Overview

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.

    `Legend of the Bloodstone' written by first time novelist E.B. B

    `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

    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.

    300 pages

    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

    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 couldn't put it down

    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.

    a moving loving story about two people that fall in love over a period of time

    This was beautiful! Time travel at its best. A moving loving story about two people that fall in love over a period of time.  True love that never fails for them. It becomes a little dicey and heart wrenching but never fails. A fabulous HEA.I was so happy to read this book. It was so descriptive and wonderfully written.

    Maggie travels back through time to the 1600s (courtesy of a bloodstone) and does not want to, but falls in love with Winn, a grumbly, growly Native American who knows all about bloodstones but does not want to believe that she is his true mate. I fell into each page as I was transported through their world learning new things like Maggie did and finding out that heroes come in all shapes and sizes. The sweeping saga was fun to read and it never seemed to be as long as it was, and that makes it very entertaining indeed!

    Winn has a duty to kill her because of her knowledge of the bloodstone (she just had bad luck) but cannot because he loves her and there lies the issue, a large issue. Being a twenty-first century girl thrown into a world of massacres, witch hunts and bigotry on both sides, Maggie handles herself just the way I would have. Even though she remembers from her history books what will happen, handling it is another wrench thrown in to the mix. She and Winn are believable and bring reality and normalcy to this story. Cannot wait for the next in the series!!

    Loved It

    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.

    FUN and INTERESTING!

    I like historical novels and mysteries and most of them I read are not what you would call romantic. Sometimes, I have to escape to the land of "Fluff Books" which this is.

    Romance novel

    Be aware that this is a romance novel not a science fiction or fantasy novel. Yes, the story starts as time travel and then it is a pure romance novel. Not my cup of tea

    I enjoyed this book a lot, in fact, I found it hard to put down. My favorite read is historical fiction involving time travel (Diana Gabaldon anyone?) and I've always been interested in Native American culture and history, so there was no way I wasn't going to take a chance with this book. This book is fast-paced, in other words, you keep wanting to read what happens next, and it offers adequate amounts of history and adventure. It involves lots of passionate sex between the two main characters who, by the way, have been well-developed, and you get to appreciate all their different emotions. As in any good story, besides love & happiness, the main characters as well as some lesser characters also experience adequate amounts of anger, frustration, resentment, disgust, sadness, and that is what makes this story an interesting read.

    A Great Trip Through Time ! It Is Definetly Worth Your Time!

    E.B. Brown has done a marvelous job of grabbing and holding the reader. This novel introduces a unique twist on time travel. She has developed believable characters. A rugged hero tied to traditions of his time period and yet an independent thinker. E.B. also provides a heroine that doesn't simper. She is a thoughtful, provoking... modern day ...independent thinking woman. What an adventure...so many unexpected twists and turns! Can't wait for the sequel!!! A book that offers more than just romance...its for everyone. HUNGRY BOOKWORM

    This is an entertaining book about time travel that I enjoyed.  You will have to keep reading the series to really see what happens...I hope!  
    I've only finished the first book, and it just "ends."  Not a bad ending, just sort of left me hanging.  I will, of course, check out the next one
     in the series.  Since the "Indian situation" really didn't end well, historically, I'm not sure where the author will go with this.  It did have a
    bit of a surprise twist at the end that I wasn't expecting.  It just leads into the next book though...so I guess I'll find out! ;o)

    I have read loads of time travel and have to say this was right up there with my fav's. A little different with the Native Americans, but really a great read. Loved the history and knowledge the author put in the story. Very realistic and romantic with sadness of how our culture treated them. Cannot wait to read the next book by this author. Seriously if you enjoy a really good time travel romance, you won't be dissapointed!

    Hello

    A 300 page free book about time travel. Why would you risk pissing off an Indian who is holding you captive by throwing a temper tantram and slapping him in front of other warriors? Where is her common sense or a basic survival instinct? The continual temper tantrums were a little much.
