Date Published: February 21st 2011
Description: Sent away to college in America, Evangeline swore she would never return to England. Anger loses its value when tragedy forces her home to assume ownership of the family's beloved Greco-Roman museum.
Placing a foolish, drunken kiss on a Greek statue in the museum's basement, Evangeline unknowingly frees a Spartan prince from an evil oracle's curse. Suddenly, her lonely life is invaded by the rakish man with knowing emerald green eyes who never eats or sleeps, and seems to know her every thought and feeling.
Falling in love is dangerous, especially when it's with a man who has already been claimed by the bitter oracle, Demona. From the moment of her kiss, Evangeline is swept into Dorien's world of mystery, danger, and passion. The oracle's fury only mounts as they unravel Demona's darkest secrets, but not before Demona finds out about their unborn half-breed immortal twins.
Demona uses her knowledge of the future to manipulate and destroy, but sometimes love has a will, and a heart, of its own
Where to start with this book, I think Kristine cheney is very imaginative and she has a gift for detail. I love her work.
The main female lead in this book is Evangeline /Evan. I loved her because she had a vulnerable Side to her, she made me think of a lost child looking for someone to love her. In the start of the book Evan was at her parents funeral, and oh my god what a way to start a book, right from the start I wanted to cry *wipes tears*, it was such a dramatic start, Evan wouldn’t of got through her hard time if it wasn’t for her best friend Taryn, now this is a girl I loved. I so wish she was my bestie because she was so funny and strong. Taryn ended up dragging Evan for a drink to help her relax and get over the sad time she had been having, so they go out to a local pub and Evan gets wasted.
When she gets back from her night out, she decides to check out the tunnels. The tunnels run under ground to the museum her parents owned. There she sees a marble statue, she knows who the statue is, its Dorien – Prince of Sparta. Here Evan starts to feel low, not sure how to get the love she so desperately needs. For one foolish seconed she gets up on a chair and kisses the statue. The kiss ends up doing more then Evan ever imagined it would. After the kiss Ean has an accident and gets knocked out cold.
Dorein –Prince of Sparta, he was betrayed by an oricle. Cursed into the marble statue, Evans kiss freed him from his cold prison of stone. But it all so does more then she could ever imagine. Dorien has to take Evan to safty after she hurts her self, he carries her back through the damp tunnels, she ends up getting wet and cold.Once in Evans bedroom Dorien has to find a way to warm Evan up, she’s turning blue because she is so cold… so he strips her out of her wet clothes until he reaches her panties and I thought the shock of seeing the panties was so funny because Sparta women didn’t wear something like that.lol. I loved the way this book was steamy with out the sex,. It made you use your mind to picture what you wanted to be happening. And sometimes I think this is better because it brings you closer to the characters. I think the love these two share is so buetiful , its something every girl wants..someone to take them away from everythin and love them no matter what...wow im so jealous lol..
Ok I better stop there before I tell you the rest of the story, just know that there is a big ending to this book, and I cant belive Kristine left it where she did….when it came to the end I was like NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!, how can it end there…I need more, I need to know what happens. so hope I get the next book soon so I can see what happens with the surprise.
This is a little note for Kristine. Kristine I loved this book chick. I think it was very well written, I loved the idea of the statue coming to life by the kiss. It reminded me of a male version of sleeping beauty . it was so romantic but steamy at the same time. but im going to tell you off for leaving it where you did. What a cliff hanger. Lol .
I think you guys should go out and try this book..i think you will enjoy it..
