    1. I expect a certain kind of hero in historical books The hero protects and demands respect for a lady who is his wife The king ordered Lord William and Lady Madeline to marry and bring peace to their adjoining lands Maddy travels back and replaces Madeline on her wedding day She finds that her new husband keeps his mistress down the hall from their rooms He didn t care at first because their marriage was forced on himI get that but after he decides he wants a relationship and the mistress is the [...]

    2. This was a great love story, although it took a while to get to that level William was just so ignorant and uncaring in the beginning And Madeline just went with the flow a little too much She allowed situations to occur in her and her husband s houses that had me thinking, This is where you need to cut a bitch But moving on from my violent thoughts When things got better between them, they were so sweet and dedicated to each other Then they finally uhh consummated the marriage which I had been [...]

    3. A charming and delightful 4.5 stars goes to Defiant Surrender I adored how the novel mixed old and new to bring forth the ultimate love story I tend to tread cautiously with these kinds of stories but Tamara Gill completely smashed this with her talented writing and darling characters Madeline ends up being transported from 2011 to 1102 into another Madeline s body who is about to marry a Baron, William Dowell William is cold, angry, and cruel towards Madeline which ensures she strongly dislikes [...]

    5. It d been a while since I ve read any time traveling romances at least ones that I hadn t already read a million times over So when NetGalley offered me this book in exchange for an honest review, I was understandably excited and could not wait to start reading it I had my reservations, of course Every time I got excited over something, it seemed to end up disappointing me in the end But that definitely was not the case with this one Madeline is a girl from the twenty first century, 2011 to be e [...]

    6. I liked it especially the third half but I felt it could ve been better I didn t like how quickly things changed between Maddie and William They went from really hating each other to jumping into bed together I would have liked to see things progress slowly and have them develop a real friendship first Also, the sex scenes were a little too descriptive for my taste Sometimes they weren t even all that sexy, imo All the mentions of manhood , womanhood , his member , his jewels , etcs it just got [...]

    7. A very memorable time travel romance The characters were well developed and enjoyable to get to know I loved the spunk of this modern day heroine who finds herself thrown into the 12th century The plot was entertaining with some excitement, danger, and romance The banter between the hero and heroine was the most fun with witty dialogue and humorous scenes The only weakness was the under developed and superficial beginning where the story describes the path of the heroine up to the point of the t [...]

    8. I really liked this book Received an ARC and was done in 2 days It had a few twists turns that I wasn t expecting Kept me guessing up to the end I started off not really wanting to like the hero but he than grew on me The characters are strong with several supporting characters as well Five stars Tamara another Great Read Thank you

    9. Rated 4.5 I adored the book A Stolen Season by Tamara Gill and when I saw this book, I was really excited to read it It takes place in medieval England which is a time period that is not often covered in historical romance novels I found it fascinating to read about the time of Henry I and the customs of the people Maddie has travelled back in time and inhabited the body of Lady Madeline who is on her way to be married This starts a very interesting story.Maddie s life in modern times is interes [...]

    12. I would give this 4.5 stars out of five it was a really great read and i loved it Im a complete history geek so i have a soft spot for any time travel romances and this one hit the mark.Just the right amount of raciness, story line, historical tidbits and action Madeline has found a ring whilst metal detecting in the Thames suffice to say she puts the ring on and is transported back to the 12th century and is being taken to her arranged wedding William is a baron and is marrying Lady Madeline un [...]

    13. I really liked this book, there were a couple of things that kept this from being a 5 star read for me, but it was close Maddie finds a very old ring in a pewter box and is instantly attached to the ring, she can t sleep, slips the ring on her finger, and wakes up in 1102 She is on her way to marry William, a match that neither wants or is looking forward to Medieval time period books are my favorite setting, loved the setting.William, hot, hunky, alpha medieval, sounds almost perfect except for [...]

    14. ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review What happens when a 21st century miss gets transported into the life and body of a medieval aristocrat on her way to an arranged marriage If it were me, I would be in hysterical tears for at least a week but Maddie is made of sterner stuff and tries to make the most of her situation, tries to blend in while trying to get back home However, she never compromises herself or her beliefs.William is every inch the lord forced to marry against his [...]

    17.

    18. Okay, I have read many time travel books in the past but had taken a break for awhile Wow, what a way to get back into the genre Now there were somethings I loved and somethings that I did not like at all However, the things that I did like far outweigh the things I didn t like The storyline was great The character building was pretty awesome Did not like some of Maddie s decisions I definitely would have done some things different But, in all I just could not put this book down As I write this [...]

    19. Lovely and endearing but frustratingLovely and endearing but frustratingThis ended as a lovely and endearing story I did not like Lord William for half of the book What man would allow his wife to get hit in the face and not kick the person who did it out ASAP Or sleep with someone else on his wedding night or allow his mistress to taunt his wife Maddy was almost as bad with her acceptance of his cheating and feeling sorry for his mistress I hated that Alex wasn t who you thought he was Despite [...]

    20. Maddie is living her life in 2011 and in an instant is whisked off into 1102 and on her way to her future husband This was such a beautiful story I loved Maddie right away Her contemporary mind trying to fit into 1102 Somtime you can help some of the things she says and everyone thinks she s a little off I loved this story and the twists and turns that Gill put into her story I didn t see coming The story exciting, intriguing, sexy, and so loving I was NOT expecting that ending Gill ended the st [...]

    21. I really liked this book I am not one to go for the time travel romance books but I do sometimes love the story so much it hard to say no too This book was one of them I must say I did like how the heroine did the best she could living in the past time The hero was sl0w to act like the hero but when he did so he won me over I overall loved this book and the authors writing I would recommend this book

    22. I received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest review.I really enjoyed this story, I m not usually a big fan of historical romance but I love paranormal This was a wonderful mix of old and new I could imagine being sent back in time and trying to cope with life with none of the modern things we taken for granted, not to mention arrogant men and nasty mistresses.A really good, quick read Highly recommended.

    23. Great read This was a great time travel read for medieval fans I loved the banter and chemistry between the two main characters I was a little nervous about the ending but it surprised me in a good way I actually felt their emotions with them so that makes it a perfect read in my opinion Now off to find another

    24. Who does not want to travel back in time and find and meet a handsome Lord I know I do When Maddie finds a ring and is tossed back into time, she finds herself at the hands of a Lord There is an attraction and want between the two But for a modern woman, can a man who is use taking care of and protecting, and being in charge give Maddie all she needs

    25. Defiant SurrenderI really enjoyed this time travel romance It was different from others I have read and kept me guessing till the end There was a good balance of characters both good and bad and the situations and emotions portrayed were believable I would recommend this book if you want a HEA that takes the long way around Something like 900 years but worth it.

    26. I really enjoyed this book except near the end it was not how I would have liked it I won t say as it would spoil it for others and others may not think the same But other than that it was great and would have got 5 stars.

    27. Great book if you want some romantic, steaming romance However, the whole tone of the book plus the ending cannot be taken too seriously to be rated any better, but for those who like historical romances this is an excellent book.

    28. I read this book in less than one day I loved this story a few parts I was like what or why but I thoughtt it was than 4 stars so didn t want to sell it short loved it overall though
