Publisher's Summary

Violin prodigy Etta Spencer had big plans for her future, but a tragedy has put her once-bright career at risk. Closely tied to her musical skill, however, is a mysterious power she doesn't even know she has. When her two talents collide during a stressful performance, Etta is drawn back hundreds of years through time.
Etta wakes, confused and terrified, in 1776, in the midst a fierce sea battle. Nicholas Carter, the handsome young prize master of a privateering ship, has been hired to retrieve Etta and deliver her unharmed to the Ironwoods, a powerful family in the Colonies - the very same one that orchestrated her jump back, and one Nicholas himself has ties to. But discovering she can time travel is nothing compared to the shock of discovering the true reason the Ironwoods have ensnared her in their web.
Another traveler has stolen an object of untold value from them, and, if Etta can find it, they will return her to her own time. Out of options, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the mysterious traveler. But as they draw closer to each other and the end of their search, the true nature of the object, and the dangerous game the Ironwoods are playing, comes to light - threatening to separate her not only from Nicholas, but her path home...forever.

Mixed feelings

This story has an excellent premise, and I enjoyed the world building a lot. The romance was overdone, however, and really isn't believable. I felt like it was just shoehorned in there, which made the passages dealing with it rather silly.

The narrator needs to check for the correct pronunciation of a number of words. A few words were even mispronounced in a variety of ways!

Don't think I'll move on to book two.

love the writer, but performance is a zoonzer

i am a truck driver and its important for me to stay awake through the night.
i have loved every book this writer has written, but the narrator puts me to sleep with the monotones and barely any voice changing. I couldn't even finish the book. even through the trilling parts of the story. I wanted to throw my phone out the window. which sucks because I'm sure this is a good book. I just can't get through it.
