Immortal Desires is the first novel in Laura Eno’s fantasy series “The Well of Souls.” When I read fantasy or scientific fiction, I first want to find myself in a well-constructed alternate world. That means I don’t want to read a story where anything goes—where the author feels free to interject any kind of ad hoc magic or paranormality to advance the plot.

Immortal Desires easily passes that test. Two competing groups of immortals secretly inhabit our world, appearing to be as mortal as any oth

Deanna Cameron is a lost soul that Robert, one of the Guardians for The Well of Souls, has been tasked with recovering. He offers her a "job", which she flies out for and accepts. Arriving at his company she is sensed by another, younger guardian, under Robert. He, Ian, senses she is his lost soul mate and begs Robert to return her to his mortal self back in the 1500s. Where he could have a life and relationship with her.

However if she is sent back, how will she be received? After all his Clan M

This is a good book but I have read this some time ago from a different named author. Not sure if this is her under another name but had to ask for a refund, so do beware.

My imagination of sapphire brooch surrounded with rubies (I couldn't find ruby stone)

Love this vows....
Two hearts as one,
Two souls entwined,
We join again,
To walk the path before us,
For eternity and a day

It was a very fun read that I had a very hard time putting down. She knows how to tell a story that grabs you right in the heart. I read it in one sitting. Deanna and Ian were made for each other, they were pretty damn good! You should definitely read it!

I recommend this book and you can add it

Move over, Diana Gabaldon and Karen Marie Moning, and make room for Laura Eno! What a fantastic start to what I hope is a long running series. IMMORTAL DESIRES is one of those books that I just couldn't put down, and as soon as I was finished, I wanted more.

While this book was very much a romance, it had so many more elements that made it a great read: mystery, intrigue, feisty heroines and hot highlanders. From the strong characters to the engaging story line, this was a great read.

Laura Eno does not disappoint!!! This is the second book I have reviewed of hers for R2R and I have to say she is a favorite. I haven't read many historical novels, I wouldn't say I'm not a fan, I just haven't but she definitely has piqued my interest to this genre.

I loved the time travel for the sake of finding your true love. I really liked how Ian was remembering new memories as Deanna and his past self were making them. (view spoiler)

Immortal Desires by Laura Eno

Deanna Cameron's life has been turned upside down. While waiting to walk down the isle with the man she thought she would spend the rest of her life with, her maid-of-honor receives a text message. “Tell Deanna I'm sorry. Nick” For the next year she is going through the motions of her life. Just when she decides she needs a new start, she receives an email from the CEO of Light Street Corporation offering her a dream job in a new state. When she arrives she is in fo

I recommend this for any fan of KMM's Highlanders. There are a group of immortals who guard and transport the souls of the departed to the well to be recycled. Hundreds of years ago the group split in two and one of them corrupted some of the souls to be recycled. In this world there are soulmates and if you aren't with yours then your life is always lacking something. Deanna in modern day San Diego is one such soul.

Deanna Cameron is dumped on her wedding day. Afterwards she's hesitant to allow herself to fall in love again and she's tired of her life as it is. She wants a change. That change comes when Deanna is offered a job by Robert Thornton, CEO of Light Street Corporation. The offer seems too good to be true but she desperately needs a change so she goes for it.

Ian Mackay, a 16th century warrior, works with Robert (who is his mentor), and both are part of the Aeneas faction of immortals, those on the

This book was amazing!!! I'm still all teary-eyed from the ending and though I'm an emotional being… books usually don't call in the water works. It simply pulled at the heart strings and made me once more believe in soul mates, though not necessarily always in the form of a partner. But I digress.

Laura Eno pumped out another mystical work with this book and though I had a few reservations about the first book I read from her (still good, but not a favorite) this one blows all doubts I may have

Talk about time travel!

Immortal Desires is one great read.

I received the novel from Knights of the Round Table on Goodreads, in exchange for a review. This is the first time I have read Laura’s work, and I enjoyed it.

I picked a great day to start reading, the pouring rain, warm fire, and snacks kept my body happy, while my mind traversed time.

Thanks to Laura Eno for giving me the chance to read this. I wasn't sure what to expect and was very pleasantly surprised. The book intermingled different kinds of fiction into a well thought out story with a good pace. Time travel, if done right, is something I really enjoy. I must say that this was done right. The time shifts were clearly marked so there was never any doubt.
The main characters, Deanna and Ian, were both strong characters whose actions were believable and personalities were l

I have to be honest here. For some reason, when I bought this yesterday, I was expecting to read about more Vampire/Werewolf romance etc. How wrong could I be?

The story that unfolded was so much more than the usual 'Human/Immortal’ romance. Combining aspects of time travel, magic, folk lore, history and the supernatural, Laura Eno takes the reader on a journey from the present back to circa 1500's and the Scottish Highlands.

There is a certain depth and charm to the characters, and an intriguing

Original review is here:

Immortals guard and transport the souls of the departed to the Well of Souls to be recycled. Many centuries ago the group was separated in two and one of them corrupted some of the souls to be recycled. In this world the souls are eternal and always paired. Life without your soulmate is empty and lonely.

Deanna Cameron was going to the altar as a bride, just to find out that her groom dumped her, and all he left was a text message. S

At first, I was a little unsure as to whether or not this book would be a good read for me. I do, on occasion, read paranormal romance, but not often as the characters tend to lack depth. However, I found that did not hold true for this book.

The three main characters were very well developed. Not too much detail, not too little, just enough to make them come to life for the reader.

The book revolves around Deanna Cameron, Ian MacKay, and Robert (otherwise known as Kyndeyrn). Deanne is a mortal wo

Immortal Desires by Laura Eno was a great, fun, and appealing read. I must say that Eno is a dynamic and prolific writer, not only in regards to the amount that she writes but the variety of styles that she writes in. First I want to dispel any thoughts people might have that this book is any type of knock off of The Outlander Series. I mention this here as some people might quickly glance at the blurb and think this. It is so far from the truth to be laughable; the only realistic comparison is ...more

Two factions of Immortals fight for the human race, though at odds with each other. One serves Order, the other Chaos. At stake is the Tobar d’anamacha—the Well of Souls—and with it the pairing of soul mates.
Occasionally, humans are forced onto the battlefield. This is one of those stories. (leading paragraphs of Chapter One, Immortal Desires)

Immortal Desires is an absolutely fantastic read. I'm usually hesitant to read time travel novels, but once I read the blurb, I knew it'd be full of adventure and romance.

Immortal Desires is a paranormal romantic suspense by Laura Eno. Deanna Cameron is a modern 20th century woman. After being dumped at the altar, she takes a job at Light Street Corporation. The company, however, is not what it seems. Before long, she finds herself in a castle with a man named Ian Mackay. Sounds rather like a typical Romance. Not really, because now it's the year 1505, not 2012. And her very presence there could cause the end of Mackay clan and the end of Deanna's life.

Before I say anything, I would like to say "Thank U!" to Read2Review and to Ms. Eno for enabling me to review this book....
When I first started reading this book, it sort of felt like one of those Highlander/Historical Romance type novels with a Paranormal Twist. Normally, I'm turned off by Highlander-type Romances... Sad to say, but Historical Romances/Highlander-Type Romances are just not my cuppa..

But, after reading this book, I can truly say that this time it's different for me.. I enjoyed

I received this book to review as part of the Read 2 Review and I REALLY enjoyed it. I read it in about a day. Once I started I could not put it down.

The first few pages were a little difficult to follow because it was a new concept. Once I had the players in their roles, it was easy to follow and very enjoyable! I could not put it down.

Laura Eno does an amazing job of creating characters that you feel for and root for. I found myself crying at one point, even though I knew what was coming. I ju

I received this as part of a Goodreads group The Knights of the Round Table giveaway. I absolutely love Laura Eno's writing style. She is a great author. This story was hard to put down once I finally got a chance to start reading it.

I received this book as a R2R and it was a fun light fast read. It has been awhile since I have read a good romance. The story flowed well and the characters were very likable. I love time travel books and this book definitely hit the spot. I usually judge books on if I can read them in one sitting and can't put it down. I definitely was engaged with the story. Great job. Definitely recommended as a fun fast read or a good beach read. Thank you for the opportunity to read and reveiw.

I loved the timeless love story of soul mates Deanna Cameron and Ian Mackay. It was the love story that kept me enthralled. I would have liked to see more of the Druid and Immortals side of the story because at times I got lost. The romance was strong enough to carry me through. It may be that most readers already are familiar with the world of the Immortals, but I'm not one of them. I still enjoyed this book very much.

Feeling stuck in a rut, Deanna Cameron jumps at the opportunity for a new job in a different state. Not just any job, but a dream job traveling and reviewing vacation spots. When she is sent five hundred years into the past, all she wants to do is find a way home. Until she meets the gorgeous Highlander Lord, Ian Mackay. Ian believes her to be a spy, but he can't stop his growing feelings for her. Will Deanna destroy his clan or shatter his heart?
