This is the first review of Lynn Kurland's time-travels that I've written in a while because... well... I was a little disappointed by the last several. Disappointed as in I-only-liked-them instead of I-loved-them. At the same time, others I knew absolutely DID love them! So (especially since I was hard-pressed to define anything specific) it seemed best to skip reviewing them.

This one, however, I do most definitely love. It has the flavor and romantic pacing of Lynn's older romances (which have

Late comer to this series, so I am reading this for the first time. Love these time travel books!

How in the world could things get any worse for Peaches Alexander? Her best client has just thrown in the towel and her other clients are rapidly following suit. Although spending a lot of time in England with her sister wasn’t in her immediate plans, it seems that Peaches has little choice. Perhaps the invitation she received to the ball held by the very eligible Duke of Kenneworth might change her fortunes.

Unfortunately, no one comes to pick her up at the train station and Peaches is forced to

I saw a castle this morning and I thought it was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Just look at the cover art, it's G-L-O-W-I-N-G!!! WOW!!

I have been waiting year for this book to come out and I'm glad I finished it with a smile. I had doubts to like this book in the beginning because it started a little slow. Not my favourite but still a good story.

Loved the book. I really liked Stephen in his appearances in earlier books. He is one of the quieter members of the family, but I always got the feeling there was a lot more to him than it appeared at the time. Peaches is at a crossroads in her life. Her previous work as a life coach/organizer has come to a screeching halt, and she isn't sure where to go from there. She has been invited to a gathering by the Duke of Kenneworth that Stephen attends also. There has been trouble between those two f ...more

All for You is Lynn Kurland's latest romance novel. I think that she is the very best romance writer, and I appreciate that her books are PG. Her stories are always so much fun, and she injects humor and witty dialogue in all of her books.

All for You is Stephen de Piaget and Peaches Alexander's story. I have never been a big fan of Stephen's until this book. He might be one of my very favorite de Piaget men of all time! He is a Cambridge history professor and the future Earl of Artane. I always

Ahhh! Spring is in the air. For me, that means sitting outside in the sun with a cool breeze and a good book. It also means that I can look forward to an evening spent with a chivalric de Piaget or a dashing MacLeod. And this spring, that de Piaget lad was Stephen, the future Earl of the magical castle Artane.

Stephen de Piaget has a problem. Well, he has many. For one thing, he is a Cambridge professor of Medieval Studies who is torn between his public persona of being the heir to an ancestral f

9/27/12 : I love Lynn Kurland books! I want to be either a McCloud or a de Piaget. What awesome families, and so much fun and romance. Yes, a little heavy on the sugar & fantasy perfection, but who cares. They are so fun to read!

6/21/17: a little more sugary sweet than I remembered, but still enjoyable to read. The interaction with all the rest of the family is really fun. Didn't live the narration. Her voice was too low & hard to understand.

I really liked this one! Loved how Stephen was so nervous and was constantly putting his foot in his mouth. It made the romance so much sweeter. LOVED that we got to see Nicholas and Robin and caught a bit of Nicholas's sons. Made me love the de Piaget family all over again.

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Get drawn in every time you pick it up.

Opening Sentence: If life were a set of scales, Peaches Alexander could safely say that Fate had just dumped a load of bricks on the opposite balance.

The Review:

Ever come across a storyline and find it difficult to be able to summarize it all in one page?

We enter this story as our heroine, Peaches’ life has suffered a major upheaval. It seems that her sister intercepted a phone call from one of her more

Fourteenth in the De Piaget paranormal romance series about the De Piaget family throughout time. The couple focus in this story is on Peaches and Stephen de Piaget, the future Earl of Artane in a contemporary England.

My Take
The ghosts are matchmaking again.

Peaches makes me nuts. She's magnified some comments Stephen made into this HUGE thing, and he's actually the fairy tale she claims to want. Not believable. She is so bloody overly sensitive about organic chemistry. Why be so damned sensitive

All for you (from the marvellous DePiagets)

This Book is absolutely the best Story of the DePiaget Family. If You love Time Travel you will love this Story. If You love Romance you will love this Story. Read this Book and you will enjoy several hours of a very good Story indeed. I

This one not as exciting as others past in series. I love Peaches and Steven, but the first half of the book finds them seeming wishy washy. The people they became in the last half are Heroes to root for and fall in love with. I would have liked a bit more of the destroying of the Duke, but it was great it happened.

I always enjoy Lynn Kurland’s books. Her writing quality is difficult to surpass and not many authors do. She makes you feel good, gives you love and romance, along with a bit of action, and you always sigh when that last page is read. Even when you’re so behind in reading the series and it’s nearly a year after the book’s release. Sigh. Someday I’ll be caught up! ;)

Our hero and heroine in this edition of the de Piaget series have a prior history and don’t really get along all that well. Peaches

This book is nothing like I thought it was going to be, Lynn Kurland is amazing Author even though I liked A dance though time a whole lot more, but that's just me. This one did get me a bit confessed at first with the whole ghost thing but I began to realized that God Sends people to us either shows us the right path or to guild us to the right person and that was cool, But granted that some ghost aren't there for the reasons and some are so you have to be careful with.

Okay, so there were definitely a lot of things I did like about this book. Like the fact that Stephen is drool-inducingly perfect in every way. Like the fact that we get to see a modern couple, choose to time travel for a specific reason. Like the fact that we get to see tons of old characters from past books again. Those kinds of things.

But I didn't really like the actual romance of this story! First of all, Peaches is not only a mind-numbingly stupid name, she is an incredibly boring character
Jun 10, 2012 rated it it was amazing
The beautiful thing about Lynn Kurland's books is that she weaves bits and pieces of previous storylines into whatever current story you are reading. All For You was a pretty intersting DePiaget family reunion of sorts, with several of the Artane lads across various centuries encountering each other through time. The ever-present trio of Ambrose MacLeod, Hugh McKinnon and Fulbert dePiaget-ghosts and time travelers extraordinaire-is always fun, although they were seriously left out of this book w ...more

This is book 14 in an ongoing series and the first book I have read by Lynn Kurland. It should have been a problem and yet I enjoyed myself immensely and am keen to read earlier entries in the series.

There is no escaping the fact that this book is SILLY. Everyone is very blasé about time travel and class and ghosts and all kinds of shenanigans which would provoke a much stronger reaction from sane people placed in a similar position, but once you adjust to the silliness, it's easy to have fun.

First a preface to my review: Lynn Kurland is the one real romance author that I enjoy reading. Her books are enjoyable without being full of the same (or any!) sex scene written repeatedly in differing locations. I enjoy the development of the relationship and the simple love story. Of course they are still romance novels, which means they are predictable, without well-fleshed out characters, and the time travel doesn't have any true believability. That said, I find Kurland's books to be fun, e ...more

"All for You" war ein Zufallskauf. Ich hatte zuvor schon einige Fantasyromane von Lynn Kurland gelesen, die mir gefallen hatten, und habe so spontan "All for You" in meinen Warenkorb gelegt - ohne zu ahnen, dass es sich bereits um den 14. Band einer Reihe handelt.

Tja, leider ist der Einstieg zu einem späten Moment der Reihe nicht so einfach gewesen. Zwar war die Hauptgeschichte, die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Peaches und ihrem Lord Stephen nicht schlecht, auch wenn ich nicht verstehe, wie man si

Stephen de Piaget and Peaches Alexander finally have their story and what a story it was. You will find yourself burning through the pages, laughing out loud and even shedding a tear or two. This story was so wonderfully written and in some parts I'm sure we the reader can relate (minus the time travel of course) with events or situations which makes this so much more endearing. One thing I wished happened was a more elaborate storyline when Stephen and Peaches travelled to Regency Artane. That ...more

Well, this time one of my fav's was 60 and no mention was made of his father Rhys (who was also my fav) and I handled it very well... I wasn't obsessing about where Rhys was...
