She was looking for inspiration…
When historical romance author Jane Edwards goes to England on a research trip, she doesn’t expect to travel two hundred years into the past. She also doesn’t expect to be accused of murdering the Earl of Camden’s sister. Presented with few choices, Jane decides the best course of action is to help Camden find the real killer. But the more time she spends in his company, the more she falls for the dashing earl, and the more she hopes for a life with him by her side.
And found love in the most impossible place.
James Sullivan, Earl of Camden, is convinced Jane had something to do with his sister’s murder. Until he learns she lacked the ability to accomplish the feat. Still, her explanation about stopping by his home in the middle of a rainstorm to seek employment, doesn’t add up. And yet, when he offers her the position she supposedly seeks, he discovers the smart resourceful woman she is. Which makes him wonder if marrying his new maid, might be worth the risk of scandal.

I’m such a sucker for time-travel romance. There’s nothing more satisfying than two super different individuals finding a legit reason to love one another. With Jane and James, it’s a near cosmic connection that goes beyond their hot chemistry and time spent together. You really get to agree with why they work so well, you know? She brings something new for him, a challenge, a breath of fresh air. For Jane, he forces her to think about what it really means to have an authentic love, if not an authentic connection. She had her faults, ones that weren’t obvious in the beginning, and it’s actually because of the things they both had to go through that I really ended up loving this book.
I thought this was entertaining. If you like solving crimes while some romance is going on, you’re going to love this. The story was fast paced, a little too quick for my taste because I personally couldn’t get to really sink into the characters, but I liked the writing style and thought it was all pretty balanced enough to be a good read. Everyone also seemed developed enough, given interesting personalities and history that really enriched the story so much more, in my opinion. It’s an overall recommended read if you like time-travelling romance with a mystery to solve.
