Publisher's Summary

Thrown back to the year 1897, Victoria Ashton is mistaken for, and forced to impersonate, the spiteful, unfaithful Countess of Guildford, who's been missing for three weeks. Despite Victoria's attempts to convince the earl she's not his wife, her double's infidelity and lies make it difficult, especially when Victoria falls in love with a man who loathes her. 

Nicholas Thornhill, Earl of Guildford, is plagued with rumors he murdered his missing wife. When she unexpectedly reappears, he scoffs at her latest in a long string of lies. But the changes in Victoria make him alter his opinion as he forges a bond with her that crosses the boundaries of time.

Compelling start to finish

I’m particularly fond of books with all the emotions. I loved this unique mix of time travel/reincarnation, humor, sadness, romance, mystery, & suspense. Monica Burns has crafted a unique and unpredictable story. I didn’t always know where she was going to take me, but loved the many layers of Nicholas & Victoria’s story. A delicious mix of sweet and spicy, laughter and tears, and uncovering what happened to the original Countess of Guilford.

This is a bit tricky to write a review for because so much of what I loved about this story were the surprises, twists, and turns. I don’t want to ruin those for anyone. The secondary characters were fantastic as well: Edmund, Sebastian, Anna, &Nora. As there are two versions of Nicholas & Victoria, only one truly gets an HEA. However, their love truly is timeless and I like the way Burns brought them together across the century.

There’s a sweet epilogue and, grab your tissues, excerpts from Nicholas’ journals. Absolutely compelling start to finish.

Narration:
Duet narration by Zachary Johnson & Stephanie Németh-Parker was perfection. There’s so many characters, from different eras & with different accents. I adored how seamless the narration was. Johnson & Németh-Parker are such a great fit for Burns’ writing and it was an emotional yet delightful listen.

Perfection!

LOVED IT!! From the opening lines, I fell in love!
That bantering that comes naturally between siblings was showcased with such truth that you could see the sister think "score 1 for Nora". LOL. The relationships between all of the characters and how they interact with each other is fantastic and assists in making this an excellent read and listen. Each of the characters have their own unique personality that will draw you into the world Monica has created. You'll find something to love in each of the characters, except those that you don't like (villains) and you'll find more than enough reasons to not like them.


This world is beautifully crafted and 100% believable. One of Monica's gifts with her writing is being able to provide the reader with the images without being bombarded with details nor causing you to want to skim sections. This is important because it can cause the reader lose interest. Again, Monica rocks at providing the imagery without the wordiness.

This is a time-traveling book. Some may shake their heads and say "uhm, no thanks" in fear of "getting lost" or "losing track of which time era/place I'm in". This SO isn't the case with "Forever Mine". You won't get lost nor get tired of the switching between present and the past. The switching between the two time eras is expertly done and flows like a beautifully choreographed waltz - smooth transitions and with ease!

I mentioned characters before, and now let's chat about Nick and Victoria. WOW! I loved both Nick and Nicholas. You just can't help it. Meet them and you fall! Sigh! The connection between Nick and Victoria is instant and while some may have difficulties believing in the "love at first sight", here is another example of how Monica throws in a twist and then explains everything causing the reader to go "Oh... that's why she.... and then the ... OH YES!"! Nicholas, while a major alpha male, still has a sensitivity that I haven't read in other heroes in a historical setting. You learn all the wicked things he's been put through and immediately feel and say "oh hell no Nicholas! You deserve so much better! Let me show....." Poor guy has not been dealt a fair hand. Enter Victoria to rock and shake what he knows and he must now learn to trust someone that every fiber in his being is screaming he shouldn't. This trust and the emotional connection that is forged isn't instant (THANK YOU!!!!)! It evolves over time and by proving it is deserved.

Victoria is my kind of girl! We'd so be friends! Smart, sassy, sarcastic and will not put up with the BS! She calls them like she sees them! She is also sweet and funny. Yeah, we'd be friends! She doesn't need the man to save her but isn't afraid to be vulnerable.

The chemistry between Nicholas and Victoria is sizzling and steam but completely tasteful.

I could go on and on and on about how fantastic and wonderful "Forever Mine" is but we'd be here all day! Truly - one of the best books I've ever read and now listened to.

The narrators were outstanding! Each bringing forth the passion and overall emotion of each of the characters. They were perfectly cast for this audiobook!!

Time Travel Love

This was my first book by Monica Burns, and I really enjoyed her style of writing. This story was lush and had elements of eternal love and time traveling. I also love historical romances.

This book has elements of reincarnation, time travel, eternal love, and a bit of a mystery too. I don't want to say too much and give away the plot, but the book caught me within the first few minutes of listening.

Both of the narrators did a great job and I loved that it was duet style where the male narrator did all of the male voices and the female narrator performed all the female voices.

I highly recommend this book as you won't want to put it down once you start.

I was given this book to review, but that never affects my reviews as they are my honest opinion.
