    1. Very good and its free a bonus! Now if only Ms Tachna would think about continuing this story for more adventures with Russ and Quentus I can see them working well together. I loved their sparring and the relationship was a fascinating mix of sexy and tender. Its an interesting time travel romance that could have ended tragically for me, so I am happy to say the conclusion was very satisfying its a wonderful story.


    2. 3.5 stars!I can't remember exactly how this book ended up on my TBR - it has very likely been for a challenge. I am usually not a big fan of time travel stories, but I have to admit that Chateau d'éternité has been a very nice surprise. When Russ gets a mysterious invitation to a castle in France, he doesn't know that his life is about to change forever. He is able to travel in time and on one of his first experiments with time travelling he end up in the Roman word and meets Quentus Maximus, [...]


    3. 2.5 stars As I started reading this book I thought it was a remake of “Austenland”, but very soon it became clear I was wrong. This is simply a different approach of “The Time Traveler’s Wife”. The protagonist, Russ, has a DNA mutation that allows him to travel in time. The mutation would expose its-self at his thirty-five birthday by sending him through time uncontrollably, hadn’t other travelers found out about it before that time came. The Chateau d’Eternite is a castle, own by [...]




    4. 4 StarsI found this to be a very engaging story of self-discovery and love, set in a journey back in time to the city of Nemausus in Roman Gaul. This story was expanded from an original short.Russ lives in modern day Tucson and although he enjoys his career as a historian, he leads a fairly lackluster life. When he receives a letter of invitation to be a guest at a French castle, he accepts – and thus starts a journey he could never have foreseen.When Russ arrives in France at the Chateau d’ [...]


    5. When I found this e-book being offered for free, I was excited. I already liked the author's writing, and the blurb on this promised m/m D/s romance with time travel to Roman Gaul, and, hey, these are a few of my favorite things, right? Unfortunately, the execution was not quite as good as I could have hoped. I did like the time travel and the overall plot. The promised D/s turned out to be really more of the stereotypical alpha-male romance hero (this is a different thing from D/s, although I'm [...]


    6. What a lovely little story! A time traveling story involving Russ (from Tucson Arizona) and his Roman centurion, Quentus.Here's a little background. It is discovered that Russ is one of a select few that has a gene that permits him to travel through time. He is invited to Chateau d'eternite to explore his abilities. On one of his trips to the Gaul region of France (that is under the control of the Roman Empire), Russ falls in love with a high ranking Roman centurion, Quentus. After a brief stay, [...]


    7. Time travel stories are often difficult to read without finding holes in the logic, so I can’t imagine how hard it must be to write them. I’m not sure you can call it world building when developing the rules and guidelines for time travel, so let’s call it creating a timeline construct, for want of a better phrase. Ariel Tachna has done a beautiful job of doing this in her book CHATEAU D’ETERNITE.There are so many what-ifs and Ms Tachna does not neatly tie up the story with a bow. Russ [...]


    8. Time travel with a failed attempt at a D/s dynamic, or something like it. Everything was going nice and entertaining, a decently plotted time travel story with some possibly interesting characters, until the MC meets his dominant love interest in Roman empire times and out comes the "chick with a dick." You could have replaced Russ with Rose, tweaked a couple details in the sex scenes and voila! M/F time-travel romance. One good thing: it was free at Dreamspinner Press. It was okay, but that's a [...]


    9. I don't normally like time travel stories but I found myself drawn into this one. Very engaging story with interesting characters and possible story lines, but just when I was getting into this story it ended and left me with questions. A great read though but I think a sequel is needed.




    10. 4.5 statsAlthough I found it a little hard to get into at first, once Russ goes back in time I loved it. I loved seeing both main characters grow. I also loved the setting and how the author addressed some of the difficulties in time travel. I would have loved to see the rest of their life together, but had to be satisfied with the epilogue :)

    12. “Love knows no boundaries and no distance; miles and obstacles mean absolutely nothing in the face of love.”~ unknownIf you were unsatisfied with your present life and had the ability to travel through time searching for a more fulfilling existence, would you chance it? When Russ of Ariel Tachna's book 'Cha^teau d’Eternite´' discovers that he has the ability to travel through time, he embraces the idea. Being a student of history, he thinks that it will be interesting to visit different p [...]


    13. Ugh, I'm having a tough time with this one!For instance, the premise of Russ' time travelling abilities and how the Chateau d'Eternité was able to find him in the first place was laughable. It actually made me want to give up on the book. I mean, just how would an organization with no apparent funding be able to screen the entire human population in search of people who had this ability? And considering genetic screenings are not part of a regular medical check up, in which manner would they be [...]


    14. I really enjoyed this book. The time travel bit wasn't explained too well, and wasn't really believable, but that didn't really matter because the focus is on Russ during the Roman period rather than him flitting through time. The relationship between Quentus and Russ/Rastus was nice because there is a realistic issue about social status and how Quentus acts towards Russ. This is something that is quite often ignored in historical books - that people behaved differently, and we have no right to [...]


    15. Château d’Eternité is a unique take on a time travel romance. I recommend this to anyone looking for a historical romance with a twist. This book combines intriguing historical drama, time travel and erotic romance. Russ and Quentus are good characters with a lot of personality. This story is immediately engaging as Russ explores his gift and figures out how to adapt to life in Nemausus.I have a couple of issues with this book. I would prefer more detail in the way time traveling is explaine [...]


    16. 1.5 starsThis was a disappointment. What caught my eye was this line in the blurb: "Russ is shocked by his reaction to Quentus’s dominant nature." Unfortunately, I felt disconnected from the story and the characters, and felt no heat between the two. There was no BDSM but instead a typical, arrogant, domineering alpha male. The pace was fast, the world-building lazy, and the actions of the characters were illogical and unrealistic. I had to roll my eyes at yet another "big, strong, domineering [...]


    17. Interesting premise in the Chateau and its inhabitants. I found that part more fun than the romance, which seemed to be built strictly on fabulously hot sex and a commanding yet endearing personality. Now that being said, (view spoiler)[I'm glad the MC set himself up for a year to test the waters, and didn't assume it was automatically HEA. This ending worked well for the character and the short time frame the men knew each other. (hide spoiler)]. I'm curious to read about other travelers.


    18. I really enjoyed this book. It's unique, and the time travel element creatively done. It's also a quick read because it's enjoyable and engaging. The tension and mystery is well written, too. As an academic, I found it a little annoying that there are errors in the writing of the main character as a professor and how that operates. Most people won't know or care, and it won't detract from the story. It just did for me a little. Still, this was a fun read!


    19. Review posted first at Joyfully Jay and ScatteredThoughtsandRogueWordsRating: 3.75 stars out of 5Expanded version of the short story published earlier. Lovely details in the Roman setting help the reader visual the events and characters in that time period. The MC's nonchalance about time travel made it hard for me to fully connect with his character.For my full review visit, wp/p220KL-1c5


    20. A sexy, enchanting book. The author warns the reader (through the MC) in the beginning of the book that you just have to take some things on faith and not try to understand them. The time travel in this book is explained but not plausible - you just have to accept it. If you can do that, then it's a "sexy, enchanting book."


    21. I really enjoyed the book, but I must admit I am disappointed in the ending/epilogue. (view spoiler)[ I didn't want to know that MC's had only 15 or 20 years together. Also, I have my doubts if the situation with the son was resolved. I liked the book a lot, but now I feel kind of sad (hide spoiler)] I still recommend it though.


    22. Over all a good book. It was a good book and I enjoyed the detail about the time travel bits and it’s a good first book in a set. The only problem I had was that the events set during the Roman times, the guy going back and meeting someone aka the reason I read it, is only about the half the book and seemed a bit rushed and stops just when it got interesting. But over all an good book.


    23. A very nice M/M romance story about someone who travels into the past and falls in love there. Not a new concept, but well written and interesting. Especially since I love everything that has to do with time travel. Contains graphic sex scenes


    24. Book started slow and ended (abruptly) just as I was becoming invested in the MC and plot. The premise of the book is rather interesting, so I hope there's a continuation.Not bad for a free read from Dreamspinner's website. Thank you!


    25. I loved the story but I found the ending a bit vague and unsatisfactory (about Russ and Quentus) thus dropping to 3.5 stars from 4.5.
