***5** Stars for Kristine Cheney's Spartan Heart 1

Spartan Heart, Part One by Kristine Cheney

Sent away to college in America, Evangeline swore she would never return to England. Anger loses its value when tragedy forces her home to assume ownership of the family's beloved Greco-Roman museum.

Placing a foolish, drunken kiss on a Greek statue in the museum's basement, Evangeline unknowingly frees a Spartan prince from an evil oracle's curse. Suddenly, her lonely life is invaded by the rakish man with knowing emerald green eyes who never eats or sleeps, and seems to know her every thought and feeling.

Falling in love is dangerous, especially when it's with a man who has already been claimed by the bitter oracle, Demona. From the moment of her kiss, Evangeline is swept into Dorien's world of mystery, danger, and passion. The oracle's fury only mounts as they unravel Demona's darkest secrets, but not before Demona finds out about their unborn half-breed immortal twins.

Demona uses her knowledge of the future to manipulate and destroy, but sometimes love has a will, and a heart, of its own
.

Dorien was trapped in a statue by an evil witch called Demona.  One evening Evangeline who is distraught finds the statue and is immediately attracted to it, in a fit of delirium she kisses it and Dorien is released from the curse.  Evangeline and Dorien fall in love, but there is so much more to the story then just that.  Read it to find out!
This book is tantalizing and enthralling.  The beginning is emotional and fills you with the same emotion that you are reading.  You know it's great writing when you feel what the character is feeling.  I like the characters and their personalities, at first Evangeline is timid but not submissive and she later gets more brazen.  Dorien is Alpha but so so sweet.  I cannot wait for you to discover these characters!  The secondary characters are also awesome!
The story will captivate you and make you want to continue reading until the very end and even when you hit the end it will not be enough!
This book is a must buy!  I loved it so much that I raced to Amazon to buy Spartan Hearts 2!!!
