Book Blurb:

She’s finally met the man of her dreams. There’s only one problem: he lives in a different century.


A mysterious artifact zaps Isabelle Rochon to pre-Victorian England, but before she understands the card case’s significance a thief steals it. Now she must find the artifact, navigate the pitfalls of a stiffly polite London, keep her time-traveling origins a secret, and resist her growing attraction to Lord Montagu, the Vicious Viscount so hot, he curls her toes.

To Lord Montagu nothing makes more sense than keeping his distance from the strange but lovely Colonial. However, when his scheme for revenge reaches a stalemate, he convinces Isabelle to masquerade as his fiancée. What he did not bargain on is being drawn to her intellectually as well as physically.

Lord Montagu’s now constant presence overthrows her equilibrium and her common sense. Isabelle thought all she wanted was to return home, but as passion flares between them, she must decide when her true home—as well as her heart—lies.


MY REVIEW: 4 captivating stars!

Ms. Quarles has a tremendous talent for writing.  This time travel historical romance makes for a captivating read.  It left me wishing the book went on forever.  The dialogue, all the charming wit, and amazing sex scenes make the story a page turner. Her name should be beside Karen Marie Moning and Diana  Gabaldon.

The suddenness of the kiss stunned Isabelle.  His strong hands, cradling her face firmly.  His body, pinning her to the wall.


Probably the sexiest thing anyone had ever done to her.  So manly. But she didn’t have time to analyze it, oh no.  Right now, it was all she could do not to let her knees buckle as his mouth moved on hers and sent delicious shivers up and down her whole body….

Let me say, anyone who can write a time travel romance and make it interesting, my hat’s off to you!  It has to be a tricky piece to write. I love time travel books SO much if they are written as well as Ms. Quarles wrote this one.  And this cover… SO gorgeous! Love, love, love!


A soft click behind her sent warm, prickly bubbles zipping through her.  She turned.  And gazed at the man she’d chosen.  The life she’d chosen.  Her heart careened around, accompanying the bubbles in fluttering anticipation, providing an insistent beat, as if every particle of her were too afraid to be still.  His eyes pierced right through her and rendered her legs into limp noodles.

“Hi,” she whispered.  All the fluttering bits paused.  Pulsed once.  Twice.

His mouth quirked. “Miss Rochon.”

She stumbled forward a step, but he was at her side in three paces before she could go any farther.

He crushed her against his strong, warm body.  “Do not do that to me again, Isabelle.  You are my life.  Without you, I am only an empty husk.”


He pulled apart slightly and rested his forehead against hers.  “I speak only the truth.  I love you so much, I cannot imagine life without you, ” his voice thick, ragged.

Her heart felt as if it were near the ceiling, too light, too full, too big to be contained in her body.  “Neither could I,” she whispered as he captured her mouth in a kiss of possession. 

I found myself hooked just on the first few pages.  It is filled with adventure, mystery, and characters who will steal your heart.  I cannot wait to read another book by this author.

Thank you, Angela!
