At twenty-one, after two Seasons with no takers, Theodosia Barrington should have been grateful to snare Nigel Cosgrove. The earl-to-be was a blue-eyed Adonis, a true catch. And yet, upon her arrival at Cashel Cosgrove, Thea found herself more intrigued by the Irish castle's legend, the tragic warrior Ros Drumcondra, than by her intended. "The Black Falcon" Drumcondra was

I'm sorry to say, this was the worst time-travel book I have ever read. Ugh! The characters kept going back and forth in time and if that wasn't annoying enough the book was not written very well with poor character development and horribly edited (if at all).

Big thumbs down from This Reader.
Bar none the worst romance/time travel novels I have ever read.

To be fair I don't even expect much from these types of books because they are so outlandish you can't expect much.

The number of times the characters jump back forth in time is absolutely asinine. It's confusing, irritating and nonsensical. The writing was so poor I literally had to trudge through it.

In the beginning an old gypsy woman comes into the story and Thea (referred to simply as the heroine from here on out) d
I enjoyed "The Bride of Time" by Dawn Thompson so I downloaded a few of her other books. This one was quite rough around the edges and required quite a bit of trust from the reader. You have to simply accept that the hero & heroine are quite in love, even though you don't get any build up or seduction in their relationship - just accept that it is there and intense. You don't get any background or explanation for the relationship between the hero and the falcon - just accept that the bird is ...more

I'll admit it, I purchased this book because, while looking for another book by Thompson, I fell in love with the cover. It's so pretty and mysterious.

It took about four chapters before I found the rhythm of this novel, once I did, I had a difficult time putting it down.

I was really surprised when this book became a time travel. Had I known that before hand I would have hesitated before making the purchase simply because so many time travels just don't work. I'm pleased to report that this wasn'

I only bought this book as it was part of Kindle "Deal of the day" on Amazon (UK). I was attracted to the cover (its dark, mysterious look...) and I thought the summary was intriguing. Big mistake, which thankfully only did cost me £0.99. The font on Kindle was horrendous and the typo was nearly as bad. What to say about the story and its characters? The story seemed to be dragging on and on and I found the characters very difficult to like, let alone sympathize with their struggles. They were s ...more
**Warning - may contain spoilers**
I began to enjoy the book once I just "accepted" that the two heroes were deeply in love. I hated not having any build up to the relationship. I thought that the Ros Drumcondra's character was very POORLY developed. I never felt like the reader ever got the chance to get to really know this man. My biggest complaint is that I still have no idea exactly when or WHY the two characters fell in love. For heaven's sake...I didn't even like the male lead, yet the heri

Paranormal Romance
A woman- betrothed to a cold mean man finds herself thrust back in time and into the arms of his ancestors greatest enemy. The male lives for vengeance and holds the woman hostage in order to win back his stolen castle. Stockholm syndrome sets in quickly as the woman finds herself attracted to her kidnapper. It felt a little odd seeing as how the male was not the plucky romantic hero in the beginning-in fact it was almost to the end before you believed he loved her-not just lusted for her. The h ...more

One of the Best Time-Travels I have ever read. Thompson upped the bar with each book she wrote. I cannot believe how each book is better than the last, when she started so strong. This time its a time travel. Absorbing, compelling, she bridges the strength of old style romances with a freshness that sets her apart.

A beautiful writer, a beautiful storyteller.
Thea discovers her Prince Charming isn't very charming at all. In fact, he's quite dangerous. All's well that ends well though, because a Prince of a different kind is ready to rescue Thea.
This was a trashy romance book...I was looking for a period love story. Guess that's what you get for following the library suggestion list!

I did not like the ending. Other then that it was a good read.
