The Last MacKlenna: The Celtic Brooch, Book 2 (Unabridged)
If you've wondered how the inscriptions got on the gems used in the Celtic brooches, check out this video. The studio is featured on the book's cover. The book is now in the window along with paintings and sculptures. As a romance novel, I expected there to be sex scenes.
Yes there were, and yes, they were detailed enough to make the book inappropriate for younger readers. I only had an issue with the scene where Kit loses her virginity.
I even handed the book to a friend and asked her to read that scene without telling her why. The expressions on her face told me that she found it as poorly done as I did. Oddly, this was the only sex scene that I had an issue with. The others were all very well done. And yes, there were a good number of other sex scenes in the book. It was a romance novel, after all. Over all, I enjoyed this book for both the time travel and the romance aspects of the story.
Would I be willing to read other books by this author? Yes, especially if they are as well researched and written as this one. I seldom leave reviews but I had to for this one. This could've been a good book but like others have said, the amount of stuff she took back with her don't even start me on how in the world they are charging the I-pad is ridiculous. The writing was so choppy and the abrupt changes made me crazy.
And the lack of background information was unreal. I did make it all of the way through because I'm one of those eternal optimists, it has to get better right? I don't know if I can bring myself to buy book 2 and it saddens me because I love series reading.
The Emerald Brooch : Katherine Lowry Logan :
I'll rest on it for awhile before I make my decision. I really enjoyed this novel and the way the author wove the plot in and out of time, where the heroine and her family planned their lives around a special time travel enabling Ruby Brooch, was really interesting and rang differently from other time travel romances. I liked, too, that the heroine had unprotected sex and then got pregnant, which is what happens. I like my reality and fantasy mixed and this novel gave me heaps of interesting Oregon Trail detail as well as a delightful and satisfying romance.
Can't wait to read the others. A captivating love story of time travel from 's to A fascinating weaving of the two times into a good story. Life in the Oregon Trail is tough but even more so for one from the 21st century. Could I survive? Allez sur Amazon. Commentaires Besoin d'aide?
