Baron Eaglestone has spent a night in his former mistress's bed, to his disgust. He sneaks out of her home and, as he is walking across the Park, he heard the chase and the shot, so he tries to help Harriet. He prevents them from killing her or finding the papers, but she is badly injured, so he carries her home.
Harriet and Philip are thrown together, but the men aren't giving up so easily on trying to get the papers. A suspenseful, fun read!
I am loving this Author. I have read her first book 'Debutants don't date' also and can't wait for the next book.
story line being historical with the element of time travel thrown into the mix which made for a fun read. As a heroine I thought Harriet was brilliant, I felt I was right there with her as she struggled to remember her past, and outrun those who are after her for reasons unknown to her at that time. The novel has great pace and I looked forward to finding out exactly why Harriet was there... Philip was the perfect hero, and I thought the boudoir scenes were really well written. The ending took me completely by surprise and tied it up so well! If you like the Time Traveller's wife you'd like this book.

The two books can published to date can be read as stand-alone novels but if you are going to read them both it is probably best to read "Debutantes don't date" first as the hero and heroine of that book are supporting characters in this one and if you know their history it's easier to follow where they are coming from
This story begins in Regency London, apparently a year or two after the arrival of Grace Lancaster, the heroine of the previous book, in that era as the clocks were striking midnight to usher in the new year 1814.
The novel starts as Harriet, the heroine, is riding through high park on a mission for "The King" who is personally counting on her to deliver secret information and hotly pursued by his enemies.
(The reader may think at this point "which King?" - the reason that this era was called the Regency is that the Prince of Wales was acting as Regent because King George III of Great Britain was not of sound mind, and hence not in a position to count on anyone to deliver anything. The bad guys refer to Harriet as "The Princess" which does not make much sense at first either.)
Philip Blade, Baron Eaglestone, who is one of the closest friends of the hero of the first book (Lord Bingham) is making his way home through Hyde park in the very early morning when he sees a group of people on horseback riding dangerously fast through the park. He realises that in fact three men are chasing a lady just as one of them draws a firearm and shoots her horse, sending both crashing to the ground.
Fearing that the men are about to murder her, Philip attempts to intervene: not wanting a confrontation, the men make themselves scarce leaving behind a dead horse and a badly concussed woman.
When she eventually regains consciousness, Harriet cannot remember her last name, who she is, or what she was doing in London. And some of the fragments of memory she does have do not seem appropriate to this place and time - why would it be normal for a room to be illuminated by a "light bulb" hanging from the ceiling rather than candles?
Meanwhile the bad guys who attacked Harriet in Hyde Park have not gone away. And her presence in Lord Eaglesfield's home, where he took her to recover from her injuries, is beginning to cause a risk of scandal ...
This is an entertaining, well-written and funny novel. The author has included some very strong hints about what lies in the future of certain characters which make me almost certain she is planning to make the series at least a trilogy. If you like "Damsel in distress" you will probably like the first book in the series, "Debutantes don't date" and vice versa.
