Synopsis: The Darcy family has grudgingly kept the secret about the power contained within a nearby stone circle called Nine Ladies. Fitzwilliam Darcy is forced to contend with this secret when a young woman from the future appears at Pemberley. Until the opinionated stranger can return to when she belongs, Darcy is responsible not only for her safety but also for ensuring that nothing she does threatens Pemberley’s well-being.

Elizabeth Bennet has returned to England to take care of her estranged father, and her life was off track long before she walked into that stone circle at sunset. She quickly discovers that, as a poor and single woman, she’ll have to rely on the arrogant Mr. Darcy. She tries her best to survive in the nineteenth-century until she can return home but, as she and Darcy grow closer, the truth she knows about his and Pemberley’s bleak future becomes harder to keep.

Will their love prove timeless as centuries and cultures collide in this time travel Pride and Prejudice variation?

My Review: I thought this book sounded interesting and I jumped at the chance to join Heather Moll's advanced readers team. I have to say I really enjoyed this book and I love seeing an open-minded Darcy. He didn't have a meltdown like Elizabeth did when she ended up in Regency England. Though she seemed to get over it fast enough. I felt her pain that women really didn't have any rights during that period in time. Darcy sacrificed living his life in Regency England to travel to the future to be with his Elizabeth. I find it surprising that he set up a convoluted system so that he would "inherit" Pemberley once he went back to the future. 

This was a good book but I feel like it didn't need to be this long. It's close to 500 pages and it took me a while to get through it. I will be picking up a copy when it's officially released and I recommend that you do too if you like a mix of the past and future in your romance. 

Rating: 4 stars
