Calum and Beth are soul mates who have lived many lives together, lusting, loving, and dying for each other. While their lives are often turbulent, their eternal bond is secure - or so Calum thinks - until Beth decides to live a life on her own. Left behind in the Upper World, he sees a wrongful imprisonment in her future, so he bargains with Finn, an elven trickster, to return to Earth, rescue Beth, and reclaim her heart. Unfamiliar with the twenty-first century, he must determine who plots against Beth while playing Finn’s sensual game, a game designed to awaken her repressed passion and keep them on the run together.
Beth has no recollection of their lives together and didn’t ask this sexually charged stranger to come to her aid. When she takes a risk to help an abused woman, she is horrified to find her house ransacked and her life threatened. With a secret to keep, she takes the greatest risk of all - trusting Calum. Her life soon depends upon re-evaluating everything she thought normal as she becomes embroiled in Finn’s game. Her eternal bond with Calum will only be saved if Beth can rescue the man who spanned worlds to rescue her.

What an imaginative story! From the gripping prologue to the beautifully romantic ending, Ms. Clare's novel never disappoints. I love her heroine and hero, Beth and Calum, not only because of their virtues and valor, but also because of their frailties and foibles. Her elf, Finn, is wonderful, not pat or dull, but truly a new and vibrant "soul" and a one-of-a-kind literary treasure. The twists and turns of plot will lead you on a merry chase, the attention to detail superb. I guarantee you will love this novel!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I love this fantasy of passionate immortals passing through time over and over again, being both helped and hampered by a bored and powerful elf. You can't not pull for the hero and heroine, especially at the end when you understand their struggles so well yet have no idea if they'll be able to continue. Their hearts weren't the only ones racing.
I was provided an ARC by the author but that does not compel me to give anything other than an objective and unbiased opinion of the work.

I immediately fell in love with the characters: the stubborn, independent woman and her fierce Highland protector. The story has a love that spans lifetimes, lots of steam, suspense, and a trickster elf who enjoys watching and interfering with humans, all told with a good dose of humor. Overall a fun and steamy read. Perfect for any lover of paranormal romance.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I have to come right out and tell you I'm a pretty tough critic. It takes a lot to get me to sit up and pay attention to a book - and Love of Her Lives grabbed me from page one. Not only is Sharon Clare's writing experienced and clean and tantalizing, it's colorful, too. Not one page goes by without feeling drawn into the world she's created, and the reader comes out at the end of the book feeling satisfied and like they've just spent time with a very good friend. She knows her characters well and her passion for them shows on the page.
What sucked me in was the way Clare used past life theory as the backdrop for a modern romance. This story has it all - passion, love and suspense all rolled into one. Calum is the uber-hero, all strong muscle and soft heart and Beth is the perfect foil, and soul mate, for him. Of course, their journey isn't an easy one but it IS unique - and I won't tell you why because it'll spoil all the splendor for you. And then there's Finn -- a wonderful, playful and sometimes annoying (in a tongue in cheek kind of way) fifth wheel in Calum's and Beth's search for ever-lasting love. But Finn's never heartless. He's got something to prove as he prods Calum and pokes Clare toward their destiny.
If you love romance with a unique paranormal twist (and the ending DOES have a twist), this one's for you. You're missing out if you pass up Love of Her Lives.

Love of Her Lives by Sharon Clare From the first page of Love of Her
Lives, Beth won me to her side with her independent spirit, beauty, and
political involvement in her world. And the gorgeously ripped Calum who
has loved her for a thousand years completes the man candy/reluctant
lady experience. Oh, but the trickster, Finn, enjoys the amusement of
manipulating Beth and Calum. He makes Calum impotent and sets him three
challenges to be completed before he can regain his sexual prowess. As
well, the pair must fight to clear Beth’s name in a murder/theft plot.
Sensual images infuse the pages giving off their musky aromas as surely
as any mood-setting candle, and drawing the reader into the heat of
Calum’s slow but purposeful lovemaking as he struggles to make Beth
remember him and their legendary love. This is a delightful tale which
will reignite your belief in old-fashioned justice and eternal love.

For a hot, fun romance with a dash of intrigue, mix to-gether: one sexy, fish-slightly-out-of-water ancient Scottish warrior; a modern day woman with trust issues who trusts the wrong man; and an elfin trickster who amuses himself playing mind games with humans. Stir in a 1000 year old love bond and what you get is a delightful, sizzling read. I devoured Love of Her Lives, and can hardly wait to curl up with Sharon Clare's next book.Was this review helpful?

Sharon Clare has written a sexy romp with an old-fashioned Scotsman and one headstrong, stubborn woman. The sparks between these two, Calum and Beth, aren't new as they've been lovers in a previous life. Calem crosses the centuries with a little help from a mischievous fae. I loved the dialogue and chemistry between this couple. Beth's sharp tongue and wit keep it funny. I enjoyed her confused, inner dialogue. Clare gives us a great alpha hero with Calum. There are scenes when the romantic in me practically sighed.
Fans of Karen Marie Moning and Diana Gabaldon will love this paranormal by Sharon Clare. Clare's writing is lyrical and addictive. The characters of Calem and Beth are multi-dimensional and endearing. I'm looking forward to more from this author.
