I was blown away by this wonderfully written story where Emily escapes her fate of banishment dictated by her Aunt in Regency England to a convent for her unacceptable behavior. Liam, the hero who is in modern day Tennessee and is a musician, is the yin to Emily’s yang as they are an entertaining couple to read. The conversation between both of them had me turning pages because the dialogue was written appropriately for both time periods, giving the story that extra kick it needed to really pull someone into the scenes and become connected with the characters.
I also loved the humor because Emily was very proper. It gave her an edge of wittiness without coming off as too naive in a modern time (because she had time-traveled to the future.) Liam had a Southern vibe about him that made him sexy and insecure without seeming inadequate to truly be the man for Emily.
The twists and suspense in this story had me consistently intrigued. I could tell Bella enjoys suspense by the way she writes it. I am normally not a big fan of suspense, but this book did it for me because of the romantic elements and fantasy weaved throughout. It’s like nothing I’ve ever read, and I’m looking forward to reading more of Bella’s books! I highly recommend this book to people who love fantasy, time-travel, a sweet romance, and/or suspense…it’s really hard to pin this book down into one category, except to say it’s a must read for anyone who loves any or all of those elements in the stories they read. It’s exceptionally well written.

The secluded community's wild beauty tugs at his Navajo roots, and he's been welcomed with open arms by everyone in town--everyone "except" Lilly Yazhi.
Lilly has encountered her share of strong, silent, "traditional" men within her own aboriginal community, and she's not interested in coming back for more. In her eyes, Clay's earthy, sexy appeal is just an act used to charm wealthy women like his ex-wife. She can't deny his gift for gentling horses, but she's not about to let him control her. There's just one small problem--"she" can't control her attraction to Clay.
But in Virgin River, faith in new beginnings and the power of love has doors opening everywhere....
Enjoyed this book, as always Robyn's books are second to none! I learned about a few new people who came to Virgin River, also. But, as always, the romance of Clay and Lilly stole the show! Very touching story that was sincere and heartfelt with love and passion!(less)

But it means facing the man who affects her like no other—Raoul Broussard.
There was always a spark between Raoul and Crystal, but he is her late husband's brother and she is determined to keep her distance. Yet as sleigh rides and toasty log fires bring her closer to Raoul, Crystal must confront the way he makes her feel—and the heartwarming way he connects with her son.…
This was a very sweet story of a man who knew exactly what he wanted and went after it. Crystal was scared at first, but even she had to admit in the end that they had something special. Family comes in many different kinds of packages, but this family's story is a tender one that touched my heart. Winters captured the romance and conflict all too well and told a story that is sure to make the reader happy in the end!(less)
