Synopsis: I’m a time pirate—born in 1810, now a 21st-century woman. I travel through time trying to right wrongs without disrupting the fragile balance between what is and what can never be.
That’s why it’s vital that I go to 1836 and find the man who conned my brother out of his Time Travel Mechanism as quickly as possible. If the technology falls into the wrong hands, it could change the world as we know it. The notorious Duke of Leister definitely qualifies as the wrong hands. An amateur scientist of the slightly mad variety, he’s bound to figure out how to use the TTM sooner rather than later.
I knew this wouldn’t be easy. But I wasn’t counting on him being as sexy as hell. Or winding up chained to his bed…
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Edit: Stormy Gale is a woman who was an orphan, with her brother, who was adopted by a time-traveler. They both inherited the tools to time-travel when their father passed away. One mistake landed them to the start of journey, losing a piece to prevent them from traveling. In 1836, how difficult would it be to obtain the missing piece from someone named Looney?
This book was fast paced. While it offered a slow start to get to know the main character, Stormy, you are quickly dropped in the middle of the action. From there, you are brought into a chance meeting that puts you straight into a romantic rendezvous. And before you know it, the story has a happy ever after and “The End.”
Stormy was strong and reserved at first, but she quickly became the emotional, love-filled girl. In a book that was fast paced like this one, I’m not sure if it was for me. It made me want more. It made me want to know a little more about each character, where they came from, why things were the way they were. At the end, I was a little confused at how everything could just be left the way it was. The last third of the book seemed rushed. Like I said, quick.
Original: More tomorrow. Short read. Very quick in a wham-bam-thank you, mam sort of way.
