After her husband (Julian) dies, Jane Austen expert/student Lou (aka Loulou) travels to England to consult with Peter and Chris, a gay couple who are remodeling a Regency-era house.  There Lou meets two men who appeal to her in different ways - Mac and Rob.

Peter and Chris want their guests to have the full Regency experience, complete with costumes and lack of most modern amenities (cell phones, modern undergarments, etc.)  As Lou helps her friends get their house in order, she also finds time to participate in both traditional and untraditional activities.

Lou is attracted to Mac, but a misunderstanding leaves them at odds with each other.  During this time, Lou begins associating with the "help."  Although distinctly in the "downstairs" category of the "upstairs/downstairs" dynamic, Rob provides Lou with the support she needs at a trying time.

By the end of the book, Lou has had a terrible shock and both men want to ease her pain.  She faces a difficult decision between Mac and Rob and discovers there's really only one choice she can make.
