    I'm finally writing this god damn review - WHOOPIE! Darkest Knight is one of those books that reminds me of Batman. No, he isn't in this book.. but it's because of that damn movie. Then there's the fact that I wouldn't normally dive into a book like this.. but for a certain challenge, that I created for my group, I dove into it. Honestly, I enjoyed it. I blame the accents. Now I will admit.. I listened to the audio. Lately it has been super hard for me to find time to read kindles and physical boo I'm finally writing this god damn review - WHOOPIE!

Then there's the fact that I wouldn't normally dive into a book like this.. but for a certain challenge, that I created for my group, I dove into it. Honestly, I enjoyed it. I blame the accents. Now I will admit.. I listened to the audio. Lately it has been super hard for me to find time to read kindles and physical books. I try to make my weekends revolve around those.. when I'm not at wineries or work. In this book, you will meet Anna who accidentally travels through time. She travels to the Medieval Period, which honestly sounds like a fun adventure... maybe? Was the plague happening then? Who knows - I can't think right now. Back to Anna, well she went from the year 2016 to 1331. While in that time zone, she meets John Thornton, aka The Bandit in the Woods. Low and behold, he's kind of locked up and going to die. Throughout the book they get to know each other a bit more.. and they also form an attraction to one another. Of course there's the whole elementary school love drama: does she/he love me? does she/he love me not? It was cute though. Besides all of that, there's the whole how long is she going to stay in this time? Will she ever be able to go back? Also.. this is one hell of a vacation for this girl. Overall, I really liked that I took one random ass chance on this book. If I find the next book on my audible romance package (for free), I will most definitely be getting it.

    The Medieval Era is a favorite time of mine. Thus, by choosing Cynthis Luhrs’ Darkest Knight (Thornton Brothers Time Travel #1), I was able to experience living during Medieval Period in England, one of my very favorite places. I met the Thornton brothers who I would very definitely like to be my friends. The author used some special twists to draw in the reader. What first grabbed me was where the story started - The Tower of London which I have seen about 5 times. I love going there. Anna, the The Medieval Era is a favorite time of mine.

I wish that I could have done that when I was there, but now I feel I have done it through Ms. Luhrs’ book, Darkest Knight. Another way the author dealt with time travel was language. She had Anna answer a knight whom she met with a one word answer that is used today, and that is “Whatever.” I laughed out loud at that! There are some others, but if you wish to know what they are, please pick up a copy of Darkest Knight. It is a light fun read which I thoroughly enjoyed!

Cynthia Luhrs is one of my favorite authors that I love to read time and again. I can easily read her book in one sitting that's just how much I love reading her books. The Thornton Brothers Time Travel Series is off to a great start with John's book. The characters and story are raw, honest, compelling, real, fascinating, and down to earth too. I'm really excited to read more of this series in the future.

    This is a spin off from the Merriweather Sisters Time Travel series where we first met John as the Bandit. I liked him then, love him now! As usual in all of Cynthia Luhrs' books the men are hot and incredibly caring and the women are strong and feisty. The characters are well written, consistent and very likable. If I'm being picky there wasn't quite as much historical information in this book but little references that reminded me of the books before added to it.

Although this is perfectly fine to read as a stand alone much more will be gained from reading the Merriweather Sisters first. Not only because they were great books :-) A really good read and I can't wait to read more of the Thornton brothers - all hot, tough and inclined to punch each other on meeting. All good fun! 4.5 stars I received this book as an ARC from the author in exhange for an honest review. THANK YOU

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I finished the Merriweather sisters trilogy and charged right ahead with the Thornton brothers series,curious to read John Thornton's story. This book I would rate 2.5 and round it up to 3. Initially, it was refreshing to have a female lead who wasn't an Amazon. However, she seemed to have no talents at all. Even her sense of direction turned out to be untrue. Anna's self esteem was low and constantly talked about in Anna's self talk. Her looks were put down by others and by herself.

Even her sense of direction turned out to be untrue. Anna's self esteem was low and constantly talked about in Anna's self talk. Her looks were put down by others and by herself. It was all a constant whine and it bugged me. Admittedly, she cared about her father but even that seemed now and again like something she may not fight for. I even doubted her ability to weed. It was hard for me to see the attraction between the two. Her primary strong quality was proximity. John, who had been so clever and in charge in book 2 of the Merriweather series, seemed like a lost waif in this one. Quite a disappointment. I thought it odd that Charlotte did not reveal to Anna the specifics of returning through time. Clearly the sisters had it down better than that. Also the otherworldly visitation of Anna's parents was a strange interlude and out of place. It did the job of relieving Anna of the guilt of not returning but it was weird. This has been my least favorite book of the two series. I may need a palate cleanser or two between the books at this point. Ah well. On to book 2. I hope for better ahead.

    I was so excited to start a new series with a lot of time traveling. It started OK-ish. Few chapters (5) in the story the heroine was not yet in the past but roaming the London tower. Once in the past I was excited for Anna to meet John and then....meh. It was like boy meets girl but they are 5. John a the successor of Robin Hood and Anna, well, a woman. It felt like I am reading a disjointed full of wholes story. In the romance department, well, there was no romance. Both characters barely spent I was so excited to start a new series with a lot of time traveling. It started OK-ish.

In the romance department, well, there was no romance. Both characters barely spent time together. There was no talk of love, attraction, barely an attempt to talk. No flirting, wooing, or hanky panky. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Few moments of action caused by Anna's own stupidity. Some sibling fights and barely bonding fast forward they are in London Tower, again. Oh, as an after though, in love. The end. So, a very predictable story, boring enough to regret I pick it up. NO romance. No redeeming moments. Nothing. Not even holding hands. I will not move forward with this author and the rest of the books from the series. If I wanted a PG13 story I would have went to movies. I personally cannot recommend the story.

Truthfully, I've been waiting for this guilt-battered bandit to have his love life ever since he was introduced in the Merriweather sisters series. If you've been waiting too, it's now here! Just reading John's name in the blurb made my fingers push the BUY button without thinking. Still, worth it.

    John Thornton & Anna Gosh what a journey this story has been, something like Robin Hood and Maid Marion, in this case, John and Anna. One of the more scarier story. I’m in tears as the ending was so sad. There is a bigger insight to old England’s Tower of London and Dungeons. Along with ruthless men and more action than the other books. It’s a journey to experience so I hope you will enjoy your. John Thornton & Anna Gosh what a journey this story has been, something like Robin Hood and Maid Marion, in this case, John and Anna.

    Can Mr. Wrong be Mr. Right 700 years in the past? This is a paranormal time travel story, one in a series, can be read alone, but the characters carryover from the first three books. I think the heroine in this story seems a little lighter in character than the others. But, I'm glad I found this author. Good read. Few typos.

    The story-telling feels quite rushed. There could have been a lot more said and done. They seem to be in such a hurry to get to the end.

    Started off great I loved the synopsis, and couldn't wait to dive in. I love how the story started out and truly loved every minute of it for awhile. However, after awhile the story felt disjointed. I felt like I was missing pieces to the story, and I never felt a connection in the romance department. The author never let's the reader fully experience the couple together in flirty or romantic ways. Heck, at one point he had no idea she was missing for a full week from his castle.
