I loved this book. It was a bit of a tear jerker, especially Nicholas Thornhill's journal entries. Essentially is a story about two people always finding their way back to each other regardless of time.

This book was well written, good storyline and characters, however I had to take two star off as the hero was swearing so many times it was off putting! I can't understand why the author thought this would enhance the book? I will not be reading anymore of this authors books, not my style of romance.

Forever Mine by Monica Burns is a 2014 publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is mainly a historical time travel romance and is one of the best I have read in long while. This is not steampunk in the way you may be thinking, but it could fit there. For me the story was romantic to the nth degree, suspenseful, sad, mysterious and classic in many ways.

Before anything I want to say if you are snob or prude you won't enjoy this book.

I wanted to read this book again to see if I had an exaggerated reaction to it the first few times. I literally cried so hard my eyes are swollen and my nasal passages are blocked....It was a beautiful and cathartic feeling in the end.
I am not saying this is a perfect book....but it is a heart wrenchingly beautiful love story. If you are willing to humble yourself....I am sure you will love it. Give it a try.

Victoria Ashton is thrown back in time after an explosion at an art gallery and when she awakes everyone believes she is the Countess of Guildford who has been missing for three weeks. She looks just like the Countess and even speaks with a British accent. She knows she is not the Countess, figments of her past (the future) are there but just out of reach. However with no other ideas she plays the role despite the dislike and distrust of the Countess’s husband, Nicholas Thornhill, Earl of Guildf ...more

FOREVER MINE by Monica Burns is a unique Scottish Historical Victorian Time-Travel Romance with a bit of Paranormal element set in present time to 1897. Meet, Victoria Ashton, Countess of Guildford and Nicholas Thornhill, Earl of Guildford and a passion that lasts forever, literally.
Well written with a unique take of romance, time,passion, tragedy,danger and a powerful love story that spans generations and though time. Even, though the lies, betrayal, ill tempers, and the possibility of murder,

WEll all I can say is I love nicholas and victoria! :) There is so much tension in this book I did wonder how it was all going to come together at the end! It is so emotional (if your a crier beware) So I don't read many time travels because the believeability is sometimes hard to get your head around! this one just flows from how you get to the past to how you get back to the future and the love and sexual tension is there throughout! it has angst, happiness, fun and lovable characters that tak ...more

LOVED IT!! From the opening lines, I fell in love!

See? That bantering that comes naturally between siblings was showcased with such truth that you could see the sister think "score 1 for Nora". LOL. The relationships between all of the characters and how they interact with each other is fantastic and assists in making this an excellent read. Each of the characters have their own unique personality that will draw you into the world Monica has created. You'll find something to love i

This is not your typical historical romance where boy meets girl falls in love and lives “Happily Ever After”. This book is so much more than that. I had purchased this book in mid-December, along with quite a few others at the same time on the recommendation of a friend with no particular hurry to read it. When I marked it as a TBR, one of my friends on Goodreads asked me a question that piqued my curiosity, so I decided to go ahead and start it. I am so glad I did! This is a mar

The following review appeared here:

Nick Barrows has always been captivated by the portraits of the long dead Countess of Guilford, even to the point of only dating women who bear a resemblance to her. When Victoria Ashton walks in one day, looking to buy a painting, Nick is floored, because she is a dead ringer for the countess. The two of them immediately feel a pull of attraction and familiarity, when an explosion occurs, seriously injuring Victoria, and putting her into

It's been a while since I've read a historical romance. Like 11 years been a while. Mix in time travel with it and the last time I read a historical time travel romance novel was almost 30 years ago (that book will forever remain in my brain because how much I loved it).

It was easy to get pulled into this story fairly quickly and stay with it until the end. You get the bare minimum at the beginning of the story, enough to figure out the key players so t

One minute Victoria Ashton is in a art gallery and the next she is thrown back in time and being told that she is the Countess of Guildford. The people around her seem to think that she is losing her mind insisting that she is not the Countess. Knowing that she must have time to figure out how to get back home, she starts to play the role.

Nicholas Thornhill, Earl of Guildford, is happy to have his wife back after she had been missing for three weeks if only to verify that he didn't kill her. She

Nick Barrows is obsessed with a portrait of the Countess of Guilford. He feels a powerful connection as if he had known her intimately. When he sees Victoria Ashton in his shop, he's stunned. She looks exactly like his countess. Nick needs to talk with her, but an explosion changes everything. She thrown back in time to 1897 and is married to Nicholas Barrows. Will these two find their forever love? This story is wonderful. Monica Burns has written an emotionally intense story filled with well-w ...more

Amusement made her blue eyes sparkle as she smiled up at him. Her hand moved slightly until one beautiful breast was exposed to him. The air left his lungs then returned in a rush.
"You, sweet witch, are playing with fire," he whispered hoarsely.
"Perhaps I should help you put it out."

Wow, that ending was BRUTAL! I was bawling while reading Nicholas’ final journal entries. I had to take about 30 minutes to calm down before I could rate this book.

Monica, I’ve read thousands upon thousands of books and it’s very rare for me to hand out 5 stars but if I’m that emotionally invested to where I’m bawling and hurting for the past Nicholas, then you deserve it!

Forever Mine by Monica Burns

Wow. Just wow. This book blew me away. I was so deeply connected to this story that I read this book in lieu of doing anything for the past two days. No laundry, no evenings working, the dishes are piled up and my poor kid is wondering where Mommy went. I have had the privilege of reading some excellent books lately, but honestly this book blew me away. I have never read anything by Monica Burns before, but when this book showed up on Netgalley, I hoped it would be a
3.5/4 stars

The beginning was so confusing, part of me felt I was just reading to understand the mystery of how she got there and replaced Vickie. At the end, we finally learn why Vickie was killed, but the reason was dumb. And what was in that book anyway? That was never explained. Besides, the whole time travel reason was unnecessary because they both were living in the present during Ch. 1, and then right after they met, Victoria went back into the past and fell in love with Nicholas.

Normally I’m not a fan of time-travel novels, but I was launched into this one without warning and I’m glad I was! It was fantastic! The descriptions were enough to set the mood, the connections between the main characters were enough to make the time-traveling believable and real, and I loved the story line. It completely worked for me, and I loved this book!

I loved Forever Mine. It really ticked every box for me, and it's been so long since I've read such a well-written and thought out time travel romance. I love time travel romances (mostly because I like to imagine it happening to me) and this was a wonderful example of time travel done right.

"Isn't getting dressed defeating the purpose?" she said as she slowly rolled onto her side and trailed her fingers across his chest. "I mean you're just going to take off whatever I put on, right?"
Her fingers stirred a fire inside him as she dragged them down toward his stomach.With a life of its own, his cock stirred as she brushed her fingertips over his growing erection. Nicholas growled with need at her touch.
"You're deliberately trying to distract me."
"Is it working?" she murmured in a husky voice.”
