Book Description

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.

Review

"I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a book as much as Faerie! It captivated me from the first page and I didn't want to put it down. Delle Jacobs is a beautiful, witty, romantic writer with a flair for unique stories." --Colleen Gleason, best-selling author of The Gardella Vampire Chronicles

"Beautiful and mesmerising, history and magic collide in this incredible, sweeping romance you won't ever forget. Faerie is absolutely enchanting." --Delilah Marvelle, author of Forever a Lady

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge this book by my review... November 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Leonie, a half faerie finds herself, along with the man she has wanted since forever, fighting evil magical forces that she barely understands.

On the positive side: It's an interesting set-up. A strong female character, who bucks the system, and finds herself with the guy of her dreams (who apparently has issues), in a world filled with magic and old castles. Medieval story fans will have lots of stuff to like here, as this has lots of long ago rituals and historical references in it's pages. People who like multidimensional characters will be ok with this book since the characters aren't perfect, ergo human.

Also, it's written with a tone that perfectly suits the time period while not being unreadable for todays audiences. The language used is modern english flavored with the occasional archaic word to make you feel like you're there and reading something from there.

And now the negative side:

I want it clear that most of my problems with this piece of work are personal issues/opinions that don't necessarily reflect how everyone else will see this story.

First off, there are several writing tropes that I personally have problems with, and a lot of them are in this book. Things like: lying in order to create tension. I understand that if each character tells the truth about their situation, the actual story will not even happen, making lying necessary for the sake of the adventure. My problem is that this sort of thing creates a false complication, a manufactured problem that no one in their right mind would even have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good October 6, 2012
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I started this book yesterday morning and read it all day. This morning I got up and finished it. I wish this happened more often but not every book has a steady pace that keeps me turning pages. I'm rather surprised at the "lackluster" reviews. Romance is not my favorite genre but the paranormal is. I thought this book had just enough romance that it didn't ruin it for me. I like romance, just not romance overkill. I thought the pace was steady with no slow parts and exciting enough to have me glued to the book all day.

I liked the heroine, Leonie, who was half human and half faerie. She had to keep her faerie origins a secret because people didn't understand magic and the supernatural even though they knew it existed. They thought it was evil and it was very likely they would have killed her as a witch. Philippe was also very likeable. He was a cursed knight who could never love again. His curse was that he would murder whoever he loved with his own hands. After seeing his wife's death caused by the same person who cursed him, he had no desire to cause another woman's death. Leonie had fallen in love with Philippe almost from the first time she had seen him when she was a young girl. Years later when she saw him again, nothing had changed. Then something happened that made her fear and dislike him. Hoping to have him imprisoned , she is shocked at the king's punishment.

I don't like reviewers who tell the whole book so I will let you read the details for yourself. I thought it was very good and all of the characters were interesting. I highly recommend this book for lovers of the paranormal and romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great supporting cast! September 24, 2012
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I enjoyed the historical setting; the relationships and rankings of the time are well done and believable, but I expected more of a heroine--Leonie, who's half faerie--with magical powers. However, I loved her way with her bow and arrows. Philippe, the hero, has commitment issues, but that's not his fault. I actually liked the other characters more: Rufus, the king; the blacksmith's son, Sigge; de Mowbray, the Black Earl of Northumbria; and especially Ilse, de Mowbray's intelligent and magical dog.

There was plenty of danger, evil, demons,and sorcery, and eventually the heroine defeats her attackers with the help of friends--and family. But there wasn't enough adventure--just misery and suffering; it took too long for anything exciting to happen--and some scenes just slowed the story down...*

A minor quibble. Apparently the author liked the word smirk, and Leonie smirked way too often. Not a positive characteristic.

Notes:
In the Acknowlegements, I learned that Ilse was a Scottish deerhound. Nice addition to the story.

*Adult content.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read and a great surprise October 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me by a friend, and although I normally don't read paranormal stories, this one was a great, intriguing read. The romance was involving and passionate, and the characters had enough twists and turns in their lives to make me read the entire book in just a few hours. I could definitely tell that the author had done a great deal of research, and the details she included really made the plot come to life. Not the usual, canned storyline, and I appreciated that, too!

2.0 out of 5 stars Confusing writing and repetitions galore! November 14, 2012
By JPW
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I normally love Delle Jacobs and can't wait until the next book comes out, but this book was so poorly written I wondered several times if Delle was OK.

First are the repetitions. 'Haps' happened so many times that it just became irritating after a very short while. There were a couple scenes where multiple characters said it multiple times within just a few pages. Then, there was 'Smirk' which Leone does way too often.

But, my biggest complaint was the confusing scenes and the convoluted story progression. At times I wondered if my book was missing whole paragraphs, lines or chapters.

Here's an example: At first Phillipe leaves Leone's uncle's castle to take care of property given to him by the king. Leone watches him leave with all his knights. You are given to understand that he will be gone for a rather long time since there is no one to oversee his new property, not to mention it is several days away. The next morning Leone heads to the forest to gather dye making materials...and in the next paragraph Phillipe is alone in the forest and finds Leone. What?!? He was leaving the territory! He was with a contingent of knights! How is it possible that he is back and alone?!? Then, later in the story, both Phillipe and Leone and a group of vassals go to the property and find it trashed, and he's surprised. What?!? Didn't he do as his king told him to do? Was he ignoring a royal edict and doing whatever he wanted to do? Is that why he's never been to his property? Neither scenario was ever explained as to why and how they happened.

Or, how about when the heroes finally overcome the villain; I'm still trying to figure out what happened there. I know they won. I know the villain ended up dead. But, other than that, it's a big, confusing blur.

More About the Author

I like to say I live in a fantasy world of endless green forests, cascading silvery rivers that run between shining, snow-capped mountains, and within reach of both a high desert scabland and a sandy-beached, marine blue ocean. It's called Washington State. I share this wonderland with two to three generations of adult males (more or less, depending on time and circumstances), the requisite two writer's cats of mixed heritage and contradicting dispositions, and all sorts of other mossy-backed folk who don't mind the rain that makes our land so magical. I love to fill my historical and fantasy romance with this same feeling of magic.

I'm a three time winner of the Golden Heart and have won many other awards for my books. I have been involved in e-publishing almost from the industry's beginning. Besides writing, my other favorite addiction is designing covers for ebooks.

Now, it's true, my life doesn't always seem all that rich in fantasy and beauty. But every word of it is true. I might have dressed it up a bit for the introductions, but since that's the way I like it, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks again to all of you who have taken the time to read, review and appreciate my books, both publicly and in personal notes. I love hearing from fans, so if you're of a mind to drop me a line, please don't hesitate.
