About the book:

      A single kiss can change more than one life…or two.
      Taylor Yates is fired for insisting the 5th Century Arthurian poet, Inigo Domhnall, existed. When she hears Domhnall’s lyrics in a death metal song, she engineers a meeting with lead singer, Brody Gallagher. An unintended kiss sends them spinning back to the poet’s time, when Saxons were pillaging King Arthur’s Britain.
      Brody’s all for kissing her again. More, he wants her to kiss his friend and lover, Veris, to see what will happen. When Veris’ kiss sends them back to the time of the Vikings neither man is willing to let Taylor simply walk out of their lives.
      But Brody and Veris are more than lovers and sexual playmates, as Taylor learns when they investigate the kisses that send them across time. The secrets they share have the power to completely alter her life.

What VampBards talking about:

      This is the paranormal version of The Time Traveler’s Wife…except everyone can travel, and it happens DURING SEX!!!!  How freakin’ cool is that?!?!  HEAT INDEX:  4.75 – Holy Smokin’ Hotness! **fans self**
      This is gonna be a down-n-dirty review, my friends.  With only 162 pages, Kiss Across Time packs a powerful punch.  World-building, character-building, and the construction of powerful and intricate relationships are carefully woven into the novella.  Each fact, detail, sensory impression are purposeful and meant to tantalize the reader.  And tantalize, Ms. Cooper-Posey did.
      I’m pretty sure that the hot rockstar vamp and his partner-in-immortality were two of the most intuitive characters I’ve read in a long time.  Brody and Veris are magnetic personalities.  I was simply drawn to them, and cannot wait to read more about them!  With Arthurian, Saxon and Viking references, the historical aspect wasn’t over-done, and greatly added to my enjoyment of the title (because I’m a bit of a Viking, Saxon and Arthurian legend geek, naturally).
      Taylor, the professor-next-door that was canned from her university position before being granted tenure because she dared to think differently.  I was really intrigued by the premise of Taylor’s thesis, and would LOVE to spend time hanging out with someone like her… except I’d want to discuss the literature aspect versus the historical aspect.  Seemed like she’d be the type that would be able to discuss both.  One thing that concerned me about Taylor was the fact that she seemed content to be ‘bought out’ of her theory… you’ll understand when you get to that part of the story.
      Menage.  Smokin’ HOTTTT!  What I really enjoyed about this trio was the fact that Brody and Veris had an existing relationship, and Taylor appeared to fit seamlessly into what appeared to be a love and respect-filled pairing.  It looked like they’d been traveling through time simply waiting for Taylor to arrive.  Readers will love the time traveling, as well as what it represents for the trio.
      I’m eager to read subsequent titles in Ms. Cooper-Posey’s Kiss Across Time series.  Book 2, Kiss Across Swords is available June 1, and a third title, Kiss Across Chains is slated for July 1.  Sounds like I’ve got myself at least two fabulous titles to enjoy in the summer sun!
