Sent away to college in America, Evangeline swore she would never return to England. Anger loses its value when tragedy forces her home to assume ownership of the family's beloved Greco-Roman museum.
Placing a foolish, drunken kiss on a Greek statue in the museum's basement, Evangeline unknowingly frees a Spartan prince from an evil oracle's curse. Suddenly, her lonely life is invaded by the rakish man with knowing emerald green eyes who never eats or sleeps, and seems to know her every thought and feeling.
Falling in love is dangerous, especially when it's with a man who has already been claimed by the bitter oracle, Demona. From the moment of her kiss, Evangeline is swept into Dorien's world of mystery, danger, and passion. The oracle's fury only mounts as they unravel Demona's darkest secrets, but not before Demona finds out about their unborn half-breed immortal twins.
Demona uses her knowledge of the future to manipulate and destroy, but sometimes love has a will, and a heart, of its own...
5 SASSY BOOKS!
Review: I was so lucky to have won this book during a comp on facebook. Kristine Cheney is just amazing, she's always there for her readers for any questions. She's simply inspirational! When you read this book you can't help getting swept up in her amazing story.
When I started reading "Spartan Heart" I was blown away with the emotion that is portrayed in the first couple of chapters. The book starts off at Evangeline's parents funeral, such sadness I was brought to tears. After that I just couldn't put the book down. It captures you and won't let you go till the very end and even then you are wanting more. You are taken for a journey through a world of powerful romance full of magic and wonder. There are so many twists and turns it'll always keep you on your toes.
Dorien and Evangeline...well who wouldn't want to be in their situation?! Kristine has really captured the passion between them, I swear it could melt the butter off your knife! lol Dorien's just so dreamy...every womans fantasy man and Evangeline she's strong, caring and just wanted to be loved.
The secondary characters were all great, in their individual way. Demona is the typical crazy bady... It was great seeing a female play the bad guy....yay! *winks* Then there is her creepy minion Phebus, who just gives me the heebie jeebies. We also meet Eliza, such a loving and caring person. And finally Taryn... who is just awesome! I'd love to have her over for a cuppa anyday! *giggles* The way she is with Evan, she's loyal and funny as hell. But also like a big sister that would do anything to protect you.
The only downer is that it came to an end, but great news...
"Spartan Heart P2" Is out the 5th of April 2011...YAY!! :)
