BOOK SYNOPSIS

Lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. The Cynfell brothers are the very embodiment of a sinful existence. But could the right woman change that?
Sloth
Miss Lila Radley was set to be the belle of the ball this summer. With her charming manners, beautiful looks and excellent connections, everyone anticipated her receiving endless proposals.
However, no one expected her to be kidnapped.
After she witnesses a murder, Lila finds herself in the hands of two overwhelmingly attractive brothers—entirely against her will. However, while the twin Cynfell brothers might be as devastating in looks as each other, only one intrigues her—the brooding Lord Ash Cynfell.
Unfortunately, he is the very reason she is in danger.
Already battling with his own demons, Ash finds himself with an additional burden to bear—Miss Lila Radley’s safety. He cannot very well abandon her as it was due to his inaction that a man ended up dead and a serial killer is now targeting her. Unfortunately, keeping the vivacious Lila protected until the murderer is found is going to test him in every way possible.
Can he resist her charm and beauty, aware a worthless man like himself is no good for a woman like her? All he knows is that when Lila turns her sunny smile onto his twin brother, his finds himself unable to summon his usual relaxed attitude. Has Ash Cynfell, the most reclusive brother, finally found something worth fighting for?

“What were you thinking?” 
Ash narrowed his gaze at Harris. “There’s a serial killer out there. A powerful and dangerous one.” 
His brother paced in front of him while Ash sat on a chair too small for his build outside of the bedroom. 
The bedroom that held a currently enraged Lila. The crashes of furniture had stopped only a short while ago. It seemed no one had noticed that Lila had gone. Her family, according to Harris, had assumed she’d retreated to bed. They were, as his brother said, a little scatter-brained. 
He couldn’t deny he had come to that conclusion from his short acquaintance with them, but Harris spent more time in society so his opinion was likely correct.
So that at least gave him time to decide what to with Miss Lila Radley. 
Pin her to the bed and kiss away her fury? 
He smirked to himself. No. Tempting as that was, he suspected that would only increase her ire. Since she’d awoken from her faint, she’d been full of fire. He wouldn’t tell her that he had enjoyed picking up her soggy form and carrying her to his brother’s carriage far more than he should have done. He also certainly wouldn’t mention how she’d curled a hand around his neck and burrowed herself against him. 
He released a sigh. If it wasn’t enough he’d already near fallen for her on sight, she was now appealing to his need to protect. There was nothing quite like being needed by the opposite sex. And when she’d tucked her face into his neck, he’d been lost.

My review


I love me some Cynfell brothers! Definitely historical romance at it’s best.


Ash Cynfell suffers from intense migraines that keeps him bed-ridden more than he likes. His identical twin brother, Harris, think it is from drinking too much.


Harris comes to Ash’s house, reminding him that he had challenged Fred Westerling to a duel. Westerling is a unsavory man who has been known to take unwanted liberties with women. Ash catches him in such a manner with a lady and challenges him to the duel.


Ash and Harris are met by a stumbling Westerling and realize he has been shot, trying to get information on who had shot him, becomes difficult as the man falls to the ground and dies on the spot. It’s when Ash hears the scream of a woman and rushes over to see a knife-wielding man attacking her. He fights the man off and turns his attention to the woman, he now knows he must protect at whatever cost.


Lila is a green eyed beauty who knows well of the Cynfell brothers reputation and is not about to fall for the handsome man. But when Ash informs her that the murder she had just witnessed had been done by a serial killer, she has no choice but to put her trust in Ash Cynfell. What will become of these two? You will have to read to find out.

This Excerpt is part of Chapter 1 © Tanya Vought

Chapter 1 The dark, somber sky matches Gracelynn Calhoun’s disposition. Her heart beats rapidly in her chest as she grips the steering wheel of her Hyundai Accent. From her windshield, she notices the barren trees that once held her favorite fall foliage. Looking at them makes her feel just as empty as the trees in the Layton Hills Cemetery. She releases her right hand from the steering wheel, and clutches her angel necklace as tears pour down her cheeks. She closes her eyes, continuing to hold the necklace, remembering the day her beloved gave it to her. She lets go of her necklace, opens her green-grey eyes and wipes her cheeks. While walking to her beloved’s tomb, leaves crinkle under her favorite pair of black, high-heeled shoes. As she reaches the stone, tears trickle down her face and she drops to her knees. She immediately starts cleaning around his grave, removing all debris. She stares at the gravestone, and drags her fingers over the intricately carved angel wings. She reads aloud, even though she doesn't need to. "Angelo Grant Calhoun. 11/28/1980 - 11/30/2012. "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine." More tears stream down her face. She reaches up and touches the top of the stone, resting her hand in the middle of the stone, like she’d be touching Angelo's heart. “I miss you so much, Angelo. How can I move on with my life…move on without you?” she cries to the gravestone. "I love you so much. I wore your favorite dress and shoes, hoping that you’d see me today. How crazy is that?" She laughs through tears, wipes her cheeks with her hand and grabs her necklace. “I still remember the day you gave me this,” she expresses to the gravestone. “How can I move on when you were my whole life?......” Excerpt “Wow. You’re a vision, you know that?” He practically drools all over. She wears a pair of blue jeans and a low cut green sweater with a white scarf wrapped around her neck. Her hair is up, and she wears light make up. She chuckles. “Like what you see?” She smirks at him, daunting him. The little vixen can come out and play when she wants and he is enjoying this side of the sexy Gracelynn. He decides to play dirty himself. “Want to see how happy I am to see you?” He smirks back at her. “Let’s make a wager, shall we?” he asks competitively. She grins at him. She intently twirls a strand of her hair that she left down by her face between her fingers, licks her lips and stares at him. She looks him up and down, making him even more drawn to her. He gulps. The damn vixen knows how to play dirty. “Well, what is the wager? Because if it is staring at each other all night, I could do that and then some.”

My review

Gracelynn happiness is swallowed up after the loss of her husband and it seems nothing can mend   her broken heart.

Giovanni, a handsome entrepreneur and has had his own shares of misfortunes. But there is something about Gracelynn that makes him protective, makes him want him to take away the sadness that lurks behind her eyes.  

There is an obvious attraction between them is apparent, but can they both put aside their past to created a loving relationship?

This was a well written novel and the characters were very funny, strong and extremely likable.

This time, he dove in with her still on his shoulder—instead of dumping her—and she was ready for it. When they surfaced, she was laughing and he was, too. He swooped her into an embrace, leaning his face inches from hers. She tried to pull away and he said, “Don't. Not yet.” “Why?” “Because your ex is watching. I'm going to kiss you. Make him jealous.” “What if I don't want to kiss you?” “Do you want to make him jealous?” he asked, his lips a hair from hers. “Yes,” she breathed. “Then let me kiss you,” he whispered. “Wrap your arms around my neck and your legs around my waist.” “Why?” “Just do it.” He shifted his hands to her butt and pulled her pelvis to his. Heat flooded her body as the hard ridge of him rubbed her aching clit with each passing wave. “Better?” Lust coated his voice. “Uh huh,” she muttered as he pressed his lips to hers, warm, despite the cold water, and surprisingly soft. When she swiped her tongue over his lips, tasting the ocean salt, he opened them. His tongue danced with hers as if meant to do so. No war, no fighting, just a sensual give and take. When he pulled away, he'd left her breathless. “Why'd you stop?” I could kiss you for hours. He panted. “Did you want to keep going?” “Yes.” God, yes. I might fly apart, but I don't care. “Okay.” He kissed her again, his luscious mouth turning her inside out. This time, he let her slide down his body, and a wave nearly toppled them. “Did that work for you?” To her delight, his brawny arms still held her. “Which part? Making Liam jealous or getting excited while kissing you? Owen smiled. “I liked kissing you, too.”

My review

Owen Nichols comes home  for a one week vacation, from fighting in the war. He’s excited to spend time with his best friend Neil and girlfriend Meghan. When  Owen is introduced to Meghan's cousin Nina Jacobs he is instantly attracted to her.

When Nina meets Owen it is and instant attraction but has her guard up, afraid to let things go farther than friends for two reason. One she has been hurt in the past and two, he is only in town for a week.But soon the friendship blossoms into something more, that Nina can’t fight. Will they both be able to find their happily ever after with each other?

This is the first book I have read in this series and felt the author did a fantastic job of building an emotional world that was engaging and realistic.

WARNING:
ELECTRIFYING ORGASMS!!!
NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART
Miami Rattlers Cheerleader Cherie Redd is exquisitely beautiful, athletic, and very, very lonely. Romance: a puzzling phenomenon she figured had something to do with guys' fear of rejection or lack of self-confidence because they just didn't have what it takes to win someone like Cherie. 
Titillatingly sexy and breathtakingly beautiful, Cherie and her other cheerleading friends often spent their lonely Saturday nights lamenting their beauty and available just for the asking. The prettiest single women around: lonely, loveless and forlorn.
Frustrated by too many quiet nights at home or with other cheerleaders, Cherie was oh-so-eager for romance and a man to seduce her lavishly. She wanted to feel what a real orgasm in the arms of an adoring man was like once again. So, she tucked her vibrator away and took to the Internet. Cherie had no clue how rapidly the seduction would begin or where her life would careen as a result. Painfully naive and overwhelmed by admirers before her spinning head cleared, Cherie was learning things her momma never even knew enough to warn her about. 
Follow Cherie and her friends as their sexual scoreboards light up brighter than in any stadium as their downward spiral introduces them to hot ménage sex, perversion and degradation.
Or does it?
Even his muscles have muscles for The Girls


An Insatiable Appetite for the Explicit *HOT* Edge 
Once in awhile, a book comes along that really captures your imagination. 
This book does that.
It begins as a charming “anything goes” chronicle of Cherie, and her cheerleader friend’s, 
journey beginning with Internet dating on the wild-side of South Miami nightlife. 
Timely situational circumstances hold a mirror on the breath of today’s edgy living, sensation-seeking society reflecting a degradational descent into drugs, alcohol, BDSM, casual sex, and sexual perversions.
This book was hard to put down. The pace was a roller-coaster ride of surprising 
twists and turns—some funny, some not, all thought provoking—all totally absorbing.
However, the underlying story is one of love: 
wanting it, losing it, looking for it, finding it,  and underestimating the power of love.
Outstanding, entertaining read! Wilson and Laurence nailed this one! 
You will not see the end coming…..
~ PA Jiuditta

As the evening darkened into night, the lights of Miracle Mile slowly came on, one-by-one, to welcome the late comers to the Strip. They were clearly interested in one another, their eyes locked in a magnetic embrace. Her emerald eyes lost their golden flecked luster to a dark, nighttime desire, matching Juan’s. Their hands touched often, fingertips communicating the messages lovers speak that only they can hear. Cherie, thinking the better of the two with the most to lose, excused herself to the ladies room.
The Girls take on the Hot-Hungry Media
There was a fiery feeling building up a steam that needed expression and release. In the restroom stall, Cherie raised her dress and put her hand up her thigh. She moved her red thong out to the side as she searched for her honey spot, now wet and eager. She knew this would not take long; so much emotion had burned through her already tonight.  Her head relaxed to the wall and she began to finger herself rapidly as she thought about Juan holding his cigar and the size of his hands. God, but he was handsome, tall and virile. She wondered about his cock. Was he circumcised or did he have a turtleneck sweater? She smiled and released a slight giggle. Was he long, thin, short, thick, wide and flat, bushy or trimmed?  How did he smell: like a warm musky forest after a light rain or like boot leather? Did he like briefs or boxers?  Oh, God, maybe a thong… Oh God, oh God, maybe he was wearing a thong now, or nothing! She could feel the earlier tension redirecting energy to her clit as she became more and more aroused at the thought of Juan’s cock.  She was adept at fingering herself and she wasted no energy now.  She began to moan and move with the rhythm of her hand and fingers.  She released her neck muscles and her head rolled from shoulder to shoulder.  She could feel it all over now, everywhere.  She was electrified, getting wetter with each stroke. Damn, she wished she had her finger vibrator, but she only carried it when she travelled. She would have to rethink that strategy another time.
She is reading for pointers from The Girls
She moaned, gyrated, clinched and quivered.  She moved in harmony with her passion, with the ebb and flow of her pulse. Her eyes closed floating in the image of Juan, and then she raised her foot to the seat in the stall.  She spread her legs giving her hand full open access: oh, what a vision she must have been.  She was hot, looked sublime, and coming soon in her red silk undies.  Her thong and garter belt pushed aside, she tormented her clit and pussy.  Aware that people looked at her as if they wanted her made her feel better and gave her an emotional edge. She pretended Juan was looking at her now in the same way.
She began to come in her hand: two fire-red tipped fingers plunged inside of her pussy and her red-tipped thumb found the pink pearl of her existence.  She worked herself into frenzied hot passion as she imagined Juan kissing her, holding her breasts, pinching her nipples, bending to suck her aureole and bite her nipples.  Her hardened nipples stretched and made an appearance under her tight fully
He just collided with an 80 year-old Grandmother at a bus stop
fitted dress.  God!  Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, God and she released a moan with her breath as she gripped her thighs tightly together, pushed, quivered, contracted and came.  She stood like that for a few seconds then relaxed as she rotated her head and released her neck muscles.  She felt like a new woman: a woman that knew she should be headed home before her quality time with the man at hand, Juan, turned into quality debauchery. 
Cherie emerged from the ladies’ room looking like a redheaded goddess, to Juan’s eye. It was a wonder to him what women could do to themselves in a few short minutes to freshen up.  Begging the late hour and an early call tomorrow, Cherie left after the next glass of wine and a penetrating kiss promised more to come.

My review

Cheri Redd is a beautiful cheerleader, who wants a man. Her beauty seems to push men away, so she uses the internet, searching for a new playmate. Juan, a gorgeous latino man answers her call and they meet up and the journey into the sexual life of Cheri begins. I have read a lot of erotica books and some tend to go overboard and some fall short. This one was right on spot. It was written to pull you into a world of sexual fantasy, to let you feel and enjoy the journey. Not to mention, it was completely hot, realistic and the characters were well written. Amazing story, but one no review will do justice.

This is definitely one of those books that you have to read, to thoroughly enjoy it.

“Well, that explains it, then,” Mr. Harrington said.

“Explains what, Mr. Harrington?” Jason was puzzled and didn’t even try to hide it.

“Why you’re so interested in Emily. She and that money of hers could go a long way toward helping you catch up financially, as you put it.”

Jason felt the blood drain from his head. Emily exchanged a frantic look with her sister. “I-I’m sorry, sir,” he stammered. “What did you say?”

“I said that Emily and that money of hers could go a long way.”

Jason just stared at the old man for a minute. “What money, Mr. Harrington?”

“Oh, don’t be ridiculous, young man. The trust fund. The Harrington trust fund. She’s bound to have told you about it.”

He lifted his chin and looked the old man in the eye. “I didn’t know Emily had a trust fund. She’s never mentioned it to me.” He looked at Emily across the table. “You’ve never said a word, Emily. Have you?”

My review

An explosion that had occurred while Jason was deployed in Iraq, left him with not only scars on over half of his body, but took away any self-esteem he had. When he meets Emily, he tries to find something he can give her, some financial stability that would make up for how he felt when he looked in the mirror, ugly. When he finds out that Emily has everything he wants to give her and more, will this make him walk away from her? Or will he look past it and realize all he needs is her.

EXCERPT

She was about to lose her virginity and she was glad. She wanted to lose it with the wicked duc, not some dull apothecary’s assistant. Let the future be damned.
He bent to kiss her neck, now balanced on both elbows above her, and thrust in fully.
She gave a little shriek as a stab of pain shot through her. He went still. 
“You’re a virgin.” It sounded like an accusation. He dropped his head, his face curtained by his hair. “I…I didn’t know. I thought… I would never have just…” 
“It’s better now.” How embarrassing that she’d shrieked. Now he felt warm inside her. Satisfying. This was where she belonged, joined to Henri Foucault. “This is nice.” He looked so contrite. But more than that, he looked a little…frightened. Not like the wicked duc at all. She couldn’t have that. “That kissing before… down there… was nice.” 
“Have you, uh, never had an orgasm?” 
She shook her head. “I would have known, I’m sure.” 
He took a breath and squeezed his eyes at that. Then he opened them as though he had decided something. “You can get the same feeling again, only by a different means, if you’ll bear with me.” The small smile was back, but it was rueful now. “It won’t hurt like that again.” 
“I’d like that.”

My review
Only Susan Squires could take a historical romance, insert vampires and time travel and make it work. Frankie travels through life, feeling abandoned and hardened by the one person who had turned her, Henry Foucault. If she could go back in time, she would kill him before he tainted her blood, before he gave her this desolate life of existence. Another vampire gives her the opportunity when she introduces a time machine to her and Frankie is set on going back in time and saving her lonely existence, by killing the one who had made her. But everything goes awry when she comes face to face with her younger self. Great read. I would recommend this to everyone.

Highland Storm - Author Photo
Victoria Zak is an internationally bestselling author in Scottish Historical Paranormal Romance. Her first book, Highland Burn, won an Honorable Mention at the 2015 RONE awards for best paranormal romance.
Growing up in the sister city to Stirling, Scotland, Scottish flare was abundant throughout Dunedin, FL. From her High School band to the annual Highland Games that took place right across the street from her childhood home, the bagpipes beckoned her toward her calling. It seemed only natural for Victoria Zak to want to write in the Scottish historical romance genre. Add to the fact, she was also a paranormal romance junkie, there was no doubt that her influences would be the driving force behind her stories.

My review

Red Hawk, is a Dragonkin and the chieftain of Helmfirth and is protective of not only his sisters but of his people in his clan. When Helmfirth goes under attack, he finds that he can’t bring out his dragon and is caught into a battle, he may not survive. He wakes in Dunfermline Abbey, a blessed place filled with monks and nuns. This is where he first lays his eyes on a Kate, a sister residing there. Kate was left literally at Dunfermline doorstep as an infant and as always called it home. But she is restless and wishes to leave and travel out into the Highland. She asks Hawk to help her leave the Abbey and at first he is resistant but later agrees. There is a spark between the two that Kate knows is real, but Hawk is not so eager to admit it. Between taking care of his clan and his sisters, that last thing he wants is to take on caring for Kate. Very well written story and a lot of action. The words flowed very easily across the page and the characters were written so masterfully for the era.

Onyx Unleashed - Book CoverWhen good and evil collide, who will be left standing?

Eden Cross is lonely. If she didn’t have her beloved cat, Onyx, she’d have no one at all. Eden longs for companionship, but, being a prisoner, all she gets is foul-mouthed demons and hatred from the one man she wants respect from the most.

Collier Brigham is son of the King of Demons. Bitter with hatred, like his father, he’s expected to be a force to be reckoned with. He never believed love would rear its ugly head in his favor. Especially not when the woman is the daughter of the man who is to blame for the deaths of his mother and brother.

She is a beautiful force of nature and he is misery personified. When secrets are revealed, can they see past the unthinkable and work together to right their wrongs?

EXCERPT

R rated ** Collier exits the shower, grabs a towel off the small rack and smiles, assuming it’s Eden’s as well. Just as he’s about to dry himself off, he hears a noise behind him. He turns around to find Eden licking her lips at his body. She’s eye fucking him and it drives him insane. “Eden, like what you see?” He grabs his girth in front of her, enjoying her eyes as he tantalizes her. But this is not the time for this. He’s vowed to make himself a new man—to be the one she wants—the one to make her laugh and be carefree, like she is with Drew. One thought of Drew and he turns his back on her and dries off. “Please give me a minute to myself. Leave the bathroom, now.” He hates having seen the confusion all over Eden’s face.

Anger is definitely there too. “You know what, Collier? I’m tired of the bullshit and all you stupid, mercurial men. I’m so freaking tired of it. I stuck up for your sorry ass, but forget it. I’m done.” She slams the door, leaving him alone and confused. Why did she have to stick up for him? What the hell just happened here? He dries off the rest of his body with the purple towel, even though he has mostly air-dried. He runs his fingers through his hair, trying to restrain the crazy head of hair of his. He huffs and growls. He feels his skin start to crack… he’s angry. He was rude to Eden after thinking of Drew. He knows he needs to talk with her. He wraps his towel around his waist, since he left his clothes in the other room. He hopes Eden is waiting for him. Slowly opening the door, Collier finds Eden reading on the bed. He knows she’s seen him but also knows he deserves her stubborn silent treatment. He notices that she’s brought food back, but, well, it’s not quite what he expected. On a white plate with red grapes and banana slices she’s formed the words: Eat Shit Asshole. He laughs and grumbles. He takes a bite of his food and in the corner of his eye he notices Eden watching him. “If you’d like a piece of this, you’re more than welcome to some, sweetheart.” He enjoys watching her squirm on the bed, without making a peep. He also enjoys watching her huff before turning back to her book, which he knows she’s definitely not reading.

Prologue As the sun shines through the curtains, it illuminates and lands perfectly on Eden's face—the breathtaking beauty lying on the bed next to me. I fear one day she will realize who I am. I want to only be known as her beloved Onyx. She looks at me with such warmth and love. She cares for me and I've come to care for her greatly.

Licking my fur, patting it down, I wish I could be someone else. Why couldn't I have fallen in love with someone else? With her I can love. Why does she have to be so damn beautiful? Why on all that is holy does she have to be the one who takes my breath away and make my dark heart beat again?

All of these thoughts make a growl erupt from my mouth, loud enough to wake the beauty next to me. I meow, trying to soften the loud noise I just created. She smiles as she reaches for me and looks into my eyes, and it’s like she's actually looking into my soul for the first time in all these years.

My review

Paranormal is definitely not my genre of choice. I have read so many awful books in this genre, I tend to stray away from it completely. But not this one, I really enjoyed it.

The author did a great job of building the world and keeping the reader, me, engaged. The story itself was fun, fast-paced and full of twists, that keep you on the edge of your seat. I loved how the author took two people, different and put them together. each other and put them together.

In the very beginning, Eden wanted nothing to do with Collier, but felt differently, he definitely wanted Eden, but seemed bumbly or defensive around her never really getting a chance to show how he truly felt and was a lot of fun watching as this relationship grew. Fantastic story.

BOOK SYNOPSIS

New York Times bestselling author Susan Squires invites you into the world of two lovers who share a seductive past and a dangerous desire…

DIVIDED BY CENTURIES

Contessa Donnatella di Poliziano has power, beauty, and—as a vampire—eternal life. Her overwhelming regret is a mistake she made centuries ago when she chose not to transform her one true love, Jergan, into a vampire too. Donnatella’s choice has deprived her of the only true love she’s ever known. But just as all seems lost, the discovery of a 300-year-old note leads her to a gift left by her old friend, Leonardo da Vinci: a machine to take her back in time to rewrite the history of her heart…

UNITED BY OTHERWORLDLY DESIRE

Once back in time, Donnatella’s memory of the intervening years is lost. Yet when she sees the breathtaking barbarian slave, Jergan, from afar, she feels like she has always known him. The instant attraction she feels draws them together. For Donnatella, the romance is tantalizing, awakening a passion that feels both old and new. But as the two fall in love again, a new danger threatens to tear them apart. Now Jergan’s love for Donnatella will be tested in a most perilous way—and if he fails, the two lovers will be separated again…for eternity.

One with the Darkness - 3DEXCERPT

“Let me get your property, my lady,” the trader said. They turned to the back of the stall. Three men clustered round the straining barbarian, laughing as he tried to twist away. Blood dripped from his wrists where he had pulled against his shackles. He spat at them. It was his only means of defiance.

Graccus wiped his face and laughed. “Oh, he’ll be a joy to break.”

“I agree,” she said. The three yanked their gazes up, as did the barbarian. He flushed in shame. “Now unhand my new slave, sirs, so I may begin.”

“What? But I am buying him for my brothel!”

She waved the receipt scroll. “Too late.” Her She turned to the trader. “For the price I just paid, you can throw in a pair of shackles.” The trader nodded and clapped his hands. Slaves appeared with the required bindings. They unlocked the barbarian’s wrists from the poles and chained them behind his back before they released his feet. His ankles, too, were bloodied. Those green eyes stared at her, burning with intensity, as though he was still not sure what had just happened to him. Excitement churned inside her. This was the start of something—she didn’t know quite what. “Come quietly, slave,” she ordered, putting all the force of her personality behind her words, just shy of raising her Companion for compulsion. “You two—see that he does.” Two of Titus’s bodyguards nodded. Each took one of the slave’s arms and dragged him forward.

“You knew I wanted him,” Graccus was saying. The trader only shrugged. He couldn’t have gotten two thousand dinars for a slave bound for a brothel.

They pushed into the market throng. “There you are,” Titus called, hurrying over. Livia saw him frown as he registered the barbarian. “Livia Quintus, what is this? You’ve never purchased this creature!”

“I have, Titus. He was a soldier, therefore skilled in martial arts. He even speaks Latin. He’ll be a perfect bodyguard.” “Livia, return him at once. This is no slave for a woman.”

Livia turned to her new purchase, seeing him through Titus’s eyes. Bloody and sweating, he looked fierce, with those intense green eyes and all that hair. But he was the one she wanted. She knew that as certainly as she knew her own name. “Once we clean him up you won’t recognize him.”

“He needs more than a bath to make him suitable.”

“You were the one who suggested a bodyguard slave, and now that I’ve meekly done as you ask, you rail at me.”

Titus rolled his eyes. “Meek? I would welcome meek.” Livia gestured her entourage forward. Titus sighed and fell in step. “I just hope you haven’t bitten off more than you can chew.”

But there is one regret she has the loss of her one true love, Jergan. While readying herself for a ball, she finds a hidden letter  that was written 300 years earlier by her friend, Michelangelo. The letter directs her to a place where she finds a book and a large machine. She opens the book and realizes it is written by her friend Leonardo da Vinci.

And this time will she turn him, so he can also claim immortality, giving her eternity with her one true love.

What an exquisite book. This was a read that I read until the last page, without even batting an eye, it was how engaging it was and the writing puts you into the era of the story. Loved it.
