I really enjoyed this book. It had several interesting twists with medieval knights, ghosts and reincarnation. The only thing that kept me from giving this five stars was the all too quick end. I really hate it when you have invested your time reading all the ups and downs of the story only to have it, literally, wrap up in one sentence. However, the characters were very likeable, the storyline was intriguing and thoughtful, it was jammed packed with emotion, nice sizzle and a great lead up to t [...]
What an I say about this book, lovedit! Love that transcend time, Basil and Guy are ghosts who reside at Badger Manor not far from the ruins of Ashenwyck castle, Basil's home in life. Basil and Guy decide to introduce themselves to Elinor the new owner , the manor being inherited by her from her Grandmother.Elinor and basil develop a love that transcends time and reincarnation , I do not want to give more details for fear it would allow me to spill to many spoilers . I found this story both hear [...]
The story opens with a battlefield scene Many knights lose their lives fighting for England and the Black Prince, against an overwhelming French force. Speed ahead in time: In the past, Elinor Hawthorne had sought to have ghostly experiences by visiting numerous "haunted" places to no avail. So it was quite a shock for Elinor to encounter two ghosts, Basil Manneville and Guy Guiscard, both medieval knights, in the home that she has just inherited from her grandmother. Her grandmother had never s [...]
Review by Bri: I’m all for paranormal novels. As an author of paranormal romance, reviewer, and all around lifetime reader, I love the genre as a whole. My usual reads are vampires, werewolves, witches, and fey. Mostly other worlds and the occasional set in modern times but with a whole other hierarchy in conjunction with present day.Aside from paranormal I’m a big historical romance reader, Highlander, knights, the Regency period are some of my favorites. Never that I can remember have I re [...]

Their love, however, beco [...]

What a wonderful book. I found myself completely and utterly immersed in the world created by Chris Karlsen. I had my emotions tried again and again, feeling elated at times, broken at others, then complete by the end.The characters were well developed. So much so, that I could hear their voices so clearly in my mind that I could have sworn Basil or Guy were in the same room with me. I fell in love with these characters. I bleed right along with them, felt their pain and sorrow, and finally thei [...]
Knights, reincarnation, sexy ghosts! My oh my! The story begins with two medieval knights who die in battle, their souls being unexceptionably intertwined. Skip to 1980. Elinor moves into her Grandmother house to find it occupied by the knight's ghosts. When a mortal falls in love with a ghost, it can't be good. Chris Karlsen is a debut author with a great voice! Her attention to detail and character development makes you not want to put it down and read through to the end. I visited her website [...]
What a wonderful book and the cover fits the story perfectly. I found myself completely and utterly immersed in the world created by Chris Karlsen. Her characters were well developed and I fell in love with all of them. This is a romantic story of a wonderful knight who is given a second chance of life and love. As a ghost he falls in love with Elinor who has inherited his ancestrial lands. It is a delightful tale with romance and humor. It was hard to put down. I highly recommend it and I plan [...]
Knights, reincarnation, sexy ghosts! Oh my! I really enjoyed this book. It had several interesting twists with medieval knights, ghosts and reincarnation. The characters were likable and the storyline was intriguing. It was packed with sizzle and emotion. Chris Karlsen has a great voice! Her attention to detail and character development makes you want to read the entire thing in one setting. The ending was too quick though.
Ms. Karlsen has developed a novel so complex it satisfies readers in almost any genre.When Elinor Hawthorne inherits a house in 1980’s England, she doesn’t expect to inherit the ghosts of two medieval knights as well. Basil and Guy are fiercely loyal to their country and every woman’s dream man.
I'm hooked. Ghost, medieval knight and time travel - all in one books made my lack of sleep worth it. This was an awesome book (Thanks again to my lovely Carolyn)
Paranormal Romance At the 30% mark, I was not emotionally connected to any of the characters and felt no compulsion to continue.Having both Basil and Guy hanging around was offputting to me. With two gorgeous hunks lying about, there is nothing definitive about Basil's character to show why Elinor would fall for him. I grew tired of the way Elinor placed Guy on a pedestal of chivalry. This is the man, erost, who admits to tupping (his word, not mine) anything in a skirt whilst alive, and who spi [...]
Let me start by saying that I am a fan of Chris'. I fell in love with her works when I read Golden Chariot maybe it was the subject or simply the way she handled her characters- whatever it was. I was sold, hook, line, and sinker.This book is completely different from those books. But that isn't a bad thing- it just shows that she has a good grasp on different subgenres within the romance genre.I am a huge paranormal fan, this book seems to mix a lot in a way that works. I must admit, I probably [...]
I really enjoyed Heroes Live Forever by Chris Karlsen. It starts out as a ghost story involving two medieval knights (I love all things medieval, soah) and teacher Elinor, who inherits her grandmother's house where the ghosts reside. The friendship between Elinor and Guy was fun, and the love between Elinor and Basil bittersweet. Loved all the references to the 70s, especially Guys' comment on the Bee Gees. I don't want to spoil anything for new readers, but I didn't expect the twist that took t [...]
This is one of those books that I ran across for .99 and thoughtwelllooks interesting, cheap enough, why notd I have to admit I was surprised. In one way this is the normal time travel story and in several other ways it takes off into a different direction. I have to admit I was a little worried about half way through when it seemed all the characters were dying off(Not a spoiler) I kept asking myself how this could possibly end well. I'm always the sucker for the happy ending.I have to admit, I [...]
Great story, a bit melancholy,fabulous characters and actually rather believable.This is a new author for me to try and I'm thrilled to bits that I have. I was thoroughly engrossed in the story and keen to discover just how where the author was going.Karlsen creates characters and stories I believe in and make me want to root for. I enjoyed the melancholy notes, too.
An unusual scenario for a romance, or at least, one in which I've yet to encounter in my reading adventures. I must admit that I do read a lot of historical fiction especially medieval and renaissance, so my experience may be limited. Those are my special passion, and this wonderful romance has just enough medieval tint to leave me happily swept away for the entirety. There is a very unique mishmash of romance genres in this romantic tale, from the contemporariness of its primary setting to its [...]
Wonderfully written!Heroes Live Forever was a nice change to all the contemporary romance novels I’ve been reading.I love all romance but I was in need of a change… This was it!Heroes Live Forever is about a woman who lives with two ghosts. These aren’t your normal ghosts but two medieval knights who died in battle. Their story is not like any other story I’ve read before. It’s fresh and interesting. Basil And Guy are two ghosts who can come haunt me anytime!There personalities are opp [...]
I went into this one not expecting much, and got a lot more than what I bargained for. It was quite entertaining, I loved the concept. I loved that it was well written and that I expanded my English vocabulary while reading it, it's the first time in a while that I've come accross words that I've never heard or seen before and I don't know the meaning of. As for the characters, I loved both versions of Elinor and Basil was quite the interesting dude. However, I'm a little bit more in love with G [...]
This is Book One of a boxed set. I am not a big fan of reincarnation where the person does not remember her/his previous lives. Loved the first part of the books but the second was not what I expected. Elinor was all but lost in the second part and the new setting just added to the disconnect from the previous story.
