    A perfectly charming and exciting time travel romance

    Claire Peltier keeps having dreams of a man she doesn¿t know but who elicits emotions in her that pale in comparison to the emotions she has with her fiancé. As a result, Claire calls off her wedding because she feels it isn¿t fair to marry one man when her dreams are filled with another. Claire is haunted by these dreams and feels that it is important to solve the mystery of the man who keeps appearing in her dreams. Claire thinks that she may be reincarnated and the mystery man is from her past life. Also, Claire is occasionally visited by a ghost who never speaks a word. One evening, the ghost visits Claire but this time she dares to touch the ghost. The touch elicits a vision of a man kneeling in the center of a circle of inlaid stones on a flagstone floor. He raises his head and Claire sees that he is the man who haunts her dreams. The vision disappears but the ghost is still there. A magazine lifts itself from a rack and the pages are flipped and stop at a page containing a picture of a circle of inlaid stones on a flagstaff floor that looks exactly like the one in her vision. Above the picture is a caption: The Ancient Labyrinth of Chartres Cathedral, France. The man who haunts her dreams is Aiden Delacroix. Aiden needs a wife so he can have an heir to the Delacroix Castle, but no woman in his time will accommodate his need because they believe the ghost of his former mistress haunts him and brings misfortune to everyone associated with him. Claire takes a plane to France and visits the Chartres Cathedral with the hope of finding out who the mystery man of her dreams is. When visiting the cathedral, the ghost appears and leads Claire through the labyrinth. When Claire takes the last step into the center of the labyrinth she is unknowingly transported back in time to the year 1202 and finds herself standing in front of her mystery man as he is kneeling in the center of the labyrinth just as she had seen him in her vision. She reaches out to touch him and discovers that he is a real man, not the ethereal form she had always seen in her visions. Throughout the story, Claire and Aiden try to determine why fate has brought them together from two different times and what is in store for them. Sandra Landry has weaved a set of charming and exciting details into a suspenseful and mysterious tale that kept me guessing (and entertained) from the beginning of the book and right up to the last page. Claire is a strong willed and independent young woman who knows what she wants and never settles for less. Aiden is a perfect hero. He is strong, an excellent swordsman, and has to rescue Claire on several occasions as she risks everything to determine the mystery of their fates. Aiden always treats Claire with the utmost of respect and is determined to get Claire to marry him. The sexual tension between the two keeps escalating until they can no longer resist and eventually yield to their desires. The mechanism that transports Claire into the past is simple and not filled with boring scientific explanations. One of the many entertaining parts in The Last Bride is when Claire is transported to 1202. She isn¿t aware of her time travel and when she leaves the cathedral she wonders why there are no streetlights, why her hotel is not where it¿s supposed to be, and why her cell phone won¿t work. Then Claire finds herself the cause of a sword fight between Aiden and drunks in an inn who had accosted Claire. Later, Claire realizes that Aiden is not the reincarnated man from her past but is the man himself. Sandra Landry has written a perfectly charming, exciting and believable time travel romance. I enjoyed the read so much that I can¿t wait for another tale. The Last Bride is a great and entertaining read and I highly recommend it.
