    ***Received from Entangled Publishing for an honest review***
    (This is a short story/novella. This review is not based on story length but story content as length has very little to do with how much I enjoy a book.)

    I've read a few time travel romances but I can't say I've read one that actually involves a machine and an actual job to do in the past. Oftentimes, the hero/heroine stumbles into the past by some random event or even by injury. That the ability to time travel was actually invented and utilized makes this story unique.

    I love and appreciate Sydney's dedication to her job. While she is attracted to Captain Miles Griffin, she puts it aside to focus on the job at hand, until her machine breaks and she's stuck in the past. The emotions portrayed when she realizes that she's really and truly stuck in 1810, and that she's also been caught with the machine by Captain Griffin, made her more realistic to me.

    Who doesn't love a man in uniform? LOL I sure do! But it wasn't just the uniform that made Miles attractive as a hero. It was his determination to persuade Sydney that staying with him in 1810 wasn't such a bad idea. I like how he took her with him, how they enjoyed the Christmas season together, and how everything he did for her helped break down her resolve and convince her to stay.

    While I enjoyed the characters, the dialogue, and the internal struggles, I also loved reading about the time machine itself. For me, the mix of science and romance was well-balanced, giving me a greater appreciation for what Sydney was losing by choosing to stay.
