Madelaine Alexander is on a mission. When her boss sends her to the hottest nightclub in town to meet with the owner, she won't be deterred, even if that means standing in line for fifty-eight minutes in torturous heels while she'd rather be home in her pj's with a bowl of popcorn.
A Knight of the Templar, Christien Chevalier was given immortality along with the responsibility of protecting the treasure of the Templars. He's been unwavering in his task for centuries until his one true love-who died seven hundred years ago-shows up in his club, demanding his attention.
Christien couldn't protect Madelaine when they first fell in love. She was married to a lord and he was simply a knight. Now, through some unknown miracle, she stands before him again and they have a second chance. But Christien fears that Madelaine is being used as a pawn in a dangerous game, a game of good versus evil that could affect all of mankind...
I am so glad I was able to get this book to review. I really enjoyed it and thought the way the author told the story was very interesting. The story of Christien's first love from seven hundred years ago was blended together with the discovery of his new love after living without for centuries. Both love stories are intense and my heart ached for what Christien and Madelaine had to go through in all the years they suffered. The book goes back and forth between both stories with flashbacks and dreams and it feels like you are alternating between two stories. One a historical romance and the other a mystery / paranormal romance. Reading this book was like being able to enjoy both genres.
