Summary

Once upon a time...

Recent college grad Emma Damon knows the Rose Room in Hartley Hall is off limits, which is exactly why she can't wait to get inside. Once she enters the forbidden room, Emma learns more about the history of the museum than she ever intended to know.

Waking up confused and shocked in 1816, all Emma wants is to return to her cozy home with flushing toilets and disposable razors. But when she's mistaken for someone else, Emma must pretend to be everything she's not.

About to be engaged to the Earl of Hartley's brother, Emma fails miserably at playing the role of a sophisticated lady. Hartley is determined to ensure that the quirky and adorable woman marries his brother - despite his ever-growing attraction to her. After loving and losing, he refuses to fall prey to the shackles of love. But as his desire for Emma increases, he knows he must forfeit his happiness for his brother's future. After all, there's no such thing as happily ever after. Or is there?

Great story after all!

When I first started this audible book I didn’t think it was going to be this good but it turned out to be a great book!

Really loved this!!!

Adoable romance with well developed characters. Sexy parts but no actual sex which I personally prefer. i listened to it non stop. definitely getting the next one.

just one thing though: The narrator early in Chapter 2 makes a big blunder they should fix. Narrator says M16 referring to the British Secret Service. Obviously a reading blunder since it should be M.I.6 (for Military Intelligence 6.... an M-16 is a rifle.)

She is suppose to be college educated

For a college educated woman she is very dense.
Are they sure she is a history major?

Loved It!

As a writer myself and a time travel enthusiast, I found this book to be charming, funny and captivating. Emma is such a contrast in the personality of Hartley, showing true to opposites attract. I smiled and even laughed out loud at times. Great book!

Oh, 1816!

It wasn’t too awful to read...I guess what I am trying to say you must really like reading history or like books about time travel in order to read it. I swear, who wants to be in the year 1816? It’s a pretty intense and interesting century. I love how Sariah Wilson had a way to do a full circle on this story. It’s good to have a little twist of it all. Sometimes, it’s good to just escape to a paranormal love fantasy. Just get ready of teasing, eye googling, and ballroom dances.

Disappointed

Great story with some adorable parts but the heroine was to me a stereotyped adolescent that made me cringe with the constant slang and persistent allusions to modern life knowing full well the someone in the 18th century would not understand. Frankly it made modern Americans sound stupid! The ending was OK but was also slightly sad.

Uggg 2nd time I tried

This is the second attempt to get through this book. I just can’t!

Why when the main charechter realizes they have traveled through time can this college educated dim wit who majored in history not simply figure out the appropriate non 20th century response. She knows nothing!
She not only talks uneducated and disrespectful for someone in her own time but in an obviously wealthy society where she is trying to deceive others Of her real identity, she can’t figure out that responding with “yeah, what’s up, ok” and other contemporary teenage slang is not appropriate. 🙄

And why would any high bred intelligent man find her endearing? Because ......he can converse with her, she brings something of intelligent value to the table? NOPE!

I found the storyline childish with non childish implications. No vulgarity which is a plus, but just too silly and immature with underdeveloped characters.
