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 Review:

First of all, I want to say that I loved reading this story.

The first time Lainie meets Christien is in a club owned by Christien himself as she delivers some papers for her boss whom she doesn’t like. Immediatly Laine has a feeling she’s met him before, and having dreams/flashes of a past life of a 14th century Countess leads to more confusion. On the other hand, Christien is taken by her, and in her he sees the woman he loved 700 years ago, but had no way doing anything about  as she was then married to a count. As time goes by Christien is more convinced Lainie is reincarnate of his one and only true love, Countess Madeleine murdered during the 14th Century.
As they get to know each other, danger lurks everywhere threatening to keep them apart again.

As the story advances,  Christien discovers more intriguing facts about his lovely Laine, who she really is.

I have to say the author did a good job of interchanging between the past (flashbacks) and the present, giving the reader a look of what really happened to Countess Madeleine. Christian and Lainie are well drawn characters, the genuine attraction they feel for each other just leaps off the page. This is a great read, and will be checking out the author’s other books.

5/5 Stars
