I LOVE researching the past and how people lived. Little things, like: What did people do about toilet paper in 1880? When were pockets added to men's trousers? What was Queen Victoria's favorite dessert? (I'll give you a hint: Cherries Jubilee was created for her Jubilee celebrations c 1897.) When writing Scandalous Lovers I was as delighted as my heroine to find that the Victoria Train Station in London 1888 had self-flushing toilets. I also love my readers. Their support make the trials of writing worth while.(less)

Description: <i>Robin Schone's debut romance was an immediate sensation and a perfect introduction to her groundbreaking style. In this new edition of her classic tale, she offers her trademark blend of suspense and passion...with a surprising twist.</i> Thirty-nine-year-old Elaine Metcliffe awakens in another century, in another woman's bed, inside another woman's body, married to another woman's husband. Charles Mortimer, a virile 19th century English baron, is a far cry from her own 20th century husband. Bent on seducing the resentful young bride he believes her to be, Charles educates Elaine in practices of physical pleasure she has never dared imagine. Torn between fidelity to the passionless man she left behind and the exquisite temptation of Charles's touch, Elaine must uncover the dark mystery responsible for her transport to another time and place - and chart the course of her own destiny.
