Renowned beauty Juliane of
Santora is also known to be as cold
as ice. It's said that no man can
"stand" against "Juliane le Gel"
or "Lady Frost."

Ulrich of Caen, a well-known
seducer of women, and two companions arrive at Santora. Ulrich is determined to be the flame that melts Juliane's ice. While the two potential lovers continuously battle each
other and their desires, many
other characters intervene.

When Juliane's father takes ill,
he does what he must to protect his daughter—marry her to Ulrich. Dutifully Juliane goes through with
the marriage but is kidnapped on her wedding day. Will Ulrich be in time to save her—and can they get past each other's lies and misstatements to live
as one?

The Fall is rich in history and
visual description. It's a wonderful
idea that moved a little too slowly
for this reviewer, who would have enjoyed this lively tale more if the
battling couple had been together
earlier in the story. SENSUAL (Sep.,
374 pp., $5.00)
