"Especially for gothic lovers..."
Cassandra Wallace needs to get the position of student
assistant to Professor Thor Severnson, so that she can
gain experience on a dig. Without experience, her degree
will be almost worthless. In a last ditch effort to see
Thor, she finds out his home address and goes to convince
him to hire her. Her first meeting with Thor turns out to
be very embarrassing for her, but she does get to talk to
him. Cassandra reacts weirdly to a painting in Thor's
house of a lady in medieval garb-- she has a flashback.
Thor gives Cassandra the position and they, later, become
lovers. However, there is something strange and different
about Thor Severnson.
THE QUIRIN STONE was a paranormal romance with some erotic
love scenes. At first, the tone of the story was very
amusing, but, later, it became almost eery and gothic in
nature. Thor was keeping secrets and Cassandra was hunting
answers by snooping in his big, old house. I was surprised
by the ending; I really didn't predict what happened. All
in all, THE QUIRIN STONE was an enjoyable read. I
recommend it, especially for gothic lovers.

Cassie most, however, is the fact that the Duc du Maurier
doesn't just look like the man she loves. In her dreams, he
wears the same suit of armor that stands by Thor's fireplace
and he wields the identical sword.
And why is it that Thor possesses the documents supporting
so many different identities? Identities that date back for
