Promises Made at Midnight: The Knights of Berwyck, A Quest Through Time (Book 6)


TIME TRAVEL: All Bridgette Harris wants is a fresh start. Of course, that’s a bit hard to get when your ex travels in the same circles. Taking a chance, she takes the offer from an old woman to throw a coin into a fountain and in return, she can make a wish. What’s the worst that could happen? Perhaps not the worst, she finds herself in the arms of a brave knight. Sir Ulrick de Mohan is perplexed when a woman appears suddenly and seemingly from nowhere. He has heard of these women who are appearing, but there is no way that this woman can be meant for him. He has an important job to do and will stay focused on his mission. Will he come to realize that they are meant to be together? Or will Bridgette be forced back to her own time and once more into the path of her ex?

“Promises Made at Midnight” has an interesting plot. The concept is one that works well with a time travel romance. The descriptions of the different times are well written and really pull the reader into the story. The dialogue between Bridgette and Ulrick is amusing at times, and this just adds to the overall feel-good sense of the plot. Fans of historical romance will enjoy this one, and it could lead them to going back to read the other books in the series. There is a lot to be said for being able to bring two characters together from different times and making it work well. Sherry Ewing has achieved this - and then some.
