All that Russian aeromancist Lann Dréan wants, is to enjoy a month of peace in the privately owned convent in Santiago he is turning into a home. When an American literature student walks into his library of ancient books, his holiday intentions change. The untouchable Lann is inexplicably enraptured. For all his famed control, he cannot s ...more
This is a short romance. I was surprised at first to discover Lann and Katherines book will actually be book 3. This is the taste, the prequel before the main adventure.
It’s certainly done it’s job and left me wanting more.
We first met Lann in Pyromanist. And like everyone else I was intrigued by the Russian aeromancist.
Lann finds something in Katherine he’s never found before.
Then it happened.
She moved the air for him.
Sure as hell, the molecules around him starte ...more
We first met Lann in the previous book, He’s a pilot and Russian and his talent is air.
His moniker is the weatherman and his job comes with many associated risks.
These dangers mean he feels unable to offer more than a short interlude to any female regardless of his own feelings.
For this reason, when Katherine commands his attention he offers her a short term arrangement 30 days in his home and bed before he returns her safely to her previous life.
So though this series does have paranormal origi ...more
To find out who he met,where,how and why she was special.
Only to find out i need more.....because it wasn’t enough!
But that was to be expected with the words The Beginning in the title,right?
Lann first notices Katherine at the airstrip.
She just landed after a flight with another pilot.
When she passes him,he is stunned by the effect she has on him.
He knows immediatel ...more
Aeromancist, The Beginning is a prequel novel to the second book in the 7 Forbidden Arts series by Charmaine Pauls.
We first met Lann in Pyromancist, the first book in the series, he's a Russian pilot who has the ability to manipulate air and the water, and like Joss, he's part of a secret paranormal task force. But being a part of this society comes with a lot of risks, ones he's not willing to take for anyone, th ...more
The first book had a darker tone to it and to me this one wasn't dark at all. It has that rich man/poor girl flavor to it, you know there is ...more
4,5 'HOT' stars from me
Omg i LOVED LOVED LOVED this story!!!! Aeromancist, the beginning is if i can say it the prequel
of the second book from The seven forbidden arts series and i have to say it didn't seem a prequel
at all it was like a sequel book for me. It was a very very enjoyable book.
Now lets talk about the story Lann Dréan is the hero in this book he is Russian and guess what he is an
AEROMANCIST he stays in his house in Santiago and he wants
peace for a while...scratch that,
From my understanding, Lann the main character has some sort of power relating to weather and planes. That is as far as the author goes to explain him to new readers. I never really grasped what he could do, but it s ...more
Lann Dréan is a wealthy businessman with a dangerous and murky background, who has purchased an ancient Chilean monastery to pursue his passion for old books. He is in the process of painstakingly repairing and refurbishing each delicate volume, with the intention of making the priceless treasures available to the public, when he spies a lovely redhead who has come to his library to research her doctoral thesis. Ka ...more
Five darkly sensuous stars!
What a great start to Lann and Kat’s story! This absolutely sizzles with raw need and sensuality as this couple engage in a short term agreement.
There are tiny clues (leading to what, I don’t know) dropped along the way and the potential for drama is hinted at as the promise for more between them is held just out of sight. When I reached the end, I wanted to throttle this author for leaving me craving, wanting, needing. Just because I knew this was a cliffhanger, doe ...more
Lann is an aeromancist, he controls the air. He hides for a month or two, in Santiago, with his previous books, and the solitude. When Katherine visits his library for her thesis work, she literally moves the air for him. He thought it a myth amongst his kind. When Lann offers Katherine 30 days to be at his beck and call, she doesn't refuse, but wonders will she ever be able to give him up??
This is the second in this series, The Forbidden Arts, and abo ...more
Aeromancist: The Beginning is a prequel to what it will be a full lenght story. But let me tell you that if this is the beginning, OMG! I can't imagine the rest. This was a hell of a ride, full of emotion, tension, sexiness and romance.
This is the story of Lann Dréan, a sexy Russian who bought an ancient convent in Santiago (Chile) meant to be his refuge for a month. Then appear Katherine, an american student who uses his library for investigation purpose. When these two meet, s ...more

Oh my goodness. Lann and Kat.
These two had chemistry that was flying off the pages.
The sex and desire between these two characters was incredibly steamy.

This is the second book in the Seven Forbidden Art Series and the prequel to Book 3. In this book we meet the very sexy Russian Lann who is an Areomancist (has the power to control air and water). He is taking a sabbatical for a month at his ancient privately-owned convent in Santiago where he hopes to find some peace and quiet restoring and chronicling the old books that were found in his library.
When Lann lays eyes on a beautiful red head that is working on her thesis ...more
Charmaine pens these delicious stories that grasps the reader immediately and does not let go.
I cannot wait to read the continuation of this couples story. ...more
Lann Dréan is a complex character. I liked this man very much. He can come across as cool and aloof at times but, this hides his deeply felt emotions. He knows that if he lets his emotions out, his ability to control air could cause serious damage. He is intrigued with Katherine White, who visits the ex-convent (now Lann's home) looking for research material for her thesis. Determined to learn more about her, he dangles the o ...more
Pauls continues her elaborate tale of paranormal bad boys in her Seven Forbidden Arts series. It started with Pyromancist, the story of a firestarter and now, it careens into the life of Lann, the aeromancist (the power to manipulate air and weather). Kat is a self proclaimed daredevil who is finishing her all important studies when she is spotted by Lann in his ...more
The relationship between Kat and Lann was instantly hot, but I loved that Kat was a strong female from the start, and wasn't just going to give in without at least a token resistance! There is plenty of steam within these pages, so be prepared for some hea ...more
This is book two in the “7 Forbidden Arts” series and is a prequel to the “Aeromancist.” These books are all stand alone books but they intertwine. This is labeled a novella but to me it was a full length book.
First of all, when the heroine described Lann my mind was blown I totally pictured him as something else. But as the book went on he was exactly what she said. The little bit we saw about him in book one gave you no clue of the man he is.
So this is the beginning of Lann and Ka ...more

One Month is everything you gonna get.
One Month is what you will take.
It's like a poem watching, what one Month can do to a neglected, closed-off heart, because that is, what Lann had. He closed himself off because in his eyes, he had nothing to offer. Maybe its true from his Point of view but why don't he just asks Kathryn. Maybe her opinion is different. Where he lived his life on the streets, neglected by his father, ending up in the Task Force.
