ONE MAGIC MOMENT
This is a story on an epic scale with humor and clever dialogue, yet it never overwhelms. Kurland has written another time travel marvel where the reader will be just as enchanted by the hero as the heroine is. The characters will be familiar to those who have read her previous work, but One Magic Moment can easily stand alone. Perfect for those looking for a happily ever after.
Tess Alexander is living her dream of having a restored medieval castle, working as an academic in medieval studies and enjoying her close-knit family. When she encounters the owner of a local garage who looks just like the man who married her sister 800 years ago, her seemingly perfect life is turned upside down. John de Piaget is just trying to mind his own business and wants nothing to do with the nosy scholar who is snooping around his garage. Yet the sight of Tess takes his breath away and he’s unable to think of anything but her — and eventually how he can protect her from the betrayal that threatens their life together.
