    One thought on “The Bride of Time”

    1. Of the 4 Dawn Thompson books I have read, including this one, The Bride of Time is by far my favorite. It was a bit of a combination of the themes used in The Falcon's Bride and The Ravencliff Bride. (The Waterlord was the other book by hers I've read.) In order from favorite to least favorite (I very much enjoyed all of them, though:1. The Bride of Time2. Ravencliff Bride3. Waterlord4. The Falcon's BrideI always love her themes. I love the paranormal/magical elements in her stories. I find her [...]

    2. This book could have been better than what it was. I found myself frequently bored with this book and it took me FOREVER to read it. Also, the author seemed to get mixed up in the time line. The painting was gone on the day that Tessa was accused of stealing the brooch so how is it possible that cops would be looking for her before the painting was sold? I didn't find either of the main characters to be exceptionally likable and I truly didn't care what the heck happened to them. In the end, wit [...]

    3. As a time travel fan, I picked this up. It had a unique slant and a werewolf too which I didn't know getting into it. I really enjoyed the gypsy angle, this was a cool addition. It was a bit too predictable at times but overall good escapist fiction and I would recommend to fans of time travel fiction.

    4. It started out like your typical gothic romance with a time travel twist. I was really surprised at how well she mixed the paranormal genre with the gothic romance. There could have been a little better character development on the part of the hero but on the whole I found the author was a good world builder and the book a good read.

    5. The Bride of Time is a time-travel, as one might infer from the title, and it's another of author Dawn Thompson's tour de force books that continually amazed me with just how talented she was. Tessa LaPrelle is a scullery maid in Poole House. She speaks proper English, has manners of a lady, but she is nothing more than a maid in the year 1903. On her day off, she stumbles across the self-portrait of Giles Longworth and is drawn to the image of the handsome artist, as well as another of his pain [...]

    6. Tessa LePrelle is a scullery maid in London in the year 1903. To brighten up her dreary existence she visits a gallery where a century old painting by Giles Longworth, the “Bride of Time” is on display. She’s not only drawn to patchwork hills and the manor house hidden in the mist, the woman in the portrait intrigues her. She resembles her in many ways. After being accused of stealing from her employee, she makes as mad dash through the London fog hoping to escape the Bobbies that are dete [...]

    7. A LEAP FROM TIME INTO ANOTHER ERAHOW FASCINATING! Verified PurchaseThis review is from: The Bride of Time (Kindle Edition)I didn't expect this to be so entertaining, leaping from early 1900 to early 1800 and back, I was afraid Tessa LaPrelle will never find that lane back. I would cringed and scream NO each time she leaped back to her time, afraid she'll get stuck and not be able to find her way backoh, but she has to go back, back to something terrifying but also to something so wonderful. into [...]

    8. Dawn Thompson’s book, The Bride of Time, is so engrossing you will not be able to put it down. It catches your interest the moment Tessa La Prelle has her nightmare. You can almost feel the hot breath on your neck as she runs for her life.In a small gallery she’s drawn to a hundred year old painting and the artist’s self- portrait. The picture haunts her because “The Bride of Time” resembles Tessa, and the artist looks familiar. When a broach is stolen Tessa, a scullery maid, is blamed [...]

    9. The heroine get thrust back and forth threw time on multiple occations throughout the book. This didn't really seem to shock her much- I suppose having gone from 1903 to 1800's wasn't a massive change compared to a modern women going back. The hero was a drunken whoremonger who's gets bitten by his sisters step son and turned into a werewolf. The boy was an evil figure, like he was possessed by the devil and creepy as hell. I liked the book except for one part. The hero, in his lust crazed chang [...]

    10. I haven't read too many time travel books, so I wasn't sure what to expect. If it didn't have a werewolf angle I probably wouldn't have picked it up!I really liked this book. I had ideas about how I thought the story would go, and was pleasantly surprised when I was wrong!My only complaint is that it ended too soon, I wanted to see what happened next sounded like there was still an adventure ahead of them.

    11. I picked this one up on sale on without reading anything about it and was delightfully surprised! It was a wonderful mix-up of several generes: time travel, werewolves, gypsies, art, Regency, and Edwardian. Seriously! All in one book! And, somehow, it works. So, if you like any or all of those, by all means, give it a read!! It hits so many elements, there is bound to be something in it for everyone!!

    12. It's been a while since I've read a paranormal historical romance. This was a refreshing change from the other books in my to be read pile. It was a good and entertaining book. I really liked Tessa so I wanted to see her get a happily ever after.

    13. While escaping the law, accused of a crime she didn't commit, Tessa stumbles upon Laylines and finds herself 100 years in the past. She comes across handsome brooding artist Giles, and his 9 year old ward, who's much more then a typical problem child

    14. WonderfulReal good reading, kept me on the edge of my seat. You didn't want to put it down . Sometimes it was hot and steamy.

    15. Very goodThis was a very good story, I enjoyed this book very much, I recommend to all adults to read and more
