Overview

What is a girl to do when an awkward first date leads to a trip back in time?

When she agreed to go on a date with quantum physicist, Dr. David Fergusson, Kate Kallastad never expected that he would insist on demonstrating his breakthrough in his RAL funded research into the creation of a trans-space teleportation device. Nor did she expect to get caught up in a science experiment that would send both Kate and her date hurling through space-time.

Stranded in the past with only a diminishing hope that David will be able to send them home and nothing but time on her hands, Kate takes a step down from biochemist to take a job as a maid in the household of the new Earl of Harrowby. However, this Earl if no stuffy carbon copy of Walt Whitman but rather a stunning embodiment of masculine appeal who sends her senses reeling.

To Kate, Brandon Ryder, the Earl of Harrowby, is not like any man the 21st century had ever produced. Beyond gorgeous, he is commanding, austere, aristocratic… magnificent. His appeal to a woman who had never known all those qualities in a single man was undeniable. They just didn’t build them like that anymore. He is reserved where she is merry, grounded where she is capricious. However, when Brand sets his urbane exterior aside and the passionate man within emerges, it is enough to set Kate’s heart soaring.

Brandon Ryder has spent a lifetime bound by the rules of Society and one of those rules is that a gentleman doesn’t trifle with the help. However, Kate Kallastad is no ordinary employee. His lovely new maid challenges him at every turn, astounding him with her forthright manner, by her audacity to treat him not as an Earl but as a mere mortal man. After years amid the prevarication of Society and a family that was distant at best, Brand finds Kate’s honesty and comfortable familiarity tempting, daring him to break free of boundaries that have long ruled him, enticing him to indulge in the truest passion of his life… and his growing passion for her.

Eager to indulge in an unexpected love affair with Brand, Kate embraces a life in the past only to be confronted with a choice. Life in a time that has little to offer a 21st century girl besides a chance at love or a return to her home where she has family and a job she is passionate about? Once her decision is made, will Kate regret her choice or will circumstances beyond her control change her mind for her when it is a matter of life or death?

Love takes a journey across time only to be challenged by risks, regrets and denial. When they are finally able to set all those things aside, will Brand and Kate find the right time for happiness and a life together?

    Great storyline!

    I loved this book. A woman gets scooped into a time machine her fellow scientist created and is tossed back to the 1800's. After a time of adjustment she falls in lock with an Earl. In order to save his life she had to bring him back to the present time but he's angered by her decision. I'll let you read on to see the ending. If I had to say anything bad about the book it's that the author over-writes their thoughts. I would have prepferred more dialog between the two instead of their inner thoughts. I found myself scanning paragraphs to get back to the conversation to find out what happens. This aside, it's worth the read.

    I stumbled across this author by accident. Truth be told, I thought for sure a book only $1.99 would probably be pretty dull and fast. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was 1200 pages and kept me enticed the entire time. I really enjoyed this author's style and look forward to reading more of her works.

    Disappointing

    The book sounded good in the description and most of the customer reviews were good, so I thought I would give it a try. Whst a letdown! This book reads like a rough first draft. The characters are not very well developed, the author did not seem to try very hard to suspend my disbelief, and the heroine doesn't seem to have much in the way of culture shock from having landed in 1870's England. Couldn't the author have at least watched 'Back To The Future' to get some idea on how to portray how mind whacked anyone would be at finding themselves in a time before they were even born? I wasn't expecting great literature, just a fun read. This book was not fun to read.

    Couldn't put it down!

    This book was my favorite of all Angelina Fortin's books. Kate was so well written...she made me laugh and it was easy to visualize Brand's eyebrows shooting up at her comments. Ultimately, this is a story that reminds readers what is important in life. Thank you, Angelina, for a great read. I can only hope you will continue to share more of your talent and write more books.

    My Least Favorite of all her books. I liked the beginning and the end, but the middle dragged for me. Of course it was only $1.99 for 1240 Nook pages - which skipped 2-3 at a time, as most do. I loved Brand, but didn't care for Kate as much. I know the author states this is how people talk (Kate) , but my friends who have Master's do not talk like a 16 year old. I do enjoy time travel books and this was just fair.

    Too Much Sex

    The story was very good, but there were at least 4 instances of sexual scenes that easily took up 7 or 8 pages each time. Leave the sex out, and most of us would be happy. I don't want to have to worry when my grandkids pick up my Nook and go to read a book and these pages come up. Characters were good, story was good, but be prepared for lots of very graphic sex.

    In 1987, the Kim Basinger/Bruce Willis film "Blind Date&qu


    In 1987, the Kim Basinger/Bruce Willis film "Blind Date" was a walk in the park when compared to the first date of Oxford biomed chemist Kate Kallastad and quantum physicist David Ferguson. David bypasses dessert after their dinner for a ride in his new trans-space teleportation device. Reluctantly she allows him to perform a little demonstration. Next thing she knows, she is in 1876 London. David is thrilled, gets a house (including a room and wardrobe for her) and promises to build a new transporter to get them back. Eventually she perceives David is not necessarily in such a hurry to get them back to the twentieth century as she is. He wants to get married and setup house. Kate decides to leave the house to work as a maid for the Earl of Harrowby, in hopes her absence will stimulate productivity of the transporter. The work is grueling. A few weeks into the job she is told they will be leaving London to go to Ramble House in Henly-on-Thames in Buckinghamshire, the country home of Brandon "Brand" Ryder, Earl of Harrowby.

    Kate misses her parents and her sister, Ann, but works hard. One night, unable to sleep, she goes to the library to find something to read...and in he walks. Tall, dark, outrageously handsome. And so began a friendship, a passion that is taboo in this time, an Earl and a maid will never be accepted. Their chance meetings and conversations eventually lead to Kate becoming the nanny to the Earl's nephew, Nathan Ralston. Her teaching methods baffle Brand but he can't argue with success, and he can't stay away from Kate.

    David has finally completed construction of the transporter and plans to leave within a week. Kate tells him she is in love and will stay with the Earl. The day before he is to leave, Brand comes down with appendicitis. In terror, Kate begs David to take Brand and she back with him immediately in order to save his life. He acquiesced and the transport was successful, the surgery was too. But then the realization of being in the twentieth century becomes the focus for Kate and Brand. This is a well written, charming and entertaining book that I recommend for a weekend read.
