Book Description

March 1 1997 Pocket Books Romance
New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard captivates readers in the deeply romantic tale of a contemporary woman who unravels an extraordinary mystery from the past . . . by living it.

A scholar specializing in ancient manuscripts, Grace St. John never imagined that a cache of old documents she discovered was the missing link to a lost Celtic treasure. But as soon as she deciphers the legend of the Knights of the Templar -- long fabled to hold the key to unlimited power -- Grace becomes the target of a ruthless killer bent on abusing the coveted force. Determined to stop him, Grace needs the help of a warrior bound by duty to uphold the Templar's secret for all eternity. But to find him -- and to save herself -- she must go back in time . . . to fourteenth-century Scotland . . . and to Black Niall, a fierce man of dark fury and raw, unbridled desire. . . .

Product Description

From Amazon

All of Linda Howard's novels are wonderful but this exceptional time-travel is her first foray into paranormal romance--and it's not to be missed. Grace St. John, a scholar, unwittingly discovers the Knights of Templar's secret treasure. Suddenly, her life is upturned when she spies her boss murdering her husband and brother. With no reason to live, except to extract vengeance, Grace becomes a fugitive of the law as she attempts to find an explanation for this horrible act. Grace simultaneously translates 14th century medieval documents written by Black Niall. This embittered knight reaches into Grace's subconscious and the two begin to share dreams 700 years apart.

Review

"Linda Howard offers a romantic time-travel thriller with a fascinating premise . . . gripping passages and steamy sex." -- Publishers Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars A HUGELY ENTERTAINING BOOK... Aug. 24 2010
By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book I have ever read by this author, and it will not be the last. I really enjoyed this book, as it worked successfully on many levels. Moreover, it was surprisingly well-written. It is a book that crosses many genres: mystery, suspense, historical fiction, and time travel. These are all genres that I enjoy reading, so it immediately caught my attention. It even has a dollop of romance for those who enjoy that genre, as well.

When the shy and plump Grace St. John, a translator of ancient languages, is confronted with an earth shattering scenario that defies her imagination and rocks her world, life for her will never again be the same. Fleeing those who wish to do her harm and seeking to unravel the mystery contained in some ancient documents in her possession having to do with the Knights Templar, Grace will undergo some profound life changes. As Grace continues her translation of the documents while on the run, a portrait of an esteemed fourteenth century warrior of the Knights Templar, Niall of Scotland, emerges, and past and present begin to merge. Grace soon realizes that only through the past, can her present ever be righted.

This is a book that is chock full of adventure, as well as many intriguing twists and turns. Replete with historical detail, as well as a great plot, this is a book that will certainly capture the reader's imagination. It certainly captured mine, and I was riveted to its pages until the very end. This is a wonderfully entertaining book by a masterful storyteller.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too long June 23 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I liked this book because it had both romance, adventure, suspense... a kind of female Indiana Jones. The problem, in my humble opinion, resides in the fact the LH spent too long on the introduction and Graces' escape. Only about 1/4 of the book is dedicated to romance with Niall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! April 27 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If I could rate this book higher than 5 stars, I definately would. This was one of Howard's greater books! I could not put it down. From the first page to the last, I would hang on her every word. I wish there had been more for me to read about Grace and Black Niall. Their chemistry was simply amazing. I would like to see another book by Howard along these lines, perhaps incorporating this story. It is a keeper for me, I plan to read it again, soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Okay... March 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is one of Linda Howard's boks that I like but not one of the best. I would rate this book 4 and 3/4 a star but since they don't have that option I chose five.
In this Book the heroine, Grace St. Jone, she is well rounded and lives in a comfertable life. But that changes in a blink of an eye.
First her husband and brouther are killed in front of her. Her boss sends goons after her to kill her and steel her work...that her boss gave her!
Running for her life, and translating her work she runs into some unexpected friends.
Hiding from your evil boss, and his friends, while tring to translate, would be hard. But going through a strang flash back to vist a sexy man called the Black Niell. Who also seenms to be writting to you from the past.
I enjoyed this book. With all of Linda Howard's classic writting and awsome supportive characters. The ending was okay, the reason behind the last 1/4 missing of a star. But still worth recommending.
Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Son of the Morning Kept Me up all night March 1 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a wonderful time travel romance. The heroine, Grace, is fiesty and develops streets smarts with the help of some interesting characters. The historical aspects of the story were fascinating. The characters do not meet throughout about 3/4s of the book. Grace finally meets Niall, the hero, in medieval Scotland and details of that time seem quite accurate to me. The books ends a little too quickly. Maybe there will be another book. Would love to read more about Grace, Niall, Kris and the others. This is my first review, but because this book was soooo good I wanted to let others know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Words - THE BEST Feb. 25 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the top 5 books that I've read in the past 10 years - and I read a lot! I started this book at 8:00 in the evening and finished it in time to start getting ready for work the next morning. It takes quite a book to keep me awake all night.
Understand, I read this book about 3 years ago and it is still with me at time even now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Her best ever Jan. 25 2004
By donna
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the best book Howard has written so far. I have read all of her books and none compare to this one. Some have been downright disappointing. This is a definite must read. I've read it several times already.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very well written. Jan. 20 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was very good. Unlike other time travel/romance novels, this one took its time getting to the time travel/hero meets heroine part. My only criticism is that, once that occurred, the book was wrapped up far too quickly. The book should have been at least another 50 pages. I wanted to read more about how Grace adjusted to and lived in the 14th century, and how her emotional relationship with Niall developed once they had met. Still, overall an excellent read.
