    " Sorry, I just didn't care for this one. I didn't think the hero was very likeable and I didn't really care for the back and forth between time periods. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danya | 2/15/2014

    " The book was mostly great, though I didn't like the ending that much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Regina | 2/12/2014

    " This book was one of my first forays into the world of romance novels. It appealed to me due to the fantasy/time travel element, and I find that those are the only ones in this genre that I truly enjoy. I was in high school when I read this, so I think my recollections of it are tainted with sentimentality. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shari | 2/11/2014

    " Love, love, love this book! I love it so much I have read it 3 times. Which is very unusual for me to even reread a book once! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharra Kelly | 2/8/2014

    " I thought it was a good book. There are some smutty parts, but it was done pretty tastefully. I really liked the story line and enjoyed her writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 D'Anna | 1/20/2014

    " Just a fun "beach book.". Enjoyable with enough content to think about without overtaxing oneself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carli | 1/11/2014

    " First and only romance novel I've ever read really. I was 16 when I read it the first time. Made me want my own knight in shining armor, haven't found him yet..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marianne | 1/7/2014

    " As cheesy as the name makes it sound, this is one of the very few books I can read over and over. It's a beautiful and very creative story that keeps you guessing. The ending is bittersweet and makes me cry every time! Definitely worth reading...it's become a favorite of mine for sure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 12/10/2013

    " This was the first time-travel romance I ever read and I thought it was great. It has been a long time since I read it, so I am not quite certain how it would compare to todays standards. To me it is definitely a keeper. "

    " I read this book while I was in high school (which is to say, a long, long time ago!), but I still think this is one of the most memorable romance novels I've read. Sweet, funny, smart...with a heroine that reminds women to demand respect and stop being doormats. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna Stapleton | 3/14/2013

    " This is one of my absolute favorites! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darny | 12/24/2012

    " Of the Jude Deveraux books, this is my favorite. I am a starry eyed romantic and if you've mixed time travel - I am busting at the seams to read it. The characters were so vivid that you could actually reach out and almost touched them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arlene | 12/22/2012

    " I loved the time-travel aspect of the book and the set of characters that revolved around this storyline. The ending was perfection. Great love story with a splash of suspended reality that's always fun to experience. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffanie | 11/10/2012

    " I read this a long time ago. The history is great, the story is funny but the book is naughty. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teia Blackshear Collier | 10/11/2012

    " This is the book that started me on romance novels. It was the first novel that took me and made me imagine and feel for a character outside of the stories that I made in my head. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marianna | 9/24/2012

    " This is by far one of my favarote books, I read it several years ago and I still remember all the content. Its one of the few books that made me cry. They should make a movie of this book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mabel | 6/7/2012

    " I'm a sap, but this story is awesome. (Except the ending.) I read it before I started my reading project, and it's really poorly written but somehow still entertains me! I've read it twice and have it on my Nook to reread. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 4/8/2012

    " A little sappier than I remember from the first read, but enjoyable! Four out of five for a nice flight of fancy! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lindsey | 4/8/2012

    " The characters were pretty uninspiring and the story was a little boring. Had maybe read a 50 pages when I scanned ahead to see if it got any better and I discovered it was a smut novel:).lad I didn't waste any more time! I'll need to stick to the list of clean romances. "

    " I read it first when it came out back in the late 80's and have re read it so many times with each read just as fantastic.

    Its one of those books that impact you and stays with you forever. Love or hate the ending- it is a romance must read. "
