When Stephanie’s art teacher issues a challenge—create a painting based only on the torso of a human sculpture—she decides to paint aRegency lord. But with his muscular body, longer hair and a few well-placed scars, Stephanie’s lord is definitely no Regency dandy. Her best work ever, the painting stirs an obsession Stephanie can’t explain. Not content to wait for the next class, she visits the art center, just to get a peek at her lord. She touches the painting…
And suddenly finds herself in a bedroom in 1817 London, her lord standing behind her—very real, very naked and very ready to end Stephanie’s sexual dry spell.
Before she can say “ton”, Stephanie’s indulging her desires with Gabriel, dressing in the height of Regency fashion and meeting the Prince Regent. But life in 1817 isn’t all tea and crumpets. Stephanie soon learns she’s reliving her past life—one that ended tragically. Thrust in the middle of a sinister plot, she must save the prince, save Gabriel…and if she’s luckier this time around, save herself.
I was instantly captivated in this storyline. Ms. Roberts has a way with her words to draw her readers into a deep trance and have them reading the story beginning to end in anticipation of what is going to happen next.
I love stories that give the heroine a chance to right any wrongs she may have or an opportunity to relive their lives. The only thing about this story I had a problem with was it was a little too predictable. You know the ending before you read it. And of course there was a fairy godmother. But it is a sweet, charming read that I would recommend to anyone wanting to read a romance for the ages.
