Blurb from Book:. Immortals Lucien and Ranulf have survived to see the modern era to be with the woman they both love once more. Equally anticipating and dreading the reunion, they’ve vowed to let her decide which of them she wants to be with. But are they prepared to let one woman end a friendship that has lasted centuries?
    Eris has just started her dream assignment. She’s not looking for an office romance, but her new bosses aren’t making it easy for her to avoid it. And right when she gives in to their joint seduction, she ends up tossed back in time to the medieval era where the men she loves have no clue who she is. What’s worse, they think she’s the enemy.
    The Lucien and Ranulf of the past are rough and dangerous. Eris is doing everything she can to survive them while searching for a way back to her time. But returning home means confronting an undeniable truth, one that could end their relationship forever. It’s up to her to decide if her heart is strong enough to handle the love of two men and the reality of their enchanted existence.
My thoughts: This was an entertaining time travel romance with some m/m/f action. Although there isn’t as many sex scenes as I expected (and no men on men), the scenes that are there are steamy. Yeah, the pacing was a little on the slow side (in the beginning), but I enjoyed getting to know the characters. This says Book 1, but it’s pretty much wrapped up (no cliff-hangers). There is no Book 2 and I don’t know if there will ever be, since this was released ten years ago.

So ... What are you reading now? Besides reading a paranormal romance, I'm also reading White Fragility with my chapter. I'm finding that very interesting (and eye-opening).

Happy Reading!

Mostly reading my own manuscript and editing now.

I'm reading The Babbling Brook Naked Poker Club Book 4 by Ann Warner - I love this cozy mystery series! And also reading a nonfiction book called Fair Play about sharing tasks more fairly in the home. It's making me realize I've got it pretty good!
