Hollywood, California¿s Robyn Stafford is hiking near Wales to recover from the shock of learning that her lover is married when she runs into a muddied knight. The full armored individual claims to be the Earl of March Edward Plantagenet. Robyn somehow has traveled back in time to 1459 where England is embroiled in the War of the Roses civil war. <P>At first sight Edward believes Robyn is an effeminate male due to her twenty-first century chic short hair and her sweatpants. He is a bit stunned when she uses a cell phone and shares the sweet tasting granola bar with him. Before they separate, he steals a kiss from Robyn whom he now knows is quite a woman. In her own time, Robyn learns that Edward is under a spell that one day will bring them back together. <P> Fans of time travel romance will enjoy this whimsical fantasy. The characters are fun to observe especially the lead duo¿s feelings of inadequacy and non-synchronization when living in the century of their beloved. That along with a resplendent look at fifteenth century England makes the story line entertaining as the reader believes in displacement spells. R Garcia Y Robertson paints an enticing story that sub-genre fans will find irresistible and want more novels from this talented writer. <P>Harriet Klausner

This book draws you in from page 1 and doesn't let go. With my busy schedule I don't have a great deal of time to read but I couldn't help myself from reading a few pages even at work. I'm reading Lady Robyn (the next book in the series) and I know I'm going to be anxiously waiting for book 3.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

While it enters the somewhat tired area of timetravel, this novel puts a new spin on it that keeps you going throughout. The heroine, Robyn, is entertaining and not afraid to take chances, yet she isn't so stupid as to not tell anyone where she's going! The plot keeps you guessing-from the 'widow Weirdville' and her schemes to whether Robyn's love Edward will return to rescue her (yet again!) I stayed up all night reading it and I can't wait for the sequel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

As a time travel novel that is sure to please, this fictional work embraces such a vividly detailed description of medieval life that the reader is transported back in time along with the heroine. <br><br> Robyn Stafford, young Hollywood executive, decides to surprise her British boyfriend, Collin, by flying to England to share in his birthday celebration. Imagine her surprise when his wife, Bryn, is also at the celebration. After lodging with Collin¿s sister, Jo, and her daughter, Joy, Robyn decides to hike near the Welsh border only to meet a fifteenth century knight who is Edward Plantagenet, earl of March. After a brush with Edward¿s enemies and a few moments of passion, Edward leaves Robyn with his white rose, and she returns to Jo¿s home to share the tale with her. <br><br> With the aid of a witch, Robyn is transported back to 1460 England, where she encounters evildoers and ancestors of Collin, Jo, and Joy. Forced to travail England on foot and horseback before she is reunited with Edward, Robyn is faced with tremendous adventure and not a little danger. <br><br> Combining a history lesson of the War of the Roses with this narrative tale, the reader is treated to a realistic view of medieval life, complete with unthinkable sanitary practices and lice-ridden food. As the mysteries of witchcraft are creatively explored, Robyn learns her new craft from medieval friends Jo and Joy. And the notion of a fairy-tale prince is kept alive in Edward, the man of every woman¿s dreams-sensitive, kind, fair, and handsome. Readers will be reluctant to part with Robyn and Edward and will eagerly anticipate the next two installments in this fantastic epic series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
