Wow. That is my first impression of this book. I knew it was a time travel romance, but I was not expecting the way it played out. I even had a hard time figuring out who was time traveling at first. This book really had me thinking about choices, too. I loved the way the author drew me in and made me want to finish this book in one sitting (I didn’t, because I didn’t have time). Ms. Abbey stays true to the time period in which the story takes place, so that makes it easy to read and know where you are in the book.
Rosemary is a great heroine who care deeply for her family and is plunged into being the mother to her two younger siblings. She has no experience in the west and was essentially a spoiled heiress. She does a great job of trying to figure out how to survive and run a cattle ranch and take care of her teenage brother and mentally challenged little sister. Nicolas is the typical bad guy turned hero. He has a heart of gold and watching him change and become the hero Rosemary wants him to be is heartwarming. This book deals a lot with choices and forgiveness and change. It has a very good lesson buried in the fun and adventure of the wild American west. I loved how Rosemary was the only one who could save him and it was her choice to make. The supporting characters where superb and well written. This book is clean and has great lessons without being preachy. Great read, you will love it.
"The Villain" is an historical time travel romance written by May Nicole Abbey. I rate this PG for some violence as the book deals with murder and violent crime. This book also deals with mental illness. Ms Abbey does a wonderful job depicting how people with mental illness were viewed by both family and community members. This book is also a romance, so there is kissing and marriage (with mention of married love and a pregnancy). If you like time travel books you will enjoy this book.

Here's a review for "The Villian" by May Nicole Abbey
I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
