Heat Rating: 2
Centuries ago, Ravenna Mal was One of the Few, one among many sworn to protect the world from the night’s creatures. Her upbringing was unforgiving; as a warrior, she could form no close relationships, and she could especially never fall in love.
A vampire called Nicolai challenged everything she knew, introducing her to worldly sins, worshipping her flesh with his hands and mouth, and worming into her heart before she realized how painful love could be…especially when ripped away.
In the present, Raven Rayne has a problem. A new vampire called Nicholas in town; one who speaks to her without saying a word, one who stirs long-dormant feelings she can’t dismiss as dreams.
A chance spell reunites Raven with the past she never knew, and memories of Nicholas she couldn’t have dreamed. And though he doesn’t remember her, she knows she must do everything she can to remind him.
Ashira Datya’s Review
Romeo and Juliet have nothing on Ripples Through Time's Nicholas and Raven. Their love began in the 1700’s, despite the differences in who they were; she is a Vampire Slayer and he is a Vampire. Their love was forbidden and despite the tragedy that befalls them, Raven is determined not to let it destroy them or their love and does the unthinkable to ensure that they stay together. Flash forward centuries later; Raven and Nicholas find each other again and have to fight a big bad evil demon to stay together.
I really, really, really loved Ripples Through Time. I was a HUGE Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan when it was on and this story reminded me so much of that hugely popular show. I went through so many different emotions reading this story, I laughed when Raven was sassy to her guardian (think Giles in BtVS) and when it looked like Raven's desire to stay with Nicholas forever wouldn't come true, I was anxious, hoping that their love would be enough to keep them together.
I give Ripples Through Time four Tea Cups and a heat score of two. Miss Stanton is a really talented author and I look forward to reading her next masterpiece.
4 Tea Cups!
