Thanks to the author for the complimentary ARC & the promotional materials. All opinions provided are my own.
Homeless and jobless, Fenn Todd has nearly run out of hope. All he has left is his longing for horses and the strength of his own two hands. But when he’s cheated into accepting a very ugly sackcloth horse, he’s catapulted into a world of magic, politics and desire.
Fenn’s invited to stay at the black tower, home of the most terrifying man in the realm: Morgrim, the court sorcerer. Morgrim has a reputation as a scheming villain, but he seems surprisingly charming—and sexy—and Fenn falls hard for him.
However, nothing is as it seems and everyone at the tower is lying about something. Beset by evil hexes, violent political intrigue and a horse that eats eiderdowns, Fenn must make the hardest choices of his life.
Can a plain man like Fenn ever find true love with a scheming sorcerer?
One of my fave bookish things is when one of my *favorite* authors recs another—it’s like a homing beacon—so when I saw that KJ Charles & Cat Sebastian had recommended Lee Welch I was aquiver with excitement.
Seducing the Sorcerer pairs a nomadic, often drunk man who’s very nearly without hope with a court sorcerer with a real bad reputation. Or at least that’s how things start out.
One day horse-lover Fenn Todd—aforementioned man nearly w/out hope—inadvertently strikes a deal w/ a cheat who gives him a fake, pathetic-looking horse in place of the real one he promised him. Fenn, who’s a former groom, is furious & also very disconcerted when during the night the horse becomes real & flies him to the home of Morgrim, supposedly wicked sorcerer. Duh duh duhhhhh.
If you like your fantasy marvel-ous, w/ lonely characters who choose to do the hard things for the good of others & who also share urgent steamy moments bc they just can’t wait, you might enjoy Seducing the Sorcerer. The story is inventive & entertaining & has a good twist, but I would have liked a little more development of one aspect of the plot.
I’m always on the lookout for fresh fantasy with kissing & now Lee Welch is on my list of authors to watch.
