Heat Rating: 2
Immortals born in the thirteenth century, Lucien Riordan and Ranulf Styr have waited centuries to be reunited with their love. Want for her cemented their friendship through time, even as it tore it apart. She changed their lives, made them want better, and they plan to show her that. There's only one catch--she's never met them before.
Eris Brue is flattered by Lucien and Ranulf's attention, but they are her bosses. She doesn't want to get tangled up in an office romance, especially not with two men. Their joint seduction overcomes her resolve, and she gives in even though she knows they are keeping secrets that could doom their relationship.
Centuries of planning have finally come to fruition. Lucien and Ranulf have a short amount of time to make Eris love them, because once time has her, everything could come to an end.
Note: Contains no adult language. Also contains physical violence against the heroine.
Time travel, immortality, romance, polyamorous relationships, and mysterious eternals, are what make up this incredible story. Eris Brue is a computer genius who loves comic books, LARP (live-action role playing) and renaissance faires. Lucien Riordan and Ranulf Styr have amassed quite the collection of comic books and happen to be the owners of an annual renaissance faire. They are also immortals from the thirteenth century searching for the one woman they both fell in love with all those centuries ago.
Before Eris is able to fully explore their blossoming relationship, she is thrust into a different time… a medieval one. Emotions run high in both the past and the present as Eris learns of what the men have been hiding from her. Meanwhile the men are left with the guilt of past mistakes and struggle to believe that she will forgive them.
The author beautifully puts together what could have been two completely separate stories set in two different time periods. The descriptions of both character and setting were believable as well as the emotions. I cried, laughed, had moments of incredible frustration, but in the end fell in love. The story does get a little confusing as we try to understand the complexity of the role of an eternal. I am still not quite sure that I understand, but the concept sounds promising. In the end, Eris reveals her own secret and I couldn’t be happier for all of them. I also can’t help but hope to see more of these characters in the next story.
In the ‘About the Author’ note after the story, D. Renee Bagby mentions that her favorite pastime is, ‘torturing her characters on their way to happily-ever-after for the enjoyment of her readers.’ I absolutely couldn’t agree more. This is a must read for anyone who likes time travel romance because the next torture session installment in this series is definitely not one to be missed.
