Publisher's Summary

Sent back in time to Victorian England to stop the invention of a deadly weapon, Helen Foster knows the job looks too easy: All she has to do is go to an auction, buy the weapon plans, and destroy them, and she'll save millions of people back in her own time. And even if she spends the rest of her life as a spinster stuck in the English countryside with a plethora of cats, changing the future is worth it.
Then she meets Edward Clifton, duke of Somervale, the man she's supposed to blackmail. He is one of the most powerful men in the land, so handsome and cold that debutantes have been known to faint in his presence. After one meeting, Helen will be thrilled to never see his royal (and quite spectacular) backside, ever again.
But as her mission falls apart and danger closes in, Helen has no choice but to turn to the one man powerful enough to help her not just change the future, but survive the night.
This is the first of two books in Helen's series. Please be aware that the swearing is pervasive, the sexual tension blistering, and the historical details have not been taken too seriously.

Well.... that was different!

Let's see.... its the year 2082, The world is still fighting Nazi occupied Europe, Helen is a genetically altered soldier. ...( modified thru experiments meant to keep up with the germans.... can't let them to be the first to discover something, right?) She is the singular person who can travel thru time and live. Thus she ends up in London in the 1800's and with (can you guess?) a duke! So that she can prevent plans for a super weapon from falling into the hands of the germans. And if you can get past all of that then you have a fairly transparent plot that is delivered to you with a pause half way through so that you need to buy the second installment to get to the conclusion of the story. ( hopefully!)
That said.... it was done well enough that I will listen to book two. I mean.... how much more bizarre can it get before the happy ever after arrives, right? (knock on wood, salt over my shoulder, fingers crossed (you'll understand...).)

NARRATOR; Excellent. Great voices with personality, individuality, and authentic sounding accents.

HEAT FACTOR; Scorching without being pornographic or erotica.

LANGUAGE: Crude American slang and obscenities truly stand out in 19th century london!

Fun story, narration was easy to listen to. Nothing like a bad narrator for audio recordings but this one was very pleasant.

unexpected pleasure

didn't know what to expect but this turned out to be quite interesting. it's about time travel. a bit of romance,suspense, and espionage in a way. Didn't really like the ending because it makes you having to get the second part ( which I have done already) to find out what happened. Good narrator and amusing in parts. overall worth reading. I enjoyed it.

A great start to the series.

What did you like most about A Lady out of Time?

This was a very entertaining read. It has humour, romance and a little bit of suspense. Can't wait to listen to more.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked the Duke. He is a likeable and well rounded character. I liked the banter between him and Helen.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The way the story ended was quite moving. It didn't end quite the way I was hoping but it sets the scene for more adventures and romance.
