In order to get the man she had been obsessing about, Shelby Hollier had done unimaginable and unladylike things. Like stealing Solomon Tremaine's wallet and stalking his home and trespassing his property. Before she knew it, she was sucked into a wormhole and into a world she never imagined still existed. In the 1300s.

Solomon Tremaine was such a darling... (well, compared to his other siblings, that is). Shelby was a brave heroine, one who stood on her own and got a good head on her shoulders.

What do I think? Let me tell you this...I read the book before going to sleep and never got that sleep. I read it in one sitting. I read it the whole evening. By the time I finish it, it was already dawn. I tried to stop reading but obviously that didn't happen. It was that good. The same thing has happened to me, if I remember it correctly, when I read The Guardian and Category Jeremy.

Book 1 is about Elizabet and Jareth - the parents. Book 2 is about Beau and Jeremy - their oldest (adopted) son

First, I want to thank Elizabetta for allowing me to read her wonderful series! I am going to start by saying that I loved, no obsessed over Category Jeremy. It is definitely without a doubt my favorite book so far in the series. I was intrigued by The Guardian and blown away by Category Jeremy, but The Heir was all together another story. It is one that I did enjoy, but I will not be rereading it anytime soon.
What makes The Heir different is that it has a lot more action and time traveling than

I want to start off by saying that I really enjoyed the book, but it was kind of slow at times. I've been reading The Heir for about two months, and I used a maximum of one month when I read the other two books. Honestly, I don't know what made this book so much worse to read, because I can't put a finger on it. It's not a bad book, it might just be that I should not have read it right after I was in a reading slump. I will definitely continue the series when the next book drops!

So how should I start this review without being so obvious about how obsessed I became after reading it?

It’s been a while now since the author, Elizabetta, sent me a copy of this book, and I’ve only had the time to pick it up recently. I started reading this book on Christmas Eve as soon as I was offered the chance to do so, and read it through during Christmas day. And as much as I love spending time with my family during this time of the year, I couldn’t put this down as soon as I started it.

A fascinating and fast-paced tale, well-written and unlike any other story I've read. This isn't your typical time-travel romance. The residents of medieval Dover Castle exist and blend into our modern society just as they live in reign in the fourteenth century. Even though this is the third book in the series, this is the first book that I've read in the Chronicles of Dover's Amalgam. I promise you now, however, that it won't be the last. Upon viewing the synopsis, I especially look forward to ...more

I received a copy of this book through a social media book review page and said I would post an honest review of it.

I loved this book. It combines small town life in modern times Louisiana and both time and distance traveling to make this story such a wonder to read. I loved the experiences, the romance between Shelby and Solomon, the lighthearted exchanges between siblings in the royal family, it all makes reading this novel a worthy experience. I look forward to reading future novels from this

I have to start by saying this an extremely unique read. In a genre that sometimes doesn't have stories that really stand out, this one sure does. It is a fabulous YA title, and while it is book 3 in a series, you can totally read it as a standalone. I loved the characters, and the dialogue flowed smoothly.

I was so appreciative that the author gave me a copy, that I couldn't wait to review it.

Shelby the heroine and Dover's castle connection.... a fabulous time travelling novel. Once you catch it is a time travelling novel... Holcomb did a great job with this book. Must read. There are so many things with in this book that make you not want to put it down. Knowing when you first start reading it that it is a time traveller book makes the flash back flash forward much easier to adjust too.

First - WOW! This book blew me out of the water. The action, suspense, romance...all that hangs in the balance, will combine to have your heart racing yet aching. Elizabetta has mastered a delicious mix of emotions to play upon the readers heart, combining to make this an unforgettable read you won't want to put down!

This book was an intriguing read, different from anything else I've read. Those time traveling through me off a couple times, but over all it was a lot of fun. I throughly enjoyed this read and was drawn to the story and its characters until the last page.

I think other readers of this genre will enjoy the story and even ones that are wanting something different.

A sweet and well crafted fantastic fairy tale.

Following the adventures of Shelby and Salomon through time and love will make your heart soar.
The dynamics of the Duke of Dover family is something apart. A well created world for adventure and romance.
The characters are so well created that in the course of less than half a book you will be falling in love with them and wishing the book never ends.
Very well done indeed.

Wonderful fantasy

I fell in love with the characters in this story. Most young ladies dream of a knight in shining armor coming to sweep them away. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great fantasy.

Sorry When It Ended

This book was a little hard to follow at first but I did not realize it was part of a series. Hated to put it down. Great story that had me tearing up at times. Original story line for over-done time travel. Funny and serious that works.

Loved it!

It's been a while since I've really enjoyed a book. I liked everything about this one. I can say it's a really good book to end the year. :)

The Heir is the third book in the 'Chronicles of Dover's Amalgam' by Elizabetta Holcomb. Although I believe it can be read as a stand alone story, I think it would be helpful to have read the first two books before this one. I think a better idea of the characters and the Amalgam would be helpful with following this book more easily from the very start.

This is the story of Solomon Tremaine, a man from the 1300s, the Marquis of Hastings. He is the heir to the Dukedom which amongst all the usual t

I loved, loved, loved this book! Ms. Holcomb puts a new twist on time travel stories. I loved living in the universe that is this book. Its book 3 of the Chronicles of Dover's Almagam but I read it as a stand alone.
The main characters are adorable. Solomon Tremaine, the Marquis of Hastings, the heir to Dover seat and grandson to King Edward has a learning disability and is preparing for the MCAT. (Yes, this book is quite unique.)

This wasn't a bad book. It was not what I expected. There is time travel but the time base was the the middle ages and not present time. The family we follow can travel through worm wholes into anytime periods. They are the guardians that try and preserve the timeline as it should happen. I found it strange when I read that there was an air con in the middle ages! But it is understandable. If you can travel through time you can bring back technology and equipment to help you, like, medicine whic ...more

What a story. I loved his book and I had a hard time putting it down. It was that good. I think I might have to do a re-read soon.

Crazy and interesting

It's not for everyone. You may think of giving up at the begining. It's too much of a mix of time travelling, or time jumping, to and from, mixed with a paranormal part that's hard to understand, with medieval and modern struggles. But once you get the way of It, it's a Very interesting story, with a Nice couple among a good family. Again, not easy to follow, specially If you don't like the genre. My low point was, as a Brazilian, that I knew that something wrong was gonna b

Super heavy with religions themes. Also any relationship that starts of this stalking and stealing someone's wallet is not a relationship I want to invest in. A no for me.

while the plot intrigued me... the story didn't suit me so much.

The storyline is good, but just not my cup of tea.
