Book Description

May 15 2012
The portal to an alternate world was the start of all her troubles - or was it?

When Eve Carpenter lands with a splash in the Thames, it's not the London or England she's used to. No one has a telephone or knows what a computer is. England's a third world country and Princess Di is still alive. But worst of all, everyone thinks Eve's a spy.

Including Major Harker who has his own problems. His sworn enemy is looking for a promotion. The general wants him to undertake some ridiculous mission to capture a computer, which Harker vaguely envisions running wild somewhere in Yorkshire. Turns out the best person to help him is Eve.

She claims to be a popstar. Harker doesn't know what a popstar is, although he suspects it's a fancy foreign word for 'spy'. Eve knows all about computers, and electricity. Eve is dangerous. There's every possibility she's mad.

And Harker is falling in love with her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Written and Fast Paced April 8 2011
By John R. Bruning - Published on
Kate Johnson's imagination once again has created an interesting and unique story, set in a backdrop that will cause your jaw to fall. Sharp writing, engaging characters, and a steamy love story--this is a book that will keep you entertained from the first page to the last. Highly recommended.

My Thoughts:

I do enjoy a good alternative world kind of book. It's so fun to see what change if that or this happened or didn't happen. And it this book is was downhill all the way for England.

England was still a Catholic country, and had never built a large empire. Instead this glory had gone to France. There had been no WWI but there had been a "WWII" and sadly England had chosen the wrong side there. But there are more changes, no one discovered America, and poor old England is a third world country where only the army or the very rich own a phone and no one has a computer. Civil War is also tearing it apart.

Now doesn't that sound fun, it sure does. The country is bleak and in ruins. People are soldiering on, and the author has certainly created an interesting alternative world. One I really enjoyed reading about. Into all this Eve suddenly appears, she is sure something else and I liked her. If I had to say anything negative it was that she sure knew her computers, ok that is not negative, I just mean was she actually that good? Cos I could certainly not open one and see that a screw is loose. Anyway, perhaps she was, good for her cos the plot does need to go on ;) Moving along...The lead male character is Major Harker, kind of a brooding soldier type and even when he is all commands and all that I still fell for him. Then we also have some minor characters that help to bring life to this book.

What do we have so far.. awesome world! Good characters, a thrilling plot about hunting down a computer and moving through a dangerous warzone (people will get shot), and a budding romance between a couple that keep arguing.


I did not want to put it down because I needed to know what would happen. I would recommend this one too, oh this is hard, romance fans, suspense fans, steampunk fans (not the same but it works in a way), and all the rest of you too because it was a great book. And I sure hope the author writes something more like this book.


Hard to put down!

I wasn't sure about this bok when I read the description, but since I enjoyed her Sophie Greene books so much, decided to try it. This was a really great book with characters you actually care about. Loved the alternative England.

5.0 out of 5 stars In a genre of its own Sept. 13 2012
By Beadyjan - Published on
I'd seen this book reviewed and liked the concept, I love the idea of time travel. So when I saw the kindle version on offer I snapped it up.

It's from the folks at Choc-lit so I was expecting romance - I think this is about one of THE most romantic love stories I've ever read yet has a light humorous touch amidst the quite violent background.

It begins when Eve, a has been celebrity, ex member of a girl band is taking part in a show something like "I'm a celebrity get me out of here" and has to paraglide above the River Thames, but the jump goes wrong and she plummets into the water - to find she has somehow fallen through a hole into another London. Pulled from the murky waters of the river she finds herself in a parallel England currently at war where only the very rich have any kind of technology and where she is suspected of being a spy. When she tries to explain herself what she says sound completely bonkers so they decide as it can't be proven that she's a spy she must be insane and lock her up in an asylum!

Then she meets Major Will Harker, he's rough, tough grubby and grumpy and determined to find out just what it is Eve's hiding and the 2 are destined to clash and misunderstand each other time and time again whilst being physically attracted to each other.

What ensues is a paranormal romance of a different kind, a passionate love story and a clash of worlds and cultures as well as 2 minds fighting not to be drawn towards each other in a love that's doomed to be hopeless.

Theres a lot of fighting and military events but somehow it all just works really really well. I'm not usually much of a fan of paranormal romances but this is so refreshingly different. As in most Choc-lit romances we are treated to the male perpective as well as the female and this helps us get inside the mind of Will as well as Eve. He really is a hero I'd not think I'd be drawn to, scarred of body, divorced, killer of men, rough at the edges but oh he's SO darned sexy!

If you like lots of love and romance in a different setting do give the Untied Kingdom a try. I really enjoyed it and would like to read a sequel just to find out what happens afterwards.

I think it might appeal to anyone who enjoyed Outlander (20th Anniversary Edition): A Novel although its much more contemporary.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine hero May 9 2011

Harker is a hoot--loyal, stubborn, funny and brave. If there's a Best Hero of the Year award, I'd vote for him. And Eve's no slouch herself. She recovers from her setbacks without the usual whining from the time-traveling (in this case alternate universe-traveling) heroine.

It's hard to imagine thinking of a book that set in a dreary war-time world as fun, but this one usually is.
