I really enjoyed this title and am so glad it is finally available in an unabridged format. This is one of the older Linda Howard titles and the story is somewhat dated but still very enjoyable. Sweeny, raised by careless parents who reveled in emotional excess has worked hard to live a controlled life on her own terms, which is reflected in the delicate and deliberate aesthetic shown in her paintings. When she unexpectedly receives extra paranormal "gifts" she is most thrown by the way they have altered her artistic style. But then the psychic gifts and her artistic abilities begin to merge, and Sweeny is deeply afraid of the changes. The hero is typical Howard in that he is a strong, alpha male character who moves the romantic plot line forward at amazing speed, but he is interesting all the same. His situation adds a lot of twists to the plot and I found him to be an interesting and likable character. There are some twists at the end of the story that keep the mystery and suspense interesting. Still one of my favorites of Linda Howard's older stories.
