? A bit confusing needs more outlining, issues with narrative arc.

Twyla Turner has written legit books. She's a writer who somehow knows how to make annoying female leads really likeable, sometimes! The whiney woe is me h with low self-esteem is a common trope. Okay. But I was very confused about the flow of this novel. The time warp is used as a main plot device but doesn't get fully fleshed out. I'm not sure if this is a spoiler but the time warp is the glue to make or break the relationship with h and H and I don't know how the heck the thing exists or where it randomly came from as a reader. She should have done some research added a mythos or something. Loose ends in Paranormal are much harder to recover from. The h is also not loveable despite her reasonable flaws (scar, overweight, orphan, brown female). Nothing is worse than a frumpy doormat who gains confidence after sex with an alpha. Also, chooses to muck the stalls(?) as a sign of strength and personal growth. Just no. The Hero had potential, was actually likeable too bad for him and his wishy washy modern female. The whole book needs to be more well thought out, the evil nemesis is too easy but the main nemesis is whiney, complaining, h who threatens to leave the hero constantly even though she doesn't know how she got in viking world in the first place. I won't say this is my last Twyla because I try to support IR writers in general, but she needed to spend more time working this book out. Sorry. Please research and spend time thinking things through in the paranormal category. If you want something to read that makes you hot then okay, but if you want depth of emotion and event/character development refer back to some of her first books.
