Time Travel Romance > Woke Up in Another Body

Hi - I have been going crazy looking for this book - I read it a while ago. It is about a woman who wakes up in the past in another woman's body. That woman is married to an earl (I think) who hates her because she is cruel. She hits her servants and cheats on her husband. And the new woman in her body is the total opposite and makes the husband fall in love with her. (Not Awaken My Love by Robin Shone)

Please help! Thanks!

I think the book maybe "Once in every life" by Kristen Hannah

Tess Gregory is a successful research scientist with a poignant past when her deafness keeps her from hearing and avoiding an oncoming bus. Because her life has been so unsatisfactory and truncated, she is given a chance at a new one. A guardian angel escorts Tess to the "theater of second chances," where her options consist of choosing among several different men to accompany in her next go-round. What she fails to understand is that the appealing man and newborn baby on whom she settles are living in the year 1873. On the positive side, Tess has been reincarnated in the body of a drop-dead gorgeous new mother complete with curly blond hair and perfect hearing. As for the down side, the woman whose body she now inhabits has been unspeakably cruel to her husband and daughters, so that they are afraid of her. Before her situation is resolved she uses her modern psychiatric knowledge to help a dyslexic daughter learn to read, as well to cure her husband of the post-traumatic stress disorder he suffers from as a result of having fought in the Civil War. While not all of the details are historically right--much of the language sounds up-to-the-minute--the heroine's pluck and imagination are always engaging. Hannah wrote The Enchantment.

I am also looking for an out of body novel. In mine the heroine is a modern women (90's I think) who is sent into the body of a younger women who is a mail order bride for a very nice and (non experienced-sex wise) man.

Danielle,
I have been searching for that book for a very long time. I think its by Catherine Coulter but I cannot think of the name. All of the one's that I have tried was not the right one.
