Falling in love with an Earl in 1815 was the easy part. The hard part? Leaving him behind.
Evaline Johansen, daughter of mega billionaire tycoon feels isolated and alone until she stumbles upon a portrait gallery and sees herself hanging on the wall. The trouble is, she’s never been there before and doesn’t know the artist.
Lord Oliver Hereford doesn’t know what to do with this new, outspoken, energetic woman who has taken the ton by surprise. She may be London’s new sweetheart, but will he succumb to his initial attraction?
When his confirmed bachelorhood is challenged by the one woman who can, Lord Hereford doesn’t know he’s headed for a much greater choice than whether or not to love.
Rating: Mild. Mild kissing.
The Twickenham Time travel series has been fun to read. I’ve enjoyed all those I’ve read, which isn’t all of them, but I have read and enjoyed both by Ms. Johnson. It is rather entertaining to watch the characters that have come from a different era adapt (or not) to their surroundings and also fun to watch those around them react to how different they are. I think it was realistic that Oliver was enthralled by Eva since she is different from all the other women but also hesitant because she doesn’t really fit the mold that he would have grown up expecting.
This book was different from others I’ve read in the series because 1, it didn’t have Aunt Nellie saying “Time is a fuzzball” and 2, she isn’t always accurate in hitting the right time. (Maybe it happened in some that I haven’t read yet?)
I liked the characters and rooted for them to figure out how to make it all work. It is a sweet, clean romance that entertains.
I had a couple unanswered questions at the end but they weren’t vital to the storyline.
No sex, language or violence
