A wish upon a star transports the luckless-in-love Jessica Blakely back in time to the thirteenth century, but her desire for a fair and gallant knight yields the fearsome Richard de Galtres. Though wary of Jessica’s mysterious ways, Richard protectively harbors her in his castle by the sea. Though her stubborn will nearly drives him mad, the very sight of her puts a smile on a face that has known too few. And when Jessica’s tender desire pierces the armor around his heart, Richard fears he may never be able to recover – or resist… Jessica eagerly accepts a month long trip to England (on a university faculty sabbatical) with her blind date, Mr. Stafford III, in hopes of having a "vacation from her life" and "a chance to get some perspective on the Big Picture" (pg 10) Except shortly into her trip, she makes a wish for "a man who would love her as much as he loved himself" (pg 19) and instead of finding herself among manicured bushes in an English garden, she emerges from a fog in the year 1260 at Burwyck-on-the-Sea. Adjusting to a Medieval lifestyle is harder then she expected; especially when she has to deal with Richard de Galtres's stubbornness, preconceptions of women duties (i.e. sewing & cooking...something Jessica knows nothing of), and the lack of music. If this is to become Jessica's new world/life, how will she survive (especially with out chocolate)? I'm a sucker for time-travel tales, especially when they involve a little historical romance as well. So, after reading Lynn Kurland's One Enchanted Evening, I opted for more and, I have to say, I highly enjoyed The More I See You quite a bit. It wasn't as kooky and ridiculous as some time-travel stories can easily become and I enjoyed that Jessica didn't really make it a secret of her time slip. Richards harshness was easy to find displeasing, but you could also easily see him falling for Jessica throughout the book - which was adorable. Happily, the ending wasn't abrupt . . . since you could feel the story winding up quickly, you'll be glad to read more chapters after the fact to tie everything together nicely. Something I love! The reader gets a lot of one on one time with Jessica & Richard for the first half of the book, with a few of Richard's comical guards thrown in here or there. Yet, my favorite interactions were when Jessica was forced to mingle with other Medieval women in the second part of the story and finds a kindred spirit. Sadly, I felt the good-byes at the end were bit rushed though and would have been much harder to accept personally, but the characters do do a great emotional roller-coaster and I even found some other characters (ex. Kendrick & Abby) that I want to continue reading up on in the future. Can't wait! Likes: At least there was more "parallel action" in this book compared to the last one I read, One Enchanted Evening. Nothing too graphic, but enough to satisfy my romantic side. Dislikes: They made such a big deal of Richard's past treatment as a child in the first half, but it kind of fizzled away in the second half. I would have liked the fact to have been pursued a little more to get a deeper understanding of his character.

it catches you by surprise by each turn of the page. the use of descriptive imagery makes you seem like u are in this historical setting and everything is happening right before ur eyes. the characters are portrayed as realistic individuals and have their own personality. this book will capture your heart.

I bought this book by mistake and it's a 'mistake' i've gladly made several times thereafter. Kurland is a genius at time travel romances. I've lost count of the number of times i've read The More I See You. Each time, I fall in love with the characters. And each time i've read the book is as good, if not even better, than the first reading. If you're a true historical romance reader like I am (and I am obsessed with historical romances), this book belongs in your collection. This is a must possess book. Buy it, read it, you won't regret it.

This was a pretty good book, and it was emotionally touching and funny, but I had one issue with it. There were no love scenes, and though I'm not quite what you would call a fan of erotica, I do like love scenes in the romance books I read. Otherwise, this was a good book- although I think that Karen Marie Moning is THE MASTER of time-travel romance :)

While characters travelling through time hasn't been original for quite some time, I really did enjoy reading this one. It was very happily ever after and maybe everything worked out a bit too conveniently, but it was a good read and I would reccomend it for an afternoon by the pool.

I have become a fan of Ms. Kurland over the past year and look forward to finding her books when I go to my monthly search for romantic historical books. This book follows a character I've come to enjoy in other of her books, the eldest Artane son and his lovely wife. It is a must for any fan of Lynn Kurland .

This is a truely great story and it is very easy to lose yourself in. While some parts seem to be a little... out of place, loyal Kurland fans will not be disapointed. But if you need those explicit love scenes, try another book.

I really enjoyed this book. It was very well written and easy to absorb yourself into. My only caution is that the romance connoisseurs out there may not enjoy the lack of love scenes. Theres a ton of build up with great chemistry b/n the main characters, but the actual love-making is more suggested rather than described intimately and it feels slightly anticlimatic.

I liked this story from the very beginning! The characters made you want to care about them almost immediately. I liked the fact that Richard wasn't afraid to show his emotions instead keeping them inside or waiting until the end of the story. The time travel aspect is intriguing in and of itself. I can't wait to read more of Ms. Kurland's books.

The More I See You, is the first Lynn Kurkland book I have read. Once I started, I could not put the book down. I loved the story line, the whole time travel scenarion and the characters as well. I loved the fact that Jessica was strong and independant and that her Knight was unpredictable. I also fell in love with Richard's friend Kendrick and cannot wait to read his story. I truly recomend this book to everyone and hope Ms. Kurkland keeps writing for years to come.

Don't get me wrong. I really love this book. It's the best romance novel I've ever read and ever finished!! (I'm not really into this type of book). The story line is simple but attractive. A modern american girl who wished upon the star to be loved by a knight in a shining armor and then.. woops! she time-travelled to medieval England and fell in love with a moody, male chavanist Richard of Burwyck-on-the-sea who's truly a gentleman with a heart-warming sensation to the only woman he loved.. This book is really entertaining and can put a smile on your face while reading it. Their relationship grew over time and, unlike the other remance novel, two main characters did not fall in love in the other external appearance but the true beauty within. One thing that makes this book a little less (really tiny little bit...)than perfect 10.0 is the wrap up at the end. Well, it's not bad but just.. a little..(very very little) bit less interesting... But by over all, highly recommended!! and you will love it just as I do..

I have loved every single story Mrs.Kurland has written, and this one is no different. She put the love and romance back in romance novels, and I've found myself falling in love with every character she 's written (I wish the men in her stories were real). I just can't say enough good things about her writing.I've read all of her stuff at least twice and I can't wait for something new to come out.:)
