New England 1953. A forty year old virgin is swept off her feet by a mysterious man who leads her into a life she could never have imagined.

Mature romance - Trying to find the right level of sex/romance and the right level of explicit detail.

I am committed to doing a through critique of anything Adult/Romantic.

More than 3,000 years ago, a demigoddess was created in the realm of the Sumerian gods. She was pulled from the womb of a great warrior and given powerful gifts from Ishtar, herself, the goddess of passion, love, and war. Her function was to act as both a prophet to the goddess and protector of the pantheon. It was prophesized that there would come a time, more than once, when she would walk among the Earth and save humankind from itself.

Daniel is a Holocaust survivor who doesn't even belong in this century. When he was young, he was dying. His widowed mother and two best friends had scraped together enough money to bring him to Germany in search of a mythological healing spring that would make him healthy. Because they were Jewish, they were turned away. Then they were caught in the crosshairs of Kristallnacht. His family and friends were slaughtered. He was experimented on and tortured in unspeakable ways. Now he's stuck in 2011, a glorified, corporate-funded superhero with post-traumatic stress, for whom the War was only a few years ago.

They've met before. They’ve fallen in love before. Neither of them remembers this. And then events from both their very different pasts collide and threaten the world.
