Caught between destiny and desire...
After diving into a black hole in search of the source of Meridian, the key to immortality, the crew of the Blood Hunter finds themselves stranded in an alternate universe.
Engineer Devlin Stark doesn't want immortality. He just wants to live long enough to get his revenge on the man who murdered his brother. Now, he's trapped in a strange world with a crazy woman who claims he's fated to be her lover.
Saffira Lourdes has a destiny: to save humanity and lead her exiled people to the Promised Land. Haunted by visions of the past and future, she's been sustained through the years by a dream lover. Unfortunately, Devlin doesn't believe in fate. But it's obvious there's a connection between them, one that will soon be tested by the limits of time and space. Saffira is about to make the crew of the Blood Hunter an offer they'll find impossible to refuse.
They're heading back to Earth, and they're going back in time...
Devlin is acting as engineer aboard the Blood Hunter and determined to somehow get back to his own universe and avenge the death of his brother. So much has happened recently and the crew has experienced many changes but his need for vengeance fuels his hatred. The last thing he expects is to meet a woman who claims to have experienced visions of them making love! Devlin doesn't do love, well he might have sex and if that's what she wants then, hell yes, he's up for it but this strange woman is clearly delusional and keeps spouting rubbish about time travel and wormholes. No, sex with Saffira would be a bad idea but the tables are about to be well and truly turned!
I absolutely adore this series with it's hotchpotch of amazing characters. Vampires, werewolves, telepathy and now even time travel! The concept was initially difficult to grasp and then when explained further, just wow, imagine all the possibilities and believe me Ms Croft really does an excellent job of just that. As usual, it's a story that pulsates with heat and the twist at the end? Simply fabulous. I sincerely hope there's more to come and hopefully it's soon. If you want a book with plenty of sizzle, action and humour then Temporal Shift is for you!
