"1260 England chauvinist but chivalrous knight meets 1999 USA woman"

THE MORE I SEE YOU by Lynn Kurland is a wonderful Time Travel Romance. Jessica Blakely is a composer in 1999. A blind date leads her to take a trip to England where she's unhappy because she hasn't yet met the man she'll love. So she takes a walk in her host's garden and makes a wish on a star. Because she's in England she wishes for a fair and gallant knight, one with lots of chivalry, a steady job, even temper, has a home large enough for a grand piano, and she'd like for him to love her at least as much as he loves himself. Then a mist rolls in and Poof! She's in 1260 England and there are hounds headed towards her. She is rescued by Richard De Galtres.

Richard is the kind of hero that I love. A wounded warrior, and tortured hero. He was abused by his cruel father, ran away from home at the age of 12 and ended up being fostered by Robin de Piaget. He doesn't know how to smile or love. People fear him and his only friend is Kendrick de Piaget. He is most definitely a chauvinist, but he is also chivalrous. He hates the chivalry taught to him by Robin that causes him to help Jessica because he just wants to live his own life and be left alone.

Its truly a great story. I loved watching Jessica teach Richard to love. I really like books like this. The hero barks his orders and everyone rushes to do his bidding. Then along comes the heroine and she sees past all the gruff stuff to the good, caring and lonely man inside. She just simply loves him and that totally knocks him off balance because no one has ever loved him before. Some of the scenes made me laugh so hard that I cried.

This is really a great read. I absolutely loved it. I've enjoyed all of Ms. Kurland's books and I love how her characters intertwine. The More I See You is no exception. You get to revisit characters from her other books. I personally think it takes a great talent to intertwine stories like she does and still each book can definitely stand alone.

A wish upon a star transports the luckless-in-love Jessica Blakely back in time to the thirteenth century. But her desire for a fair and gallant knight yields the fearsome Richard De Galtres. Though wary of Jessica's mysterious ways, Richard protectively harbors her in his castle by the sea. Though her stubborn will nearly drives him mad, the very sight of her puts a smile on a face that has known too few. And when Jessica's tender desire pierces the armor around his heart, Richard fears he may never be able to recover -- or resist....
