Synopsis (Goodreads):
Can they love again? Is it too late?

Nayara Ybarra and Ryan Deasmhumhain are the most powerful vampires known to humans in the 23rd century. They lead the Chronometric Preservation Agency, welded together yet divided by grief that won't heal, their lives on hold. Vampires have lived apart from humans in the two hundred years since Nayara and Ryan jumped back in time and killed their lover, Salathiel, to halt the time wave that was destroying humanity and vampires. Now, Càel Stelios, Worlds Assembly member, intends to make humans like vampires any way he can. He knows the vampires must become allies. Their unique strengths and abilities will help humans in the coming battle against the raging psi and their psychotic leader, Gabriel.

While he wages his political and social campaign he hides his true ambitions: to win Nayara and Ryan for himself. But despite being politically powerful, rich, smart and sexually potent, Stelios has an overwhelming disadvantage: He's human. "No" is not a word he accepts without a fight, however. The psi-filers and Gabriel have plans, though, that will make fighting very real and bloody indeed...

WARNING:  This book contains two hot, sexy alpha heroes, frequent, explicit and frank sex scenes and sexual language.  It includes heart-stopping sexual scenes between the aforementioned sexy heroes, menage scenes, and anal sex. Do not proceed beyond this point if hot love scenes offend you. No vampires were harmed in the making of this novel.
Thoughts on Byzantine Heartbreak: Holy crumb, this book was emotionally wrenching. Is it just me or does the thought of two people lingering for TWO HUNDRED years without one another hurt? That Salathiel really did a number on poor Nayara and Ryan. Shattering the trust of your menage by attempting to destroy life as we know it isn't something that's easy to get past.

Seriously, I'm still a little flaily. Nayara and Ryan have all this history together. Six hundred years as lovers and two hundred as lost souls. That's a lot of anniversaries. The twist of fate that gives vampires crystal clear memories makes it hard for them to get past what they had to do to right the wrongs Salathiel caused. Good thing they have a hard-headed human on their side who's willing to force them to see what they're doing to one another.

And good thing that Stelios has a thing for both Nayara and Ryan. It makes menaging so much more fun when all three are into one another.

This book gives us more layers to the vampire world, more naughty sexy times with three powerful people, and one bad guy who is a very real threat. Time travel, vampires, and menages. Oh, my!

(Yes, I'm still totally on board with the idea of time traveling vampire menages. We need more books like this. MOAR!)
