The Waterlord is a skillful blend of Regency Romance and Fantasy. The story begins immediately with Lady Rebecca fleeing her father and a forced marriage. When her carriage overturns, she is rescued by Count Klaus Lindegren and whisked to safety at his "cottage".
From here on, the otherwordly blends well in the ensuing romance between the two. Miss Thompson has borrowed from Swedish mythology and woven it skillfully into her story. To say more might ruin the delights that await the reader. I was enchanted.
There are villains, from this world and the other, and they act in a believable way to try and foil the romance between Klaus and Rebecca. The ending is satisfying, and left me wanting another book that deals with the two worlds. I will say this: you'll never look at a waterfall again without being reminded of The Waterlord!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dawn Thompson's The Waterlord was a refreshing dip in a delightful tale of Otherworldly romance. The sexy and seductive Count Klaus Lindegren led Lady Rebecca Gildersleeve on a slippery, sensual path that took them from desperation and loneliness to passion and love. Forced to deal with the decisions of their fathers, Klaus and Becca forge their own destiny as they defy family and position for the sake of true love.

This book dives into Klaus' strong embrace from the first few pages, but weaves its way to passion through dreams, fantasies and, ultimately, through the sacrifice of one life for another. The characters are people you come to love or hate, the descriptions are like looking at an artist's masterpiece and the fantasy is pure ecstasy. This is not a leisurely "take your time" book, it is the kind of book that makes you stand up in the middle of a flight to DC and scream, "Take her already, Klaus, the anticipation is killing me!" (my apologies to everyone at American Airlines)

As I turned the last few pages of The Waterlord, I discovered a keen, new fascination for waterfalls and a deeper appreciation for such a vivid author's imagination. I would also like to thank Ms. Thompson for my own wonderful dreams of the Fossegrim, who knew water could be so much fun.

"The Waterlord" by Dawn Thompson was a much anticipated read for me. I'd not read very many paranormal historicals before so I was glad of the chance to read this tale. Strong characters and beautiful, if somewhat strange, imagery combine to make a fairly good read in this tale based upon the author's splendid research of Norse legends and mythology.

Lady Rebecca Gildersleeve has fled from her home, hoping to avoid an unwanted marriage that is being forced upon her. When her carriage overturns into a dangerously steep gorge, rescue is at had in the sinfully male form of Count Klause Lindegren of Sweden. Becca feels an inexplicable pull towards the stranger and is almost helpless to deny the needs he awakens in her. However, it soon becomes clear that this mysterious Count is not all he appears. Strange moonlit nights reveal mystical tales to her that cannot be possible, tales of the Fossegrim - men driven to precreate with bespelled human females...or could they be true? Rebecca has to determine if she's safe with the Count or better off in the hands of her odious father.

Since I hate to find fault with any book, I'll get my one complaint over with first - the story at times was hard for me to follow, and I backtracked alot (especially in the first half, which was a little slow) to help keep myself straight. Other than that, I came away pretty pleased with my first read by D. Thompson. I've always had a love for different mythologies, so I was glad to see that that is what this story was based upon. Klaus was a very complex character, torn between his duties and obligations to his astral realm and those of his heart and his love for Becca.
