She's finally met the man of her dreams - too bad he lives in a different century!
A devoted history buff finds the re-enactment of a pre-Victorian ball in London a bit boring...until a mysterious artifact sweeps her back in time to the real event, and into the arms of a compelling British lord.
Isabelle Rochon can't believe it when she finds herself in the reality of 1830's London high society. She's thrilled to witness events and people she's studied. But she may also have to survive without modern tools or career - unless she can find a way to return to her time. And then there's Viscount Lord Montagu, a man whose embrace curls her toes, but who has a dangerous agenda of his own.
Lord Phineas Montagu is on a mission to avenge his sister, and he'll stop at nothing, including convincing an alluring stranger to pose as his respectable fiancé. He's happy to repay her by helping her search for her stolen calling card case that brought her back in time. But he doesn't bargain for the lady being his intellectual match - or for the irresistible attraction that flames between them.
They're both certain they know what they want, but as passion flares, Phineas must keep both himself and Isabella safe from unseen opponents, and she must choose when and where her heart belongs. Can they ever be together for good?

The little details don't add up.
Did Angela Quarles change her timeline midway through? I enjoyed the story, but there are little details that really bugged me. She spent so much time emphasizing Isabelle's cell phone at the beginning and the details about the phone indicate she's probably from at least the early 2000's because it sounds like a smartphone. Isabelle also repeatedly talks about how things are supposed to change over the next 150 years while she's back in 1834, but then the dates given in the epilogue totally screw up the timeline. It's missing at least 40 years. She goes back to 1834, they're married for 30 years, and then she says she'll be born in another 80 years.... In the epilogue, Isabelle says that she was born in 1944 and would then travel back from 1973.... Her age would be right since she's supposed to be 29, but then how the heck is she supposed to have a smartphone that sounds like it's from the 2000's? It doesn't fit! I know the point of the story is to immerse yourself in the romance, but these details are super annoying.
