I really liked this book. I thought it was funny. While not totally realistic, I read a lot of books to escape reality so it didn t really bother me. I totally recommend this book to my friends and family looking for a light read.

I read this book to its end only to see how bad it would get, and it got pretty bad. Sandra Hill started out well with sharp writing, wonderful banter between the heroine Selene and her agent Georgia, and absolutely spectacular descriptions of New Orleans and the French Quarter. To my delight, she even gave a great, subtle history lesson regarding the Quadroon Balls that took place in the mid-1800's. The whole package falls apart once Selene, the modern-day supermodel, goes back to 1845. From there on, Selene becomes increasingly unlikeable. Time travel is far-fetched to begin with, even for the genre of romance, but Hill's attempts at humor regarding Selene's modern-belle-out-of-time situations fall embarrassingly flat. Her characterizations of the slaves are insulting caricatures. But the editor of the book should have caught that. The title of the book seems to be an homage to Gone With The Wind, as is the cover photo. Any similarities to GWTW stop there, as Selene is no Scarlett (although she is every bit as unlikeable as Scarlett is) and the story takes place in Louisiana, not Georgia. James Baptiste, the hero, was hot, and his physical attraction to Selene is believable. His falling in love with Selene comes across as forced and unpleasant to read. Sandra Hill could have done so much better with this book, given her great start.
