Cursed for 2000 years, Roman Nicolis has tracked his lovers’ soul through each reincarnation only to lose her horribly every time. Reclaiming their love is their only salvation. He’s been her friend, her father, her neighbor, but never again her lover . . . until now.
A late night walk home throws Stella into the path of a killer. The last thing she remembers are the deep blue eyes of the man trying to kill her—and the first things she sees after a seven day coma are the same blue eyes in the handsome face of the man hired to protect her. Is it fears she feels when Roman touches her or the memory of something sweeter? She will have to push past her fears and reclaim a love that has lasted two millennia.
I really enjoyed this story. There was a lot of action and the Egyptian mythology combine with it made for one awesome read.
Yes, what man would wait for ONE woman for 2000 years? well apparently Roman Nicholis. He waits and waits while the soul of his dead lover is reincarnated..sometimes he comes across her and sometimes he doesn't. His torture however is that she doesn't remember him...that is until Stella.
Stella is the latest body that Roman's lover is born in. Stella has lived a hard life and after surviving a brutal attack, she wakes up to find a strange man sitting in her hospital room. She feels she knows him, she just doesn't know how or from where.
I thought Eternity had a very strong story line. The character and world building was strong too. There was a little confusing as to the difference between Roman and his twin brother Reign, but it didn't take away for the story. I believe Tmonique Stephens has very good series here as she as has all of the elements of a well written urban paranormal story. There's a romance of course, you have your tortured hero and in this story, the heroine is just as tortured as he is. You also have your urban elements along with a enemy out to destroy everything in his path.
I personally think you will enjoy this ride...highly recommended read here at Salacious Reads.
