Publisher's Summary

The year is 1499. As Alexandra Dunn’s farmhouse is set ablaze, her grandfather places precious stones in her palm, telling her she has until the next full moon to return with a hero ... a brave, chivalrous knight to help save her family. Familiar objects become a blur as she is swallowed in darkness. Suddenly Alexandra is standing in the middle of Central Park, but she has no time to ponder on the wondrous powers of the stones or the amazing sights before her ... she must find a hero before all is lost.
Joe McFarland would be the first to admit that he’s far from hero material … definitely not the man she’s looking for. A firm believer in quietude and non-violence, he avoids conflict at all costs. At 34, he is one of the younger Professors at NYU where he lectures and teaches History: The High Middle Ages.
Joe’s organized, well-structured life begins to unravel the moment he meets Alexandra Dunn. He figures she majored in medieval history before going off the deep end … until days later when he is miraculously transported through time, to 1499 England. Dressed in Dockers and a button-down shirt, Joe thought he was ready for anything ... anything but this!
An armored man with a very authentic looking broadsword is about to strike him down. With only nail clippers and a Bic to defend himself, Joe has no time to think about such an implausible phenomenon as traveling through time … not if he wants to live to see another day.

Did not like the narration

If the narration would have been a dual narration it would have made for a good listen. The story was good. I always enjoy time traveling stories. But Sarah Wilds just did not have the voice to read this book. Her male voice was very much female trying to sound male in a little girl voice. I do not understand why they do not publish these books to entertain. Most the time I would enjoy listening to books instead of watching a movie.

I really wanted to like it but........

A time travel romance but something was lost during the travelling I'm afraid. I just can't put my finger on what was really wrong with this story, I think it skimmed over a lot of details and, as a result, it was just a light totally 'silly' type story. It was like a recipe with a missing ingredient and you know that something is missing but you can't guess what it is.

I didn't like the narrator either she was so s l o w so double speed it if you're going to purchase it.

I've already downloaded Return of the Rose otherwise I wouldn't have bothered until it was on sale.

Worth my credit? No, I could quite happily of lived my life without ever hearing this tale. But, if it's on sale, and you're wanting a light listen, then maybe yes.
