Summary

Sixty-eight seconds.

Can a life be lived in sixty-eight seconds? Can the love of a lifetime be discovered and lost in just a minute?

Mikah Bauer stepped into the street in front of the Glasgow Museum of Modern Art and found herself lost in a nightmare that became a dream come true when Ian Conagham, the Marquis of Ayr, appeared before her. Mikah found herself living another life, a fairy tale of love and passion such as she never imagined. Then came the nightmare that tore it all away as quickly as fate had handed it to her.

Contains mature themes.

what a twist

I really could not understand how this story could be about time travel, then right at the end what a twist it all made sense. great narrative and a good story with lots of twists and turns.

Lovely book, so much to this story .

I felt every emotion listening to this book. The narrator was great. The story line was beautiful, heartbreaking, the passion was believable and even the HEA had a twist. I felt so emotional after listening to this it was worth the time and and credit.

LOVED the last quarter of this book...

Narration: Kirsten Potter is one of my favorite historical romance narrators. I love how she does the accents, her male voices are on point and she makes stories more interesting.

Story: I really like Angeline Fortin and the last 25% of this story shows the passion, excitement and action I look forward to when I read/listen to her books. This story felt a bit long and about half way in it was getting boring. But I am soooo glad I finished it because that last quarter of the book Makes everything make sense and so exciting. This is a past life/reincarnation/Dejavu story of a love that survives death, travels time and countries, a love for ever and always. Beautiful!!

A love story to fall in love with

Usually reading time travel stories saddens me deeply. Leaving people one loves behind and moving on was always the part that weighed my heart down but not so here. AF does a fabulous job keeping the story upbeat and happy. Time travel is like believing in Santa Clause. You know it's not real and yet that does not reduce the ache of longing for it to be real. I absolutely adored this book

Awesome story by an awesome narrator..

I read this book the first time in 2013, and I loved it then. I listened to it over the past couple of day and loved it again. I had forgotten that there were 2 people inside the same body, Mikah and Hero, not trying to see who the predominate one was but to live harmoniously until Mikah could figure out what was going on. How could Mikah know absolutely everything about Hero’s castle when she was from the 21st century and this was now 1856? Not to mention she’s met the man she’s been dreaming about most of her life.

Sometimes I mention in a review that it seemed everyone was naked because the author never gave her character clothes. In this book Ms. Fortin has described every bit of clothing and everything about every single room imaginable. It was a little much for me but I know a lot of you like all that description. There are pages and pages of it. It was annoying to me but not so much that it took away from the story. It’s simply information that might be helpful to those who love descriptions and a warning to those who don’t like so much of it.

I did like Mikah/Hero and Ian/Jace but I had forgotten about what happened at the end of part 2. I really, really hated that part. BUT it ended up being a perfect, perfect time travel novel. Yeah, I cried and it was worth every single tear.

Besides hating Daphne (and I certainly wasn’t surprised that she was one of the bad guys) I absolutely loved the Duke of Beaumont, Hero's father. With his touch of Alzheimer’s the author gave him the funniest and most loving lines in the book. His interruptions of Hero and Ian was just hilarious.

There was several love scenes, explicit love scenes. There were a few of the usual small swearwords and the F-bomb was dropped 5 times.

As to the narration: I love, love, love Kirsten Potter. She does everything right!

My heart is in the Highlands too!

The author of this book delivered a clever time-travel romance adventure with a few twists. This unique book actually weaves 4 lives into one romance….strange but true. There was just enough romance, intrigue, and mystery to keep me captivated.

Not sure if this book is in a series but if it isn't that's disappointing. If you like thought provoking time-travel romances with great narration don't hesitate on this one. ;-).

a different kind of time travel

this book was presented differently than most time travel books and I found it very refreshing and could not figure out how it was going to have a happy ending.

Didn’t keep my interest

I have been listening to audio books while driving for over 10 years. I have only returned one book. But this is book number 2. It just wouldn’t keep my interest. Hopefully it may be to ur liking but unfortunately is not to mine.

So good! I didn't want it to end.

I got myself completely lost in the story and was not ready for it to come to a conclusion. Thank you for creating such a wonderful world and inviting us in.
