"Terrific time travel romance"
Doing his cheap father a favor was the first mistake, but
Jackson Kilchurn IV delivers the papers to Gideon de Piaget of
Artane Enterprises, but not before being mugged in the
parking lot. Jake's bad day turns worse when Gideon informs
him he will need to obtain the signature of his father at
Artane. Already feeling a weird deja vu pull by the castle
and somewhat excited that he will see a jewelry vault as he
designs and creates jewelry, Jake reluctantly agrees. Near
Artane Castle, Jake has an accident.
Jake regains consciousness in a dungeon. Adjusting to his
circumstances, he persuades his hosts, the de Piagets that he
was mugged, but gets a bigger shock to learn that somehow he
was knocked out in 2005 but awakened in 1227. Meanwhile
Amanda dePiaget must select a spouse. She finds Jake whose
fashion is odd and his beliefs weirdly refreshing especially
since he seems oblivious to her wealth. Jake falls in love
with Amanda, but realizes he offers nothing to her unless he
returns to the twenty- first century to pick up his gold and
then somehow comes back to his beloved.
DREAMS OF STARDUST is a terrific time travel romance that
readers will appreciate due to the likable lead couple. The
story line insures fans will believe that Jake went back in
time because of his struggles to adjust to the era yet his
ability to accept his lot. Having the hero wearing strange
modern clothing and spouting odd social and philosophical
notions stun his hosts and excite his beloved add to the
feel that he is out of time (literally and figuratively).
Lynn Kurland provides a fine tale that proves she is a
