How to woo a gentleman—and weaponize dessert.
Romance novel junkie Eliza Pepper always thought she was born too late, but now she really is stuck in the wrong time. Tasked with mending a tear in the timeline, she’s trying desperately to fit into 1873 London. But dang it, mucking out a fireplace while looking like the lunch lady from hell is hard.
If she can just keep from setting the floor on fire and somehow resist her growing attraction to the master of the house, she’ll be fine. All she has to do is repeat her mantra: “He’s nothing like Darcy. He’s nothing like Darcy.”
William Brown has always taken pride in his mastery of English decorum, but his new maid is a complete disaster, has thrown his household into chaos…and he finds her utterly captivating.
Though he’s willing to endure extreme physical discomfort to keep their relationship in proper perspective, her arrival has brought out a side of him he never knew existed. And Eliza has an innocently erotic knack for coaxing that decidedly ungentlemanly facet of himself out to play…
Warning: A modern girl who knows bupkis about nursing and maiding in the 19th century, a gentleman poet with a repressed wild side, and inappropriate use of a pair of pantaloons.

The mention of EF made me shrill along with the brief mention of Buffy The story itself was not only well researched which I appreciated, but very well written Without giving anything away, I enjoyed reading the transformation and adjustments the characters went through The romance was realisrically done and made it so I could easily visualize the moments throughout the story I WOULD BUY THIS STORY AGAIN
Eliza is captivated by a beautiful Victorian ball gown and before she knows it, is swept back in time to "fix something." What she needs to fix is a mystery, but there's no mystery to her attraction to the man of the house. Poor Eliza isn't a fancy lady dressed in a ball gown, though--she's the maid of all work! Very sexy and terrific fun.
