In SENATOR, MINE, history lover Eleanor travels to Pompeii with her boyfriend and is promptly dumped. Thinking she deserves a little foreign fling, she finds more than she bargains for in an online 1Night Stand matchmaker site. She signs up on the site in the hopes of a nice dinner with a hot Italian guy. She also indulges in a bit of antiquities buying and chooses an ancient signet ring. That signet ring leads her directly into the arms of a hot Italian. He just happens to be a hard-working and dissatisfied senator from the age of Augustus.
SENATOR, MINE is a sensual and thoroughly satisfying time travel romance. Darius is a sexy, compelling character with needs that conflict with his many responsibilities, and Eleanor's desire for love fills him like a missing puzzle piece. The fact that they are from two different centuries only adds a delicious tension to their romance. The attraction between Eleanor and Darius is hot and powerful. For a short novel, SENATOR, MINE is packed with steamy moments between the two characters that only left me wanting more. In fact, my only critique of the novel is that I found myself wishing for additional scenes with Darius and Eleanor. Their story offers up many possibilities. SENATOR, MINE is a fantastic package as it is, but Darius and Eleanor are such appealing characters that you it might leave you wanting more of them too.
Eleanor’s romantic tour of Italy shatters when her long-time boyfriend dumps her in Pompeii. Hoping an evening with a handsome Roman might save her trip, she contacts Madame Eve at 1Night Stand, then goes out to explore, buying a small golden signet in a mysterious antiquities shop near the Forum.
Darius, a hard-working Senator in Ancient Rome, is puzzled by the Sibyl’s words: You will not find love in your lifetime. Following her directions, he spots Eleanor, a barbarian wearing his stolen senator’s ring.
A night spent together may be just what they both need to break down the columns of time that stand between them.
