Publisher's Summary

On the day she and her mother escaped her cruel father, Emma Washington vowed to never fall in love. 

Now, Emma is a back-to-school PhD student with bigger and better things to worry about. That is, until one night, exhausted, slightly tipsy, and on her way home from a party, the glaring white light of a car comes crashing toward her, changing her life forever. Instead of waking up in a 21st-century hospital, she finds herself waking up in the backwaters of London, Victorian England, 1881....

Trapped in a time where everything she once knew is considered witchcraft, Emma discovers that Victorian London is a harsh world for a woman without wealth or status. She faces yet another life-changing twist when she learns her only chance of survival depends on the very thing she has tried to avoid her whole life - marriage. As if that isn’t bad enough, she must betroth herself to none other than the most powerful duke in all of England, the notorious and feared Lord William Blackwell. 

But...what begins as a fight for her life might just become a chance to find true love. 

Trapped in Time is the first book in the Time Travel Romance series and can be listened to as a stand-alone novel. It follows Isabella, a Victorian lady from one of England's finest houses, who finds herself waking up in the streets of Philly in the 21st century. How is all of this connected? We shall see....

From the Author: 

Thank you for considering Trapped in Time: A Modern-Historic Love Story. If you love time travel romances, marriage of convenience/rags to riches stories, sexy dukes, sizzling passion with intimate love scenes, and strong heroines, you'll love this tale of danger, steamy romance, and true love.

Fun story, good narration

I actually enjoyed how this story played out. It took me a bit to understand the author's voice. Emma ended up in the past and wanted to do whatever it took to make it home. She was very conscious of the butterfly effect so she used her modern knowledge sparingly. John was such a sweet man but knew his heart quickly. The ending was interesting. This was an audiobook, and Virginia Ferguson did a wonderful job keeping my attention and giving life to Emma, John, and those around them.

I received a copy of the audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

Entertaining and intriguing...

It's an intriguing introduction to a series, though it can also be listened to as a standalone...
Emma, a pharmacy worker and a PhD student from modern day Philadelphia, wakes up in Victorian London after a car hits her in the middle of the road... That's an intriguing starting point for a romance; can Emma survive in a society where women have virtually no rights and where the only way for her to carry out research into time travel is to get married to someone rich and titled...? Will she be able to pretend to be a lady of society when the social norms are so different from those she was used to in the 21st century America? And to what extent can she use her knowledge of chemistry and the future without causing the butterfly effect?... These are the questions that we ask, following Emma in her plight to discover the way home... and the way to her own heart...
The main characters - Emma, John and Lilly - are likeable and nicely written; there are also some villains in the story, whom we dislike right from the start. And although I don't think that all the situations and reactions are quite psychologically logical, generally the tale flows smoothly and keeps you want to go on.

Narration by Ms Ferguson is very well done; the voices match the characters, both male and female, and the pace of her reading is just about right.

Great Entertainment!

You know that creepy feeling you get when something really strange and out of the ordinary happens, well, this is what I felt at the end of this story.
This is an amazing love story between Emma and John.
The bad guy is aptly named William Blackwell (smile) and his hands aren't too clean.
I loved the way Lily takes care of Emma and makes sure she learns how to safely survive in 1881, Victorian England.
This story was really well written. It kept me going, eager to find out what was going to happen next and I loved the interplay between the characters, loving some of them more than others.
The narration was nicely done with interesting and well matched voices helping to make this an enjoyable audio experience.
I am happy to recommend this story and the audiobook.
My voluntary and unbiased review is recorded above.

Very dreamy

I enjoyed listening to the Audible version of this book. I was gifted a copy from the author, Denise Daye. A very romantic tale. Very dreamy. I felt as if I traveled back in time with Emma. In the beginning I was wondering if I could really relate considering Emma’s work as a pharmacy tech as I’m usually on the other side of the counter from them. However, Ms Daye captured my imagination and made it easy for me to envision. I fell in love with the characters even the evil one whom I loved to hate. All in all, I find this book very easy to recommend.

Simple and Lovely

I enjoyed the story and the characters. For me, there was just enough drama to keep me interested yet not annoyed. The same for the characters. I want to know each of their stories. A perfect reading for me at this time.

Okay so I have just started

Normally I don’t write reviews right away but wow. This is only not extremely well written but the fact that THIS IS THE FIRST TIME TRAVEL NOVEL IVE EVER READ THAT HAS REAL ISSUES IN IT! Everything from toilets to healthcare to difference in food to cheap China made clothes and cheap costume jewelry to actual stance and how to ruin it. These are things that have ALWAYS bothered me in books so so so much but she or he nailed it right on the head! Pretty sure because of the fact that the writing is amazing and the fact that they brought this VERY IMPORTANT stuff up I will be reading all of their books. Writer if you are reading this I have to say I give you HUGE HUGE PROPS! Keep doing what your doing because you were made to do it! Like I said I never write a review before reading it but I am just so darn impressed by what I’ve seen so far I am going to follow and read every single book you put out. And I read 1 to 3 books a week. So keep writing cause your my new fav. Pretty sure your everyone’s fav if they have half a brain. LOVE YOUR WORK THANK YOU 🥰

Was not what I expected

There were so many chances for the author to give rich detail. The details were bill at best.

The narrator was so hard to listen to. I just tried making it through the novel since I wasted a credit on it.

A very tedious love story

You could see things coming from a mile away and it was more of a story about how women are treated poorly

Confused ending.

The ending sucked and was a bit confusing. There was no explanation for the end.
