It is fair to say I enjoyed it despite the fact that it was riddled with flaws. It was a fairly fun time travel romance that was just light enough in tone to be fun. The story was fun. Dougless Montgomery is abandoned by her wastrel boyfriend in a church in rural England after their holiday went bad and prays for a knight in shining armor to save her.

Abandoned by a cruel fate, lovely Dougless Montgomery lies weeping upon a cold tombstone in an English church. Suddenly, the most extraordinary man appears. It is Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck…and according to his tombstone he died in Drawn to his side by a bond so sudden and compelling it overshadows reason, Dougless knows that Nicholas is nothing less than a miracle: a man who does not seek to change her, who finds her perfect, fascinating, just as she is.
What Dougless never imagined was how strong the chains are that tie them to the past…or the grand adventure that lay before them.
As usual, Gloria was eating. There was a makeup case under her feet and a big wardrobe on the seat beside her. Every time she moved, she scraped against a buckle, a welt, or a handle. Robert glanced over his shoulder at Dougless. That luggage is quite expensive.
All I asked was that you make an effort. Besides, she knew that it would do no good. So, instead of replying, she swallowed her anger—then rubbed her stomach. It was hurting again. She wanted to ask Robert to stop to get something to drink so she could take one of the tranquilizers the doctor had prescribed for her nervous stomach.
But when Dougless glanced up, she saw Gloria smirking at her in the makeup mirror on the sun visor. With determination, Dougless looked away and tried to concentrate on the beauty of the English countryside.
Outside the car window she saw green fields, old stone fences, cows and more cows, picturesque little houses, magnificent mansions, and. Dougless seemed to see Gloria everywhere. But please try to show some sympathy for her, will you?
At thirteen, Gloria wore more makeup than Dougless did at twenty-six—and Gloria spent hours in the hotel bathroom applying it. Gloria sat in the front of the car. Dougless tried to concentrate on the scenery. Robert said Dougless was jealous of his daughter.
Dougless had tried to like Gloria. Several Saturday nights Dougless had stayed at the house she shared with Robert, babysitting Gloria while he went to professional functions, usually cocktail parties or dinners. You need to get to know each other. Love me, love my kid. But the minute Robert appeared, Gloria changed into a whining, lying brat.
At first Dougless had laughed at what Gloria was saying. How absurd to think she would ever harm a child! Dougless had taken two of her stomach tranquilizers. After the arguments, Dougless had wavered between guilt and rage. She had a classroom of children who adored her, yet Gloria seemed to hate her.
Every time Dougless thought of her possible jealousy she vowed to try harder to make Gloria like her, which usually meant she bought Gloria another expensive gift. At other times, all Dougless felt was rage. But every time Dougless said something like that to Robert, she ended up apologizing. Order the Book.
