Book Description:
HE VOWED HE’D COME FOR HER . . . Murdered before he could wed Regin the Radiant, warlord Aidan the Fierce seeks his beloved through eternity, reborn again and again into new identities, yet with no memory of his past lives.

SHE AWAITS HIS RETURN . . . When Regin encounters Declan Chase, a brutal Celtic soldier, she recognizes her proud warlord reincarnated. But Declan takes her captive, intending retribution against all immortals—unaware that he belongs to their world.

TO SATE A DESIRE MORE POWERFUL THAN DEATH . . . Yet every reincarnation comes with a price, for Aidan is doomed to die when he remembers his past. To save herself from Declan’s torments, will Regin rekindle memories of the passion they once shared—even if it means once again losing the only man she could ever love?

What did you think of the book? (Why this book?, New Author? Read more by author? Keeping? Thoughts on Hero? Heroine?)
I loved Regin and Declan's story. It was a fantastic tale of undying love and what I liked most is that even though Regin was fully willing to accept her man without question there were obstacles between them.

I loved hearing about the other reincarnations of Aiden the Fierce (Declan) and how they'd been with Regin only for Regin to realize that the difference with Declan is that she actually loved him in all his scared and tormented glory.

Declan's previous torture at the hands of evil Lore creatures really made for an interesting tale because right off the bat he hates all Loreans which would include Regin. The thing is that Declan is hiding his own abilities though he has yet to realize just what he is.

The hard part for me was that with everything Declan ends up doing to people of the Lore, it seems like life with Regin would be an impossible goal but Cole seems to make it easy. Normally, I'm right with her as she always does a fantastic job but in this I'm skeptical. Regin may have been willing to forgive and forget but so many other Loreans wouldn't be able to simply sweep it under the rug even with the protection of Nix. Still one of the best of the series.

Also the glimpse into Lothaire was interesting as was the strange relationship he seems to have with Nix but I have yet to become really intrigued by his character.

I can't wait for Lanthe, Uilliem and Carrow's tale (I read this book out of order).
