Beautifully mastered combination of romance and time-travel

Almost all of Mrs. Lindsey books are great, and I won't begin to write a review about each one of them. What made me feel I HAD to say something about this one is the fact that it is very, very different from the others.Aside from romance books I'm partial to SF books (you may think this a strange combination, I assure you it is not :) ) and it certainly was great to see a love-story combined with a time-travel adventure sooo beautifully. What surprised me most, as I had not expected it, is that Mrs. Lindsay payed very much attention to the time-travel paradoxes and everything fell into place nicely, solved in good old SF style. I had not expected this from a romance-writer, there are certainly many SF writers out there who do not tie up all loose ends and who make mistakes when trying to deal with alternate history lines and the like.OK, enough about this. Besides, it's not the only good thing about the book. The story is also very funny (the situation of a man from the past thrown into present is always hilarious). I have to confess also that I never knew so many details about the Norman conquest before :).The ending... well, it lets you understand whatever you want. Mrs. Lindsey wraps it up nicely both for those of us who believe in fantastic adventures and for those who do not. Well, I know for sure which category I fall in...

A potentially cheesy topic, handled beautifully.

I admit that I am a HUGE fan of Johanna Lindsey, as well as a fan of Norse history. But I was nervous when starting this.I have seen far too many books and movies about modern people traveling to past times, and it is rarely handled well. The modern people are either complete morons (a la Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure), or they seem to fit in perfectly. This did neither. While the main character had studied enough about the time period to understand it well, she still reacted as any modern woman would.I also liked the ending, as it allowed you to believe whatever you want about the actions in the book.

One of the Best!

Wow, this is one of the best books I have read by Johanna Lindsey. She has many great books, but this is by far, one of my favorites. I love how Rosaleen, the kind of nerdy, Professer happens to find herself involved with a hunk of Medievil past named Thorn. I am not a fan of time travel (except with A Knight in Shining Armor) but this novel does it excellently. Going back and forth through time, with Rosaleen and Thorn falling for each other is precious. The way the outcome of the future is affected by the role they play in the past is hilarious. The ending is to die for, I recommend this book to all the romantics out there!

Wonderful!

I am a history major and my field of study is medeival history, just like Roseleen's. This was a wonderful book and appealed to me because I have often wondered what it would be like to go back in time to meet William the Conqueror. The book has everything, a handsome hero, a beautiful heroine, and a wonderful story. I definetly recommend this one if you are a fan of Johanna Lindsey!

Wonderfully written, across-time romance!

This was my first Johanna Lindsey novel and I'm hooked. As both a history buff/major and amateur writer, I feel the book was filled with an intricate plot that played out wonderfully, beautiful characters you get to love, creative use of history, and an ending for all the romantic dreamers in the world that's to die for. I admit the thought of time travel and the paradox that occurs in the novel are interesting, but the dreamer and historian in me fell in love with the cursed Viking I wanted for myself and the professor I wished I was. I recommend this book for anyone who loves action, myth, history, and of course good old fashion romance.
