With beautiful descriptions, sparkling dialogue, action-packed pages, and a strong heroine who grows into her power as the story progresses, QUEEN OF JASTAIN has everything a reader could ask for from a time travel romance. This well-written tale kept me reading well into the night, cheering for Abby and rooting for her happily-ever-after. The novel starts with a bang in present-day Texas, where we meet spoiled little rich girl, Abby Randall, moments before her former best friend delivers a gut-wrenching blow with her engagement to Abby's ex-fiance. In the ensuing maelstrom of emotions, Abby is somehow transported through time to a medieval kingdom, where her cute little car is sorely out of place and her designer mini skirt and high-heeled Dolce Gabanas are even more of a problem. Enter the handsome knight, whom she rescues from pursuers on horseback. Avant has waited for so long to avenge his kingdom, but didn't expect the champion of prophesy whom he was waiting for to be... a woman. Especially not a beautiful woman with whom he is so completely and utterly captivated. The tension between Avant and Abby practically sizzles on the page, especially since Abby's a thoroughly modern woman, and Avant a chivalrous medieval prince. Ms. Rader alternates the point of view between Abby and Avant, so the reader is privy to the sexual tensions mounting on both sides of the equation, and to the frustrating situational misunderstandings that arise and come between them. When I was younger, I had a real thing for King Arthur and medieval-type stories. One of my all-time favorites is A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, by Mark Twain. Not that it's a great Arthurian tale, but I love the time traveler aspects to it, and the juxtaposition of the modern guy thrust back in time to the Middle Ages. The narrator's quirky humor provided a fresh perspective on all things medieval. In QUEEN OF JASTAIN, Abby's dry wit and self-deprecating humor reminded me of Twain's narrator, and had me smiling along with her as she navigated the strange landscapes of Jastain. Bottom line? I loved this book and totally look forward to reading more from this author.
