Reprints coming of Odin's Daughter and Children of the Wind


Odin's Daughter was originally released by a very small press. There were only a few copies sold before Dawn took back the rights on this book. Copies are showing up on eBay and Amazon and elsewhere at $500-$800 a copy! While this is a testiment of just how popular an author Dawn was, please do not pay these high prices. Both Odin's Daughter and Children of the Wind will be reprinted in a few months. Until then, here is a sneak peek at the new cover.

Romantic Times' reviews - The Bride of Time


Paranormal, Time Travel
THE BRIDE OF TIME
Dawn Thompson
4 stars HOT

SETTING: 1903 & Regency England
The late Thompson’s inventive style and ability to chill readers to the bone while holding them captive with her plot and characters made her a writer to be reckoned with. In this time-travel/werewolf thriller she has perfected the formula for a dark, sensual modern gothic.

SUMMARY: In 1903, London scullery maid Tessa La Prelle is surprised to see she bears a striking resemblance to the model in Giles Longworth’s 100-year-old portrait, “The Bride of Time.” Suddenly swept into the thick London fog, she finds herself in Cornwall, at Longworth’s home, where she’s hired as his nephew’s governess. Many shrink in fear from Longworth, believing he’s a werewolf. The sudden deaths and mutilated bodies lend credence to the tales, but Tessa doesn’t believe Giles is responsible. Could the killer be his nephew? Does the boy’s odd behavior prove he’s right to fear his uncle, or is he the demon? As Tessa strives to understand the man she’s coming to love she’s drawn into a frightening, unearthly drama between good and evil. (Love Spell, Aug., 368 pp., $7.99)

Romantic Times' Review of LORD OF THE DARK


Erotic Romance, Paranormal
Lord of the Dark
Dawn Thompson


Fans of Thompson’s Lord of the Deep will recognize the world and the characters in her latest. Although well written and with exceptionally good sex scenes, the story’s characters spend more time reacting to external events rather than try to solve their own problems. The happy — and sexy! — ending will appeal to hardcore paranormal romance readers.

Summary: When Rhiannon is washed up on the shores of Gideon’s Island — the Dark Isle — the fallen angel knows he’s in big trouble. Condemned to suffer without sexual release for eternity for a sin committed eons ago, Gideon knows that Rhiannon’s beauty and innocence must be preserved. But when their love threatens to eternally damn Rhiannon too, Gideon must find a way to end his penance and discover a place where they can live happily ever after — together. (Aphrodisia, Aug., 304 pp., $12.95)
