Book Review- LORD OF BLAKELEY: Time After Time-Carol Ann Kauffman

Tuesday, May 23, 2017


I loved Blue Lake-another in the Time After Time series (read my review here) so much that I decided to read another one!

These two soul mates keep getting separated--but have no fear--they ultimately find each other again. It will take you from an alien planet--to various other planets--to earth and back again. There is a definite villain in this one who is bound and determined to keep these two apart. He really does try!! But true soul mates can never be separated.

This one will keep you on your toes trying to figure out how this will ultimately end. If you are a romantic (which I definitely am)--well-- all I can say is you will get swept away and love every minute of it!!


About the Book: (from Amazon)

The series, TIME AFTER TIME, follows a pair of quintessential lovers, Richard and Nicole, through their lives together, in different places, in different times, with different names and faces and sometimes even on other planets. This follows the alternative theory that the relationships we forge in this lifetime, both the good and the bad, are continued into the future, and are rooted deeply in our past. Whatever we do, whomever we love, and the good and evil deeds we do today follow us into the future. Unsettled issues will present themselves again and again, until they are ultimately resolved. Those people who have had a profound effect on us in this lifetime will find us again in the future. And although everything changes, love remains.

Books in the TIME AFTER TIME series are: BLUE LAKE, BELTERRA,
The BASLICATO, BENTLEY SQUARE, WAITING FOR RICHARD, and LORD OF BLAKELEY. They do not need to be read in order.

Lord of Blakeley is the story of Andrew of Blakeley, a simple farm boy who lives on a primitive future planet. He is chosen by the lovely Lady Aleese to be her mate and rises to become the most powerful man on the planet. But a jealous man with access to mobile transport devices wreaks havoc on the young couple’s happiness, separating them, her on an alien rock planet and he, aboard a slave ship, and then dumping them in present-day Chicago. One day Aleese vanishes into thin air and Andrew is arrested for her murder and must stand trial. It is a story of devotion and jealousy, of loss and lunacy. And, in true Time After Time fashion, a story of love.

Book Review-Harbor in the Storm (The Greek Isles Series Book 6)-Angel Sefer

Monday, May 22, 2017


I was so happy to see Harbor in the Storm get published. It is the 6th in this series and I feel like I have been waiting forever!! I have read and reviewed all the others in this series and have never been disappointed! The word imagery that describes the Greek Isles is superb--you will feel like you are there (and certainly makes me want to go there)! Each in this series can be read as a stand alone with no problem. Now I am sitting here hoping that Angel Sefer continues with this marvelous series!!!

The story lines in each and every one combines mystery with clean romance. Harbor in the Storm will make you grit your teeth or cry for Natalie as she discovers that her entire married life has been a sham. She had left her one true love when a woman told her that he was dating someone else before she met and married her husband--lie. When Daniel and she meet up by pure coincidence at the Atlanta airport is when things start heating up.

Daniel is still in love with Natalie and decides to help her when she learns her husband has been kidnapped. They travel to the place Natalie spent the majority of her childhood-the Greek island of Skiathos. What they find out will astound you. There is also a couple of things from Daniel's life that Natalie has no idea about. Will he finally tell her.

I really want everyone to read every book in this series!!
