Delightful!

I enjoyed slipping back in time to the cat and mouse of old fashioned romance. I think I'm in love with Jack too. I pictured this story on TV like Jane Austin's books to movie script!

Pirate Story and Time Travel Romance!

This is the sixth book in the Linked Across Time, a time travel romance/historical romance/pirate story. The storyline is original, fun, and captivating. Duchess DeFoix did a great job with the narration. Her voice fits perfectly the story. I enjoyed it!

Fun Pirate Time Travel

I enjoyed this listen very much. It is a unique concept of a time traveling pirate set in historical times. The cat and mouse game they played was fun. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Okay

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own. This is a regency romance with a time travel element [which is a very minor part of the story]. I have not read any of this author's previous works - but from reading some of the reviews, I got the sense that some of these characters come from other stories. Perhaps if I had read those other stories, I would have enjoyed this one more. I found the story full of information dumps [which are likely the stories from her previous works] - where characters spend a lot of time recounting events. The mother of MC Lady Elizabeth is from the 20th Century - and she uses terms/language from that time period, even though she now lives hundreds of years in the past - I found this a bit jarring and odd that everyone understood her given that would not be the language of the time. The narrator, Duchess DeFoix, did a nice job and her voice is enjoyable to listen to.

Great read and listen..

So, this was about Jack, a pirate, who went forward in time BUT only from the 18th century to the 19th century. AND having seen Jack in a mirror when she was 12 years old Elizabeth knew she had been waiting for him all those years. She just had to convince Jack but Jack wasn’t listening because he thought they were related. It was quite funny until Jack talked to Alys, Elizabeth’s mother who dropped into the 19th century from the 21st. After Jack and Alys’s talk everything was alright with Jack to pursue Elizabeth. So, Alys went over a cliff. And so did Eve. Callista went over a balcony, Jack was lost in a storm, Regina showed up at the Weston Estate to look for her sister Alys and ran into her ex-husband who was looking for the love of his life, who also disappeared. And on and on it goes. Now, Jack and Elizabeth are married and she and Jack are standing in front of a mirror and she touches it and her hand goes right through it. Now I’m off to read the story I’ve been looking forward to: The story Trenton and Eve. AND it'll probably have something to do with a mirror, or one of the stories will, anyway. There was somewhat explicit sex in this story and the F-bomb was not used in this one. As to the narration: Duchess DeFoix was a little over dramatic in parts but her men sounded like men and that’s what’s important.

Touching, exciting read LOVED IT

What it would have been like to hear a beloved story of a tale from your mother only to find out it isn’t a tale but a true story. To one day look in the mirror and see that handsome devil the story is based on, even better to find time tavel has you meet and fall in love with the handsome devil. This is a wonderful story that just reaches in to your soul grabbing your attention and making you fall in love with a pirate out of his own time twisted into another time making a wonderful life for his self and finding the one person who turns his world upside down. It is so very easy to picture this as a delightful movie that would become a classic in no time. I have mixed feelings about the narration, oh I feel she did a great job but her normal voice is just to cheery for me. I can hear the sun shine when I think it might have been a little better if it wasn’t shinning so loud. Her character voices are wonderful both male and female are great, you always know who is talking and what they are feeling. She can really pull out the emotions of each character as she brings the story to life. There are no repeating of words, no volume change and no background noise. She does have a pleasant normal voice it just isn’t one that sounds natural to me, I can’t imagine talking to someone who is so cheery, and it just seem forced. Besides that I think it was a great audio, it is very clear and clean. The one thing I really like about this author is she gives such wonderful delightful characters you can relate to. Even though Jack was in an earlier book you don’t feel lost if you haven’t read it. Yes you have a few questions but the author fills that in well that you can read this as a standalone. I do have to say it does make you want to read the other book to find out a little more about him but it is not needed. There is no doubt I love Jack and all he stands for but Elizabeth and her mother stole myh heart as well. I loved how time travel has show this family the newer ways of life that women don’t need a man and should not be forced into marriage. I loved how her parents made plans for her that should she choose not to marry she will be able to take care of herself. It is great how she stands up and tells it like it is, she is very intelligent just a lovely all around person. I loved this plot as well as the characters, I find time travel so amazing and have to wonder if it is really out there. I know this is one author that makes me believe it is. The author gives you a tale of one man traveling more to the future which adds a little mystery to it. I really loved how Elizabeth was telling the tale and saw the handsome man in the mirror when she was young, then years later she meets him. There is mystery around him and the story of his tale. I thought the author really put some time and thought into the writing of this book writing in a way that pulls the reader in giving a story that touches your soul making you just feel at peace watching these two with their cat and mouse game. The buildup of the romance was delightful as well as the few twists and turns the author gives. We first meet Captain Jack in a past book he really took my breath a way then but not as much as he does now. The reader had mixed feeling in the past book wanting him to come out the winner of the ladies hand. I felt sorry for him and was so glad he got his own story that is more touching than the last book he was in. They say everything happens for a reason which this author has shown. It wasn’t his time for love there was a strong love waiting for him and so worth the wait. For me this was a great read with a touching romance that I totally enjoyed and got lost in. I loved the mystery and the twists and turns which I found to be exciting.

Love this author!

Big fan of Dawn Brower here! With this series, I’ve only listened to (audiobooks) books 5 and 6. On that note, both could have been stand-alone. I liked that because Elizabeth’s mother had been from the future (went to the past) she was able to raise her daughter differently than what was typical of this time period. I also liked the twist between Jack and Elizabeth. When he believes that the two are related, I was curious as to how Ms. Brower would turn their relationship into something positive considering the two cared about each other but, had they been related, in an inappropriate way.

The narrator, whom I've never listened to, did a good job. Although there were some characters (the butler comes to mind) who had the same voice as the narrating one, she was able to provide a different voice for each character.

In the end, I’m always on the lookout for more stories by Dawn Brower. She’s a great writer!
