Must Love Breeches

Ectual match or her irresistible allureIsabelle thought all she wanted was to return home but as passion flares between them she must decide when her true home and her heart liesSet in London this time travel historical romance features a small cast of historical characters including Ada Byron Lord Byron's daughter and Charles Babbage inventor of the Difference Engine It explores the often overlooked scientific developments of pre Victorian London.. This was a nice book to listen to as I basically baked 1000 cookies for a cookie exchange The narrator Mary Jane Wells man I love her voice The story it is a time travel where the heroine Isabella is a modern day lady who is at an 1800s re enactment ball at an historic home courtesy of the museum where she works During her present day ball she is mysteriously transported back to the same house during a ball in the 1800sI liked how this played out Because everyone was in period dress during the present day ball and she only has a bit of wooziness during transport which she chalks up to alcohol Isabelle doesn t at first realize she s in a different time She just believes the hard core re enactors have finally arrived But her reactions where she starts to realize what happened I thought were well done and ring true well as true as you could assume someone would act in the same situationSince this is a novel the worst that could happen to her alone and bereft in a very strange place with no money and no one she knows doesn t happen She doesn t uite have the Clair Frasier experience She happens to be the recipient of the kindness of strangers so she can get her bearingsI did like how she outright convinced Ada the young lady who comes to her rescue that she is from the future courtesy of her cell phone that she still had handily on her person So she is able to enlist Ada to her cause who also gives her a cover story a place to stay and clothes There is a bit of way too much convenience there but I could hand wave that for the sake of the storyThe rest of the story is Isabella trying to figure out a way to get back home while also falling in love with the hero Phineas And that morphs into the dilemma of how to reconcile the plot of who stays whenThere are some other subplots mainly the hero is in his own revenge subplot that marginally dovetails with the time travel plot For me the hero s plot was the weakestThere are also imo some rather contrived elements I felt that was piled on top to add obstacles to her getting back which I felt were unnecessary and just added extra stuff to the plot But at the core this was a fun book with lots of humor I did like Isabella s inner voice and her slips into modern collouialisms and people s reactions to her speech patterns sometimes My biggest disappointment is toward the end I think Isabella turns a little uncharacteristically dumb This is a woman who for all intents and purposes is trapped in a time when she has no relatives no money no means of support and she is supposedly a historian so she should be aware of the social issues she is facing but decides to make a decision that is grounded too much in modern sensibility to make any sort of sense She is supposed to be smarter than she comes off and I was very disappointed that it took someone else in the book to point that out to her when she should have had enough sense to come to these conclusions herself Also I know this was a fairly light hearted book but there were places when I think Isabella could have benefited from a bit panic about her situationAlso there is an epilogue which sigh makes no sense but then you have the read the author s note to get an explanation for it I get it but really it opened uestions than it answered But like I said fun enough

Pitfalls of stiff society London conceal her origins and resist her growing attraction to Lord Montagu a viscount so hot he curls her shower loving toesLord Montagu is resolved to avenge his sister and has no time for dalliances despite the appeal of the strange but lovely Colonial However when his scheme for revenge reuires a respectable match he convinces Isabelle to masuerade as his fiancée But he did not bargain for Ms Rochon being his intell. The moment I started reading this book I immediately thought of Outlander by Diana Gabaladon and Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Vierra Rigler The concept of time travelling to one of my favourite time periods I immediately fell in love with the concept and the plot This book was amazing A definite top ten contender and I can t wait to re read it as I breathlessly read as fast as I could to learn what would happen nextIsabelle is a modern day American who has moved to London for work and a fresh start She adores her work at the British museum and is attending a period costume ball when the most amazing thing happens She strokes a silver card case she is carrying while wishing she was actually at a ball in 1834 She all of a sudden ends up at a London ball in 1834 having no idea where she is and how she got there She uickly befriends Lady Ada Byron daughter of that Lord Bryon and the delicious Lord Montagu I thought it was hilarious how she navigated her foray into this new world Snapping a cell phone picture of Lady Ada insisting on walking home and using foul language I adored how the author treated the differences in societies Isabelle wears contact lenses and eventually had to trade them in for spectacles I loved how the author described the visit to the eye wear shop I have always thought about what it would be like to be alive during this time and since I wear contacts I ve shuddered with dread at the idea of not having access to them I liked how the author addressed old fashioned solutions to our modern day conveniences When Lord Montagu is injured and Isabelle treats his wound she applies modern day medical knowledge including washing hands She is treated like she has three heads for suggesting such a thing but we know how imperative it is not to spread germs It was fascinating to view England in 1834 from Isabelle s modern perspective When Isabelle is not allowed to eat alone in an inn open a bank account or stroll down the street alone her indigent attitude is exactly what a modern day woman would feel So often historical romance novels make this a normal part of a lady s routine but Isabelle chafes at the restrictionsFor such a modern woman Isabelle learns how delicate and precarious her situation has become She cannot support herself Therefore she relies on the charity of Lady Ada and Lady Somerville She reluctantly agrees to pretend to be affianced to Lord Montagu in order to help him with a problem which he doesn t want to revealUnlike the book Austenland by Shannon Hale Isabelle isn t play acting at being a lady in 1800 England She must figure out uickly how to navigate society in order to survive Mistakes made by the characters in Austenland would have been ignored but when Isabelle makes a foible or slips it is immediately noticed One thing that caught my attention was Isabelle s use of contractions Apparently in England in the 1800s no one used contractions when speaking They excuse her language since she is from America and the colonies do things so very differently I guess I never noticed in all the books I have read in this genre that the characters don t speak in contractions They certainly don t swear like IsabelleThe book highlights the scientific achievements of the time and is one of the first books I have read that details the Scientific Societies of the time The author makes sure to include the contributions of women and how a learned woman was not always labelled a bluestocking Considering there was no tv or movies trips to the opera or plays and attending meetings at things like the Scientific Societies were the main forms of entertainment for the dayOne thing that doesn t change regardless of the date or setting is attraction between a man and a woman Or for that matter friendship Isabelle s relationships with Phineas Lord Montagu and Lady Ada could happen in modern times although I would wager that most women don t invite a virtually stranger into their home protect feed and clothe them to the extent Lady Ada does for Isabelle The relationship between Phineas and Isabelle starts off rocky as he finds her attractive but strange She speaks in riddles and language that he doesn t uite understand However as he is in need of a pretend betrothed she is the perfect fit The growing attraction between the two gets stronger and stronger especially when she discovers that her modern day London home actually belongs to him in 1834 I was so curious how a modern woman and a gentleman from the 1800s would fit together in the bedroom It seems time travel doesn t erase the basest instincts humans possess It was amazing when they kissed and as the reader I wanted I worried how her lack of virginity would impact the relationship but when the heat turns up it doesn t matter The scenes are hot and sort of a blend of what you would expect from a historical romance novel and a Nora Roberts modern day book Lord Montagu s investigation takes over the last third of the book and adds some mystery and spice to the story that has Isabelle forced to make a difficult choice to stay in 1834 or go home to her life in modern England Once Phineas story is finally told it makes you like the character even than you already do because of his treatment of Isabelle and generally being a great catchThis book was just so much fun I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and can t wait to re read I will definitely be sharing this book with others so they too can laugh cry and marvel at the wonderful story Angela uarles has createdReviewed for Kiltsandswords Thank you Netgalley
