She encounters a patient who tells her he can send her two hundred years into the past to spend three months in the rugged Yellowstone wilderness at the dawn of the mountain man era.

Trapper Daniel Osborne’s first instinct is to protect this mysterious and unconventional woman from the harsh realities of his mountains. While he fights his growing attraction to her, he is left frustrated by her lies and secrecy. Daniel shows Aimee a side of Yellowstone she’s never experienced. She is torn between her feelings for him, and exposing a secret that will destroy everything he holds as truth. As her three months come to an end, she is faced with a dilemma: return to her own time, or stay with the man who opened her eyes to a whole new world. When the decision is made for her, both their lives will be changed forever.

I'd still give this 4 stars. 2013 review: Aimee Donovan is a nurse in 2010. It's during one of her shifts that she meets a cantankerous but seemingly harmless old man who shares her love of the outdoors and Yellowstone National Park. (Aimee is an avid backpacker and hiker) During one of their conversations, he tells her he is a time traveler and can send her into the past 200 years to experience what Yellowstone was like before the white man explored it. He'll send her for 3 months and pick her up and return her home after her grand adventure. Humoring him, because really - time travel? - she shows up one day after her shift with her backpack. The next thing Aimee knows, she wakes up in the wilderness completely alone. Yep - Yellowstone. In 1810. A little freaked out but knowing she has to think on her feet and stay calm, she sets out for the rendezvous point, wishing she had packed more than a sweater, a first aid kit and a few granola bars. It's during her trek that she runs across a Grizzly with a fresh kill and ends up injured on a ledge with no help in sight. (She fell down a ravine trying to get away). Daniel Osborne, mountain man and (coincidentally) son of the old man who sent Aimee to the past, finds her and takes her back to his cabin deep in the heart of Yellowstone. He's never seen a white woman this far into the wilderness and is naturally suspicious. Even more so when Aimee refuses to tell him how she got there in the first place. Having had a bad experience (naturally) with a white woman in the past, Daniel is none too friendly with Aimee and intends to take her to the big city once she heals. For a freebie I picked up at Amazon (don't judge), this was pretty darn good. There were a handful of scenes that were fairly predictable but for the most part, this was an engaging and interesting story. The dialog was believable and even though Aimee was in the ballpark of being TSTL with her refusal to LISTEN to Daniel at times, it kept me interested and I ended up reading the whole thing in one sitting. The HEA made me "aww" and that's always a plus. 4 stars

    Yellowstone Heart Song by Peggy L. Henderson is an adventure time travel historical romance, particularly appealing to those who love the wilderness. Who hasn’t imagined what it was like to live in the American frontier – to be the first people to co-exist with Native Americans? This book brings that dream alive.

After reading Letters from Yellowstone by Diane Sm Yellowstone Heart Song by Peggy L. Henderson is an adventure time travel historical romance, particularly appealing to those who love the wilderness. Who hasn’t imagined what it was like to live in the American frontier – to be the first people to co-exist with Native Americans? This book brings that dream alive. I’ve included my own Yellowstone photos at my blog as incentive to visit this awesome National Park. Why was this book in Dorine’s TBR? After reading Letters from Yellowstone by Diane Smith in 2002, I craved more historical fiction in this setting. Our National Parks easily spark our imagination about those who discovered this incredible land for the first time. It’s hard to find believable romance written about hardened trappers or mountain men, without adding in a modern woman who can make them get over themselves. Discovering Yellowstone Heart Song available for free was all I needed to add this new-to-me author’s book to my TBR in 2013. NOTE: Our TBR Challenge theme this month is historical – my favorite sub-genre of fiction and romantic fiction. Even though I chose Time Travel, I’ve added links at my blog to historical fiction and romance I’ve enjoyed related to this novel, as well as books recently read that you might enjoy. Aimee Donovan hikes in Yellowstone National Park every year, so her fascination with the wilderness is vivid. As an ER nurse, she probably meets many unusual people, but the man who swears he can time travel takes the cake. Half wanting to believe him, she haphazardly throws together a backpack, not fully convinced he can send her to Yellowstone in 1810. When he does exactly that, Aimee realizes she’s on her own in a dangerous frontier for three months, until the crazy man brings her back to the future. Of course, she gets herself into trouble immediately and is rescued by a gorgeous mountain man. Trapper Daniel Osborne’s instinct is to send the woman he rescues to the nearest city the first chance he gets. He’s waiting for his father to return to finish their winter preparations, then he’ll take Aimee to St. Louis. Meanwhile, he’s stuck with her while her actions consistently beg his rescue. First, many aspects of this book are anticipated. The heroine is proficient and intelligent, but naturally bumbles into trouble so that the hero needs to rescue her, even when she doesn’t need rescued. The hero is unsurprisingly a Neanderthal in his “I am man – I must protect woman” attitude, so he comes across rather strong in some places. The white hero naturally has a Native American best friend who he considers his brother. With all these predictable attributes, I enjoyed this book immensely because I feel books like this are entertaining. I laughed more than once and smiled a lot. After all, isn’t that why we read romance? There are certain things we expect, among the things we don’t, that entertain us. This is that type of book. It’s soothing when my expectations are met, but entertaining when a different spin increases the anticipation. What I love most about this book is its twist on the time travel aspects and the incredibly scenic location. Having been to Yellowstone, I’m even more fascinated by reliving it through fiction. Author Peggy L. Henderson paints a vivid picture of the time, the people and the setting. I especially enjoyed Daniel’s efforts to teach Aimee how to survive in the wilderness. Aimee was already semi-knowledgeable, as well as understanding things Daniel did not, so they intrigued one another. I’m not proficient on Blackfoot or Shoshoni history, so I can’t say whether they were portrayed accurately or not. What I did like is that the whites attempted to live companionably among the natives. The hero had been adopted by a tribe as a young boy, so he respected their customs and naturally defended against their enemies. All aspects of his relationship with Native Americans was believable, plus appreciated as I believe it was done in a respectful manner. I dislike books that paint the Native American as the bad guy when, truthfully, it’s everyone else invading their land. This book has all the aspects of historical fiction that I enjoy, including respect. It wasn’t all fluff, either. There were some very realistic violent scenes, as well as a hint at attempted rape, but nothing too overwhelming. Of course, you must suspend your belief that a woman from the future can be plopped down in the middle of nowhere and find a man. Half the fun is how they react to, and then overcome, each conflict. Yellowstone Heart Song is the first book in Peggy L. Henderson’s Yellowstone Romance series. It’s free, along with several other first books in related series. After reading Yellowstone Heart Song, I grabbed the rest of the freebies because I enjoy her writing. I’m anxious to order the rest of the Yellowstone series so I can follow Aimee and Daniel, as well as their descendants. It’s rare that I’ll order a whole series after reading a freebie, so my willingness to do that tells me that the author intrigues me. If you love National Parks as much as I do, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy imagining Yellowstone in 1810 through this book. It’s humorous in all the right places, showcasing the differences between a mountain man of our past when faced with a dominate and opinionated woman of the future. The mention of a journal sealed the deal for me when it explained more of this couple’s future. This book isn’t perfect. I did roll my eyes a couple times at Aimee and got exasperated with Daniel’s twisted concept of women. I can easily overlook the few things I didn’t like because of the overall package of a well-researched novel. There aren’t a lot of fictional tales about trappers and reasonably so because their hardships where many. They’re a tough breed. A woman couldn’t live easily in this man’s world at that time without anxiety. Aimee’s experiences reflect all the fears a woman would have in those circumstances. If you’re serious about trapper history, then I recommend The Frontiersmen by Allan W. Eckert, one of my favorite historical novels that’s well researched and referenced. A quick, entertaining novel, Yellowstone Heart Song is the beginning of an intriguing frontier series set in an unusual location. This book made me very happy with its wilderness aspects so I hope the entire series includes more. In truth, I feel like I’ve hit gold discovering so many series cross related by an author I enjoy. I hope they’re all even better than this first book. Reviewed by Dorine, courtesy of The Zest Quest. Book obtained for free from Amazon.

I didn’t like that Aimee was not allowed to tell Daniel where she was from and I didn’t like Aimee had to go back in 3 months’ time. I found Daniel very endearing, the guy has no idea about the future. I liked the way he acted around Aimee and he was very kind. Aimee was ridiculous. I know she is from the present, but it’s not hard to not speak current slang. She keeps on projecting her modern attitude and it was a little annoying. Overall, I liked the story, I just hope the future books get better.

Henderson's book Come Home to Me I was looking at her other books on Amazon and realized that the first book in the Yellowstone Romance series was also a kindle freebie. I jumped at the chance to read this book as well. I absolutely loved Come Home to Me and while I didn't like Yellowstone Heart Song quite as much I still liked it a lot. One of the main reasons that I didn't like this book as much was I was never sure how much time had passed. At one point it says 'This man, who had become her whole life over the course of the last six weeks' and I made a note saying finally it tells how long it's been! This was a really great story. It's not one of those romances where they fall into bed with each other from the start. Both of them are hesitant to have a relationship for their own reasons and the story evolves over time. Although I love series where at least one of the people know right away the other is their mate or life-mate or however the series puts it there is something about the relationship development in stories like this that is really touching. The story starts with Aimee realizing that she is in Yellowstone and that what she thought was a crazy old man's stories are actually the truth. She has been transported 200 years into the past for the ultimate wilderness adventure. She soon meets up with Daniel who is untrusting of white women because of the way one treated him in the past. Aimee and Daniel's interactions varied from sweet to hilarious to beautiful. I really liked Aimee and Daniel. I liked Daniel's Indian family. My favorite part of the story was the end so I can't really talk about that. I don't like spoilers. This is my second time travel romance and I have to say I think I've found a new genre to love. Most historical romances are pretty boring but adding the time travel element really brings out the story. I look forward to reading more of Peggy L. Henderson's books including the rest of the Yellowstone Romance series. Favorite Quotes: "I would follow you to the ends of the world if I had to." "I am not good with words, but you make my heart sing, Aimee." "I have fought my affection for you all these weeks. I cannot fight it anymore. You are my heart song," he whispered.

    Yellowstone Heart Song by Peggy Henderson is a time slip romance that was an unexpected delight. It follows Aimee Donovan, a nurse from 2010, as she travels back two hundred years in time to 1810 and meets Daniel Osborne, an incredibly hunky trapper, who turns out to be the love of her life. Ms Henderson obviously knows the Yellowstone area well and her love for it shines through in the book. I enjoyed the tracking and hunting ‘ranger’ knowledge Aimee learns from Daniel and the glimpse into the Yellowstone Heart Song by Peggy Henderson is a time slip romance that was an unexpected delight.

I enjoyed the tracking and hunting ‘ranger’ knowledge Aimee learns from Daniel and the glimpse into the harsh life in 1810. I loved Daniel’s confusion at some of Aimee’s modern day phrases, for example, working out. Best of all was the unmistakeable chemistry between the two. Whilst Aimee knows she is in a different time, Daniel cannot understand how she came to be all by herself so far from civilisation. He doesn’t believe she will be able to survive but Aimee, with her modern attitude and medical knowledge, proves herself to be capable and competent and unlike any other woman than Daniel has ever met. That is not to say she doesn’t get into trouble and Daniel has to come to her rescue. As the sparks between them ignite into steamy passion, Aimee realises she doesn’t want to return to her own time. But this story does not just play out in 1810. You will not predict the twists and turns in Yellowstone Heart Song but you will fall in love with Aimee and Daniel.

    This was a great time travel historical/Daniel Boone story. I was surprised I liked it. Although, I really want a Daniel. My only question is: If you have the choice of going back in time & you can take what you want... Why leave everything back home & not take your pots & pans that aren't availabe (pie pan is what I am specifically thinking of) AND more medical supplies & drugs you know you can't get then... ESPECIALLY if they are freely available. (Tylenol, Advil, More lidocaine, betadine, banda This was a great time travel historical/Daniel Boone story. I was surprised I liked it.

Another backpack... Helllloooo!! There are tons of things she could have taken & she had help! It lost a star for not being prepared! I was a girlscout by force! Not choice & All I learned is to be prepared! Anyway, other than that frustration, it was great, so I am not sure how the next will compare...

    Yellowstone Heart Song is the story of a modern-day woman, nurse Aimee Donovan, accepting a once in a lifetime opportunity to time travel back to the time of the mountain man era in the Yellowstone wilderness - year 1810. She needs to survive for three months before she will be returned to her time. And she must tell no one where she came from. Aimee is rescued by trapper Daniel Osborne and taken to his cabin where they settle into daily wilderness life together, but not "together". Daniel is an Yellowstone Heart Song is the story of a modern-day woman, nurse Aimee Donovan, accepting a once in a lifetime opportunity to time travel back to the time of the mountain man era in the Yellowstone wilderness - year 1810. She needs to survive for three months before she will be returned to her time. And she must tell no one where she came from. Aimee is rescued by trapper Daniel Osborne and taken to his cabin where they settle into daily wilderness life together, but not "together". Daniel is an alpha male - he gathers, hunts, protects. He wonders where this white woman who appears to have dropped out of the sky came from, but he allows her to keep that secret. As the story unfolds, the chemistry builds as they fight their attraction to one another, each for their own reason. In three months, Aimee will be faced with a decision to stay or go. Daniel is clueless. While I felt this book was well-written, it tested my ability to suspend belief a few times too many. It was hard for me to buy into the circumstances that allowed her to travel back in time and several of the situations occurring in the story just didn't feel realistic though I found them predictable. The setting is obviously beautiful and well-researched. I liked that the romance was a slow-burn with a lot of push and pull occurring between these two characters as they battled wits, and yet I failed to feel the intense chemistry needed to sell me on their love by the end. As a result, I can't say I fully connected with either character. Given all the high ratings for this book, I'm assuming it just a case of the wrong book at the wrong time for me. Fans of romance and time travel should give Yellowstone Heart Song a shot.

    3 1/2-4 star with the ending, aww, bringing to 4. Time travel romance. This was a Kindle freebee with a $2 whispersync add on. It was pretty good after a little bit of a slow start, some predictable parts and a secret that I never understood why she would keep. Promise be damn. But then the ending was sweet. Surprising free read.

    This was a really good book. Well researched and just kind of amazing. I loved the time travel take on Yellowstone National Park 200 years ago. Daniel was the ultimate Alpha male. Living off the land, hunting and gathering for food. Aimee was Ana amazing spirit. Beautiful and open to new experiences. Though, like her, being a nurse, I'd take back a bunch of medical supplies.

    I got this free from Amazon. This is book one in a series. I really enjoyed this book. I felt Henderson did a great job telling the story. The author started with Amiee entering Yellowstone Park in 1810. At first I thought this book should have started at an earlier point, but later I changed my mind. I felt the little sense of mystery, mostly for the characters, was part of the enjoyment with the book. Daniel is very likable. I really liked Henderson's Indian characters. Elk Runner was great.

Acting like it was all good. What? This book was very entertaining. There was always something going on to where I didn't want to put it down. The ending was great to. I felt Henderson closed the book well. I was hoping the Aimee's roommate, Jana would be in a sequel but I don't think she is. Plus, the other books in the series look interesting.

    Well, this was definitely one of the best time travel books I've ever read! The love story between Daniel and Aimee is just too beautiful to put into words. I'm not an outdoors girl by any stretch so I admire Aimee's resilience and courage when she finds herself in a world that she's both familiar but unfamiliar with at the same time.. She was very headstrong and while this frustrated Daniel to no end, I know that was the one main facet of her personality that he fell in love with the most.

I am a bit of a sucker for time-travel romances, though. Content advisory: Includes one sex scene with a fair degree of explicitness. This is not for "clean romance only" readers.

    I usually have a very difficult time with time travel romances because they are not always plausible for me. This was not the case with Yellowstone Heart Song. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book and found myself lost in the pages. I could actually see the beauty of Yellowstone before it was ever a park thanks to Ms. Henderson's remarkable descriptions. And the explanation for time travel did not leave me shaking my head.

    For a random book that I got for free, this book was surprisingly really good. I don't usually read western historical's but I might need to start. I liked the characters, the story, and the slow building romance between these two. The time travel in the series was interesting and unique. I think I might read the next book in the series.

I was blown away at the first chapter. It catches attention and doesn't let go until the end. I adored the back-in-time vibe, the hot-but-not-crude writing style, and all the outdoor learning sessions. I love being able to learn new things by reading an awesome book! I got so into the plot; when Aimee fell off the cliff after the grizzly swiped at her....I almost had a heart attack! The characters became real to me; The reader becomes emotionally involved. I felt Aimee's pain, sadness, happiness. It was great. This is definitely not your average Forbidden Love Story. It has that vibe, but a whole new world that I am glad of. I do not like reading a book that I know I haven't read, but it sounds like another book. I like to be taken on journey after journey, but different ones, of course. I adore Aimee's take charge attitude when she's doing what she loves. Helping sick people. She may be a little self-confident about herself, but she is utter confident about her talent of healing sick people. Gotta love a take charge women. I do! I strive to be like her. Who comes up with dried snake head time traveling devices? Creative authors, of course! Ms. Henderson is her own person, tells her own story (not a story that's already been published by another author), and is so impressive! I have to admit, I was kinda dreading reading this book. I love Western/Historical, but I had just finished reading a horrible book that I did NOT like, and I made the mistake of assuming this story would be like all the other Western/Historical novels out there. Boy was I wrong! Never again will I assume. The ending was very surprising, but not in the least disappointing. I did cry when reading her diary thoug, that was sorta sad/happy. In a good way, tho. Recommendations?? I believe all Historical readers, Western lovers, and hunky men fans that adora a paranormal twist would definitely love getting lost in the pages of Yellowstone Heart Song.

Once again, the free read genie struck again and I am a happy reader because I have another author to gush over. What started as a way to try and break me out of a reading slump turned into the most delightful and sigh worthy diversion I've had in a while! Yellowstone Heart Song is a tender romance that literally spans time. Aimee is a successful, independent woman who is suddenly single after she realizes that she wants more than a controlling, unfeeling fiance. As stable and good as her life is, Aimee has always felt like she didn't belong in the modern world and that's something I immediately identified and sympathized with. Not only that but she was kind, intelligent, and funny. Daniel Osborne is an enigmatic character and remained much of a mystery throughout the first half of the book. He was a quiet man but that didn't dim his appeal at all. In fact, that quiet, contemplative nature of his made him more attractive. Who doesn't like the brooding, silent type that also knows how to survive in the wild? Author Peggy L. Henderson did a great job making the appearance of Zach Osborne and the subsequent time traveling seem natural and easy. When I've read time travel romances in the past, that element always seemed forced or fake and cheesy but in Yellowstone Heart Song it was plausible and even exciting but not without consequences. Those consequences and those brought on by Aimee and Zach's omission of the truth from Daniel created some borderline impossible obstacles for the couple to overcome. In fact, at about 90% of the way through the book I started worrying that Daniel and Aimee weren't going to be able to fix things between them. The obvious imagery in Yellowstone Heart Song gave the story such dimension and helped me understand the dilemmas and conflicts that nature presented both Daniel and Aimee. I felt like I was actually seeing all the sights that Aimee was! Final Verdict: I enjoyed the way the author wove this story together, making the time travel aspect seem incredible, yet believable. Aimee and Daniel's slow burn love story is one that I really enjoyed and the set up for another book in the series is pretty awesome and one I can't wait to get to. I haven't read a time travel romance in YEARS, much less a good one like this one! I'm hoping the magic continues in the rest of the series.

Henderson RT Book Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ RT Cover Rating: oooo “You are my heart love”, The Story of Aimee Donovan and Daniel Osborne. First let me tell you that this is the best book I’ve read in a long time. I literally could not put it down. Aimee, an ER nurse in California is full of adventure and loves to hike the wilderness in Yellowstone. She’s just broken her engagement to Brad, when she meets a patient Zach Osborne. But Zach is just not an ordinary man; he has the ability to time travel and offers Aimee the chance of a lifetime. To experience the wilderness as she has never experienced it before. Two hundred years in the past, and Aimee thinking he was a little on the crazy side and time travel doesn’t exist, she gladly says yes to his proposition. But with one stipulation, she can’t tell anyone she has traveled to the past. She finds herself in the middle of Yellowstone in the Rocky Mountains in the year 1810, disoriented and out of sorts. How did she get here, did Zach really send her 200 years into the past? She is prepared for this journey but not like she normally would be doing a hike at Yellowstone, and she soon finds herself in some deep trouble and a handsome, built to the hilts Daniel has to rescue her from her very dangerous situation. Daniel Osborne, son of Zach, a wilderness mountain man, hot as hell with a body to die for, is only set on surviving in this harsh land and preparing for the long hard winter months to come. With his father gone on his summer trip to St. Louis to sell their pelts and furs he has a whole lot of preparing to do before his father returs in the fall. But is adoptive brother and best friend Elk Runner, a Shoshoni warrior, finds Aimee, a white woman wondering around in the wilderness alone, he and Daniel rescue her from a dangerous and precarios prediciment and thus the story continues. I really enjoyed this author’s style of writing. It’s easy to follow, the writing is clean and the characters you’ll fall in love with. There is lots of history and facts in the book along with danger at every turn, lots of lies, and finally after a whole lot of tension the lovin’ parts. If you like time travel this is a must read. I will definitely read more books from Peggy.

    I tend to have a love hate relationship with time-travel books. This one falling it the love category. Really well crafted story with great twists and turns. I loved the way it started, it picks up with Aimee in 1810, as she wanders you get the whole story of how she came to be here rather than 2010. Thank goodness she actually has some survival training, too bad she did not prepare better. I loved her spirit and energy. She does a great job of rolling with the punches.

Thank goodness she actually has some survival training, too bad she did not prepare better. I loved her spirit and energy. She does a great job of rolling with the punches. Daniel takes a while to warm up to, he has issues and acts tough to protect his heart. He has the whole Alpha wilderness male down perfectly. Once you get to know him better he will win you over. But it really too me some time to get to like him enough to fall in love. This is in a mixed narrative style, you get the POV's of the two leads, most of the time it is Aimee. There are also a few scenes from other character's POV, it helps give a fuller story and greater understanding of motivations. This style really goes a long way in making Daniel like-able, cause he comes off jerky from Aimee's side of things. The romance grows over time and develops naturally. I enjoyed the dynamic between Aimee and Daniel once they sort out their issues. The story gets a little steamy, not full on erotic detail but some very smexy lovin occurs with an open bedroom door. You won't need a cold shower but a fan for your face might be a good idea to have handy! I listened to the audiobooks narrated by Alexandra Haag. She does a nice steady read with distinct voices. I generally like a swifter read, even at triple time it felt slower. She has a relaxing tone that lends itself to the story. During action moments there is a feeling of energy and urgency instilled into the read. I enjoyed her read, just wish I could have sped it up a touch. Overall, this is a really entertaining read. I can't say that any of the events surprised me, but it still managed to make me cry at a couple points. I am a sucker when it comes to romances!! I hoped the next book would be her friend Jana, but that seemed to be wrapped up in the Epilogue. I am eager to see what happens in the next book, it will be interesting to see what happens in the time travel.

Once scorned by his first so called love, he just doesn't put stock in the whole happy ever after. This was a first for me from author Peggy L. Henderson. It will not be my last. She carefully describes her characters very thoroughly but not long winded. Which I just loved. I could see it all so vivid in my mind while I read!. She had the perfect mixture of adventure and real life struggle. Throw in some dangerous moments where you really didn't know what was going to happen and you have Heart song. Did I mention the sexual tension and anticipation is just yummy??? I am very excited to read more of her work and hopefully complete the series.

    This review is long overdue. I recently finished the "last" of the Yellowstone series and wrote the author a review/note out of sheer joy and gratitude. Yellowstone Heart Song is among the best (probably THE best) of them all. My favorites are those that involve the main story line, which include the time travel arc. To recap that note here, I would unequivocally say that the writing in this book (and the series) is compelling, the stories are original, the heroines are worthy of admiration and This review is long overdue.

To recap that note here, I would unequivocally say that the writing in this book (and the series) is compelling, the stories are original, the heroines are worthy of admiration and the heroes are true men. The surgery scene in this particular book is one of my favorite scenes in any genre and this book in its entirety is phenomenally well done. Daniel is beyond compare as a hero and ranks among the top of all book-boyfriends and true Men out there. For those of you who enjoy time travel stories, you know that the availability out there are mostly miss, with very few hits. This book was everything and more. You will not be disappointed with this series. This book was free on Kindle and the rest of the series was very reasonably priced and worth the purchase. I really can't say anything negative about this series. You don't have to be particularly outdoorsy or have Aimee's personality to devour this book and the rest of this series. Will get around to reviewing the rest in time.

    I am not usually for time travel books...but I have to say, this one was well worth reading to the end. I was totally different than I had expected. I have read other reviews about how could Aimee go back to 1810 with out taking things from her present day life, like a pie pan, more medications or things that would help her cope....BUT if one would remember, she did not think Zack Osbourne was telling her the truth about time travel and just went along with the old man.

BUT to her amazement, she did travel back to 200 yrs earlier and YES she did fall in love with Zacks' son Daniel. BUT she promised Zack she would not tell Daniel where she came from or who she really was...NOR was she allowed to tell him about the time travel or his father. BUT when Zack's father came back and insisted that she return to the future...Daniel was beside himself when he could not find her, it was like she fell off the face of the earth. I am not going to ruin this beautiful story....let your mind wonder back to 1810 with Aimee and see for yourself if she done the right thing....Did she stay or did she go???.....read to book to find out...you will be shocked....I know I was!!!!

    Honestly, I was surprised by this book. It was a freebie on Amazon and I wasn't expecting much from a freebie. I must also tell you that I am not a fan of historicals for the most part. However this story was a delight, from the vivid details in the scenes to the oh-so-yummy hero, Daniel. The heroine, Amiee was enjoyable as well with the only thing that bothered me about her was that she supposedly had all this knowledge on backpacking through the wilderness yet she early on stumbled upon a bear Honestly, I was surprised by this book.

The heroine, Amiee was enjoyable as well with the only thing that bothered me about her was that she supposedly had all this knowledge on backpacking through the wilderness yet she early on stumbled upon a bear. The love scenes were not overly descriptive, so if this is a issue for you than I would rate this one maybe a 2 1/2 or 3 on a 5 point scale of hotness factor. Of course that scale is based on my opinion, you may find it higher or lower depending on your tastes. The attraction between the main characters was believable and rich. So many times have I read a book were the atrraction was forced. Overall I would recommed this book to anyone who likes time travel romances or if you are like me, on a budget and just looking for something to read. Happy Reading Everyone!

    I have to say that overall this was a decent book. I tend to bored with stories very descriptive, went to the store, got in my car, drove to another store, picked up mom, yada - yada - yada. Sometimes they can get over descriptive of everything where simplicity should possibly be better observed. There are parts that kind of did just that at the beginning but then there where parts where the story within the story was brilliant.

Example is at the beginning when Daniel goes into the story about the skunk with his brother. That was perfect. Overall this was a great pure romance novel. It wasn't laced with chapter after chapter of erotic scenes, but it does have a solid storyline and one intimate scene that puts this at a pg-13 rating. Oh, and I liked the ending. I kind of wanted a bit more though but I can live on with how it wrapped it up. I love time travel stories. I’m perhaps a little bit bias because of that. But overall, this story has more "guts" to make this a story for any day to lose yourself in.

    Absolutely wonderful! I adore all the characters and the setting is amazing as well. I have never been to Yellowstone but I want to go so badly now! Aimee is a wonderful lead character! She's spunky and outspoken and is definitely someone I would admire in my real life. Daniel is the quintessential heart throb! Who wouldn't fall in love with him. By far one of the BEST books I've read in a long time! My heart was more involved with this story than anything I've read recently. I felt their joy an Absolutely wonderful!

By far one of the BEST books I've read in a long time! My heart was more involved with this story than anything I've read recently. I felt their joy and their fear and Aimee's sorrow at the end was gut wrenching. I had never heard of the author, Peggy Henderson, before reading this but I can now say with utmost sincerity that I AM A FAN!! I loved that the 'romance' was about the actual romance and seduction rather than just the sex like so many romance novels are today. I just really, really loved all of this book. I'm going to start reading it again soon!
