Dianne Duvall Yes, it's Robert's story. If you've read my Immortal Guardians series, this is the story that plays such a large role in Marcus's background. :-)

One of my go to authors, this book was entertaining. I always love going back in time romances and this one is good. However, I thought where this book fell short was in the explanations of the time travel.

I love Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians series, and this prequel series, The Gifted Ones is an exciting, intriguing and entirely different story arc which can be read as a standalone, but still ties into the original world and its characters. It’s very cleverly done, and this book in particular has brought the two series together beautifully.

Bethany is a bounty hunter who is helping her brother track down two fugitives before everything goes wrong, and in the middle of a forest outsid
Yeah, this was fine. Didn't hold a candle to book 1 though so I have concerns with the progression of this series.

If you’ve had the pleasure of reading Night Reigns you’ll know a little about Bethany. Marcus knew Bethany from his years at Fosterly. As a long lived Immortal Guardian he had the opportunity to spend time with her in the present, before she experienced 1203 medieval England.
Rendezvous with Yesterday is an amazing time travel romance with a small dash of sci fi/paranormal. Seth from the Immortal Guardians brings the other than human aspect to the book. Bethany’s brother Josh is doing his normal

As usual, Dianne Duvall delivers an enchanting love story. I don’t normally like time travel stories, but this one worked for me. Nothing made me think “how does this not affect everything going forward?” That was largely due to the small number of people that end up knowing the truth and what ends up happening to Beth’s things from the future.

I loved Robert in Dillon’s book and it felt so good to see his story play out. It was incredibly neat to see the story after hearing about it from Marcus

I almost didn't read this one once I read the synopsis and saw the bit about time travel, but I really liked Robert from the first book, so I grudgingly gave it a chance. Don't get me wrong, I love time travel novels for the most part, but I just wasn't sure how well it would play out with a headstrong 21st century woman visiting medieval England. It worked, though. Beth is sassy and Robert was, well, just as perfect as he was in A Sorceress of His Own. I really enjoyed his story and how lovely ...more

I absolutely love it. The story pulled me right in and I could not put it down, it was
so good I stayed up till 4am to finish it. I love a story that gets my
emotions involved, whether it makes me smile or laugh out loud or cry.
This one made me cry. It got so bad that I could not see the page or breath threw my nose.
It also makes me want to go back and read the Immortal series again.

Dianne Duvall takes us on a journey into the past unparalleled by even your local Renaissance Faire. While Beth might lack the magical abilities that we saw in Alyssa in A Sorceress of His Own, there is nothing more entertaining then watching this modern woman working her own magic in this male dominated world of the thirteenth century.

For those who are also fans of Dianne’s Immortal Guardian series, this story was a long time coming. When we first met Marcus Grayden in Night Reigns, in 2011, Ma

I was absolutely thrilled to finally receive the second most amazing book from the sensational series, The Gifted Ones. From my all time favourite author, Dianne Duval. I just love another exquisite time travel journey. I'm now ready for another exciting classic romantic adventure!!

I don't know what it is about time travel, but I usually find those kind of stories enjoyable even if they aren't successful. However, this one is quite successful and had me smiling quite a bit while reading it.

Bethany finds herself thrust backward in time to meet the Earl of Fosterly, Robert who we met in the last book. I really liked Robert so I was happy to get his story. Plus, the man is quite swoony! He is a gentleman to Bethany in every way and also very honest and forthcoming. I really e

I HATE that I took so long to get to this book!! It was fabulous. And I didn't realize that it was about the girl that Marcus (from Dianne's Immortal Guardian series) was in love with basically his whole life. It makes what he did even more heartbreaking. Now obviously that was never mentioned in this book but it was cool to know some back story to the characters. And holy crap did I love the characters. I loved all the side characters but most of all Beth and Robert. They are one of my favorite ...more

( Stars Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians series is on my list of favorite paranormal romance/urban fantasy series. When I eventually decided to read her historical paranormal romances, I pretty much kicked myself for not reading them as soon as they came out. They are every bit as good as her Immortal Guardians, and that is saying something! I read the first one, A Sorceress of his Own, and decided to listen to this one instead. Good decision!

Adventures in Time Travelling. That about sums this up. There is no plot. There is no explanation as to why the this heroine goes back in time. And it doesn't really set up the time travel for any future ramifications. So it is a simple story of a woman who goes back in time, hangs out, and falls in love.

Bethany is helping her brother track down a bail jumper, he is a bounty hunter. There is a shootout and she gets shot. By rights she would be dead, should be dead, but to escape death a mysteri

"Rendezvous With Yesterday" by Dianne Duvall. Book 2 in the Gifted Ones series.

I cannot tell you how much I loved this book! Time travel, supernatural elements, humour, action packed and romance all rolled into one. The main characters of Robert and Bethany (Beth) are so cute together!

Bethany is a modern day bounty hunter. When she goes on a mission with her brother, things go wrong really fast. When Bethany thinks her life is over, she wakes up in a place she's not familiar with. But what reall

In Rendezvous with Yesterday, Dianne Duvall paints a brilliant picture of the differences of modern life and medieval England by blending her Gifted Ones series with her Immortal Guardians series and to do so, she only needed a splash of time travel dabbed with a little immortality.

Bethany Bennett is a modern woman who has a normal obsession with her cell phone and a not so normal one for guns. But the guns are important to her work in

4.5 audio and story. I will admit I'm very bias when it comes to DD's works. I absolutely loved that she took one of the better backstories and made it a story that could stand on it's own. Bethany is the object of Marcus' unrequited love, literally falling in love with a time traveler in his teens beginning of the 13th century and he waited 800 years for her to appear back in the 21st century. It was a great back story as to why Marcus was pretty messed up when we first met him in book 1 and wa ...more

Finally!!!! I was really excited to read this book, first because I loved Robert in Dillon and Alyssa's story and, two, because I love time travel. This one did not disappoint!!!
A very intense start, fight to death and dive into the Middle Age, Beth is thrown into an unknown world where she adapts surprisingly well but keep her very unique personality. Robert was kind of the perfect gentleman/knight/prince charming. Maybe a bit too nice and perfect at times but that's being picky haha.

I was kind of teetering between 3 and 4 stars with this one... although I loved the beginning, I did not love the end. I kinda assumed the book was going going somewhere... I get that questions were answered but I did not think there was a climax... at all. I kept waiting for the danger or the excitement to hit but it never came... The girls never came!!!

This was a very good story. I liked both Bethany and Robert and enjoyed seeing how they got together. This story has been coming for a while because of Marcus (the hero from Night Reigns) being part of it and his attachment to Bethany...but, I don't think you need to read Marcus' story to understand this one, just know that there's more going on with Marcus that can be explained in the main series.

Rendezvous With Yesterday is the story of Robert, Dillon's brother from A Sorceress Of His Own. I must say I loved Rendezvous even more.

This one was more light hearted. Anyway, after being on deaths door, Bethany was transported back in time and wakes up in England 800 years earlier. Robert and his men find her, she thinks they are from an reenactment group, and because of her jeans and weapons, they think she is crazy.

I laughed out loud at how Robert and the knights are fascinated at the stuff
Any resemblance between this book and the first book in this "series" is strictly coincidental. This book was Highlander 2: The Quickening. Never muck with the fundamentals of world-building after the fact.

This is a time travel romance, and not a particularly good one. I had a run on time travel romances in my youth, not to mention I adore the Outlander series, and none of them was this never ending stream of pop culture references. They all contained more subtlety. And the time traveler always

Gifted Ones, Time travel and True love
I have loved each and every book in Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians series and this book is a great continuation. Bethany is a fantastic, strong heroine and Robert is simply charming and so protective. I love the time travel aspect (made me think of Michael Crichton's Timeline) and how it factors in to the books I've already read. I am also happy to have more information about Marcus' past and the present of all his cohorts in the Middle Ages. All around

Time travel romance and I absolutely love it!

I probably need to read the first book in the series but I don't think it's necessary.
Also if you already read Marcus's story from Night Reigns, Immortal Guardians series, you want to read this one too, you will meet him here as a young man:)

Do you think one day we will get Seth's book?
Not sure really...
