Cornwall, England

Midsummer’s Eve, 1815

On the run from her father, Lady Rebecca ‘Becca’ Gildersleeve’s carriage is now in jeopardy on the edge of a steep gorge, when a tree struck by lightening falls and blocks it path, spooking the horses. She is rescued just in the nick of time by a handsome and eloquent nobleman and yet, there is something very unusual about his person. Becca will take refuge with this man, and in doing so; her normal, mundane life will be forever changed within her rescuer’s mysterious embrace.

Becca is fleeing from her father, who has gambled away most of their fortune. To suffice his outstanding debts, he has betrothed her to a fat, older, unkempt man, who turns Becca’s stomach. On the run with only her abigail in tow, she will be rescued and taken in by a foreign nobleman. She is strangely attracted to his unusual persona from the moment she lays eyes on him. He beckons to her very soul, like that of a siren to an unsuspecting sailor. What is it about this man with his fluid graces that attracts Becca? Is he really there to help her or will he lead her down a path for a darker, more sinister reason?

The Waterlord is by author Dawn Thompson. What a wonderful wet and treacherous course this tale unfolds upon! It will completely and utterly immerse the readers into its depths. The magic and mayhem written within this novel is quite extraordinary. From cover to cover this book is like a livewire sending out charges, keeping the reader's attention focused on the pages for which it plays out. The premise is like no other, unique and fresh as the first falling of snow on a winter’s morn. Something the field of paranormal romance is in great need of — totally new. Ms. Thompson’s elegant and yet, torrid voice is exceptional. Her descriptions paint a perfect picture for the readers to dwell within along side the characters themselves. Ms. Thompson should be on every paranormal lover’s auto-buy list.

The Waterlord by Dawn Thompson is a do-not-miss read! It is innovative and will enthrall you, like the magic it's written about. This reviewer loved this book and so will you!
