Book Description

Approx. 119,000 words. Although part of a series, this is a standalone book.

"...‘Til the end of my life, I shall belong to you as your husband.”
That was the promise Adrian made to Emmaline.

And then, he was gone forever...

Two lovers separated by an evil curse...

It is 1807. Adrian Segrave, Viscount Bournemouthe, and Lady Emmaline Deramore are about to wed and British Society teems with excitement at this imminent love match. But Madeleine de Brandeville, a mysterious Frenchwoman, has her lustful and ambitious sights on the groom. When she sets her cruel plan in motion, she leaves devastation in her path.

A quest through time...

Heartbroken, Emmaline embarks on an adventure she'd never imagined having. As the world changes and chaos brews, her fate becomes linked with the Valthreans, a group of immortals who must learn to face a deadly enemy that threatens their place in the human world. But all the while, there is one thing she wants more than any other -- to get back her man.

When she finally finds her prize, he does not have a single memory of her, and her worst nightmares are far from over.

Is this love meant to be, after all?

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I happen to be a big fan of the Highlander series since it first came out. I simply loved Adrian Paul in his role of tortured hero fighting for justice and survival. Who can resist a character like that? :)
 
So one day, I started thinking that there are some amazing series out there in the paranormal/fantasy romance genre, but I couldn't think of a specific one featuring immortals that live under a legal and political system they formed over time. Immortals with their own style of government and their own code of ethics. Basically, a secret society of these special individuals that aims at furthering the interests of its people and the humans they live with. Of course, as with each government, there is opposition--some justified, and some not so much.
 
Another thought I had was: what if Man had someone--or something--powerful and magical to come to the rescue at certain crucial points in history? Some things could have happened differently--or turned out much worse. And what if Man's fate and future is determined by warring factions of these immortal beings? The germ of this idea started in my mind, and together with my interest in myth and adventure, the Valthreans were born.
 
The story and practices of the Valthreans constitute the backdrop of each book in the series, the glue that holds them together. Some pretty amazing characters make up the higher ranks of this unusual organization--sexy heroes and kickass, determined heroines--and my goal is to tell you their stories and happy endings :).

Review of An Eternity of Roses
The Valthreans #1
Natalie G. Owens
5 stars

Reading this book was truly a delight-and I use that word intentionally. A fast-paced, loving, lovable, romp through time and character and romance and horror, with characters who are so fully fleshed that I felt they were standing beside me, "An Eternity of Roses" is only the beginning-this is the first entry in a new series called "The Valthreans," about a race of immortals who commenced almost before recorded time.

Lady Emmaline and Viscount Adrian are so very deeply in love, and are soon to marry. It's 1807, a time when Society is all, and marriages are almost always arranged for convenience, politics, or matters of wealth. But these fortunate two are in love; until the villainess interferes. Madeleine put me in mind of the infamous Countess Elisabeth Bathory (yes, one of my favourite historical characters) in her depths of evil, the ambition of her evil, and her arcane murderous practices. She rules by fear, and she desires Adrian: nothing will stop her, or can she be stopped?

Natalie G. Owens writes prose as if she is writing poetry, truly. The imagery is superb, and almost every sentence contains a wonderful description that makes the reader want to pause to savour it. I can't wait to read the next in the series; in the meantime, "An Eternity of Roses" is a definite re-read.

The author provided me with an e-book copy in return for my provision of a fair and impartial review.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasurable read. January 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I truly fell in love with An Eternity of Roses. The characters were well developed and the story streamlined.
Natalie G. Owens takes us on a fantastic journey of two lovers that last for about two centuries. Both Lady Emma and Viscount Adrian are made immortal due to the evil plans of Lady Madeleine. They are torn apart before they can marry by this evil enchantress's spells.
You have an age old feud of good versus evil that is thousands of years old.
You will enjoy the adventures each lover must take to concur evil and regain their chance of Happily Ever After. There are plenty of twists and turns, evil vs. good(with good winning).
Ms. Owen is a new author to me and I will definitely be buying the books in this series as she releases them.

I was given a free copy of this book by the author for an honest review.

I am a huge fan of the author's Eternelles Series...eagerly waiting for the next book with much anticipation and excitement. In the interim, it was brought to my attention that An Eternity of Roses was not your normal "romance" novel. Admittedly, I have been hesitant to read this book because I am not a fan of the romance genre...no offense to anyone, it just isn't my thing. What a mistake that was! I loved this book! It's a vastly rich tale that travels through time with beauty and wonderment at every turn. A fantasy story of witchcraft and eternal life; of secret societies and evil cults; of magic potions and deadly poisons; and, most importantly, a love story that spans the seas of time. Oh and there is some hot, steamy "romance" thrown in there too!

An Eternity of Roses is truly a tale for fantasy and romance readers alike. With lavishly lush details that magnificently describe the time periods, it was so easy to get swept away by this epic tale. Mystery, intrigue, fantasy, adventure, and romance, this is story not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Paced January 15, 2013
By Jenn
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wonderfully paced and exciting romance that grabbed my attention from the get go and held me captive until the end. The characters are amazing with so much life of their own that it is so easy to follow them throughout the story and feel their emotions.

As you are lead through the many paths this book has to offer you never know what emotion is hiding right around the corner.

Great read!!

DISCLAIMER: I was given a copy of this book by the author (via Goodreads/Shut Up and Read/Read It And Reap) in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

ADVISORY: This book contains mature, adult situations and dialogue.

Synopsis:

Emmaline and Adrian are just days away from their wedding when, in a fit of jealous rage, an immortal witch, Madeleine, places a curse upon them -- one which dooms them to spend an eternity apart. Madeleine kidnaps Adrian and causes him to lose all memory of his life before. She convinces him that his name is Adam, and that she is his wife, Marie. Even though she is with him she can’t make him love her, and his dreams are haunted by a dark-haired beauty. An old enemy of Madeleine’s turns up and she makes a run for it, so Adrian is finally able to escape from her clutches, and goes on to pursue a life of travel and adventure.

Madeleine’s curse on Emmaline purposely didn’t remove her memories of Adrian, because Madeleine wants to torment her for eternity. Over time, Emmaline follows clues, and one night finds her face to face with Adrian. But he doesn’t remember her, and they are separated before she has the chance to try and establish a connection with him. She eventually uncovers information that is valuable to the immortals. She also learns of the Valthreans (the immortal good guys), and chooses to align herself with them -- rather than with the evil Cult of the Snake (home to Madeleine and her cohorts). Over the centuries, she assists the Valthreans during times of war and peace, all the while searching for Adrian. They have some near misses, but fate and time do not seem to be working in their favor.

More About the Author

Hey y'all! Thanks for checking out my page. :)

Pink velvet and black lace. Light and darkness. A world of contrasts exists in my stories because every rose has its thorn. I love a good old-fashioned love affair, mystery, fantasy, history, and the supernatural. My heroes are brooding, worthy and brave; my heroines are strong, resourceful and loyal. The settings are sometimes exotic and off the beaten path.

In my late teens, I published award-winning poetry, short stories and feature articles in local publications. Later, I became a lawyer, but came to my senses and began writing professionally in 2007. Married, with one son, I now call the beautiful island of Malta my home after eleven good years in Atlanta, GA. When I'm not working or writing - or muttering to myself about it like a batty old maid - I enjoy spending time with my family and friends (both online and offline), reading, cooking, watching a good movie, taking trips, and ogling shoe store displays.
