When Grace, 27 years old and with only a few months left to live, returns to her home town of Brecon, she is catapulted nearly 1800 years into the past. At first she attributes her hallucinations to her brain tumour but as the visions become more detailed and closer to the present day, she becomes involved with a certain wickedly handsome and rather inhuman Roman, who has an obsession with blood.
Grace is forced to confront her fears when the past begins intruding on the present, and she falls deeper in love with her phantom man.
'Death is only one option.'
A love story with a supernatural twist, it looks at vampires from an unusual angle, knitting together the twelfth century with the present day.
This is the first novel in the Resurrection trilogy..
This paranormal romance is an emotionally gripping and intriguing adventure through time. With only a few months left to live, 27 year old Grace returns to her home town of Brecon and suddenly finds herself catapulted nearly 1800 years in the past where she becomes involved with the wickedly handsome vampire, Roman.
This steady paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on shivering in suspense throughout the story as Grace tries to determine whether what she experiences in the past is indeed real or just a hallucination. The author describes the scenes with well written details that capture the imagination and has the reader feeling as if they are indeed returning to the past with Grace. The characters are strong, compelling and easily related to.
The attraction Grace feels for Roman is complicated because she’s not sure he’s real but as the story progresses so does her feelings for him and now she’s determined to love him even if it is only in her mind and the passion and sex is hot and steamy whether it is imagined or not. The reader can’t help but get caught up in the story as Grace’s situation emotionally grips the heart and the drama and suspense draw them deeper into the story and well Roman certainly arouses curiosity… among other things.
The author has created a fascination time travel romance with some novel vampire elements that adds some spice to the story. The author blends the 12th century in with the present making the transition easy for the reader to follow and while the story is not fast paced it keeps the readers enthralled and determined to find out what happens. Grace also finds herself in some complicated situations due to the time period that provides some humor and excitement. Being the first in a trilogy, this story ends on a cliff hanger and I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
