All of Linda Howard's novels are wonderful but this exceptional time travel is her first foray into paranormal romance and it's not to be missedGrace St John a scholar unwittingly discovers the Knights of Templar's secret treasure Suddenly her life is upturned when she spies her boss murdering her husband and brother With no reason to live except to extract vengeance Grace becomes a fugitive of the law as she attempts to find an explanation for this horrible actGrace simultaneously translates 14th century medieval documents written by Black Niall This embitter. In the rest room next door there was a long explosive sound of gas releasing then a contented Ahhh Grace clapped a hand over her mouth to hold back the hysterical giggle that rose in her throat She had to finish before he did or he might hear her The competition was the strangest in which she d ever engaged Ladies and Gentlemen I present you with Fear Peeing The next time I see a movie in which someone is on the run and afraid for their life I want this scene in it Son of Morning was such a hodgepodge of storytelling but strangely it all worked I liked the contemporary suspense part of the story just as much as I did the Scottish highlander slash Guardian of the Knights Templar slash faux bodice ripper slash whatever was going on here It was as if the author decided to put a B movie suspense plot together with a form of Outlander light Throw in a BFF computer hacker a sketchy pee scene and voila We now have a book I m digging on because it s so wonderfully mashed together with sexual tension danger and a little bit of humor When she saw Black Niall again she was going to throttle him even if she had to climb on a stool to do it Niall was your run of the mill highlander alpha type but his part in the story before the characters actually met up were a great romantic fantasy draw What woman wouldn t want some mystery man coming to her in her dreams so much so that she can even hear him whisper at her when she s not fully asleep Am I right She had never met a man like him before and never would again he was extraordinary in any century The sexual tension was well played My buddy readers and I were anxiously wondering how the time travel was going to happen and when the two main characters would come face to face However in the meantime we were all completely absorbed in Grace s time spent on the run from the big baddies When two bizarre halves of a whole are woven together in such a way that keeps you guessing and right there in the story it s a good thing As I ve seen before with this author s books some of the stuff reads a little off from PC norms of today one ex crooks generically labeled as the white guy and the black guy and I laughed a little at the mention of how it was much easier to find a pay phone than an atm definitely not true in the past 10 years or so but I know this book is almost 20 years old now so I m guessing we re looking at a snapshot of time past This is nothing like the other two Howard books I d read before but I enjoyed it all the same I m guessing that it won t be long before I am tempted into grabbing the next book of hers I can get my hands on
