Debutantes Don't Date: A historical regency romance, perfect for fans of Netflix’s Bridgerton! (Time-Travel to Regency England, Book 1) Kindle Edition
At the stroke of midnight…
One minute Grace Lancaster is an overworked event manager organising 2013’s New Year’s Eve ball… The next she’s kissing a rather gorgeous man at the Regency themed party. Everyone’s entitled to an out-of-character New Year’s kiss, right? Except Jasper Mossman, Earl of Bingham, isn’t at a costume party - he’s a real-life gentleman from 1813…
And, it seems, kissing a man in Regency London has consequences!
What Grace considers normal behaviour scandalises Regency society and so far she’s provided the irrepressible gossips of the ton with a season’s worth of conversation! In a scramble to protect her reputation, as well as his own, Jasper insists that they marry for the sake of her honour. Marrying Mr Darcy might be a 21st century girl’s dream – but the reality is far from romantic. Corsets are uncomfortable, no running water is disastrous! Grace had always planned on falling in love before she got married, but when Jasper takes her in his arms she just might believe she’s finally found her very own Prince Charming.

About the Author
KRISTINA O’GRADY has always loved telling a good story. She took up writing at a young age and spent many hours – when she should have been doing her math homework – scribbling romance stories in a book she hid in her sock drawer.
She grew up on a cattle ranch in Western Canada and loves reminiscing by writing about cowboys and their horses.
In 2000 Kristina met her own knight in shining armour/cowboy who swept her off her feet and across the world to New Zealand, where she now lives on a sheep and beef farm with her amazingly supportive husband, three gorgeous young kids, seven working dogs and one very needy cat.

The Dukes and Duchesses of Kensington have been putting on the "Kensington King's and Queens New Years' Eve ball for generations - in fact it dates back to regency times, as Grace finds out for herself.
As the clocks are striking midnight there is what appears to be a power cut, and Grace is transported back 200 years - the New Year in which a rather dazed Grace arrives is not 2014 but 1814. She does not at first realise what has happened and after she kisses a very handsome man who helps her to her feet - and because they are seen kissing and she is dressed as a debutante, his only honourable course of action is to propose marriage.
Before she knows it Grace finds herself engaged to the dashing Earl Bingham, is introduced to her multiple-greats grandfather Lord Lancaster (who presumes her to be the daughter, rather than the multiple-greats grand-daughter, of his son who departed years before for America) and has become the target for a criminal gang for whom her appearance was a serious inconvenience ...
Meanwhile she has to come to terms with no signal for her mobile phone, no modern central heating and plumbing, and having to wear real 19th century clothes, not just costume ones ...
This is an entertaining, well-written and funny novel. The author has written a second time travel romance in the series which is called, "Damsel in Distress" and if you like this one you will probably like that too, but they can be read as stand-alone novels.
Grace Lancaster takes a short break from her work as a party organizer on New Year's Eve in 2013 and quickly downed a couple of glasses of champagne. She sees a price of jewelry on the floor and bends to pick it up, and the lights go out. When they come back on, Grace has fallen and her skirts are showing off her legs--but she is no longer in 2013...
Lord Bingham has been expected to ask Lady Anne to marry him for years, but he's kept putting it off. Why? Then Grace shows up at the ball, drags him off to a dark alcove and tries to have her way with him! He finds himself engaged to Grace instead of Lady Anne.
Major problem for Lady Anne's brother, who has been living off expectations for years. He MUST get his sister married to Lord Bingham and he isn't picky about how it's done.
Can Grace be kept safe? How can Anne and Grace help to stop him? And a 21st century method of self defense helps out!
A more thorough editing would be in order.
