Eleanor is tired of being a spinster no one ever notices. Life for a twenty-six year old unwed woman in 1811 is dreadfully dull.

Dare she travel two hundred years into the future to have a 1Night stand with the help of Madame Eve?
Thomas struggles daily to move on after the death of his beloved countess, but being the most highly sought after bachelor of the ton doesn’t allow him much privacy to do so. All he yearns for is a night of lust and fun, with a woman who can make him remember what it feels like to be swept away by passion. Traveling two hundred years into the future seems to be the perfect solution for both discretion and ease.
What will happen when they discover they didn’t escape their lives at all, but merely found each other?

A romantic time-traveling story!
I loved this book! At first, it took me a while to get into it, maybe because I was trying to juggle other books at the same time. When I finally read it, I just fell in love. In a way, I took my sweet time reading this book, and it was worth it.
I just love how historical men are so chivalrous and filled with a duty to ladies of their time. They always make sure that they do not disrespect the women, especially "pure" women. Their honor and nobility are truly admirable.
Thomas and Eleanor both traveled two hundred years into the future to spend one passionate night with someone. Eleanor have been in love with Thomas for a long time. She couldn't find the same feeling towards any other men and became a spinster because of it. Thomas, on the other hand, was a widow. He was still in love with his wife, but something stirred inside when he met Eleanor.
This story was kind of like a Cinderella story in a way. There were no shoes left behind, but Thomas did scour the city to find Eleanor. He was disappointed night after night for a week, until one night when he finally found her.
The romance in this story is simply exquisite. It made my heart so warm, it was as if I was there watching it unfold. I recommend this book for sure!
"I need you. No one could make me feel better. I know this is all sudden. I know I've been a fool. But, let me court you. You can take as long as you'd like to decide if I'm worthy to be your husband. Give me time to show you my intentions are true. You'll see how much you mean to me. And you'll doubt me no longer. Just give me a chance."
Check out these steamy, romantic scenes!
She'd never lain with anyone but him, and he would make the night memorable. They'd have to move on in a few short hours. But until then, he'd kiss every square inch of her body. Starting with the one spot she'd been taunting him with glimpses of all night. Letting his mouth fall away from hers, he dropped to his knees. He reached up and caressed her thighs, enjoying the play of his fingers on her milky white skin.
"I'm going to do something shocking, but I promise you, it is commonplace among lovers. Do you trust me?" He made sure to keep his voice husky, willing her to acquiesce to his request. "Can you let me taste you?"
Her face paled, but she nodded before gripping his shoulders. "Yes, I trust you. Just don't let me fall."
He ducked his head to hide his smile. She would require more help standing by the time he finished with her, but he would make sure she didn't fall.
He advanced, thunderous fury clouding his features. "No?" His voice was deceptively soft, but she wasn't fooled. A muscle in his chin ticked, and she could hear him grinding his teeth. "What do you mean no? Are you refusing me?"
"First of all, I don't recall being asked." She tilted her chin and glowered down her nose at him. No easy feat, given her short stature. "Secondly, I will not marry you out of some nonsensical sense of chivalry."
Thomas growled and backed her into a wall. His hands rested on either side of her, and she quivered as he leaned in. His hot breath fanned her cheek. "Will you do me the honor of being my wife?"
"Why?" she whispered. "There's no reason for you to--"
"You push me too far." His voice held a warning in it. "You will be my wife. Even if I have to force you to Scotland to accomplish the fact. I am not above kidnapping my bride."
