Duke Du Jour (Lords in Time #1)


TIME TRAVEL/HISTORICAL:  Jared Langley, 13th Duke of Reston, has always done his duty, but he finds his life lacking. Reading the journals of his ancestors proves this a common problem, except for the mysterious seventh Duke, whose journal is missing. When a stumble into one of the fountains on his estate lands him in Regency England, he is mistaken for that Duke and given the chance to find the answers to some of his questions. That is, if he can survive assassination attempts and the wrath of the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. Lady Ariana Hart has been in love with her neighbor for years. When he returns from war with amnesia, she discovers that the rake who broke her heart is now pursuing her with the passion she always dreamed of, but will it last, or will the rake return with his memory? 

In a fun twist on historical romance, a modern duke travels back to the past and finds passion he never expected. The first book in the Lords in Time series, “Duke Du Jour” will take readers on a wild ride of intrigue and romance. Although the romance and even the ending are somewhat predictable, and the trope of a time-traveling lord isn’t new, the quick pace and steam will keep the reader entranced from beginning to end, and solid plot and cast of secondary characters make this one enjoyable read. Fans of “Kate and Leopold” and other time traveling romances should check this one out!
