TOUCHING TIME by B.W. Haggart - A Reader's Opinion
A Reader's Opinion
Touching Time is an engaging time-time travel romance with charming characters, and an interesting portrayal of how an eighteenth-century lady adapts to a modern world—and a modern man.
Time-travel romance is not my usual genre, however, as a first-time reader of B.W. Haggart, I was delighted with how the author portrayed Victoria Covington's struggles and adjustments to her new existence. The ofttimes gruff Sam Dalton sensed something wasn't quite right with Victoria's sudden appearance at Belton Park, but the offer she presented was too good to turn down.
With rare and perfectly-timed circumstances, Victoria emerges from 1818 Belton Park to see Sam in the same place. This beings a journey and relationship between them that is filled with drama, humor, tenderness, and evident chemistry. Touching Time made me smile more than once and kept me hooked to the end.
Victoria Covington is mysteriously propelled two hundred years into the future. She must not only learn to live in the 21st century, but also keep her beloved Belton Park from being sold to a handsome, but ungentlemanly American, who simply wants the estate to further his own business plans.
Victoria had given up hope of finding a husband among the heiress-hunting ton and contented herself living on her beloved family estate, Belton Park. When reality shifts around her, she doesn’t realize that she’s traveled to the year 2019. She is sure she’s going mad, but fortunately her distant cousin, the Viscount William Covington, recognizes her from her portrait, and guesses she is the famous family member who mysteriously vanished in 1818.
Sam Dalton, a successful real estate developer from America, wants to refashion Belton Park into a conference center with a Regency theme. He is betting the future of his company on the acquisition.
Victoria is shocked to learn the viscount is going to sell Belton Park to Dalton. She is determined to save her family lands while navigating modern society.
Sam is just as determined to own Belton.
Victoria must discover a way to keep Belton in the family while keeping her heart safe and reputation intact.
