This time travel romance grabs you by the throat from the first line and pulls you into the dangerous and exciting world of Sarah Baxter, an archaeologist who has committed the unforgivable sin of the Time Traveller: she has made a blunder and changed the future. Her father owns a company – TimeArch - which has revolutionized archaeological discovery. Instead of determining information from artifacts found in modern times, he has developed a device which takes the archaeologists back to when the...more

An archeologist is sent back to the 1800's to find a fragment of the Time Arch. The story starts immediately in a tense scene with a lot of stake and a sense of urgency. The antagonist is hard and unsympathetic which made me feel sorry for Sarah. There were some great sensory details that pulled me into the scenes. The pace was good throughout and the style engaging. The time shifts were dealt with very well and the period was obviously well researched. The story came to life with a deft handlin...more

The time travel romance genre has a new star! A STOLEN SEASON is a wonderful novel. Beautifully written and well plotted, Ms. Gill has created a breathtaking adventure. I "devoured" this novel, loving every minute of Sarah and Eric's story. Ms. Gill followed one of the unwritten rules of time travel fiction; don't give detailed explanations of the actual time travel machine or mechanism. She also had a great hook at the end, that speaks to the "what ifs" of good time travel stories. I don't want...more

A delightful story! I thoroughly enjoyed A Stolen Season. The juxtaposition of Sarah's modern sensibilities against nineteenth century social expectations was really fun. Especially cute were the modernisms Sarah occasionally drops (such as "talk your ear off"), much to the amusement or confusion of her Regency-era friends. Sarah and Eric's chemistry sizzles, and their love scenes are deliciously hot. I only wish the novel was a little longer, as the last 1/4 felt a bit rushed. Ms. Gill is a won...more

As a lover of historical romance, 'A Stolen Season' offered me a tale with a twist. The story was delightfully unpredictable and the chemistry between the hero and heroine fairly sizzled on the page.

I enjoyed the fast pace of the writing and found myself finishing the entire book in just two evenings! It had me wishing there was more...in fact, a sequel would not go astray.

If you're looking for a fabulous romance spiced up with a little intrigue and time travel, then 'A Stolen Season' is for you...more

Sarah Baxter will have you spellbound from the first page! An absolutely fantastic read that has passion, intrigue and deceit and keeps you reading into the wee hours! Well written and unpredictable until the end. Tamara Gill has certainly raised the bar with time travel romance.

Too many stories I've read recently let the hero and heroine fall in lust rather than in love. This story was different. I believed they fell in love (with a healthy dose of lust) and it was refreshing to see a hero who was not afraid to admit to his feelings and act accordingly.

The love story was nice and heartwarming. The writing was fluent and didn't distract me in any way from the story told.

The reason I stick to four stars instead of five is that near the end of the book the author lost me...more

I really enjoyed reading this book! The characters were believable in their world and were likable. There were a couple phrases that felt like they were a bit overused but nothing that detracted from the story. This was an uncorrected copy so that may even change, or perhaps it was just me. As a time travel geek, I wanted to know something about the how or the why of the time traveling "company" the characters worked for. Sadly I never found out. But this would probably have made for a really lo...more

I won this book in a giveaway on Goodreads, liking the summary of a love story within a time travel story. However, the time travel is not really significant, neither is the reasons behind Sarah being in the past. I was a little dissapointed by this, having anticipated a more spacey, explanatory book, but I liked it anyway. A quick read that is hard to put down, and with no need to do so; the language and pace of the book sucks you in and holds you there till the very end. (Horrible cover, thoug...more

This book made me cry. No matter how much I tried, I really can't stop crying. It's such a touching book. But also fun to read. Don't get me wrong it's not all drama. Mostly it was love. You'll understand me when after you finish reading.

Regency Time Travel! A fun story about a heroine who commits a time travelers worst taboo, and in making it right, makes more trouble for herself and history. A sweet and spicy romance!

Not really SF, but time-travel. Nice, even if the heroine seems and acts more like a woman of nineteenth then 21st century. Maybe it is a time-travel machine glitch... :D

I really liked this book and found myself wishing it was a series so I could read MORE.

I was so glad when this book was over. It's my fault: I was expecting a delicious steampunk romance, with sparring leads. (I had visions of To Say Nothing of the Dog dancing in my head. Now that was a well-written time travel novel!)
Nope, it was love at first sight, and the first and only spat was over in a matter of pages.
Yawn.
