England, 1605

When Lord Arik, a druid knight, finds Rebeka Tyler wandering his lands without protection, he swears to keep her safe. But Rebeka can take care of herself. When Arik sees her clash with a group of attackers using a strange fighting style, he's intrigued.

Rebeka is no ordinary seventeenth-century woman-she's travelled back from the year 2011, and she desperately wants to return to her own time. She poses as a scholar sent by the king to find out what's killing Arik's land. But as she works to decode the ancient runes that are the key to solving this mystery and sending her home, she finds herself drawn to the charismatic and powerful Arik.

As Arik and Rebeka fall in love, someone in Arik's household schemes to keep them apart, and a dark druid with a grudge prepares his revenge. Soon Rebeka will have to decide whether to return to the future or trust Arik with the secret of her time travel and her heart.

My Review:

When I began reading this story, I truly I wanted to give up. The beginning was quite slow, past and present at the beginning a bit confusing. But I am happy I did not give up because as I read on, the story picked pace and became interesting.
All in all, as a time-travel fan, Lord Arik and Rebeka’s story was a fun read.  It was good to see the how the story was unfolding, who Rebeka was, and the reason she went back in time. I love the author’s idea of how she used the runes on this particular story.  
Overall, it was a good read.

3/5 Stars

My friend and author, Victoria Watson, presented me with this wonderful award a while back. It took me a while to put it up. I am so sorry Vic. Please don't think I didn't want the award.
