Trying to think of more details. Gah. It's definitely not something recent. Maybe late 80's early 90's and I think the cover is similar to Song in Silence the first Kerner book which is why I'm getting them confused.

It sounds very familiar! I'll take a look around and see if I can find it.

Do you recall if the girl ends up being a dragon too? Something about dragon souls living in human kids who are usually sickly and have some sort of physical mark. Hers was one green eye and one brown... I think.

Although I'm not sure if her family knows him, or maybe just an uncle.

Ding, ding, ding!  That would be "The Last DragonLord" by Joanne Bertin and the sequel, "Dragon and Phoenix", while I wait irritably for a third volume.

He's not her uncle; he's a friend of her uncle or great-uncle, a bard.  He used to tell them stories about the guy.

Ok. Here is a link to the one I'm thinking about. It was published in 1999. I loved it!

Hmm. These are actually due for a re-read!

Fantastic fiction doesn't say anything but Amazon says it will be out Oct 2010 in the Product details.

Funnily enough my Gran, not long ago, asked me to check when the third book will be out. :D

Apparently she is not a full time writer, and lots of things were going on in her personal life. She gave birth to a baby boy at 50 years of age. I think that's what I can re-call from her website. Hang, on I'll have a look.

Yup, here it is: http://www.weredragon.com/news.html

The woman - well shame on me.  I was about to say she needs to take lessons from Demeter on managing mothering & writing at the same time.  But everybody has different things going on in their lives.

I have a problem, (big news, right.)

A few years back I've read a book that I can't remember the author - I got it from an acquaintance - I remember that the title was something like "Once" and the story was about a guy who had an accident and went back to the estate he had grown up to stay in the small lake cabin. there he meets an ethereal girl, who actually was one of the lake people - not selkies, more of nymphs - and another who actually was a black witch... there is a Succubus used in the story and the end is a bout him getting the estate and going to turn it in to a kind of hospital for children.

Has anyone else read it? if so, where can I find it? Thanks guys! ;D

A friend sent me this site when I was trying to find the Kerner book. Quite a fabulous search engine:

@ white_unicorn:  that kinda sounds like one of piers anthony's Incarnations of immortality books...it's been a while since I've read them, but I think that's the series I'm thinking of.
