“It was impossible they had met before – of that she was certain. Yet his hold on her was undisputable, an irrational pull to the utmost recesses of her soul.”

Vivienne du Lac has everything she could wish for – a normal, peaceful life, a good job, cushy nest egg, and a semi-social nightlife. The only problem? She’s clueless to being the reincarnation of the Lady of the Lake, mythical sorceress from King Arthur's time, and Merlin's apprentice.

Sebastien Dubois is the guy you wouldn’t take home to mom and dad. He’s the one you jump off on a motorcycle with, to ride into the sunset. The sexual chemistry between them is sizzling from the start – but there’s more to the tall, dark and handsome stranger. When a magical past tumbles into her orderly reality, he is Vivienne’s only hope at survival.

Caught between darkness and light, a battle she has no intention to fight – let alone the knowledge to win – Vivienne quickly finds out not even closest allies can be trusted.

Can she look within and access powers from long past, become the enchantress Merlin meant her to be… Or will she lose it all over love, for Sebastien’s salvation? This is a battle between good and evil you don’t want to miss.

 
Avalon Dreams by Alexa Whitewolf
Avalon DreamsSettle back and prepare to savor and enjoy a tale of lost love through the ages, the magic of Merlin and Arthurian times as the centuries unfold and glimpses of the past and present meld together. Alexa Whitewolf’s Avalon Dreams begins when a young woman in France begins to have fugue states or feels she is seeing events via Déjà vu. According to Vivienne, she is being transported back to Arthurian times and into the company of a man with whom she has a unique and mystical bond and attraction. There is more to Sebastian then meets the eye, as Vivienne will soon learn as she sees him in her present day world.

Vivienne is also more than a woman with lifelike dreams, she has powerful magic and there are those out to possess or destroy her for it. Is it possible she is part of the past? Could the tales of Merlin be true? People are not as they seem and evil is closer than she thinks. As her heart pulls her soul to Sebastian, his manner runs hot and cold. Could it be he has his own secrets of the past?

As the lines between the past and present begin to blur, the ultimate battle between good and evil is looming ahead, will Sebastian prove he IS her own Knight in Shining Armor? Only unlocking her hidden memories will make Vivienne strong enough to face whatever comes. Is she ready to take that giant leap of faith into a world she thought to be a fantasy? Past, present and even the future all come down to Vivienne’s faith and strength. Will she believe in a love through the ages that was meant to be? Will she believe in herself and the magic she possesses?

Alexa Whitewolf has turned over every detail and blended them into an atmosphere that comes to life as one contemporary woman discovers the truth of her past lives and the love that has stood the test of time. Mystery, dark magic and brilliant characters from both the past and present come to life in a wonderful fantasy that was written to be savored and lived within. This is NOT a fast read, this is a journey through the pages. Enjoy the slower moments, get ready for the action and believe in the magic of an author's words!

I received this copy from Alexa Whitewolf in exchange for my honest review.

    1. Hey Miranda! It really isn't like Outlander, but I have to say the fantasy/magic aspect makes it unique!
