After unwillingly leaving a comatose Nicolas behind on Mont Saint Michel in 1429, Katelyn Michaels is distraught to be back in the United States in modern times. When a series of remarkable events facilitates her taking up residence on the Mount and reveals why Katelyn was called as a Watchman, her fondest hope is to be reunited with Nicolas, regardless of the circumstances. However, when Nicolas unexpectedly arrives with a new mission for her, Katelyn is devastated to learn that his head injury has deprived him of any memories of their relationship. Nonetheless, she is determined to once again save the Mount—this time in sixteenth-century France amidst violent religious turmoil—and rekindle Nicolas’s feelings for her. The couple’s love and loyalty is tested as she and Nicolas attempt to unmask the true source of the threat¬—their adversary Abdon—sort out their conflicting emotions, and deal with the consequences of an astounding age-old secret.

My Review

I was anxiously waiting for the release of the third and unfortunately last episode of this really addictive and so well-written series. Lovable characters, amazing setting, great historical reconstructions and fascinating descriptions: it is impossible not to love this book.
Katelyn is a Watchman and must guarantee  peace and freedom of Mont Saint Michel. To do this she has the power to travel over time. During her first mission, she met Nicolas, who she had fallen in love with and he was in love with her but during the second mission she had to abandon him in coma in 1429. When she meets him again he has lost his memory and doesn't remember her. Katelyn will have to fight hard to save her new homeland and to regain her great love.
You can read it as a standalone because the author provides the basic elements of the first two books to understand the story but I recommend for  more fun to  read the series in order.
I love the style of this author, simple, slowing, engaging. The plot kept me on edge from start to finish. I was excited each time I got to turn the page. Katelyn is a great character and it was really interesting to see her grow and mature during the series, she was a fragile girl, now she is a  strong, determined and intelligent woman. Together with Nicolas they are a very sweet and romantic couple.
It's a charming, interesting, enjoyable reading with a perfect mix of action, mystery and romance.
If you love French history and stories with time travel this book will not disappoint you
