Publisher's Summary

A vacation on a tropical island should be blissful paradise. It turns out to be something else altogether for Paul Dewitt. A storm erupts and throws his entire life into chaos. He wakes up to a beautiful stranger and a different time.

Lady Evelyn Beckett is sailing to England to marry her betrothed. When a storm hits, she is tossed overboard. By sheer will, and a little luck, she makes it to shore. She finds a handsome man wandering the beach, and he's both confusing and odd.

Together Paul and Evelyn rely on each other to survive the raging storm, villainous pirates, and a little bit of culture shock. Can they get past each other’s differences and learn to trust each other and find love?

    "Saved by Blackguard"

    This was a very good short story. I wished it had been longer. I will watch for author Dawn Brower's other short story. The narrator was good. A female narrator my bring the story a little more life. You can't lose with this one. This book was given to me for an honest review. If I had purchased the book, my review would have been the same word for word.

    "Time travel love story"

    I love time travel stories and this one doesn't disappoint. This is the story of Paul and Evelyn. Paul is an over worked CEO who is in need of some time of and Evelyn is needs rescuing from a pirate named captan Jack. I loved Captain Jack as well and thought his character was perfect for this story. This book has everything I like In a book, time travel, humor and of course romance. Dawn Brower is a great romance author and I always enjoy her books

    "Somewhat disappointing narrator and story."

       I received a free copy of the audiobook from the author in return for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
       This is the first story by Dawn Brower that I have read or listened to.  I really like time travel romances, and the description sounded good, so I gave this short audiobook a try.  Other readers might disagree, but I found the writing to be somewhat awkward and boring.  It felt like this was the first story written by a debut author and had inadequate editing.  The novella had its good points and bad points.  At first, the hero sounded really boring and unlikeable, but he got more interesting and likeable after the time travel occurred.  The heroine was fairly interesting and fairly likeable throughout, but she seemed to have some bad judgement to admire a pirate whom she knew ordered the deaths of at least 15 people.  The plot was rather good and inventive for a time travel romance, but it got bogged down sometimes with awkward, boring dialogue.  In addition, the single love scene was rather bland and deficient in intimacy.  One example of awkward phrasing was calling a 3-foot high ledge on the edge of a natural pool a "cliff"!  It is not a cliff.  Also, the epilogue was overly long with too many unnecessary details.  I think that epilogues should be no more than 4 pages, not the 10 pages that I estimate this one to be.
       The narration was rather disappointing, too.  The amateur-sounding narrator Ed Wolfe made the story sound even worse than it actually was.  At first, the narrator's voice sounded pleasing, but then I noticed a faint echo in the sound quality.  Also, he tended to trail off during the last few syllables of many sentences instead of delivering them crisply.  The voice was slightly monotonous and not vivacious enough.  I have listened to dozens of audiobooks, and it seemed to me that he was just reading the novella, not bringing it to life.
       Another thing that I found to be annoying was that in this 2.5-hour audiobook, about 25 minutes was a sample of the next book.  That is too long of a sample, in my opinion.  Adding to that, the sample was really boring (and had the same mediocre narration), and it convinced me that I did not want to read or listen to the rest of that book #2.
       I hope that this review helps people in their purchasing decision.  I recommend listening to the whole sample, not just 30 seconds of it.

    What a lovely time traveling story. The storyline and mist of the characters were just so well described. My favorite though would have to be the notorious Captain Jack, hope to read more about him . This story had me laughing at times and had many awwww moments. Great read ! Five stars!!

    "Thrown back to paradise"

    Quick romance story for a great afternoon listen. This story is full of adventure and pirates. Two lovers from a different time are brought together by a crazy storm. Each has a life already planned out, but neither knows what they are missing until they collide together. I can't wait to see what has happened to the Pirate Captain! Great story!
