David and Sera are soul mates destined to be together, if only their bumbling guardian angels could do their job right.
First united in Pompeii A.D. 79 as a young Roman girl and a slave gladiator, their young love is cut short when Vesuvius unexpectedly erupts. After several botched attempts, their angels get one final chance to bring the couple together and personally escort them back to war-torn Italy, nearly two thousand years later.
Sera is now an archeologist excavating the ruins of Pompeii and David is an American soldier masquerading as an Italian, sent to spy on the Germans camped near the ruins. With the help of their earth-bound angels, David and Sera must overcome deception, heartbreak and the forgotten tragedy of their past lives. Working side by side in the ruins where they died centuries ago in each other's arms, David and Sera's relationship grows from a guarded friendship to explosive passion as they excavate their own bodies and, in doing so, unearth the love of a lifetime.
