About to lose everything, Gabby Stone’s life is in shambles. Upon waking in a medieval castle owned by a sinfully sexy Scottish Laird, she believes she’s having an erotic dream and jumps right into the fantasy. But she quickly learns that this is no dream. Somehow she’s been transported into her favorite romance novel, Devlin’s Destiny, and is now starring as the heroine next to the scrumptious hero, Devlin McAlister, a character who puts all flesh-and-blood men to shame.
Deciding that living in this parallel universe is better than going back to her real life, Gabby plays it safe at first even though she hates the way the heroine in the book treats Devlin. As time passes, however, she finds herself wanting to become Devlin’s true heroine, to have him love her, not the woman he’s written to marry.
But how bound to the book is Devlin? With each turn of the page, obstacles are thrown in her path as a war between love and written words ensue. Can Gabby overcome a predetermined future to claim Devlin for her very own Happily Ever After?
Have you ever felt that you are so connected with a character in a book that you could see yourself interacting with him or her? If you have, then this book is for you.
Ms. Bishop creates a fantastic atmosphere, an isolation that envelops Gabby as she tries to break out of the fictional bindings in which she is trapped to be with the man she loves. The writing is witty and fast-paced; the Scottish dialect not nearly as frustrating to read as you might expect.
There are a few glitches in grammar, but nothing that would make you faint in horror. One peeve I had was that the resolution came too easily. I would have liked to see a bit more of Devlin’s character developing a bit more. Gabby, however, is full-fleshed and complex.
I would recommend this book for someone who wants to play a bit with the boundaries of make-belief. I, for one, was very entertained.
