Is Her Magic a Gift or a Curse...?

All the Malcolms have some magic, but Lady Felicity's ability to read people's emotions simply by touching them or their possessions overwhelms her. She's reached a marriageable age, but how can she ever wed when she can see so clearly a man's guilty secrets?

Only He Can Tell the Difference...

Ewen Ives, itinerant rake and adventurous inventor, knows better than to underestimate the mischief of the Malcolms. But sparks fly when he encounters Felicity, and Ewen can't seem to refuse her plea for assistance...

  2. I only wish I had a magical power! So, I'm answering the second question, my favorite historical paranormal is Patricia Wrede and Carolyn Stevemer's Sorcery and Cecelia. It is such a great story. I recommend it to anyone who likes historical paranormal stories.

  3. My magical power has to be my ability to run faster than the speed of light (no sarcasm there I run a twelve minute mile, lol). I think the only historical PNRs I've read lately are Firelight and Moonglow by Kristen Callihan, although I've read a few of Lydia Dare's historical werewolf romances in the past.

  4. I would like the magical power to be invisible. This will come in handy when I want to hide from the bad guys or see what they are up to.

  6. Hi

    I do not have any magical powers, however my son would think I do because I always seemed to know what was going on :)

    My favorite historical PNR this year has been the Kristen Callihan books and I have Jillian Stone's Paranormal Investigations ready to read soon - series looks good.

  7. I would love to be able to heal. edysicecreamlover18@gmailDOTcom GFC Krystal Larson

  8. Love this! I think my favorite paranormal/historical is the Shades of Milk and Honey series. I loved both of those books with the Jane Austen - Regency era feel coupled with a touch of magic. (Twitter and RSS Follower :) )


  9. My magical power is the ability to anticipate what others in my office need:) If I could choose though it would be the ability to teleport.

  10. My magical power comes from what I learned from my grandmother and that's to cook such wonderful homemade treats that the "menfolk" forgive all my many failing! I seduce them with sweet treats and all else is forgiven!
