Review: Debutantes Don't Date by Kristina O'Grady

At the stroke of midnight...

One minute Grace Lancaster is an overworked event manager organising 2013’s New Year’s Eve ball… The next she’s kissing a rather gorgeous man at the Regency themed party. Everyone’s entitled to an out-of-character New Year’s kiss, right? Except Jasper Mossman, Earl of Bingham, isn’t at a costume party - he’s a real-life gentleman from 1813...

And, it seems, kissing a man in Regency London has consequences!

What Grace considers normal behaviour scandalises Regency society and so far she’s provided the irrepressible gossips of the ton with a season’s worth of conversation! In a scramble to protect her reputation, as well as his own, Jasper insists that they marry for the sake of her honour. Marrying Mr Darcy might be a 21st century girl’s dream – but the reality is far from romantic. Corsets are uncomfortable, no running water is disastrous! Grace had always planned on falling in love before she got married, but when Jasper takes her in his arms she just might believe she’s finally found her very own Prince Charming.

My Review:

As an event manager, Grace Lancaster is hard at work making sure that the New Year's Eve ball is a success. But at midnight the lights go out and she accidentally suffers an accident that will cost her to time travel back in time to an actual Regency ball. When Jasper Mossoman, the Earl of Bingham, rescues her, she is taken back by his looks and pulls him away from everyone at the ball and kisses him. Now that doesn't go too well and they get caught. Jasper thinks fast and he tells everyone that the women he just kissed is his fiance, insisting Grace that they get married for her honor. Since Grace feels disorientated and doesn't know how to go back to her time. She meets Jasper's sister and tells her that she is from the future and that's when story takes its course. 

I enjoyed reading the book, the characters seem to have good chemistry with each other. Yet everything felt a bit too rushed. The concept sounded great, but there could have been more improvements throughout the book. Overall, the book was a quick read filled with romance and I would recommend it to those wanting to read something sweet and short.
