This book is a great introduction to a six book serial due to be released over the next several months. We are introduced to Francine, our accidental time traveling heroine, and Gideon, 10th Duke of Roxleigh, whose character lives with a troubled past. Through a family theory, a little time travel, and a lot of fate? Destiny? Francine is thrown into Gideon's century and arms. We watch as their story begins to unfold as the reluctant Gideon does not want to accept the new feelings that are stirring for Francine. I really do not want to say too much here, afraid that I'll give too much of the story away, and what fun is that?

I have to tell you, though, that Ms. LeBlanc paints a vibrant, colorful, textured scene with her words. What makes this book unique, at least to me, is that within her story are photographs that take you further into her minds eye. This is a book that you will not want to put down once you start it; and it is enough of a tease to set you up for book two, Found, due out in January 2012.

Lela Whitus So far, this book is great! Jenn writes with such imagery and detail, you feel as if you are in the story, an added bonus is the beautiful photos that are incorporated into the book.

Lela Whitus If you are looking for a break, a way to lose yourself for a few hours this week, look no farther. What a cool idea of an illustrated romance! No, its not pop your eyes out porn, but beautiful photos that take you a step further into the writers eye (it's neat to see what she envisioned her characters as, rather than me superimposing my own idea). This is a wonderful tease of a story that will leave you anticipating the second book in this six book serial. There is almost an innocence to book one as we watch the fumbling nerves of the hero who does not want to accept his feelings for the stranger who is now a guest in his house. A heroine with no idea how she went from twentieth century comforts, to a different century, the only thing she is certain of is her attraction to the Lord of the Manor. Am I eager to find out what happens next? Definitely. Would I recommend this to family and friends? Absolutely!
