Series: A Paradox In Time, #1
Genre: Historical Romance/Time Travel
Release Date: November 13, 2014
Is it really possible that somewhere in time, the perfect paradox could be created? Does romance really stand a chance, and could it ever flourish amidst so many intricacies and broken lives? How can a nineteenth-century governess unknowingly cause so much devastation?
As Nell’s world opens up, we follow her on a complex journey, on which she discovers love, loss and betrayal, and is forced to play a dangerous game from which there appears to be no escape.
An intricate family plot slowly begins to unravel, in which she finds herself centre stage. She was never supposed to leave Haunchcroft estate, and he will do everything in his power to keep her there…
Could a possible rip in time be the salvation that Nell seeks?
“I find you disturbingly beautiful,” are the contradictory words bestowed upon the governess by her master.
Mr Buchannan’s infatuation is a shadow from which Nell cannot escape. The feelings he holds for her are not reciprocated, and though his lust soon turns to love, Nell’s feelings towards him turn to hatred. Dreams and a love of literature are Nell’s only escapism from the downtrodden life she leads as a governess in the nineteenth century.
One night, an intruder on the estate catches Nell off guard, but she gives chase; a decision that leads her through an opening in time between the centuries, where she finds equality, true friendship and a completely different outlook on life.
Despite using this to her advantage to escape the advances of her unwanted suitor, she is somewhat perturbed when she unexpectedly finds him at her side in the twenty-first century. Will love conquer all, or will time always stand in their way?
Nell just experienced a loss that governess wish they never have to experience. Then she realizes that this is her opportunity to go and do something with her life. Read, teach and find the man she has been dreaming about.
Then Mr Buchannan admits he loves her and that he doesn't want her to leave. He tells her he is going to marry him and she will learn to love him.
She hates him and vows that will never change. Then she discovers the thief and while she is chasing him, gets transported to 1968.. From there things go crazy.
I liked the story, especially the 1800s part. Honestly I wish it wold have just been that time period. I have never read time travel books before so I was excited by this one.
I was just to confused. The time travel was not explained and Some things just didn't make sense.
I felt at the end it was rushed to end the story when I felt there was more that needed to be said. I will probably give the future books a try since I did like the characters in this one.
