Book Description

9 Oct 2012

Like her mother before her, Leonie of Bosewood carries Faerie blood in her veins, a secret she harbors to protect her own life. For although the people of eleventh-century England believe in magic, their ignorance and fear have made being different a very dangerous prospect. Caught between the human and Faerie worlds, yet belonging in neither, Leonie must guard her heart…no matter how strong the temptations.

As the king’s emissary, Philippe le Peregrine has watched Leonie mature from gangly girl to alluring woman. With each encounter, his attraction grows, but he knows a match between them can never be. For Philippe hides his own secret, one that has condemned him to a life of lonely celibacy for fear of harming the woman he loves. But when powerful forces prompt them to unite against a sorcerer intent on conquering the world, Leonie and Philippe realize that only together are they strong enough to combat the evil threatening to engulf them.

About the Author

A native of Illinois, Delle Jacobs has been crafting stories since the tender age of four. She earned a degree in geography from the University of Oklahoma and worked as a cartographer until eventually becoming a social worker specializing in troubled teens and families. Everything changed, however, once she began writing books in 1993, and by 2004, literary success convinced her to quit her day job and focus full time on writing. She is a seven-time finalist for the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart Award, which she won an unprecedented three times, in addition to numerous other writing awards for her novels, including His Majesty, the Prince of Toads, Lady Wicked, Sins of the Heart, and Aphrodite’s Brew. Along the way she discovered a knack for designing e-book covers, which is a great way to get her creative juices flowing when her book characters are being particularly uncooperative. She lives today in southwest Washington State with her family. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Faerie fairly average 20 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Enjoyed reading this book in a nice mills and boon kind of way. Standard strong woman wants strong man. Both fight against love then sex by numbers scene. Eventually love conquers all. Shame really as it could have we been built up to a decent story with some history thrown in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Historical fantasy romance 21 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well I enjoyed it, no doubt. It was easy reading, the characters were interesting and had plenty of dimensions, and the historical detail was great.
I was drawn in by the set up of a half-faerie heroine who has never quite fitted into her `place' in society, and the independent minded knight Phillippe who has a dark secret to hide.
For me, the best part of this novel was the dialogue, especially in the latter part, and I will probably read more by this author.
Why not 5 stars? Because I found the tale just a little too long, despite the pace being quite even. Perhaps another edit would have tightened it just that bit, and also picked up on the incidences of repeated words that were rather distracting.
And I'd have liked it better if there had been more foreshadowing of some of the rather convenient revelations that were crucial to the resolution.
Overall, a recommended read for those who love historical romance with a paranormal twist.

2.0 out of 5 stars sort of good. 9 July 2014
By Baxter
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I sort of liked it. I like mystery books with some added peril and a little bit of romance (not too much or I'm bored). It started off OK with me, there was a bit of mystery and some peril but I soon got fed up with Philippe le Peregrine, the leading man. His "shaft" interferes a lot with the story. Its either engorged or throbbing or moving or doing something. I found it distracting. I thought the book was an easy read though and I'd probably give it 2.5 stars.

By Thomas Elce VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Delle Jacobs has such a graceful writing style that even when she's peddling junk, she almost tricks you into believing her story shall go somewhere interesting even as your head tells you that you should know better. Above all, her minor fictions aren't as painful as some of the duds being thrust on the paying public by Montlake Romance. Alas, her Faerie is just a hodgepodge of way familiar tropes and gimmicks that, despite having the added benefit of sympathetic characters (which is were Jacobs excels the most!), is only ever going to be an acquired taste -- and even if I wouldn't call it bitter, I still can't quite stomach it. For me, her Loki's Daughters was a much more interesting book, with historical themes that worked despite repetition and some unbelievability. With this one, I found nothing worth latching onto and the memory of it is evaporating quickly.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Fantasy Bodice Ripper! 27 May 2013
By T. Walker VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I thought this book was just going to be a fantasy novel - I didn't notice it was to be published by Montlake Romance. Oh well, I thought, now I've got it, I might as well read it. Once I got past the pasionate clinches I quite enjoyed it!
The tale is set in 11th century England, and tells of the turbulent relationship between Leonie of Bosewood and one Phillippe le Peregrine. Now Leonie is shy around Phillippe, which makes it hard enough, but she's also half Faerie (yes, they've spelt it that way) so she has special powers - she can outshoot Phillippe with a longbow and humiliates him by doing so. Phillippe, meantime, is under a curse that any woman he loves will die by his own hand, so he can't allow himself to get involved. So of course he does, and this causes all sorts of mayhem.
Add in a "Hag", a dog, Ilse, with special powers (including flying), various monsters, sorcerers and shades and you have a book that travels at a fair pace. The characters are quite well written, but are beset by doubts - "Does he/she love me?" and that sort of thing. And the author makes an attempt at an 'Olde English' feel by chucking in small archaic words - 'haps' for 'perhaps' and so on. It doesn't work very well, perchance.
So yep, if you enjoy bodices being ripped and manly shafts and stuff, this could be for you!

I mostly liked the book and I'm glad I read it but it's not a easy read, can be confusing and what it built up to was over very quickly, but again worth a read.
