Well, two reasons: 1) it's made of the kind of awesome that typifies Jane in June; 2) it's (partially) set in 18th century London, so as far as I'm concerned, it's apt. The way I see it, sometimes when you're craving Jane, you're really craving the time period - perhaps this international best seller will do...
But you still want to know why I'm posting about Ruby Red, right? Oh, that's an easy one: I want to give you a copy.
Check it out:
Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era! Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon, the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust.

Leave a comment telling me whether you would or would not like to time-travel and why.
Make sure I have a way to contact you (if your profile is emailable, that is fine)
