Summary

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....

Good story Great narration

Quite a racy story told well. Narration was excellent. I know a lot of Greg Wagland’s work and he is one of the best. Interesting theme of witch-like craft. Well painted characters.

Worth the listen!

This one has been my favorite of the series so far. The narrator is very talented and I look forward to the next book in the series.

Just Couldn’t get through it...

I only got a couple hours in and the book could not hold my attention at all and was too slow moving...

Soft Porn foremost

Written more from a romance/soft Porn reader. If you enjoy a Harlequin Romance with light sex..here it is. Not what I expected.

Extraordinarily magical!

I highly recommend this imaginative historical fantasy, and the series in which it is, to readers who love reading and listening to hilarious and well written books. The narrator has a very pleasant voice and accent that enhances the English phrasing and the time period. Thoroughly entertaining! Enjoy!
