Is she complaining She then goes on to say that a few years back for Halloween she dressed up as a prostitute and this is when as a prostitute and this is when cooking school started noticing her Ummmm WHAT So this shy mousy girl who only cares about cooking and her body dressed p as a hooker for Halloween Really I m to believe this For all the talk that she is not attractive all of a sudden Kady is causing a time wide commotion From her trip to the past to her present in Alexandria and New York Kady has men falling all over her So much for her being fat and Blanco nocturno unattractive her words not mine I found the book to be lacking romance in the sense that she is with some guy constantly whether it be her douche fianc or Cole or Tarik but it is NOT the hero Tarikntil the very end Tarik and Kady get very little time together for Jake Millers Wheel us to see their romance blossom and develop The whole Cole is dead died at 9 but he is a ghost and the whole town is a ghost town and Kady goes back in time 150 years and visits this ghost town made very little sensenless you suspended belief and just read for the sake of reading How did a dead boy create a ghost town in which he is in his 30 s And how do items from this ghost town that never existed keep resurfacing 150 years later marriage certificate wedding dress Cole s cabin in the woods Cole and Kady get married in the fakeghost town in 1850 s and this marriage certificate shows p with Tarik in 1990 s How could this marriage certificate show p 150 years later when this never actually happened since Cole is a ghost and the whole town didn t exist how could there be a marriage certificate showing a man who DIED at 9 got married at 30 Again I m all for suspension of belief if things are going to make sense in the endBut if the author provides NO explanation I get really annoyed They go back in time to fix things so that Cole and his family don t get killed However by doing that they would have prevented Ruth from sleeping with Tarik s grandfather thereby preventing the conceiving of Tarik s father hence in present time Tarik wouldn t exist The author fixes this by having Tarik find his grandfather and telling him that he MUST seduce Ruth a married woman and that she must have a child this year this would be Tarik s dad Ummmm this is how the author ensures that Tarik still exists when they come back to the future OK I get it But how realistic is that The only reason Ruth slept with Tarik s grandfather before was because she was grieving over her killed husband and children If her family doesn t get killed which is what Kady went back in time to accomplish why would the non grieving Ruth cheat on her ALIVE husband I guess she would do it because the author told her toAnyways it was things like these that spoiled the book for me the second time around first time I guess I just didn t care I call this carelessness and personally find that it distracts from all the good that I saw in the book initially I hate when the thoughts I m left with are Wowwell that made no sense This was really good It kept me wanting to read even when I didn t have time I love how everything was wrapped p a bit out there in the believability department
But It Was Still it was still I think history would be changed ite a bit if even just one thing was changed in the past and that s why I took a star off Other than that if you like a bit of magical realism you would enjoy this romance D This is one of my most favorite book As always Ms Devereaux wrote a very nice time travelThis is a whirlwind romance with hearty characters They are fascinating and I love the way Jude Deveraux makes you To Kady was in the dusty western town of Legend Colorado where a hanging was about to commence With ick wits and than a little moxie Kady halts the proceedings much to the relief of one Cole Jordan a tall thankful and very appealin. ,
Ove them whatever they do and whatever they have been through This book comes alive I love everything about it The characters the plot and story line the blow
your mind ending The town of Legend through the years becomes so real that you wish mind ending The town of Legend through the years becomes so real that you wish could only visit it yourself This was an adventure with a difference it showed that through time the ties that binds a family are so strong that each moment effects the next generation Jude Deveraux has a way about making you
in something taking it away as though it never existed However keeping the story so intricate that you can not help but keep readingIf you are looking for something to read just for pleasure this is a good one with just enough romance to keep you interested without explicit sex Love it Love it Love it Diane I don t remember anything much about this book because I read this 15 years ago when I found it lying around the house helplessly pleading me to read it So I did and well I remember that the girl in the story is not your conventional pretty skinny heroine I also remember that the story contains a magical element like a time travel of some sort and I also concretely remember that there are scenes I read which are not yet supposed to be read by a 14 year old girl But I m sure if I read the book now I d say that it s a well written novel with adeuately mature scenes I liked it I m a fan of JD but I did struggle with the heroine having three men all in one book that were falling all over her I mean I can see one as the antagonist and one as the protagonist but three And then I wasn t clear on why she had to go back through the portal later Seemed to me she d finished her journey except maybe JD didn t have a high enough word count so she had to send Kady back through the portal one time no two times wait everybody jump in and let s see who jumps out Yeah that part I didn t care for I don t believe in messing with events that will alter the future Someone won t come back through because they ve never been born and in this case one of them didn t It was a little too far fetched that since they fixed the issue in the past the guy that Kady ltimately ends Discovering Your Heart with the Flag Page up with should have not existed even though they tried to allow for thatAgain I liked it it was light reading but maybe a little suspended reality than I like A very interesting readA very interesting entertaining read This is not my first time rereading Legend and still has the power to pull me in I will admit that there areestions left Prom Kings and Drama Queens unanswered in my thoughts but you still feel the hea is valid and there A very enjoyable experience Where this book falls on the motor revvin scaleSweet This book could be read by Puritans without blushing Sensual A few pages of sexy time but mostly storyHot NSFW but safe enough for the bus if you hide the coverErotic Oh myThis was my first romance novel I read it when I was 18 and a prude and I remember being a bit turned on and scandalized at the time By my standards today this book hardly counts as PG 13 There s exactly one sex scene but there s certainly a lot of gazing into each other s eyes and falling in love at first sightIt s funny the things that stick with you There are certain scenes I remember vividly and they are exactly as I remember them Then there are 300 other pages I don t remember at allThe writing leaves a bit to be desired but honestly the story is pretty darn good for a romance novel There are severalnexpected twists Kady spends a lot of time being mad sleeping cooking or some combination of those She grows a backbone over the course of the story and it s neat to see that happe. G manNow it's Kady's turn to enlist his help to find a way back home But before long Kady discovers a passion that she knows can only live in Legend Confident Conversation until Cole reveals a secret thatnites them in a way Kady never could have imagine.believe in something
