Must Love Breeches: A Time Travel Romance

She’s finally met the man of her dreams. There’s only one problem: he lives in a different century.

“A fresh, charming new voice” – New York Times bestselling author Tessa Dare

The book trailer was profiled on Aug 29, 2014 on USAToday’s HEA column!



A mysterious artifact zaps Isabelle Rochon to pre-Victorian England, but before she understands the card case’s significance a thief steals it. Now she must find the artifact, navigate the pitfalls of a stiffly polite London, keep her time-traveling origins a secret, and resist her growing attraction to Lord Montagu, the Vicious Viscount so hot, he curls her toes.

To Lord Montagu nothing makes more sense than keeping his distance from the strange but lovely Colonial. However, when his scheme for revenge reaches a stalemate, he convinces Isabelle to masquerade as his fiancée. What he did not bargain on is being drawn to her intellectually as well as physically.

Lord Montagu’s now constant presence overthrows her equilibrium and her common sense. Isabelle thought all she wanted was to return home, but as passion flares between them, she must decide when her true home—as well as her heart—lies.

reviewertoppick2… clever, original, and so good that you want more as soon as you put it down. It’s a delicious mash up with something for time travel romance lovers, Jane Austen devotees, and those who simply enjoy a fresh take on historical romance. Her unique premise combines the best elements of contemporary and historical romance, while incorporating all of the fish-out-of-water elements a time travel romance.
a Night Owl Reviews Top Pick, 4.5 stars

Indtale-Magazine-logo-150Time travel is a tricky genre to play in and “Must Love Breeches” broaches the subject well, delving into the past with ease, and returning to the story’s present with deft ability.

Man oh man, was their chemistry awesome!! I loved how they played off each other mentally but when the physical happened….YOWZERS!!!!!
Angie with TwinsieTalk, 5 stars

The moment I started reading this book I immediately thought of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Vierra Rigler. The concept of time travelling to one of my favourite time periods. I immediately fell in love with the concept and the plot! This book was amazing! A definite top ten contender and I can’t wait to re-read it as I breathlessly read as fast as I could to learn what would happen next.
Kiltsandswords, 5 stars

The enchanting push-pull dynamic between the two of them builds beautifully into a convincing love story. I even shed a small tear at one point – that’s how much they got to me! … All in all, Must Love Breeches was a fabulous read, one I would happily recommend to my fellow romance junkies. It’s fun, romantic, and sensual, and an excellent start to what looks to be a promising series.
Lynsey with the Demon Librarian, 4 stars

Ms. Quarles has a tremendous talent for writing. This time travel historical romance makes for a captivating read. It left me wishing the book went on forever. The dialogue, all the charming wit, and amazing sex scenes make the story a page turner. Her name should be beside Karen Marie Moning and Diana Gabaldon.

    • It’s still in submission rounds with traditional publishers (over a year now!) but if that doesn’t pan out, I will self-publish this puppy!
