Book Description

GOLD FEVER TOOK AUSTRALIA BY STORM DURING THE 1850s. IMAGINE GOING BACK IN TIME KNOWING WHERE THE GOLD WAS FOUND. THIS IS ADRIAN O'SHEA’S DILEMMA. HIS KNOWLEDGE MIGHT JUST JEAPORDISE HIS ENTIRE FUTURE EXISTENCE.

Adrian O’Shea has just had the worst day of his life. Not only has his fience dumped him, his business has gone bankrupt. AND he finds himself 150 years in the past, taking the place of his great, great grandfather of the same name.

Adrian soon learns that he has been returned to the past to fix up the mess his forefather was making of his life. The original Adrian O’Shea was a drunkard, dragging his beautiful wife Cassandra into poverty with him.

Cassandra, recovering from a painful miscarriage, begins to see a new side to her husband, a man she’d been close to hating, and wonders if perhaps their marriage might stand a chance after all.

But there are people who want Adrian dead. Trying to stay alive becomes as big a struggle for him as trying not to fall in love with the charming and gentle Cassandra, who is, after all, another man’s wife.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than expected 14 Aug. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another cheap book for kindle that sounded okish so i bought it. I enjoyed it far more than i thought i would - the characters both in past and present were very beleivable and the romance was gentle passion and well written. I'm not sure I'd have paid over £4 for it or a similar but for the price this was ecellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different 7 July 2013
By ALLOYD
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This historical romance is slightly different than most as it is about time travel. I recommend this book for light easy reading that has characters that are both believable and likeable. With an unusual twist at the end, what more could one want ? I shall be looking out for more books by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Time Travel 12 Feb. 2011
By 317537 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I looked at this book even before I had my kindle. Over the past 5 months I have come back to it to see if there were any reviews and there never were so I finally decided as it only cost 99 cent, I might as well give it a try. I am so glad I did. I found myself reading a half a chapter because I had 5 extra minutes here and there, I kept coming back to it. There are a few areas that could be polished, but overall it was a great story. I am still not sure why nobody else has done a review in all this time. I am not one to write reviews on every book I read, but felt that maybe there were others that were just waiting for someone to say it was good. I will definitely read this one again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Liked the premise, but that's about it. 19 May 2011
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hate to be the first one star review, but maybe if I write this others will have more opinions to go by and get a broader perspective. I can't believe the paper back is 14.99 - Kindle was .99 and I still feel cheated! I really liked the premise, but the actual writing and story line was just "lacking", so much. I kept reading hoping it would get better and it just got worse. I really wanted to like it, but. wow, it was bad. Here are a few reasons:

- Poor editing, at least on the digital version. I find that truly detracts from any story no matter how good (and more so when it's not so good).

- There was suppossed to be this sexual tension and subsequent sense of falling in love between the two characters and it just wasn't there. He avoided her and they barely spoke. Her family treated him horridly (based on his great great grandfather's previous treatment of her), and she basically went along with it. They never really spoke, so where's the love? Even when she believes he's a different person (which happened way too easily), they still never had the actual falling in love - they just were, and then the were in love. Lame.

- He lookd like his great great grandfather so much that only the height and build are a bit off and no one notices? Really? People tell me I look just like my mom, and yet, if you were to put us together at the same age, we would look related but not enough to pass for one another. Yet he is practically an exact replica almost how many generations later? Lame. Then it happens again later (won't say how, but really, what are the odds?). Lame.

- The use of cliches and colloquialisms in writng, especially narration of a story line, is just poor writing. Characters speaking in them can be justified if it is done to make a point or to embellish a time period, but if it is done repeatedly or anachronistically it just detracts from the story line and weakens the writing. It's also freaking annoying! :)

- The end is just......ok, lame. I sense a pattern. So, yeah, if you were to ask me to sum up my review in one word, I guess we know what it would be. I'd go on about the ending, but I don't want to ruin it for anyone who still wants to read it. I do think the ending is just wrong though, and it harkins back to my sentiments about them truly being "in love". Well, maybe she was, but him, not so much.

If you love time travel romance, the best I've ever read is "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon. An incredible book. An amazing series. It's not .99 cents, but It's worth every penny it costs for digital or hardcover. It's the quintessential time travel romance. Ah, I think I'll go read that series again....

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting and endearing take on time traveling... 16 April 2011
By MissMerlot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book that I have read by Emma Daniels. Despite it needing better editing (several misspellings) I found this book easy to enjoy. The story wasn't drawn out; the plot pacing appropriately timed. I would have liked to see a better glimpse of the growing relationship between the hero and heroine but I assume it was necessary to limit it because of the story ending.

Sometimes I come across writers and they aren't as detailed with the characters, the plot, etc, but somehow they know how to combine the right amount of elements to make a great story...Emma Daniels has done it with Gold Fever and I'm going on a whim (from a glimpse of another book she has written) that she knows how to capture and keep an audience.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read...but... 31 May 2011
By SingingSue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I actually enjoyed this book - up to the ending. The story was as plausable as any time travel book - but then, I like time travel, so I suspend belief and just enjoy the fairy tale.
The characters were interesting and the plot carried through. But the ending? Yes, it was a happy ending, but after a whole book of the main characters getting to know each other, suddenly the last chapter is kind of a "wham, bam, thank you ma'am" ending. I would like to have seen more print devoted to the main characters as they are presented at the end. I couldn't believe it when I realized that "that's all there is, folks!" A real disappointment. Otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Interesting But Soft Ending 29 Dec. 2011
By Sunday S. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
About the book:
Adrian O'Shea just learnt his fiance dumped him for his own brother, Mark, a worthless man who has already taken the family business into near bankruptcy. Despondent, Adrian drops into a local bar but as he leaves, he passes out only to wake later lying on a barroom floor. But it's not the bar he remembered from earlier that night. As the bouncer drags him out, Adrian can't stand, feeling like he has been beaten. Outside the bouncer puts him in a horse drawn cart. And so begins the new life for Adrian.

The next day he wakes, still in the cart, in front of his grandparents old house, though it doesn't look quite right. When he hears a door slam, he looks up to find a beautiful young woman. Even after he meets the girl, he doesn't know where he is. A trip to town increases his confusion - people he doesn't know call him by name.

Eventual Adrian realizes he in in the past, filling in for his great, great, grandfather Adrian and the girl he is so attracted to is actually his great, great grandmother Cassandra. Adrian now has three problems, his attraction to his great, great grandmother, how to get back to his own life, and finding out who is trying to kill him.

My take:
Normally I don't read Romances because there is so little story to hang all that sensual, sexual tension and attraction on. But occasionally there is a real gem. Good Fever is one of those. From almost the beginning, I sympathized with Adrian. While many may also sympathize with Cassandra and I did like her, my heart stayed with Adrian. I understand him.

I like the characters in this book. Cassandra is a strong woman for the times, though not as strong as women of today. She does lean on her family but it is reasonable given it is the 1800's. Cassandra's father is another character I could identify with and probably know people just like him. (Maybe me?) This is one of the compelling parts of Gold Fever. Many of the characters are real enough the reader can relate to them easily.

The plot is not deep nor are there any real twists. The attempted murderer is not hidden from the view of the reader. If there is anything the author could have improved on, it would have been making the plot more intricate and the end less stock. Never fear, however, the read is still good, particularly if you normally read Romances.

I do have one caveat. The sexual scene about 64% into the book is extremely graphic. When I was a child, such a scene would have been considered x-rated. I suspect this is common in today's romance novels but I do want my readers to be aware it is there.

The other thing I would have really appreciated is the author giving us more story about the modern day characters at the end of the book. The ending was a bit too pat for my liking.

I did enjoy the read and would suggest it to anyone who likes Romance. I purchased it for $1 at the Kindle store and it was worth every penny.
