Footsteps in Time (The After Cilmeri Series Book 1) by Sarah Woodbury

The After Cilmeri Series by Sarah Woodbury

The first book came out in 2011 and the series has already grown to 10 books. Surprisingly without loosing any quality on the way.

The series starts with two teenagers who travel through time and find themselves in the year 1282. Llywelyn ap Gruffydd – the Prince of Wales – should have been killed. Because of their time travel he doesn’t die and history is changed. The first book and the following books tell the story of what might have happended had Llywelyn lived. And of course the story of the two teenagers is told, too.

Between all the history and adventures will although be time for romance, but not as much and explicit as in Outlander.

Bound to the Highlander by Kate Robbins

Bound to the Highlander by Kate Robbins

Yes, yes – another book about romance in Scotland. Seems like a really romantic folk up there. But the “The Highland Chiefs”-series has to make its story without time travel.

Aileana Chattan discovers after a devastating loss, that she is to wed neighboring chief and baron: James MacIntosh. She despises him and his traitorous clan – but nonetheless has to do her duty. On the other side James MacIntosh is not much into this marriage, too. He looks for ways to break the years old marriage contract.

From this fragment of the story you probably can guess enough of the outcome, but it is the story that gets them there, that is of interest.

The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley

The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley

The story of King Arthur has been told countless times. Mostly from the sight of the man in the story or at least. The The Mists of Avalon concentrates instead on the women of the story and retolds this brilliant saga through their eyes.

The tale is told from the views of the Priestess of Avalon Morgaine (Morgana Le Fey) and the Christian princess and future queen of Camelot Gwenhwyfar (Gwynivere).
