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.

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...

The Narration Was Problematic

The story was interesting. But the narration was so bland, the delivery of moments of high emotion failed. The voice of narrators like Moira Quirk and Xe Sands would have caused readers to burst into flames.

Enjoyable series

This is my 3rd book in the series and I can’t wait for the next one. I can’t get enough. The narrator is very soothing and I love the characters and storylines and incorporating the characters in the books
