That took a bit of a twist I didn't expect. This one is fun and takes you right back to 1680, even if you do put it down. Highly recommended. for an action packed sometimes erotic romance ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0821754149, Mass Market Paperback)

Good news! Zebra Books is reissuing the early Shannon Drake classics. Fans will recognize Shannon (who also writes as Heather Graham and Heather Graham Possezzere) and her husband Dennis on the cover. This is the second time the couple have posed for one of Shannon's books. Beautifully written and incredibly complex, Ondine is set in England during the reign of Charles II. It offers readers everything from political intrigue, divided loyalties, treachery, and revenge, to sweet love and stronger bonds while weaving throughout the mythology of the undine water nymph as well as articulating the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale.
