How far would you go to pursue your heart's desire?
When Devon Phoenix, a nineteenth-century Englishman, becomes linked to his soul mate through the discovery of a buried family secret, he must do the impossible. His longing to pursue her demands he cross the centuries to present day. But his world is shaken to its core when he learns he must protect her from men he thought to be only myths. Drawn by her lineage, these men will go to great lengths to have her.
Out at a nightclub, Boston artist and history buff Elz Valli has no idea her grounded life is about to be uprooted. She encounters Devon and realizes this striking and intellectual warrior not only looks like the 12th Duke of Seton—he is. Consumed by the flames that engulf them, there is no turning back as Devon’s presence in today’s world ignites raging fires—both good and evil.
Though Devon’s love is one that reaches through time, it is not without cost. Now he must decide if Elz is worth the price.
Could hardly put it down to eat
The story progresses at a good pace and doesn’t stay too long describing unnecessary scenarios. I like that because, I don’t really care that the dress Pris was wearing was hand tailored by a woman whose husband was a farmer whose brother was a horse thief who married an orphan. And the color was a shade of green that matched her eyes that were the color of a field washed in rain falling from the sky as if angles cried. You know, that kind of thing. Unless knowing that angles cried to make her eyes that color is important to the story. The descriptions in the book are there to allow the reader to imagine the extreme details yet still feel as if you know what the author was getting at.
As the story is told by each character, you’re allowed to understand the motives behind the misunderstandings. I really like how those misunderstandings don’t linger and ruin the story. The characters are mature and thoughtful.
There’s an underlying thread that isn’t fully explored in the first book which only makes me want to drop everything and get the second book.
The story is a bit magical; which I liked. I can’t wait to find out what happens when “Mr. Creepy” starts making his moves.
This was an enchanting and engaging story but spell check can not take the place of professional editing. I almost trashed this book when I read the coach “winded” up the drive…Seriously? It should have been “wound”. I’m sure I’ve “blowed” this all out of proportion, but this type of error truly undermines the integrity of the author. Editing is the difference between a “glass petition” and a glass partition. Its CONTEXT. The subsequent titles in this series are not enough temptation for me to suffer the efforts of this amateur writer.
