

Too many events were quickly summed up, rather than shown, or briefly covered in diary entries. I'd have liked to see more of Stormy and Bacon's childhood, after they were adopted by Gilly. I'd have liked to see more of the "time pirate" aspect. I'd also have liked to see more of Devlin, who spent much of the story as a mysterious and possibly dangerous figure.

I mostly enjoyed this, although I don't know that I'll be buying the sequel.
