Katherine Kingsley

In the Wake of the Wind

The national bestselling author delivers a Regency romance with “a memorable heroine, steamy lovemaking and delightful scenes involving white magic” (Publishers Weekly).
During her years of exile in Wales, Serafina’s only solace has been the golden-haired lover who has haunted her dreams. She even convinced herself that he must be the man she is set to marry the next day. But during a moonlight walk in the woods she comes across a dark stranger who shatters her hopes with a kiss and a devastating revelation of the feelings of her betrothed.
Preparing to marry a woman he doesn’t know, Aiden Delaware, Earl of Aubrey, seeks solace in the woods, stumbling upon a maiden as beautiful as a fairy queen. He tells her his darkest secret: He already despises his betrothed and has no wish to be forced into an arranged marriage.
The next day, Aiden learns the shocking truth: The beauty from the woods he’d loved at first sight turns out to be the unwanted fiancée, who now knows his true feelings. Despite this inauspicious beginning, Aiden and Serafina gradually discover that marriage is more than a contract, and love can span more than a lifetime.
“Kingsley has done an excellent job of bringing us two wonderful lovers and a cast of secondary characters you can sink your teeth into.” —Rendezvous
“Another dreamspun romance . . . Once more Katherine Kingsley works her magic . . . in a story that lifts your heart and makes your soul sing.” —Romantic Times

    Not only is Serafina innocent of any wrongdoing, but she also doesn’t subscribe to your brand of hellfire and damnation.

    He cared about what she thought of him, a dangerous thing in itself. He wanted her to like him as much as he liked her, a fool’s mission. He wanted her to smile at him again, that sweet, wide, gamine smile, to hear her bright laughter, to see her eyes light up with amusement at some ridiculous comment he made.
  • Sofiahas quoted3 years ago
    this was a different kind of hunger, born not just from strong physical attraction but also from some nameless longing that struck a chord deep in his being, as if it had always been there, but he had never known it.

    That alone was enough to scare him out of his wits, but apparently not enough to stop him.
