Uncertain Magic by Laura Kinsale

Uncertain Magic
By Laura Kinsale:

About the Book: 
Rumors of ruined maidens, coldblooded duels, swindles, and murder swirl around the impoverished 'Devil Earl.' But Faelan Savigar hides an even darker secret. Roderica Delamore longs for a normal life but fears she'll end up mad or suicidal like the forebears from whom she inherited her "gift" of sensing others thoughts and emotions. As the two find their way to each other against all odds, Roddy's growing love for Faelen may end up saving him or destroying her… A breathtaking historical romance filled with poignancy, darkness, love, and an unexpected twist of Gaelic magic…

About the Author:

My Review:
This story was breathtaking and surprising in so many ways. A stunning beginning captures you, holds you with it's deep characterization, and makes you so happy that there are 480 pages to this story. Rather than drooping around the middle, it explodes with a deeper plot that you don't really see coming. It's a great read.
