"Good Intrigue but wished for more romance"
This book was very good as far as the intrigue and mystique
are concerned but it was a bit lacking in romance, for my
taste at least.
Benjamin Two Eagle is transported into the future 150 years
through an agate amulet. He arrives in the modern world, in
the exact time and right place, to help a young woman that
is an FBI agent. Julia's assignment to expose a stolen
artifact ring has gone wrong and Benjamin is amazed that
this woman is as tough as a man when it comes to her job,
yet still very beautiful. They are soon fleeing the bad
guys and Julia starts to realize Benjamin is about more
than he seems to be.
I found no fault with the main plot line but although the
H/H were very obviously attracted to each other, they had
no time to act on their baser instincts as they were
dodging bullets nearly the entire book. However I will
never eat another Hershey's Kiss without thinking of this
book and the remark the hero makes as he has no knowledge
of what this little chunk of chocolate is, since he is from
so deep in the past. It was a very romantic and memorable
The only love scene was very steamy as well. And although I
understand the Intrigues are normally heavier plot wise,
this book still loses a heart for lack of romance. In spite
of this, I still look forward to reading other books by
this talented author.
