TRAPPED IN TIME
London attorney, Shakira Constantine, finally agrees to spend the day with her handsome client, Alex Lancaster. While riding in the countryside, the couple finds themselves caught in a time warp and transported back to the 14th Century, and an England preparing for war. Everyone believes Alex is the Baron Guy Guiscard...a baron who died in the upcoming battle.
If they can’t find a way to return to the 21st Century, Alex will have to sail with the army to certain death. Shakira will be left alone to survive in the alien and terrifying medieval world.
I really enjoyed this one being that I haven’t’ read a historical/time traveling romance in a bit. The story took me by surprise because you start of in modern day London with famous record producer Alex Lancaster who spots beautiful Shakira Constantine at a party they are both invited to.
After finding out she’s the best friend of Miranda whose his best friends wife. Alex sets out to have Shakira as his. After getting her to spend an platonic weekend with him at his country cottage outside of London, both are transported back to medieval London while horseback riding one afternoon. Surprised and shocked (just like I was), Shakira finds out the Alex is Baron Guy Guisard, who died in battle along with his friend Basil. As Shakira and Alex try to find their way back to the 21st century, Shakira tries to adjust to medieval London and also keep Alex/Guy from his impending death.
This story was GOOD. I loved it from the beginning to the end. The story was consistent and well written. The characters were strong as well. I loved Shakira’s attitude throughout the whole story. She was tough, but she was also there for Alex when he needed her to be. Alex is one of my new book boyfriends’ lol! He was strong and oh did he have his alpha male thing going on. Especially while they were trapped in the past. I thing Shakira wanted to strangle his a couple of time (I know I did...lol)
Chris Karlsen has a new fan. I didn’t read the first book in this series, but I’m definitely picking it up SOON.
