On the eve of her first comic book release, Ella Briley has a problem: no date to the
launch party. Things go from bad to worse when she stumbles into the past . . . and straight into the arms of her very own Mr. Darcy.

Patrick St. John, Earl of Meadowfair, is too noble for his own good. To save his friend from what is sure to be a loveless marriage, he's agreed to whisk the girl off to wed the man she truly loves. But all goes awry when Patrick mistakes Ella for the would-be bride . . . and finds this modern girl far too tempting for even the noblest of men to resist.
This was a fun time-travel romance.  It really didn't look at what happens to the time line when you go back, it just assumes that it all works out somehow.  I think what I liked most about the time-travel aspect was Ella's reaction to the living conditions.  She has to use a chamber pot - super embarassing.  I loved seeing the reaction of a modern woman to Regency times.

Ella was not at all happy to find herself stuck in the past with Patrick, but she'll have to work with him in order to get back to London and find her way home.  Patrick was quite a gentleman, and seemed to be truly worried about the strange crazy girl he accidently kidnapped.  I loved his thoughfulness and he really was just about everything I would hope to see in a romantic hero.

Of course, they do find themselves in all sorts of trouble a few times.  But it really gave the story a light-hearted feeling between more serious scenes.  The ending was a bit of a surprise, but I really love it - espcially the part about the toilet.  You'll just to read to find out what I mean!
