The captivating Immortal Brotherhood series continues as another cursed warrior searches for the woman who can set him free. Even readers who are unfamiliar with the series will be enthralled by Hendrix’s masterful storytelling and talent for seamlessly blending magic, myth and romance.
For 200 years Gunnar the Red has lived as a man by night and a bull by day because of a sorceress’s curse. Forced to stay in the forest, he despairs of ever breaking the curse. The bitter cold and a longing for companionship send him to Richmond castle, where he rescues Lady Eleanor de Neville from a fire.
Eleanor is transfixed by the warrior and kisses him as a reward. Though betrothed, she realizes Gunnar is the only man she can love. He leaves, not knowing he carries her heart until the day he returns and realizes the power of her love to redeem his soul. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jan., 380 pp., $7.99)
