Blurb : He is ready to die. She’s the reincarnation of his old flame… and the only one who can kill him. One hundred and fifty years ago, Matthew fell in love with the wrong girl. Granted Immortality and tasked with protecting a young woman in his Southern town, he was given one rule: Stay away from her. He failed—and as punishment was cursed with a life of solitude. His only escape is death at the hands of the soul that marked his so deeply, all those years ago… if he can find her. A soul marked and cursed in her own way, who remembers nothing of the love they lost. For pre-med student Hallie, loneliness isn’t a curse—it’s a survival skill. After years of struggle and abandonment, her world tilts on its axis again: a freak ice storm sends her van hurtling into a tree — and Hallie into the arms of a tall stranger whose embrace feels hauntingly familiar… With a vengeful Guardian on their tail, she can’t fall for him. But faced with Matthew’s captivating presence, a baffling historical mystery, and one whirlwind road trip, Hallie will have to come to terms with her past, Matthew’s secret, and the fact that some lives are like true love… eternal.
Review : What can I say about “escaping forever accept of”WOW”….!? Maybe I could say “I was soooo not expecting THIS!”.Diana St.Gabriel is a new author to me and I honestly have to say – her writing is incredible.At the beginning of the novel I was kind of sceptical because I had my fair share of paranormaly touched novels.
And when you read as much as I do you tend to get >picky<.
The story started out slowly and i was already wondering (for like two minutes -seriously-) if this is going to be a good read. But then the story picked up speed and I was realizing , that when I thought the author was keeping stuff from me (the reader) in fact she was creating a backgroundstory that was so deep and well developed -it took my breath away. Coming closer to the end I was already formulating my review in my mind starting with the words “this seriously needs to be turned into a series – I can see this going on so many ways – telling me so much that this one book can never be enough.
Imagine my relief when Iturned the last pages …. Yes, I will be seeing more of Matthew and his Angel. And honestly, I CAN HARDLY wait so please DEAR AUTHOR -do not tortue me to long as this has been the best paranormal romance by a new to me author in a long time.
Thank you so much for giving me the chance to review this beautiful romance! 5 ++ Stars and because I can not give more – let me paint them golden!
