Spurned on to catch an international
art thief after her partnerís recent death in Chicago, FBI
Agent Chris Renshaw is setting up a major sting operation
with a new partner in Atlanta. Surely the chance of
stealing the famed and priceless prize of The Maidenís Book
of Hours, a medieval illuminated manuscript would tempt the
infamously named Magician or as Chris calls him Magic Man.
Once he was Robin of Locksley or Robin
Hood but that was over 700 years ago. These days Robin is a
semi reclusive brilliant businessman, highly successful
international art thief and Kyn. As Kyn, Robin is a leader
and controls the lives of hundreds of his fellow immortals
at his Atlanta jardin or stronghold.
While Chris and Robinís adventure is
unfolding, Lord Michael Cyprien and his sygkenis Dr.
Alexandra Keller travel to London for a meeting with the
other Darkyn lords as well as the High Lord Richard. They
need to find a way to stop the brutal Bretheran who are
systematically burning and destroying Darkyn jardins across
Europe. Left unchecked, High Lord Richard and the others
fear that the Kyn will face certain extinction.
The Maidenís Book of Hours once
belonged to Robin, reminding him of poignant and precious
memories of his first love, Marian. Robin will do just
about anything to possess the manuscript again. Meanwhile,
Chris and her team are charged with protecting the book and
using it as bait to nab the Magician once and for all.
Robin and Chris are unaware that several others covet the
book as well and will stop at nothing including murder to
possess it. Fighting immediate attraction proves as
difficult as holding onto the book for the couple. As they
chase across Europe to reclaim the manuscript they will have
to decide on where their loyalties truly lie; with humans,
Kyn or each other.
As a rabid fan of this series please
forgive me if I seem to go overboard with praise but
Stay the Night is exactly the kind of fantastic
story we have come to expect from author Lynn Viehl. The
plotline is engrossing and entertaining while the characters
are witty, sexy and smart. The pace slowly builds in the
beginning but as it gathers steam it takes readers on
amazing twists and turns until the powerful climax with some
great spins at the end. Stay the Night is
intense and totally enchanting from start to finish!
