A modern girl’s guide to seducing Mr. Darcy
When Ella Briley asked her lucky-in-love friends to set her up for an office party, she was expecting a blind date. Instead, she’s pulled through a magic mirror and into the past…straight into the arms of her very own Mr. Darcy.
Patrick Meadowfair, earl of Fairhaven, is too noble for his own good. To save a female friend from what is sure to be a loveless marriage, he’s agreed to whisk her off to wed the man she truly wants. But all goes awry when Patrick mistakes Ella for the would-be bride and kidnaps her instead.
Centuries away from everything she knows, Ella’s finally found a man who heats her blood and leaves her breathless. Too bad he’s such a perfect gentleman. Yet the reluctant rake may just find this modern girl far too tempting for even the noblest of men to resist…
Today we are pleased to sit down with author Gina Lamm, whose title, Kiss the Earl, is out this April. To celebrate the release of this fun time-slip novel Gina’s here to share a snippet from the book with a time-travel tip for aspiring adventurers!
“He gave her a look but didn’t comment on her colorful choice of words.
“When we reach the inn, I shall pay for your accommodation. It is the least I can do for putting you in this predicament.”
The reply was automatic. She hadn’t really thought about how she’d pay for the room at the inn. Or food, for that matter. Or clothes that wouldn’t make people automatically assume she was a streetwalker. She stopped dead in the middle of the road as reality came crashing down over her. This was bad. This wasn’t just bad, this was extra, super-duper bad with a side of awful sauce. This was comic book–worthy bad. Somewhere a mustachioed villain was cackling and rubbing his hands together.”
Gina’s Time Travel Tip – Temporal journeys are usually fraught with difficulty. Make use of what you’ve got! Maybe you could trade your smartphone for some food. Or your ridiculous high heels for some sensible shoes. Improvise!
