In Bee Ridgway’s wonderfully imaginative debut novel, a man and a woman travel through time in a quest to bring down a secret society that controls the past and, thus, the future. “You are now a member of the Guild. There is no return.” Two hundred years after he was about to die on a Napoleonic battlefield, Nick Falcott, soldier and aristocrat, wakes up in a hospital bed in modern London. The Guild, an entity that controls time travel, showers him with life's advantages. But Nick yearns for home and for one brown-eyed girl, lost now down the centuries. Then the Guild asks him to break its own rule. It needs Nick to go back to 1815 to fight the Guild’s enemies and to find something called the Talisman. In 1815, Julia Percy mourns the death of her beloved grandfather, an earl who could play with time. On his deathbed he whispers in her ear: “Pretend!” Pretend what? When Nick returns home as if from the dead, older than he should be and battle scarred, Julia begins to suspect that her very life depends upon the secrets Grandfather never told her. Soon enough Julia and Nick are caught up in an adventure that stretches up and down the river of time. As their knowledge of the Guild and their feelings for each other grow, the fate of the future itself is hanging in the balance.

This book was one I simply could not put down. I was glued to my chair, reading and reading, wanting to know more. I loved Julia and Nick and can not wait to continue their story.

I love reading, but my enjoyment of the activity is somewhat hampered by the fact that I don't like romance very much. And it's EVERYWHERE. So sometimes, I just get so fed up with the literary community having an apoplexy at the thought of writing a book without a love interest that it backlashes an...

WHY THIS IS ON MY TO READ LIST: as one reviewer said, "This has everything I love in a book--getting invited to join a secret cabal! Time travel! Regency romance! Characters who are actual people! Motivations that make sense!"
