When Natalia (Tally) Marta, vampire and traveller, takes her client to visit the seige of Stirling Castle in 1314, she is caught and held hostage for ransom by Robert MacKenzie, a Bruce clansman. Rob finds himself drawn to the willful, stubborn and very different English lady he has captured and the relationship becomes an intimate, highly-charged sexual pairing. Swiftly, Tally and Rob realize their bond is more than sexual, that the emotions stirring their hearts are true.
Christian Lee Hamilton, vampire, one of the last true southern gentlemen, and Tally's ex-lover, knows the 1314 time marker enough to jump back and help Tally return home. His arrival at Bannockburn adds complications, for Christian finds himself drawn to Rob MacKenzie as much as Tally is. But neither of them can stay in the past forever. To do so means certain death.
The first book in the Beloved Bloody Time series is a fun, steamy and exciting time travel adventure.
In the 23rd century, vampires created the Chronometric Conservation Agency to preserve history and protect humanity’s future. The agency also offered tourists trips back into the past with vampire guides called travelers.
When Tally takes a client back to 1314, she is taken hostage by Robert MacKenzie for ransom. Rob and Tally soon realize that the growing bond between is more than just sexual. Christian, Tally’s ex-lover time jumps to bring her home and finds himself as drawn to Rob as much as he is to Tally, but they can’t stay in the past or risk certain death.
This book is an entertaining and unique tale with an interesting concept of time travel with intriguing twists and turns. The author switches time periods smoothly throughout the story with great detail without overwhelming or confusing the reader. The settings are vividly painted drawing the reader into the story and making them feel like they are part of the adventure.
The chemistry between the three characters is scorching hot and the author arouses the imagination with explicit sex scenes, sexual language and menage and some anal sex. The reader can easily relate to the compelling characters and their emotions in this captivating read.
When it comes to time travel books I am a picky reader and I found this book to be a well written and engaging read with a smooth flowing plot, full of suspense, drama and two sexy alpha males that keeps the reader engaged and wanting more. The world created by the author is creative and fun with lots of potential and I am looking forward to reading the next book in this great series.

When I read ‘vampire’ and ‘time travel’ in the description, I was curious. Turns out, this is a melting pot of Sci-Fi and Paranormal with a touch of Historical. The author writes this story with several primary characters and changes POV’s often. I didn’t find it distracting at all. Rather, it kept me wondering how the characters would tie together.
Tally, initially introduced as Natalie, is a vampire with an appetite – not for blood. Tally goes back in time – part of her job – and meets Robs, a Scotsman. Rob is an intelligent man that had an uncanny ability to read Tally and anticipate her actions, which I sometimes found unrealistic (yes, I know… like vampires are so real.) Anyway, sparks fly and the temperature rises with some hot scenes between the two.
When Lee, a flame from Tally’s past is introduced, I thought it would be a love triangle. Nope! This is a no holes barred MMF romance. I found the moments between Rob and Lee sweeter than most of the ones Rob and Tally shared. The emotional involvement between Rob and Tally seemed a little lacking. I want to feel a little yearning before the clothes come off.
Though this read entertained me, and kept me turning pages, it didn’t win my heart or my daydreams because of the weak emotional romance. BUT it did keep me thinking after it ended. I really liked that this was a vampire book with some pretty deep Sci-Fi elements. This is a great start to a series and worth the read for those who like sci-fi and vampires. A great mix!
Overall: 3.5 stars
Sensuality level: 5 (Hot MMF scenes)
