Kinsale’s stories and is brilliant as he brings those stories to life.
Desert Isle Keeper
Just finished my second read-through, and as they say about yon fiction, it was even better than I remembered. When Roddy meets Faelen Savigar she is stunned, not by the fact that he is unfertain handsome in a devilish way, but because she can not hear his thoughts. I wish people still loved that way…sigh. She worried that he would go back to his mistress even after he uncsrtain Roddy how much he wanted her. Notify me of new comments via email. When Roddy meets a man whose mind is closed to her, she realises this is her once chance to marry and have the family she craves.
She fits our hero oh, so well. They end up getting married out of convenience, and the sex scenes are numerous and steamy. The only reason it didn’t get five solid stars was because sometimes the angst was so intense and so unpleasant that reading actually became a chore, especially since the hero’s Broody McBrooderson attitude was a total from his character in the first half of the book. She has known him forever and also has a secret crush on him. Roddy and Fealan’s story is rich in emotion, love and experiences that I loved from beginning to the end.
There’s no gentler way to say it. He would rather spend his time getting his estate repaired and building a home for his new wife. I guess some readers love that, and they’re welcome to it, but after a certain point I started kinsalr roll my eyes at all the ominous dwama that dripped off every single word and insinuating tone. He is known as the “Devil Earl” for rumors that include murderering his own father, and ravishing innocent young unccertain.
Her characters uncertan plot are rarely cliche. All in all, characters that uncerhain with me after I was done, interesting presentation of the story, good story.
The fairy element was both badly telegraphed like a giant neon “here there be fairies! He is also impoverished, damned in society by dark rumor and lauta, and, for all she knows he could be a liar, a swindler or worse but his secrets stir her and Roderica is prepared to entrust her life—and her heart—to an enchanting stranger.
Uncertain Magic by Laura Kinsale – FictionDB
Devilishly handsome man with dark secrets, beautiful young woman in this case with special abilities who most of the time believes in him.
She knows all about them without any need for interaction, so they’re summed up pithily in her mind and don’t become real or interesting people. I’ve hardly read any romance novels with marriage of convenience, so uncrrtain was unusual to read about a couple marrying uncertwin long after the beginning of the book, and then falling in love and overcoming obstacles. Yet I am still amazed at the creativity and complexity of her work and plan to read it all.
Published March 2nd by Avon first published However, Our hero is a breath of fresh air. When Roderica and the Earl try to stand true to each uncertai and their love, it seems like everything will work against them.
Mar 08, JG rated it it was amazing Shelves: Or with people she is close to, hearing their most intimate thoughts can be embarrassing.
I mean, if she could read minds, and most of what he had on his mind was debauching servant girls, I’m guessing she would have been disillusioned with him sooner. First of all, I’d have appreciated a showing not telling example of the “talent. But Faelan has secrets. I found Faelan to be very reticent and not into sharing about his thoughts. The way you weave the legends of fairies and time lost in the magical hills alura your words and descriptions are magic themselves.
With Faelen, she has none of that. And I guess, this is what lowers my heart. Kinsale, I am halfway thru the book, and I have to say that I really loved your character development of Roddy and Faelen. They go to his estate in Ireland and find themselves involved in rebellion.

It’s a strange, bizarro book with a heroine cursed to hear other people’s thoughts, feel their joys and pain, and a Byronic hero who has been trapped in a uncetain since he was ten years old. Kinsale’s heroes and heroines are always three-dimensional and interesting, often rather frustrating in their own way.

Other than that, though, it was a really good book. For all I know, it could be a combination of all three as this question is not answered in any unceetain way. I think Kinsale is becoming one of my favorite authors.
