It has been a very long time since I was this excited about a novel. Jennifer Macaire`s novel, Time for Alexander, is one of the best books I have read in ages.

The story opens with Ashley, a time travel journalist preparing to take a small jaunt back in time to interview Alexander the Great. Now, who wouldn’t want to spend a little time with one of greatest men in history and it doesn’t hurt that he is also reported to be one of the best looking as well. However, Ashley’s trip does not go exactly as planned. When she misses her chance to return to the future, Ashley must learn to deal with life in 333 B.C. Alexander believes that Ashley is the daughter of a god and is immediately attracted to her, but in the midst of conquering the Middle East it is difficult to find time for love. Together these lovers travel throughout Mesopotamia and try to come to terms with their relationship in the midst of recorded history.

This book captured my attention from the first paragraph and the story just got better and better. Time for Alexander is well written and the characters come to life in the mind of the reader. This novel is written from Ashley’s perspective, which is a unique change from most romances and provides a strong connection between the reader and the characters that is well designed by the author. The history fascinated me and was well integrated into the storyline.

Time for Alexander is full of intrigue, love, loss, destruction, and death, all of the things that make a book wonderful and exciting. I was so caught up in this book that I finished it in a day! The only down side to this book is that it ends abruptly and the reader must wait for book two to discover what happens to Ashley and Alexander; I can hardly wait for the sequel to be released! This book has become one of my all time favorites and I recommend that all romance lovers read this one.
