"outstanding, sensual Time-Travel"
I am always looking for fresh voices in Romance. New
writers have such a special passion for their stories. And
boy does Jane Quinn have a passion! Ancient Ties is a Time-
Travel that is a sensual journey of one woman to find her
soulmate, a man who lived 2000 years ago in Roman England.
Janney Forrester starts this journey not quite in the
manner she planned. It was to be a dream vacation, to
soothe her wounded spirit. Devastated by her cheating ex-
husband, she is travelling to the area of England where the
Romans once occupied. Her trip takes her much farther than
she could ever imagine. In Bath, she steps through a portal
to see what lies on the other side of a ruin wall. Instead
of a mere inspection of the ruins, she finds the world on
that side of the wall is intact and still very much in the
hands of the Romans!
Marek Verus is a weary soldier. A man who has seen too many
battles and has too little in life to show for it. His
warrior-hardened spirit is provoked by this strange blond
woman in the odd clothes. To him, the Auld Gods gifted him
with the means to renew his spirit, his soul.
Quinn is a hot writer, giving not only the emotions of two
weary souls wanting something more in life, she gives the
full range to their sensual passion. Janney is a woman
scarred by trusting a man, so she is not so quick to
surrender to Marek. Both Janney and Marek are fully
realized characters to come to life under Quinn's careful
Quinn's delivers on all levels a book that is fresh, full
of passion - her's for the wonderful story - and the
characters for a love that defies all.
