When antiques restorer, Rowena Lindstrom, purchases an armoire containing a hidden key and a "magic" mirror, she believes the handsome warrior prince waiting on the other side is some sort of elaborate joke, yet she cannot deny their connection seems bound by more than just the key and, as her love for Prince Caedmon grows, she agrees to join him in his realm. Prophecy intervenes in a way neither of them could have expected. Lost and alone in the Austiere Kingdom, Rowena struggles to find her place, and though she fights the heated advances of the dangerous Prince Caedmon, the attraction between them brings challenges much deeper than her troubled heart can recall.

He now retains the secret behind the key, and is the only one who understands its grim connection to his beloved Rowena. Yet their enemies to the north are merely one of many obstacles determined to see them fail and, to escape the clutches of the evil Wizard Gaelleod, Rowena and Caedmon flee to the future -- the one place Caedmon's worst fears are confirmed.… (lisätietoja)

These stories are fabulous, but if you don't like cliffhangers, read them all at once! The novellas, which are compiled in this collection, are the edge-of-your-seat-OMG-where-is-the-next-book-NOW kinds of endings. So if you don't like that kind of ending, then definitely get the compilation and enjoy the complete set of stories.

Rowena is just so funny and a gal I'd love to call friend. She's witty, funny and has a big heart.

Caedmon - OMG to die for!!! What a hunky hero from the 15th century!!! And he is just adorable when he is trying to impress Rowena with this horrible poem he wrote. LOL!! So funny!

YOU MUST BUY THIS BOOK NOW!!! Do it now! ( )

#1 Rowena's Key
Rowena's Key is the first story in 'The Golden Key Chronicles';it gives a whole new meaning to 'through the looking glass'. An adult fairytale full of humour, poignancy and passion it's a fun read. Adult fans of 'The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe' will devour this book.
Rowena an antique dealer goes against her professional instincts and buys an antiquated armoire from England because of its tenuous connection with her past. When it reveals its secrets she comes face to face with Caedmon a sexy prince who is hot enough to star in every woman's fantasy. Caedmon's language is ancient and strange with an urban edge.
The armoire comes complete with a golden key that makes Rowena, who Caedmon believes to be a powerful witch, key to the future of the fantasy kingdom.
With a great supporting cast of real and fantasy characters Rowena's key is entertaining escapism for an hour or two

#2 Candra's Freedom
This part of the story is set two years later when Rowena and Caedmon are living in the fantasy kingdom apart. Rowena is determined to gain her freedom and she shows her resourceful nature and admirable independence to achieve her aim against immeasurable odds. Tortured and imprisoned Caedmon fights his way back to his love. He finds a very different Rowena and little chance of reclaiming their lost love. There is lots of action, particularly good fighting scenes featuring Rowena but little romance except in Caedmon's memory. A great story to illustrate Rowena growing into her powers and destiny.

#3 Caedmon' Curse.
'Caedmon's Curse' is the third in The Golden Key Chronicles series; this is a fast paced fantasy romance full of sensual tension, larger than life characters and page turning action.
I hadn't read the second in the series 'Candra's Freedom' when I first read this book but this no way spoiled my enjoyment. Caedmon and Rowena's delightfully witty dialogue effortlessly fills in significant past events as they battle with their enemies and their magnetic attraction.
Caedmon attracts Rowena despite her distrust of his motives and memory loss. Their sexual chemistry coupled with losing him forever forces her to question why she is pushing him away. Rowena is a 21st century woman not in need of an alpha super hero but a partner who respects and supports her. Caedmon's fulfils this role admirably.
Full of important clues 'Caedmon's Curse' still leaves the reader with more questions than answers and desperate for the next instalment which is previewed at the end of the book.
A must read for lovers of fairy-tales

#4 Braedric's Bane.
This final story sees Rowena and Caedmon sure of their love and back in the modern world where Rowena first came from. There are some lovely and humorous reunion scenes with Oliver and Jon, sizzling passion between our two lovers and important clues to the prophecy. Back to the fantasy world for the last part of the story, with an epic battle, jaw dropping magic and a happy ever after? The well thought out ending leaves the way for further stories in this fantasy kingdom. A great final instalment of a cleverly written, engaging fantasy.

I received a copy of this book from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

The author, AJ Nuest, gave me a copy of this novel in exchange for my review.

One of the best elements of the time travel genre is that fish out of water adjustment that goes hand in hand with falling into another time. When Rowena falls through the veil and removes the key necklace, she loses all of her memory so we miss out on that period of adjustment but what Nuest does with her story is equally fun and engaging. No memories? Lost in a time where women are lower tier on the ladder (though the deity system is female based), learn to fight back. Measure up with the boys and then beat them down showing them that they’ll find no simple victim here. Rowena is woman, hear her roar.

The beautiful thing about the way that Nuest writes her characters is that we knew that Rowana would be strong and adaptable all along. She lost her parents at an early age and forged a means of support in a field where really anything can happen. When Caedmon appears in her armoire she’s fairly pragmatic. Someone is clearly playing a trick on her and fun is her middle name so she’s willing to play along. It helps, of course that Caedmon is an Adonis who with repeat visits clearly becomes smitten with the woman in the mirror. We see it and we believe it. The hero worship in the novel does, at times, get to be too much but as romance writing goes Caedmon and Rowena are strongly entertaining and believable.

Though a meaty 360 pages, the narrative flows well and the novel read quickly. There are storylines I’d like to see more developed such as the time Rowena is separated from Caedmon. There are blanks to be filled but “The Golden Key Chronicles” was written by bringing four previously released novellas "Rowena's Key," "Candra's Freedom," "Caedmon's Curse" and "Braedric's Bane," together and sticking to the rules of novella writing made the portions of the book periodical like and the shifts between quite smooth but left some questions unanswered. At the end of this novel, I would have loved to have known more and that is a very good sign of an interesting read.

“The Golden Key Chronicles” features likable characters in interesting situations. If you like adventure, romance, erotica or time travel fiction, pick this one up today. ( )
