Blurb: Immortals born in the thirteenth century, Lucien Riordan and Ranulf Styr have waited centuries to be reunited with their love. Want for her cemented their friendship through time even as it tore it apart. There’s only one catch – she’s never met them before.
Eris Brue is flattered by Lucien and Ranulf’s attention but she doesn’t want to get tangled up in an office romance, especially not with two men. Their joint seduction overcomes her resolve and she gives in even though she knows they are keeping secrets.
Lucien and Ranulf have a short amount of time to make Eris love them, because once time has her, everything could come to an end.
Review: When D. Renee Bagby asked me to review Eris, I was ridiculously excited. Although I have never read her work, I do judge a book by it’s cover and this cover was definitely intriguing. However, I quickly realized that this was more than just a good cover, this is an amazing novel!
Eris is a perfectly crafted story that takes you on a journey through the friendship, desire, and romance between Eris, Lucien and Ranulf. Unlike the typical Boy + Girl = Sex model found in many erotica titles, Renee takes pride in developing rich, three-dimensional characters that continue to grow at every turn of the page. I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster. I was surprised when every secret was revealed, angry at Lucien and Ranulf for their unthinkable betrayal, destroyed at Eris’ heartbreak, and triumphant in their love.
Despite the novels length, I thought Eris was a very easy read – a nod to Renee’s fantastic story-telling abilities. I found myself stalking the novel, devouring each page, and craving to know what happens next. I was also incredibly impressed that there wasn’t a single grammatical error in the book, which is something I’m quite critical about when reviewing novels.
Overall, Eris is a timeless romance that I would absolutely recommend to everyone! D. Renee Bagby knocked this title out of the park. I don’t do ratings, but if I had to categorize Eris, I would call it “Literary Perfection.”
Comment: What do you think of the cover? If you could travel back to any time period, where would you go? Could your heart love two men at once like Eris?
