In 1659 Paris, Sir Jack Marstone rescues the muddied filthy Catherine de la Fer from assailants. She remembers little of her past, but he provides her a safe haven while she heals at least physically. When she recovers from her injuries, he teaches her how to use a sword and other skills so she can defend herself. However, his kindness and nurturing cannot protect her from the nightmares she suffers from every evening....................... Jack realizes he must escort his ward to her family and betrothed, the vile Marquis de Bauvin, but is reluctant to do so. Instead he feels a need to keep Catherine safe, something he believes would not occur if he handed her over to the Marquis, rumored to be an evil sorcerer. As Jack and Catherine fall in a forbidden love, they know that soon they will have to confront the sorcerer who plans to use her to obtain her family¿s supernatural powers that will enhance him to levels so superior to mankind they will seem like ants to be stepped on. Only Catherine the skilled swordswoman and her lover stand in his way............................... Showing the width of her talent (to the chagrin of her Regency devotees), Karen Harbaugh provides a strong paranormal romance that hooks the audience because the otherworldly environs seems so real in the author¿s mid seventeenth century Europe. The story line is the classic good vs. evil theme with the twist being that one of the good guys (gal in this case) is slated to be the mate of the malevolent menace. As she did with NIGHT FIRES, Ms. Harbaugh enchants her audience with a dark tale lightened by the goodness of love............... Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?

When Simone de la Fer reaches her family¿s Chateau in Normandy in 1793 she discovered that her family was slaughtered by the citizens who hated the aristocrats. Being a vampire she killed them all and then confesses to her priest who gave her an unusual penance. She is to rescue as many people from the Reign of Terror as possible and only kill in self-defense. Her prowess soon earns her the hatred of the board of the committee of public safety who put a price on the head of La Flamme as she is known. <P> Simone¿s path crosses that of Michael Corday, a British spy dispatched to Paris to assassinate the person who has killed several British agents and wants to bring the revolution to England. Simone hopes to redeem herself and regain her humanity and sees this opportunity by succeeding in their respective missions. Danger stalks them from Normandy to Paris and it is only due to Simone¿s powers that they have a chance of carrying out what looks to be mission impossible.<P> NIGHT FIRES is a very special vampire romance starring a protagonist who believes she can be redeemed through good works, and a hero who accepts her for what she is and falls in love with her. Readers who crave something different and unique will want to read this historical supernatural romance that is filled with intrigue and action.<P> Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
