The reenactment of an eighteenth-century wife sale sounded like fun to Jocelyn Tanner. But then one small pink foil star changed her entire life.
Cast back in time she finds herself inhabiting another woman’s body and she’s being sold to the highest bidder. And a very handsome one at that. No matter that his chauvinistic attitude ruffles her feathers, her heart doesn’t listen to her head. But will her knowledge of the future be her doom or her salvation?
Finding a wife isn’t as easy as Garren Warrick, the Earl of Spenceworth thought. Time was fast running out for him to enter into wedlock or be disowned. He should have spent more time looking over the crop of marriage-minded ladies and less time in his club drinking and avoiding them. Desperate and just a little hungover, he comes upon a wife sale and realizes the solution to his problem is just a sixpence away.
But has he gotten more than he bargained for? Can he unravel the mystery behind the odd words she uses and her obsession with something called ‘ab crunches?’ And what about her claim of being from the future? She’s beautiful and well-educated and when he looks into her soft gray eyes and touches her smooth, warm skin, she steals his heart. But can he truly embrace the growing love without unraveling the mystery behind the odd words she uses and her obsession with something called ‘ab crunches?’ And what about her claim of being from the future?
Little does he know he’s gotten much more for his money than he bargained—she’s beautiful, well-educated, but talks a little oddly and has an obsession with something called ‘ab crunches.’ And let’s not forget her claim of being from the future. But when he looks into her soft gray eyes and touches her smooth, warm skin, his heart ignores it all and he begins to see her as a kindhearted, loving woman with a few little quirks.
This is an updated version of the print book released in 2000. Nelwina's name has been changed to Rose.
