Publisher's Summary

Lay siege…. Sent to execute the king’s cryptic command to destroy an evil sorcerer, capture his castle, and take his daughter to wife, Alain De Crency expects a hard siege. Instead, the castle is undefended, the daughter vanished, and the sorcerer dead, shrouded in a purple cloak. Alain lays claim to the cloak and searches for the missing daughter. But soon he faces a new dilemma: How can he marry the missing lady when a beautiful, evasive servant has captured his desire?

To her heart…. Melisande’s only hope to save her people is the Norman knight sent by the king. But that hope may be dashed when her evil father’s magic reaches beyond the grave: The poisonous dye of the cloak is killing Alain, just as it had slain her mother. To save Alain from the cloak’s enthralling spell, Melisande disguises herself as the servant Edyt and walks a fine line between death and desire, for if her terrible secrets are exposed, she’ll be executed by the very man who has stolen her heart.

    Story
    "Where's the Logic"

    The story was well written and it did not confuse me, but I couldn't agree with the logic. It seemed like the main female character was creating most of the trouble and yet she "didn't want trouble". If the main female character wanted the main male character to stay and govern and help her people, why did she allow him to be poisoned by arsenic through over 3/4ths of the book and then she gets upset when he thinks she was the one who did it. She didn't want to marry him so she hid herself with the servants, but she kept doing things to come to his attention. That's the problem with a lot of historical romances. If they are not written with some style and care, they tend to portray the female character as a dramatic ditz with very poor common sense and become bland, overdone, or just annoying.

    Would you try another book from Delle Jacobs and/or Michael Page?

    Yes I always try more than once


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The whole story just seamed to blend together

    Story
    "Narrator ruins it for me!"
    What would have made Fire Dance better?

    Another performer


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I have no idea... I didn't make it that far.


    What didn’t you like about Michael Page’s performance?

    He should work on his delivery. He reads very well and has a nice voice but he somehow manages to make the hero sound like a pompous a$$ and the heroine like a weak ninny. He completely fails to establish the hero's sense of humor or kindness. Don't even get me started on the heroin's voice!


    Any additional comments?

    I was a bit dissapointed. This might have been a good book had I been reading the paperback version.

    Story
    "Not as good as Loki's Daughter"
    Any additional comments?

    This was just OK..I read Loki's Daughter by the same author so I thought maybe this would be as good. The story line was very convoluted ......too many strange twists and stupid misunderstandings, Just tell him that his shroud is poison already!!! Chapter and chapter of her keeping things from him even when he's proven to be a good guy. Why would you not at least try to explain that it is what is making him sick??? So ridiculous!
