"Move over, Poldark! Julian St. John is our new English heartthrob!" L.K.Simonds, Author, All In
Julian St. John needs a wife. An oath to a deceased guardian must be kept. Miss Clarissa Andrews, a vexatious beauty, has dangled after him all season but he has no intention of choosing such a she-devil.
Maine, Present Day
Author Claire Channing is desperate to write a bestseller to save her failing career. She moves into her grandmotherʼs abandoned cottage to write the book, but a local resort baron wants to raze the place. Without the deed, the clock is ticking on how long she can stay. She thinks she's writing St. Johnʼs story. But when she discovers an old prayer shawl and finds herself in his Regency world, she falls in love with him, a man she thought she invented! Miss Andrews, however, is also real--and she'd rather see Julian dead than in another womanʼs arms!
Claire must beat the clock to prevent a deadly tragedy, but can love beat the limits of time itself?
"Intricate and unexpected time shifts. Excellent read. Highly recommend."

This is the best Regency novel I've ever read!
Kristen Malone, Historical Romance Writer
I would read anything Linore Rose Burkard writes.. It takes a great author to write so well in multiple genres, and this regency time travel is a great addition to Linore's other works, including a Christian Regency series and her heart stopping dystopian trilogy. This is an author you don't want to miss!

Thank you so much for this wonderful story. I love a happily-ever-after story and this gave me a romance and a happy ending--I have a smile on my face!

Research, research, research! Ms. Burkard shows her diligence (while) plot twists will keep the reader turning pages.

With eccentric characters, well-defined period details (have you been to 1816, Ms Burkard?) and a rollicking plot, Linore Rose Burkard takes us on a fast-paced, unpredictable journey that leaves the reader breathless until the very end. Janice Dick, Author, Calm Before the Storm
Loved this book! Unpredictability made me giggle in places. Great characterization and descriptions, creating a vivid picture, and the pressures in each time period created lasting suspense. A really good read.

I loved this book!It has romance, magic, mystery, and time travel all rolled into one delightful story that will keep you turning the page.
Jody Blair, Reader
I loved it! I'm not usually a fan of historical romance, and so I was initially drawn to this book because of the time travel element. So while I came for the time travel, I found myself gripped by the romance! I felt like I was there! In fact, I will miss spending time with the protagonists now that I've finished the book. I recommend it to science fiction and romance readers alike!

A delicious romp through time that will keep you on the edge of your seat! This was such a fun read. A hilarious mix (that) doesn't hit the brakes until the final page!
