Overview

Broken hearts aren't always broken. Sometimes they're just bruised.

Tired of thinking about her worthless ex-boyfriend and the humiliating way in which they parted, Martha Bigalow goes on a hike hoping the dramatic hills of the English Lake District will help her to forget. But as she crosses an ancient set of stepping stones, she slips and falls into an angry river.

Time Travel. Sideways.

She wakes in cave, wearing nothing but her dodgy, mismatched underwear. Her only company is the man who saved her life: a tall, dark, and disturbingly attractive stranger named Vadim. Too bad he's a medieval re-enactor gone feral. Or so she assumes.

Crazy dream or not, it soon becomes clear that when she fell into the river she left the twenty-first century far behind... and medieval Erde is nothing like home.

Now all that stands between her and almost certain death is the crazy man with the sword. And then he offers her his protection... with the role of his "wife."

Vadim is a wanted man. An outlaw.

The last thing he needs are any complications of the female kind, but then he happens upon a strangely attired woman lying beside the river...

Martha is bold, outspoken, and altogether irreverent, and every instinct he has warns him to abandon her... only he cannot. Her allure is already much too strong. Against his better judgement, despite all the risks, Vadim offers to help Martha find her way home.

Until then, Martha must adapt to medieval society, steer clear of the Evil Earl and his minions, and maybe—just maybe—learn how to trust her heart again.

Gripping, wonderfully descriptive tale of a 21stcentury woman thrown back to a medeival time. It manages to be its own different tale among the many novels of time travel. Martha & vadim, her moody rescuer fairly sizzles with chemistry. Martha surprises herself with her strength that she never knew she had in surviving betrayal, the harsh yet beautiful environment. It is heartpounding & there is much heartbreak but she also finds love & happiness that she never thought she deserved with a complicated & tortured warrior.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book until in the last few pages it did what many TV shows do at the end of a season -- end with a new cliffhanger. Very frustrating. Although since I had planned to buy book #2 because I enjoyed book #1 so much, it won't be that hard to wait. I enjoyed the descriptions of medieval England. Hopefully the author tried for authenticity. I enjoyed seeing Vadim try to cope with Martha's 20th century mannerisms and habits. It made this a fun read.

Awesome story line. It kept you moving the intire book, never in one place too long to get board with reading. Typically when you get to the end and the main characters find each other the story ends. Not here. It took an unexpected turn and continue the story. What's even better is there is a book two, it's out and I've already purchased to keep reading. Can't wait to start reading.
