When she agreed to go on a date with quantum physicist Dr. David Fergusson, Kate Kallastad never expected that he would insist on demonstrating his breakthrough in the creation of a trans-space teleportation device. Nor did she expect to get caught up in a science experiment that would send both Kate and her date back in time.
Stranded in the past with nothing but time on her hands, Kate accepts a job as a maid in the household of the gorgeous, commanding earl of Harrowby - a man unlike any she's ever met before.
Brandon Ryder, the earl of Harrowby, has spent a lifetime bound by the rules of society, and one of those rules is that a gentleman doesn't trifle with the help. However, Kate Kallastad is no ordinary employee. His lovely new maid challenges him at every turn, astounding him with her audacity to treat him not as an earl but as a mere mortal man. Kate's honesty and comfortable familiarity dares Brandon to break free of boundaries that have long ruled him, enticing him to indulge in the truest passion of his life...and his growing passion for her.

If you're looking for a typical Time Travel or a typical Historical Romance then this isn't quite it. It is a pretty good melding of the two... yet lacking the stuff I really love about that time in London Society pieces and yet not gritty or meaty enough to be a time travel sci-fi piece either. I don't mean to say that it was less then wonderful... In its own way it really was! However it managed to cross both genres so lightheartedly that it left me kind of floundering on my response to it.
The characters are very real and the settings spring to life. The plot was good and the writting enjoyable. Somehow there is still "something" about it I can't quite put my finger on.
NARRATOR: I LOVE Anthony Ferguson!!! He can do NO wrong!
CREDITWORTHY? Hmm... I wouldn't use my very last credit on it but I don't regret using the one that I did either.
HEAT FACTOR : Steamy!
Self Proclaimed Audiobook Expert...lol.
I liked the story but the ending was just "meh" for me. Kate was likeable enough. She did have some non 21st century behavioral moments that left me thinking "oh hell no". Some characters were introduced that I felt didn't add anything to the story. I liked Harrowby and I loved seeing him loosen up with Kate's help.
antony ferguson's american accent is always entertainment. there were times where in kate's dialogue his british accent came out but knowing that the american accent isn't his strong suit i was happy with his performance.
My first book of the author, Angeline Fortin but I will be purchasing more of this author I love her story and the characters. Time travel novels are a favorite of mine. I would recommend this one to anyone who loves time travel too Antony Ferguson brought the characters to life. Excellent narrator!
I couldn't put it down. Spent the whole day listening.
The story was one of time travel from a time machine creating 136 years difference. I liked the story unfolding even though it was a little weak at times. There is a few very raw sexy interludes that were done tastefully. I really enjoyed the book and enjoyed it more than once
I appreciated the fact that the author went to the Past and also brought them to the Future. not too thrilled about the ending but the Way It Was Written give it partial closure at least.
I would never read another book narrated by Antony Ferguson.
I finally had to quit listening as much as I enjoyed the plot and story, I couldn't get past the horrible female's voice. He made it raspy and whiney and it was really difficult to pay attention to what was happening in the story when you can't get past the voice. It made everything unbelievable and I couldn't listen any longer.
This was by far the worse story I have ever heard, it made, the main female character out to be as dumb as a box's of rocks
