Welcome to Puddling‑on‑the‑Wold, where the sons and daughters of Victorian nobility come for a little rest, recuperation, and “rehab,” in this brand-new series of rebellious romance from Maggie Robinson.
After a harrowing tour of duty abroad, Captain Lord Henry Challoner fought to keep his memories at bay with two of his preferred vices: liquor and ladies. But the gin did more harm than good—as did Henry’s romantic entanglements, since he was supposed to be finding a suitable bride. Next stop: The tiny village of Gloucestershire, where Henry can finally sober up without distraction or temptation. Or so he thinks…
A simple country schoolteacher, Rachel Everett was never meant to cross paths with a gentleman such as Henry. What could such a worldly man ever see in her? As it turns out, everything. Beautiful, fiercely intelligent Rachel is Henry’s dream woman—and wife. Such a match would be scandalous for his family of course, and Rachel has no business meddling with a resident at the famed, rather draconian, Puddling Rehabilitation Foundation. All the better, for two lost souls with nothing to lose—and oh so very much to gain.
Read an Excerpt:
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. My first impression from the cover art left me skeptical as to if this book would meet my expectations.
As it turned out I really liked this book and would recommend the read.
It is a delight rendition of love and laughter centered around the crazy mixed up world of Puddling‑on‑the‑Wold. The characters are wonderfully developed and the storyline is truly delightful.
I found myself reading into the early morning hours to make certain not to miss one moment. I look forward to more by this author.
I gave this book 4.5 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and 3of 5 flames for heat.
I just feel it needs better cover art to attract the attention it deserves.

In the last ten years, Carolly Hanson has died six times. First in a car crash, then of TB. Beaten, stoned, and shot in the back. The last time, she suffocated from pneumonia.
Now she’s awake, again, and in the arms of James Oscar Henry Northram, Earl of Traynern.
Carolly Hanson must be in training to be an angel. Why else would she keep dying and reappearing in different places and times? Clearly she is to help people, help them find true love, if she is to win her wings.
And the handsome Earl, clearly a stiff-backed, dark-brooding man of means, will be her next victim—er, beneficiary.
James Oscar Henry Northram is fascinated by Carolly’s odd sense of humor, and compelled by her strange forthright manner and complete lack of interest in trapping him into marriage.
He also thinks poor Carolly is a Bedlam escapee and isn’t the least bit interested in the women she keeps pushing in his direction.
Why must Carolly be forced to suffer death only to live again? Could the answer be as close as his embrace?
“A refreshingly unique “time travel” (loosely speaking) for fans who delight in something rather different.” ~Harriet Klausner, Amazon.com #1 reviewer
