"an exciting paranormal romance"

Ian Olympus, whose family has ruled the mystic isle of Aelynn for centuries, must be the first Olympus to leave the isle in centuries. Because Ian can see possible future events, he knows that his future is entwined with a French woman, Chantal Deveau. Ian sees that Chantal is in some way tied to the chalice, which is missing from his island. Ever since the chalice has been missing, natural disasters have become more prevalent on the island. Ian must restore the chalice to its rightful home and hunt down a renegade exile, Murdoch, who has been causing trouble in the outside world.

MYSTIC RIDER is an exciting, paranormal romance, which takes place during the French Revolution and contains lots of adventure and danger. Ian is a very powerful ruler, who is used to being in control and having his orders obeyed. Then, Ian meets lovely revolutionary, Chantal, and gets thrown for a loop. Chantal is a little too naive and idealistic for my tastes, but she helps Ian realize that change is needed in his kingdom and really shakes things up.

All in all, MYSTIC RIDER is an enjoyable paranormal romance, which I recommend. I'm waiting impatiently for the next story, hopefully Murdoch's. Murdoch will make a yummy, redeemable hero.

A Mystic Isle Novel

Ian Olympus, skilled fighter and visionary, has left the isle of Aelynn for the Outside World to retrieve a sacred chalice. He finds it in the hands of Chantal Deveau, who plans to buy her family out of prison.

But her outrage at his demand that she hand it over is nothing compared to her powerful, sensual response to his presence—and the startling conviction that their lives are irrevocably entwined. And Ian will soon have to choose between duty and desire.
