Armed with a newly minted university degree and a plane ticket to Paris, Jessie's plan was to celebrate graduation in the City of Love, kissing as many drunk French girls (or boys, she's not picky) as she can. Only, she never makes it. When her plane goes down mid-Atlantic she's pulled from what should have been a watery grave by an intriguing British Naval Captain-in 1805!
Stuck in Regency-era England, Jessie is left with no choice but to enter into the services of the Captain's sister as a lady's companion. But she didn't reckon on the sister being Margaret Goodenough, the world-famous authoress whose yet-to-be-completed novel was the first lesbian kiss in the history of British Literature.
And Jessie's not just entranced by Margaret's powerful words...
As their attraction grows, Jessie must tread the tenuous line between finding her own happiness in a world where she is alone, and accidentally changing the future of the queer rights movement. Is Jessie's duty to preserve Margaret's history-making book? Or to the happiness of its author, the woman she's learning to love?
