Review by Lilac
Elyesha, last surviving descendant of a line of powerful witches, finally finds the only man she’s ever loved, the man who deserted her countless years before. But Ben is torn between desire and despair when Elyesha eventually penetrates his protective retreat. He knows what she wants, but the price for their love is too high. At midnight, on the beach, a battle of wills and erotic seduction ensues as each confronts the other’s darkest fears.
In this quick read, Elyesha, the last descendant of a group of powerful witches struggles to make Ben realize that they are meant to be together. The two come from different backgrounds which separate and force them into an illicit relationship. Determined to protect Elyesha, Ben pushes her away forcing her to search for him for over 1000 years.
Despite its brevity, Foretaste of Forever is a complicated story about two people finding peace despite their differences and the time they have spent apart. Their relationship fascinated me and I wish more had been revealed or explained about their backgrounds and what went on while they were apart. I found parts of the story a bit confusing, but overall felt it was a good read.
