Once again Ms. Petrova has captivated me with her thought provoking and well written prose. This is actually the first book in the series even though it released after the second book, Runes. The premise of immortals walking the earth for decades, if not centuries, until they experience the 'Calling' of their mate is unique. In this book, Ms. Petrova examines the issues of sin, guilt, forgiveness and love in its various forms. Lillian is the epitome of innocence, possessing an unlimited capacity ...more

I wish I could say that I'm totally aroused with Trefoil by Em Petrova, but I honestly can't, cuz instead of making me high, the book kinda creeps me out. I have no idea why. But despite of being an erotica, it chilled me to the bone. Perhaps... it's because of the storyline involving cemeteries and paranormal stuff and whatnot.

It's a very original and interesting read, and I enjoyed it neverthele

Recommends it for: 18 and over; sexual content
Trefoil by Em Petrova is a heart-wrenching with tale with sensual undertones. Lillian LeClair has Called to Nathan Halbrook, her immortal soul mate, in her dreams though she already has an immortal husband. From the beginning, Lillian is torn between two men. John, the debonair, ritzy man she is currently married to - and loves - and her soul mate, Nathan who is a handsome, reclusive sculptor.

Compelled by Lillian's Call, Nathan trails across California determined to make Lillian his even though

I really enjoyed this book. The dynamic of the three way relationship was handled in a innovative way. I liked how the story played out and that we were kept wondering if he really did do what was inferred when Nate did an internet search on her first husband. My only gripe is some of the language used during the sex scenes is very 1970's porn movie so it dropped a mark from 5 to 4 stars, did it didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the story.
