Publisher's Summary

A passionate, sweeping novel of a love that transcends time.
When twenty-something Wall Street analyst Kate Wilson attracts the notice of the legendary Julian Laurence at a business meeting, no one’s more surprised than she is. Julian’s relentless energy and his extraordinary intellect electrify her, but she’s baffled by his sudden interest. Why would this handsome British billionaire—Manhattan’s most eligible bachelor—pursue a pretty but bookish young banker who hasn’t had a boyfriend since college?
The answer is beyond imagining - at least at first. Kate and Julian’s story may have begun not in the moneyed world of 21st-century Manhattan but in France during World War I, when a mysterious American woman emerged from the shadows of the Western Front to save the life of Captain Julian Laurence Ashford, a celebrated war poet and infantry officer.
Now, in modern-day New York, Kate and Julian must protect themselves from the secrets of the past, and trust in a true love that transcends time and space.

Rare Find!

It's not very often that you come across a book that has everything, mystery, love, good flow, and an amazing narrator but this one has it all! I decided to get this book on a whim, not having read anything by the author before or knowing much about the storyline. I can only stand amazed at the beauty of this book. Time travel romance has been getting popular in the past few years but it is hard to find books that have good enough flow to really convince the reader. Outlander and The Time Travelers Wife both were able to do this beautifully, and now the Overseas story is going to join those prestigious ranks. This story is wholesome without smut although I was a little surprised by the amount of cursing due to the fact that the author was very conservative for the love scenes. None of the love scenes were described in much detail, just the before and after but it does flow nicely. Leaving the details to the imagination of the reader/listener. I, myself usually like a nice steamy love scene and although I was a little disappointed none were included I still enjoyed the reading. The story is classically romantic and the narrator is absolutely AMAZING! January LaVoy has the ability to really bring this story to life. I think it was the first time I've been able to really feel the teasing affection between to characters in such detail. I was very impressed with her, the writing was excellent but January LaVoy really made the story live and breath. I highly recommend this book for anyone that likes classic romance without a lot of detailed love scenes.

- bluebelle "When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!"


Any additional comments?

Oh. My. Gosh! That was the most romantic, absourbing ride I've been on in a very long time! An to think, I got this as a spur of the moment impulse! Now I want a Julian for my very own! I'm an avid reader of romance and this is like nothing like I've ever encountered. I adored the sweet romance and heartbreakingly beautiful love between these two and how far they were willing to go for one another. I found myself completely enraptured with their lives - I'm finishing this dang thing at FIVE friggin A.M! Just a warning for you potential readers out there - there are no steamy sex scenes in this book!!! There is plenty of tension (so much that I was drooling for one - and kinda bummed that there wasn't just a teeny one) and lots of play. Sometimes I think that leaves a "romance" novel almost lacking in some way, unless the author can pull off something that makes the readers overlook that. But Overseas does it beautifully, in such a way that I didn't feel I was missing out and it made it almost more endearing.

I absolutely loved January LaVoy! I've never heard any of her previous works. I loved how she made it easy to keep the characters straight an her english accents were awesome - especially Julian's. I like how she didn't go to far overboard with her male voices like so many are prone to do and her voice is very pleasing to listen to.

I'm sooo glad I caved and got this book! One of the best impulses/credits I ever spent! I can't wait to see was Ms. Williams comes up with next!
