Soulmates across time. A sacrifice that could keep them apart forever. 

In present day, near the village of Ornes, France, Devon works on his master's thesis in history as he fantasizes about meeting a WWI American Doughboy. 

In 1916, during the Battle of Ornes, Stanley is a young soldier facing the horrors of the battlefield. 

Mourning the death of his friends from enemy fire, Stanley volunteers to bring the message for retreat so he can save everyone else in his battalion. While on his mission, mustard gas surrounds Stanley and though he thinks he is dying, he finds himself in a peaceful green meadow where he literally trips over Devon. 

Devon doesn't believe Stanley is who he says he is, a soldier from WWI. But a powerful attraction grows between them, and if Stanley is truly a visitor from the past, then he is Devon's dream come true. The problem is, Stanley's soul wants to finish his mission, and time keeps yanking him back to relive his fateful last morning over and over, even as his heart and body long to stay with Devon. 

Will Stanley have to choose between Devon and saving his battalion? Will time betray their love, leaving each alone? 

A male/male time travel romance, complete with hurt/comfort, French coffee, warm blankets, fireplace kisses, the angst of separation and true love across time.

great start to a new series!
 I was gifted my copy of this book, direct from that author. That I write a review was not required. 

Studying for his thesis, Devon is in France, right next to a War Memorial. Stanley is fighting in the trenches that Devon is studying. Somewhere along the way, lines are blurred and Stanley ends up in present day France along side Devon. Devon doesn't believe Stanley when he tells him who he is, but there is something growing between them. Both Devon and Stanley hope that time will give them what they want: each other. 

Sometimes, time travel can be a bit hit and miss, depending on the distances traveled but not so here! I really REALLY enjoyed this! 

I loved that Devon knew he fixated on the tiny details, knew that it was bordering on obsession with WW1 and what Stanley was living through. Loved that Stanley catered to, for the most part, Devon's obsession. Loved that Stanley knew what he had to do, even if it meant losing Devon. 

It's well told, from both men's point of view. It's well delivered, with equal amounts of time given to both men. I saw no spelling or editing errors to spoil my reading enjoyment. It get s a bit harrowing, when Stanley talks of the horrors of war, but that's to be expected. I actually thought it might come out clean, but it isn't, not quite. Not explicit though, and I did like that!

This is billed as the first in a series, and I would really like to read more! 

Thank you, Ms North, for my copy! I really did enjoy it!

4 solid, great start, stars
