When Lightning Strikes

For Megan, illumination came in thunder-crash. She was not the pawn of abusive men. She had power of her own. And though the modern world disappeared and everything she’d ever known spiraled into oblivion, the strange warrior who appeared to her gave the once-meek beauty a sweet felling that everything would be all right.

He was too gorgeous to be a ma

The story is about a woman who went back 900 years to meet a man. She was fearful that he would hit her like her modern fiancee that she was meeting to break it off. Turns out that Kenric (the man 900 years ago) isn't the type who hit women. All Kenric wanted was a land to call his own. Megan told him in a fib for her safety that if he would return her to her fiancee, the fiancee would give him land.

They went on a journey together through the realms of Earth and Rune (fairy). With Megan, Kenric

Every once in a while a book will totally take you by surprise. Powerful Magic falls into that category. I love it when that happens. :)

This is going to be a hard review to write, simply because I don’t want to give too much away. There are so many twists, turns and secrets slowly revealed that happened as the story unfolded. *sigh*

Megan finds herself thrown into the past. She’s instantly attracted to Kenric, her unwilling savior. Kenric, however, has no time for anything other than his own pers

I enjoyed the story, but I have to say it was a struggle to make myself read past the first page. I know this was self-published and free, but I really had a tough time with the misspellings and incorrect word choices. Also, I have never in my life read a work if fiction where words were underlined. Fragmented sentences were also a big issue. This author
Would benefit greatly from the skill of a good copy editor.

Although there were many errors throughout this book, I liked the story behind it. And even though I think things were resolved much too easily (and with the same answer), I definitely get the point.

Chemistry between the two protagonists was good, though a little too obvious. Other than that, the read was a bit longer than I expected but moved quickly. There's character growth from both Megan and Kenric, which is always a plus in my book.

This was a little diferent from my usual reads. It is a time travel with the different in times begin our time about 1065, and they have the good guys and the bad guys and faierys. Proves that love is the answer.
