Book Description

The reenactment of an eighteenth-century wife sale sounded like fun to Jocelyn Tanner. But then one small pink foil star changed her entire life.
Cast back in time she finds herself inhabiting another woman’s body and she’s being sold to the highest bidder. And a very handsome one at that. No matter that his chauvinistic attitude ruffles her feathers, her heart doesn’t listen to her head. But will her knowledge of the future be her doom or her salvation?
Finding a wife isn’t as easy as Garren Warrick, the Earl of Spenceworth thought. Time was fast running out for him to enter into wedlock or be disowned. He should have spent more time looking over the crop of marriage-minded ladies and less time in his club drinking and avoiding them. Desperate and just a little hungover, he comes upon a wife sale and realizes the solution to his problem is just a sixpence away.
But has he gotten more than he bargained for? Can he unravel the mystery behind the odd words she uses and her obsession with something called ‘ab crunches?’ And what about her claim of being from the future? She’s beautiful and well-educated and when he looks into her soft gray eyes and touches her smooth, warm skin, she steals his heart. But can he truly embrace the growing love without unraveling the mystery behind the odd words she uses and her obsession with something called ‘ab crunches?’ And what about her claim of being from the future?

Little does he know he’s gotten much more for his money than he bargained—she’s beautiful, well-educated, but talks a little oddly and has an obsession with something called ‘ab crunches.’ And let’s not forget her claim of being from the future. But when he looks into her soft gray eyes and touches her smooth, warm skin, his heart ignores it all and he begins to see her as a kindhearted, loving woman with a few little quirks.

This is an updated version of the print book released in 2000. Nelwina's name has been changed to Rose.
Look for Rose's story, Spenceworth Bride, coming soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars a sheer delight!! 14 Sept. 2002
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The fun begins when Jocelyn Tanner, jilted by her fiance, decides to go ahead and take the wedding trip to England she planned to take with her new husband. On the trip, she participates in a historical reenactment of a wife sale--where she is the wife for sale--and finds herself sold to a man named Garren Warrick for sixpence.
When he carries her off, she thinks the reenactment has gone a bit too far, and she's ready to get back on the tour bus...then slowly comes to realize that she has been transported to eighteenth-century England where she is, indeed, Garren's wife.
"Sixpence Bride" is an engaging time-travel romance. In her debut novel, the author displays a light touch and brings to life a heroine who is both vulnerable and strong and has enough wackiness to accept the strangeness of her situation with humor and practicality. For instance, finding herself in a fuller body, she gets serious about her ab crunches--much to the consternation of the Warrick household. I won't spoil the joke of the character she chooses to portray at a costume party. Suffice it to say that the charm of this story is the big wink the author shares with her readers

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny and extremely unputdownable! 11 May 2005
By Sue Lewendon VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
What can I say? I ordered this book just to try another author. I am so glad that I picked Ms.Farmer. She has a wonderful talent and this was a sheer delight to read! My only complaint is that it was too short! I could have quite happily read on and on about these funny characters.
This is the story. Jocelyn is a modern day woman who is off on holiday to England on her own after being dumped by her fiance, who was supposed to be with her. She ends up at a little village where they re-enact parts of history. Part of this tour is a bride sale. Unluckily for Jocelyn, she is picked out as the tourist who will play the part of the bride being sold! She feels like nothing else could possibly go wrong.
She changes into her period costume and begins to feel faint when she realises that she hasn't eaten. So she sits down and the next thing is that she's now in another century being auctioned off for real! She doesn't realise this straight away though. She thinks that the villagers around her are just over acting their parts and so she goes along with it all.
Enter our dashing male lead, Garron. He has been given an ultimatum by his father that he must marry within a month or lose his inheritance. All because of a little indiscretion with a woman who was as much to blame as he. Unlucky for Garron, all the decent looking women are already betrothed. This is when he happens upon a bride auction! It seems his prayers are answered. Especially when he sees the fine speciman on display! He makes a bid and wins.
He has no intention of behaving like a married man though. Once he settles his wife at his country estate, he is heading back off to London and the fun. Before he can take any actions though, his new bride begins to behave very peculiarly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sixpence Bride 7 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a lovely easy enjoyable read. Not having read anything by this author previously I downloaded this due a Kindle recommendation and the price was to low to resist. I was not disappointed by this book at all. From the first page I was transported into Jocelyn's world and subsequently on her time travel exchange into the 18th century. Whilst there were not any major surprises the story kept my interest throughout and I found myself with a couple of very late nights wanting to know the next stage in Jocelyn's 18th Century adventure. It is humerous in parts especilly when Jocelyn fist arrives in the 18th century thinking everyone is going over the top staying in character and then realises she has a different body, also the masked ball where her husband does not recognise her and his rival gets his commupance.
I am already starting the follow up 'The Spencworth Bride' to see what happens with her 'body/life' exchange Rose

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enticing story ! 29 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As I was browsing through Amazon recommendations I came across this book and I am glad I dowloaded it. I could not put it down and it only took me 1.5 days for the read. Its such a refreshing and funny reading style. The heroin comes from the 21st century and tries to find her place as a lady in the 18th century. She is forced to marry a handsome rougue and needs to decide to stay or return to her time. Very recommendale if you like an entertaining and refreshing read.
