From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Best known as an author of erotic thrillers, Rose (Lip Service) delves into religious myth and past-life discovery in her well-paced ninth novel. In present-day Rome, a terrorist bomb explosion triggers flashbacks of pre-Christian Italy in photographer Josh Ryder. Josh experiences the memories as Julius, a pagan priest defending the sacrosanct monuments of his gods and the life of his vestal virgin lover against the emperor-mandated onslaught of Christianity in A.D. 391. Six months later, Josh has teamed with the Phoenix Foundation, an institute specializing in past-life memories in children, to explore a newly excavated tomb that may contain pagan memory stones that incite past-life regressions and will, by proving the existence of reincarnation, challenge the church. The stakes rise after it becomes clear that dangerous outside forces also want the stones. In a series of memory lurches, the narratives of Josh and Julius slowly wind together to reveal a Da Vinci Code–esque tale of intrigue that's more believably plotted and better meets its ambitions than Dan Brown's ubiquitous book. (Sept.)

From Booklist
After a bomb explosion nearly kills photojournalist Josh Ryder, he begins experiencing flashbacks—or, perhaps, memories—of events that seem to have happened to him 1,600 years earlier, in another life. Convinced these episodes aren't figments of his imagination, he enlists the aid of the Phoenix Foundation, a group that specializes in past-life research. Later, when he becomes involved in the unearthing of an ancient tomb—and experiences a connection with its long-buried resident—Josh realizes he has a chance to right a wrong that happened a millennium and a half ago, not to mention an opportunity to solve a series of modern-day murders. This is one of those books that succeeds in spite of itself: even though the writing is merely competent, the story itself is so appealing that you can't stop reading. Josh Ryder is a difficult character to pull off (among other things, he's a man in love with a woman who lived 1,600 years ago), and at times he comes off a little loopy. But for the most part he, like the novel itself, is surprisingly well grounded in the real world. Pitt, David

Thanks for heads up!

I was on the fence about this book, and getting it free definitely makes it an easier choice.

So is this a Love Story? I registered and downloaded the book and then looked around at the rest of the site. It seems Harlequin only publishes Romance. Is that correct?

The Reincarnationist is a historical thriller with romantic overtones but in my opinion is quite weak for various reasons - the main protagonist is just dumb for example -

Luckily I read The Memorist first, the second book in the loose series of historical thrillers based around the idea of reincarnation, past lives, recovering memory of such - and that one is a much, much better book and I really enjoyed it..

So skip this one and try that one - browse it first somewhere since now it should be in stores everywhere to see if you like it. If you start with this one there is a good chance you will abandon it.

Yes... the "Harlequin Romance" is actually a category in some book stores.

I picked up the freebie because I almost bought it from Fictionwise this morning. I may or may not like it but it's been on my FW and BoB wishlists so I may as well try it.

THE REINCARNATIONIST is suspense not romance

A friend told me you were talking about my book and suggested I show up to clear something up. I write suspense and psychological suspense. I'm published by Mira which yes,is owned by Harlequin, but I don't write romances - not that there is anything wrong with them - but my books are more in the vein of and have been compared to Katherine Neville and Doug Preston/Lincoln Childs. I didn't want anyone to download my book thinking it was a romance because you'd be really disappointed in it. Thanks for your time.

Cool. Thanks so much for stopping by. There are a couple of other threads about the free Kindle version of your book which included the description of what the book is about. I neglected to add that information to this thread. I'll go back and correct it.

Thanks for the free book, thanks for posting and welcome to MobileRead!

If someone has downloaded the MS Lit version and would be willing to e-mail a copy to me, I would appreciate it. Please send me a PM. I went to download the book to give it a try now that it has been definitively described as not a romance, but Harlequin insists I open an account, something I would prefer not to do at this time. Thanks.

thank you very much OP and to M. J. Rose for making this available free. Downloaded and on my reader for reading next...

My wife already has a hard copy of this but I prefer to use my reader as much as possible... she reads a lot of mystery fiction and wholeheartedly recommends the book, and M. J. Rose's previous books too. I have so many eBooks to read that I'd probably never have gotten round to reading the paperback but because I carry my reader everywhere (yes, even there ) it'll actually stand a chance of being read!

Cheers,
Terry.
