I read and review whatever strikes my fancy and many things strike my fancy. I'm particularly fond of Young Adult, New Adult, dystopian tales, and mystery thrillers. Easily distracted by the newest book in the shelf.

Sleight of Heart

Sleight of Heart - Aisling Mancy A solitary, loveless life borne of betrayal. Cursed by the biti-foki and persecuted by humans, the only respite Lord Taliesin Soltaire finds from his lonely existence is the wee palm-reading gypsy who plies his trade in the shadow of the clock tower. Talesin watches from afar wanting for a love he knows he can never have.

A love that is taboo. Taliesin is everything that Pesha should not love, yet he is drawn to the tall, pale, handsome stranger with the lavender eyes. His people would kill him, or worse, if they knew the passion that burned within him for the forbidden gadjo.

Step into the magical world of Aisling Mancy, where a lonely mage vampire and a brutalized Romani prince possessed of fire magick battle with their forbidden desires. Everything about them is prohibited in the world of man and magick; yet it is a love that is irresistible and irrevocable. Ash Mancy’s imagination knows no limits as he draws us into the world of the reclusive Romani and the mystical world of fey, vampires, werewolves, and dragons. It’s a beautifully written love story, both captivating and mesmerizing. Its classically written prose fuels the intensity of a story where emotion and passion ignite on the page.

I loved all of the characters in this story so much that I wanted the story to go on and on. All so richly developed and wonderfully portrayed that their experiences become shared moments with the reader. This is a novella you don't want to miss.
