Oh, my heart. Debut author Melissa MacKinnon takes readers on a breathtaking journey where passion and danger posi-freaking-lutely explode. Yep, I said it. They 'SPLODE! Brynn and Marek can't even exchange glances without sparks flying, so when they get close you can count on your e-reader getting a little too hot to handle. MacKinnon's voice is unfailing, and her ability to convey these characters will have you so invested in the story that when you hit the end you're going to have a big sad wh ...more

I love reading Historical Romance, and although this has a fantasy element which I wouldn't normally choose, I am so glad I read it. Melissa Mackinnon has skilfully woven an ancient time and place into the story so that it is totally believable. Brynn, a blonde haired blue eyed daughter of an Engel is mistreated in the home of her dark haired father and brothers. She sticks out as coming from the Archaean lands, their direct enemies. Abused and beaten, Brynn is rescued by Marek, a warrior bounty ...more

Enemy to lovers is a beloved trope in the romance genre. With good reason, for it proves that love can overcome many obstacles.

Read full review in the 2014/2015 Holiday issue of InD’tale Magazine.

I adored everything about this book. I stayed up way too late reading it. It was beautifully written and an engaging book from page one to the very last page.

This is an adult novel recommended for 17+. I absolutely loved every minute of it. Recommended.

Could not put it down. Loved how Brynn, after a few flubs, becomes the heroine of the story

This is one you don't want to miss

Melissa has mad a great start with her first book, her main characters as well as the secondary characters were well developed ,well thought out and will leave you hoping that she will bring them back in future books. There are two different type of people here the Archaean ,who are born and raised to be warriors (bounty hunters) and the Engel, who are people who have the titled rich,and the peasants. And their is a war going on.The Archaean Marek Coinnich ,on

A very good historical romance with very interesting paranormal/mysical content. I found this book highly enjoyable and devoured it in just over one sitting. I simply couldn't put it down. I would rate it a 4 1/2stars mainly due to the editing. I found quite a few sentences throughout the book that I had to reread several times to understand the meaning due to the way it was worded. A good editor would've caught that and smoothed it out. I by know means have trouble reading and comprehending, ve ...more

Let me begin by saying that this book is NOTHING like I was expecting. I was expecting a regular romance with some historical and paranormal twists. What I got was something so much more. To begin with - I was immediately pulled into this story. You couldn't help but feel sorry for Brynn as she is accused of things she did not do, and sentenced to a punishment (by her own father nonetheless) that would surely kill her. Marek establishes himself pretty early on as someone who protects others (es ...more

Beautifully written book from cover to cover. With the turning of each page, it left me wanting more. This historical romance was set in a time where warriors were out to get blood and this book has plenty of great battle scenes, intertwined with a truly magical romance. It was incredibly easy to place yourself in the story within the first few pages and read without wanting to stop. Brynn, a daughter of an Engel, is suddenly thrown into the arms of Marek, who is an Archaean warrior, and the sto ...more

I. LOVE. THIS. BOOK! Return to Me is a historical romance with a captivating plot. War, jealousy, unrequited love, passion, and a bit of magic all combine in this amazing tale. You will laugh, you will cry, you will curl your toes in anticipation! I almost instantly became immersed, and could not put this book down. The story features Brynn and Marek, forbidden lovers who are simply not meant to be… or are they? When these two enemies meet, the sparks fly- but they come from different worlds, an ...more

Melissa MacKinnon's debut novel better not be her last.

Here's what you can expect:

A hot hero who isn't always able to do exactly what you would expect (or want, paired with a heroine who isn't afraid to be a woman but is spunky, headstrong and determined to survive.

Toss in a few endearing minor characters, a hint of magic, and a few twists you will never see coming and you have a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Don't expect an easy road for MacKinnon's couple, they have more

I have to say, I was surprised at how much i enjoyed reading this book. This was a first for me. with the setting being back in the old ages. I literally felt i was taken back in time, and watched a love story unfold. It was nerve racking to read what all the characters had to go through to find each other, but at the same time i was glad their love for each other prevailed when everything was working against them. I highly recommend reading this book. its a great read and i am looking forward t ...more

Struggled with this book

wanted to give 2 1/2 stars...the last quarter of the book improved a lot. A dose of the paranormal helps this tale at the ending. Would not read the sequel.
I loved this book. The storyline was pretty typical for a historical romance, but the weaving in and out with a fantasy theme was really skillfully done. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author ...more

Great reading

I enjoyed reading about Marek and Brynne and all the other characters that made a family and a love that wouldn't die. It had a lot of hope in it.....just what I needed.

Fans of historical romance will enjoy this (even if it not really historical), but fans of paranormal romance will find it lacking.

Melissa grew up surrounded by dragons, fearsome creatures, and damsels in distress from the wonderful world of make believe. She soon found her ideas on paper, littering her desk with hand-drawn world maps and character biographies. Study hall was used not for homework, but for writing. Although she later pursued
a career in theater, the written word never left her. Melissa now leads a very full l
