Katz Almira’s mission is clear—travel to the past, steal the note that ruins the world, travel back to the present. Easy. She’s the best pickpocket Time Weavers, Inc. has ever had. Posing as a poor widow in Regency London, she convinces her target, Lord John Byron, a man as sexy as he is wealthy, to take her in off the streets. But at her request to keep her hidden, instead of his cushy manor, he allows her to stay in a warehouse full of orphan boys he cares for there.
It’s the perfect place to hide, and bonus, her new roommates can help her find the mysterious note. With John as their pseudo-father, they know what he does every day, and with who. Katz can’t afford any distractions, but she soon finds herself getting attached to the orphans—and John—even helping him plan for their futures.
Each day she spends in the past is another day closer to her deadline, another day closer to returning to her own time, and another day John and this makeshift family get dangerously closer to her heart. But Katz staying in the past would have dire consequences for them all…
It’s no secret I love the Regency period in historical romance. I enjoy a good time travel romance and having our heroine go back to a Regency London heavily influenced by Oliver Twist. Katz was spunky and had walled off her emotions after a truly tragic childhood. Being among a group of boys who reminded her of her youth helped open up her heart once again.
I loved the boys. They were adorable and heartbreaking at the same time. To think the children ranging from 6-16 had to live in those circumstances is an unimaginable horror. I was pleased they had good outcomes.
This was a fun, imaginative read. It’s part of a series with an overarching plot but each book features a new couple.
