Love at First Sight

Cookbooks

In her wickedly funny, outrageously sexy debut, Sandra Lee sweeps us into a magical medieval world of dastardly schemes, daring treachery, and heady passions, where even a make-believe witch can't hide from true love's spell....Last in a line of Celtic mystics, Golde learned early that witchcraft is lucrative.  Since no man dares marry into her family, she tells fortunes and mixes potions to support herself--even though in truth she has no powers at all.  But lately it's been harder to take the commoners' money, for Golde has developed an inconvenient sympathy for their plight.  Fortunately, the rich, arrogant Baron of Skyenvic is a different story.  Suddenly struck blind, he will surely grant an ample reward for a remedy...and she won't mind taking him for all he's worth.  Now all she has to do is fake a cure and be gone before he realizes her ruse.Yet Golde's plans go awry when she arrives at the castle to meet the imposing lord and is assailed by both unsettling visions--and unexpected passion.  Soon it seems her deception will have a far greater cost than she'd dreamed...for Golde is swiftly losing her heart to a dark, tempestuous man who has even more secrets than she.  From the Paperback edition.From Publishers WeeklyThere is an intriguing story in first-time author Lee's tale of a wanna-be witch who begins having real visions, but it's overshadowed by coincidences, pratfalls and bathroom humor. In England of 1074, con woman Golde seizes on the chance to fake a cure for the suddenly blinded?and very wealthy?Baron of Skyenvic (who inspires the pun in the title). Soon she finds herself trapped in the midst of murderous schemes, even as she falls in love with the foul-smelling, ill-tempered nobleman. An otherwise witty story is hindered by circular conversations, illogical behavior (Golde continually disobeys and insults the baron even though she's trying to charm him) and a plot that too often depends on chance eavesdropping and false assumptions. Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. Review"Love at First Sight is a breath of fresh air....A wonderful, vivid tale of rollicking, romantic love set against the bawdy world of Old England.  What a fantastic debut!"--Judith O'Brien, author of One Perfect KnightFrom the Paperback edition.
