This series by Nina Crespo always stands out in my mind because it’s the first I’ve come across where the heroes time travel but masquerade as a rock band that no one can remember upon meeting. Pretty neat huh? And the covers are pretty hot too.
Her lifelong addiction to romance began in her teens while on a “borrowing spree” in her older sister’s bedroom where she discovered her first romance novel.
Curiosity about people and places, including what’s beyond the stars, fuels her writer’s imagination. Indulge in her sensual contemporary stories and steamy paranormal tales to feed your own addiction for love, romance, and happily ever after.

To be with the man of her dreams, she'll have to face her worst nightmares...
Ari is looking to live a normal life. But after she hits her head, normal is no longer an option. A mysterious, rugged man appears, whom only she can see... each night he fulfills her fantasies and leaves her begging for more. She's sure he's a figment of her imagination-until she finds out the hard way that he's all too real. Now, to truly be with him, Ari will have to embrace the parts of herself she's been desperately keeping at bay.
Dalir's been burned by love before, yet he can't resist Ari's beauty and charm. And all it takes is one kiss to spark nights of passion. But there's danger on the horizon that only Dalir and his friends in the band Thane's Redemption can deal with. And the longer he stays with Ari, the greater the peril to them both. Will the two of them be strong enough to fight for their newfound love-and their lives?
Can you imagine meeting the man of your dreams except you’re the only one who can see him? That’s what happens to Ari after she hits her head. Each night her dream man brings her fantasies to life but at the same time Ari is convinced she’s losing her mind until an event proves to her that Dalir is very real. So is the danger that’s getting closer and the longer Dalir stays with Ari the more dangerous it becomes for her.
Seriously, this series has been a stand out in my mind since I read the first book but Dalir’s Salvation is hands down my favorite in the series! A sexy, dimension traveling hero, a sassy, gifted heroine, steamy scenes, and a conniving villain? What’s not to love?
Dalir has been a pretty big mystery from the beginning of the series. He was the guy who created a group of time traveling covert agents who masqueraded as the rock band Thane’s Redemption. But Dalir wasn’t just a regular guy who traveled through time. He was an exiled prince from another realm. Wow right? He had a wry sense of humor to go with the royal blood and a deep rooted sense of responsibility for those who couldn’t protect themselves. He was also loyal and cared about the team of men he was in was technically in charge of but at the same time he came to regard them as family. Dalir wasn’t just a prince in name, he carried himself as a prince in every way. As in he expected to be obeyed at all times so it was fun to have a heroine like Ari basically tell him where to stick his princely attitude.
Together Dalir and Ari made a formidable team and a great couple. I loved how Dalir never questioned Ari’s gifts and he didn’t brush off her concerns or ideas. Even when they were arguing they were good together. I loved the balance that Nina Crespo created between the romance and the fantasy elements of Dalir’s Salvation. I never felt overwhelmed with either aspect and I appreciated what the time traveling angle did for the overall plot. Catching up with Thane, Celine, Reid, and Lauren was also a delight because I really enjoyed the previous books and the way they were all tied together and while Dalir’s Salvation can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend you read the series in order to get the most enjoyment out of each book and out of the bigger story as a whole.
I will say that I’m surprised that the other members of the team didn’t get their own books before Dalir because I really did like this concept for a romance and hadn’t run across it before. I do hope Nina Crespo has some plans for the other supporting members of the team because I liked them.
Final Verdict: Dalir’s Salvation is my favorite out of the three books in the series and it probably has to do with Ari having her own special talents and being the only heroine to really make an impact on the overall plot. Dalir didn’t hurt either since he’s been so mysterious for the past two books. Overall I’m sad to see this end but on the other hand I’m glad it ended the way it did.
