One moment in time was all it took…
She shouldn’t be here… She can’t even recall how she got here.

Except for the dream. Mya Boyle remembers the dream. She knows it’s somehow connected to her past, her present and the future.

Mya woke one morning in a field, a stag grazing close by as if it didn’t even notice her. She lay bare, like a babe from the womb, except for a woo

An alright book. Not the best though. Too many "sexy parts" for me though. Did have some cute parts that I enjoyed.

Overall 3 stars.

Terrible. And the narrator was a disaster. I've never heard a more ridiculous fake Scottish accent in my life. I don't care that this ended in a cliffhanger. I have no interest in reading more.

This was not my cup of tea! I do not enjoy cliffhangers at all, and the writing is way too modern. When the hero said he was in his birthday suit, that just about did it for me. He was NOT the time traveler! The plot is practically nonexistent because this one is really just one sexual encounter after the other. I hate writing a bad review, but I just could not rate this any higher. Maybe it will work better for others. Happy reading!
1.5 stars.

For being the first book, there was no explanation or backstory to wtf is going on and why Mya woke up naked and not remembering anything. The story consisted of just a bunch of sex, not even interesting sex, a few scenes with an angry/lustful man, and random scenes with a stag. Also if you are going to have her obsessed with not killing this white stag, you should explain, at least a little, why she is.

This ended in a cliffhanger but i will not be reading the second one because of h

Fun to read but the plot didn't really go anywhere. It was a handy story to pick up and put down while waiting for appointments, etc.

The main character is Mya who suddenly arrives in the Scottish highlands but with no indication of where she is from (so that eliminates any difficulties for the author). Kayden, the handsome fellow who discovers her offers her his protection and home. There is instant attraction. A flimsy story is concocted to explain her sudden arrival in his hut and she is slowl

Lost in Time

I was now completely excited to read the first amazing series, Moment in Time. With such a exciting romantic Scottish adventure. Such a most wonderful tale of all.

As Mya awoken watching the rays of the sunset. She watched in the distance at the stag close by. Mya noticing she was stark nude!Finally noticing the man there shooting arrows at the animal. She stood up to protect this animal too. Only realising now the animal wouldn't go away. She had totally lost all her memory too! Scar

This is my first book in the 2017 book reading challenge and here I am reviewing it in day3 since I started the book.
This is the first book of the author that I am reading. I picked up the book when it was free on amazon and I picked it up for historical romance theme with Scottish background. However, the book turned out to be an erotica. The hot steamy scenes in details in all the chapters can hook you up if you enjoy reading this genre. The rating I gave for those scenes as the author did a

A little bit to long

Was a little to confused to start. And then the story started off great!

Mya falls through time and meets Kayden in the rough highlands of Scotland. The basics ensues that regularly happens in romances. They of course fall in love. A white stag plays an important part to skipping time.

All in all book was well written, it just got redundant and boring. I eventually skimmed pages just to get to the epilogue and didn't miss anything. Beware it is a cliffhanger and you'll have to

I started reading this book because it was free on Amazon, so I figured why it download it. It had a cute storyline, but I felt like there was a lot missing I felt like a background needed to be built up. The end left with quite a cliff hanger and that made me sad. I am unlikely to read the next book unless that becomes free.

I must have missed the time travel part. Although the storyline has a lot of sexual situations it is very boring. The beginning seems interesting, the middle just the same stuff, and finally at chapter sixteen we get more story. I wouldn't waste your time on this book unless you really just want read about to people having sex.

Decently steamy but odd plot and weirder ending. Not sure what actually happened aside from sex.

“Remember enough of the past… You may be able to control your future.”
All she saw was the sky. It was a deep cerulean with an occasional billowing white cloud, like a desolated island in a sea of blue. She couldn’t remember the past, how she had arrived at this particular moment of time, or indeed where she was. She didn’t feel any alarm or, in fact, anything. it hadn’t even registered, until she stood, that she was complete and utterly naked. From her bare feet to her unadorned head she was as

I started reading this book because it was a series and I thought it looked interesting. The writing style was good however, there were sayings and wording in the book that did not match the time/year the characters were in. I've never seen a highlander book that was based back in time where the main character says hes in his birthday suit. It just didn't match up and I wish it would have.

I've always loved historical romance and for the most part this book was good. There are a lot of sex scenes

A woman wakes up naked in a field of grass with a white stag grazing nearby...she has no clue how she came to be there, no memory of anything at all except her first name...Mya. The handsome highlander who finds her brings her home with him to his humble cottage, and they eventually fall in love. This was a pretty good story, but we never found out who she was or where she came from! If there's one thing I hate, it's an unresolved story...I'm not a fan of cliffhangers, especially when you read a ...more

If you don’t like cliff hangers you may not like this as it appears the story of Mya is covered in several books. I expect the story is probably going to have an interesting conclusion but I personally got frustrated with the slow moving storyline. I love having a book with well defined and meaningful sex in it but I felt that two full large chapters devoted to one sex session, one for her, one for him just lost the whole plot for me. The author is capable of writing well but I just felt this wa ...more

The start of the book was promising. She wakes up in a field with no memories, finds Kayden, etc. They didn't hate each other like the summary implied, they were just strangers. The only thing suggesting time travel is the title. I know she "time travels" to other places, and that's the rest of the series. But really it just seems like they're alternate universes. And there really wasn't any conflict, and therefore plot. Sure, there's a man's unwanted attention, but that's about it. I wasn't thi ...more

While the story of Mya starts out promising, it slowly progresses & doesn't evolve very much, at all. The title indicates that its supposed to be a story of time travel, but doesn't give you any hint of that at all, aside from Mya's dream and showing up mysteriously in the field that day. While the scenes are fantastically written, I feel as though the story itself just seems a bit stunted. There are so many ways this could have flourished into a beautifully detailed tale of love thru the ag ...more

Let me start by saying a book that doesn't end and forces readers to buy teh next book to know the end is not a book it's a marketing gimmick. This starts with Mya suddenly appearing in the Highland woods. Kayden lives remotely and finds her. A very heated romance develops and things get hot. Mya learns to fight and a mysterious stag keeps following her. What happens in the end? No clue.
You don't seem to get grounded in the story because the language is current and this is supposed to be histor

!Continued Story, Not a Stand Alone

The plot is good, but the explicit sex was just too much! There were many sequential pages of very graphic sex descriptions Some can be nice, but this was just ridiculous; if this was made into a movie it would be a XXX! And as the first book nears the end, the heroine disappears. She shows up in another place again having amnesia in the next book.. Some of the dialogue is modern instead of what would be used in the given year of the story. I won't be buying th

I love time travel books but this was just unfinished, no beginning no end, she never remembers anything of her life, the reader gets no hints of her life or why the time travel is used or what part the white stag plays. Even the villain has only an introduction no resolution. The sneak peek is not enough to read the second book for me. It seems to indicate the same outline as this book

First let me say that I really wanted to rate this like 2.5 Stars. The author gives the Title that the young lady will be a bride.. but in fact she is not, as she is swept away to the next time before it can be. So the title is completely off.

Now, lets move to the story line. It lacks so much. Like a ending.. the beginning is good but never explains the reason for it, you have to assume. I love the ideal of this story but it misses so much!

In order for a book to be considered time travel, for me, I need a sense of where Mya has come from and when she's landed. This is a mystery to both Mya and the reader. Then when is a time when they ride horses and use swords and bows. That's a pretty big time span. And nothing says she's necessarily from current, modern times. Add to this, the reader is left with a cliffhanger!

This book came in a ebook pack so it wasn’t in my normal reading genre. Not into erotica. Skipped most all the sex scenes. Was waiting for the climax of the book to resolve unanswered questions, but they were not explored and left as a cliffhanger for next book. The writing was very modern for the time period it was set in, which I didn’t enjoy. Worst modern phrase used: “Birthday suit.”

It could have been a good story but I found not enough substance 2 the story n way 2 much sex. I kept reading because I wanted 2 find the connection between the girl n the stag but I reached end of book without that knowledge and seems the girl might be returning 2 her previous life? This book leaves u hanging.

A freebie from Amazon and one that gets you hooked so that you buy the rest of the series!

It was a fun read sweet in places with some sexy scenes thrown in as well to get you hot under the collar. I will probably get the other four books in the series only as I don't like not knowing what happens!

this is not book 1 its part one

Was ok but the story line did drag on a little and as you want to know if she recovers her memory you have to keep going. You dont find out as your left on a cliff hanger.

It is well written and like I said because of the story line you have to keep going wish I had part two before I started.

A bit unexpected as the story grows. She seems to be stuck in some kind of time loop with no memories of her past. And, I’m guessing that with each book she’ll fall for the same man only to have gain bits and pieces of her memory. If only there were more of a focus on the development of the characters relationship.

Commander's Bride

I have to say the book really confused me. It really didn't explain Mya's past or go into any detail about why she time traveled if she actually did. I loved the story between her and Kayden but then the ending threw me for a loop. If the ending and what I read in the preview of The second book I am really not happy with the ending.
