Review ~ The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale by Christine Bell
AUTHOR: Christine Bell
TYPE: time-travel (AKA fantasy)
REASON FOR READ:
The story sounded interesting and I admit I was curious about a time traveling pirate
SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
I'm a time pirate—born in 1810, now a 21st-century woman. I travel through time trying to right wrongs without disrupting the fragile balance between what is and what can never be.
That's why it's vital that I go to 1836 and find the man who conned my brother out of his Time Travel Mechanism as quickly as possible. If the technology falls into the wrong hands, it could change the world as we know it. The notorious Duke of Leister definitely qualifies as the wrong hands. An amateur scientist of the slightly mad variety, he's bound to figure out how to use the TTM sooner rather than later.
I knew this wouldn't be easy. But I wasn't counting on him being as sexy as hell. Or winding up chained to his bed…
This was a fast, quick read and I have no idea why but I thought it was a full length book. Had I know it was only 30,000 words roughly I would’ve read it sooner.
I liked the characters, loved the background, and I fully admit I am a complete sucker for the romance. Keep in mind there is not a lot of room for character growth or development but with the small amount of room she had Ms. Bell did a great job. I believed the romance, I liked the history of the characters and how they met. And I admit that I liked how it turned out.
The only complaint I have is the book was WAY TO SHORT…
