it was amazing

Book 2. Eliza gets her Duke

In a Man of Character, Eliza asks for Cat to write her into a Regency Romance and send her back in time to find a love match with a Duke. I truly enjoyed this time travel story. The only part that rang some what jaringly came from the fact that Eliza was presented as a literature scholar working on her Ph.D. with a dissertation on Jane Austin. She was a expert in the Regency period. Upon her arrival she made consistent glaring errors in speech and behavior, which would have been fun if she were merely a Austin enthusiast. But for someone who was up to Ph.D. level it was disturbing. Calling people by their first names without their permission upon first introduction comes to mind. She even realizes that she is doing this, but seems to continue anyway. Later in the book she manages to calm down but is bemoaning the loss of plumbing and other modern innovations. I Also wonder why she didn't take a solar charger for her cell phone. Well maybe I am being a bit picky, for I enjoyed it.
