Product Description

Product Description

A man haunted by the past meets a woman without a future in a tale that spans rugged Greek islands and Regency England society. From bestselling author Katherine Kingsley.

Having grown up wild and carefree on the Greek island of Corfu, Callista Melbourne reluctantly sails to England to honor her father’s dying wish. But before she reaches England, a fierce storm knocks her from the ship to face certain death in the icy grip of the ocean. When she awakes in Stanton Abbey, cared for by a handsome stranger, she doesn’t know where he came from, or who she is.

When Adam Carlyle pulls the unconscious woman from the sea, she is the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen. Concerned by her amnesia, he tracks down Callista’s true identity, and becomes determined to save her from marrying a scheming fortune hunter. A widower, his attraction to Callista threatens his vow to never risk his heart again, and leaves him wondering how to protect his new love from the dangers of his past.

“Katherine Kingsley is a miracle worker, a writer who understands the map of the human heart.” – Romantic Times

I have read quite a few books from this author. I always enjoy the stories ,although they have a religious theme to them whether it be Christian, muslim ,pagan etc. The books do contain sexual content too. The author is not a bible basher.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Read 14 May 2003
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Although in my opinion this story got off to a slow start,and I must admit to questioning whether or not I would eventually care or even like Adam the hero, the book turned out to be an pleasant read. Ms. Kingsley is not afraid to touch on dark subjects, and normally her hero's are dark and tortured. Adam is no exception.
Callie has been bethrothed to an englishman that she has never met. She has lived abroad in Greece, and Italy, but when her father dies, she promises to go to England and meet her gentleman. On her way to her fate, she falls overboard and into the sea, she is rescued by Adam, who is out to sea getting ready to kill himself because he can find no joy in life since the tragic death of his wife and son two years earlier. Adam ends up saving her in more ways then one and Callie returns the favor, and gives Adam another reason to live.
Again this is a moving story that touches are a dark subject (suicide) with characters that are more human then normal romance characters. This story does not have the characters jumping into bed at every turn, and in actuality the love scene comes more towards the end of the story. In my opinion this is a good thing, and allowed the characters to get to know each other, and respond to the attraction that both feel. This is not a light, funny read, but still worth the time it will take to read it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bland and boring! 10 May 2003
By M. Chandler - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Well, I guess I'll be the party pooper in this as yet swinging bash of reviews. I DID NOT like this book. I could barely get past the first chapter, even then I felt no emotional attachment to the characters. I hardley cared weither Adam killed himself or Callie drowned. I apologize to Ms. Kingsley and her fans everywhere, but I have yet to find a book by this author that is readable....skimable at best. Granted, this is not as bad as Lilies on the Lake, who's only redeemable quality was Pip, who I enjoyed as a person, but the whole book was wishy-washy and dull. This one comes in as bland and boring, with very little witt and charm in characters (except Nigel, I did like him) and no warmth or substance in plot (the whole sea gull being her fathers spirit, came across as stupid instead of reassuring and loving. Which was intended, so Callie would know her father was always with her, blah....blah.) I would have liked to laugh alot more through this book, so much more humor could have been found and put into it. It is ment as an charcter driven adventure style novel, but fell flat....Ms. Kingsley should take tips from MJ. Putney or Amanda Quick, two writers who excell at those type of books, and also offer plenty of witt, intelligent banter and sarcasm to tickle anyone's funnybone.
Also, the romance was less then romantic. The love scene, which didn't happen till pg. 221 of a 336 page novel, was cliche at best.....unintresting and tiresome at worst. Granted, no one needs to jump into bed right away. But things could have excellerated a bit faster, with the getting there a tad more steamy and fun.
But, to please the majority, I will stop bashing. Since most Kingsley fans probley would like my head on a platter right about now. All in all, I would not have wasted my money on this book. Except, that I wanted to give the author one more try, but alas.....she failed.

4.0 out of 5 stars invigorating historical romantic suspense 12 April 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1818 Lord Adam Carlyle rows his boat in the Channel planning to die as far from England as possible. The distraught aristocrat's only pleasure is to thwart his odious cousin by delaying the declaration of inheriting Stanton Abbey. However, his rowboat fails to sink even in a nasty storm and though tired he sees a siren sent overboard from a nearby ship. The siren is knocked unconscious but Adam rescues her.
Her father sent Callie Melbourne back to England to meet her fiancé Harold Carlyle selected for her by her dad. Now she awakens in a stranger's home suffering from amnesia. While Adam helps Callie physically heal, she aids him with his mental healing. As they fall in love, his odious cousin Harold recognizes Callie as his fiancé. Adam, who vowed never to love again, risks his soul because his beloved Callie must never be under the thumb of Harold.
SONG FROM THE SEA is an exciting Regency romance though readers will not accept the hero's attempt to commit suicide (sort of like Lethal Weapon I). Adam is too courageous and too contemptible of his cousin to kill himself even though he felt he had nothing to live for when two cherished people recently died. Callie is a delight from the moment Adam sees her as a sea siren while Harold is too nasty to accept as a rival. Still sub-genre fans will appreciate Kaherine Kingsley's invigorating historical romantic suspense.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spiritual, sensual, and light! 17 May 2003
By Tara A. Green - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Adam Carlyle rows out to sea to end his life. It's the perfect end to end his grief and despair and at the same time not allow the next in line, Harold Carlyle, to claim his vast fortune.
Adam comes upon a large ship moving at a quick pace. He hears a beautiful song and his attention turns to the ship's stern. There he watches in horror as Callie Melbourne jumps into the water.
Realizing his suicide plans have been thwarted for the moment, he sets out to rescue her. When he rows her back to his home, he discovers she has lost her memory. He gives her refuge in his home and quickly becomes intent on helping Callie with her problems. Adam's close friend soon finds out she was sent to England from America to marry Harold Carlyle, a fat and despicable young man who is none other than Adam's cousin.
Adam is fighting demons from his past. He tragically lost his wife and child to a hunting accident and blames himself for not being there to protect them. Callie brings him back to the living, and gives him purpose.
This uplifting story is spiritual, sensual, and light. This is a beautiful and captivating story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better and Better 7 April 2003
By PENNY KING - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is another fabulous book from Katherine Kingsley. After losing his wife and son in a tragic accident,Adam, Marquess of Vale has decided to kill himself and is very upset that he has to delay his suicide to save Calista Melbourne from drowning after she fall off a ship in the middle of the ocean. After taking her back to his estate, Adam gets involved in taking care of Calista and forgets about his plans to do away with himself and starts living again. Calista doesn't remember her past life but she soon finds herself loving the one Adam creates for her. When the fortune hunting fiance she doesn't remember finds her, Adam offers to marry her to protect her from Harold the horrible, who happens to be Adam's despised cousin. Ms. Kingsley so beautifully combines rich characters, interesting story line and heart lifting spirtuality into fabulous stories. She is such a joy to read.
