Time-travel romances have made Lynn Kurland a bestseller in the here-and-now.
A duty-bound knight has taken on the task of rebuilding the most dilapidated castle in all of England.
A costume designer gets her chance to shine by showcasing her fairy- tale designs at an upscale party in an authentic medieval castle.
While I enjoyed the overall romance in this particular Kurland book, there was a major part of it that didn’t really fit and wasn’t needed. And it was ridden into the ground so much that I almost turned off the audio several times because I just couldn’t stand that part.
So, what’s this de Piaget story about? Pippa (short for Persephone) Alexander is on the cusp of her dream of starting her own clothing line. All she has to do is convince Stephan de Piaget to back her and she’ll be on her way. Only her sister Cinderella steps in front of her and works to outshine her in every way possible. At one point, through a work of a ghost, Cinderella knocks herself and Pippa back to the 13th century into the arms of Montgomery de Piaget.
Cinderella continually demeans her sister, puts her down, treats her like a slave and in only one part does Pippa put her in her place. That really bugged me. However, that aside, I adored watching Pippa deal with the 13th century and then Montgomery deal with the 21st century.
Once again, the narration was wonderful. But due to the whole annoying Cinderella angle, I could not give the book 5 stars. Pippa should have shoved her sister in the cesspit. After all, Cinderella shoved her into it twice and tried to kill her.
Still a good de Piaget book despite the sick and twisted Cindy. 4 stars.
