This is a book one in how ever many.. the hook to get you to purchase the rest of the story. It has no ending but it does leave you with a bad taste of her being ordered to not see him again.. which just doesn't make any sense.
Premise was very interesting, but it just didn't work for me. The details didn't work, the behavior was inconsistent with what was necssart. Weren't there better ways of demonstrating that one was from the future other than using foul language? Plus, why on earth would the duke have admitted her to the house in the first place? If you can't make that real, the story falls apart.
Right off the bat I could tell this was a good author who knew how to write. The first page roped me in, which is not very common; I'm picky. The writing is clever, Helen's POV had me chuckling and giving the girl kudos straight away. I knew very quickly this was going to be an intelligent, witty, and badass female protagonist, which the world truly needs more of.
With the introduction of the romantic interest I was ever so slightly annoyed, but that's on me, I am far too critical of romance. I got a bit scared that this book was off to such a great start with a protagonist I already loved only to have all my hopes and dreams smashed to bits as soon as the romance commenced. I feared this clever, badass woman would be reduced to a damsel in distress and I wouldn't be able to like her any longer. I will admit the swiftness with which the two get taken with each other irked me a bit, but it is a short novel and I knew what I was signing up for.
Overall, the plot remained great, and the writing was very good throughout the whole thing. The "romance" was a relatively short compared to the rest of the plot, and I actually did enjoy it while it was happening. The entire book is enthralling, and while I have yet to be entirely sold on romance novels of any sort, this book certainly brought me a step or two closer. 4.5 stars, well earned. I am buying the 2nd book asap.
