I just love time travel stories, especially with Medieval heroes and heroines. This one is good. Love the strength of the leading lady. Also the honour and integrity of her husband. The "servant" is a nice touch too, that spans all times. All in all a fine read i could not put down until i finished it😊
This is a clean mediaeval time travel romance, in which the hero, Collier Morrow, travels back from modern times to the fifteenth century where the Wars of the Roses are being fought. It's a curate's egg of a book, good in parts. My main problem was with the hero. His back story isn't sufficiently detailed to let us into his character. At the beginning of the story in the present day, Collier is busy messing up his relationship with his girlfriend Aryn through an apparent inability to commit, yet when he goes back to the 15th century he keeps mooning over her and wishing that the mediaeval heroine Catherine were her. For the first few chapters after his shift in time he is under the impression he's having a dream, then he abruptly comes to the conclusion that he has travelled back in time and that's it. No panic, no disbelief, no real anguish over getting back. In fact he changes from a train wreck to a competent soldier and commander far too quickly to be credible. The end also incorporates a lot of bridge mending with his brother, and some stuff about their mother which didn't make any sense to me. Maybe there was something about it in the previous book, but if Leigh was hoping to engage readers' emotions based on these aspects of backstory, then she needed to put more detail in this one. The historical scenes at Catherine's family seat of Irondale were the best parts. Quality of editing is very good; it's not full of irritating typos like so many books I have read recently. I wouldn't rule out reading another of Leigh's books, but I won't be rushing to do so.
Tamara Leigh is one of the best authors ever. Her books are spell binding, and Lady Ever After is no exception. From the beginning to the end this book keeps you on the edge, full of intrigue, suspense and romance, Tamara spins a tale that you just cannot put down. It is a beautiful book and you will not be disappointed in spending your precious time reading this book, from the beginning to the end it is perfect. Enjoy, I did and I know you will too.
