Genre: Historical Romance
As a healer with a gift for empathy, Ninian Malcolm Siddons is looked upon as a witch by the townspeople. As she watches the villagers celebrate Beltane she wishes for a lover and babies, but one must be careful what one wishes for.
With the return of Earl Drogo Ives, Ninian fears the old legend that marriage between a Malcolm and an Ives will bring destruction to the village. The two are destined to meet. A scholar of astronomy with a logical mind, Drogo is bewitched by this fey young woman who drives him to distraction. During one stormy night of passion their lives will be changed forever.
Drogo, who must find his magic here on Earth and not in the heavens, and Ninian, a young woman with love in her heart who must believe in herself and the talents and gifts she was born with, are remarkable characters. Ms. Rice pens a sensual, compelling story complete with a cast of zany characters. SENSUAL (Jul., 380 pp., $6.99)
