Title: Eternity (The Immortals #1)
Author: Maggie Shayne
Summary via Goodreads: Three hundred years ago, Raven St. James was accused of witchcraft…Only one man tried to free her from the hangman’s noose–Duncan, the town minister, who died trying to save her. Three hundred years later, the accused witch still lives and longs for her love…At last, after centuries of loneliness, Raven has found her precious Duncan. But as he awakens to the passion of his past life, so too does the evil that tore them apart. Now Raven and Duncan must prove their love for all eternity…
I always knew I was a witch.
She was lying. Even in this state, he knew she was. He lifted a hand, touched her hair, felt it’s silk just as before. He could even smell it, and he knew its scent was the same. “If you’re not the woman I saw hanged in the town square,” he whispered, “then light the candle and let me see your face.”
This is another kindle freebie I recently picked up. It’s got mixed reviews, but most have been positive. The story itself sounds interesting and I’m looking forward to reading this one.
