Book Description

A mysterious castle.

A deadly gift.

A missing, unwilling bride.

And a Norman knight determined to conquer all.

Ordered by his King to carry out a cryptic command—kill a wicked sorcerer lord, seize his castle, and take his daughter as a wife—Alain de Crency expects a fierce battle. Instead he discovers a defenseless castle, the daughter missing, and the sorcerer dead, shrouded in a magnificent purple cloak. With no knowledge of the evil lurking within it, Alain takes the cloak as his own before investigating the whereabouts of his supposed betrothed.

Upon Alain’s arrival, Melisande, the sorcerer’s daughter who begrudgingly learned her father’s sinister trade, hides in plain sight as a servant. But Alain suspects this beautiful blonde knows more than she claims, and he resolves to uncover the truth—if he can resist his burning desire for her.

Soon Melisande realizes her father’s infernal magic reaches beyond the grave—and that only Alain can save her people from the menacing evil. But with Alain’s new cloak dyed in poison, can Melisande save her people’s savior without revealing her dark secrets to the man who’s captured her heart?



Product Description

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 has 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Playing With Fire 9 Dec. 2012
By Mrs. D. J. Smith VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
From the product description I got the impression that this was historical-romance-fantasy. Actually there is no fantasy element as all the supposed witchcraft/sorcery stuff has a rational explanation.

We're looking at a Norman historical setting, during the reign of William II (Rufus). This isn't so much a period of interest for me as some later periods and I haven't read an awful lot about it either fiction or non-fiction, so if there are any glaring anachronisms, I've not picked up on them. That said, I think Jacobs is more concerned with her narrative than in giving us much of the minutiae of Norman life.

Overall it was a good read with well drawn characters that you sympathised with (well, except the ones you weren't supposed to!). The hero is almost too good to be true and you do have to wonder why the heroine thinks she has to keep some of the secrets she does. But, as another reviewer has already noted, it would be rather a short story if the didn't! Worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fire Dance 24 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This would have been a much better read if the heroine hadn't been keeping a secret for no apparent reason. Alright it would have shortened the story somewhat but there was no need for her not to tell the hero and I found it very irritating! This was obviously an inexperienced author trying to make it suspenseful but failing woefully by keeping the secret going too long as any idiot could see as soon as he knew everything would be resolved, silly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Run-of-the-Mill Stuff 19 Sept. 2013
By Thomas Elce VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Anyone who's read a dozen books knows how a book like Fire Dance goes: a man takes on the task of undermining a sorcerer (or king, as it more often is), meets his daughter, becomes bessotted, gets torn between his "burning desire" for her and his given job, eventually falls in with her side and so on -- and of course she loves him too (what else would she do?). Delle Jacobs throws a few spanners into the works with a poison chalice, er, cloak and the usual "will they, won't they?" stuff, but she never quite enlivens the story. As with Faerie, it's her graceful, sympathetic writing style that catches your eye with its palpable concern for the fates of its multiple characters and the execution of dialogue that so many writers in this genre haven't a hope in hell of matching. Unfortunately, she's seen where her success lies in terms of publishing and marketing, and sticks with the same path even when the story if so run-of-the-mill and uninteresting when you strip it of its fluorishes. It's a nice book -- better than Faerie and worse than Loki's Daughters -- that I couldn't see anyone hating. However, three books in and I have to say that Jacobs just doesn't do it for me, so sayonara.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hell of a story! 1 Jun. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Poor Melisande has had a hell of a life with her evil father. His wickedness knows no bounds and he has even caused the death of her mother by gifting her with a poisonous cloak. Thank goodness he is now dead. Unfortunately as he gasps his last the Normans are at the gate. Alain De Crency has orders from King William II (Rufus) to take both the castle and the daughter as his wife.

Melisande hides in plain sight as one of the servants, protected by her people. Alain is attracted to the young girl but knows that it is his duty to marry Melisande who seems to have disappeared.. To make matters worse Alain has also taken a fancy to the poisonous cloak and wears it constantly. Whatever she does Melisande is unable to part him from it. She knows he will not believe it toxic and even when he realises her identity and marries her she is unable to tell him. She is haunted by demons which invade her sleep terrifying her. While Alain and his knights battle Saxons endangering the castle to make the area safe for his King who is on his way north, he tries to make sense of his wife.

Delle Jacobs is a new author to me and I really enjoyed this story.

3.0 out of 5 stars A historical novel - does what it says on the tin! 26 Sept. 2013
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As a reader of historical chick lit (such as Philipa Gregory) thought I would give this historical romance a go: A fairly standard romance story I would have thought, girl hates guy then realises she's in love with him, but, oh no, there is something stopping them being together - will it get resolved and they live happily ever after???? of course it will!
This is not going to win any awards for novelty, plotting or character depth but it had some nice period details, dialogue and good descriptions of characters, castles, and the like, which kept me entertained.

Not at all taxing on the brain, the characters were okay - a leading lady with a hard life to feel sorry for (I did want to say "pull yourself together and stop being so silly" to her, and a dark and handsome hero but I'm not sure I'd be swooning... if you like romance I'm sure you will enjoy this book, if you're after something a bit meatier, look elsewhere, but I found it a pleasant way to while away a few hours.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry not my cup of tea. 29 Mar. 2013
By BusyReader VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am quite keen on historical romances of periods in history which I know about so got this on the off chance it would teach me about life in the Norman times as it's an area of history that I haven't much read about ,sadly I found the book quite tedious- it started well but became too far fetched and I got bored with it so have not completed it . I will keep it for a time when I have time to try again .
