Synopsis

She's finally met the man of her dreams–too bad he lives in a different century!

A devoted history buff finds the re-enactment of a pre-Victorian ball in London a bit boring…until a mysterious artifact sweeps her back in time to the real event, and into the arms of a compelling British lord.

Isabelle Rochon can't believe it when she finds herself in the reality of 1830's London high society. She's thrilled to witness events and people she's studied. But she may also have to survive without modern tools or career–unless she can find a way to return to her time. And then there's Viscount Lord Montagu, a man whose embrace curls her toes, but who has a dangerous agenda of his own.

Lord Phineas Montagu is on a mission to avenge his sister, and he'll stop at nothing, including convincing an alluring stranger to pose as his respectable fiancé. He's happy to repay her by helping her search for her stolen calling card case that brought her back in time. But he doesn’t bargain for the lady being his intellectual match–or for the irresistible attraction that flames between them.

They're both certain they know what they want, but as passion flares, Phineas must keep both himself and Isabella safe from unseen opponents, and she must choose when and where her heart belongs. Can they ever be together for good?

Don't miss the time travel romance USA Today called "a delicious twist on historical drama and romance."

    Why not an allusion to time travel in the title?

    Time travel aspect was very well done, also the mysteries. If I'd seen something alluding to time travel in the title, I'd have read it much sooner. Loved the book!

    Fun time travel romance

    I received a free copy of this ebook from InstaFreebie in exchange for my honest review. While attending an early 1800s-themed ball, Isabelle Rochon is accidentally transported back to 1830s London. As a history buff, she is thrilled and fascinated to observe life as it really was, but because she is competing for a promotion at work, she is anxious to return to her own time. Unfortunately, the card case she believes made her time travel possible has been stolen. Lord Phineas Montagu, a handsome and mysterious man meets the night of the ball, agrees to help her track down the thief in exchange for her posing as his fiancée in a bid to stave off the marriage-minded mamas and restore a degree of respectability to his somewhat tarnished reputation. But what happens when their fake courtship sparks a real flame? Will the notorious rake be ready to take a wife in truth? Will Isabelle give up the successful career she has worked so hard to build and her family in her own time to remain with Lord Momtagu? Thus delightful story is full of witty dialogue and hilarious and fresh takes on the fish-out-of-water theme so integral to good time travel novels. The incorporation of Montagu's revenge story and the reactions of other people who suspect Isabelle is a time traveler adds a lot of action to keep the plot exciting and unpredictable. Isabelle's persistent use of modern speech patterns highlights her difficulty fitting in to a time not her own, and the attention to detail in noting differences a time traveler would struggle to adjust to makes Isabelle's story more compelling. This is a fun read, and I am looking forward to Must Love Chainmail!
