About the Author

Kristina O'Grady grew up on a ranch in Canada and has been told many times she should be writing about cowboys but she can't seem to leave the fantasy of Dukes and Earls alone. In mid- 2000 Kristina met her own knight in shining armour/cowboy who swept her off her feet and across the world to New Zealand, where she now lives on a sheep and beef farm with her amazingly supportive husband, three gorgeous kids, seven working dogs and one very needy cat.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Carina UK and Netgalley.) Grace is a party planner at a Regency-themed New Year’s Eve ball, and she hasn’t had a break all night. Throwing caution to the wind, she drags a handsome man into the corner for a new-years snog, only to somehow find herself transported to 1813, Regency London. How did Grace end up transported back in time to 1813? And what does she do now? This was an okay story, but it felt a lot longer than 215 pages. Grace was an okay character, although she was certainly a bit lusty for the 19th century. What I didn’t get was quite how unconcerned she seemed about being stuck in the past, and her lack of worry over changing history (seeing how she wasn’t supposed to be there!). The storyline in this was okay, but it wasn’t great. Again, Grace didn’t seem to be worried about being stuck in the past or changing things, and she certainly didn’t seem worried about bringing ideas and customs from 2014 back to 1813. The romance in this was the best part of the book, and without it I don’t think I’d have liked this at all, it wasn’t perfect though. Grace was so lusty it was ridiculous. It seemed like every available chance she was trying to get into Jasper’s pants, even in public, and she didn’t seem worried about how this would affect her reputation in this historic time. Again though, even the love scenes weren’t perfect. Grace seemed to peak every time Jasper so much as looked at her, and some of the language was cringe-worthy as well. I can’t believe the author actually used the term ‘throbbing member’. I mean really? The ending to this was okay, and I was glad that things worked out happily. This book did have major flaws though, so I’m actually happy that I enjoyed it as much as I did! Overall; okay historical romance novel with a twist, 6 out of 10.
