A totally new dimension to the Catherine Coulter books I've read in the past. Rosalind's dreams and songs, all prophetic in nature, lead her to her destiny and true love Nicholas. As the story unfolds the mystery becomes deeper and more engaging. We see that the bond between Rosalind and Nicholas is truly transcendent as it is only the couple's combined sorcery that has the power to save Nicholas' ancestors. Loved the way the story goes back and forth between two dimensions: Their world and a world of wizards, gods and dragons. A real page turner! ( )

Ok, beyond the way too campy dialog, I don't like the paranormal aspect. I used to really like the Catherine Coulter historicals because they were just a little campy; but this just about jumps the shark. Meh. No more historicals for me from CC...and I don't like her contemporaries much anymore either. So, maybe no more Catherine Coulter, period. That's sad. ( )

Coulter ties another thread on the Bride series, matching Ryder Sherbrooke's ward with a mysterious Earl newly returned from the Orient. Rosalind, the young woman, possesses a beautiful voice, but no memory of her past before she was found brutally beaten in an alley near the docks. Nicholas Vail is a man with a debt, although he's not exactly sure what the debt entails.

Complete with mysterious coded books, dragons, and wizards, this somewhat muddled and muddily plotted tale strays into some rather odd territory. Interesting premise, but not Coulter's best work. ( )

I haven't read a romance in quite awhile, but I've always enjoyed Catherine Coulter's work.

This story is a nice mix of historical England, myths, and magic, with romance thrown in.

Enjoyable read. ( )

Something of a departure for Ms. Coulter. Although it fits into her historical stories about the Sherbrooke family she threw in a bit of the mystical and somehow it didn't quite work for me. Not a bad book but I'd rather have read another of her contemporary FBI suspense stories.
