About Jennifer Connors

I started writing fiction at the age of 12 for my friends. Of course, in those days, I was the heroine, saving dashing rock stars from their ruin. Now, somewhat older, hopefully wiser, I decided to finally put down my ideas on paper and write about a heroine not unlike myself (personality wise, certainly not realistically).

After finding my own soulmate (which is just another word for the only man willing to live with me), and having two beautiful children, I'm changing my stay-at-home mom status to part-time author. Which isn't to say that my days are not still filled with laundry and dishes, but I've also added writing.

I have many plans for my heroine, Ginny. She will meet matchmakers, pirates, cowboys and maybe a vampire or two. If I've read it in a romance novel, you can bet, Ginny will live it in an upcoming novel.

Thank you for all the support from my family and friends. Without my overly encouraging husband, none of these books would have been written. And I really appreciate my fellow neighborhood mommies. They make the best editors in the world.

at the end of the book i was like what the f***.. then i thought like it might be a cliff hanger and then there was the first chapter of the next book in the series and like "oh shit...".. O..K that was vague.. but better than a spolier right.. so what u need to know is that it is a amazing book and u should read it! *^___^*

The story line is from Julie Garwood's best selling novel 'The Secret'. Could not appreciate what the author has written. Can't help but feel like it is plagiarism. So no, I am not giving this book any stars.

Interesting book, was up till 3am finishing it. Enjoyed the beginning not quite knowing where it would go and shocked at the change but really got into the characters after a while. Didn't enjoy the ending and wanted to know to those left behind. Will invest in the second book to see if it finalises a few details. It was a good read for what it was.

Clever working of time travel romance. This book in the series pokes some fun at the Highlander theme.

I must say that the beginning did little for me and dragged quite a bit, (needs to be reworked) but the moment she was thrust into another womans body, the story became quite enjoyable.
Overall it was well worth reading (reminds me a little of that T.V. series where that man gets thrust into a new person each episode to solve their problems - I can't remember the name)
I was a little shocked at the abrupt ending to the story and my first response was "What the hell?" but then I read the start of the next book and realised where the author was going with it. I can't wait to read book two. :)

I had this book for free and that is why I decided to try it because I didn't know the author. The idea is very nice and the plot is interesting but... and I think this is important, there are so many mistakes, typos, grammar, tense mistakes that the book losses credibility. Ms Connors should invest in an editor to help improve a book that have a big potential but losses it in the way. Maybe also polish some parts. It's really a pity to leave it like this.

Read this book in a few hours and went to purchase the sequel immediately. I loved the characters and found myself connecting with the heroine. However the end seemed a little too abrupt as I would have wanted to know what happened to Ian and all the others. It seemed to end on too much of a harsh note. Anyway it was pretty good for a free book and hoping that the next one doesn't disappoint.

I do agree with Rebel & Liana WW regarding the beginning of the story. Hard to get into it and the poor quality of the writing at that point did not help, but as she is transported in time the quality and the storyline are improving. It is an enjoyable read and I am curious about the rest of the serie.

I read this book while I was on vacation on with my husband when I started to read this book. this book invoked a lot of emotions for me in one way or another. The fact that she gave up part of who she was to submit to his will but in the same token she was very ballsy to lay claim to what is right. I was rooting for her all the way until she passed out. It would have been nice to see her go through labor first before being yanked out of her out-of-body experience and placed in the next portion. Thank you for sharing.

Review by: Rebel on Sep. 01, 2010 :
The writing style of the book particulary in the beginning was irritating as it sounded more like someone recalling their day, hence preventing you from being involved in the book. However this improved further along which was great because it made justice to how good the plot was. I loved the characters, their reactions to what Ginny said or did. Ginny was amazing as i felt her emotions and her comebacks were good. though i must say i will love to know what happened to lady Genevive in her new life (and Mckennn's reaction), after all she was a british lady that could throw knvies and shoot arrows. All in all a good read

I really enjoyed this book and found myself emotionally connecting with most of the characters, not only the heroine. The ending left me wanting to know what is to become of Ginny and what happened to those she left behind. 'A Lesson In Forgiveness', the book detailing the next segment of Ginny's experiences is already a part of my library and I look forward to another romantic, adventurous and sensual story.

Dreadful. I don't know if the other reviewers gave five stars because they don't know what good writing looks like, or because they didn't expect much from a free book.

The idea is fun. Quirky. A cute little spin on a romance novel. The writing is unbearably bad. It reads like fanfic. Very POOR fanfic. In the first five pages the characters "kept thinking", "kept saying", kept kept kept.

Reading this book was like listening to a second grader talk about her day. "And then we did this. And then this happened. And then I thought this." Tell me a story that doesn't sound like you're reading me your grocery list.

Absolutely enjoyed this story. I loved the blending of the historical background with the contemporary character of Ginny. She's so funny and relatable, one can't help but to hope that it all turns around for her. I honestly laughed out loud at some of the references she made. Very good read. Can't wait to read the next in this series.
