The Making of a King: A Medieval Time Travel Romance is the second book in the Coeur de Lion Series by Pamela Todd-Hunter, a gorgeous treat for fans of paranormal romance with elements of time travel. Falling in love is not part of Alixandra Evans's bargain when she is transported to twelfth-century France, but Richard, Duke of Aquitaine, has cast his spell on her. But when coerced by the king to convince Richard to acknowledge Hal as the rightful heir to the throne, she courts Richard's wrath and sets the scene for intrigue, pitting Richard against his brother. The conflict escalates with Hal's sudden death. Alix discovers that she has changed Richard’s history, something she never intended to do. Is it too late? Can she go back and correct what has been done, win back Richard, and usher change into Richard’s history?
This is a cleverly plotted and skillfully written story with historical elements, intrigue within the royal palace, and a deadly game of power. The characters are well-developed and fully drawn. Alixandra is an emotionally and psychologically rich protagonist and I enjoyed how her delicate position is written. She is aware that a mistake can alter history and the biggest mistake she has committed has been in falling for Richard. The conflict is written with ingenuity and the author explores a culture that readers will revel in with colorful and sophisticated characters and so much at stake for these characters. The Making of a King: A Medieval Time Travel Romance is a story with a powerful premise; the writing is atmospheric and Pamela Todd-Hunter deftly builds the tension and the suspense, forcing readers to keep turning the pages.
