Publisher's Summary

Aura is her mother's love child, a living memory of the biggest mistake she ever made, and she never lets Aura forget it. Shunned by her mother, dismissed by her stepsisters, Aura drifts through life. She has little to sustain her miserable existence but her dreams. Until fate takes a hand and tosses her far into the past, a past she must learn to survive in. Alone with nothing but a couple of pets Aura learns what it is like to be on her own. She learns how to make a life for herself in a time where she does not belong. Or maybe she does.
Thorn is the right hand man of the Duke Vernon. He is a warlord, a great warrior and leader. He also has a belief that somewhere in the world his soul mate waits for him. Each day he prays for the guidance that will bring her to his attention, but when it does, will he know her? Will he accept that she is the one who is meant for him?
Aura finds a knight beaten and left for dead and she nurses him back to health. It is the first time Thorn meets her, but not the last. A year later they meet again, by then she is a favorite of the Duke Vernon because of her knowledge. Vernon wants to keep her close because of what she knows. Thorn wants to keep her closer but for other reasons. Here is the woman he has searched for, his soul mate. Can he hold on to her, or does fate have other plans?

not what i expected

I like the way the author's heroine is a strong woman that is not about to have someone decide things for her. She comes from a family that ignored and abused her and yet she remained strong and shared her talents with others. The Hero took awhile for me to like. Here is a woman fighting to save his life and he also tries to abuse her and she walks away---that took a lot with her background. Later when he is able to realize that she is a woman of worth he is able to adjust to the situation and really love her not just see her as a sex object. I liked the romance, the time travel and didn't mind the narative style of the book

Talk about long distance romance

Time travel and romance. How suited are they? They seem to go together like chocolates and flowers! There are so many of them out there. My wife got me watching Outlander with her, and I can see shades of that tale here.

As much as I don't really care for namby pamby lovie dovie stuff (I'm more of a cerebral/action fan of time travel) I have to admit that I liked this book. Like I said, Outlander has really primed me for this sort of stuff, but then I look at Somewhere in Time and Time After Time that only worked because of the love story. You can feel the emotions between the characters.

One thing that really threw me off was the use of a Male narrator. Nothing against Woodson; he does a great job, however I am very used to a female lead having a female narrator. I guess that's a little sexist, and I apologize, as Woodson should not be shamed by this statement. He totally nails the story, and brings the characters to life aptly. In fact, he kind of helped me get over this hangup. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

This is a good story, with a full of feels romance. I enjoyed it and there was not one magic spell or an elf to be seen. I think I'm getting soft in my old age.

Listening to t this audio book, right from the beginning she drew me into her story as she weaved the tail of an unwanted child. You wanted nothing more than to reach inside the story and give her a great big hug.
