Summary

A time to live. A time to die. A time to dream.

Sleep disorders specialist Kennedy Plain has been diagnosed with a fatal brain tumor. When her research subject dies after trying to convince her he has achieved dream-induced time travel and her study is shelved, she enlists herself as a subject to complete her research.

But when she dreams herself into 14th-century England and falls into the hands of Fulke Wynland, a man history has condemned as a murderer, she must not only stay alive long enough to find a way to return to her own time, but prevent Fulke from murdering his young nephews. And yet, the more time she spends with the medieval warrior, the more difficult it is to believe he is capable of committing the heinous crime for which he has been reviled for 600 years.

Baron Fulke Wynland has been granted guardianship of his brother's heirs despite suspicions that he seeks to steal their inheritance. When the king sends a mysterious woman to care for the boys, Fulke is surprised by the lady's hostility toward him - and more surprised to learn she is to be his wife. But when his nephews are abducted, the two must overcome their mutual dislike to discover the boys' fate.

What Fulke never expects is to feel for this woman whose peculiar speech, behavior, and talk of dream travel could see her burned as a witch.

Enjoyed it eventually

Not sure if I would finish this book. I didn't like the narrator. She hardly distinguishes one voice from another, so I couldn't tell who is saying what. Also Kennedy was very annoying in the beginning, because although she sounded like an intelligent women she didn't t act like one. She knows she is in the year 1373 and she doesn't try and hide it at all that she's from another century. She acts like a stupid spoilt brat. Not knowing what a fortnight is or a wet nurse. Or asking for underwear. Doesn't she know anything at all about how it was in those days. Didnt think I could take her anymore. Also the story is really complicated so far, Kennedy was right to say that it's like trying to figure out a rubics cube.
But it got much better as I read on.
I did finish it and enjoyed it very very much. It was a lovely love story. will probably read it again.

Not enough about God compared her other books

wasn't enough about God compared to her other books and was slightly too graphic , not enough left to imagination. lots of crude references too, which are slightly over the top and out of place in a Christian romance

Dream spell

I really enjoyed this book. I have enjoyed all the books by Tamara Leigh. She is a gifted writer and Mary's narration is brilliant as always.

Left me in a Dreamspell

Not sure how I missed this one. It's been in my library for a while but never listened to it. Wow, I'm glad I found it.

Tamara Leigh has a gift of writing stories that come alive. Vivid characters and situations seem to paint pictures in your mind that seem real. Mary Sarah Agliotta has such a unique voice that adds dimension to the story. A duo that is difficult to duplicate.

This book has time travel, medieval adventures, touching moments and a clean romance. It's definitely worth the listen. 🌼

IT CAST IT'S MAGICAL SPELL OVER ME

I love fantasy and romance but it took me a little while to get into this story however, once I did I was totally hooked....

Hooked on the well-written, imaginative and original plot that seamlessly transports you backwards and forwards between the 21st and 14th Centuries with ease. Hooked at the fast-paced action and dialogue which held witty gems and funny scenes. Hooked at the emotions it brought out in me as a dying Nedy is given another chance at life in the arms of her Knight in the ever changing past. Hooked with Fulke, a Hero that wasn't handsome or perfect but rather he was a Knight that was scarred both inside and out but he was honourable, morally good, loyal, loving and he had character which made him just perfect.

And finally, I was hooked with the romance that slowly developed between two people that started off as enemies but eventually, through many disasters, grew into one of trust and a deep love and respect for each other that encompassed 600 years. One that led to an Epilogue that perfectly concluded their love story and ended a book that was packed full of questions, dilemmas, twists, action, heartbreak, tension, great characters, a mysterious villain, tragedy and a bitter-sweet romance.

Worth a credit? It played out in my mind like a film and what a great film it would be.... so YES it's creditworthy. Narration was good. There was touching, tender scenes with kissing but absolutely no sex.

Oh this is a GOOD one!

What did you like best about this story?

I like the way dreams take Kennedy into the past. This is a well written story.

The way Mac dies in our time and ends up in the past. I love Kennedy's mom - what a wonderful person. I like the way each time Kennedy leaves the past she changes history.

I cried so hard at the end. It was a real tear jerker with a happy ending. I have listened to this story more than once.....I cry like a baby each time at the end. Kennedy's mom is awesome.

Have you listened to any of Mary Sarah Agliotta’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love the way Mary portrays Kennedy's mom. The rest of the characters have great accents. Nice job!

wonderful!

after reading the description this sounded a lot like a Knight in Shining Armor by June Devereaux which my grandmother and myself LOVE! So I thought I'd give this a try and it's like a Knight in Shining Armor meets the movie Timeline, absolutely wonderful! I love it! now I'm going to force my grandmother to read or listen to it. if you like the book or movie I mentioned above you'll like this!

Interesting and unexpected

At times I was disappointed with this story. It did not have a strong or even remote Christian moral, but it was clean.
The plot keeps you going after you get pass mid to near then but the whole time I was frustrated. It was a good read with a good ending in the end.

My Favorite

I have read (and listened) to almost all of Tamara Leigh's books. This is my favorite. The story is so touching it will make you cry... as long as you don't get caught up in the scientific possibility of time travel. Wonderful narration as well. Love, love, love it!

Wonderful!

It was one of the best time travel books I’ve ever listened to. Creative with unexpected occurrences. The narrator is fantastic, with a strong voice and clear character separation. I recommend this book but beware you might start and finish it in the same day.
