Present day, Elle March is a woman looking for her perfect husband. A man to chase away her loneliness. Even a marriage of convenience starts sounding good to her. So when she gets the chance to wish upon a piece of pink paper she doesn’t hesitate…and finds herself in 18th century England. And about to be married to the Earl of Allsbrook. Fairies switching her body with that of a spoiled merchant daughter.

Henry, Earl of Allsbrook needs to marry for money. Selling his title is the only option. However, even knowing of the importance of a rich wife he hungers for a happy marriage. Henry is a man in control, at least until he gets closer to his indented bride. Confused by her manners, her intelligence and her stubbornness he tries to be patient and understanding. Amazing how Lisa Cach portrays him. Here there is no need for brute strength, tender and persuasive seduction work so much better.

No wonder than that Elle learns to love her new home, her new place in history and time and her new husband. Especially when remembering her dreary job and experienced loneliness. So she readily accepts the new and unknown, the challenge of implementing the wonders and amenities of the modern world, pizza, sanitary and contraceptive methods and new fashions are being introduced.

Lisa Cach shows with her debut title the talent for creating unique and lovable characters within a story of rich imagination and sound historical research. Keep your hanky ready for the very emotional ending.
