A scandal-scarred Regency lady comes to present-day Charlottesville, Virginia in search of the independence and education she's long desired, only to entangle herself with one befuddled, career-consumed computer science professor. Can this odd couple blend the past and the present into a mutual future?
The past is always present.
Independent, spirited Amara Mattersley may live under the shadow of scandal, but at least the Regency society judging her is familiar. That’s all about to change when she finds herself in twenty-first-century Charlottesville, Virginia–and locking horns with one very befuddling, very male, UVa professor.
Computer science professor Matthew Goodson has no time for love–no time for anything, actually, but his quest for tenure and his obsession with the screen. The last thing he expects is to get side-swiped by this adorably peculiar British miss. Yet something in her calls to him, pulls at him, in a way unknown — and uncomfortable.
Can the past and the present blend into a mutual future? Or will old wounds and new complications sabotage any chance at a twenty-first century happily ever after?
