Series: River of No Return #0.5
Published by Penguin Group on February 2014
Genres: Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, Time Travel
When Alva receives an invitation from a man offering his services as a Time Tutor, she doesn’t know what to think: Is he a time traveler or a charlatan? And does it really matter, when he is so devilishly attractive?
The Time Tutor is a fast-paced romantic prequel to Bee Ridgway’s acclaimed novel, The River of No Return.
Bee Ridgway’s The River of No Return was one of my favourite reads of last year – a story of time travel and romance set both in Regency times and modern London. To celebrate the paperback release, Penguin have published this special prequel novella to the series – The Time Tutor.
The Time Tutor follows the events that unfold as Hannelore, the leader and matriarch of the Guild, decides to test two of her Favourites – Alva and Bertrand. It’s been quite a while since I read The River of No Return so I didn’t remember a lot about these characters, but it started to come back as the members of the Guild and the Ofan start to interact. Who is the Ofan spy infiltrating the Guild and who, if anyone, is to be trusted?
You don’t need to have read The River of No Return before reading this prequel. Although the workings of time travel get quite complicated, the basics are explained here as well as the difference between the Guild and Ofan factions.
The story itself is short but driven, with some rather sexy moments thrown in for good measure. The Time Tutor made me want to re-read the first book and whetted my appetite for the second, whenever that will be!
Penguin USA has kindly provided a copy of the paperback edition of The River of No Return to give away to one lucky reader! Because the book will be sent directly from the publisher, we have to limit the entries to USA and Canada only – sorry, readers from other countries!
