And yet, when he offers her the position she supposedly seeks, he discovers the smart resourceful woman she is. Which makes him wonder if marrying his new maid, might be worth the risk of scandal.

I love time travel stories. The combination of a love story and mystery makes me love them even more. Great characters. The heroine, Jane, a 21st century romance novelist is a pleasant twist. If you're looking for a little escape, this book will satisfy.
Jane Edwards is an American visiting the UK and is taking a train from London to Cloverfield. There, she plans to visit Summervale House which is described as a true English manor. As the author of historical romance novels, Jane wants to do some research for some novels before returning to London. She has broken off her engagement to Geoffrey because he does not support her with her writing. After checking into her hotel, Jane walks to Summervale House and takes the tour. Totally enchanted by the House, she notices a portrait of a lovely woman, Lady Tatiana, the sister of the tenth Earl of Camden. It was noted that she was murdered just a year after the painting was completed and the villain was never found. Jane soon finds a portrait of the Earl himself, a very handsome man. As Jane continues the tour, a lightning storm catches her outside and transports her back to the year 1818. She stumbles over the body of Tatiana and the Earl steps forward to subdue Jane thinking she is the murderer. Jane is locked in a bedchamber and the next day is questioned by the Earl. She explains to him that she is seeking a position. But when they discover the body of Tatiana’s maid, Jane is once again locked in her room. When it is determined that Jane is innocent, the Earl hires her to be a maid. Soon, Jane and the Earl join forces to find the murderer and in doing so, an attraction sparks between them. Can it go anywhere if they are from different eras? This is a good book and I found it to be a fun read. The author did a good job of making the “transition” from present day to the past. The angst that both Jane and the Earl feel about the time difference between them is quite thought provoking. I think readers will enjoy this story.
