Blog Tour and Review- Forever Mine by Monica Burns

Forever Mine
By Monica Burns
 
Blurb:
 

Her future lies in the past 

When a bomb explosion thrusts Victoria Ashton backward in time to 1897, she’s forced to
impersonate the Countess of Guildford. Despite Victoria’s attempts to convince the earl she’s not his wife, her counterpart’s infidelity, lies, and ill-tempered personality makes the task almost impossible. Worse, Victoria finds herself falling in love with a man who loathes her. Only when the earl learns to trust her does she realize her future lies in the past. But love always comes at a price, and she must make a painful sacrifice in order for them to be together.

Her love is what will save him 

Nicholas Thornhill, Earl of Guildford has been searching for his missing wife for three weeks. Rumors of him being guilty of murder make him unwilling to believe his wife’s latest in a multitude of lies. But the changes in Victoria continuously surprise him. Despite his best intentions, he finds the contempt he once felt for his wife turning into something deeper and stronger. But when danger threatens to separate them forever, he must forge a bond with her that crosses the boundaries of time.

A passion to last forever

My Review

Forever Mine was the first book that I have had a chance to read. This author has been on my watch out for list for quite some time and I have been wanting to read her, and what a story this one turned out to be…it had be from the beginning. Forever Mine is a time travel romance, but is full of deep emotion and riveting scenes that are so compelling at the heart, and definitely one of the best time travel romances I have ever read. There were many times that I needed some tissues, it really put me through the ringer at certain moments, so just warning ya…it may just bring out a emotional response…so forewarned is to be armed right?

This story is very complex but even though it has quite a bit happening, I was not lost in any way. Monica Burns does a great job in making 6the story flow smoothly and everything just felt right. What we have is Nicholas Thornhill who is a art collector, and has been obsessed with a couple that was married in England in the 1800’s…and he can’t help but be drawn to Victoria Thornhill. He can’t explain his feelings for this woman that haunts him, and then her exact replica walks through the door and he kisses her not even knowing or understanding these strong feelings. But then she is injured and put in a coma. Victoria while coming in to a art gallery to buy a piece of art, finds herself thrust back in time, with a husband who is a Earl, and doesn’t trust her. His previous wife, the exact look alike of her, was cruel to him, and thinks they are the same woman. Victoria has no idea how to even return to her time, and as she starts to acclimate to this new time period, she starts to fall in love with Nicholas, and admire this man who has such a big heart and makes her crave things she shouldn’t, since she knows her time is limited with him. She knows that their time is precious, and would love him forever…no matter what fate decides for her.

I have to say that I just loved this story and it was definitely quite a intense love story. It will have you at the edge of your seat, flipping through those pages as fast as you can get them read. I found myself totally enthralled by this story. I do like time travel romance, but this author has totally blown me away on this one. I can’t even fully explain my thoughts on this one, because its that type of story you just fell for so hard, its difficult to get your thoughts in order and in the mind frame to put them in words. All I can say is WOW!! I am so impressed with this story and this author. And the characters just were so vividly pictured that you could be best friends with them. Overall a sensual and a heart wrenching romance that will steal your breath and capture your heart!! TOP FAVORITE!!

Excerpt
Despite the way he unnerved her, it was impossible to avoid noting how wonderful he smelled. It was a spicy, potently male scent. Deep inside her, a voice cried out for her to press her fingers against his beautiful mouth. The thought made Victoria suck in a quick, sharp breath of air. Nicholas’ eyes darkened with an emotion she didn’t even want to consider defining.

Slowly, he lowered his head until his mouth lightly touched hers. Fire streaked across her skin, its warmth sinking into her pores until it heated her blood like molten lava. She sighed then parted her mouth to lace his lips with the tip of her tongue. A dark sound rumbled in his chest as his tongue swept its way into her mouth and imitated an act her body suddenly craved as if she were starving.

Pleasure swept its way through her. The fiery sensation of it settled into every inch of her body. He said she’d bewitched him, but she was the one under his spell. His lips teased and seduced hers until her body screamed for more.

She wanted him to touch her. Needed him. She arched her hips upward in a silent plea for his touch, and a dark growl vibrated on her lips as he tugged the covers off her. His tongue swirled around hers, teasing and taunting her with each tantalizing stoke. The hot taste of him made her nipples grow hard until they ached with a pleasurable, tantalizing sensitivity. Eager to assuage the need for his touch, she caught his hand and pressed it to her breasts. A growl rumbled out of him as he rubbed his thumb over the rigid peak. The sensation of soft linen between her skin and his hand made her moan softly as his mouth worked its way across her cheek to her neck where he gently nipped at her skin.

Need spun through her, and as he lifted his head to stare down at her, she saw desire darkening his green eyes. A knot of anticipation tightened in her lower body as his hand left her breast and slid downward to her stomach where the heel of his hand pressed into the sensitive spot at the apex of her thighs. The simple pressure made her suck in a sharp breath, and a small smile curved his lips. 

“I want to watch you as I make you shatter from my touch, Victoria.” His words whispered across her senses as his hand pulled the hem of her nightgown upward to expose her completely.

Synopsis
As a paranormal inestigator, Kira Bedwell know that her gift as a far-seer had its advantages. But while touring the ruins of a Scottish castle, she never expected to gaze upon the noble figure of medieval clan chieftain Aidan MacDonald….

And she certainly never thought the irresistible Scot would appear in her dreams from then on.

Years later, while investigating time portals in Scotland, Kira again sees Aidan in person. When she unknowingly steps through a magical gateway, she finds herself face-to-face with the handsome Highlander – back in the fourteenth century!

Aidan is surprised – and delighted – to finally hold the woman he has envisioned for so long. But even as their romance transcends dreams to become reality, they find themselves under attack by Aidan’s enemies. And it will take all of their courage and resolve for their love to survive beyond time itself….

My Review

Kira has had dreams of Aiden, a Scot from the 1300’s, and she has always had a certain fascination with everything Scotland. It is her greatest passion. Then one day she has the strongest urge to return to Scotland, and while searching through some ruins, she finds herself in Scotland only in Aiden’s time, and she is face to face with a man that she has been dreaming of. Aiden has been dreaming of Kira and won’t be satisfied until she is in his arms, and when it finally happens, a enemy of Aiden could be the end to both of them.

I really loved the way Aiden was with Kira, and I enjoyed the concept of them sharing dreams with each other before they actually meet. I liked how obvious it is that this author has done her research on Scottish history, especially about the culture. You see it in the little details of the story that definitely make it seem more vividly detailed and realistic. It was almost as if the reader steps right into 1300’s Scotland, and seeing everything in real time. Highlander In Her Dreams is a time travel based romance, and when you mix a modern day woman with a medieval Scottish Laird…well things certainly get sensual and yummy steam. A charming love story that is imaginative and endearing. It will win over any readers heart.  A DELIGHTFUL ROMANTIC ROMP!!

Favorite Quote

“O-o-oh!” She jumped off the stool “I don’t want to talk about our dream times and what you think you know about me.” Shaking out her skirts, she frowned. “You can’t compare something from a dream with the reality–” “Nay, you cannot,” he agreed, standing. “The real you fires my blood a thousand more than any dream vision.” He captured her chin and kissed her. Hard, rough and fast. My Grade
