Romance Time Travel | Romance Historical

Avid gamer Jamie Marten falls through an antique mirror into a lavish bedchamber...200 years in the past. Micah Axelby, Earl of Dunnington, isn't in the market for a new mistress, but he's fascinated with the nearly naked woman who backs up her absurd story by showing him a tiny screen that flings upset birds at pigs.

Jamie's odd name, sailor's mouth, and tendency to thoroughly muck things up frustrate Micah at every turn. But a meddling, magic-wielding housekeeper insists that Jamie is his lordship's perfect match. When her catch of the century is a world apart, can a fiercely independent modern woman truly be happy?
