Alys Dewitt's sister is getting married. Lucky for her she gets to be the maid of honor in a Regency themed wedding at an actual Ducal estate in England. While attending the wedding, she falls through a time hole and wakes up on a beach in 1815. Everything is strange, wondrous, not at all as she expected it to be.
James Kendall, the Duke of Weston returns from war to find an injured woman on his estate. She mumbles strange phrases and keeps calling him by another name. Thinking her a bit mad from her wounds, he takes her to the manor and calls for a doctor.
Will they give into their mutual desires, or will Alys find a way back to her own time?
