Equally anticipating and dreading the reunion, they’ve vowed to let her decide which of them she wants to be with.

The Lucien and Ranulf of the past are rough and dangerous. Eris is doing everything she can to survive them while searching for a way back to her time. But returning home means confronting an undeniable truth, one that could end their relationship forever.

I must first say that I am so pleased to have been asked to review Eris. I absolutely love time traveling and double the trouble love, but my favorite romances are when people do the hate-first-love-later… or in this case, the love-first-hate-later-love-again thing. Or something. Time traveling is complicated, I know.
This book is a combination of all my favorite things, and when Eris falls for the two men in her life but gets thrown back in time, meeting their past selves, who don’t love or know her…. let’s just say it was beyond trippy for me to see her so sad but always trying, never giving up on winning them over. The writing style was great, simple and descriptive enough to make me feel like I wasn’t reading a book. I also enjoyed the way the story was told, with Eris in her time and then Eris in their past. Not many books wear lengthy well, but this one was amazing for me.
It’s a definite recommend if you like time traveling romance with two guys who couldn’t be more different except where their love for the same woman is concerned. It was entertaining, it grew on me in more ways than one, and I can easily say with confidence that this is one of my all-time favorite reads. Ever.

About the Author
‘Home is where my stuff is’.
That’s Renee’s motto… one of many.
An Air Force brat born and raised, Renee has traveled all of her life. She was born in the Netherlands and raised in Japan, Texas, Florida, and finally Virginia.
Her travels didn’t stop once high school ended. She attended college in North Carolina at Elon University, graduating with a B.A. in International Studies and a minor in Asian Studies, Japanese concentration. And after graduation, she returned to Texas to start her life with her husband and rejoin the ranks of Air Force living as a military spouse. From Texas, it was off to California for four years where she finished her first manuscript.
It wasn’t until she, her husband, and their two cats moved to Maryland- where they currently reside -that she submitted said manuscript to Samhain Publishing, Ltd. and received a contract.
Given her upbringing and the military tendency of traveling, Renee knows a lot about adapting to new locales and being ‘the new kid’. It’s no wonder the majority of her stories tend to be ‘fish out of water’ stories.
Unlike many authors who said they had a love of reading and writing since a very young age, Renee used to hate reading and writing wasn’t even a thought. If it wasn’t on TV then it didn’t interest her.
All that changed when her elementary school held a reading contest. A gold medal was waiting for all the students who read a certain number of books and Renee was determined to be one of them. She received her gold medal and a love of reading. From YA Romance to Mainstream Romance, Renee discovered an addiction to the happily-ever-after endings the romantic genres offered.
She didn’t start writing until high school. Back then, her stories were a way to pass the time in class so the teachers thought she was taking notes. It wasn’t until another contest, a literary contest, surfaced that she considered writing a story with a definite beginning, middle, and end.
While she didn’t finish the story in time for the competition and thus didn’t get a chance to submit it for consideration, her English teacher at the time- her very first beta reader -gave her the encouragement needed to keep at it.
It took a few years and many, many rough drafts but Adrienne was eventually born. And, as cliche as it sounds, that was the beginning of the end.
Renee loves reading (romances and manga) when she has the time but finds she loves writing even more. Her imagination entertains her far more than anything she could find on television, though it is a lovely distraction at times. And, the writing community has introduced her to good friends who are just as crazy and out-there as she is.
