I found the characters fascinating, yet completely believable. It was easy to relate to Daitre and Joban as they had real life issues dealing with. I thought that the banter between them was entertaining. It was clear that they were attracted to each other, however the way these two traded insults would make you question if their attraction was for real.
Joban’s ability would allow for him to adapt to any time period, however, this would not have applied to Daitre. Initially I was concerned about her ability to adapt in the modern world, however, as the story progressed my fears were alleviated. She could definitely hold her own. I liked that she was accepting of her shifting abilities in light of the fact that prior to all this she had no idea what she was.
Joban was your typical alpha male. Many may think he is a jerk for how he treated Daitre at times, but the truth of the matter was that he would do just about anything to keep her safe. He is one tough cookie, but when it comes to Daitre he is a softie at heart.
The pacing was well balanced and the story was well written. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this story. It kept my attention from start to finish. The story depicts that no matter how far you may go, you cannot outrun your problems. The best way to deal with it is to stand up and face it head on.

In an effort to protect Daitre from his enemies, her father, Alain announces her betrothal to his Captain of the Guards, Joban. Joban has protected Daitre for years, standing by stoically and aloof as she works in the local orphanage. Feeling resentful at his apparent lack of tender emotions towards her and with little choice, Daitre marries Joban before being whisked to present day New Orleans 300 years into their future. The underlying tone of the book even in the modern day has the feel of an historical. The book’s pace is fairly even gradually increasing as the suspense and action pick up. Towards the end the pace moves much more quickly as conflicts come to a head and resolutions are made. Over time Daitre comes to recognize that Joban’s actions speak louder than the words she longs to hear. Joban finds Daitre is all he needs to be grounded in the here and now. Overall this was a great read and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a bit a magic in their reading. Review copy provided via Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.

this is a paranormal romance with a touch of suspense mixed in ~ we start out in the eighteenth century and end up in the twenty-first century. quite a twist
very original storyline. I enjoyed how the story flowed.
Joban works for Daitre's father in 18th century France as Daitre's bodyguard. He has been in love with her for years but believes she hates him. Daitre's father and Joban come to an agreement for Joban to marry Daitre to keep her safe from her father's enemies.
Joban has the ability to time travel as he is Fey hence them ending up in the 21st century. unfortunately their enemies have followed them to New Orleans, 2017. Joban must find a way to keep Daitre safe and teach her to control her shifting into her cat as she is just coming into her powers while trying to figure out a way to rid themselves of the enemy for good.
I enjoyed this book and hope that the author gives us a sneak into their future lives.
Daitre is reliant upon Joban for her protection as a target of the SANs group that are targeting Fey. After being transported to 2017 she has to adapt and develop as well as control her abilities as a Fey shifter.
Joban is distant in the beginning which confuses and frustrates Daitre but they slowly become closer. As they begin to express their love for one another they must also deal with the dangers surrounding them.
If you enjoy paranormal suspenseful romantic stories then you will enjoy this book. I would enjoy reading further in this world of Fey and learn more of Daitre's and Joban's story.
