I just couldn't finish this no matter how hard I tried to go through with it.
I'm 21% into the book, and I don't care what happens to the characters, I'm done.

“He had to be dreaming. He had vivid dreams, but this? …. This was no dream.”

Usually in historical romances where there is time travel, the heroine is the one who travels back in time. In the “Edge of yesterday” we see that it is the hero who goes back in time and I must say I really liked the idea of putting a modern man, with better views about the equality of genders, in a historical society where it was expected from women to obey and men to rule.

In fact I wouldn’t mind at all if the au

3 stars. An average time-travel story, with an interesting plot but drawn-out delivery. I was about to jump ship on this book when it started to pick up about halfway through.

Cailean Ross is a modern day man that (conveniently) is a champion swordsman participating in medieval reenactments. We begin at The Gathering, a reenactment festival with historical roots in Heatheredge, Scotland. Heatheredge takes their preparations for the Gathering very seriously, so much so that they entire town goes

A fascinating role reversal!

Almost always in time-travel or alternate-universe romances it's the heroine who goes back in time or gets thrown into a different dimension (Outlander being the most famous example). Usually, the heroine has to use her ingenuity to get by and the hero falls in love with her after she demonstrates some amazing modern skill (again, see Outlander).

This story is a really interesting take on that where this time, it's the man who gets sent back in time. Fortunately, he's

This is the first book in a new historical time-travel romance series written by Tarah Scott and Sue-Ellen Welfonder. I am a huge fan of Tarah Scott's books, so when I found out she was co-writing this series with Sue-Ellen Welfonder, I became curious and decided to give this book a go. I am glad I did because I loved it!

Cailean Ross is a modern day professor who also happens to be a world champion swordsman. I wasn't sure if I liked him at first as he came across as conceited and a little full

This book with it's historical premise had me enchanted from the start.
I still want to do a bit more research regarding the specific events discussed here but the info supplied was enough to get me interested.

This book was written by two author but reading it you would never be able to tell that. It is fluid, engaging and the main protagonists, likeable and well enough developed to get me to start rooting for them from the start.

Oh and the evil bloke....he is a real bad guy, the type you love to

How does one handle when your tomorrows become yesterday?

Do you panic? Do you doubt? Or do you go with the flow? Our hero did all, but one thing we learned from the very beginning, he is a survivor! In the progression of this story the authors introduced us to knights of the Scottish realm, hair-raising adventures, and magic as performed by an evil wizard! I am left clambering for more! Please don't have me waiting for more in the tale!!!

Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it. Who hasn’t heard that saying a hundred times? It’s a known fact that what you may think you want isn’t always all it’s cracked up to be. For Cailean Ross his love of medieval fairs and swordplay are about to become more than just a tad bit real.

Cailean Ross is a champion swordsman and jouster who spends his free time traveling to and participating in medieval reenactments and fairs. The pinnacle of his hobby takes place in the village
Sissy's Romance Book Review
'Edge of Yesterday' by Tarah Scott is book one in the " Edge' Series. This is the story of Cailean Ross and Julianna Mackay. This has time travel, a mystery and a very good love story. For me it has everything I enjoy in a romance. It was definitely one book you couldn't not put down and wanted to see what happens next. I thought also Cailean and Julianna were good main characters. There is a cliffhanger of sorts to set you up for the next book....which I can't wait to read!

I don't normally read historical or even time travel stories, but with the two combined here, this one intrigued me...I'm glad I read it. The role reversal of the normal in historical romances was refreshing...the time travel also handled differently than has been the norm was captivating. An overall enjoyable story that transports the reader through time to where you can loose yourself in another time and place.

Modern day Highlander's trip in time

Cailean finds himself thrust back in time to medieval times when as part of a reenactment of the past goes a bit too far. Lucky for the twenty-first century Highlander he has one of the best sword arms seen in the future and the past as he is soon called upon to live or die by the sword. As fate would have it the lovely Juliann is the recipient of his multiple acts of bravery as their story and journey to love unfolds.

Received an ARC copy for an honest review.

Time travel novels have always been some of my all time favorites. I've read quite a few novels where women have gone back in time, fell in love with a knight or a prince, and lived happily ever after. This, however, was an extraordinary change. We instead find a man Cailean Ross, who is a champion swordsman, thrust back into a magical medieval Scotland. Men are disappearing but no one knows where they've gone or why it's happening and he's fallen rig

"Edge of Yesterday" is a collaboration between Sue-Ellen Welfonder and Tarah Scott that is so much fun to read. Cailean Ross is visiting Heatheredge's medieval village and competing in the contests. He is impressed by the village and how it transforms into a medieval village almost over night. He loves it.
During a historical reenactment, Cailean finds himself smack dab in 14th century Scotland. When Heatheredge village WAS a medieval village. He quickly meets and helps save Julianna from a susp

I loved this world. I loved the charm, the struggle's and how evil and still half unexplained the reason for the evil character is. I can guess but I am sure I would be guessing wrong.

I really loved this book and for once in a romance I needed to pay attention. I loved that as well.

I can really recommend this book.

Champion swordsman Cailean Ross is attending reenactment of a lifetime of Heatheredge’s medieval reenactment of the Gathering. His fantasy soon turns into reality when he’s taken back 600 years in time and he comes to the rescue and saves Julianna Mackay who’s fleeing a man she fears is an evil wizard. He soon realizes he has to fight to the death in order to survive. People have been disappearing in both worlds and Cailean finds himself among the ‘missing’ statistics.

It has been a long while since I have read a good Scottish historical romance. This one was even better because of the time travel involved. Found it very hard to put this book down, it was so exciting. The writing was excellent and the content was brilliant. I loved Julianna and Lennox and Cailean is to die for. Bing a time travel book, there are many twists and turns and trying to figure them out just makes this book more exciting. I very much look forward to book two , Edge of Today. Thank yo ...more

I couldn’t stop reading, I could not put it down, the whole time I was in suspense waiting to see what happens next, loved the buildup, the story is amazing. The characters mesh well, loved the interactions between Cailean and Julianna. Made me laugh thought how long it took Cailean to realize he was not in his time anymore, it created quite a few interesting moments for him. The ending was surprising… a good one, I promise

Wow ! Wow and just Wow. This is the best book ever. You can't put it down. You think of these wonderful characters all day. It is so historically correct. You are in 14 th century Scotland. Sue-Ellen and Tarah have out done themselves. I almost cried at the end. Because I didn't want to stop reading about Julianna, Cailean and Lennox. I very very highly recommend this book !!!

A must read!

Wow a true page turner. I was so disappointed when I read the last page and that was the end.
This is a fantastic time travel book. There is suspense, intrigue and hold your breath adventure in every page. Plus a fair amount of HEA that leaves you hanging.
I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series, it can't come soon enough for me.

it was very slow moving at first and finally picked up over halfway through. Lennox was my favorite. Cailean is very likeable and Julianne is everything a highland lass should be. decent action. can't say I'm a big fan of cliffhangers though.

What happens when two historical scottish writers collaborate on a time travel series ? Books that the reader can not put down. Settle into a comfortable chair with snacks because you won't want to move until the last page is turned.
