Imagine present-day lady author meets Regency period man, and at first believes she is just dreaming. Add in a grandmother who mysteriously vanished and a cottage that is about to be demolished and a few other plot twists and you have Forever, Lately. This story has to be one of the most interesting takes on time travel I have read.
I love how Claire and St. John come together, even when he does not necessarily believe her tale of time travel. This book contains a bit of danger, intrigue, adventure, high-speed car chases and more.
The inclusion of God and faith adds a lot to this story as do the plot twists and turns. The author does an excellent job of talking about God without being preachy.
Add in Clarissa, the Regency lady who either wants St John for herself or plans to kill him and the story develops even more. The characters are well-developed. The storyline kept my interest. The settings were amazingly described. Truly this is a book worth reading. So check it out for yourself.
I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

More from Linore
I wanted to write a Regency time travel for years. When I saw the movie “Kate and Leopold” I thought, Oh no! Someone used my idea! But I needn’t have worried. Leopold (Hugh Jackman) was a Victorian gentleman, not a Regencian. Secondly, though I enjoyed the flick, I kept thinking it missed many opportunities for humor. (Having written a screenplay since then, I now realize why it missed so many: tight scripts just don’t have room for all the scenes that could be fun.) When I wrote my story, however, I was able to include a lot of the humor scenes that had been floating around in my head for eons. It’s one of the reasons the book is a lot of fun to read—particularly when the Regency hero appears in the present.
On a side note, I started this book and then dropped it—for years—mostly because I wanted to write it as Christian romance like my other Regencies. But I kept running into roadblocks. And Christian publishers weren’t interested. Finally I realized I had to let God out of MY box and write the story he was giving me, not the one I thought he should give me. After that, it came together remarkably easily and quickly. And, I think, in a very fun way. I might even do a sequel.
