"Time travel and romance converge in this tale of star-crossed love"
-Publishers Weekly Review of The Legend of the Bloodstone 2013 ABNA Quarterfinalist manuscript

In 2012, a woman cuts her hand and picks up a strange colored stone -
Suddenly she is staring into the eyes of an angry Powhatan warrior.
And the only town nearby is Jamestown, circa 1622.

Maggie McMillan wakes up one day as a college student, yet ends the day in 1622. Captured by Winn, a warrior who is torn between his duty to kill her and his desire to keep her, she is thrust into a life she had only read about in history books.

Hunted and feared by both the Powhatan and the English, she struggles to find a way home while Winn plots to keep her there. Maggie fights to survive as she finds herself entangled in the Indian Massacre of 1622, and Winn sees everything he ever believed in shattered by the knowledge she holds.

As they battle against each other and the message she brings from the future, she must decide whether to return to her own time, or to make a life in the past with the man who holds her heart captive.

This is not the typical time travel tale, but it is the typical bodice ripper. Only the characters have changed. An Indian from the past and a white woman from the future, meet for heat in in the space time continuim. This was well edited, with quite a bit of cursing, rape, murder, violence, Indian wars, torture, bigamy, rather detailed steamy sex, some humor, head butting and all the usual related to historical romances. Cliff hanger ending. Prepare for book two coming soon in the future. Chick lit. Adults AD

`Legend of the Bloodstone' written by first time novelist E.B. Brown is an incredible novel that will disappoint few. Promoted as historical romance and romantic fantasy, Ms. Brown's novel offers an adventure that transcends genres, and will appeal to male readers as well as female. The story is fast paced and never stalls given readers a view of early America with dangers around every turn. Set against the backdrop of early Native American life, Ms. Brown's world comes alive with a strong knowledge of history and Native American culture that never becomes over-bearing or intrusive to the story. Ms. Brown deftly avoids the pitfalls of information dumping that can drag down a historically based novel Maggie McMilian, the stories protagonist, is a fully realized character readers can cheer for and feel sympathetic in her adventure to find a place in this strange yet familiar new world. The play between Maggie and Winnkeohkwet (Winn) is pitch perfect as each seeks to understand the behaviors of the other. Maggie's strong independent persona feeds the attraction the great Indian warrior has for her yet it easily becomes a thorn in his side as well. It's fascinating to watch these two characters grow to understand each other. We also are left with questions and hints of things to come in this first book of a trilogy. I don't want to reveal any spoilers by I am interested to see the direction the story takes regarding the Bloodstones as well as other Time Walkers. In this aspect, Ms. Brown, left me itching for more of the lore around these stones that act as a catalyst for the Time Travel aspect of the story. Of course I am sure that was the idea. Ms. Brown balances the story with enough action, romance, and history to pull the reader along and offers numerous cliffhangers to keep us on the edge of our seats. From bloody battles to intensely erotic encounters it's hard to believe that you are reading a first time author. Ms. Brown is a talented new writer and I look forward to reading the rest of her Time Walker trilogy as well as all of her other future works

Not my normal read, but the striking cover made me take a chance. This book is heavy on the romance, yet it delivers on the time-travel theme as well. I liked the fiesty protagnoist, Maggie, and the way she butted heads with the hero, Winn (can't pronounce or spell his Indian name, sorry). I like books that don't waste time with pages upon pages of descriptive backstory; this author did a nice job keeping the excitement rolling while feeding tidbits to the reader about the history and characters. I would have given it 4.5 stars, but the rating system here won't let me. Overall, this was a captivating read that kept me wanting to see what happened next.

This is a creative take on the time-travel romance theme by a new author. The writing is fresh and mostly concise, which is refreshing to see versus some of the longer books in this genre. I cared about the characters early on and was anxious to see what they would get into next. I am an avid reader of all things time travel, and think this new author has a lot to offer. From checking out the author's website, I see this is #1 in a series, so my only complaint is that I wished #2 was out now! Overall this is a great book by a debut author that I thoroughly enjoyed. I am definitely looking forward to the rest of the series as well.

I am a very alow reader so to say I finished this in two days is saying a lot. I just could not put it down and, while a little predictable at times, the story captivated me.

I am not much for romance but after reading the sample I thought I’d give it a try. It was awesome. I loved the time travel scenario back to the colonial times during the uneasy tension between the Native Americans and the English settlers. Maggie is saved by Winn and he immediately falls for her even though she it’s forbidden. This only makes the tension/passion between them more intense. The action is steady throughout the book and kept me interested. I looked forward to picking it up each time. It was a perfect balance of romance, history, and fantasy for me. There is good character development and they are well developed so you become invested in them. I immediately picked up the second book in the trilogy and look forward to see where the story goes. The author has another book called The Faithful coming out and it also looks interesting. I will more than likely picking up that one too.

Other than having waaay too much sex, I was completely enthralled by this original, intelligent, surprisingly fantastic story. To the editor...Please learn the difference between the words "then" and "than". God I hate poor editing!

If it was possible to give this less than 1 star I would. I couldn't finish it, and I generally like time-travel books. This one was boring, the characters were one-dimensional and unbelievable. Not worth taking up space on my Nook.

LOVE the story, BUT why are authors writing one story and splitting it into several books? I was left wanting to know more, but now have to buy the 2nd part.....Hmmmm

That is the most exciting book I have read this year. Never heard of the Bloodstone rock. It was very exciting all the way. The girl hurt her hand and she bleed on it.Then see saw a rock and picked it up.She thought something had bit her. The next thing she knew she wasn't at home in the barn anymore. She found herself in the woods,muddy and a bear camp walking up to her. Then she saw and Indian come up and made the bear go away. I couldn't handle that too good. So now you see what happens just picking up a rock. So if you don't like Mysteries, fighting with swords,knives ,axes, Hoe handles you are in for a treat.Beautiful Country, mountains,streams,waterfalls. this is for you. It is god enough to read again.. thanks for reading my thoughts on this wonderful book.

Thought this was a pretty good book. Complete story, no cliffhangers at the end. The hot and steamy parts werent all that hot and steamy. Kind of PG rated. It did hold my attention with the actual story though. Not sure if i will  read the next book in this series.

The kind of book where I look up from the page and it takes a moment or two for me to realize I am in my own time and place. Can't wait for payday so I can get books 2 & 3.
