In this modern day fairy tale, Karen Michelle Nutt entrances her readers to enter into her latest novel entitled Lost in the Mist of Time. First we meet Aislinn Hennessy, an independent, intelligent, beautiful woman. She is romance writer who loves writing romance tales but can never seem to find a real one. Her past relationships failed horribly and nothing appears to be changing until she reaches the mist.
While driving she hits a stranger. Someone who appears to be from another century; the sixteenth century to be exact. Sir Dougray Fitzpatrick, Lord of Dunhavenís history not much brighter than Aislinnís, encounters each other with much suspicion. However, they are destined to meet. Sir Fitzpatrick, a widow, was told by a psychic he would meet a traveler who would help him set the future right.
Through their fights, turbulent battles, sometimes, humorous trickeries, and always wild adventures, Dougray discovers Aislinn to be a woman of great strength, heart, and love. Aislinn finds Dougray as a man of courage, bravery, and honor. Their beautifully told story keeps readers in constant suspense.
Nutt is an excellent storyteller with a knack for pace, rhythm and description. She conveys the story without giving away too much too soon with artistic grace. Lost in the Mist of Time is precisely where the readers will find themselves as soon as they turn the first page. It is truly a thrilling read.
