She betrays his trust.
He acts as though she is beneath him.
But it could work if only they didn’t live over two centuries apart.
Jane Sullivan, expert researcher on the Georgian Era, is granted a two week trip for singles to a Jane Austen re-enactment house party, 2019. She plans to thoroughly enjoy herself, including perhaps find a man who shares her interests, all in the name of research.
Algernon, Duke of Ramsbury, 1817, escapes to Twickenham Manor for a house party and a two week break from his Duke-ly pressures. He has no idea that his agreement to try something new would give him a splitting headache and a journey through time to the year 2019.
Hearts connect; Fate might have been kind, but at what cost?
I am enjoying this time travel romance series. I was fooled into not liking some of the characters in this book that turned out to be okay in the end. There really isn’t a “bad guy” in the story. Everyone was essentially likable. The greater conflict is the fact that the love interests live 200 years apart. And that is of course an issue.
The whole concept of time travel and the possibility of changing history is baffling to me. So to enjoy the book I have to just set aside my preconceived notions of time and not worry about it. (I have the same problem with time travel movies.)
This is a fun read that is actually thought provoking at times. Which time period would you choose to live in? Especially interesting to think about as a woman since freedoms were limited for them in the past. And how would you react being thrown into a different time period? I think it would be easier to go back in time having had a chance to understand history, while moving to the future would be very confusing. So many things that had never been thought of before. Algernon seemed to adapt and have fun with it though. If you knew you were going back in time to stay, what would you most want to take with you?
