First time in print
Lynn Kurland is the national bestselling author of This is All I Ask, A Dance Through TIme, and Stardust of Yesterday
Stardust of Yesterday was the winner of two RITA Awards and a Waldenbooks award for bestselling first romance
Few romance writers have created such a whirl of critical acclaim and reader response as Kurland - a major new star on the rise
Wealthy beyond measure but disillusioned and unfulfilled by his years as a corporate raider, Alex Smith definitely needs a change of scene. What he gets, however, is a change of time when an old pirate map and a gate to the past suddenly land him in the forests of medieval England at the feet of a strangely lovely armor-clad knighta knight who eventually not only abducts him but turns out to be a woman. Lively, often funny, but brutally realistic, this well-written story pairs a defiant woman determined to defend her lands at all costs with a reluctant out-of-time hero who rises to the occasion, then gives them a cause to fight for and a love to live for and lets their actions drive the plot. Memorable, complex characters and a clean, fast-paced, yet descriptive writing style recommend this story, which has links to Kurland's A Dance Through Time (Jove, 1996). Kurland won a Rita for Stardust of Yesterday (Jove, 1996) and lives in the Pacific Northwest.
