IN THE GARDEN OF SIN
Burton's command of language is most impressive, particularly the 17th-century prose and dialogue. Even with the supernatural elements, both stories are grounded in reality, manifest in the honest emotions of each character. The storylines are compelling, the second slightly more so than the first, with warm humor and pleasing plot twists. The erotic component of each story is irresistible, sometimes even tender. You won't want to miss this book.
