HEâ€™S A BIKER WITH AN ATTITUDE
What woman wouldnâ€™t be attracted to Niall Oâ€™Connorâ€™s soft
Irish brogue and dark good looks? But Rosenwyn Tremain must
find her father, and she isnâ€™t going to let a sexy, stubborn
Irishman and his motorcycle distract her. Roseâ€™s intuition
tells her heâ€™s hiding something, a secret even the cards
cannot divine. Her tarot deck always reads true, but how can
one man represent both Justice and Betrayal?
SHEâ€™S A WOMAN ON A MISSION
Magic. Niallâ€™s body tingles with it when he finds the woman
snooping in his room. Rosenwyn might believe sheâ€™s a
no-nonsense accountant, but her essence whispers to him of
ancient fairy magic that enslaves even as it seduces. Her
heritage could endanger those heâ€™d die to protect, but her
powers and her passion, if properly awakened, might be the
only thing that can save both their families, vanquish a
fairy queen bent on revenge, and fulfill a prophecy that
will bind their hearts together withâ€¦THE MAGIC KNOT

Re: The Magic Knot
Hi Helen! It's a pleasure to see you
blogging here today. Of course, the
day is almost over with!
Wait, I just realized that I am actually
early!! This should be a good day.
With regards to your question, I like
both settings, but it depends on the
paranormal creature. Mystical rural
settings make me think of fairies,
elves, sprites, and all those beautiful
woodland-type creatures, whereas
dark urban settings make me think of
vampires and werewolves. One deals
more with life, and the other with
death. Unless you've got a really
sinister fairy! Julie

Thank you for taking time to leave me a comment about my blog.
You are right that rural settings lend themselves to fairies. That must be why I prefer that setting! Although I also like the idea of shape shifters in the wilder parts of the countryside. I can imagine shape shifters living on bleak moorland where no body would see them as they shifted and ran wild.

I like the rural settings too. There is so much history in the world that it is just fascinating when you can read a story that brings some of that to it.

Thanks for stopping by to comment. Glad you like the sound of The Magic Knot!

I agree with you; the history fascinates me as well. I love visiting historic houses. There are some lovely ones near my home in the English West Country. They fill me with inspiration.

Well, that's true, Helen. After all,
Dracula was in a castle away from the
village. And I do like the idea of
shapeshifter cats and wolves running
wild in the moorland. Hmmmm, next

I like your idea of using various settings for different types of special people(?) I am a little tired of being politically correct, but what do you call a shapeshifter when it shifts shape?
(Karin Tillotson 1:55pm January 30, 2009)
I guess the terminology used to describe a shape shifter and the process of shifting depends on the story. Different authors call them different things. The last shape shifter book I read was by Nalini Singh. I'm sure she had a special term for when they shift shape, but I can't remember at the moment.
BTW, if you haven't read Nalini Singh's books, I recommend them.

I prefer the rural setting. It sort of
gives more magical leeway to the plot.
Cities give a more gritty hard feeling
to a story. Lets face it, misty moors,
cobbled villages, shadowed forests
and flowered meadows are wonderful
settings for romance and magic - no
matter what the year.
(Patricia Barraclough 8:41pm January 30, 2009)
You're right. The choice of rural or urban setting gives a whole different feel to a book. I definitely prefer the mystical rather than the gritty.
