Review: Back to His Lordship by Jen Geigle Johnson

Falling in love with an Earl in 1815 was the easy part. The hard part? Leaving him behind.

Evaline Johansen, daughter of mega billionaire tycoon feels isolated and alone until she stumbles upon a portrait gallery and sees herself hanging on the wall. The trouble is, she’s never been there before and doesn’t know the artist.

Lord Oliver Hereford doesn’t know what to do with this new, outspoken, energetic woman who has taken the ton by surprise. She may be London’s new sweetheart, but will he succumb to his initial attraction?

When his confirmed bachelorhood is challenged by the one woman who can, Lord Hereford doesn’t know he’s headed for a much greater choice than whether or not to love.

Read this delightful time travel romance for a journey back into the Regency time period through a modern woman’s eyes.

My Thoughts:

This was a delightful regency/modern time-travel romance. I love the idea of the Twickenham Estate, run by fae who protect the place where magic bleeds into the mortal realm- and allow the accidental travelers to move through a painting to a different time every full moon.

There is something to be said about the idea of finding a proper, English lord to fall in love with- and it seems that proper, English lords are rather fond of flirtatious, independent American women from the future, too. Watching our hero and heroine explore whether or not their attraction could survive the differences that not even the hero was aware of was fascinating. And his shock over her desire to kiss an earl being on her bucket list was the best thing ever.

Seeing everyone's mutual friendships and what they would do for mere acquaintances to help with culture shock was also touching. It makes one wonder- would you be willing to give up modern conveniences to have an old-fashioned happily ever after?

I received a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

About the Author:

jen johnson headshot
An award winning author, including the GOLD in Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards, Jen Geigle Johnson discovered her passion for England while kayaking on the Thames near London as a young teenager. 

She once greeted an ancient turtle under the water by grabbing her fin. She knows all about the sound a water-ski makes on glassy water and how to fall down steep moguls with grace. During a study break date in college, she sat on top of a jeep's roll bars up in the mountains and fell in love. 

Now, she loves to share bits of history that might otherwise be forgotten. Whether in Regency England, the French Revolution, or Colonial America, her romance novels are much like life is supposed to be: full of adventure.
