    Good thing that was a fast read. And free. What a waste of a good story line. I didn't connect with the characters at all. Sarah was ridiculous, naive, and sometimes just an idiot. I REALLY wanted to like this story. It could've been SO much better, but it felt rushed and smushed together. The only thing I loved was Victor. Frank was annoying and her work crew were just as irritating, except Beth. Ugh. I'm so disappointed and sad, I really wanted to like this. Good thing that was a fast read. And free.

Eternal Vows is not the most innovative and fresh concept books that you may come across as there is nothing new about the story. A woman in search of her long lost sister accidently stumbles upon a portal to another dimension. Getting married to a powerful, immortal and gorgeous King clearly on a case of mistaken identity. Escaping from the clutches of a forced marriage while trying to fight down her undeniable attraction to her husband, slipping on and ancient ring that connects her to him does not help . Ofcourse having a band of enemy immortals on her trail trying to hunt her down once and for all is not exactly a walk in the park. But being married to an immortal has its advantages. For one you also get to be an immortal and get entrusted with all this super powers and mind tricks that you cannot control but may come in handy when you are running for your life. Yes, ETERNAL VOWS has it all and manages to keep it interesting the whole time even though the formula is a little hand me down. But I am not complaining as the saying goes via trita via truta "a frequented path is a reliable path" and this frequented path does deserve attention. The writing is engaging and there are a lot of witty banter, funny dialogues and a number of references to the pop culture that you feel like laughing inspite of yourself. Eventhough they are inches away from death the heroine manages to sprout atlest one sentence that is sure to lighten the mood and that is one of the good things about this book. The heroine Sarah is funny and stubborn, there is no other way to define her and the hero, who doesn't like an immortal, gorgeous control freak. If anything, the popularity of the Twilight series has taught us "Never to underestimate the power of a gorgeous immortal no matter how controlling he is". So there you have it, Eternal Vows is a book to watch out for if you are looking for pure entertainment and a good laugh.

    I almost stopped reading this a few times. Between poor word choices and major problems suspending my disbelief, I really didn't enjoy it much. The premise should have suited me down to a 'T,' but in the end, the meat of the story wasn't there. It rambled and made attempts at humor and the characters were all rather flat.

On yet another investigative mission, Sarah and her researcher team arrive at the scene where her sister was last seen. But something's different this time. They hear strange noises; something's watching them. Not knowing what's going on, Sarah enters the cave and steps through a portal in time. Suddenly, she finds herself in a different world, followed by deadly giants who almost kill her...until she's saved by a mysterious immortal king. Victor claims to know who she is, and even though he despises her for no apparent reason, he wants to make her his. Now Sarah must do everything in her power to stay alive...even if it means marrying the enemy who could find out she's not who he thinks she is... I loved this book. The writing is fantastic. The story building isn't your typical paranormal romance, but includes time travel and mystery elements as Sarah has to find out what really happened to her sister while trying to save her own life. Sarah's such a lovable heroine who cares about others while Victor's strong and determined to crush his enemies and keep the woman he desires. The attraction between the two was sizzling hot. There were quite a few twists and turns I didn't see coming, and the ending left me eager to pick up the next book. All in all, a really good book I'd recommend to readers of paranormal fiction who enjoy a bit of romance, humor and mystery.

    This book is not perfect and it has some flaws, but I really enjoyed it! The situation of a woman travelling through a portal into another time or dimension is already well known, but I definitely enjoyed that this time the main character isn't alone in that other dimension. She has her friends with her to help her and to accompany her on this journey. Also she quickly finds allies in that new world, though I must admit that I find it somewhat hard to believe that people from a medieval world wou This book is not perfect and it has some flaws, but I really enjoyed it!

Also she quickly finds allies in that new world, though I must admit that I find it somewhat hard to believe that people from a medieval world would trust a complete stranger that fast and would risk their lifes to help her escape from the king. Another flaw I see in this book is Sarah's behaviour. I think she is naive and stubborn. She doesn't listen to people who have clearly more knowledge of that world. She accepts her powers and the creatures in that world without a second thought, but does not accept any help. She gets her friends and herself into trouble with that behaviour, but it doesn't seem to bother her. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the story very much. Since this book is only the first one in a series I am sure that there is a lot of potential to explore the world more and to develop the characters. So I hope that Sarah will grow and get rid of her stubbornness.

Victor-- Oh, hottie Victor I would let you ravage me like a medival king ANYDAY! Sarah was a strong, witty, and actual smart heroine! I am in awe of how awesome she was! The characters all came to life and popped out from the page and made me care deeply for all of them. If you haven't grabbed a copy of this yet, you must.

Her plan to wed and run with some outside help, turns out to be much more difficult than she could have ever expected. Not only is her new husband chasing after her, others are too... *** The summary of Eternal Vows seems very promising for a nice little read, some unlikely romance in a mysterious setting and a female protagonist turned accidental hero that has to figure her place in this new setting out. Unfortunately, as it turns out, that really was all just wishful thinking on my part. Sarah Larker, who, although we are told that she is oh so lovely, caring and likeable, turns out to be a naìve and flighty character with a hang for dramatics. As much as I tried (and I really did) I just couldn't find it in me to connect with her, and least of all like her. Actually, none of the characters introduced enticed any kind of redeeming quality. The only maybe-exception being King Viktor, the Immortal, but even so, his appearances were short and in between. Mostly, and this can be applied also for Sarah and Frank, Sarah's kinda-ex-but-kinda-not, who completes the love-triangle, are flat any annoying. It's not only the bland characters that bothered me, though. There are also these awful dialogues which, I'm sure, were meant to be as funny-silly-cute, as the characters themselves were supposed to come across as, but really, really didn't. For instance, Frank, who seemed unable to open his mouth and not say something cheesy and all-around improper considering the situations they happened to find themselves in. His attempts at flirting are plump and bothersome, but constant. Generally, most of the sutuations they found themselves in were filled with dialoges that didn't quite match the setting/situation. Then there is the part where the story is set in a land stuck in some Medieval times, but except for a few occasions, none of the locals seem to be that bothered by the appearance, behavior or language of the foreigners. Foreigners, who can't really be bothered investing too much effort into blending in and finding cover. Every now and then, someone will ask what a certain word means, but it happens so randomly, it feels like the author herself forgot about the setting. Everything just seems too raw and too much of a mess, more like a first draft than a finished story. There are several different ideas and aspects of the story, that would have actually worked out well, had more time and thought been put into the execution and writing! Really, the whole part about the Immortals, the portal and that connection formed through the ring, make for a good story, but as it was displayed in this book (and I can only judge from this book alone) all the good ideas drown in this wild mess of everything I mentioned above. Whether you write Fantasy or not, a certain amount of sense for characters, settings, actions, situations and dialogues, is needed. I'm not intending to sound mean to the author or anything here, I'm just very saddened and disappointed to see the good ideas displayed having gone to waste. 1,5 stars.

Sarah larker finds herself married to a possessive king whilst getting herself tangled in a war between immortal kings. From the moment i read the blurb, i thought... WOW.AWESOME.COOL The second you read this blurb is the second you realize that nothing can really go wrong with this book: I mean who doesn't want a powerful king to be their husband? Think of all the couture dresses, Prada, Gucci and angry sex (nothing can go wrong with angry sex). Well unfortunately this king is an over a century years old immortal being and the wedding ring he gives to Sarah, just happened to turn her into an immortal. So Sarah is on the run with Mr-royal-pain-in-the-a**, a council of immortal rulers and another enemy kingdom hot on her trail. Will Sarah survive with nothing but her smart mouth, her big fat wedding ring, her ex-boyfriend Frank and a tranquilizer? This a very short story and despite its interesting and semi-original plot, the story manages to dive into intricate subplot to enhance the story with ease. The transition and contrast between Sarah's modern lifestyle and the fantasy aspect of the story was hilarious and quite realistic. And yes the notorious: "Is this a film?" speech or "Where are the cameras?" monologue are provided. Despite having to be in dire situations, Sarah and Frank brings humour in abundance. All the pop cultural references and snarky remarks made me laugh with tears. They are funny and quirky, and loosened the tension between the readers and the book. There is a slight love triangle and a perfect a hue of fiery/hot/passionate scenes that involves our egotistical immortal king. Victor is someone we didn't get a lot of and I guess i wouldn't mind seeing more of him. Sarah has something in her that made her my new best friend. And Frank can just....he can just stay with me because every time he talks, he enlightens the most suffocating environment. [spoilers removed] Thumbs up to Christina Peebles. You my dear have created a story that is exciting and fresh.

Sarah is on the hunt to prove Bigfoot exists. Unfortunately, a former boyfriend, Frank is a journalist/ reporter who sets out to debunk every case she and her team investigate. When Sarah and her team believe they finally have proof of Bigfoot's existence, Frank shows up once again. She thinks the creature is hiding out in the cave her sister, Liz went missing from years prior. Frank and Sarah enter the cave only to realize it is a portal to a different world. Once they are on the side, Sarah is mistaken for a missing princess. She meets Prince Victor who informs her of his plans to marry her. Sarah and Frank concoct a plan to obtain the wedding ring that is needed to return them to their realm. However, the only way for her to get it is to truly marry Victor. Little does Sarah know but the wedding ceremony and kiss she and Victor share will be enough to bind them together for life. While I did enjoy this book somewhat, I also had problems with Sarah and Victor's attraction towards one another. Quite honestly I didn't really care about either of them because the author did not really write any scenes with them together long enough to develop any chemistry. Much of the book is spent describing Sarah's various brushes with enemy after enemy and not enough time was invested in relationship building. The plot had so much potential but began to fall apart with each new creature introduced or special ability Sarah develops. At times I felt as if I was reading a YA book rather than and adult read. Read this one for yourself and decide. It is currently being offered for free on Amazon.com.

Chrissy Peebles has a wonderful flowing writing style that infuses emotion with quick witted humour. With each turn of a page, she draws you into the story as Sarah tries to deal with the perilous and emotional situations that fate has thrown her into. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading the next book in The Ruby Ring Saga.

Without doubt, sensory overload- a wild and fun eclectic mix of fantasy elements, leading to a cliff-hanger ending!

    I'm really sorry, I tried to like this book but I found it really difficult. The idea is great but I found myself getting irritated with all of the characters and the way they behaved. Especially the amount of whining that went on. I'm really sorry, I tried to like this book but I found it really difficult.

    An exciting story This was a fast-paced, exciting tale. There were spots where dialogue dragged as the characters talked in circles, and right many spots where the same info was thrown at us repeatedly. However, the story itself shined through and made this a page-turner. I have to read the rest of the series!

    I got this book because it was a Kindle Freebie and the storyline description sounded like a fluffy but potentially interesting read. The beginning put me off and I was ready to abandon it at 7%, but I thought, I should give it till 15% by which point I was drawn in. I'll start with things that I liked about it.

For being a solid 8, maybe 9, on the Fluffy scale, I found the characters incredibly engaging. There was some friction throughout that I think is a key factor in what made them interesting. And by friction, I mean, some of the things they did and said got on my nerves but in a way that made them slightly more real and kept them from being flat. The storyline was also really engaging. I've not previously run across a paranormal romance with quite this layout and hook. The politics and plot all interplayed very nicely and didn't stomp themselves into any major potholes. It was an engaging enough storyline that I immediately paid for book 2. And, Bigfoot!!! Awesome. Things I didn't like: No ending. I hate books that end with a cliff hanger and literally "to be continued." As this was a kindle freebie, I felt less jipped than I would otherwise and between them, felt I was getting a decent value by buying book 2. I was pretty sure I wouldn't want to read book 3, so the price was right when averaged out. Frank really got on my nerves. It was clearly intentional and an effective foil, so that's more of a plus than a negative, but wow did I want to stuff a sock in that guy's mouth. It went too far into eye rolling territory for me. I expect and therefore forgive a certain amount of eye rolling in a fluffy book. This slightly exceeded my acceptable Fluffy to Eye Rolling ratio, acceptable being roughly 0.70. This was a 6 or 7 on the Eye Rolling index which was a scotche too high for my taste. But overall, fun read.

    I was really intrigued by the premise of Eternal Vows as it seemed like a fun mash-up of several genres I like (Fantasy, Time Travel, Romance, Action/Adventure) and it did not disappoint! I enjoyed the book so much that I blew through it in less than 24 hours and was left wanting more.

Sarah is a likable, self-deprecating heroine, so it was fun to spend time with her and see how she managed to extricate herself from all of the dangerous situations she found herself in. The character who intrigued me most in Eternal Vows was King Victor, the immortal whom Sarah marries out of desperation and finds herself forever bonded to. Powerful, magnetic, and more than a little bit scary, Victor could have very well been the villain of the piece, but there was so much spark between Victor and Sarah that I found myself hoping he wouldn't turn out to be all bad. I guess I'll find out exactly what his motivations are and how he really feels about Sarah in book two of the series, Eternal Destiny. I've already downloaded it and can't wait to find out what happens to Sarah!

Though Sarah and Victor are enemies, they seem attracted to each other, which adds excitement to the story. A wonderful story that's full of adventure and humour. It's definitely different from other paranormal stories that I've read. I highly recommend it. If you like Robyn Hood, you'll love this story.

    First, you need to start this story knowing that it is a very light-hearted satire of the fantasy genre. What is interesting about it is that the story has the basic backbones to be a very good fantasy story, but the attempt at humor takes away from this completely. I alternated between laughing at a joke, then rolling my eyes for the next three pages of nonstop corny jokes. I think the book tries too hard to be funny, when it would still be just as good of a satire if all the bad jokes were cut First, you need to start this story knowing that it is a very light-hearted satire of the fantasy genre. What is interesting about it is that the story has the basic backbones to be a very good fantasy story, but the attempt at humor takes away from this completely. I alternated between laughing at a joke, then rolling my eyes for the next three pages of nonstop corny jokes. I think the book tries too hard to be funny, when it would still be just as good of a satire if all the bad jokes were cut and a bit more seriousness was put in their place. The whole book could have used a final edit; there are so many inconsistencies that distract from the flow of the story- for instance, at one point Sarah is described as putting her hands behind her back, then in the next sentence her hand is described as still being held. There are similar issues with places- it seems like Sarah is teleporting around all the time: one moment she's talking to someone in the crowd, the next she's back with her group on a platform.

    Wow I am a little bit speechless. I actually had to sleep on it before I could figure out what to say about this book. I liked the pace of this story lots of thing happening. I never knew exactly what would happen next. There was a lot of strange unexpected creatures like Bigfoot, shape shifters, immortals and then there is the magic or maybe not magic ring.Oh, and let us not forget the portal to an different dimension.

It is almost like the author took all her favorite books freaks and tossed them into a romance love triangle salad. Fun! The only disappointment for me was the lack of a true resolution at the end for any of the problems in the story. It feels too incomplete. I hope the rest of the series has better endings or I won't bother with more.

    Story had potential but the execution fell flat. Zero connection with any of the characters. There were inconsistencies in dialogue (the "other dimension" characters slipped up and used some "modern/real world" phrasing) that jarred believability. The "witty" banter was annoying and superficial. Disappointingly short time spent with Victor, who is probably the most interesting character in the book (though that's not saying much).

From the description, I expected an intriguing, fun, romantic romp, but every plot turn seemed so forced and unnatural that I couldn't really enjoy it. Could have been so much more...

    This was one of the many Kindle freebies I've picked up lately. The premise, while not terribly original, did seem promising enough to deliver an entertaining story, but unfortunately this one just wasn't my thing. Too fluffy, the humour just didn't work for me and I didn't particularly like any of the characters - too shallow, annoying and whiny. Not for me, though lots of others seem to have enjoyed it.

    I think four stars may be too many however, 3 seems just a little too harsh. I was so interesting in this because the story is a little different. I'm curious in terms of this whole myth of big foot and turning them being into a thing from the other side. And it being an alternate reality almost. Not sure if I will carry on the books as I'm sort of bored. I think four stars may be too many however, 3 seems just a little too harsh.

    I'm not going to rate this because my ?distaste? had nothing to do with this book being bad or good. I can handle pretty much any mythological creatures in a book...but i have to say i draw the line at a heroine who hunts big foot...THAT is too weird for my taste I'm not going to rate this because my ?distaste? had nothing to do with this book being bad or good.

    well I really liked this book by Chrissy Peebles. It reminded me a little bit of Outlander but was very different from it. I really liked the main character and I can't wait to read the next book.And see what else she gets into well I really liked this book by Chrissy Peebles.
