I read this book and instantly fell in love with it. The characters are wonderfully written and I love how the author tells the story of a husband and wife in ancient Greece, while still maintaining the present story. "Assassin's Heart" by Monica Burn's is such an amazing story of reincarnation and love lost, but found again. Plus, the cover is so nice to look at.....
The summary of this amazing book was taken straight from Goodreads.....
"The truth of the soul.
Lysander Condellaire never understood why he had telepathic and telekinetic powers until the night his Praetorian father tortured him and left him for dead. Now, the half-angelic, half-demonic face he sees in the mirror is a reminder of the monster he must keep hidden or face expulsion from the order of assassins know as the Sicari. But his dreams of Ancient Rome hint at a destiny he finds hard to accept, especially when it involves the woman he loves, but can never have.
The consequences of desire.
A gifted healer in the Order, Phaedra DeLuca witnessed her mother’s murder when she was just a little girl. The haunting memory makes her loathe everything Praetorian. When she travels to Rome in search of an ancient artifact, she must work alongside a man who once cruelly rejected her love and healing touch. But her dreams of Ancient Rome tell of an irreversible and possibly dangerous future. For the distant past and present are about to collide–with the one man she is destined to love."
If you are a lover of reincarnation and ancient history, then this book is for you. Monica Burns, draws you into her characters feelings and dreams. She has an art for mixing the present and past, into this amazing story, without giving too much away and without confusing the present with the past. There are some very descriptive sexual encounters, so be warned. But those encounters aren't in every page and it adds to the story in a way that is both sexy and tasteful. I highly recommend this book and hope that you will want to read it again and again, just like me.
Rating: 5/5 paintings of ancient Greece.......
