I'm looking for a book that I read maybe 2 years ago that I really enjoyed but have forgotten the title of.

Here's what I remember:

  • the initial romance takes place between a man and a woman in the past (a few hundred years ago in Britain or Scotland)

  • the heroine is scared of the hero bc of his reputation so their first sexual encounter starts with him willingly tied to a chair (though she soon releases him)

  • there is magic involved and the villain turns him into a statue (?) stuck in a tower

  • the heroine has to reach him (and do something that I can't recall) to break the curse

  • every time that she is killed trying, she is reborn to try again

  • I think she has a guardian who is immortal (?) to help her, but he has to refind and reexplain everything to her each time

  • in the current incarnation she is an expert in martial arts and finally manages to succeed

    Sort of a medieval "Edge of Tomorrow" but with kinky sex? Sounds delightful. – Valorum Aug 5 '16 at 8:07

    Well, I didn't know I needed this in my life up until now. So, I'm also waiting for the answer. – kittenparry Aug 5 '16 at 9:05
  • Wow lol, try searching your bookshelves, this sounds interesting – Mikasa Aug 5 '16 at 16:53
  • You guys need to get out more. @Jojoreads, I don't know of this one offhand (although admittedly, I'm pretty limited on romance/erotic to one fantasy author), and I'm trying to troll through TvTropes to find a close match but not finding one (Deverry looks close-ish?). Anything you can add (a character name?) may be helpful. – Radhil Aug 5 '16 at 20:35
  • Is she reincarnated as a different person or is this the same person in a time loop? – HyperNym Dec 26 '20 at 5:09
