PORTRAIT OF A MAN

Author(s): 
Alexis Conner has always found the study of paranormal activity to be fascinating. Not much surprises her -- except when a man steps through a painting of Lincoln and kisses her senseless. When she finds Rourke at her apartment complex, looking yummy and tempting and asking for help, will she go with her feelings, or will she stay away from him?

Rourke of Calandor needs Alexis' help to bring an end to the plague in Blackfell. He has a connection with Alexis, and his passion for her has allowed him to go back to the past. Now if only they can end the plague and find a happy ending.

This is a problematic read. It's weak as a stand-alone and seems to pick up where Fobes' last effort left off. Those who have not read the first title will be confused. Although the plot is unique and offers the promise of a good read, there is too much going on, and the execution leaves a lot to be desired. (Apr., 368 pp., $6.99)
