3.5 OK Fantasy story

Enjoyable fantasy. Likable characters that grip readers as the story rolls along at a good pace. Unfortunately, there were a few major holes in the plot. For chapters, Gaston begs or tries to force his wife to reveal the villain's plot to the King. Yet when she finally can, he seems to suddenly reject this plan. The Hero came over a bit of a coward not wanting to defend himself and the heroine against the villain. Also wish more research was done, not just on the capacities of Middle Age armory and food stuffs. With all the amazing cosmological happenings in just our galaxy alone, a lunar eclipse was the best 'magical' event for time travel. Seriously?!
However since it is a fantasy story... I can say that it was an enjoyable listen just the same.

Julia Motyka did a good job with the delivery of the story

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

An enjoyable mystical magical Medieval story

Imagine looking through your window at the moon in a restored Medieval Castle in 1993 dressed only in your lace teddie then, at the stroke of midnight announcing another year, you're suddenly falling through time and space to the year 1300 and landing in a handsome, naked, sexy but drunk Knight's bed who's more than happy to see you...... that is until he actually sees you.

Celine battles as mistaken identity causes Gaston to dislike and mistrust her because he believes her to be his betrothed forced upon him by the King and worse still she's his enemy's niece and so he fears for his life. The trouble is he's very attracted to her but must not consummate the marriage but there's a strong attraction and sexual chemistry between them and the more he pushes obstacles in her way, the more he begrudgingly admires her even as she's turning his world, and Castle, upside down and behind his hard shell lies a sweet, loveable, thoughtful, caring man.

A well orchestrated emotional tale with a great plot, twists and turns, treachery, interesting characters, an evil villain, jousting, sacrifice, humor, passion, sex but everything hangs on the moving, climatic, race against time ending. There may be parts where I'm sure you'll think "oh come on" but bear in mind this is a magical fantasy so just go with the flow and enjoy this romantic love story.

Worth a credit? Yes and I'm looking forward to her next 2 books in this series.
