Elaine awakens to find herself in a new body, in the 19th instead of the 20th century. Interesting take on time-travel and an enjoyable read.

I didn't enjoy this one as much as her other novels and stories. Maybe the time travel threw me off. However, if you like erotic fiction, Schone delivers.

Not one of my favorite Schone books;didn't like how one minute the hero was erotic and loving and the next he would be ordering the heroine about like a child, but a nice weekend read.

Held my attention, but the characters are all rather unlikeable. Rather unpleasant overall.

There is quite a lot to this dark gothic style paranormal as well as many twists and surprises. Very original plot. I've read the other reviews and I've concluded it takes a particular type of romance reader to appreciate this story.
I thought Schone did a great job and I found her writing unique, darkly erotic, and very imaginative. A page turner for me that held my attention to the end.
I don't recommend it to the faint of heart or to those expecting a warm fuzzy story-line, for it gets a bit chilling. Strong characters were well defined and easy for me to get emotionally involved in.

Robin Schone offers a time travel romance with many layers. While the heroine is misplaced in Victorian England she is confronted with many choices, if she submits to her husband's advances, is she committing adultry? While she sifts through her bewildering situation she realizes the relationship she finds herself in is a better fit than the one from her own time. The hero is a little thin skinned, but worth the trouble. As always, Robin Schone offers explicitly satisfying sex scenes and the bad characters are truely bad.

I'm not much of a bodice-ripper reader, but I enjoyed a book with a similar premise (The Mirror by Marlys MiIlhiser) so I thought I'd give this a try. I couldn't get through it though. I had a hard time understanding some of the writing. For example in chapter one a quirt is being raised and lowered repeatedly, and I couldn't remember what the word "quirt" means -- later through Elaine's memory of the scene I realized it must be a whip, but I never did figure out if he was beating her with it, or if he was just beating on the furniture or what!
