Cant get enough!!!

Oh wow!!!! Talk about page turning. Broken hearted by a broken engagement meet weeks prior to her wedding, Jaelle buries herself in her beloved history books. A continuation of the beloved time traveling series starring Tavish, Seamus and Tomas... We now get to travel further back in time to see the Picts. Going through her ex Johns stuff in the basement, history lover Jaelle happens upon an odd Roman helmet. Luckily she's on video chat with a time traveling pal when she tries
This book might be listed as book #1 of a new series but after just first 2 pages it is very obviously a part of a larger overall series. You can figure out what is going on enough that you can read the book without reading all the others but I would probably enjoyed it more if I would have read the others first.

With that said, I was not a huge fan of this heroine. She was catty and bitter towards friends who were not to blame for her situation. Oh she had every right to be bitter, just not towa

Jane Stain really has a way of bringing the history to life. i can't wait for more. Just a wondering this book does have a cliff and you do have to wait for a HEA but with this author youll get one you just have to be patient. i love the world Jane created. A world where anything is possible especially time travel. can't wait for the next story and i hope they never stop coming :-)

Scotland and time travel! What could be better?!

Well, more romance, and more books that's what. I loved Jaelle & Breth's story. I love the historical aspect about the Celts, Romans, and Hadrian's Wall, and the time travel twist makes the characters even more interesting and dynamic. I know this series is gonna be great. I can't wait to see what happens in book 2.

Something different

I often see and read books about the Scottish Highlanders, Druids, and occasionally maybe even one or two about Celts. But this was my first reading about the Picts in something besides history books. I absolutely loved it. Jane is becoming one of my favorite authors to read. Im on to the next. I just can't get enough. I took too long to read the first.

This book is terrific but, would really be better read after the Dunskey Castle series, as it will make more sense then but still a terrific read.

As is normal for Jane Stain, this was a great read and I fully recommend this to all.

If you are a fan of Time Travel and Ancient England/Scotland, then this is your kind of book!

Loved it and can't wait for the next book!

The summary suggested so much more

I had a hard time finding the flow of the book. I often thought to put it down and not finish it. I did finish and what a rushed ending making little sense and lots of unanswered questions

Good I began to read this book it sounded just like a movie-series(Outlander) that just came out. That why I knew the outcome, But You have to know...attention grabber. My Favorite.
Worth the read...Although dislike waiting or second book to come out

I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first three. It took forever to get through this book. I was going to skip the next two books but with the ending of this one I have to go on to the next.

Time of the Celts

I don't know what to say but wow. I loved the story. Jaelle was great as the heroine. Strong not to mouthy, she had her moments. Breth as the hero, he to was strong and knew what he wanted. Can't wait for the next book to come out.

A good book historically, can't wait to start the next volume to read more of the story . Well developed characters and documentation on the wall was great. I was born in England and had visited Hadrians Wall as a child, even though it was pretty much destroyed it was very impressive. Anyone who loves history will enjoy this novel immensly.

Quick read.

I liked the historical aspects about the Celts and Romans. It makes me want to read more to learn about the Celts. A little frustrated with how short the story was. It seemed strange that the boyfriend would leave behind his method of time travel for it to be used.

A quite different kind of time travel, to have objects and to have a choice to go. But then to have no memory when you come back. Quite an interesting viewpoint of the pics. Looking forward to see how the story moves on from here.

A wonderful time travel romance. Ms. Stain does not let the reader down with another awesome story. Great plot, great characters. There's action, suspense, adventure and romance. I loved this book and look forward to the next one. Brava Ms. Stain.

Shelves: historical
I thought this was a fun little romance story. Written in a rather tongue in cheek way. I found it a humorous irreverent historical story like the movie "Year One".
