Nobody would blame widowed doctoral student Eliza James for giving up on Happily Ever After; at twenty-nine, she’s suffered more loss than most people do in a lifetime. But Eliza’s convinced her own hero is still out there, waiting for her, just like in the beloved romance novels she devours. Every girl deserves a Darcy, right?

Only Eliza doesn’t dream of a modern-day affair: she wants the whole Regency experience. When a magical manuscript thrusts her back two hundred years into the arms and life of one Deveric Mattersley, Duke of Claremont, however, Eliza soon realizes some fantasies aren’t all they’re cracked up to be, especially when her duke proves himself less than a Prince Charming.

Deveric Mattersley has no interest in marriage. Determined to atone for his sins after convincing himself he’s at fault for the death of his first wife, he decrees himself content to focus on running his family’s estates, and on raising his son–until the mysterious Mrs. James appears. Who is she? What does she want? And why does she make Dev’s blood run hot in a way no woman ever has?

***Catherine – #NerdGirlCat’s  Review***

What a wonderful book, I had the opportunity to read the first book and I loved it, so I was excited to be able to read A Matter of Time. This was such a lovely love story, mixed with a little magic thrown in. I loved reading through the development of Eliza and Dev’s relationship, it was funny to see her use phrases from our time and you could just imagine what the people thought. This was one of the best fantasy, paranormal romances I have read in a while. I loved the characters and even the secondary characters wer great. I would most definitely recommend this book and I look forward to more from this series.
