An innocent, trapped for a millennia in the crossfire between a fallen angel’s curse upon two brothers, Kalyss Underwood has faced nine lives and nine tragic deaths trying to save her warrior husband, Dreux de Vernon, from his stone imprisonment.
Reincarnated for her tenth and final life, Kalyss dreams of a man with chocolate eyes, gentle hands and strong, broad shoulders a woman can depend on without fearing. In the daylight, experience has taught her no such man exists. When she’s attacked by a stranger she somehow knows and is protected by a guardian she shouldn’t remember, Kalyss must use every shred of strength she’s gained to free her husband, and with his help, face the mistakes of all her pasts in order to alter their heartbreaking destiny.

Nine lifetimes, nine attempts, nine deaths, nine rebirths, nine failures if Kalyss fails this last time to rescue her beloved Dreux from the statue prison that holds him before her brother-in-law Kai murders her again, she will move on to eternal emptiness without him. However, with each reincarnation, she does not remember the past, her spouse or his brother until it has been too late while Dreux has seen each time the horror of his blood killing his love. --- This time two enigmatic strangers intrude on her cycle of life and death by gifting her some might say cursing her with the knowledge of her past lives. Still as she eludes her constant predator surviving his assault for the first time in their millennium contest, she still has to figure out how to break the curse that has left her dead nine times and Dreux locked away in a prison. --- This engaging romantic fantasy uses flashbacks to tell what happened in the past so that the audience obtains a strong tale in which through nine lifetimes hate has proven stronger than love. Readers will believe angels populate the earth all seeking redemption with some of them being evil. BETRAYED is a superb battle in a war between good and evil fought on a battlefield of undying love. --- Harriet Klausner
It's very rare that a book grabs me; it's very rare that I even finish a book. I read this in one sitting. It is my favorite romance novel to date. It's about true love- true love that lasts eternally. Searching lifetimes and lifetimes throughout history, for that one true soul mate. I've re-read this one multiple times. It's fantastic. :)
A relative newcomer to the paranormal romance arena, Jamie Leigh Hansen definitely has the talent of an author for your keeper shelf. Her abilities with character development, complexity in plot and pacing stand out from the pack. Kalyss, the heroine of this novel, her debut and the first in her series, struggles with the idea of loving again after an abusive relationship with her ex, Sam, on top of fighting an evil she barely understands.
And, if that isn¿t enough, she then meets Dreux, a relative stranger in the present but her husband and love of 1,000 years ago. Kalyss slowly learns/remembers this past through her gift of visions. A strong alpha male, he exhibits the understanding, patience and sensitivity we¿d all like to see in more men.
Hansen has a keen sense for descriptions and realistic dialogue. She moves easily between the past and present and her scenes ring true in both environments. The gripping narrative tugs you in from the firs page and will send you hunting for the sequel, Cursed (already available), as soon as you¿ve turned the last.
This novel has passion, betrayal, wit and fear, and each emotion so well done that the reader feels them along with the characters. While the overall theme pits good against evil in the hopes that good will prevail, Hansen¿s book has a unique twist with her characters stuck on a karmic wheel as they try once again to right an ancient wrong. I highly recommend this book to any lover of paranormal romance and look forward to reading the sequel myself.
This book has it all, tears, laughter, sorrow and redemption. I could not put it down. The characters are well thought out and developed to hold the readers attention. I will and have been recommending it to anyone who will listen.
