Because of her uncanny ability to find lost objects, Tessa Marconi has been given the dangerous task of time-jumping back to the Persian Empire and ancient Greece to locate a precious medallion fragment. Trouble finds her in Xerxes' court—and so does the most beautiful man she's ever seen, Rustam of Halicarnassus. There's only one problem: he's a Centauri spy whose sworn duty it is to stop her.
Tessa has never felt such magical strength—or sexual prowess—as she feels in Rustam's presence. And as the conflict that grips Persia and Greece explodes, it becomes clear that their auras are strangely intertwined. Separately, they are powerless. But together, they just might save the world…and themselves.
This series sounded like a good idea at the time but I'm not sure that it quite worked out how the author planned. The idea of humans having to travel through time and space to gather a set of objects that will create together a key to understanding the universe and that there's a big bad galactic group who are trying to stop this is interesting but somehow it just didn't really work for me. I think that the authors felt an urge to experiment with older times without the pesky having to make the characters be historically accurate.Tessa Marconi is sent back to the ancient Persian Empire where she encounters Prince Rustam and they find that they feed each others abilities. They both have secrets and they have to try to fulfil their missions, with or without each other. However the idea of being without each other doesn't really appeal.It's not the best story I've read but it's not the worst. I wouldn't judge the author by this story.read more
