The author has painted a very vivid picture of the time period and the lore of the forest lords. The storyline is engrossing and is resolved nicely in the end. Great story.
I do not want to indicate that the writer was bad; she certainly has talent. And I did read until the end. I am just suggesting that the book would have been better suited to another genre, perhaps fantasy. I would not like to run into another like it on the romance shelves.
The young, Lady Eden is presented to a handsome man introduced to her as Cornelius Fleming, a cousin from India. He woos her, she falls in love, and he convinces her to run to Gretna with him to be married but they stop and consummate the pairing before marriage. The earl catches up to them before the marriage and through foul means manages to trick the Forest Lord into revealing his true appearance to Eden who is at once, devastated, fleeing in horror, then finds out later she is pregnant.
Eden bears the child who she is told was still-born at birth, then she is shipped off to London to an arranged marriage to a minor noble who turns out to be a rake who uses her, and gambles away all her money, then finally, taunting her that her son was alive, did her the great favor of dying. Alone, with just her faithful Aunt Claudia, Eden returns to the only un-entailed property she owns, Hartsmere. It is there she finds her beautiful son Donal and she is fully intent upon becoming a good mother.
Six years have passed, the Forest Lord, awakens and returns as well to find Eden who has just come home to Hartsmere. He also discovers he was lied to and his son still lives. His hatred knows no bounds and he will punish the woman who tried to cheat him of his child before he ultimately takes him away. Only, as he weaves his way into Eden's life, he finds that his hatred is not as strong as a very new feeling - normally foreign to a fane - could it be love?
This is the first book I've read by this author and I found it to be a wonderfully magical, mystical, and sensual read. You will feel the betrayal of the unsuspecting Eden, by those she trusted to be every bit as devastating as one could imagine, as well as being caught up in the heart-stopping, cliff hanging and surprise ending. The pace through out the book was non-stop with a wonderful cast of secondary characters adding to a complete feel of contentment over this great read! Another one for the keeper shelf!
