I enjoyed this one so much more then the first two.
Liked both main characters and much preferred the story.
The romance felt more real than in the first 2 books, and I much preferred that there were not other suitors, as in book 1 and 2, that the heroine uses to make the hero jealous.
The issues that I have though, remains as with book 1 and 2. Sometimes the language used (and not by a character gone back in time) is too modern. Although this one had a more realistic historical feel to it.
And again, as with book 1, sometimes things are mentioned that seem like they will have an impact on the story, yet nothing comes of it. For example, mentioning that there is now a warrant out on Lisa in her time, nothing ever happens with that – it is one random scene between Lisa’s Mom and her friend, which I can see why that was there, but why make it more complicated mentioning warrants, when it is never going to come to anything.
And there was a bit with Circenn’s friends Galan and particularly Duncan, when it seemed like they were being set up for a romance to happen in this book, or a future book but having looked, there seems to be nothing for them. So again, a scene with Duncan and and “intriguing” woman, that leads nowhere.
But overall, a much more enjoyable story than book 1 and 2, with characters I like much more. And an intriguing look into Adam Black’s character and how he is more than he appears to be.
