Item description for Touch of Night by Carin Rafferty...
This is a reprint of Book One in Carin Rafferty's acclaimed Sanctuary series. When Ariel Dantes's twin brother disappears, she goes to the last person known to see him-Lucien Morgret, a self-proclaimed warlock. Ariel doesn't believe in witches and warlocks, but Lucien not only looks the part, he does appear to have some type of psychic powers. There's no other explanation for the strange and terrifying things that happen when she meets him. At first Lucien refuses to help Ariel, but then he suddenly appears in her home and agrees to go after her brother, but under his conditions. Ariel doesn't want to trust this sexy man who scares the daylights out of her, but if she wants to find Armand, she doesn't have a choice. Ariel finds her world turned upside-down as Lucien helps her infiltrate his coven. It soon becomes clear that the only chance she has of saving her brother is to sacrifice her soul by letting Lucien cast a spell over her. But will his spell be strong enough to defeat a rogue warlock practicing the forbidden Old Ways, or will it backfire and condemn them all to death?

This book is excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jul 18, 2007
If your looking for a book that has everything, romance, suspense, intrigue, and a battle of wits versus a battle of two male witches then look no further, this book is it par excellence!!!!!!!
This is fantastic romantic fantasy Mar 17, 2007
Ariel Dantes tried to talk her twin brother Armand from visiting with self proclaimed warlock Lucien Morgret, but failed to persuade him as he believes there is something beyond the mundane existence while she is the ultimate non-believer. Armand met with Lucien in a seedy bar the Witches' Brew in a downtrodden Philadelphia neighborhood. However, Armand never came home or contacted his sister afterward.
Terrified for what might happened to her sibling, Aries goes to the same bar that is the last place she knows Armand went to; there she plans to accost Lucien, the last person she knows of who spoke with her twin before he vanished. Though attracted to one another, Lucien refuses to get involved with her brother's potential plight as he insists Armand is an adult. Despondent, Ariel returns home not sure what to do next while also berating her self for wanting the so-called warlock. However, something must have happened because Lucian suddenly appears out of nowhere in her home agreeing to rescue Armand, but Ariel must accept all his stipulations starting with sacrificing her soul. Ariel wonders if her biggest fear is not for her brother or even her soul, but for her heart as Lucien frightens in ways no man has ever before.
This is fantastic romantic fantasy starring two terrific protagonists. Perhaps antagonist might be a more suited definition of their early relationship as the heroine distrusts the warlock, does not believe in paranormal powers, and wonders if he harmed her twin even as she falls in love with her "adversary". The story line is action-packed while Rafferty's realm sees plausible. Still the tale belongs to the changing relationship between the cynic and the warlock with souls and hearts on the line.

"Ariel Dantes was alone in the world and desperate to find her lost brother. Lucien Morgret was the only one who could help her, but he was a man of danger, a man of shadows, a man who could touch the depths of her soul. But when darkness meets light, Ariel's world is turned upside-down as she experiences things that she never thought could exist outside her imagination. And as Ariel falls deeper and deeper into Lucien's spell, she is drawn toward desires she cannot resist, even it it meanse losing her heart and soul by surrendering to Lucien's touch"--from the back cover.
If you like witches and warlock romance then you won't want to put this book down. I recommend reading all of Rafferty's books and if you know of more she's written please e-mail me! Carin Raffery's Warlock trilogy: Touch of Night, Touch of Magic, and Touch of Lightning.

This was an excellent book. She actually made me believe that there may be real witches out there somewhere. She kept you spellbound from start to finish. I would really like to see and read more of her work.
The characters grab you from the get go and do not let go!!! Mar 17, 1999
This is the type of reading I love. The story was absolutely wonderful, in fact all three books were fabulous!! I have been hoping that Carin Rafferty would follow these with a fourth book, as she seemed to leave an opening for a fourth with the young historian witch in her final book. I truly hope that she writes many more books, most especially of her witches and warlocks in Sanctuary!! Its a great read and I recommend it to all who look for that exciting page turner that just won't allow you to put it down!!! Sadly, it would seem that Carin has disappeared.....
