An avid gamer, Jamie Marten loves to escape into online adventure. But when she falls through an antique mirror into a lavish bedchamber—200 years in the past!—she realizes she may have escaped a little too far.

Micah Axelby, Earl of Dunnington, has just kicked one mistress out of his bed, and isn’t looking to fill it with another—least of all this sassy, nearly naked girl who claims to be from the future. Yet something about her is undeniably enticing…

Jamie and Micah are worlds apart. He’s a peer of the realm. She can barely make rent. She’s wi-fi. He’s horse-drawn. But soon the pair will do anything to avoid a Game Over

When kick ass heroine Jamie Marten is sent back in time at least she ends up in the home of the completely hot Earl of Dunnington, Micah (or Mike as Jamie calls him).

Gina Lamm takes a funny and at times steamy look at what would happen if you sent a modern liberated woman back in time 200 years to meet her soul mate even if he doesn't know he is. Mike has had enough with tragedy and scandal since he has become Earl and just wants to court and marry someone appropriate that wont cause a fuss. Jamie as to learn to adapt to a lot of things we take for granted all the while trying to avoid the heartbreak that she is afraid will come if she falls for Mike.

The sexual tension between Mike and Jamie builds and builds for about 3/4 of the book and then explodes in some pretty hot moments. The heroine is funny, foul mouthed and frustrating while our hero is sweet, sexy and tries to be sensitive. This is an enjoyable read and looks to be the start of a fun new series.

About this author
from Gina's Goodreads page
Becoming a magician proved to be less interesting than Gina Lamm had anticipated when she was six, so in her adult life, she’s turned to writing.

This belly-dancing, wisecracking, marshmallow-addicted mother of three energetic fur-children loves nothing more than penning funny, emotional tales of love, lust, and entertaining mishaps.

Married to a real live superhero, she and her family live in North Carolina, surrounded by tobacco farms, possums, and the occasional hurricane.
