"An interesting, refreshing, Fantasy romance!"
I just got around to reading this book. First, I'll say I
really liked it Second, was it my imagination, or did
it verge on being a Highlander book? You've got a Scot
named Duncan; an immortal woman named Raven (the name of
the new Highlander series), and bunches of immortals
running around with pointy sharp things trying to remove
bits of other immortals to gain their power. Of course, I
didn't care since I love Highlander (and Duncan ),
but I thought it was strange. That said...
Eternity was a good book. It's about a witch named Raven
who, with her
mother, is killed by hanging by an evil Immortal named
Dearborne. Raven is an immortal though, and after her
first death she'll never age. A disciple of Dearborne's
named Duncan is revolted by the killing, and turns from
evil to sail to America. Unbeknownst to him, Raven is on
the same ship. Of course they're destined to meet in the
New World, and although they fight their passion for each
other... And of course, Dearborne follows.
I have to say there were some things in this book I'd never
seen in a romance novel, and I found them interesting and
refreshing, but since I don't want to spoil this for
anyone, you'll just have to read it to find out what they
are. But the book was nicely written.

Three hundred years ago, the good citizens of Sanctuary believed there was a Witch in their midst...
Her name was Raven St. James, a woman whose unearthly beauty and beguiling charms inspired rumors of Witchcraft. Only one man tried to save her from the hangman's noose -- Duncan, the town minister, who thought it strange that anyone could acuse this lovely and vibrant woman of anything wicked. Stranger still was the fact that Raven was a Witch. And even though she held the power to save herself, she could not rescue Duncan -- who died trying to help her...
Three hundred years later, the immortal Witch searches for the one soul who truly loved her...
At last, after centuries of loneliness and longing, Raven has found him. Her precious Duncan has returned -- reborn in the body of a man who has no memory of the past they shared. Yet Raven knows that the heart can never forget true passion. Their souls are destined to be together. But as Duncan reawakens to the power of Raven's love, so too does the evil that tore them apart three hundred years ago. Now Raven and Duncan must prove their love -- for all enternity...
