State of Grace by Elizabeth Davies (Resurrection #1)

Grace came home to die. What she didn’t know was that coming home would also give her a chance to live a lifetime of love in her dreams. State of Grace by Elizabeth Davies defies genre lines, part historical romance, part time travel and part paranormal romance.

Was it the drugs that induced Grace’s lifelike dreams? Follow Grace as she goes back hundreds of years only to meet a handsome, hulk of a man, Roman. They have nothing in common, except that they each are creatures of fairytales and fantasies. Grace is a time traveling woman whose life is nearing its end as the tumor grows in her brain. Roman is a vampire, addicted to blood and will probably life forever.

Imagine trying to communicate in modern day language with that of almost a thousand years ago! Still there is something special between these two that brings them together out of all the people throughout time. I fell in love with Grace’s attitude, her strength, her wit and the acceptance of what life has dealt her. Alone in a strange time and place, I loved how she refused to stand down to a man! Can you imagine the culture shock that Roman felt? This mere human woman seemed to leave him a little lost and more vulnerable than his species was used to. Together they found love, the joy of sexual expression and the feeling of being complete, once again.

Elizabeth Davies has written a beautiful, yet fun tale of love, and adventure for a woman who has little left to face in this lifetime. Were these lifelike dreams real or were they a gift from the Fate that has dealt her her death sentence. Could Roman be more than a dream to fulfill her need for love? Fabulous characters, atmosphere and just the right touches of humor and heat. Seriously, can you imagine living in a world where bathing happened occasionally, indoor plumbing was non-existent and food came to the table still on the hoof? How about trying to communicate your needs regarding basic bodily functions when there is a communication barrier?
Ms Davies built a tale that could have dwelt on death, but instead used fantasy to expand on the possibilities in life... and she did so while being thoroughly entertaining! Loved it!

I received this copy from Elizabeth Davies in exchange for my honest review.
