When at James Myers, Esquire's home for a charity, the 4th Viscount Palmer, Ivan, gets up to use the water closet, opens the wrong door and ends up in Elizabeth Denby's bedroom.

3.5 stars for time travel and love across the ages.

This short story was a free download from the author's website.

Could it be that love transcends time and physical being?
Told with a sense of humor, this was a very enjoyable quick read.
