Reese Hamilton has big plans to help make the world a better place and a new job lined up to help her do it. Before starting work, she heads to England for a Regency immersive experience. She doesn’t expect her best friend to invite her heart-destroying brother to join them, and two years hasn’t been long enough for Reese to forget him. Then fae magic rips them back to 1850. It’s a time when women have few rights. It’s also a time when a determined woman could make a difference, with the right man at her side. Reese finds she must make a choice between two men and two times.
Jem Taylor messed up big when he walked away from Reese to pursue his dream job. He hasn’t been able to forget her and jumps at his sister’s invitation. Suddenly hurtled into Victorian England, he has the chance to woo Reese again. But to do it, he’ll have to fight the magic that brought her to that time—and an Earl with the means to keep her there.

I enjoyed this book. When I started reading this I didn’t realize I knew anything about the series but I needed a time travel book for a reading challenge so I picked it up. I started reading and the premise of the book sounded so familiar I wondered if I’d read it before. I checked on GR and realized that I’d read another in the series so that made more sense. All the people are thrown back in time together and each book is about different characters so the beginning is similar in each.
The premise of the book is fun. I’m not really into time travel stories but this is fun and I can believe in fairies and magic so its all good.
I like that Reese is a strong woman and not willing to be pushed around by a male dominated society and she was able to let her beliefs/values make a better world for the people around her. There is a bit of a love triangle. Actually two love triangles, but it isn’t too bad. I would like a hea for each of the people that didn’t win their love in this book because they were all likable people and it is easy to care about them.
Sex: some kisses. Leering from creeps. Sexual assault attempt. A little innuendo about other’s activities.
Violence: yes. Violence against a woman. She uses self defense in return and also has a male defender. All suffer injuries but the perps get the worst of it. Also a female slaps a creep for leering.
