This is the first story I’ve read by Ann Lawrence that was not an historical romance…and it certainly surprised me…in a good way! From the cover and a blurb here and there, I really expected some type of super-hero paranormal; but instead, what I read was a fantastic, edge-of-my-seat sci-fi time-travel story. I love time-travels if they’re done well and this one was certainly a blue-ribbon winner in that category! The heroine (Maggie) enters a virtual world through a video reality game and falls in love with a warrior hero (Kered) in that world. The trials and tribulations Maggie and Kered enter into in that virtual world are more real than fantastical and the choices they make to get to their happy-ever-after were riveting. I swear I could not put this story down from beginning to end—for a day and a half! Ms. Lawrence has mastered yet another genre for her readers and I heartily endorse this sci-fi virtual series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Take a video game, time travel, throw in puffins, dragons, a modern woman, and a sexy hero and you have Virtual Heaven. It sounds all kinds of crazy but it actually was a fun book to read. Ann Lawrence has written a wonderful book that is filled with romance and adventure.
So what did I like about this book? Since it's filled with action and romance, pretty much everything. The story begins a bit slow in the modern world but once it shifts to Tolemac this book takes off. Maggie and Kered are great characters and wonderfully written. I think Ann Lawrence did a great job in in showing both their struggles especially Maggie’s as she tries to fit into a not so modern world. The secondary characters provide a welcome flavor to the story. My favorite is Vad. There is a part in the book where he is playing cards with Maggie that just had me cracking up. I really do hope he gets his own book. I would love to see how he handles a romantic interest.
Virtual Heaven is a great read. Anybody who is looking for a romance book with a twist should read this book.
I received this book from JeepDiva in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.

When I first looked at the book, I thought it wasn't going to be interesting, but Anne proved me totally wrong. From what I read from the back of the book, I thought that Maggie was going to be some mooner mooning over some guy. Some flirt or something, but when I started reading the book, I found out that she wasn't a freak; that she was one of the bravest women I have ever read about. I loved the way the story was plotted. The way the future and the past was combined. I love Kered's character. Although he tended to be fearless, the only thing he feared was loosing Maggie. That was the most dearing thing I loved about him.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
