Overview

Gemma Hart never knows when her father is going to whisk her back in time. Her toes start tingling and she has a few minutes to find a secret haven where she can disintegrate and appear in another time and place. While “across the line,” her training and skills are put to the test as she completes a mission that will change history for the lucky few her father has selected.

Gemma's parents are adamant that secrecy is paramount to her family’s safety. If people knew what they were capable of, they could be "used and abused", as her mother always says. Afraid she might accidentally utter the truth and break the ancient oath of her people, Gemma spends her school days as a loner. Only one thing can throw her sheltered life askew... Harrison Granger.

Harrison never expected to talk to the strange Hart girl, but after a brief encounter he can't stop thinking about her. He begins a campaign to chisel away her icy veneer and is met with unexpected consequences. As he slowly wins this girl over, he enters a surreal world that has him fighting to keep his newfound love and his life.

Black Blood (Bk 2) and Pure Blood (Bk 3) also available.

I was overly excited to begin reading book #1 in the Time Spirit Trilogy Golden Blood written by a wonderful author Melissa Pearl. Within a few pages I was completely hooked and had a hard time putting it down. Melissa Pearl wrote a wonderful story about time travel, family loyalty, secrets and first love. Because of their DNA Gemma, her parents and twin siblings can travel into the past, change the wrongs and make the world a better place. Fearing people will use their gifts for personal gain Gemma walls herself of from the world to protect the family secrets. Gemma has admired Harrison from afar for some time now when her accidentally catches her on a return from one of her trips into the past. Now she must decide to follow her heart or keep her families secret. Golden Blood is a uniquely written story. The relationship between Gemma and Harrison become one of those great star crossed love stories and you can't help but root for their relationship to be allowed to continue. Golden Blood is filled with romance and exciting thrills that keep you entertained until the very end. Just when you think you know where the story is heading Melissa Pearl takes a complete twist that has you slightly panicking for Gemma an Harrison. I cannot wait to read what she has in store for Gemma and Harrison with book #2 in the Time Spirit Trilogy Black Blood.

I really loved this book. I loved it so much that I finished it in one sitting and was immediately ready to read the next book in the series. This is the best free book that I have ever read and I loved the idea of the secret that Gemma and her family are hiding. I strongly recommend that you read this book.

The plot is great for starters. The whole story line kept up the pace for the amazing journey. It is one of my favorites now. It never felt the least bit boring. I can't wait until I get started on number two! Anyone who loves books should read this no matter what genres they may enjoy. I hope you read the book. Another wonderful book is Wrapped by Jennifer Bradbury. Also check out Nicholas Sparks. (He is my FAVORITE author by far!) Enjoy! I hope this review helped. HAPPY READING! JESSICA

I only read this for the time travel aspect. Romance is unrealistic in books, at least to me.

I loved how different all of these books were. The ending to the series was a nice curve ball that wrapped everything up without leaving anything untouched. The writing is so well done and I couldn't put my nook fown, then I bought number 2, finished it and went straight to book 3! I read all three in in 4 days. Seriously! Best YA books Ive read in a long time!
