Cora Rey wanted a fresh start in life, but being thrown back in time to 1850 isn’t how she expected to do that. She discovers that Victorian England isn’t the pleasant social whirl Jane Austen led her to believe, but when in Rome—or in this case Twickenham… She’s determined to have the vacation of a lifetime, especially in the company of a certain duke.

Simon Tuttle never expected to become the duke of Hertfordshire, never wanted it, but now he is, and eligible women seeking a title consider him the next trophy to be taken in the marriage mart. A union of convenience is the most he hopes for due to the shame-filled secret he bears—until he meets Cora. Now, he imagines that a love match could be possible after all. Hiding his secret from society has been easy—hiding it from Cora proves impossible. Can Cora love a man like him despite learning the truth?

    Loved this time travel romance with Cora Rey and Mr. Duke–Simon Tuttle. Cora goes with her roommates, Reese and Kaitlyn, Kaitlyn’s brother and his best friend on a trip to England. The highlight of which was a week-long stay at Twickenham Manor where they would live like Jane Austen. The week culminates in a ball, and Cora joins her friends to explore Twickenham Manor. They end up in “the secret level” of the Manor, where they see a portrait of themselves. What a better time for a selfie, but while trying to fit everyone in the picture lightning flashes and when Cora awakens she discovers she’s in 1850 Victorian England! What’s a girl to do when she finds out she can’t go back home to the future) until the next full moon? If you’re Cora Rey, you decide to make the most of it.
    She meets Simon Tuttle, his friend Everett, Lucy Radnor, and May Cottrell and they become friends, participating in the many activities held at Twickenham Manor. Cora is taken with Simon’s good looks, she thinks he looks exactly like John Smith in Disney’s Pocahontas. Simon Tuttle, Duke of Hertfordshire, Earl of St. Albans is entranced by Cora Rey, the American. She’s unlike any of the women he’s been avoiding since his father and brothers’ deaths and he reluctantly became the latest catch of the Season. But Simon has a secret and wonders how Cora will feel about him when she learns the truth.

    *Update. I see now that there are other books already written about other characters so this all makes more sense to me…..

    I started reading this without knowing anything about the story. Seriously. Nothing except it was a romance. As I started reading my first thought was that it was another Austenland story and I felt a twinge of disappointment. How would the authors make it different enough to be interesting in comparison? And then suddenly, ZAP! We are in a different time period! Wow. I guess I should have looked up the book to see that it was a time travel novel. Totally took me by surprise. And not Austenland at all. (My ecopy didn’t have the Time Travel part of the title written big enough for me to notice it and I didn’t study the cover to discover it).

    I had mixed feelings while reading. I enjoyed the romance in general but kept feeling just a little thrown off by Cora’s modern language and behavior in an 1850’s world. It was a bit jarring but fun at the same time. She uses phrases and words that don’t fit the time period and is far too independent, spirited and opinionated. And that makes her lovable. Also, she is able to say things to people that no one else can because she comes from a world where women can do things. So when her future mother-in-law is rude, instead of taking it, Cora hands it right back to her. She says what I always wish the heroine would say.

    Also, Cora enables Simon to become the man that he always could be but had no support from his family. I delighted in his standing up for himself. And the letters they write to each other are sweet.

    The whole idea of time travel is boggling to me and the fairy magic explanation is as good as any in my mind. I choose to set aside all thoughts of reality in this aspect and just enjoy the story for what it is.

    I was a little confused by Cora traveling with her American friends but then they really aren’t part of the story. I think they are there just to set up being able to write about them in upcoming books. There are probably a number of things that don’t really make sense to me but I didn’t really care.

    Also, as much as I love reading books from this time period, I’m not sure that I could be happy living there knowing what there is in my present. I would despise all the clothes and rigidity in rules of society. Going back to a time when people died from totally curable things in our time would be difficult for me. I might enjoy going forward in time though. Maybe.
