THE PRESENT

Successful matchmaker Brianagh O’Rourke believes in happily-ever-afters...just not her own. She’s convinced passion only exists in her dreams. When she reluctantly accepts a marriage proposal, Bri decides she needs a vacation―but she didn't expect it to be in 13th century Ireland.

THE PAST

Laird Nioclas MacWilliam just wants peace for his clan. The time for him to marry has come, and after waiting years for his ally to present their daughter, he’s agreed to marry another. But on the eve of his nuptials, a daring rescue brings his missing betrothed right into his arms.

And she does not want to be there.

THE FUTURE

Brianagh has to return to the future. Nioclas has to marry. He offers a solution for the both of them: She marries him and stays for three months, and they work together to convince his clan they are a love match. In return, he vows to safely return her home. But as the days turn to weeks, they both begin to see what a happily-ever-after could be. And when the time comes, does Brianagh return to the life she’s built, or does she remain in the past for a chance at true love?


My Review

It 's a compelling novel, funny, sentimental with a touch of humor and suspense, set in the beautiful medieval Ireland and with awesome characters.
Brianagh believes in true love only thinks that is not predicted for her. She meets her ideal man every night in her dreams. She accepts the marriage proposal of her old boyfriend, even though she knows that he is not the right one. Before the wedding,  allows herself a little vacation in her homeland, Ireland and suddenly finds herself living in medieval age and betrothed to the man she meets in her dreams. He is Nioclas, Laird of a clan, wants to marry her to bring peace to his country. But she does not want to be there and does not want to marry him. They make a pact: he needs marriage to appease his clan, if she agrees to marry him and stay with him until three months, he will help her to come home safe and sound. She discovers that married life is wonderful with Nioclas,she can stay there forever?
Brianagh is a really strong and determined character, I loved every moment spent with her. Nioclas is really the ideal guy: is brave, loyal, faithful, charming. Together they form a amazing couple, attraction and chemistry between them is really explosive. I like so much the stories with time travel, this one is really funny: to get used to the medieval life is not really simple.
It 's a romantic and passionate story but without scenes too much hot. There are several twists that glue the reader to the pages to see what will happen to our characters.
This book is so well written and well structured, studied in detail that does not seem to a debut writer. Great start to this series, I look forward to reading the second book.
If you love time travel novels, the Middle Ages, Ireland and the romance is the perfect book for you.
