Spoiler Alert!

This is the first book I've read by Lynn Kurland. I do enjoy romance novels especially when intertwined with time-travel. This is a cute love story of two people from two different worlds.

Jessica Blakely, travelling in England, wishes upon a star one night to meet her prince charming. She's then somehow transported to the year 1260 and meets up with Richard De Galtres, a knight who is feared by all. All except Jessica, who drives him nuts with her self-confidence and out-spoken tho

Shelves: romance, historical
The book is mainly set in the medieval period. The world-building in this book is excellent, and the characters are well-drawn. The pacing is good, and every scene serves a purpose. The focus is more on the romance than the history. The book will probably appeal most to women who have always wished to marry a knight in shining (or not so shining) armor. There are no explicit sex scenes, but the main characters do have sex after they're married. I'd rate this as "good, clean fun."

Well, this one is going on my favorites shelf. Even though I thought it started off kind of slow, and I felt like it was taking forever, Lord Richard fixed that :) He was gruff and tough and such a teddy bear! He was a true romantic at heart and the way he showed his feelings for Jessica, and then, when he cried when he lost her and didn't care who saw him....won me over!

This is something I'll reread at some point in the future.

5 stars!

I don't normally read time travel romance but since I'm all for the cold, brooding and grumpy type hero. I tried this one out. Boy, oh boy. I was not disappointed! I'm aware that this was a part of a series but can be read as a stand-alone. In fact, this was the first I've read from the series and now I'm committed to reading Lynn Kurland's other works. The writing was exquisite. The story was beautiful. The romance was superb! :)

Witty and enjoyable read.

I was chuckling out loud several times during this book at witty or unexpected conversations. I enjoyed the romantic story of the gruff never smiling man whose heart was slowly being warmed by a woman from the future. His natural reaction to women was that they were not equal to men and could not do things that men did. He was incredulous that she could not sew or cook. Then he was in awe of her archtectural abilities toward the design and building of his castle. I don't

This was the first Lynn Kurland book that I ever read. I had to immediately go out and find more treasures and share them with my family. These are the books I won't have a problem sharing with my daughter. I love that they are rated PG. I read somewhere that the author gets a lot of criticism because she keeps her books PG rated. Hmmmm... isn't it interesting that she is criticized for having standards.

THANK YOU SHIN (aka Bespectacledreader), FOR RECOMMENDING THIS FANTASTIC BOOK TO ME!

This was my first ever Historical Romance and it exceeded all expectations. I didn't think I'd like it. At all. Boy, am I glad to say I was wrong.

I'm just so happy with that ending! 500000 points for that. I'm dead tired right now because I've stayed up all night reading it - but oh well! Absolutely worth it!

The seventh book in the Lynn Kurland's De Piaget series. Twentieth century Jessica Blakely makes a wish on a star and ends up in the thirteenth century. There she encounters the knight of her desires, Richard de Galtres.

A fun and delightful trip via time travel to the 13th century.

Totally swoon-worthy! One of my favorites by this author so far.

Very fun to read when stressed over the holidays! The story of Jessica Blackley and Richard of Burwyck who is a foster son to Robin DePiaget and Kendrick's best friend. The bad guy was a little unbelievable tho? Not the best put together Kurland. It is silly and things are just too easy for this couple. But if you want a fun clean read that doesn't take too much effort this is your book.

This is a classic example of be careful what you wish for. Lynn Kurland really knows how to write time travel novels. I will pick up hers anytime I see them (hence my duplicate copies). I have all of them. Having read them out of order, I suggest reading them in order if you can. The main characters wander in and out of most of the books. It is time travel after all. There is a certain order to them and you meet the characters and learn their back story, as the series develops. The series flows ...more

I started to read this a few years ago but didn't finish for some reason. Now I am currently reading or rereading all the books in the series and decided to try this one again. I am so glad I did. I loved the characters and also enjoyed seeing how things fit in wih the diPiaget family. I feel like I am visitng with family and fiends when I read and reread these books.

I was definitely in the need of a historical romance...and I absolutely adore the reaching family sagas where all the characters keep showing up each others books.

Neither Jessica or Richard were my favorite characters of all time...but their romance was anything but instant, and her determination to steal his horse was incredibly entertaining. Plus who doesn't love Hamlet, Warren, and Kendrick!

Ms. Kurland isn't the most gifted author I've ever read, but I did order a few more of her books on A

An excellent well written time travel romance story! Jessica Blakely meets Richard deGaltres from the past. Love is not a smooth road and you have family, friends and some twists to the main story which makes it very interesting! Add to the mystery, action, romance and humor and mix well for the awesome story you will read! Lynn Kurland writes and excellent series of books which I highly recommend!

One of the best time travel romance books I've ever read.. I love Jessica Blakely.. I love her mouth, her sassy replies and how she isn't one of those push over heroines.. She's the type of lady you would want to be friends with and would be a riot to hang with too.. I especially loved the part wherein our broody hero Richard De Galtres tells her to "stay" and she answers Arff! - that was a real laugh out loud moment for me... Loved it!!!!!

The More I See You
(De Piaget Book #8)
by Lynn Kurland

Genre: Historical Romance | Time Travel

A wish upon a star transports the luckless-in-love Jessica Blakely back in time to the thirteenth century, but her desire for a fair and gallant knight yields the fearsome Richard de Galtres. Though wary of Jessica’s mysterious ways, Richard protectively harbors her in his castle by the sea. Though her stubborn will nearly drives him mad, the very sight of her puts a smile on a face that has known too few.

In honor of Valentine's Day this week I re-read The More I See You by Lynn Kurland. Kurland is my very favorite romance writer because she is such a fantastic storyteller. Many critics claim that she out writes other romance writers by a mile, and I tend to agree. Plus, I like that her books are PG or PG-13: They leave plenty to the imagination! ;P

The More I See You is probably my very favorite of all of Lynn Kurland's books. In Kurland's world, a simple wish upon a star can transport you back i

Let me first state that I have never read a book penned by Lynn Kurland before an after finishing this one, I am in love. This book was just perfection to me an it had me hooked within the first couple chapters - it was that good. Everything was just perfect - the characters, the settings, and the story. I suppose it does help that I love a story with a bit of time traveling in it, I mean who wouldn't want to be given the chance to go back in time to see the past, to walk the paths of great men ...more

My first in the De Piaget series though for this book at least it doesn't seem to matter so much that it's the 8th book and not the first.

Jessica has been enveloped in music since her first piano lessons at five years old, she made her way to college on music scholarships and now makes her living as a composer. Sadly while music has helped her though life it has also taken over her life to the point where she has no friends. Thus we find her on a trip with a blind date in England, *note to self

Paranormal Romance
What started out as a slow typical romance quickly turned into a fantastic paranormal historical romance. The heroine is thrust back in time and into the very unwilling arms of the hero. He's surly, gruff and without the patience to deal with her as he's urgent to repair his keep. The story really picked up once they arrive at the castle when the two characters go from strangers bound together by chance to a reluctant friendship. The hero is tortured by his abusive childhood and as a result he's ...more

Another enjoyable book in the De Piaget series....although once again, doesn't really seem like it belongs in this series. The main characters are Richard de Galtres and Jessica Blakely....neither one a De Piaget. Richard is friends with Kendrick De Piaget, but that's the only connection.

The story itself was okay. Just okay. I liked it, but wasn't amazed by it. Jessica is from the future (1999) and steps through a timegate by accident when visiting England with a random guy that she barely knew

*** In "The More I See You", Lynn Kurland transports modern-day Jessica, of course beautiful and feisty, to medieval knight Richard, of course very tall, dark, and powerfully handsome, however tormented by his past. She wishes on a star and poof. Being in costume, and multi-lingualism on both sides, too handily fix first obvious problems. Healing infection is an over-used yet believable plot device. Lively Sir Kirkland is the only person beloved by both and [spoiler - his death] shows how love m ...more

I read this book for the A Book A Day Keeps the Boredom at Bay challenge. 2 – One is good, two is better. Read a romance book or a book that has a partnership. Two can also mean repetition. Read a book about second chances.

This book was decent, but I feel like it was just too tedious for what it is. The author could have said things in one page, but took five to do it. The time travel aspect is always a fun trope in my opinion, albeit not the most realistic, and it is well done here. The villai

Reading in order of publication makes things a bit easier to understand the Kendrick background and how well she has planned out her books. She inserts tidbits that will come in handy in future stories. But, it's hard to continue to go in published order. Once you are in the inner working of one of the families you find you don't want to leave that family. To be completely honest. I think if I were to give an opinion on how one should read them I would say to surely start with Stardust of Yester ...more

Lynn began her writing career at the tender age of five with a series of illustrated novellas entitled Clinton’s Troubles in which the compelling hero found himself in all sorts of . . . well, trouble. She was living in Hawaii at the time and the scope for her imagination (poisoned fish, tropical cliffs, large spiders) was great and poor Clinton bore the brunt of it.
