Product Description

Cupid's Conquests

Cupid decides something drastic is needed to help the once burned career-focused Raina open herself up to love. Breaking all the rules, he takes her back in time to medieval Scotland to meet the ultimate alpha male and rekindle her confidence in relationships. He doesn’t plan for them to fall in love, but even Cupid can't control the passion that ensues.

The 13th century was a treacherous time, and any alpha male in that era accumulated dangerous enemies. Will Raina survive long enough to find the love of her life? Will she want that love to be her Scottish Laird or the mystery man Cupid promised her back home?

 


Excerpt:

Raina felt her breath catch at his touch. His eyes shone like two jades as they wandered across her face more passionately than any embrace. She felt consumed by his stare. Part of her longed for him to look away and release her, while the other desired nothing more than to remain captive and free to follow his lead without thought or consequence. His warm breath wafted across her face like a cloud enclosing them in their own little world. Her own hand lifted, to gently touch the dimple peeking out on his cheek before brushing a lock of hair falling across his forehead back away from his eyes.

The contact seemed to release something in him. He transferred his hold from her neck to her hips. She couldn’t help but notice his powerful warrior hands easily spanned her waist, making her feel more feminine than ever. The breeze flowed around them, blowing the skirt of her thin chemise against his muscled legs. He pressed his lips together, never taking his eyes from hers.

She swallowed hard. Dear God, how was she supposed to think with him looking at her like that? She knew the dangers of beautiful men with women lined up to seek their beds. A warrior like this, away for months at battles, surely would seek the company of camp followers, or tavern wenches and the like. Did men of this time even dream of staying faithful to one woman? At the same time, Chris had assured her he hadn’t brought her here to fall in love. If she only had Tristan for a short time, did she really care about his morals or loyalty? Could she simply let herself go and enjoy a night in his arms?

Having made up her mind that she could, no one was more surprised than she herself when she turned her face at the moment he moved forward to kiss her, leaving his lips with just her cheek. His eyes, blazing only a moment before, turned to ice as he released her.

“Forgive me, My Lady.” He gave a slight bow, surely meant to mock her with his emphasis on the formal title. “I must have misunderstood.”

Raina opened her mouth to protest, only she had no idea what to say. She wanted him desperately. No woman with blood in her veins could resist such a male specimen as Tristan. And for some extraordinary reason he wanted her, boring plain workaholic Raina. Yet she stayed silent as he turned on his heels and walked away.

With a sigh, Raina started to turn her gaze back to the stars when she noticed Chris standing on the wall-walk sadly shaking his head in disappointment.

  1. Loved it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Oct 2014

    It's been a while since I've read a time travel romance, but the author pulled me in from the very beginning. And what isn't to love about a Highland Laird? The story was well-paced and the characters were great. I see myself reading this one again in the future.


  2. Awesome story! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th May 2014

    If you're unsure about the Cupid premise, don't be. This was a frickin' great book! I love it when I can't put a story down and this was such an interesting story I kept turning the pages, devouring the story in one sitting. In fact, the only thing I have to criticize is that it was too short! I would've loved to have more time with Raina and Tristan. Sure, there were certain issues like I wanted to know what happened to her first love to make her so distrustful of love, and I would've liked for Tristan to learn she wasn't from his time, but the story was written so beautifully that I really didn't mind those oversites. The author was well versed in her history, and I enjoyed learning about a time I knew nothing about. Many time travels put in the same old place but I really liked reading about the Norsemen trying to invade Scotland, and she wrote it in a way that wasn't boring! This is how you learn history. Fans of Diana Gabaldon will love this book, but if you're like me and never read her stuff, you'll still love this book because who doesn't love a hot Scotsman?


  3. Sizzling Hot Book Reviews 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2014

    Wrong Time for Love by Lola Drake was a delightful little romp through time. I sat down to start the book and found myself finishing it in one setting, smiling throughout reading.

    Raina is a modern woman with the typical problems most career women face today. She has spent so much time focusing on first her education, and then her career, that she has completely neglected her love live. It’s during a discussion with a co-worker Chris about her experiences with weak men that she expresses a desire to travel to a different time and place.

    What Raina doesn’t realize is that Chris is actually Cupid who is trying to prove to Zeus that true love still exists. Before Raina realizes it, Cupid whisks her away to 13th century Scotland. Raina found herself in the middle of the raid. She is rescued by the handsome Laird Tristan. Tristan offers to take Raina and Chris to the local monastery. Not surprisingly, Raina and Tristan fall in love during the journey.

    Ms. Drake certainly provided us with the ultimate alpha male in Tristan. The chemistry between the two sizzled from the pages. Their growing relationship was believable and enjoyable to follow. It was interesting to watch a modern woman try to work her way through the constraints of the past.

    I was impressed with the obvious research that Ms. Drake did in order to accurately portray medieval Scotland. The details she included added authenticity to the book that kept me riveted from the moment Raina traveled through time.

    If you’re looking for an easy, quick escape from your daily grind, then I suggest you pick up Wrong Time for Love. It will provide you a little bit of fun and enjoyment in your day.


  4. The TBR Pile 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Mar 2014

    Raina and Tristan played off each other nicely and I enjoyed watching them hesitantly grow toward one another. The paranormal aspect wasn't overdone at all. Cupid couldn't just wave his hand and magically do anything (he had to talk Father Time into sending him and Raina back to the past), nor were either of the protagonists anything unnatural (no vamps, etc, so don't let the "paranormal" genre throw you off).
