Sparks fly when a skate-boarding, science-loving college guy travels through time and meets a prim-and-proper princess who yearns to be set free from constraint :) I enjoyed this unconventional tale of young love! It wasn't what I was expecting when I saw the cover, but I'm *very* glad I read it!

I looooooove the cover of this novella. And Heather Hiestand's sweet style left me wanting more--I wish I'd read the previous story, since I soon realized another "traveler" had entered the Victoriana world before Oliver Brown. I would have loved a bit more in-depth explanations about the characters' backgrounds, since their attraction and growing affection developed nicely. I'm hoping Hiestand has more travelers in mind to explore this interesting place!
