THE LADY OF SECRETS
Genre: Historical Romance, Paranormal, England
The fifth in the Dark Queen series sweeps deep into the lush and mysterious world of the mystical era after Catherine de Medici’s death, when witch burnings and fear of curses plagued kings and peasants. Carroll’s gift for blending magic, romance, history and spiritualism is what readers savor in each of her novels and it’s still a source of reader pleasure in this latest offering.
Meg Wolfe is a gifted healer, spiritualist and Lady of the Faire Isle, free to breathe easier since her mother’s death. But Meg’s peace is broken when King James sends Sir Patrick Graham and Dr. Armagil Blackwood to bring her to court to break a witch’s curse. Handsome Sir Graham interests Meg far more than the dark and dour doctor. At court, she discovers there are strange forces at work. Meg must use her powers to unmask a traitor and, in doing so, discover a love she never expected. (BALLANTINE, Dec., 429 pp., $15.00)
