WARNING: This book contains a proper English earl, whose frozen heart hides a tortured soul, and a feisty modern-day heroine determined to make the man see things her way. With a lovable cast of characters this book will earn a place on the keeper shelf.
Thrown back to the year 1897, Victoria Ashton is mistaken for, and forced to impersonate, the spiteful, unfaithful Countess of Guildford. Despite Victoria’s attempts to convince the earl she’s not his wife, her double’s infidelity and lies make it difficult, especially when Victoria falls in love with a man who loathes her.
Nicholas Thornhill, Earl of Guildford is plagued with rumors he murdered his missing wife. When she unexpectedly reappears, he scoffs at her latest in a long string of lies. But the changes in Victoria make him to alter his opinion as he forges a bond with her that crosses the boundaries of time.

I was touched by her relationship with Edmund. She cared and protected him. Nicholas was a proud and powerful man who had difficulty understanding the changes in his wife. I loved watching him learn to trust and love her. When he finally admitted his feeling, I shed tears. Monica Burns has written an extraordinary Time Travel romance that left me breathless. I loved Forever Mine!
Have we met before?
Time travel romance stories are sometimes difficult to read and write because you are basically writing two stories at the same time and you need to stay true to the period that you're writing about. At times I found Ms. Burns appeared to write in the same voice for both periods. When I was reading in the 1800's, I still felt as though it was present day (police, instead of constables or the watch). However, none of this took away for the story.
Both, the hero- Nicholas and the heroine- Victoria, were strong characters that were a good match. From their initial meeting to meeting up again, you felt their connection. The way in which Ms. Burns traveled between present day to the past was creative and you always knew when a "travel" or switch was about to occur.
I enjoyed the story line. I know the story was about the love between the main characters, but I found I wanted to know the story behind the villain and his group of merry men and woman. Forever Mine is truly a book worth reading. The inconstancies of the language does not take away from the story.
