Forever Mine is a lovely romance traveling from the present back to the past of 1897. The story opens in the present when Victoria enters an art gallery to find a special picture and a very special man, though she doesn’t really know what they represent. When an explosion takes place, she falls into a coma and is rushed to the hospital. Nick is the owner of the art gallery. He has always had a special feeling for the painting that caught Victoria’s fancy, as well as his two prized portraits (which look exactly like the woman who had just entered his gallery). Nick stays in the hospital, not wanting to leave Victoria alone. Victoria wakes up to find herself transported to 1897 where she is the Countess of Guildford, married to Nicholas Thornhill, Earl of Guildford. Victoria had been missing for several weeks, and when the earl finally finds her and brings her home, she is surprised to find it is the real life scene and home that was in the picture of her future. It takes fighting, running away, kidnapping, and having a baby before the earl and countess iron out their differences and find true love. The time they spend together is cut short though when Victoria suddenly finds herself back in the present.
Author Monica Burns has brought together the past and present in a very different time travel romantic novel, meshing the two time periods together in perfect form. Forever Mine is an excellent story that will keep you turning the pages, finding excitement in every chapter. Forever Mine will be enjoyed by the romantic, historical and time travel reader.
