Lord Of The Mists
By Desiree Lindsey

   When Madeline Carlton’s father is wounded while defending her honor, she braves much to search for the healer who is said to work miracles. Against the advice of her brother, she sets out with a guide, only to be left alone in the wilderness, cursing herself for a fool. Being discovered by a very handsome man, only to be sent on her way, does nothing to assuage the fear for her father. She simply has to find the healer.

   When Dance discovers the brave beauty, he immediately tells himself to harden his heart against the fear he sees in her eyes. The safest place for her is as far away from him as possible. He is a man cursed and has watched too many die to risk giving her the help she needs. Though he has a reputation as a great healer, that power left him years ago, along with his heart.

    But when a storm hits, his companion refuses to leave the girl to the mercy of the elements, and collects her nearly lifeless body from the woods. Between them, they nurse her back to health, but the day she is to return to her family, an enemy resurfaces to threaten Dance's life, as well as that of the young woman in his care. Fearing for her, Dance locks Madeline in the dungeon, hoping to keep her safe. When tragedy strikes, Madeline risks all, to save the life of the man she loves.

   Desiree Lindsey has written a masterpiece in Lord of the Mists. I laughed. I cried and felt the pain of loss. The passion Madeline and Dance find together can only be described as beautiful. As a reader, you can't help but feel the emotion.

   This is a true-to-life romance that will melt your heart, yet keep you on the edge of your seat. It would be impossible to rate this love story, as the scales simply don't go that high.
