An eternity of passion cannot be quelled by society.
Once upon a time Donovan assured Lily all of her dreams would come true. But how could he keep the promise of a fairy tale when her truest goals could not involve him, though her deepest desires did? Now, Lily has it all—love, passion, a family, and the career of her dreams—with Christopher. But something is lacking. She and Donovan have spent the last ten years living apart, and the soul mates are eager to reunite. Can Donovan keep his promise to give Lily all she desires, even with Christopher in the way?
For Lily and Donovan, the past is a mirror to the future that cannot be shattered.
Donovan is convinced Lily has been his love for all eternity. Determined to unravel the past, they embark on a journey to discover where it all began. For centuries Donovan has stolen Lily’s heart while forced to suffer for his love. How much can a soul endure before the breaking point is reached and a monster emerges? Can the demons of the past be combated to pave the way for happiness in the next life? Or has the abuse suffered in this life already turned Donovan hell bound? Time and again, one woman has destroyed their happiness. It’s time to silence her once and for all.
Lily has moved on with her life. She has a successful business, a happy marriage with Christopher and two beautiful children. But there is a part of her that has always been missing and she still yearns for it every second of every day – Donovan. Now he is back – with his own family and a career as a prominent therapist - and even though they are determined not to hurt the ones they love, their passion for each other burns just as hot as it always has and refuses to be ignored.
“My eyes close off the world. I hadn’t planned on this intimacy, but he’s right. Physical contact is but a moderate concern compared to the threat lying in our pounding hearts that yearn to burst out of our chests and merge into one, not for the night, but for eternity. The urges of my femininity can be conquered, but the drive of my essentia is a different beast. “Then let’s stop fighting and be honest. It is far better to embrace rare moments like these than to sit on our hands and let frustration rule. Whatever keeps us content and faithful is all we should be concerned about.” His inspiriting scent causes me to dissolve into his embrace. With a velvety touch he pleads into my ear, “Please, Lily. Don’t ever let what’s left of us go.”
“We could have had it, Lily. It was in our hands, and I don’t understand why we were robbed.” Snow falls like tears from heaven upon us, as if the angels mourn fate’s cruel joke. Stolen moments like these are all that remain of Donovan’s dream.”
“I need a nap. Hopefully my blood will congeal in my sleep.”
“Drinking coffee on a stress-filled day is only wise if you use Valium instead of sugar. Sadly, I didn’t have this thought two cups ago.”
"My love for you is endless and shall never die."
