Believe by Victoria Alexander


Historical Romance/Time Travel/Paranormal

ISBN: 9780061728839

Reviewed by Talia Ricci




Professor Tessa St. James does not believe in Camelot, King Arthur, Merlin, or Lancelot.  She teaches her students that the legend of King Arthur is just that, a legend and has nothing to do with fact.  She doesn’t believe in love and she doesn’t think love will ever find her which is okay – she is pretty content.  Looking forward to a sabbatical to Greece, she finds herself in the days before she is supposed to leave researching a book about Merlin in the library.  But something is not right with the book because every single time she opens it, she finds something new that she didn’t know before.  What is Merlin trying to tell her? And why would he try and tell her anything since he is a fairy tale?

I struggled with this review because to say much more about Believe would be to give away the story.  Tessa does find a knight in shining armor, but I am going to keep his name to myself.  Tessa and her man fall in love and are willing to do anything to stay together.  However, fate is a funny thing and Merlin is more than predominant with his sayings and predictions. Just when I lost hope, a surprise ending to Believe made ME believe in romance and eternal love.  I am so glad this wonderful historical time travel has been re-released.  It made me laugh, tear up, and smile – just as I remember doing when it was released in 1998.  Now that is a timeless romance!
