Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In the newest from veteran romance novelist Kurland (Star of the Morning), Manhattan concert violinist Jennifer McKinnon fears that she will never find a decent man—a tough enough prospect even without the "otherworldly things" in her family tree. Namely, her mother's side of the family has a history of marrying people from outside their own time period, and her ghostly relatives have conspired to get Jennifer married off to the perfect knight: Nicholas de Piaget, of the 13th century. After Jennifer is hurled back into his world by means of a time gate, she falls instantly in love with the handsome knight. Though the feeling is mutual, Nicholas is tormented by her desperation to find a way back to the future. Though the setup is promising, Kurland fails to deliver any meaningful conflict. The leads never seem to be in any real danger of losing each other, as nearly every character works to get them together and keep them that way. Moreover, the exceedingly chaste romance—with just a few passionate kisses between the leads—will leave many romance fans frustrated. (May)

From Booklist

After a particularly bad date, Jennifer McKinnon returns home to her Manhattan apartment wondering if she will ever find her true love. It turns out that she has been looking in the wrong place, and time. While visiting her sister in England, Jennifer stumbles across a "time gate" and is whisked back 800 years into the past. Just as she is about to be barbecued for being a witch, Jennifer is rescued by Nicholas de Piaget. After enduring months of matchmaking by his termagant of a grandmother, Nicholas has finally found the one woman with whom he can imagine spending the rest of his life. The only problem is that now Nicholas must find a way to convince Jennifer to stay with him in the past rather than return to her life in the future. Kurland infuses her polished writing with a deliciously dry wit, and her latest time-travel love story is sweetly romantic and thoroughly satisfying. John Charles

5.0 out of 5 stars Indulge & Be Delighted !! Aug. 6 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Excellent as always..Lynn Kurland has the gift of "write"..Another wonderful tale, with a touch of magic... The time-travel element is wonderfully done, without too many modernistic touches added to the "olden days"..and the romance betwixt Nicholas de Piaget, (a PERFECT man), and musically inclined Jennifer McKinnon is entertaining and makes one smile whist reading..
Indulge and Be Delighted !!

5.0 out of 5 stars The "perfect" knight has a problem... April 25 2007
By Katie Mc P - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Those who have been waiting for Nicholas' story for years will be happy to hear that it has finally arrived! And it's everything that we've been waiting for. The Publisher's Weekly editor who wrote the editorial review above is missing out on the fact that many of us prefer books with more real romance and less action in bed! And this book has LOTS of romance.

For those readers who are new to Lynn's wonderfully romantic and well-written books, this is the background of the story...

Nicholas de Piaget was known as quite possibly the most perfect knight to ever exist, both in his own time, and in the centuries to follow. Rich, handsome, chivalrous, and romantic, he was supposed to be about as perfect as a woman could want.

Jennifer McKinnon, a 21st century violinist, has heard about Nicholas 13th century reputation from her in-laws, who happen to be the descendants of Nicholas' family. She's seen the remains of his castle... and some unsettling visions of what it had looked like when he lived, as well. Little does she know that she's about end up on his doorstep... and that this "perfect" knight is hiding a secret - one than could take her back to the home she so desperately wants to return to.

Or does she?

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Return to Artane May 1 2007
By Elaine C McTyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lynn Kurland has once again taken us on a magical trip to the past for a delightful romance. Her ability to make these strong, virile, silent, heros fall in love with the sassy ladies from the future is fantastic. This one is no different and I loved every minute of it. I don't know if it is a fault or not but with all the time travelers it seems finding a hole in time is not so hard, and I hardily wish I had one of Jamie's maps. Although the three ghostly ancestors may have something to do with it.

Nicholas de Piaget is the brother of Robin and four other syblings. His grandmother is determined that at 28 he is getting old and needs a wife. She is inviting a multitude of medieval ladies to visit Artane in order for him to make a selection. He however is determined to escape the ladies and so he travels to his castle at Wyckham. Passing the abbey being built by an old enemy, Ledenham, he rescues a beautiful red-haired woman that is in the process of being burned at the stake. He immediately realizes she is from the future like his brother-in-law, Jake.

Jennifer McKinnon is the sister of Thomas, Megan and Victoria from other novels. She is a violinist. Having visited her sister Megan in England at Artane, where Megan lives with her husband the present Lord of Artane, Jen has gone site-seeing and has been led by the three ghosts into the old abbey where she is whisked off to the past. Jen has heard all the stories about Nicholas and his family. Meeting him lets her know he is still the perfect knight.

While both fight their feelings for each other, the beauty, peace and humor that dwell in any Kurland book surround us and them. The grandmother arrives with another batch of beauties and Nick decides the one he wants is Jennifer. But can he make her want him and the past more than the marvels of the future.

I adore these books and this one is exceptional. The story is wonderful and the ending had me laughing and crying. Do not miss this book, if you read one Kurland, read this one and you will be hooked

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! Fall in love with Nicholas... May 3 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was trying to wait and not read WIFL for at least a little while, since LK books come out only once a year. Waiting would have made the next one not seem so very far away. Anyway despite the best of intentions, that resolve lasted a few days, even writing this I haven't quite finished it yet but I couldn't wait to share my excitement.

Like a wonderfully, sinfully rich dessert (chocolate, of course), you'll want to savor every single word in this story. There are some great lines- that'll make you laugh, smile, even tear up a bit (must be contagious, Jennifer does quite a bit). In fact, I dare you to read it and not have a smile on your face for most of the book.

You get to re-visit the lovely, dashing de Piagets- the brave, arrogant, hilarious brothers who can't help but tease and bait each other so that they can brawl and have a go at each other in the lists. Montgomery thinks that Jennifer, like Jake before her, is from the land of Faery. (I would love to see Montgomery go to the future- just imagine his awe- lol) The meddling, matchmaking ghostly trio play a significant part in getting Jennifer with Nicky, as they had with Vicky and Connor, Megan and Gideon. {It was also fun to see Connor again- there's a funny scene in the beginning where Jennifer thinks someone has broken into her apartment and Connor goes to check it out, going into medieval bodyguard mode (Vicky often has to frisk him for weapons...)} And see Wyckham "first-hand" in the Future and the ever-broken/leaking-roof-ed past.

And of course the most chivalrous, handsome knight in shining armor of them all- Nicky?!?! Wonderful. :-D *Sigh* *Swoon* Patrick MacLeod had been my favorite LK hero but now I'm not so sure. Nick is just dreamy; what girl could help but fall in love with him? Like the songs goes, "when I fall in love, it will be completely....[and] forever." He is the epitome of a medieval knight yet sweet, sensitive, and dashingly charming at the same time. He's been a bit of a grump in the past- mooning over women he can't have- but that ends the moment he sees Jennifer. His heart is forever lost and he vows to do anything and everything in his power to keep her in his life. Jennifer falls quickly for Nicky but yearns for her family and music that she has left "behind" in the future. She must choose between having love, in the past, or living without him in the future but with her family. Tough choice but can she really refuse Nicholas de Piaget??

Overall a wonderfully romantic, funny, touching visit to the past (and some old friends from prior books). A FANTASTIC read. I don't have to read the end to know that I'll still be happy- and having trouble wiping the sappy smile off my face for awhile yet... see still here ;-) Curl up and enjoy; you DEFINITELY won't evereverever regret picking up one of Lynn's books. Sweet, satisfying romances don't get any better.

For some good background for those who haven't read any of Lynn's books, read the following for some good Nicky reading-
1) Another Chance to Dream (for Gwen and Rhys' story)
2) If I Had You (Robin and Anne)
3) Dreams of Stardust (Amanda and Jake)
and Much Ado in the Moonlight (Vicky and Connor) for some tidbits on Jennifer

PLUS the novella in the Christmas Cat (or it can also be found in Love Came Just in Time anthology) for Miles' story- where a fetching Future wench lands on his doorstep. Hopefully Montgomery's tale is in the works...

3.0 out of 5 stars Love the Author, liked the book but.... July 15 2007
By LGM - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
the woman cried way too much. She cried because she was overwhelmed, she cried because she was sad, she cried when she was happy, tired, or hurt. She even cried when she was kissed. I counted a stretch of 17 pages between crying. that was about it. And of course, the obligatory line of "I'm not a crier" was stated several times. Umm.. yeah, she was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Nicholas.... May 9 2007
By K. Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I LOVED this book. Like others have said, Lynn Kurland keeps to what really matters most: love. Romance, and true, deep adoration. I can only wish that one day I'll meet a man like those written in her books. (Just like I wish for the day when more books of her's come out. That, too.)
