More About This Book

Overview

England, the Fens, a moody and mysterious land by the sea one-hundred years ago...

Coming back from taking clothes and food to one of the poorer families in the parish, Megan, the vicar's daughter, and Ivy, a servant in the household, are caught in a sudden storm. Soon the flat land is blanketed in snow, leaving the young women unable to find the road; they can no longer even see the spire of Megan's father's church. A tumble into a dyke leaves Megan soaked and half frozen. Ivy is about to leave her to go and find help when suddenly two strikingly handsome men appear as if from nowhere and help the young women back to their cottage, where they are obliged to forget propriety and spend the night.

    Megan is enchanted by Jonathan, and finds excuses to visit him, embroiling Ivy in her intrigues. Although Ivy tries to protect her mistress’ reputation, she soon becomes the accomplice to an intense love affair. She and Ben, Jonathan’s younger brother, strive to protect the lovers, and a gentler bond forms between them.

    What Megan does not realize is that the man she has lost her heart to is a Shapeshifter. Jonathan is a wild creature at heart belonging to a hidden world of myth and magic Megan can hardly believe or understand. Yet it is already too late, heart and soul she is possessed by a man who haunts her nights with a passion that begins blurring the line between dreams and reality, a dangerous position indeed for a vicar’s daughter...

    not your usual story of true love

    I don't know who the Jonathan is that is mentioned in the B&N review since the 4 main characters in this story are Megan, Ivy, Seth and Ben but other than that it's pretty true to the story. It started off a bit slow but then picked right up. The erotica was actually in appropriate places with the scenes set up, except for the first example, in a realistic manner. I had to reread this book as soon as I had finished it because I felt like I had missed something the first time through. I really enjoyed the characters and thought that they were well thought out and three dimensional. I came to care about them and would have been happy for the story to go on a bit longer.

    Review from EAA

    I¿ll preface this review by stating that I¿m not usually a fan of ¿paranormal¿ anything, least of all a fan of paranormal romances, whether or not they are erotic. I am, however, always drawn to superb storytelling and that¿s what The Shifting Heart by Bryn Colvin, a new paranormal erotic romance from Magic Carpet¿s Dark Fantasy imprint, is: superb storytelling. Colvin creates a lushness in her settings that absorbs you immediately, and she gives depth to her characters that make them worthy of your attention and concern from the opening pages. The Shifting Heart is set in an era that can best be described as ¿a long time ago¿--nowhere does Colvin state the exact date, but it¿s in a time before central heating and electric lights are supplied to poor people living in remote, rural areas of England. And it takes place on a fen. For those of you raised in modern day midwestern America, as I was, a fen, according to the Oxford American Dictionionary, is ¿a low-lying marshy or flooded tract of land.¿ The perfect desolate setting for a torrid romance between a virtuous young human woman and a sexually insatiable shapeshifter. I won¿t reveal the nature of the shapeshifter¿s affliction because I would hate to spoil any aspects of the well-executed plot for the reader. I will only say that Colvin handles the unlikelihood of her characters¿ dilemmas with aplomb. It is easy to suspend disbelief and be led willingly into the tale she tells. Beyond the shapeshifting aspect, The Shifting Heart is a tale of the irresistible pull of erotic passion, the near-unendurable weight of honor in the face of social ruin, and the madness brought on by the loss of true love by death and all it¿s unbearable heartbreak. At the center of the story are two women--Megan West, the vicar¿s daughter, and her servant, Ivy. And two dirt poor brothers, village outcasts, Seth and Ben Tuck. I will let the reader discover for herself how the couples pair off and how the romances grow, but rest assured the eroticism in The Shifting Heart is top notch. The sex is complex, passionate and emotional. Colvin¿s erotic passages are sexually explicit but handled with such an ease of language that nothing seems forced or false or there simply for the sake of having a ¿sex scene.¿ As the novel progresses, we are introduced to a second vicar, Septimus Gotobed, whose sexual explorations with his servant girl, Sarah, add a bit of humor and lightheartedness to the overall plot (until after their marriage), but otherwise, expect the eroticism inThe Shifting Heart to be thorough and to leave you a little breathless. This is a multi-layered novel with a bittersweet story of true love to tell--not the usual formulaic romance fare. I really enjoyed getting lost in it. If you¿re a fan of erotic romances, I highly recommend this book.
