Product Description

Product Description

Approx. 119,000 words. Although part of a series, this is a standalone book.

"...‘Til the end of my life, I shall belong to you as your husband.”
That was the promise Adrian made to Emmaline.

And then, he was gone forever...

Two lovers separated by an evil curse...

It is 1807. Adrian Segrave, Viscount Bournemouthe, and Lady Emmaline Deramore are about to wed and British Society teems with excitement at this imminent love match. But Madeleine de Brandeville, a mysterious Frenchwoman, has her lustful and ambitious sights on the groom. When she sets her cruel plan in motion, she leaves devastation in her path.

A quest through time...

Heartbroken, Emmaline embarks on an adventure she'd never imagined having. As the world changes and chaos brews, her fate becomes linked with the Valthreans, a group of immortals who must learn to face a deadly enemy that threatens their place in the human world. But all the while, there is one thing she wants more than any other -- to get back her man.

When she finally finds her prize, he does not have a single memory of her, and her worst nightmares are far from over.

Is this love meant to be, after all?

5.0 out of 5 stars Five star roses 17 Feb 2014
By Chris
Format:Kindle Edition
Imagine falling in love then losing your love not for a couple of years but a couple of hundred and all due to the jealousy of another person, then you meet your love again and they have no memory of you. Hard to imagine but it makes you feel for Emmaline and she is such that you like her from the start but as she grows through the many years you have a much greater understanding and affection for her. Adrian/Adam also gathers your sympathy as he goes through the centuries never knowing who he is, you are cheering for them to meet and know that their love would be strong enough to last through the centuries. I hope that there will be more books in this series as there are different characters we meet that I would love to know more about as they caught your attention and affections in such a way that makes them unforgettable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transported to another world 5 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Again, a masterpiece by Miss Owens. The sequels will no doubt come up to the same standard.
Holding your interest throughout with the best descriptive dialogue ever, giving you a sharp colourful picture which seemed sooo real as you enter into the world of the Valthreans. Emotions running high and low throughout and a clamouring at the end for more. And what a delight to get more from the very talented Miss Owens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful tale of love that transcends time 23 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A beautiful love story that takes you across the centuries and various parts of the world. The writing flows well, and considering the "virtual" thickness of my ebook version, I found that there were no boring moments. The descriptions are wonderful, and, as a reader, you have no problem diving into the plot and the world created by the author.
Also, this first installment lays the grounds for a much bigger plot, that of the Valthreans and the Cult of the Snake, which I definitely want to find out about. And don't get me started on Max :) (Cue: bring on book 2 ASAP!)
Definitely a fab read :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical Fantasy and Gripping Romance 9 Mar 2013
By CLynn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
purchased An Eternity of Roses (The Valthreans #1) on 7 Jan 2013. (UK)

The greatest gift a writer can give readers is something different. Natalie G. Owens, in this series (more books to come happily), is doing just that. It's what I call trail blazing.

She has imbued historical fantasy with a brilliant love story and added dark magic and a great villain as well! The love story is gripping and the characters, Adrian and Emma are so well drawn and emotive, those looking for romance will be delighted.

Yet--! Well I said it was different didn't I, there is darkness and magic; there is a also tale of immortal beings woven into the plot and truthfully, I found that fascinating.

Because of the romance and the realism of the lovers, there is suspense which is caused by a well-drawn baddie in the guise of Madeleine.

There are glimpses into the next books which sound, again, very different and pretty spectacular. I am looking forward to reading them.

The writing is elegant and the plot and characters are handled well. As a matter of fact the historical aspect is spot-on.
Really enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetic Imagery drives this fantasy/paranormal romance 13 Jan 2013

Format:Kindle Edition
Review of An Eternity of Roses
The Valthreans #1
Natalie G. Owens
5 stars

Reading this book was truly a delight-and I use that word intentionally. A fast-paced, loving, lovable, romp through time and character and romance and horror, with characters who are so fully fleshed that I felt they were standing beside me, "An Eternity of Roses" is only the beginning-this is the first entry in a new series called "The Valthreans," about a race of immortals who commenced almost before recorded time.

Lady Emmaline and Viscount Adrian are so very deeply in love, and are soon to marry. It's 1807, a time when Society is all, and marriages are almost always arranged for convenience, politics, or matters of wealth. But these fortunate two are in love; until the villainess interferes. Madeleine put me in mind of the infamous Countess Elisabeth Bathory (yes, one of my favourite historical characters) in her depths of evil, the ambition of her evil, and her arcane murderous practices. She rules by fear, and she desires Adrian: nothing will stop her, or can she be stopped?

Natalie G. Owens writes prose as if she is writing poetry, truly. The imagery is superb, and almost every sentence contains a wonderful description that makes the reader want to pause to savour it. I can't wait to read the next in the series; in the meantime, "An Eternity of Roses" is a definite re-read.

The author provided me with an e-book copy in return for my provision of a fair and impartial review.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasurable read. 18 Jan 2013
By Michelle B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I truly fell in love with An Eternity of Roses. The characters were well developed and the story streamlined.
Natalie G. Owens takes us on a fantastic journey of two lovers that last for about two centuries. Both Lady Emma and Viscount Adrian are made immortal due to the evil plans of Lady Madeleine. They are torn apart before they can marry by this evil enchantress's spells.
You have an age old feud of good versus evil that is thousands of years old.
You will enjoy the adventures each lover must take to concur evil and regain their chance of Happily Ever After. There are plenty of twists and turns, evil vs. good(with good winning).
Ms. Owen is a new author to me and I will definitely be buying the books in this series as she releases them.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Eternity of Roses is truly a tale for fantasy and romance readers alike. 2 Sep 2014
By StearnsLaLaLand - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of the author's Eternelles Series...eagerly waiting for the next book with much anticipation and excitement. In the interim, it was brought to my attention that An Eternity of Roses was not your normal "romance" novel. Admittedly, I have been hesitant to read this book because I am not a fan of the romance genre...no offense to anyone, it just isn't my thing. What a mistake that was! I loved this book! It's a vastly rich tale that travels through time with beauty and wonderment at every turn. A fantasy story of witchcraft and eternal life; of secret societies and evil cults; of magic potions and deadly poisons; and, most importantly, a love story that spans the seas of time. Oh and there is some hot, steamy "romance" thrown in there too!

An Eternity of Roses is truly a tale for fantasy and romance readers alike. With lavishly lush details that magnificently describe the time periods, it was so easy to get swept away by this epic tale. Mystery, intrigue, fantasy, adventure, and romance, this is story not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Paced 16 Jan 2013
By Jenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wonderfully paced and exciting romance that grabbed my attention from the get go and held me captive until the end. The characters are amazing with so much life of their own that it is so easy to follow them throughout the story and feel their emotions.

As you are lead through the many paths this book has to offer you never know what emotion is hiding right around the corner.

Great read!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Can love survive the test of time – and an evil curse? 17 April 2014
By Kat-A-Tat-Tat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
DISCLAIMER: I was given a copy of this book by the author (via Goodreads/Shut Up and Read/Read It And Reap) in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

ADVISORY: This book contains mature, adult situations and dialogue.

Synopsis:

Emmaline and Adrian are just days away from their wedding when, in a fit of jealous rage, an immortal witch, Madeleine, places a curse upon them -- one which dooms them to spend an eternity apart. Madeleine kidnaps Adrian and causes him to lose all memory of his life before. She convinces him that his name is Adam, and that she is his wife, Marie. Even though she is with him she can’t make him love her, and his dreams are haunted by a dark-haired beauty. An old enemy of Madeleine’s turns up and she makes a run for it, so Adrian is finally able to escape from her clutches, and goes on to pursue a life of travel and adventure.

Madeleine’s curse on Emmaline purposely didn’t remove her memories of Adrian, because Madeleine wants to torment her for eternity. Over time, Emmaline follows clues, and one night finds her face to face with Adrian. But he doesn’t remember her, and they are separated before she has the chance to try and establish a connection with him. She eventually uncovers information that is valuable to the immortals. She also learns of the Valthreans (the immortal good guys), and chooses to align herself with them -- rather than with the evil Cult of the Snake (home to Madeleine and her cohorts). Over the centuries, she assists the Valthreans during times of war and peace, all the while searching for Adrian. They have some near misses, but fate and time do not seem to be working in their favor.

However, when an earthquake occurs and the devastation is broadcast around the world, Adrian (now known as Adam) is among the survivors. Emmaline (now known as Emma) uses her connections with the Valthreans to track him down, and travels to London to try and meet with him. Adam senses a connection and is strongly drawn to Emma, but his ordeal with Marie has left him damaged, suspicious and cautious. And with good cause, because Emma isn’t the only one who saw that broadcast. Now both Emma and Adam are on Madeleine’s radar … Can Emma find a way to break the curse, or will Madeleine destroy them all?

Comments:

I thought “An Eternity of Roses” was pretty good. It had an interesting storyline spanning several centuries and exotic locales. Emmaline/Emma was the main character, and as such was very well developed. Adrian/Adam’s character was less so, but he’s got less story-time. I hated Madeleine/Marie – justifiably. She was manipulative, evil, and bat-shiat crazy. Some of the minor characters were OK, but kind of glossed over. However, my favorite was Max. (I look forward to reading *his* story.)
