Clio is not only the muse of history, she has virtually lived her life through books. When a lightning strike sends her through space and time, Clio finds herself in the Old West with no way of getting home and none of her powers. Relying on her book learning is not working out like she’d hoped.
Ace Nevada is an unwilling sheriff who has spent the last year trying to get out of town. When a crazy woman lands in the horse trough in front of a saloon, he finds himself strangely attracted to her. He can’t help himself from sampling her lips or her incredibly lush body.
Clio learns how to be human and Ace remembers what it is to be human. They are two halves of the same whole. Mates. When Clio’s powers return, will their love pass the test of time?
Review: The daughter of Zeus, Clio, knew she shouldn’t have read that book but she just could not resist herself. She finds her self back in time in 1875 and with no powers. Clio doesn’t know how to get herself out of this situation and hopes her family will find out what happened to her soon. Ace Nevada is baffled at the sight in front of him. He thinks she’s from the whorehouse but when he starts to question her he decides to her to the boarding house since she has apparently hit her head pretty hard and lost her memory. When sparks start to fly between the pair can Clio tell Ace what really happen to her without him deeming her more crazy than he already thinks she is?
I couldn’t believe how much story was packed into this short read and it was so wonderful to read. I really enjoyed the Greek muse references and how it all tied into the story. I am a sucker for how authors describe scenery and Beth Williamson writes it perfectly, I felt like I was actually in that kitchen smelling those biscuits. The sex scenes between Clio and Ace were amazing, how they really could not me kept away from each other. I enjoyed the mystery behind it as far as whether or not she was really going to make it back home and if it was going to be with or without Ace. Ms. Williamson writes some awesome cowboys and this one is no exception, absolutely marvelous.
