Book Description

October 1999

In order to procure the cash necessary to rebuild his estate, the Earl of Allsbrook decided to barter his title and his future: he would marry the willful daughter of a wealthy merchant. True, she was pleasing in form and face, and she had an eye for fashion. Still, deep in his heart, Henry wished to marry for love.

As a modern woman, Wilhemina March was leery of the importance her brother put upon marriage. She certainly never dreamt of being wedded to an earl in Georgian England or of a fairy debt that might give her just such an opportunity. But suddenly, after one midsummer night’s prayer and a sweet kiss in a long ago time and a faraway place, Elle saw that the much ado was about something after all.

More About the Author

Lisa Cach is the award-winning author of more than twenty-five romantic novels and novellas, ranging across sub-genres from Paranormal, Historical, Contemporary, and Erotica, to Young Adult. She is a two-time finalist for the prestigious RITA Award from the Romance Writers of America.

Lisa Cach was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, where she still lives today, somewhere between the perpetual blanket of clouds and the beds of moss and fern.

Lisa's professional background includes teaching conversational English in Japan, several years working the graveyard shift on a mental health crisis line, and teaching writing while sailing to the Amazon, Morocco, Russia, and everywhere in-between aboard the MV Explorer -- the ship used in the Semester at Sea college program. She has hiked the foothills of the Himalaya, trekked the jungles of Borneo, roamed the Carpathian Mountains of Romania, and paddled the Dordogne River of the Perigord Noir, in France. She has sailed the Caribbean as a working crew member of a research schooner, and through the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands on a small ship.

Her favorite book has always been Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre," while the only book to ever give her nightmares was Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Hound of the Baskervilles." If you can recommend a good ghost story that sends shivers up the back of the neck, she's all ears.

When not writing, she dabbles in drawing, piano, gardening, and cooking... all of which make her sound as if she belongs in the 19th century, but she'd miss the internet if she were stuck there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Fun, Fun February 28, 2000
By Valerie
"The Changeling Bride" is the story of Elle, a young woman somewhat disenchanted with life at the end of the 20th Century in America. She makes a wish that is surprisingly granted, sending her back in time and across the Atlantic to find what was missing in her life.
Lisa Cach describes Elle's adventures and struggles with delightful humor and creativity. Elle is a modern woman, willing to change somewhat to fit into her new life in the 1790s, but who will not compromise when it comes to speaking up her mind. The environment will have to adapt to her also! And so we join the heroine as she ever so imaginatively introduces modern concepts such as pizza and birth control to 18th Century England.
"The Changeling Bride" is highly entertaining and a most enjoyable read. Elle's adventures traveling across time have transported me along in a journey of my own, out of the very limiting reality we all live in into a world of endless possibility, where anything can happen. What a joy! It was as if I also traveled in time, back to my younger years when believing in magic, fairies and wishes come true was simply the way life worked itself out. How refreshing!

This is the first book I've read by Lisa Cach and it won't be the last. I really enjoyed this book. I liked the fact that the hero was more like an average man. He wasn't extremely tall or very muscular. The heroine was a modern woman who deals quite well with the fact that she has been flung back in time to a period where women were under strct constraints and I'm not just talking about the clothes.
The story starts off with Wihelmina, or Elle as she likes to be called, given a note by a homeless person in modern times. She doesn't even look at the paper until she is out with her dog on a walk. The note reads "Coupon Good for: one free husband. Redeem at will". She looks up into the sky and waves the coupon states the she wants to redeem her coupon. She thinks its just a joke when all of the sudden she is surrounded by fairies and they transport her back in time to be the wife of Henry. Henry's bride to be Eleanor is who she is replacing. Henry has no idea anything is different because they apparently look the same. She decides to go along with it so that she can at least get the wedding. I mean every girl dreams of a big wedding with all the trimmings. Then she will go back to her time. Only that doesn't happen. She seems stuck in 1790 with a husband who she doesn't know but is very attracted to. Henry doesn't quite know what to make of his bride. She doesn't seem like the person he met before but he likes this person better. He is puzzled by her lack of knowledge about running a household and her ideas about birth control but can't help but fall for her. Elle fights her feelings for Henry and when she finally lets him into her heart she thinks that she must leave him and go back to her time.
This tale is wonderfully written and it made for a very enjoyable read. I look forward to other books by this author.

"The Changeling Bride" takes a modern woman and puts her in the midst of a century long past. This is a delightful concept for me, as a regular romance novel reader. After all, what are we doing when we read stories of this genre if not quietly longing for a different type of world, and putting ourselves in the place of the heroine? This book uses a traditional romance format and twists it - using a bit of magic - so that the fantasy becomes a bit more plausible.
Ms. Cach also addresses several things in the plot that are conspicuously absent from other historical romance novels I have read, yet have always wondered about in the back of my mind. Namely, the issue of birth control, type of food available, and those embarrassing but necessary bodily functions. She attacks each subject with a touch of humor as well as practicality that makes for an interesting and entertaining tale.
The best thing about the book, however, is the heroine herself. Because she is from our day and age, one can relate to her with ease. She is not a tiny-waisted and naive virgin, but a robust, healthy and somewhat cynical woman of modern America. We all dream about another day and age, but what would we do if we were truly given the `opportunity' to experience it? "The Changeling Bride" offers us a glimpse into what the realities of the 1700's were, while maintaining the romantic aura necessary for a truly good read.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to other titles by Ms. Cach.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful read! March 1, 2000
By L. P.
This story of a modern woman from the Northwest struggling to make sense of life and love in Georgian England is witty and entertaining from start to finish. The heroine's predicament (thanks to some misguided but well-intentioned fairies) results in a temporal culture clash with very amusing results. The author thoroughly explores many of the challenges a modern woman would face when placed in such a situation. One of the great strengths of the book is the heroine Elle, who must somehow try to fit her independent, modern worldview into the realities of a more tradition-bound society while staying faithful to her true self. I found her a wonderful character that I could easily relate to. While Ms. Cach plays lightly with some of the "historical romance" conventions, the romance that develops between the two main characters is both genuine and passionate.
