Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Squires (One with the Darkness) brings her flair for historical vampire romance to revolution-era France. Henri Foucault, the charismatic, wicked duc of Avignon, accidentally turned young Françoise Suchet into a vampire. A few centuries later, Francoise, now jaded San Francisco bartender Frankie, gets the chance to travel back in time and kill Henri. When modern Frankie merges with her 18th-century self, the resulting mix of innocence and experience makes her even more fascinating to immortal Henri than the first time around, while the wise future voice in Francoise's head allows her to discover more of Henri's complexity and secrets. The heroine's dual nature is exquisitely executed, and Squires's lush writing skillfully entwines the dramatic story of an aristocratic smuggler's resistance to corrupt revolution with the romantic tale of lovers drawn together across time.

Time for Eternity by Susan Squires
Vampire Paranormal Romance- Sept. 1st, 2009
4 ½ stars.

This book combines 2 of my favorite genres vampire and time travel. Susan Squires guides the reader through a complex story that is sure to capture the imagination.

Frankie is vampire hardened and alone. Cruelly abandoned after being turned a vampire, she had to learn to tame her blood thirst the hard way and she has never forgiven her maker the Duke, Henri Foucault. If she could find him she would kill the selfish bastard herself! By lucky circumstance she is given the chance to travel back in time and Frankie is determined to find her maker, Henri and kill him before he turns her into a vampire and avert her suffering. Frankie arrives in France during the French revolution but in the wrong place! As she desperately travels to find the Duke she sees herself just before her past self meets him and discovers why you shouldn't meet yourself in time. Once she sees herself, her essence is absorbed into her innocent and naïve past persona. This wouldn't be a problem except her younger self is mesmerized by the Duke and will not listen to the pleas and warnings her future self tries to warn her of.

This was an exciting book as I tried to figure out how this story could be resolved. I enjoyed the heroine's journey. It was intriguing as Frankie discovers new depths to the Duke and we find the true reasons behind his actions. The heroine was extremely likeable and gutsy and I enjoyed how the author delicately balanced the time travel within the storyline. The future Frankie changed the past Frankie developing her into a stronger and more intriguing woman. One who transformed history for the better. Henri is: handsome, bold, and noble.

I have been a fan of Susan Squires "Companion" vampire romance novels for a while now, so I was very excited to get this book. "Frankie" Suchet is a bartender that also happens to be a vampire. A chance encounter with another vampire leads to a discovery of a machine that can take her back in time to meet her vampire maker, Henri Foucault. Frankie hates Henri and life as a vampire-she decides to travel back in time so she can kill Henri before he makes her into a vampire. An intriguing beginning to a romance....

Squires has always enjoyed writing about history, and this book really does seem to take the reader back in time to 18th century Paris. The descriptions of the streets, main places and churces of Paris, France are incredible. She also enjoys using historical characters to tell the story. It takes place during the revolution, and Robespierre and his mistress Marta Croute are both characters. The time machine is by Leonardo Da Vinci.

Both of the fictional characters Frankie Suchet and Henri Foucault are well drawn and depicted, so much that a reader can imagine themself in the background watching everything. I also love how Squires interweaves some of the characters of "One with the darkness" ( Jergen and Donna Poliziano ) into this story.

I intended to read this book over a few days and then review it, but I was so entranced by the characters that I found myself reading it over the course of a few hours. It is a riveting and unpredictable tale. I can't wait until Squires next story in the series, "A twist in time," is released in March 2010.

Bitter vamp lady time travels to the French Revolution to kill the guy that made her--but crap--she totally forgets the mission when she gets there. I really liked the premise of this book; the french revolution and vampires--they were totally made for each other. But this was disappointing... Even so, the first half of it was good enough to make me go the distance. This is one of those books where the protagonists are required to be blind to the most obvious solutions for the plot to work, and man, it got really old. I was also sort of confused at the end, it was really convoluted and it went on for way too long. Then again, I didn't really care much by the time I got there; maybe you wont either. I've only read one other book of this lady's (One with the Shadows) and I remember it had some of the same problems (great premise, but turned out really mediocre). That said, it didn't suck, so maybe look for it, or that other one, at the library.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In San Francisco, vampiric bartender Frankie Suchet was made during the French Revolution by Henri Foucault who deserted her soon afterward. Donna Poliziano enters the bar because she sensed a vamp inside. They discuss Henri but disagree as Donna thought he was good while Frankie believes he was evil. Donna sends her a book written by Leonardo Da Vince who built a time machine that needed the power of a vampire to work. It is under the Baphistery in Florence. Donna suggests she go back and correct the wrong as she did it to save her beloved Jergen (see ONE WITH THE DARKNESS). Frankie travels to Italy with plans to kill Henri before he changed her.

Frankie arrives in 1794 and sees naïve Francoise. Unable to stop Frankie ends up inside a bewildered Francoise. However, the young woman has no time to worry as her elderly companion Madam LaFleur was arrested and their house is on fire. She pleads with Duc Henri D'Avignon to save her life. He does by claiming her as his ward. Robespierre accepts Henri's lie, but his companion Madame Croute is irate. Henri takes his new ward home and tells her he will place her on his ship going to England next week. Henri thinks of making love to Francois as she seems a weird mix of innocence and experience. He knows he cannot save LaFleur but foolishly tries; however, her heart gives out. Meanwhile as naive Francois sees Henri's kindness; Frankie inside her head keeps telling her he is cruel and needs to die while Croute wants to execute both of them.

The intriguing premise of two Francoise essences sharing one body comes across as plausible while Henri is a sort of vampiric Scarlet Pimpernel although Frankie takes a long time to overcome her bitterness; in fairness she had over two centuries to build it up. Still fans will relish this exciting vampiric romance that mostly brings alive the deadly dangerous French Reign of Terror.
