Publisher's Summary

As a lovely heiress, Roderica Delamore should be a prize catch--except for her shameful secret. She has the ability to hear the thoughts of those around her. Even her family and close friends can't hide from her strange gift. Knowing that she can never marry, for no man could bear it, Roddy still longs hopelessly for a family of her own. Until she meets the man she's been waiting for--the Earl of Iveragh, a mysterious Irish aristocrat whose thoughts are entirely closed to her.
The impoverished Devil Earl is damned in society by dark rumor and innuendo, and, for all she knows, he could be a liar, a rogue, or much, much worse. But Roddy must dance with him at midnight on All Hallows Eve, and entrust her life--and her heart--to a riveting stranger, called by his torment into the faerie mists to discover what she most fears about herself and her own magic.

Seems Like Laura Kinsale Had A Bad Day.

For those of you who read my reviews - you know I love Laura Kinsale's Books. Whenever one of her books comes to Audible I have to listen. I was anticipating her usual greatness for this book but I have to agree with Cam and say its not my cup of tea either.

It wasn't a total loss though. I'm convinced that LK,, even in her worst day, couldn't ever write a total dud. This book did have a good character development, story, mystery, and Nicholas Boulton narrating. I've always said he could make an okay book even better and this is proof.

If this one goes on sale give it a try. My advise for now: Listen to LK's other books and enjoy!

What Was She Smokin'?

I have read all the author's books on audio (except those set in the middle ages as I don't like that period). I've loved all of them, but this one. They've all followed a scenario of two slightly damaged people who manage to overcome the odds, fall in love, and have a future together. This couple seemed to follow that mode at first, then it veered off into airy fairy land with telepathy and visitations of odd other worldly creatures. Several times, I asked myself "where is she going with this?". Even the plotting seemed uneven and uncertain. I still love the narrator, but the story lacked Kinsale's usual tight control of her plot and characters.
