Kiss Across Swords is the second book in the Time Crossed Loves series by Teal Ceagh. As in the first book, Kiss Across Time, we get to come along the journey through history with Brody, Taylor, and Veris. Their passionate love for each other has grown to a scorching level in this book. While Kiss Across Time gave a wonderful insight into the pasts of Brody and Veris, Kiss Across Swords goes even deeper into the emotional struggles behind the two lovers. We get an in-depth view of how they met and became lovers. Even more emotionally involved than the first book in the series, readers will experience racing hearts and fluttering stomachs as you turn the pages of this thrilling exploration of battle, self-loathing, trust, and a soul-shaking love that time cannot erase.
Taylor’s special birthday didn’t turn out how she’d hoped. After years of living a wonderful life sharing in a love with Brody and Veris, sharing their histories and their bed, she was ready to take the next step: she asks Veris to turn her. She wants to live forever as a vampire alongside them both. Veris doesn’t take to the request how she expected him to. He turns his back and walks out on Brody and Taylor. Afraid she’s lost him forever, she takes comfort in Brody’s arms.
Taylor and Brody are taken back to the time of the first crusades. Being used to these trips back in time Taylor and Brody simply wait for Veris to appear as he normally does and enjoy the trip together. However something isn’t quite right this time. Veris has no idea who they are and he is less than happy about the attempted seduction by Taylor, something that is just not done in that time period.
Something has gone terribly wrong. Somehow they have changed history on one of their previous trips back in time. Now they must figure out what went wrong and how to fix history or they just might go back to a future that doesn’t exist any longer, losing more than just Veris. Taylor and Brody must find a way to bring Veris back to them using ways that are acceptable in the time period in which they are trapped. Veris is non-too thrilled with their presumed lies about the future and attempts to lure him into their plans. Knowing they only have 4 days to fix their relationship, they risk changing history further in order to guarantee their future together.
