Thrust back in time against her will, the heroine finds herself in an abandoned tower in a strange time. Not all is lost. She's an historian and she has a bad of tradable goods so not only does she have something to boarder with, she's capable of speaking the language of the villagers around her. There she encounters the young handsome knight who takes an instant liking to her. He takes her back to his keep and hires her as the lady of house until he can fetch his betrothed. They develop a deep and lastly friendship, she heroine feeling a maternal loyalty to the carefree man. Her life is content, as much as possible so far from home. Then she meets the hero. He's a wandering Knight, having no property as his own, he's charged by the king to catch and kill the rebels in the forest. Though he is strikingly handsome and big and strong, he's arrogant and all too tempting. She makes a habit to stay as far away from him as she can but he doesn't make it easy. Despite the fact that he seems to dislike her as much as she him, he tends to find a reason to be around her or to bug her. He's mysterious and confusing and she finds herself falling in love with him. I can't stress enough just how much I loved this heroine. My god she was something amazing. This was probably the most realistic time travel romance I've read since Outlander. She is sent back in time by her boss and instead of putting u a hissy fit like most females do in this genre, she intergrades well into her surroundings. She accepts her lot in life and follows their customs as much as she can from her education as well as what she learns along the way. She's stoic and graceful when in the presence of those around her, never letting on that she's any different from them. She uses no modern phrasing, she's not a feminist and she's a smart, witty and very capable woman whom they all admire. The hero comes around periodically in the beginning but even though they claim to dislike each other, the sexual tension is there. The signs are clear that he's beginning to develop feelings for her but his pension for violence-however justified-is a major issue for her. In fact, the only time she ever freaks out over the world she know lives in is when there's a battle or when the hero must kill one of her attackers. I loved the twist at the end when you find out who the hero was. I thought it cleaver and well played as I never once clued in to the mystery. Overall, this was a stellar novel with characters that I absolutely adored. One the best books of the genre, defiantly. ( )
