~ 4 Yours For Eternity Stars ~
I read this book a long time ago. It got me interested in reading Hannah Howell and Alexandria Ivy’s books, unfortunately I did not enjoy Kaitlin O’Riley’s story. At the time I read this I was not reviewing, now I am and have re-read Yours For Eternity. I loved Highland Blood & Taken by Darkness. I could not bring myself to re-read Immortal Dreams. Each story takes place in the past and they don’t play a part in the series, so easily they can standalone. If you have not tried out the Guardians of Eternity by Alexandra Ivy or the MacNachton Vampire by Hannah Howell, then this will give you a great taste of the series and writing by these two authors.
5/5 Stars – Highland Blood by Hannah Howell
This is part of Hannah Howell’s MacNachton Vampire series, but can be read as a standalone. I loved re-visiting these characters. It has wet my appetite to go back and re-read this series. Even though this series and story are in the past I still enjoyed it. I’m not big on historical reads, but something about Hannah Howell’s writing makes it pleasurable. I like the spin she does on her Vampires. It’s intriguing and different. Both characters work well together and you feel the love and understanding.
5/5 Stars – Taken by Darkness by Alexandra Ivy
This is part of Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity series. It does not play a part in the series and can standalone. We get to meet Victor our Clan Chef in London and Juliet his mate. Juliet and Victor make an appearance in one of the earlier books and I was curious on how they hooked up. We get action, attraction and humor. Levet of course is in this and we get all the usual humor he brings with him. I loved revisiting the Guardians of Eternity world and this line was my favorite: “My home is here…in your heart. And nothing absolutely nothing, could please me more.”
2/5 Stars – Immortal Dreams by Kaitlin O’Riley
I tried, but could not bring myself to re-read or finish this one again. Did not like it the first time around. I don’t like women who can’t make there own decisions and who are fainting lily’s. Immortal Dreams was not for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.
