Losing Time by Chris Karlsen
Can love survive the wrong time and place?
Felicia Wycliff’s peaceful stroll through the woods turned to disaster when her dachshund bolted after a rabbit. One minute Felicia was running after the determined little dog, the next she was hurled to the ground. Gathering her wits after her tumble, she brushed herself off and continued her pursuit—-right into three mounted knights who blocked her path.
They were so authentic looking. They might’ve stepped from the keep of the nearby castle, Elysian Fields. But the old Norman fortress was a ruin and had been for three hundred years.
“Seize her,” the middle knight ordered, the knight who sat tallest in the saddle.
“Let me go.” She fought, striking out when the two knights grabbed her. “Who the deuce are you?”
“I’m the Captain of the Baron’s Guard, and you are trespassing.”
Kidnapped, her confusion and fear consumed her. But when they rode through the gates of Elysian Fields, the castle looking as formidable as the date it was built, her terror exploded.
When she fell she knew exactly where she was. But where the devil had she landed?

“A Twist in Time Travel”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Nikki
Felicia is out walking with her dog, Chloe, when she suddenly walks into a fairy tale with castles and knights. Who wouldn’t want that? Except, no one would want to mysteriously disappear into a completely different time with no one you know, and your poor little pooch is still nowhere to be found! Honestly, this is probably my favorite part. Imagining Felicia talking to a knight about a “wiener dog” like it was just another day. I can just picture their faces. And it gave a great introduction into how the rest of Felicia’s story was going to go from there.
What could easily be mistaken for just another time traveling book, a retelling of a popular series, Losing Time stands apart in so many ways. This is the 5th book in the Knight in Time series, but can be read on its own without missing any key information, and without spoiling the previous books in the series. I do feel that any reader should be warned that they will want to read the other books in this series after finishing Losing Time. Everything anyone could want is included in the book: Romance, humor, and a little bit of mystery and magic to bring it all together!
