LORD OF SIN
With the fourth book in the Fane series, Krinard creates a world where magic merges with reality. Threads of several plotlines and deep underlying sensuality are skillfully woven into the fabric of a carefully crafted story whose complexities add to the drama. This is a one-night read.
Nuala, Lady Charles, is a witch whose mission had been to bring lovers together. But after a disastrous assignment she has lost her powers and her husband. She joins the widows who vow never to wed. Then she encounters Sinjin, the Earl of Donnington, who arouses her desires and her powers.
Sinjin has reason to despise Nuala, yet he cannot stave off his desire. As
a member of the confirmed bachelors, known as the Forties, he is eager to take a mistress. As they struggle with their desires, Nuala's friend and Sinjin's compatriot become involved in their own relationship, but dark forces are at work to lure Nuala into danger. The secret that binds Sinjin and Nuala together might tear them apart. (HQN, Sep., 333 pp., $7.99)
