Review by Bubbles The Book Pimp

Shaye is a Tour Manager, following the disappearance of her artist and best friend Rayne… Shaye is devastated to learn that everyone has moved on… but not Shaye, she hasn’t rested and won’t until she finds her.

After jumping on a plane to Rayne’s last know abandoned warehouse in Chicago.

After waking up in the woods disorientated she finds sanctuary in a cabin with a Native American man named laughing crow, badly beaten..Crow knows of Shayne, she is Married to his best friend Sam.

It takes Crow some convincing but Shaye finally realises and accepts she has somehow been transported back through time…

During an awful storm in which Shaye and Crow take shelter in an abandoned cabin, they begin to develop feelings for each other.

However Crow knows it is futile to even look at the beautiful woman before him… he is an outcast neither Caucasian or Native American he is both and doomed to be alone no matter how much he wants or loves Shaye.

Shaye knows that she loves Crow…but cannot stand the thought of hiding their relationship or love from anyone just because of Crow’s heritage… and returns to her own time… what she doesn’t expect is for Crow to pursue her….

So I’m late to the Civil War Brides Party, this is book 7 in the series. I hadn’t read any of the other books ( YET) but that blurb on the back was just too intriguing not to read. There are a lot of characters featured in this book but the author gives great snippets of backstory so I didn’t feel lost or confused at any point.

I dived in not knowing what to expect and was swept back in time and completely under the spell of this charming old school times meets modern day romance and swept into a fantastic story filled with romance, emotions and suspense.I was gripped and stayed up all night reading until the wee small hours.

I adored Crow, he is a fantastic ‘old school romance hero’ with his stubbornness and teasing nature… I loved that he fell so hard for the spunky and sassy future girl… who wouldn’t be swayed by his mesmerising kisses… until she fell HARD!

I will defiantly be reading the previous books in this series because this was a fantastically well written book and who doesn’t love a great time travel romance!!
