Breathe in, breathe out, shoulders loose, stay relaxed: prepare yourself for a magical journey back in time to London in 1816

An exchange year in London – Zoe is convinced her life couldn’t get any better than this. But then, waking up after a party she finds herself back in 1816, as a maid to shy Miss Lucie. Lucie is terrified of making her debut at this year’s ball season. But don’t worry! Zoe knows what to do. As the first ball approaches, Zoe not only makes Miss Lucie shine, she also meets young Lord Falcon-Smith who, as it turns out, is also a time traveller. In order to return to their own time, Zoe and the Lord are forced to work together. But this is not so easy considering their pronounced mutual dislike and the strict rules of decency inherent to this age. The real challenge, however, is to find out what lies behind the Hidden Society, a dangerous, secret society that controls the magic of time travel, and to which the teenagers owe their historical excursion. And to cap it all, soon there is evidence that their time in the past is about to run out ...

  • Romantic, funny and suspenseful – a love story with a time-travel twist and a dash of Bridgerton
  • With her modern, casual narrative voice, Zoe is the ideal ‘travel companion’ to historical London
  • Volume II to be published in October 2022
