Kiss Across Deserts: Vampire Time Travel Ménage Romance, (Kiss Across Time Book 4),  Tracy Cooper-Posey
Genre:  Erotica, Time travel, Fantasy/paranormal, Romance,
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews.
I’m really hooked into this series, its hot and sensual, erotic, but not one of those where the sex takes over the story. I need that balance, the decent storyline to enjoy a novel.
Years are passing, Taylor, Brody and Veris are married, they have three children now, and Alex has been a long time friend of theirs. The Queen however wants to know how they time travel and is pushing hard for an answer. To help  persuade the she means it she arranges for Brody to be framed in a drug bust, which has terrible consequences for him as we saw in the last book…part of his defence team is another lawyer and judge, Rafe. When he sees Alex something sparks between them, even though Alex has only ever had relationships with women. Its complicated too as Alex has been unsuccessfully pursuing human detective Sydney for a year now. She doesn’t date – we find out why later –  but through a series of events gets involved with both Alex and Rafe individually, and slides into a scene from her past.
Alex – I so feel for him, he’s suffering from the vampire ennui that often hits older ones. He envies what Taylor, Brody and Veris have, and also Rafe, a family that give them a sense of belonging and closeness. He’s lonely, been struggling with it for over a year now, and he’s been performing some dangerous experiments on himself in search of answers. I loved when he and Rafe got together and then…oh that was so so sad, and I really felt for him. Rafe too has a share of ups and downs in this book, and the time travel information brings them all into real danger. I did find Sydney’s actions a little odd after her years of deliberate isolation, staying away from men and relationships but it did lead to some real sadness, which I love to wallow in! I can’t see any other way either of getting the people in the place they needed to be. I love the time travel elements, and it builds on what has gone before, not throws in new things at the last moment. I hate when that happens, it seems a cop out. Even when Marit appears its in the context of being specially gifted that we already know.
Its another hot and erotic read, and I really enjoyed the distinct highs and lows in this book. I need that balance, and somehow when one or more characters are really feeling heartbroken, it makes it so much more meaningful when things work out. Marit too – she’s something special and I feel we’ll see more of her in future. The time travel mysteries get more complex, and working them out and seeing just why Brody & co insist on not altering the past is very thought provoking. Lots of “what if..”s spring to mind, but somehow the answers get brought in and I feel I mostly understand the complexities of it.
The ending to this part of the series is very edge of seat climatic, and once again makes for a perfect and sensual fantasy read. I’m looking forward to the next part.
Stars:  Five, a fabulous read .
