"fantastic romantic fantasy"

At the moment of his death in May of 1573 Kieran McIntyre was given a choice either to pass on to whatever comes next or become an immortal guardian pledged to fight evil. He chose the latter and the half a millennium Guardian is on the hunt for the demon who escaped after he captured him 1888 when he switched bodies so nobody knows what Jack the Ripper really looked like.

Kieran is now on the demon's trail which leads him to the home of reporter Julia Carpenter who he refused to give an interview to when she asked for one. He warns her she is in danger but she ignores his warning and the next morning she finds one roommate dead and another one near death. Kieran who knows Julie is his Destined Mate takes her to his home because she will give him more power and strength and if they make love; he will be able to track the demon telepathically. Although he loves Julie and she loves him, he tells her she will be free once the demon is thrown back into the portal that leads to its hell. Julie, who has much to absorb knows she must make a decision whether to live an ordinary life or be the Mate of a guardian.

Maureen Child has written a fantastic romantic fantasy starring interesting characters. At first Kieran doesn't want to be bound to any woman even though what he has with Julie is a wondrous gift. Julie has to decide if she is dealing with a crazy man or a man who stayed on this plane to fight evil, a true hero. ETERNALLY is a powerful love story and the magical elements make the tale totally original .

He was a Guardian. An immortal fighter of evil.

The sexy, sword-wielding stranger standing before Julie Carpenter claimed he was out to destroy a demon and that she was its next target. As he whisked her away to his fortresslike mansion high in the Hollywood hills, she could only hope Kieran was not the true danger.

For centuries Kieran had heard the legend of Destined Mates...but he never believed until now. He could read Julie's thoughts, sense her deepest desires. And he knew she wanted him just as he knew joining with her would make him strong enough to defeat any demon from hell. But the cost might be losing the woman who was his true salvation.
