Troy - Lovers In The Mist
Available from Whiskey Creek Press Torrid
Genia has finally reached Troy on an excavation. It has been a dream of hers for a long
time. She feels a connection to the land and city, especially before its destruction. She
hopes that by coming here on a dig she can satisfy the desire for this place.
Shortly after she arrives, several complications arise. The first are visions that feel so real
she can’t tell if she’s imagining it or really being sucked back into the past. Trying to
understand how she can see visions of the past -- a time she wasn’t even alive for -- leaves
her trying to get a grip on reality. Then there’s her boss and his urge to have sex with the
new girl on every dig. This time she’s the lucky one. Add in the gorgeous Achilles she just
met and has an instant connection to, and everything she thought she knew has now gone
out the window.
I found Troy - Lovers in the Mist to be a captivating story. I enjoyed the plot though there
was one spot where I wanted to smack Achilles and Genia for their actions. The characters
were engaging and fun. I could feel the instant connection between the two and knew that
they were really not rushing into a romance but rekindling something stronger that had been
waiting for them to remember.
While I love the points of view of the heroine and hero, and of course, the bad guy, I feel
that stories get more confusing and the reader more detached when you also get mom and
aunt and then an omnipotent view. This pulled me out of my immersion, but not out of the
enjoyment of the story.
It was good to read about a kick ass heroine and a man who can take pride in his woman
and her skills. They could have been a little smarter in regards to their personal safety, but
we can blame that on young love. It would be fun to see stories with Achilles cousins. Ms.
Summers has a good writing style which made this romance thoroughly enjoyable.
