"spellbinding tale of timeless love"

Dawn Thompson has to be one of the hottest rising stars in Historical Romance today. This is so good to hear. In a period when everyone else bemoans the genre is dead, Thompson is making them eat their words. She is a writer who doesn't speak down to readers, but challenges with stories that spellbind the imagination, the heart. Her debut book in Romance (she has two historical fiction works out, Odin's Daughter and its sequel Children of the Wind) was September's release of The Ravencliff Bride. It gave you the eerie qualities of an old-styled Gothic romance, yet she made the premise new again. In March, her second book came out, The Waterlord, a sensual tale of Norse lore that shows she is a force to be reckoned with. This third romance, The Falcon's Bride, will cement her as a talent here to stay, and set up her emergence as a superstar of historical romance with the Spring 2007 release of Blood Moon.

The Falcon's Bride taps into the mysterious world of the Gypsies of Ireland. Ros Drumcondra is a warrior of old...really Thea is hardly prepared by the magic that pulls her away from her world into Drumcondra's. Travelling through time to be with him, Thea finds their love is no shelter from her world or his. There is a dark evil that stalks them through the threads of time. However Drumcondra and his falcon are prepared to battle for their lives and Thea's love. It's a complexly crafted story. You will love Isor the falcon and thrill the Drumcondra's and Thea's love that defies all.

It will leave readers, wanting something more from their stories, breathless and eagerly awaiting 2007 Spring release of Blood Moon.

Very Highly Recommended

At twenty-one, after two Seasons with no takers, Theadosia Barrington should have been grateful to snare Nigel Cosgrove. The earl-to-be was a blue-eyed Adonis, a true catch-and surely the incident in Covent Garden was exaggerated. And yet, upon her arrival at Cashel Cosgrove, Thea found herself more intrigued by the Irish castle's legend, that of the tragic Ros Drumcondra. "The Black Falcon" he was called. Party Gypsy, part Celt, the warrior had been conquered by betrayal alone. His ghost was still reputed to wander these halls, making women tremble with fear and desire-for who could resist those burnished copper eyes? Hadn't he stolen away the betrothed of Cian Cosgrove, made the woman his love slave? If only Thea herself could suffer such a fate. If only magic were a reality. If only that Gypsy woman had spoken the truth, and Thea was a woman out of time, the one meant to be...THE FALCON'S BRIDE
