Overview

Trey Dalton is having a very bad day. Someone is trying to destroy his plantation, his mettlesome aunt has come to visit, and some strange woman has appeared on his doorstep spouting some nonsense about coming from the future. Alexandra Tibideaux's day isn't any better. After racing from California to New Orleans because of an urgent message from her grandmother, Alex learns that all Grams wanted was to tour an old plantation, where Alex finds an exact likeness of herself. When curiosity causes her to touch the portrait, she finds herself trapped in the past with a man who is far too cute and too pig-headed for her taste. [Cover art Mary Z Wolf]

Editorial Reviews

Brenda Gayle
Portrait in Time is both amusing and mysterious. There are lots of twists and turns in the plot. You can never be sure who is friend or foe. You'll find some amusing as well as serious moments throughout the story. Just what are those strange moves Alex uses to protect herself? You'll have to read the story to find out. You'll never look at a portrait again without wondering....
Judith Rippelmeyer
Barbara Donlon Bradley has penned a marvelous time-travel featuring a strong, independent, modern-day heroine. Ms. Bradley uses the time-travel plot twist of disbelief, yet with a very light touch. A Portrait In Time is an absolutely delightful read, a true must-read for any lover of time- travel romances. If you've never taken the plunge, then I heartily suggest this for your first venture into time- travel.

A Portrait In Time is a very entertaining read. It has all the ingredients I love to see in a time travel romance with some few surprise ingredients. You will experience all emotions reading this book. The twists and turns keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. I will definitely look for more work from Barbara Bradley in the future. She has a warm and carefree writing style that touches this reviewer's heart.

The plot would bubble along nicely even without the added intrigue but it works well in bringing out the best in each character and a good vehicle for developing their characters and on the plus side the twist is not that easy to spot! Definitely a sigh inducing read that is difficult to but down.
Jan Crow
Barbara Donlon Bradley presents her readers with a 5 Star story of timeless love. Her characters come to life as they explore the emotions between the hero and heroine and cross the chasm of different life styles. She expertly weaves subplots into the story, each building upon the other with supporting characters that grow as the stories evolve. And her use of the modern day norm of tai kwon do as a historical phenomenon brings a unique element to the story. I applaud her in her ingenuity!
