From Goodreads: Agent Alex Raines takes no prisoners—in her job or in her personal life. But all of that changes when the time travel organization The Lineage sends her to 1793 Revolutionary France. Used to a “get in, get out,” modus operandi, she finds her heart and will tested by local English nobleman Lord Gabriel Huntington, whose reasons for being there are as deceptive as her own.
In the midst of revolution and betrayal, can these two learn to take off the disguises and trust each other? Or will the fate of the world and time travel rest on Alex’s ability to betray the one man she has come to love?
This was a wonderful story and I couldn’t put it down. I’ve always been a sucker for time-travel romances, but this has got to be one of the best ones I’ve ever read. The characters are believable and the chemistry between the main characters is undeniable. This book will have you routing for their love through everything that happens throughout the story. Alex is a strong heroine and someone that readers can look up to. She fights for herself and does what she feels is right, regardless of what time period she’s in. Gabriel is a hero that readers can find themselves falling for. One thing that always bothers me is when the hero in a romance just isn’t attractive and there is nothing substantial between the hero and heroine. That isn’t the case in this novel.
Another aspect of this novel that is so great is that you can never be sure what’s going to happen next. I was guessing until the end and even THEN the author kept surprising me. I would definitely recommend this book to romance lovers out there, especially if you have an interest in history and/or time-travel. It is definitely worth it to pick this book up. It is a very well-written novel. 🙂
