Felicia Wycliff’s peaceful stroll through the woods turned to disaster when her dachshund bolted after a rabbit. One minute Felicia was running after the determined little dog, the next she was hurled to the ground. Gathering her wits after her tumble, she brushed herself off and continued her pursuit—-right into three mounted knights who blocked her path.

They were so authentic looking. They might’ve stepped from the keep of the nearby castle, Elysian Fields. But the old Norman fortress was a ruin and had been for three hundred years.

“Seize her,” the middle knight ordered, the knight who sat tallest in the saddle.
“Let me go.” She fought, striking out when the two knights grabbed her. “Who the deuce are you?”

“I’m the Captain of the Baron’s Guard, and you are trespassing.”

Kidnapped, her confusion and fear consumed her. But when they rode through the gates of Elysian Fields, the castle looking as formidable as the date it was built, her terror exploded.

When she fell she knew exactly where she was. But where the devil had she landed?


As she turned to ask if the riders had seen the dog, a man said, “Hold where you are.” He and two riders with him eyed her up and down. They all wore medieval armor but the visors of their helms were up. The frowns on each of them deepened as they scrutinized her.

Dr. Felicia Wycliff has literally stumbled into a realm beyond her imagination.  Elysian Fields, 1359, to be exact.  Medieval castles, no electricity, no plumbing, and knights in shining armor.  One particular arrogant knight named Sir Harold, Harry for short, was a thorn in her side and a danger to her heart.  From their first hilarious meeting of insulting her womanhood and her “butterbags”,

“Thanks.” She turned and over her shoulder snapped, “Speaking of boobs, you Renaissance Fair buffoons might try looking up chivalry.”

to her realization that even though she was falling for Harry, her career as a female doctor could only happen if she returned to 2018 without him.  But how was she going to do it?

Sir Harold Quarles was mystified by this woman who spoke English, but yet she didn’t.  What is this future she speaks of and why should he care if she returns to it?

This is one of my favorite genres. I’m a huge “A Knight in Shining Armor” and “Outlander” fan, so I was thrilled to find a refreshing addition to the time travel genre.  Felicia and Harry and their seemingly impossible romance capture your heart, but best of all, they make you laugh out loud with their hilarious banter.  Though this is book 5 in Karlsen’s Knights in Time series, it stands on its own and it is truly a love story through time and space.  Highly recommend.
