Modern-day bounty hunter Bethany Bennett helps her brother track two fugitives to a forest outside of Houston, Texas. But what should have been a routine apprehension of two bail skippers spirals out of control and ends in violence. After Beth and her brother are both seriously injured, a mysterious figure suddenly looms over her. And, when the smoke clears, Beth finds herself not only in another place, but in another time.
As Lord Robert, Earl of Fosterly, attempts to identify and track down the nameless enemy who has been plaguing his lands and people with violence, the most peculiar woman stumbles into his path. Small, vulnerable, yet possessed of a bold, fiery spirit and wicked sense of humor, she persists in dubbing Robert and his men members of something called a medieval reenactment group - until she sees his castle and labels herself mad. It seems bounty hunter Bethany Bennett has come to him from the future, bringing with her laughter and chaos, swiftly winning the hearts of his people and inspiring within him a love he thought he would never experience again. But when Robert discovers a way for her to return to her time, will the love they share be enough to keep them together?

This was a really entertaining fun book. I enjoyed it so much more than the first book in this Gifted Ones series. Loved Robert, he was amazing and real. Bethany was great too. They made a great couple, had great chemistry and a couple nicely written sex scenes. The last book was full of all sex and seemed to take over the story. This one had less and there was so much more story to it.
The story line and plot was great. I liked seeing Seth a bit more in this and reading more of Marcus' back story. The time travel portion was great. And the fact that Robert got to go the future was really good and pretty funny at times. (light switch on off on off on off) LOL
I totally recommend this book. It was really good. Fast moving, not full of filler nonsense, and there was lots of dialogue throughout the entire book. It was great.
As for the narration it was excellent. Love Kirsten Potter narrating all of Dianne Duvall's books. She does an amazing job on the men's voices. Everyone gets their own distinct voice and her reading voice is great!
i laughed outloud, i cried, i smiled, i talked t o the characters. ...this author kept me engaged in this and every story I've read by her. just delightful!
I had to really go back and think about Marcus's story and remember that he was in love with Bethany and she never knew it because he loved Robert as well and wanted to share in their life. It is funny that Marcus ends up with someone from a different planet after loving a woman from a different time. As always, excellent writing, amazing characters, clever dialogue, and an extensively talented narrator come together to make magic! If you like the people from 2 different worlds aspect, try the Fantasyland series by Kristen Ashley or Katie MacAlister's Dark Ones and Aisling Grey/Dragons series'
I have read A Sorceress Of His Own many times. It is my go to book when I want to leave the present and travel. This one will join the list of " must read it again" books. I know Marcus's and Amy's story but was curious about him and the character named Bethany. Well written story. I thought it seemlessly blended new persons into the known characters. The narrator was, as usual, outstanding.
I haven't read the printed version
Robert and Beth's chemistry was wonderful. It didn't feel forced, and didn't dance around for very long. It was a progressive build-up that felt natural.
The way she switched between Robert's and Beth's accents was smooth and only showed when the characters spoke. The rest of the time, there was not accent, so you didn't feel like she was favoring one character's thoughts over the other.
It is definitely a roman novel with some action packed moments. For someone who wants the romance but doesn't want it the only plot, this book was wonderful.
Was so happy to realize that this series precludes the Immirtal series. To have Seth show up & then Marcus, was truly a joy. I've missed this series not going on. Now I've had a touch!
I love Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians series and Gifted Ones series. In fact I have loved everything she has written and this book is no different.
The story starts with Bethany and her brother tracking fugitives near Houston, Texas. Living close to the areas she mentions made this book extra special for me. I felt as if I could go to those places and find Bethany there.
A modern day Bethany in Medieval England was frightening, shocking and often Hysterical! Lord Robert from the first book in this series is as chivalrous here as he was before. There is an almost instant attraction between Bethany and Robert, this is a romance of course.
The love grows between the two and you want them to overcome any and all obstacles. This is one of Dianne Duvall's strengths as a writer. You can see the all the reasons they should not or could not be together, that the characters see. But she has us cheering for love to conquer all.
Kirsten Potter does an awesome job of narrating as she has with both series.
Not really a spoiler, just a warning -
Do not drink anything, handle sharp objects, or be speeding down the highway when Robert helps Bethany bath in the lake.
I laughed hysterically at Robert's reactions to Bethany's 1) Bra, 2) Thong, 3) Toenail Polish, and 4) Shaved Legs... PRICELESS!!!
