    I'd been looking forward to reading this one since I found out about it - it sounded absolutely fascinating. And it was. I loved this story, the way it flowed. There was passion and conflict and confusion and lies and love. Everything you could possibly want from any novel. I liked the historical aspects and how Gigi had to adjust quite fast to the changed world. Knowing a little about Roman history, I would have enjoyed more Latin and historical terms particularly with the bathhouse, but I unders I'd been looking forward to reading this one since I found out about it - it sounded absolutely fascinating.

Knowing a little about Roman history, I would have enjoyed more Latin and historical terms particularly with the bathhouse, but I understand how that could have alienated readers with no knowledge. Regardless, I would have relished the challenge and education that would have provided. This isn't a story of instant-love. The feelings build as the story progresses. It's the natural flow of a river feelings towards a sea of love. See, it has me all poetic and everything! I was a little disappointed with the ending, as it didn't make sense to me, not fully. I would have rathered it didn't happen, but it did and I'll still read on in this series as it was such a great, immersing read. I really felt as though I was there and that's the best thing about really good books.

She's one of those weak, save-me types of girls I can't stand, and he seems like the best guy friend everyone likes but no one wants to f*ck. The worst character, by far, is the emperor. He's written nearly exactly as Malcolm McDowell's portrayal of Caligula. Its been done, and much better. He comes off more as an incomplete character instead of sadistically insane. Honestly after half the book I sent it back for a refund.

    I didn't like this book at all. If it wasn't free on my Kindle I would be upset. The plot was very weak, the chemistry wasn't there, and the time-travel aspect was totally unexplored. I can't even begin to delve into the weaknesses of this book. I'm shocked it has so many good reviews. I am normally a sucker for time-travel books (look at my 5 star review list!), and even I could barely force myself to finish this one.

    This is a story I didn't want to put down. Well-researched, rich in history with fabulous descriptive details that transported me back to 1st century Rome. The tension never wanes as the feisty heroine tries to survive, enslaved in a foreign time. No one has ever needed a hero more than Gigi Perrin, and Magnus is a wounded hero that has much to overcome. Lucky for Gigi, Magnus is a hero that delivers.

    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 author's did their homework and it shows. I highly recommend this.

At first Gigi thinks it is some kind of joke but it gradually dawns on her that in some mysterious way she has been transported back in time to ancient Rome in the year A.D. 408. This is just where her troubles start! Gigi appears in the middle of a crowd of strange people who she has never seen before and she is immediately arrested and held captive by the obnoxious Emperor Honorius. Gigi is put to work as a kitchen slave and is desperate to keep out of the way of Honorius at all costs as he has made it clear that he has not finished with her and that she is in grave danger. Gigi meets a Senator called Magnus who is (obviously) handsome and kind to her and she immediately falls in love with him. The characters are all a little stereotypical, there is the sexually perverted tyrant, the handsome rescuer and Gigi is the helpless maiden crying ‘help me’ from the top of a tower in a fairy tale. The plot was quite weak and the reason that Gigi was transported in time was not really explained. I don’t want to sound prudish but I really did not like the gratuitous sexual depravity in one of the chapters, it was in my opinion put in simply to titillate and was quite unpleasant.

But Gigi and Magnus will fall, too--in love. (It's still a romance novel, after all.) I'll certainly be buying the rest of the trilogy when it comes out.

    I wish I could give this even more stars. Love, Eternally is a wonderful time travel novel to ancient Rome. The heroine is a very strong woman, who overcomes many terrible things, including slavery. The hero, Magnus, is right up there with the best male heroes in literature. There was a lot of heart in this novel and it was beautifully written. I can hardly wait to read the sequels.

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.

    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.

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!

    What can I say other than, I will love this book eternally. Gigi Perrin is a great heroine, she is just the right mix of feminine strength and gentleness. The storyline is great, with a good balance of adventure, misadventure, romance and a great leading man. I can't wait to get my hands on the rest series. I would definitely recommend you read this if your a romantic at heart. (I got this through a First Reads Give away)

    This book was fluffy time travel fun. I must point out that I was laughing at a super famous in demand flutist as the heroine. Also I swear god you should read just for these few lines: "How did you incapacitate him?" Queen Verica asked. "Poison, perhaps?" "I kicked Honorius in the balls- twice." Given what I've read about Honorius- I hope someone really did kick him in the balls more than twice.

    This is a great book! The time travel sequence where Gigi goes back to ancient Rome is interesting because she saw the Romans looking non-Hollywood with their make-up strange. Gigi was a humorous character who speaks her mind in the past. Sometimes it gets her into trouble. I can't wait until this is made into a movie. I would love to see James Purefoy from Rome cast as Magnus. I learned a lot about ancient Rome by reading this novel. I can't wait to follow Gigi again in After the Fall.

    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 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!

I finally made good on my mental note to read something by them and bought Love, Eternally. This is a time-slip book, where Gigi from the present day is transported back to 400AD Ravenna. I have no idea about historical accuracy, but the dialogue felt realistic enough for me. Gigi is a spirited young woman, who does really well in a difficult set of circumstances. Magnus is very much an alpha male, but really quite sweet with it. You got to see the world from the points of view of several secondary characters, which gave a more rounded view of the complex political machinations that were going on around the main story. The storyline was mostly set in the past and the fact that Gigi was from a different time wasn't massively significant, so I wondered whether the time-slip element was really necessary, but perhaps it has more significance later in the series. I read this book very quickly and thoroughly enjoyed it. I will be reading more by Morgan O’Neill.

    I saw this on Amazon Kindle's deal of the day list and it caught my eye because I like the time period - 5th century, fall of the Roman empire. The heroine is magically transported there, a la Outlander (which I enjoyed). First in a series. The reviews on this site are mostly glowing. FINAL UPDATE A very enjoyable read, though not up to the standards of Outlander (which sort of sets the bar for time travel romantic historical fiction) - I wanted a bit more detail on daily living in the period, but I saw this on Amazon Kindle's deal of the day list and it caught my eye because I like the time period - 5th century, fall of the Roman empire.

I liked this enough to download the first sequel, After the Fall. Side note: The author is actually two writers, working together.

    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 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.
