As a look-alike of Julia’s husband, Drew slips into the role of her husband, now found, and recovering from an accident. He must try to discover what happened to the estate’s wealth, leaving Julia and her mother-in-law in destitute conditions.
Will sparks fly between Julia and Drew? Can he solve the mystery to lost estate’s monies? Can he find a way to return to the present? Or will be stay in the past?
This is a charming Regency time travel.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, Drew Engledown is facing another lonely holiday until fate steps in – or plows into him. Waking in Regency England and in the arms of the widow Lady Engledown , Julia, he is mistaken for her murdered husband. After much deliberation he assumes the dead earl’s persona and is soon doing a much better job at being Julia’s husband than his predecessor.
I loved the development of Drew and Julia navigating the kinda-married situation they find themselves in and the awkward positions that two hundred years creates. As Drew attempts to fit into society and help save her family’s finances, Julia tries to understand the new sensation of desire Drew has presented.
When Drew is faced with returning to present day – well I’m not giving that away. You’ll enjoy finding out as much as I did.
Valentine’s Day for bachelor Drew Engledown means more than just candy hearts and secret admirers, it’s the day he starts questioning his own solitary existence. Why can’t he find his soulmate? His friend Chuck, who is blissfully wed to Brenda, agrees that Drew has not found “the one” otherwise he’d be married or nursing a broken heart.
As the two friends start across the street together, Chuck steps out in front of a double-decker London bus, but Drew’s quick action saves Chuck by pushing him out of the way, only to have the bus hit him instead. Somewhere between death and the hospital, Drew finds himself alive and well … in 1818 London!
Countess Julia, the beautiful woman who finds Drew strewn across her dead husband’s bed, believes him to be her spouse impossibly resurrected … for a moment. Then Julia realizes Drew is an almost identical twin to her late husband, Payne. Even Payne’s mother sees the amazing resemblance. Soon, Drew finds out that the late Payne Engledown was a womanizing scoundrel who failed to provide for his wife and mother in case of his death. Now Cousin Engledown is set to inherit everything, and he plans to toss out Julia and her mother-in-law. Can Drew help them?
This time travel story is unique and fun, although not all the dots connected for me. Drew’s acceptance of time travel, his ease of settling into instant royalty in a setting two-hundred years in the past, and his quick willingness to join a farce with people whom he barely knows, made the story feel rushed and incomplete. Even Brenda, who seemed to have all the answers that Drew and the readers needed, played such a small and insignificant role, her credibility was nil and her psychic-like abilities too convenient.
However, the story is creative, entertaining, and written in an easy-to-read style. It’s a quick read, too, making it perfect for long flights or an afternoon at the beach. If you’re looking for an unusual love story with the power to transport you to an out-of-the-ordinary place then this might be the perfect book for you!
