From the Back Cover

TWO FATES...

Sybilla Corbuc has an uncommon understanding of the horses she cares for, but there are men who distrust such wisdom in a woman. Forced to become a nobleman's servant to avoid prison, Sybilla finds herself bound by chains that are stronger still--she cannot deny her passionate feelings for her new master, Sir Guy of Warwick. Neither is prepared to submit to the other, but his dark eyes and his unbridled desire are too potent a force to resist...

ONE JOURNEY...

Brought together by the birth of a mysterious colt, an animal of supernatural power that may foretell their destiny, they embark upon a perilous journey as the kingdom crumbles around them, a journey that will bring them ever closer to each other--and to the danger that lies ahead. And only love can save them...

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The most interesting characters in this novel are a pony and a spurned lover, the other characters are okay but the mystery surrounding the aforementioned are much more interesting.

Sybilla is a horse midwife and for some reason only the Church knows, assisting horses during birth is evil and she is banned from practicing her services. Somehow Sybilla manages to get the funds to buy a pregnant mare and she assists in the birthing of a special colt that is bigger than normal with special markings. When the sheriff and Lord Hamon discover what she is about they are determined to find her and take away her colt. She plans on using this animal to start a horse farm. This, by the way, was hardly plausible as she has no money or parents and she cannot practice her skill.

Sybilla is saved from certain death by Sir Guy, a landed knight bent solely on avenging his sister and nephew's deaths. He is convinced Lord Hamon killed his sister. Guy and Lord Hamon have a history, Sir Guy had an affair with Lord Hamon's wife, Lady Morna, and her husband is the possessive sort. Lady Morna is a seer and has predicted that a horse marked like Sybilla's colt will lead Sir Guy to evidence of the murder. To protect Sybilla, Guy claims the colt and states that Sybilla is his servant. This is difficult for her as she is a freewoman, however, Sybilla is aware of the danger surrounding her and her colt and she takes a subservient role with Guy except when it comes to horses.

To ensure Sybilla and the colt's safety, the two must make their way to Sir Guy's liege lord but there are some bumps along the way, namely the little colt which develops some strange afflictions (I never knew how the colt would behave.) Lord Hamon is not about to leave them alone either.

I loved Shadow Rider! The level of historical detail included really made it seem alive, as if I were right there with Guy and Sybilla in 14th century England. The story is absorbing and unusual (I won't give it away), but what intrigued me most were the characters: true to the times, but understandable, likable individuals with human needs and flaws.
G R E A T, heartfelt love scenes, too. I can't wait for Dennis's next book!

In a time when women were forbidden from animal husbandry and care, Sybilla Corbuc will defy the king himself to save a colt and fulfill a legacy.

Sybilla has a bond to horses that no one can explain or define. Never is this more evident than on the night a special colt is born. This newborn foal, Regalo as she names him, is elf shot and Sybilla is afraid if the truth about him gets out, she will be condemned and the colt killed. She will do anything to protect this horse that she has formed such a bond with, even be a slave to the Shadow Rider.

Sir Guy of Warwick has one thing on his mind - vengeance against the man who murdered his sister and her son. A prophecy has been told about a young colt with four white socks who will lead Guy to the killer, and he believes Regalo is The One foretold. No one will get in the way of his revenge, even a wisp of a girl with a spirit to match his own.

However, danger beckons from all sides and Guy, Sybilla, and Regalo are at the center. These three must work together to finally find the peace both Sybilla and Guy crave.

I have to say I was not quite sure what to expect of Shadow Rider when I picked it up. I liked the premise and the supernatural bend about a mystical horse appealed to me. As I started reading, I was intrigued. Who was the Shadow Rider and why was he hunting demons of despair? Soon thereafter I found out and I was off and running before I even got to the prophesized horse.

We have prophesies and curses, vengeance and fear, lust and betrayal in Shadow Rider. There is also the added undercurrent of mystery as Guy tries to prove who killed his sister.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sir Guy of Warwick is on a mission to avenge the murder of his sister and her child, but first, this shadow rider, a man haunted by their deaths and half dead more than alive in his soul, must discover the murderer's identity and have proof of the crime. Horse midwife Sybilla Corbuc awaits the foaling of her mare. Everything rests upon the birth --- her heart, her financial future, and indeed her very freedom. The local village priest Father Ambrose has forbidden the practice of horse midwives under the threat of severe penalties in an effort to stamp out witchcraft. When Addy delivers her foal, with Sybilla's help, it could not be worse --- a black colt with four white stockings, a devil's colt! Seeing Sybilla threatened by the local church, Sir Guy spots an opportunity to free himself from charges of theft and to achieve his long quest. The seer Lady Morna had predicted that a colt matching this description would lead him to the murderer. Striking up a bargain to protect themselves, can the birth of this mystical colt bring these two together or will one of them finally succeed in wrestling Regalo from the other's control? With danger at every corner, can Sybilla and Sir Guy protect the colt, find the murderer and keep safe from all those plotting against them?

In her second medieval historical romance, Kathrynn Dennis gives her readers a fabulous medieval tale of passionate romance and riveting adventure centered around a horse, a strong independent heroine, and a sexy, mysterious wounded hero. Sybilla is a woman accomplished in the art of healing animals and a woman bent on freedom. At odds with the local religious authorities for her power to heal animals, she has a gift that cannot be denied, especially not when it comes to care of this special foal.
