OMG EXCELLENT!!!!!!

This was an excellent story. This is the first time I listened to an Audible book and I loved it. While listening to the story I could actually imagine the different time zones throughout the book. The story had amazing romance and the love making was off the charts. Everyone should buy this story. This was my second story with Angela Aaron and I will buy more of her books and recommend I it to everyone.

An Enduing Love That Spans Eleven Hundred Years

Any additional comments?

My Thoughts: This was a very emotional, sensual and powerfully moving story. I love it when the past touches the present. This had the feel of time travel (I LOVE time travel), but Aedan hadn’t traveled time he lived it—all 1100 years of it. What a patient man! He had loved his Aislinn of the 9th century with the love of a druid and passion that knew no bounds. He was told by the Lady Goddess that he would reconnect with her in the future and he did – the 21st century. This spritely, independent woman struggles to understand why she is so drawn to Aedan and why Aedan is pursuing her so adamantly.As readers we so often dream of those days long past and live them when the author’s words create believable events in a believable world. So much of this story conjures up the old magic which our present lives don’t touch. But isn’t it wonderful when an author can make you feel the old ways still exist and the Lady Goddess still has her place?Angela Aaron did just that for me! Her narrator, Hollie Jackson, was a great selection for this book. Aislinn is very American in her dialog while Aedan moves from a light Irish brogue to one heavier as we move deeper into the tale. I always knew who was speaking. There were exquisite scenes of passion which Hollie carried off very well and were again quite believable.The story moved along at a good clip, no slow spots. Where the story demanded the pace change, Ms. Jackson made the shift effortlessly. She is very much a story-teller. I was moved several times so much so that tears pooled in my eyes. This audio satisfied my every desire to listen to a romantic suspenseful story. It tugged my heartstrings producing a myriad of emotion.In my idea of a happy ever after story, this satisfied me completely after taking me through the emotional wringer. I kept thinking what Aedan and Aislinn once had—their love, far beyond the norm—had been lost because of the evil machinations of Aedan’s brother going far beyond the pale.This is an excellent, exciting, romantic and passionate story of a love that spans forever, of greed and jealousy in full pursuit.

Kind of weird.... But nice read

Had trouble understanding this book. The storyline was not hard to follow but just seems to be a lot going. Steamed to be a story within a story but sure I understood the purpose of the good vs evil theme.
The story read like true love souls connect despite time along with finding soulmate while fighting to save the universe from evil magik?, Gods?, witches? fairies? Or jealous siblings.... just not sure which. Background story just was a little weak
