    PENETRATED MY HEARTWhen the bride, Emma Miller, decides that she and her bridesmaids need that one last girls trip before the wedding, they go to Bolivia to Salar de Uyuni, and they start on an exciting adventure. Staying at Palacio de Sal and touring what is known as the world's largest mirror and going to Isla de los Pescadores, known as the Island of the Fish. Emma climbs some rocks to get a better picture and disappears and meets a wizard Amaru who says many strange things to her. Giving her an antique mirror, she is transported back to sixteenth century England and there she meets Lord Ashton Colyns. He finds her shocking but refreshing. These two strangers, from different time periods, are drawn towards each other. Can Emma visualize her past, stand still and let the time roll forward from behind her? Don't think about tomorrow, look forward to yesterday.

    I am always distrustful of people who say they are marrying for logical reasons and not that heart-thumping, pulse-quickening, ecstatic LOVE, and this story tells why: you just haven't met him (or her) yet. In this case, our heroine travels much farther than the originally intended Bolivia to find her heart's desire. Wonderful story. Loved it!

    This is a short time-travel romance novella. It was just an okay read. I knew that i was going to have to give the author some slack because of the book being so short but I just did not enjoy it a whole lot. It seemed like bam all the sudden she was in love and happy in her new life. Just not very relatable story for me. Heres hoping the next one is better.

    A nice, quick-to-read novella. It was too short to have much substance, but for a quick-read, it fits the bill decently enough.The story kept me entertained - mostly - for the time it took to read this novella, but I must admit that even though I just finished it a few minutes ago, I cannot recall the names of the two main characters. :-(I definitely enjoy the plotline, but there are just too many holes left in the story. Also, the characters were FAR too accepting of the goings-on for characters who claim to be more intellectually inclined and being motived by their brain and not their heart.

    A lovely short, time-travel story. I read this in one sitting to find out if it is the heart or head that wins. Emma has a fiancé and goes to Bolivia with her girl friends for that last holiday before getting married. She manages to slip back a few hundred years and meets a charming Lord. Head or Heart?

    Mirror of Love is the first book I’ve read by Samna Ghani and I was hooked from the first page.Emma has always wanted to visit Salar de Uyuni in South America and right before her wedding seemed like the perfect opportunity. Her fiancé reluctantly agrees to let her go and off she travels (along with her three best friends) to this historical monument.A chance meeting with a stranger (and a magic mirror) transports Emma through time and into the arms of Lord Ashton. Ashton is somewhat of an enigma to Emma yet she can’t stop thinking about him.Lord Ashton likes Emma immediately and romance soon blossoms between them. When Lord Ashton asks Emma to help him with a delicate situation, she’s hesitant to help him. His charm wins her over and soon she is introduced to Henry Tudor and Anne Boleyn. Can she help Lord Ashton without losing her heart?I loved this sweet romance and the only thing I would improve upon was that it was longer. It’s a short novella (only 58 pages). I read it in one sitting and the author weaves a gem. Complete with historical characters, beautiful setting and a simple plot, Samna Ghani makes me wish for my own magic mirror.If you love time travel romance with dashes of historical places and people, pick up this short story. You’ll swoon, just like me.I can’t wait to read more by this author!Favorite Character:Emma. Being thrust into Tudor England is difficult enough but Emma is quick on her feet and lovable as a heroine. She’s quick-witted, down-to-earth and has a propensity to get into trouble. “Off with her head.” laughs I loved everything about her from her logical viewpoint on modern-day love to the way she realizes what’s right in front of her.Favorite Quote:“There was something different about him today. He seemed more intense, more focused on her, making it difficult for her to concentrate.”My Rating: 4.5 stars

    I love this story! Emma Miller is more excited about going on her dream vacation to Bolivia with her girlfriends than marrying her fiance, Ethan. When she and her pals visit the Salar de Uyuni, Emma gets lost and meets a mysterious man named Amaru. She then wakes up in a strange place and finds herself drawn into palace intrigue at the court of King Henry VIII. Luckily for her, the sexy and sweet Lord Ashton is there to help her. Emma and Ashton's relationship is clean and romantic. He's a very understanding man, especially when she tell him her big secret. His sister and nephew, Henrietta and Jeffery respectively, are flamboyant characters who butt heads with Emma. Anne Boleyn certainly doesn't like Emma, either, but the king is infatuated with her. What's a girl to do? I love the history and details in this book. It's evident the author knows this time period and she wrote a wonderful, descriptive short story.5 Stars Disclaimer – Thank you, Samna Ghani, for sending me an ebook copy for an honest review.

    Time travel romance fans will find Mirror of Love is a good novella-length story with a nice dose of history. It's got a headstrong, independent and quite feisty heroine along with an slightly aloof, always sarcastic hero. Everything in the story moves very quickly, which for me made it difficult to accept the attraction that spills so fast into a relationship between Emma and Ashton. While it is a novella, I still found the almost insta-love between the two a bit too sudden, especially when neither knows hardly anything about the other.Aside from that, we get a fun look at Henry Tudor and Anne Boleyn and get to see Ashton come to Emma's rescue in a very alpha-male way. For me, I would have liked to see a bit more character development, which I think would only have been possible if this were a longer story...which would have also given the opportunity to stretch out Emma and Ashton's relationship to make them falling for each other a little more likely than the virtually instant love we see here.Mirror of Love was a nice, quick escape and for me was a 3.5-star read.

    I was given this story as a review copy and it's an interesting concept to get lost in on a rainy afternoon. Emma is fast approaching her wedding to Ethan, but decides to have one last girls' trip to Bolivia, as you do, before taking the plunge. There, she is given some magic mirrors and plunges back in time to court with Henry Tudor and Anne Boleyn.It did make me think about what era I would like to go to and how I would cope if I did. Events at court take some amusing turn as we see that modern day women and those of Tudor times are not that much different when someone is after their man.This is a short story and it moves very quick. For me that left a few things unresolved and I would have liked to have seen it go a little further.
