Two superb Gothic novels: In The Waiting Sands, lovely Rachel Lord receives an urgent invitation to visit her old school friend Decima. With her husband Charles Mannering, Decima lives at Roshven, her family’s ancestral estate on the savage coast of Scotland. Rachel finds her friend greatly changed from the carefree girl she once knew. As soon as they are alone, Decima confesses that Charles is planning to kill her; that he married only to inherit Roshven, which will be his if she dies before she is 21. With her birthday only a few days away, Decima is terrified. The Devil on Lamas Night is a compelling and perverse story of human love manipulated for evil purposes. Nicola Morrison, desperately longing to forget her frustrating love affair with Evan Colwyn, welcomes the attentions of a handsome, brooding stranger who suddenly enters her life. Tristan Poole presents himself as an expert in natural foods. Actually he is a satanist, leader of a coven of practicing witches. Before she realizes what is happening, Nicola finds herself spiraled into a timeless, spaceless world of strange shapes and exquisite sounds. . . a sensual paradise in the arms of Satan’s disciples. When Evan tries to bring her to her senses, he soon becomes the object of Poole’s occult practices - while Nicola, confused by what she thinks is love for Tristan, is unaware that she has been chosen as the living sacrifice for the Devil’s black wedding mass on Lammas Night."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
