Alexei and Joanne must find the Cameron sword. But falling for each other was a bonus. Read this tempting tale .

I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Christina Skye. I saw this book at the Gardiner Library and it immediately sent me into memory land. I used to re-read her books at least once a year.
This particular book has all of the elements of a typical Skye book, a touch of fantasy, a little mystery and a lot of romance. This one features Joanna Russell, a woman who fixes rare and old swords, and Alex Cameron, a man who makes swords. Alex is also the Earl of Greywood and the son of a gypsy who has given

As Always C.S. never disappoints. I absolutely fell in love with all the characters and the previous history of Joanna and Alexei was just the cherry on top. There are so many mysteries and confusion and ghosts and passion that I couldn't put the book down. It's now one of my very well-worn books that I can re-read to my heart's content. Christina Skye always amazes me with her plots and ideas and I loved the idea of the Cameron Claymore and the gypsy blood. It was all so perfectly written and d ...more

Normally I give books that I abandon only 1 star, but this book wasn't quite that bad. Mostly, I just got fed up with it. It's crime is a familiar one in the romance genre, one that I have tried to overlook or forgive due to its sheer frequency, but in this case the withholding of information drove me batty. The dramatic tension was completely undermined by prominent events in the characters' background that were told out of order and with sheer melodrama.

Hmm. Can I count this in my 2012 Reading Challenge if I didn't finish it?

I got to about page 220, by which time I hadn't really developed any empathy for the heroine, any liking for the hero, or any feeling as to why they should get a HEA. But the real reason I stopped reading was the ghostly deux ex machina to excess. I don't mind paranormal, I don't mind ghosts in certain circumstances... but this just didn't work for me.
