Series: Blooming

On the rebound from a relationship that left her with a bad taste in her mouth and a worse self-image, Regina dumps Boston for a vacation to England, where a tour of the Tower of London leads her to places she couldn’t have imagined—literally. As she tours the White Tower, she is stalked by a weirdo in an medieval warrior’s outfit she thinks is a tour guide—until she ends up at the end of his leash and tied up in the Tower during medieval times.

This is a great story that seamlessly blends time travel, humor, and steamy erotic BDSM play as Regina, a hip 21 st-century woman, meets Bertram, who really IS a medieval warrior cursed to remain always within the Tower—although he can travel between time periods. The interplay of modern slang and medieval warrior-speak (well, at least it sounds like medieval warrior-speak) is alone worth the price of admission.

A truly fun read, with a likeable heroine who grows throughout the story to finally admit what she needs in a relationship, and a sexy hero who knows what he wants and will travel centuries to find it.

With a temper to match her flaming hair, an argumentative streak a mile wide, and a curvy full-figured shape, Regina is a vavavoom sexpot.
A lot of good it does her with men.
Her 36-Ds intimidate nice guys and draw creeps out of the woodwork. Frustrated and hurting after a recent breakup with her apathetic boyfriend, she decides to shake up her boring life by vacationing solo in Europe.
First stop: the Tower of London.
She’s minding her own business, doing the sightseeing routine at the tourist trap, when she’s stalked, then captured by some twisted weirdo who actually thinks he’s a medieval warrior from Norman times. After introducing himself as Lord Raven, he drags her to his castle bedchamber, where he strips her naked and ties her up like a rump roast. And he’s acting starved. Then, he starts talking trash, something about making her his mate.
His mate! This, to a feminist! What will her girls back home think?
Just her friggin’ luck, the kinky abduction scenario really does it for her, and she falls for him hard. Until--he starts spouting a whole lot of crap about Time Travel.
As soon as she unlocks her lips from his, she’s so outta there.
