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...

My thoughts:

Two cross star lovers from the past who meet again in the present.  Will their romance turn out any different this time around, or are they destined to remain apart? A superb job was done merging both the past with the present in this page turner. The heroine, Laine, uncovers her past in her dreams, by reliving her suppressed memories. Just when you think our heroine’s life could not be any more horrid there is yet another chapter that divulges more of her past.

The hero, Christien, is the last one standing between life and the end of the world, in order to protect the “treasure” he was given eternal life. Evil follows him throughout the years, and he must make decisions that not only protect the “treasure” but Laine. 

“I had a mission and it was all I concentrated on. Finish my mission and I could die for there was no thought of living without you.”

The reader is given snippets of memories of both the hero and heroine of their past life, we saw a glimpse of how these two characters, in the midst of hatred and turbulent times, find each other-two soul mates standing the test of time. 

When she meets Christien in the present it felt like déjà vu. Throughout the book she tried to unravel what her dreams meant; she had a feeling they were meant to be together in this life, either to finish what they started or maybe it was something else.

Like I’ve come home. Like I’ve been searching for something all my life but didn’t even know it until he showed up.

            When she was with him, it felt right, like she’d been missing the  other half of herself her entire life and had finally found it.

You can feel the internal struggle Christien faces by refraining from telling her about the past too quickly, she needs to learn it on her own or he may scare her off.

“One look at you and I’d found the other half of my heart.”

         “As long as you never leave me again. You are my heart, ma Cherie. And without my heart, I would die.”

I love HEA, although the author left us wondering at the end, so I was never able to say  “and they lived happily ever after”. I can only hope that their ending was a happy one.

This is the first book I have read from Sharon Cullen, I like her writing style and I can definitely say I will look for more of her books. If you like a story with a mix of reincarnation, immortality as well as a beautifully written romantic tale, I recommend you not miss out on reading this book. 

I received this arc in exchange for an honest review.
