Overview

A witch's ancient curse propels talented flutist Gigi Perrin back to A.D. 408, to the court of the depraved Roman Emperor Honorius and his admirable sister, Princess Galla Placidia.

There, Gigi grapples with her disbelief about what has happened, and with the strange, new world of violent politics, social upheaval, and Visigoth barbarians straining at the very gates of an empire.

Through it all, she must struggle with her powerful attraction to a pagan senator and military commander, Quintus Magnus, a man exotically different from anyone she has ever known. On the brink of a dark and war-torn age, Gigi joins forces with Magnus, battling to save a princess and her people, and ultimately finding love amid the chaos, before the fall of Rome.

    Magnus had me at “Salve”. Love, Eternally, Book One

    Magnus had me at “Salve”. Love, Eternally, Book One of the Roman Time Travel Series is a magnificent story of love that transcends time. As her star is rising in the musical world, Gigi Perrin is transported from the 21st century to ancient Rome where she meets Senator Quintus Magnus. Their immediate attraction overcomes any language barrier, and they know that somehow their lives will intertwine. Tying them together across the centuries is a ring given to Gigi by her grandfather. Solid historical research is the scaffolding for this eternal love story which combines humor, passion, danger, debauchery and courage. Reminiscent of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander, this powerful novel is sure to please.

    How do you know you've got a winner on your hands? When you resent the interruptions that drag you back out of it. Gigi and Magnus come alive against the backdrop of a dissipated Rome already in decline. Engaging and intensely rewarding. The authors did their homework and it shows. I highly recommend this.

    Love, Eternally is an action packed story about a 21st century flutist who is sucked back to 5th Century Rome, through her music and an ancient curse, and then falls in love with a Roman senator and warrior. The love story is seamlessly written into this turbulent period of Roman history and provides an entrancing window on Roman life. I felt like I was right there with GiGi and Magnus as they fell in love and then had to escape the evil Honorius and be together, and I cannot wait for the next installment of the series. If you like romance, historical fiction or just a good story, this book is for you. I could hardly bear to put it down.

    Highly Recommended - A Must Read!

    Love, Eternally is an enthralling tale of power, love and destiny that transcends time. A witch’s curse takes the reader back to Ancient Rome where a 21st century flutist meets her destiny in a Roman warrior turned powerful senator, during a time of violent upheaval. The setting was authentic and thrilling, and I felt like I was there beside Gigi and Magnus step-by-step through perilous danger, heartache, and ultimately love. The authors did their research well and flawlessly integrated a love story in a historical period of great turmoil. Love, Eternally was an amazing and exciting time-travel read that shouldn’t be missed. I highly recommend it, and I can’t wait for the second and third books in the series!

    Take one twentieth century woman, Stir in some time-travel, add

    Take one twentieth century woman, Stir in some time-travel, add the dash of a sexy Roman Military Commander, Mix in a decadent emperor with a penchant for debauchery and you have the perfect recipe for romance, intrigue and the promise of Love Etermally. Weaving fact and fiction seamlessly together, the authors have created a delightful romp through Roman Times--a time when men schemed and killed to gain power and keep it, and women defied convention by choosing forbidden love instead of arranged marriages. Bold and certainly bawdy, the authors prove that the adage of "boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy get girl back again" never goes out of style--even if you live in the Roman Days of Old.. Kudos, Ladies, for combining fact and fiction in such an entertaining way.

    This romance novel can only be described as an epic. I was shocked and awed at the scope of this narrative and at the amount of research and attention to detail of the collaborative effort of author team Morgan O’Neill. I enjoyed this book based solely on the characters and story so much, and cannot wait to continue the trilogy, but I also could not deny that I felt I was learning something as I read. And, just like a student is grateful for a teacher who slyly makes learning fun, I was thrilled to have read this book.

    Love, Eternally by Morgan O’Neill is a delightfully unexpe

    Love, Eternally by Morgan O’Neill is a delightfully unexpected romp full of romance and danger through another era. While playing an impromptu performance in an ancient ruin in Italy, Gigi Perrin, rising musical genius in the 21st century, is suddenly transported back to 408 A.D and into the arms of Roman legionnaire, Quintus Magnus. And that’s only the beginning! A perfect blend of feisty character interaction mingled with intriguing glimpses of ancient Roman history, culture and lifestyle makes this paranormal romance unlike any other. Gigi is bewitching, a modern woman lost and alone in a barbaric realm of war and cruelty. Magnus, a super-human warrior turned senator is a hero to make your heart throb as he struggles between his duty to a brutal emperor he despises and his need to right the many wrongs in a world of corruption and debauchery. Both must find the strength to break free of their servitude in order to follow their heart’s desires. From the heights of passion to the depths of despair, Magnus and Gigi pull you along on an exciting, dangerous and passionate path that is the destiny they must forge together or die trying. This epic story, filled with dynamic, sensual characters, will take you out of this world on an adventure you’ll never forget.

    Love,Eternally is a historically authentic tale of two 'time cro

    Love,Eternally is a historically authentic tale of two 'time crossed'lovers. Gigi Perrin finds herself thrust back to a time in Roman history that is fraught with tension, intrigue and war. The emperor - Honorius - is a truly evil man who uses his perverted whims to keep his subjects in check. The hero, Magnus, is caught between remaining loyal to his sworn emperor, or to keep true to his own code of honor,and the arrival of Gigi complicates the situation more. Both Magnus and Gigi are immediately drawn to each other, but Magnus has to protect his new-found love from the sadistic Honorius before they can have any chance of being together.

    What stands out in this novel is the incredible attention to detail, and no holds are barred. From Honorius's rule of shaving all body hair, to the intricate workings of the emperor's council; from the manipulations of the ambitious nobels, to the hopelessness of the slaves; from the horrors of the battlefield, to the horrors of what happens behind Honorius's palace doors. Nothing is held back, and we get to experience the hardships of all aspects of this turbulant point in history.

    A fantastic read, rich with historical detail,and full of romantic suspense. Highly recommended!

    We all love to hate villains. Heck, I'm a peaceable person. But

    We all love to hate villains. Heck, I'm a peaceable person. But when Zachariah died on "Supernatural" I actually sprang out of my chair and applauded! Emperor Honorius is that guy, in spades! There are not strong enough words to describe his evil. Despicable, yes, but worse. Deplorable, yes, but worse. Anyway, I digress. 




    Clearly authors Cary Frates Morgan and Deborah Cordes O'Neill did a good job of bringing me into the world they created. They did this through their characters and in describing the setting so well, making you feel like you were with the slaves in a Roman kitchen and in the baths, etc. They wove their research in subtly, so you didn't feel like you were being hit over the head with it, including only the details necessary for the story. It was action-packed and the romance between Magnus and Gigi felt genuine. LOVE, ETERNALLY was not a book I wanted to put down, as I needed to find out what was going to happen next. 




    I am looking forward to the next in the series, AFTER THE FALL! In fact, I just left this review to buy it,and the next one RETURN TO ME, and the first in their new Italian time travel series, THE OTHER SIDE OF HEAVEN. So I don't know why I am hanging around here, I've got some books to read! Thank you, Morgan O'Neill, for a great read!

    I absolutely loved this book and its heroine Gigi! She is bright, beautiful and, at times, vulnerable, which makes her a perfect match for the sexy, strong Magnus. They are wonderfully written characters and their romance is one that stays with you long after the last page. I also enjoyed the historical aspect of this book and felt like I actually learned something about this time period in ancient Rome – without sacrificing story enjoyment. This is a well-written, fantastic book and I can’t wait to read Books 2 and 3! I am definitely a fan of Morgan O’Neill!

    I don't normally read paranormal romance, but I was intrigued by the time travel aspect. I'm glad I gave Love, Eternally a chance because it was an engaging, interesting, unique read. I could feel Gigi's confusion and fear as she found herself inexplicably transported to ancient Rome. The dangers and uncertainty facing the hero and heroine were engrossing and engaging. I keep finding myself wanting to discuss specific parts of the book but don't want to spoil it for you!
    All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed Love, Eternally and would recommend it to anyone who loves time travel stories. I enjoy historical romance, and think that's partly why it appealed to me.

    I absolutely loved, Love, Eternally. This is the first in a time-travel romance where Gigi is transported to ancient Rome and into history. Morgan O'Neill's writing is fluid, easy to read, and the historical detail fascinating. The romance is truly satisfying and I'm itching to get my hands on Books 2 and 3 to continue the journey of Gigi and Magnus. Five stars, as I couldn't put this book down. Loved it.

    Perversely, I read this book based on a scathing review and a one star rating and I want to express my absolute gratitude to this reviewer for their unwitting encouragement. I opened the first page and hardly had time to draw breath as I was immediately pulled into 402 AD Italy in the middle of a bloody battle between the ancient Visigoths and the Roman army, led by the hero, Magnus. Once we are well and truly hooked, the story moves to present-day Italy and to the heroine, a celebrated flautist. When she travels back to ancient Roman times, I was as effectively transported as the heroine, Gigi . The era was brilliantly researched and depicted so realistically I could see and feel the places and people as the story unfolded. Although the debauchery and cruelty of the Emperor was sometimes hard to stomach, I admired the authors’ courage in not sugar-coating the reality of the times to pander to the reader’s sensitivities. Overriding all this was the wonderful romance between Gigi and Magnus conducted in secret and with the constant threat of capture and death hanging over them. I love historical romance with edge-of-the-seat adventure and this book has it all.
