Blurb: All the time in the world is still never enough. In the heart of London in 1349, an apothecary engages in a futile battle against the rising tide of death brought on by the Great Pestilence. For this man, however, the duties of his profession are accompanied by an even greater responsibility—find Henry and ensure he survives the worst of the epidemic sweeping the Western world.
Now if only Dr. Drake Stilson knew which Henry to save. As an employee of The Oracle Group, a military and scientific organization dedicated to correcting the damage done by people playing around with time travel, this is far from the first time Drake has been sent to a distant time and place and expected to do the impossible. This is the first time, though, that he’s felt as if the battle is lost before it even begins. Surrounded by fear and loss, Drake is on the verge of surrendering to the inevitable when disaster strikes.
Despite being partners in work and life, Jens Pakkala rarely gets to spend time with Drake. He would love to take his partner and walk away from The Oracle Group, but how can he ask a dedicated historian to give up the opportunity to live out his studies? Then Drake runs into trouble on his latest assignment and Jens’ world begins to crumble. Now he has to figure out how to get himself to the right place and time to save Drake and bring him safely home.
Review: This is a very unique type of story that I have not had the pleasure of reading before. I was pleased and, well, not so pleased with it. Although I have to admit that I did like most of the book. It is very entertaining and there is quite a bit of surprise and some suspense going on for the two sexy men. I liked the concept that this book gave and can say that I wished we had it going on. Let’s just say this year should be fixed. It is a very interesting plot and I was surprised to find that I had a bit more fun than I would have expected.
Drake has been brought into the Oracle Group. He is one of the top doctors in History one could say. Jen is the one who recruited him, but they have become a very hot couple. Sent back in time to fix the mistakes of time travelers is what they do. Drake is the one who goes into the past, whereas Jen is the one who keeps him focused. Sent back to the time of a plague has Jen scared to death. Not of the actual mission but of the fact they have no clue what they are looking for.
Now the story itself progressed pretty fast however it was missing quite a bit to make it a top rated story. I feel that it could have had more content, especially in the end. It felt like it just ended too fast and there are no signs of a continued story to get further into. Also you see when our sexy men meet, straight to sex and then into a relationship. There was no build-up, no development, were thrown into a story right off the bat. For me I wanted to see that build-up, that development, I also wanted to see a better ending then was given.
You do get a happily ever after but it just came off very rushed and I saw several sections that could have been expanded to make it a five heart review. Other than those issues I saw with it, the story is quite interesting and I did have fun reading it.
