Every Last Kiss
Time Travel Romance
Book 1 of Bloodstone Saga
"I finally drifted back to sleep as I desperately tried to convince myself that I had dreamed the whole thing...because I didn't like the alternative."
Macy Lockhart is seventeen and dealing with her first cheating boyfriend. How could things get worse than seeing it in a text message? For Macy, it could get a lot worse when a mysterious man arrives and reveals to her her true nature - as a guardian of fate. As if that isn't strange enough, he transports her through time to a previous life where she is handmaiden to Queen Cleopatra - the week before their tragic suicide. Intent on changing history, Annen wreaks havoc with the timeline, forcing Charmian to fix it. But when fixing it involves allowing the man she loves to die again, will Macy have the strength to do it once again? Or will she be tempted to change fate?
My Opinion: This was a fascinatingly rich story combining history, love and a paranormal slant the world. Charmian was a fabulously rich character who felt deeply the many emotions she was forced to endure. I almost cried with her several times. Cleopatra was a well developed character as well, richly infusing life into a colorful historical character, as well as Marc Antony. Hasani was sweet, loving and kind - all in all a perfect male character that fit well into the situation and with Charmian. Although there is some left unexplained - that makes sense since this seems to be book one. By the end I simply fell in love with the story. I would highly recommend this one.
