Publisher's Summary

The moment she starts her doctorate in Oxford, Sarah is beset with mysteries. An old portrait in her rented house bears an uncanny resemblance to her. A new lover insists he's a ghost. Her attractive, sinister supervisor obstructs her research at every turn. An ordinary hill on the meadow fills her with fear, and not just her, but also the man with whom she falls in love. And every time she has sex, she hallucinates strange places and other times.With her own life and soul at risk, Sarah uses sex magic and a sequence of visions to travel between different times, worlds and places. On an epic journey, she battles an ancient evil to solve a mystery dating back centuries. A mystery that holds the truth of her origins and purpose.

romance story hidden under everything else

First, let's say that I agree with the other reviewers that this story does delve into the realms of pornography. The sex scenes are definitely not for the more timid listener. And, unfortunately, not all of the sex scenes further the story. But I think underneath all of the sex and witchcraft involved in the telling of this story, is the underlying message of love that can span centuries. I liked the evolution of the story with the characters learning more about each other, their heritage, and the past, leading up to the end conclusion (the second listen was better because all the little clues and memories made more sense). I think ultimately this book is about committment to the person you love. In my opinion, this book has a little bit of everything: the supernatural, mystery, romance, and erotica. If these things interest you and your sexual horizons are a little broader, you will like this book.

More porn than prose

If you are into descriptions of hard-core pornography, then you will love this book. Unfortunately, like it's cinematic brethren, the storyline is very weak and basically serves as a way to move from one graphic sex scene to another. Although technically it can be classified as fantasy, since it contains witches and ghosts, any reader who is actually looking for this type of story will be disappointed. The correct classification for this story is "erotica".

Esoteric Erotica..

Sarah manages to secure a delightful rented house at a ridiculous price, so she will be able to continue with her doctorate at Oxford. She's a go with the flow girl and does not question any of the startling developments that continue unabated through-out, the esoteric dreams she stumbles into every-time she has fantastic sex helps her along, (I don't think would look a gift horse in the mouth either!) .
It has a surreal feel, jumping to and fro constantly but is handled well. Olivia Knight has written an erotic sumptuous delight and there are scenes aplenty written in a prosaic flowery language that is very very vivid and never boring.

The actual plot could of been better, but the mythology and erotic scenes are strong, I fell in love with Joe and wish he had a bigger part to play, plus I would of like more antagonist input, there were some marvellous dark macabre characters I just wanted the author to explore further.
The book lost me about three quarters the way through, I just lost interest, just not enough going on for me personally, still, I do not regret buying the book it is definitely not your run of the mill erotica novel, not a rude word in sight but our author gets her message across very eloquently all the same.

Mills & Boon meets Henry Miller meets Harry Potter

There is no doubt that this novel is highly erotic, in fact some listeners might find it a bit too raunchy in parts. Not a bad story, but far too long winded with a number passages on witchcraft and spells. The book starts ery promisingly but once it gets into the second third it does get bogged down in witchcraft,can't say I understood much of it with the heroine having visions of her former life as a witch and mooning around bemoaning the loss of her lover. Having said this if you have an interest in the occult and want an erotically charged love story this could be for you. Would have given it 4 stars had it been 2 hours shorter, as it was it took me over 3 months to listen to it.
