Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed Immortal Guardians series comes an enchanting new series full of romance, danger, and loyalty: The Gifted Ones

Since the day Lord Dillon earned his spurs, rumors of his savagery on the battlefield have preceded him into every room, stilling tongues and sparking fear. Weary of battle, he wishes only to find a woman he can wed who will approach him not with fear, but with the tenderness that has been absent from his life for so long. Yet only the wisewoman seems invariably at ease in his presence. Perhaps because she garners the same fear in others that he does himself.

For seven years, Alyssa has been by Lord Dillon's side, counseling him from the shadows, healing him with her hands, and staving off the worst of his loneliness while his fearsome reputation keeps others at bay. Blessed-or cursed-with gifts that label her a sorceress, she is forced to conceal her youth and the love she harbors for him beneath umbral robes that lead Dillon and his people to believe she is the same aged wisewoman who served his father.

All is revealed, however, and passions flare when an enemy threatens Dillon's life and Alyssa sacrifices everything to save him. When Dillon discovers that the wisewoman is far from elderly, he is instantly entranced. And, as he and Alyssa work together to defeat an enemy bent on destroying them both, Dillon will risk anything-even the wrath of his king-to be with her.

"Book after book, Duvall brings her readers complex, fascinating tales of romance, danger and loyalty."

This is the first mind blowing book in what is bound to become an incredible series. The gifted ones book #1 tells the story of Lord Dillon,  Earl of Westcott and one of the very first gifted ones, Alyssa. For years Dillon has conquered, won and gained lands, battles and gold but the only thing he seems unable to find is what his heart most desires, a wife. Dillon is considered a savage man and thus feared by many. Never interested to correct the rumors surrounding him, Dillon has gained many enemies and allies alike. But thus he has lost what he desires: a wife who will take him without fear, who  will care for him with the same tenderness that he does, who will stand by his side as a companion, a partner, a mate.  The only person who seems to tolerate him and treat him with no fear is the old wise woman. A woman who is constantly counseling him, offering her wisdom without asking anything in return. A woman who has stood by Dillon’s side through the loneliness, the anger, the time. No one knows what is hiding behind the cowl concealing her face. Alyssa was such a perfect character. I connected with her from the very beginning. Dillon is so focused around his own loneliness that he has no idea he is the only person Alyssa interacts with. Everyone fears the witch behind the hood but no one has seen her face. Until her loyalty to Dillon almost kills her. Dillon is shocked to discover the face of a young woman behind the cowl but he is more determined  than ever to save her. I have no words. I’m in love with this book. I already read it twice and I can’t get it out of my mind. It’s mind blowing. The gifted ones series is a spin-off from the Immortal guardians series but it is nothing like it. It’s so different. It’s basically a historical paranormal romance with two incredibly amazing main characters and more loveable secondary ones. There are many mysteries and twists around the story that will definitely captivate you. Once Dillon uncovers Alyssa’s secrets we have an off the charts hot, steamy romance but there are also many obstacles and danger lurking around.  I could talk forever about these two main characters but I’m not. Just READ it. I promise you will not regret it. I also loved Robert, Dillon’s brother. I know he is the next character that will get his story and I can’t wait. Of course since this is a series about the first gifted ones, Seth couldn’t be missing along with Marcus and Roland. I’ve said this a lot and I’m going to say it again: we need Seth’s story ASAP! Intrigue, action, suspense, gifted ones, danger and a hot alpha male a sorceress of his own has it all. Highly recommended!

Dianne Duvall provides a brand new addiction in the form of a new series that has all the magic of her Immortal Guardians series (as well as cameos from a couple favorite characters) in a whole new setting.  This story was well paced, emotional, and mysterious keeping me glued to the page.  I read it in a day, which is impressive given that I have to chase a toddler around.   The characters were vivid, had depth, and endearing with the villain being perfectly despicable.  There is plenty of room for more in the series, and I hope as well as suspect that some of the future stories will coincide with the backstories for some of the immortals from the contemporary PNR series (IG).   I’m not normally a fan of historical romance, but I completely fell in love with this one! A Sorceress of His Own is achingly sweet and left me both sad it was over and wishing for so much more in the best way.  What a fantastic start to an exciting new series!

I very much enjoyed this first book in Dianne Duvals new series. This book hooked me right away! I must admit I was a little slow in recognizing the few characters from her other series but loved her incorporation of them in this story. It is not necessary to have read her other series to enjoy this one! I love the historical romance mixed with the paranormal. Highly recommend!
