Publisher's Summary

Trapped in the wrong time, she needs a knight in shining armor, but this damsel in distress might be the real savior.

With a day planner attached to her hip, the last thing Katy Tolson wants is a romance that threatens her well-ordered life. She's set to marry the safe - but bland - guy, but something's not quite...right. A careless wish thrusts her through time into medieval Wales and into the arms of a knight in somewhat shining armor.

Sir Robert Beucol, half-Norman and half-Welsh, lives with the shame of his father's treason and vows to reclaim his family's holdings and thereby his honor. To prove himself to his king, he must be more Norman than a full-blooded Norman. What better way to show loyalty than to fight his mother's people? He has no desire to be sidetracked by the mysterious wench with pink toenails, peculiar habits, and passion smoldering behind her cool, collected exterior.

The Welsh uprising fits perfectly into Robert's plans. Katy's on the other hand? That's a no. As they embark on a perilous journey through the heart of Wales, each passionate encounter pulls them closer together, but farther from their goals. When everything they value is at stake, can they save each other and their love?

    "Just No."

    Wow, I really don't know where to begin with this review. This story was a real struggle to get through. The language barrier between the two was just not realistic. The chemistry between Katy and Robert was forced and did not feel genuine at all. The entire story suffered drastically and it was very hard to enjoy. I thought with an hour left the story was going to get better. No. This was not the case. It did not get better it actually got more ridiculous.

    The storyline and plot was just not very good and I think the year 1294 was a bit too far back to go. This book was nothing like the previous book at all. I cannot recommend it.

    As for the narration, Mary Jane Wells did a very good job considering what she had to work with. She gave all the characters their own distinct voice and read with the motion, she also has a very nice reading voice. So, I do recommend the narrator.

    Story
    "Same premise as Outlander, shorter, less complex"

    This is a regular one book historical romance set in late 13th century Wales. Book has same basic premise as Outlander in that a modern woman finds herself accidently transported back in time. That is where the similarities end however.

    I enjoyed this book. The heroine of the story was neither TSTL or a raving bitch - such a breath of fresh air. The story was fast-moving and kept my attention.

    The narrator did a GREAT job (to my American ears) with the different characters and the multiple accents required for each... British, American, French and Welsh. Having been an American on vacation in Wales [me attempting to read a map aloud ... may I PLEASE buy a handful of vowels!], I was especially impressed with her pronunciation of all the Welsh words and place names.

    The romance was very sweet and I like both the hero and the heroine.

    Story
    "Time-traveling into Medieval Time"

    Must Love Chainmail is a better than Must Love Breeches. I didn't really like some of the elements in Must Love Breeches but Must Love Chainmail makes more sense from the beginning to the end of the story.

    Katy Tolson is a control freak since the day her father walked out on her eighth birthday. Since then Katy has a checklist of what she must accomplish in her life. Even her engagement is so bland and basically, really vanilla. When she made a wish of whether she is happy, she is tossed back into the medieval time.

    Sir Robert Beucol, a Norman knight, lived for the moment of never knowing what tomorrow might bring him. Rescuing a mysterious wench (Katy) during a Welsh invasion was not something he planned for. He has a plan of reclaiming his family holding and regaining his family honor lost by his father's treason.

    As Robert and Katy embarked on their journey to locate Katy's silver card case and Robert's mission to protect the Norman refugees, both learned more about themselves from each other. Robert understood Katy more than anyone who has known Katy. Katy taught Robert that he has to lived for himself instead of for other people and trying to please them.

    Must Love Chainmail has time travel to the medieval age correctly. Most stories have the characters understanding each other. This story shows that back in the Medieval ages, the common language is Norman-French and not English. Unless the characters from present time know French and a bit of Latin, communication would be difficult.

    I love Robert ad Katy. Katy might be a little difficult to warm up to at the beginning of the story, but then again, she is a control freak who plan everything for the future. Robert is a flawed character but readers/listeners will love him. He tried to be cold and withdrawn but Robert's honorable character captured the true sense of what a knight should be. I love of how these two characters bring out the best of each other.

    I also love that the author kept the story without the thee's and the thou's and used modern English. The author is right that the readers/listeners would be so irritated with them. I can't imagine myself listening to the thee's and thou's after an hour. I would be cringing.

    The narrator, Mary Jane Wells does a wonderful performance. I just love, love the voice, the narrator gave to Robert.

    I was given this audiobook by the author and have decided to write a review for the audiobook voluntary. I was not influenced or compensated for writing this review.

    "Just OK for me.."

    Wow! I loved Must Love Breeches, even gave it 5 stars. But this one? I could hardly get into it. I was at 43% and it’s taken me from the 2nd to the 10th to get here. I’ve stopped and read about 10 or more books since I started this one. They’ve just now gotten to where they can communicate, somewhat, and the time they spent in hiding while he took care of her arrow wound was so boring. Things seemed to move along so slowly I found myself skimming. BUT, I finished it.

    In all honesty I really disliked the book until the last 25%, maybe less, when Katy/Kaytee saved Robert and brought him back to her time. Up until that point I thought I’d never finish this book.

    However, since I loved Must Love Breeches so much I still mean to read the next book in the series, Must Love Kilts.

    The fact there was so little sexual tension or desire made it worse. At least until the second half of the book. There still wasn’t any sexual tension to speak of but there was plenty of sex, 3 or 4 times with explicitly told details, and a little bit of masturbation earlier on. The F-bomb was used 4 times.

    As for the narration: Mostly fabulous. Love, love, loved the French accent she gave to Robert. It didn’t seem that Katy spoke all that through the whole book but the voice she had was kind of childish so I was glad she didn’t talk all the time. Mary Jane Wells reads with great emotion.

    "Another fantastic listen!"

    Please note that I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book.

    I loved this book! First, let me say that it ticked a lot of book "catnip" boxes for me. Time travel...check. Medieval British Isles...check. A strong, but not alpha-hole hero...check!

    Unlike many time travel romances from previous decades, the hero was not an uber-powerful jerk. I really liked that Robert was strong, and felt like he was from the time period, but still struggled with the unethical behavior of many of the Anglo-Normans in Wales. I also appreciated the fact that he was bi-cultural and had to sort out how to deal with this conflict.

    I also liked the heroine quite a bit. In the beginning I was a bit skeptical that she would grow on me, but she did. After time traveling she faces many travails, but these seemed authentic and we're not disturbing or triggering to me.

    The chemistry between the two main characters was wonderful. It was a bit of a slow burn in the beginning, but it heated up towards the middle. Their love scenes were both tender and hot.

    Mary Jane Wells did a fantastic job with this one! Her American accents were not my favorite, but I completely forgive her because her French and Welsh accents were superb (to my ears). Her voice has a very soothing and lyrical quality and I always enjoy listening to her.

    Story
    "Amazing Time-Travel Novel During Welsh Rebellion"
    Any additional comments?

    Must Love Chainmail is another outstanding time-travel romance by Angela Quarles. It is the second book in the “Must Love” series and more adventurous than the first book in the series, Must Love Breeches. Rather than being transported back in time to the Regency era like the last story, this time our heroine is taken back to the 13th Century and straight into the middle of a battle during the Welsh rebellion.

    The story begins in present day and revolves around Katy, who is addicted to her cell phone and all things data. She is only a few weeks away from getting married to a mediocre guy and she travels to Wales with her bridesmaids for a "girls week-end" of rest and relaxation before the big day. Just as she begins to have doubts about getting married, she innocently makes a wish (while holding the same silver card case used in the first book to time-travel), and Katy is sent back 700 years into the arms of a knight in chainmail.

    Sir Robert is definitely a worthy hero who is half-Norman and half-Welsh. He's a man of the utmost honor and integrity who doesn't hesitate to stop the rape of an innocent girl by one of his fellow Norman knights. Unfortunately, the other knight hates Robert and fabricates a lie to get Robert convicted of treason. Thankfully, our heroine must have watched the Prisoner of Azkaban because she "knew" she could save him from the hangman's noose.

    The detailed descriptions in this book were so vivid that I could smell and taste the filth of that time period. It also portrayed how challenging life would have been in the midst of a rebellion, and especially the hurdles and unrealistic expectations of someone like Robert, who was of mixed-race during medieval times.

    I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Mary Jane Wells, who is simply amazing! She narrates as if there are several different actors being used, and has a spunk and lightheartedness that many narrators lack. She also portrayed Robert with smooth undertones and made him truly swoon-worthy! Simply put, I can't wait for the next Angela Quarles book narrated by Mary Jane Wells!!

    "Love the reader but not this book as much as bk 3"

    The young women are too fast talking and uptight but the men are swoon worthy. However, I didn't like this one near as much as book 1 Breeches or LOVED book 3 Kilts.

    Can't wait for MORE Kilts and hopefully more from this fun author. I sped threw this series in a few days.

    "Vividly-written, well-plotted time travel romance!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It is the well-deserved 2016 RITA winner in the paranormal category. The initial premise is similar to that of Outlander – whereas a modern day woman finds herself transported into the past as Katy Tolson is transported to Wales in 1294 during the Welsh rebellion with Norman knight Sir Robert Beaucol..It is vividly-written, well-plotted, fast-paced and adventurous. It mesmerized me from the first to the last and I believe it would captivate a friend too so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. There are twists and turns in the story that took me completely by surprise. I wanted to listen to it without stopping and didn’t want it to end. Months after finishing this audio, I still get the warm fuzzies when I think about it. The audio is nothing short of enthralling. I would listen to it again – it was that awesome.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I LOVED it all! The story was outstanding. The narration was superb.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    One of my favorite scenes involved the heroine’s wandering pinkie. This is a short excerpt from that scene. LOL! This is not the end of her pinkie’s escapades. In other extremely humorous scenes afterward, her pinkie remains a player...:
    Her pinkie took matters into its own, er, pinkie, and moved oh-so-slightly, grazing his skin. His pinkie, judging by the shape and texture.
    Blood rushed and pounded through her veins, flushing her skin. This could not, in any way, be explained as an accidental touch. But he could feign sleep if he wasn’t interested. Did she want him to do that?
    What was she doing?
    She commanded her pinkie to drop, and thankfully, it obeyed.
    A jolt shot through her as his finger made a query, and the need clarified. The need represented her desire for some measure of control. Control over her general situation. Control over her attraction. She answered with a gentle finger stroke along his calloused, warm skin.
    A sharp breath pierced the dark air.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Mary Jane Wells returns as the narrator for Must Love Chainmail. She positively nails the performance. Her voice is crystal clear and to my American ears, she aces the multiple dialects (British, French, Welsh, American) required. Both her male and female voices sound realistic and she exudes the proper emotions. She consistently differentiates between the characters and delivers a polished production. I laughed, held my breath, gasped and melted to a puddle while listening to this audio. I can unequivocally state that my enjoyment of this book was enhanced by her performance.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though this is the second book in the series, Must Love Chainmail works well as a standalone if that is your preference even though there is an interconnectiveness with the first book. That said, the first book is just as wonderful as this one. Must Love Breeches occurs in the Regency time period whereas Must Love Chainmail occurs in the Medieval. They're both GREAT!

    "Ahh to Love"

    The narration was great. love the accent and to be able to pronounce all those Welsh and French words, I never would have done the read justice without the audio. The story is captivating and I just couldn't put it down.

    "My favorite time travel romance ever!"

    First, I must praise the narrator Mary Jane Wells. Her flowing, beautifully musical voice demonstrated excellent pacing, versatility on male and female parts with multiple accents, and excellent emotive expression. I love her educated English accent during her non-speaking parts. She also made the hero Robert's voice sound just as sexy as the character should be.
    Absolutely fun and wonderful time travel romance! When I was listening to it, I did not want to leave the car when I parked. That is the testament of an excellent audiobook. No wonder the original book won a RITA award! It has all three primary aspects of an excellent audiobook: a captivating story, a talented narrator who can do multiple characters very well, and a voice that is pleasing to the ear.
    The realistic details of a modern woman's situation when she was sent back in time to 1294 Wales really set this apart from the typical low quality time travel romance. Also, I like it a lot better than Diana Gabaldon's time travel romance because this one has a sense of humor and not too much politics. There is also wonderfully taut suspense in the non-stop dangerous situations for our heroine Katie. I really related to Katie and to her medieval knight Robert. Character development is superb. Katie is nicely resourceful and able to solve problems; she is not a wilting violet. The linguistic problems are realistically handled, and Katie has a good sense of humor, too. The dangers that Katie and Robert face and their slowly developing relationship kept me enthralled. I like how Katie and Robert do not immediately jump into bed together. They took it somewhat slowly. I love this audiobook so much that I am absolutely going to get Book 1 in the series, "Must Love Breeches". I was quite pleased by "Must Love Chainmail". In fact, it is my favorite time travel romance that I have ever read. If you want a high quality time travel romance that still has a little humor, get this one!
    I received a free copy from the author, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
