THE CHANGELING BRIDE

Author(s): 

This whimsical tale will leave you laughing with glee as Elle tries to adjust in her newfound home. Ms. Cach spins
a charming and witty tale that is sure to capture your imagination.

When an old lady approaches Wilhelmina March and hands her a slip of pink paper, little does Wilhelmina expect that the coupon "Good for one free Husband, Redeem at Will" is going to send her spiraling through time. She is in for a shock when fairies switch contemporary Wilhelmina with Eleanor Moore, an 18th-century Englishwoman who just died of influenza.

Eleanor is engaged to wed the Earl of Allsbrook and their wedding is only two days away. The reluctant Wilhelmina, now known to all as Elle, is caught up in the whirlwind preparations as tries to blend in. Elle's betrothed, Henry Trevelyan, is not what she expects her "one free Husband" to be. And Henry discovers Elle is far from the spoiled, ill-tempered woman he thought she was.

Theirs was to be a marriage of convenience and Henry had almost given up on the hope that he would find love and companionship. Now it seems he may have found that and a way to save his family's estate by using Elle's extensive inheritance.

But will this pair be able to find love no matter the era?
