Reincarnated into Cold War America, the hero is unruly as a child, and once an adult, he encounters friends and foes from his past lives, sparking the memory of a decision he made eons earlier that has battled him for lifetimes.

    Amelia is a curious and adventurous young woman. Perhaps too curious. She should never have trespassed in the forbidden room. Should never have become so wantonly excited by the depraved painting and objects found within it. And now she must be punished. It would seem that Lord Mountjoy, her protector and mentor, has hidden depths. He will be the one to punish her. He will be the one to inflict pleasure—and pain—beyond measure. And Amelia will be his—forever!
    
    ~~~~~ PG Excerpt ~~~~~
    
    With a last look around, she pushed hard against the heavy wooden door and slipped inside the forbidden room, quietly closing the door behind her. As she turned around she caught her breath; before her was a bedroom unlike any she had ever seen. She stared at the ghastly shackles, chains and whips that lined the walls, along with some pictures that she couldn’t bring herself to look at. There were horrifying black masks and chairs with leather straps and some weird contraptions, as well as something that resembled the male anatomy modeled in wood
    
    She began to panic, and as instincts took hold she turned to flee. She tried the door, but it was stuck. She pulled the handle, and with growing horror she realized that in her haste she had locked it from the inside. Tears welled in her eyes as she pulled out the key, but it skittered and rattled as she tried to fit it back into the keyhole. It didn't fit. The key only worked from the outside. Finally, she gave in to panic, pounding on the door and screaming for help. But no one could hear her, and no one came. She fell to the floor against the door as she began to cry.
    
    After a while, she pulled herself together. It was hardly as if she would be stuck here forever…someone would come looking for her. And in the meantime, she would do what she had set out to do…explore. She picked herself up and slowly walked around the room, carefully looking at everything. Whatever secrets this strange room held, they would reveal themselves to her.
