Overview

Night Falls Like Silk by Kathleen Eagle

"Edge-of-the-seat suspense . . . Her scene setting is convincing and her pacing flawless . . . Eagle enriches the romance genre."

-Publishers Weekly

His gift is a rare talent; his art celebrates an important American legacy. But it's born from a torment that might make him as dangerous as he is irresistible.

Wealthy, beautiful and sophisticated, Cassandra Westbrook collects exquisite art objects with a connoisseur's fine taste and a rich woman's whims. She always dominates an art auction-until a mysterious artist named Thomas Warrior bids against her for a set of Native American ledger drawings.

Though he's outbid, Thomas feels a strong connection to the historic artwork that embodies his Native American heritage and symbolizes the survival of its courageous spirit. He's a survivor too, growing up on the mean streets to become more famous than he'd ever imagined possible. So he's not a man to give up easily--neither on the drawings nor on the stunning woman who now possesses them.

Thomas and Cassandra are not only destined to cross paths again, but when he agrees to mentor her talented but troubled nephew, fate collides with the fierce attraction they share.

Thomas's artistic gift haunts him as his creations seem to take on a life of their own. When Cassandra's nephew and the extraordinary ledger drawings disappear at the same time, not even Thomas is certain who he really is or what dangers threaten those he loves.

About the Author

Since the publication of Once Upon a Wedding in hardcover, I've received lots of letters filled with wonderful wedding anecdotes from new brides and mothers of the bride. Most of them want to know just how much of my own daughter's wedding found its way into this book.

Here's the scoop: The devil is in the details. Yes, I said, "Don't spend a lot on a wedding. Put the money toward a house." Yes, I'm cheap. Yes, I'm addicted to E-Bay, and yes, I'm way too hands-on, love to do the craft projects myself — which doesn't save a penny, but what a sense of satisfaction it gave me. And, yes, my dear friends and in-laws saved the wedding with their late-night stitching in time. Oh, and yes, I did hitch a ride to the church on the bakery truck.

Kathleen Eagle and her husband of thirty-two years make their home in Minnesota. Write to her c/o

PW really nailed this one with their statement, "Edge-of-the-seat suspense." I hadn't read Eagle before, but this one really kept me up almost all night because I had to finish it!

In the Chicago area, Thomas Brown Wolf has become a famous somewhat reclusive comic strip writer-artist with popular characters like Dark Dog and Victory. Thomas overcame a stressful life with the help of cop Jesse Brownwolf and his wife and teacher Angela. However, Thomas is angry with his surrogate father who arrested his brother Stoney on drug charges.

Angela asks Thomas to mentor young Aaron, nephew of a friend wealthy widow art dealer Cassandra Findley. Reluctantly Thomas agrees, but hates being attracted to Cassandra, who he previously met during a bidding war between them at an auction. As Angela and Thomas fall in love, someone begins stealing her art while mimicking his comic, placing her in danger from an unknown assailant who seems to want to keep the two of them apart.

Though the twist that causes the tension is difficult to accept (0nce revealed), readers will enjoy this taut romantic suspense due to the obvious flaws of the lead duo. Angela is an interesting protagonist, having married an older man who has since died leaving her rich. Thomas displays impatience and anger until Angela begins to calm him down. Aaron is especially a solid secondary player whose artwork is as dark as they come though he is quite young. The plot implies that his mother's flirty inanity might cause the youth's somber outlook. The audience will gain pleasure with the intriguing relationships between the key players that make for a fine read.

What has happened to Kathleen Eagle? This book was horrible. It jumped around and I couldn't keep up with the main characters, the cartoon characters and/or the bad guys, so I just gave up after a few chapters. The female lead was horribly unlikeable and the male lead wasn't the usual "bold and brooding" he was just a jerk. The story never drew me in which is so disappointing because I've been reading Ms. Eagle's books for years and have always loved them. Don't waste your money.

It was hard to read the first two chapters. Where is she coming from? I have purchased all of her books, but no more. Luckily I checked the book out of the Library because several of her last few books have been just as bad.
