About the Author
An Amazon bestselling author, Nichole Van is an artist who feels life is too short to only have one obsession. In former lives, she has been a contemporary dancer, pianist, art historian, choreographer, culinary artist and English professor.
Most notably, however, Nichole is an acclaimed photographer, winning over thirty international accolades for her work, including Portrait of the Year from WPPI in 2007. (Think Oscars for wedding and portrait photographers.) Her unique photography style has been featured in many magazines, including Rangefinder and Professional Photographer. She is also the creative mind behind the popular website Flourish Emporium which provides resources for photographers.
All that said, Nichole has always been a writer at heart. With an MA in English, she taught technical writing at Brigham Young University for ten years and has written more technical manuals than she can quickly count. She decided in late 2013 to start writing fiction and has since become an Amazon bestselling author.
Nichole currently lives in Utah with her husband and three crazy children. Though continuing in her career as a photographer, Nichole is also now writing romance novels on the side. She is known as NicholeVan all over the web: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. Visit NicholeVan.com to sign up for her author newsletter and be notified of new book releases. Additionally, you can see her photographic work at photography.nicholeV.com and nicholeV.com

I hate romance books where the plot revolves around immature behavior or stupid misunderstandings that could be resolved with a 2-minute adult conversation. Thank goodness there was none of that here. Just two mature adult characters working through their emotions for each other and the situation in which they find themselves. I also love a romance that takes time to actually build a relationship between the characters. With this book, I really believed that Emme and James had a relationship that went deeper than just physical attraction. And James! What a fabulous hero. Honestly, one of my favorite romance heroes in a long time. I kind of fell a little bit in love with him myself. I loved that he was a real mature man with personality quirks, but not all alpha male and controlling, the way so many romance book heroes are. I also really appreciated that the book had some heat without it being graphic. It's so easy to go smutty to build the H/h relationship. It's so much harder to craft a real relationship like the author has done here.
And I also have to comment on the authors control of the historical period. She got it just right for me. I read a lot of Regency romance and I find myself frustrated when an author seems blissfully unaware of the societal conventions of the time period (it drives me crazy). On the other end, I also find myself losing interest in books that try too hard to be super authentic, as they tend to read like a Jane Austen novel without the witty narrator. This book struck a good balance for me. The author obviously has a strong understanding of the Regency era and I really felt like I had been transported back in time. But she relaxes dialogue a little, just enough to keep it true to the period but still make it more accessible modern audiences.
All in all, this was a 5-star read for me. The book felt like a much more expensive book. Can't wait for the next book in this series!
She attracts trouble. The unexpected always finds her. Emry (Emme) Wilde, (29), History Professor and world traveler, researches history as part of her job. She loves it. She's an intelligent, clever and witty young woman with short, dark curly hair and hazel amber eyes...eyes with a hint of green. Emme has a soft, creamy/pale complexion that's emphasized and made more ethereal by her dark hair and green/gold eyes. She's never married because she's never found the man who can give her the thrill that merely looking at a 200 year old picture, gives her. She's unable to emotionally connect with anyone, other than a 200 year old man in a picture.
He's bored with his boring life and aches for adventure. But if there were adventure to be had, he feels he'd probably be going in the wrong direction on the wrong day. James Knight feels like he was born for something more...but the unexpected never finds him. Until he finds Emme.
I completely enjoyed this sweet story (predictable though it may be) and in little time was quite invested... I felt like the author hit the ball outta the park... and it was told very...very well. It had enough drama to keep me on the edge of my seat and it was exactly what I needed...light and entertaining and perfect. There is a lot of attraction between our main characters, but very little interaction. This is a "sweet" story with zero romantic edge or intimate detail. The fun was in the attraction. Descriptions are so perfectly detailed that I was transported to a different era --- experiencing the scents and sounds and visuals. Emotions crescendoed so beautifully...all that was missing was the orchestra swelling in the background. Reading how a time traveler would grasp and experience wonders of a different era were told in explicit and gratifying detail --- placing me in their moment so exactly. And it was refreshing to read a solid romantic plot without erotica or premarital sex. And don't get me wrong...I'm no prude. I love erotica. It's just that for me, this story was a relaxing and engaging change.
