Overview

When her controlling husband refuses to grant a divorce, Jessica Bragg doesn't get mad - she gets even. Taking a hidden stash of cash from his desk, she starts a new life as a reporter in West Virginia. Covering Civil War reenactments isn't exactly headline-making until an eerie flash of light brings her face-to-face with a living, breathing, strapping hunk of a Confederate soldier . . .

Colonel Thaddeus MacAllister can't explain how he ended up in his old homestead after 150 years-or why its beautiful new occupant reminds him of his own beloved wife. But when Thaddeus takes Jessica into his arms, it's as if he's known and loved her forever. Soon these star-crossed soulmates must fight for every moment together . . . before time runs out again.

I've not read this author before, but will again. Thoroughly enjoyed the time travel aspect of this book, which is my favorite genre. Well written!

I couldn't get over all the stereotypes. Her husband was a super right-wing golden boy, therefore rich, shallow, violent, hypocritical, and crazy religious. Thanks, but that's not what we are like. The author didn't hide their dislike of conservatives well. It made it hard for me to read.

I'm not a great lover of historical romance, but when the past and the present collide? That is a trope I have recently become quite the fan of and Chloe Douglas has delivered a captivating modern day romance with a historical twist. When Jessica Reardon flees her vile misogynistic husband and starts life afresh as a journalist in West Virginia covering, amongst other things, Civil War reenactments, the last thing she expects is for one of the participants to turn up on her doorstep, unwell, in full Confederate Army attire and sporting a beard to rival ZZ Top. That would be Gideon MacAllister; not exactly a reenactment participant, but the homesteads former owner, real soldier and a man very confused as to why there's a woman in his home. "Look at the date!" "September 25, 2014. what's the problem with that?" "The problem is when I awoke yesterday morning, it was September the twenty-fifth... eighteen sixty-four." Our Time is Now is a lovely romantic journey of soul mates - the Civil War era is merely the time period and it does not go much more detailed than Gideon's marriage. Set in the present day with flashbacks to the 1800's, both Jessica and Gideon's pasts have been painful but they have an inexplicable instant attraction and the present holds many more unanswered questions. The crossing over between time periods is seamless, valuable to the story and with so much more to this novel than the synopsis suggests, it was a pleasure to read. I loved the balance between chivalry and sexy; Gideon is ever the gentleman in his mannerisms, speech and bedroom activities, but with a strong-willed 21st century lady educating him on every aspect of modern-day life (some of his horror was hilarious), his and Jessica's journey was heartwarming and held surprises. 'This is a century full of promise and possibility. But it's also one in which the past is clearly cherished.' Whilst this is the second book in the Time Wanderer series, I do believe it can be read as a standalone - I spotted what could be a small reference but I haven't read the first. I shall certainly be doing so. 4.5 stars. Copy received courtesy of Forever Publishing in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion.
