Review for Spartan Heart, Part One

Title: Spartan Heart Part One
Author: Kristine Cheney
Description: Sent away to college in America, Evangeline swore she would never return to England. Anger loses its value when tragedy forces her home to assume ownership of the family's beloved Greco-Roman museum.

Placing a foolish, drunken kiss on a Greek statue in the museum's basement, Evangeline unknowingly frees a Spartan prince from an evil oracle's curse. Suddenly, her lonely life is invaded by the rakish man with knowing emerald green eyes who never eats or sleeps, and seems to know her every thought and feeling.

Falling in love is dangerous, especially when it's with a man who has already been claimed by the bitter oracle, Demona. From the moment of her kiss, Evangeline is swept into Dorien's world of mystery, danger, and passion. The oracle's fury only mounts as they unravel Demona's darkest secrets, but not before Demona finds out about their unborn half-breed immortal twins.

Demona uses her knowledge of the future to manipulate and destroy, but sometimes love has a will, and a heart of its own.

Summary : After nine years, death brought her back home. Her parent's death questionable, as any murder would be, coupled with the guilt for the occurrences before they died, Evangeline keeps to herself after the funeral until her quirky and outrageous best friend talks her into a night out on the town. After some drinks to drown out the pain, guilt, and loneliness she goes home and embarks on an adventure. Entering the secret tunnel that her dad only ever told her bout that would lead to the treasure recovery room that has some of the most valuable relics. One klutzy moment lead her to gaze upon what she considered must be the most valuable relic there, the statue of a Spartan that seemed to capture her interest with its beauty. In a drunken moment, she places a kiss upon the statue that she felt drawn to and it comes to life. Dorien, the Spartan that was released from his statue state by a chance kiss, is drawn to this woman as never before. Feeling a threat of the parents murderer now aimed at Evangeline the love of his life Dorien vows to protect her no matter the cost.

My Thoughts: Kristine Cheney has you turning the page and wanting the next installment of the saga as soon as you finish. Her writing has you sharing the sorrow, passion, and rage while reading. You have it all in the first part of the saga. It comes together so beautifully and leaves you with a c
liffhanger of a ending and reaching for Spartans Heart Part Two.
