When Addy is swept back in time, she couldn't be happier to leave her miserable life behind. Now she's mistaken for Lady Matilda, the pampered ward of the king. If Addy can play her part, she'll have glorious gowns, jewels, and something she's always longed for—the respect and admiration of others. But then she meets Will, the falconer's son with sky blue eyes, who unsettles all her plans.
From shipwrecks to castle dungeons, from betrothals to hidden conspiracies, Addy finds herself in a world where she's not the only one with a dangerous secret. When she discovers the truth, Addy must take matters into her own hands. The stakes? Her chance at true love . . . and the life she's meant to live.
Review: Meh. Not particularly good or bad. In the very beginning, I didn't understand what was going on because I thought this book took place in present day. Then I read the little summary on the copyrights page, and it turns out that Addy's time is the year 1913. Huh. Also, I'm getting tired of all the romance. Not just in this book but in what it seems like every single book. I get that romance was the whole point of the book, but still.
