From the shadows of the past.
Prim and beautiful professor Roseleen White clutches her new prized profession - a thousand-year-old Scandinavian sword. And suddenly, a dream stands before her: a magnificent Viking warrior sworn to satisfy Roseleen′s every desire.
Accursed for untold centuries, mighty Thorn is now enslaved to a woman. Yet it is Roseleen who is the true prisoner, held willing captive by a handsome barbarian who sweeps her back to the ancient past on a journey of sensual discovery. But only by banishing him from her life forever can Roseleen free Thorn from immortality′s chains - forcing her to make a devastating choice that will either imperil their future or preserve a love more powerful than time
Until Forever by Johanna Lindsey is a simple historical romance, although historical isn’t really the right word. Yes, the main characters do travel back in time, but mostly they spend time in the modern days.
Roseleen White is a history professor, who collect ancient weapons and she just got her hands on an ancient Viking sword known as “Blood drinker’s curse”. But Rose isn’t aware of its power and she accidentally summons its original owner.
Thorn Blooddrinker isn’t too happy when he is summoned, because women in the past weren’t exactly kind and only use him to gain more power. But Roseleen isn’t interested in this power, neither is she interested in sharing his bed.
It was funny to read about Roseleen summoning Thorn; it seems he was always occupied with other things in his realm, so his demands to send him back because he has better things to do were hilarious. Thorn reaction to the modern world, cars and all the kitchen appliances is also funny to read.
The ending was a little basic to me; I would have loved to see it a little different. But overall this novel was well written with a great love story.
