Chrissie Hayward, NYC fashion photographer and thoroughly modern gal, has never been one to swoon over fairytales. So when a mysterious gypsy tells Chrissie that she is a "gentle soul who would tame an outlaw's thirst for revenge," she's not totally convinced the woman isn't a couple of beans short of a frapuccino. But when Chrissie finds herself suddenly transported back in time to rescue her crazy coworker Kat, she's ready to believe anything is possible! If only she'd known she was going to meet her "true love," a hottie in Sherwood Forest, Chrissie would have worn better shoes!

 

But it turns out Robin of Locksley, aka the real Robin Hood, isn't exactly a Prince Charming. That bit about robbing the rich to feed the poor? He evidently hasn't gotten the memo yet. In fact, he's less a folk hero and more a brooding bad boy. Not to mention his not-so-merry men who are under the impression that Chrissie is actually a boy. I mean, sure, she's not exactly stacked, but still! Nonetheless, Robin is loyal, brave, and handsome as sin. If Chrissie could just get him with the program, she knows she could right his wagon and get these boyz'n the wood to be heroes of the realm instead of twerps in tights. But if she's not careful, Chrissie may find this prince of thieves stealing her heart...

Unless Dora Duncan can stop it, it's going to be another St. Valentine's Day Massacre. A year ago, her (now ex) boyfriend Nick stood her up on the most romantic day of the year at the worst possible moment. In the aftermath, Dora gave up her career TV reporting on real news, and took a fluffier job reporting on such important stories as "Too Stressed for Sex." And though such clips have a certain relevance, things in Dora's life have been a whole lot quieter. Maybe too quiet.

 

Until now.

 

Now Dora's suddenly being drafted for a very special assignment: she's gotta go back in time to stop that very same Nick from making a mess of history. Dora's first reaction? Clearly someone is playing a joke on her. But when she suddenly finds herself back in a place where everybody speaks easy and cuts a rug, she realizes the joke's on her...and this old Chicago ain't no musical. Here, there are tommy guns and torpedoes, guys and dolls, gin joints, flappers, stoolies, rats and a whole lot more; and prohibition means anything but no.

 

It's the 1920s. Time for Dora to roar.

 

Note: This novel was previously published under the title "A Chicago Sweetheart in a Roaring Gin Joint."

Katherine "Kat" Jones is not your typical damsel in distress. She's an outspoken New York City fashion editor, whose job is to claw through the hype and sniff out the trends. But an assignment at a medieval fair suddenly gets out of hand when Kat finds herself not at a modern fair but back in the actual time of King Arthur's court. Suddenly Kat needs every ounce of her 21st century wits to navigate the legend. After all, surviving a magical plot, an evil prince, and a case of mistaken identity—all without changing history or scuffing your Manolos—takes some doing!

 

Luckily, she's got her very own knight in shining armor, Lancelot du Lac, on her side. The honorable-to-a-fault and devastatingly handsome champion insists on helping her out, even though she's not quite sure she wants him to. After all, shouldn't he be off romancing Queen Guenevere or something? Will Kat manage to stay out of trouble long enough to get back to her beloved cappuccinos, cosmopolitans and cashmere? And what will Lancelot's forbidden love mean for the kingdom of Camelot?

 

Note: this novel previous published under the title "A Connecticut Fashionista in King Arthur's Court."
