Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kinard combines fantasy romance with a little Regency style, and has produced a story about Hern, the Forest Lord, one of the Fane who, in order to return home, must produce a human-fairy offspring with a human woman. Eden Fleming is the woman he chooses, as her father has broken the generations-long trust between the Forest Lord and the Fleming family. He blackmails Eden’s father, and poses as a human to seduce her. At the almost last moment, Eden discovers the deception. She rejects ‘Cornelius’ and flees to a new life in London. Six years later, Eden is back at her hereditary home, Hartsmere. Her husband has recently died leaving her in reasonably dire straits. She and her aunt, each with their own agendas, set up house and Eden starts trying to set her house in order. Meanwhile the Forest Lord has been asleep for 6 years, thoroughly disgusted with the Flemings and humankind in general. He is woken and told Eden is back, whereupon he determines to make her pay for his losing his chance at returning home, and meets her as ‘Hartley’ – a man of the ‘servant’ class who seemingly shows Eden nothing but contempt. But even the supernatural cannot escape from their fate, and it would seem he and Eden have more between them than bad feeling – not the least being a six year old boy. The half human son who is his way home…
This is a well constructed and well written story, and I liked the use of the natural world reflecting how things are between Hartley and Eden. However, neither of the central characters were particularly attractive to me – Eden with her short sightedness, her complete self involvement and her always being aware of class to the nth degree.

For thousands of years, before humans inhabited the earth, an ancient race of magical beings, the Fane or Faerie folk, roamed free in forests and wooded places. With the coming of man, these creatures made themselves invisible, except to animals and others of their kind. There is a magical forest, situated in the north of England, surrounding the estate of Hartsmere in Westmorland. This enchanted wood is ruled and protected by Hern, guardian spirit of the Forests and youngest son of Oberon and Titania. Hern is of the Fane, a near immortal being. He is one of the last of the Elder Race to remain in the world of men and has grown weary of living among mortals. Longing to return to Tir-na-nog, the Blessed Land of his people, he seeks a way to leave the forest he has guarded so well for millennia.
The Fane have greatly diminished in number. To save themselves from extinction, each Fane had to steal or sire a half-human child to increase their population and strengthen their bloodline. Hern, the Forest Lord has not yet provided his people with such a child and is commanded to do so before he will be allowed to enter Tir-na-nog.
The Fleming family, who owned Hartsmere, have prospered for generations. Their health, wealth and prosperity is due to an oath they swore "to protect the forest and all its inhabitants from the ravages of mankind." When Cyrus Fleming, Earl of Bradwell, trespasses upon protected ground and attempts to kill an enormous stag, he is forced to make a bargain with Hern who demands Bradwell give him his daughter or die a terrible death. Fleming agrees, but only if Hern wins his daughter's love.
Hern appears to Lady Eden as her distant cousin, Cornelius Fleming, and courts her with so much success that their union is consummated the night before the wedding ceremony.

This book was boring with a capital B! I felt that the two main characterswere as exciting as root canal and I found myself skipping pages at analarming rate. Its a good thing a only borrowed it from the library anddidn't waste my own money. Need I say more?

My first ever Krinard book, Wow! I couldn`t put it down. Enchanting, magical and romantic without the slush!
I can`t wait to read the others.
The imagery reminded me of 'legend' with tom cruise.
What a stunning film this would make.
