A lovely lady discovers she is half-faery, created to bind a special man to the faery realm. But when he claims to love another, she defies the might of faeries to try and set him free.

The Faery Braid by Karen Harbaugh

Stolen by Faerie to increase their powers, a beautiful changeling must choose between the lure of magic and the doomed mortal stranger who calls to her still-human heart.

A faery lord is condemned to haunt the misty glens, cursed by his need to seduce mortal women to their deaths--until a simple maid defies his spell and captures his heart.

Arguably today's most skillful writer of intelligent historical romance... Publisher's Weekly, March 9th 1998

Jo Beverley is the author of eighteen published romances, both Regency and historical. She has been the recipient of numerous awards including the Golden Leaf, the Award of Excellence, the National Readers Choice, and a two Career Achievement awards from Romantic Times. She is also a four time winner of the RITA, the top award of the Romance Writers Of America, and a member of their Hall of Fame.

Born and raised in England, Jo moved to Canada in the mid-seventies with her scientist husband. She now lives in Victoria with her husband and two teenaged sons.

Jo began writing stories almost as soon as she could string sentences together, and still has a medieval historical romance written in a school text book when she was a teenager. It was only in the mid eighties, however, that things came together for her to apply herself seriously to writing, and she completed a regency romance in 1985. It was promptly rejected by a number of publishers, and she settled more earnestly to learning the craft. In 1988, it sold to Walker, and was published as LORD WRAYBOURNE'S BETROTHED.

This was followed by three other traditional regencies, then two longer regencies — the beginning of her famous Company Of Rogues series—and then she returned to her first love, medieval historical. However, an interested publisher would only buy her first medieval if she wrote a Regency historical for them as well, Regency historicals being all the rage. As she wrote the book, Jo decided she really wanted to write a Georgian, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, and thus began her successful Malloren series, presided over by the head of the Malloren family, the enigmatic Marquis of Rothgar. Jo gets so many letters from readers demanding Rothgar's story, that she has buttons saying "Waiting For Rothgar."
