Coerced by the Duke of Ghoulston to find one of Merlin’s legendary relics, were-panther Millicent Pantere, a shape-shifter immune to magic, must attend a formal ball in order to achieve her goal. Lady Chatterley (yes, that Lady Chatterley) supposedly has the sought-after bracelet, and when Millicent ends up being “chosen” to wear it—and treated to a night of mind-blowing passion with Gareth Solimere, a curse-enslaved knight trapped in the relic—she soon finds herself involved in a dangerous, potentially lethal situation. VERDICT Magic-infused, highly sensual, and over-the-top creative, this fascinating, fast-paced Victorian adventure has been long awaited by series fans, who will be overjoyed. Kennedy (The Lord of Illusion) lives in Glendale, AZ.
