A TOUCH OF PASSION
Genre: Historical Romance, Paranormal
The small village deep in the Welsh forests is home to an extraordinary family of wizards. With the gift of their powers comes a horrible curse, however: Kian cannot touch the person he loves without pain. Everyone has a soul mate, and in a dockside inn Kian finds his, the young servant Loris. He brings her home to await the day she realizes she is his.
Years pass, and still Loris refuses to believe they are fated. Night after night Kian comes to her in a different form
Meanwhile, the clan's bitter enemy, the Earl of Lew, is plotting revenge, aided by his betrothed, the sorceress Desdemona. He does not know that Desdemona has fallen in love with Kian's twin brother, Dyfed, and plans to help the clan vanquish its curse.
As the three wizards combine their powers, it's up to Loris to use the strength of her newfound love for Kian to break the spell and free them from destruction.
With the second in her fantasy series, Paul establishes herself as a bright voice in the subgenre. Skillfully merging the elements of reality with fantasy to create the atmosphere of the era, she has readers believing in myths and magic so deeply that they are completely swept away by the story. It takes cleverness, imagination and talent to keep readers spellbound, and Paul has it all. SENSUAL (Dec., 400 pp., $6.99)
