Review: A Lady and her Magic - Tammy Falkner


A Lady and Her Magic
Rules Are Made To Be Disobeyed...
Sophia Thorne is new to the Regency's glittering high society, which resembles her magical homeland only insofar as both places are filled with ridiculous rules. Which means no matter where she goes, she's bound for trouble...

And Scandals Are Meant To Be Shocking...
The Duke of Robinsworth has flaunted and shocked society for years. In a moment of fateful mischief, Robinsworth encounters the enchanting and distinctly scandalous Sophia. Between her streak of magical mischief and his penchant for scandal, they're about to take rule-breaking to a whole new level...

My thoughts:
Cute is the word. What else to expect when Fairy (and then I mean wings and all) meets a handsome, brooding duke.

Sophia was a breath of fresh air, she was fun, sweet and not always thinking where her feet took her. She was just cute. She is also a fairy with a mission.

Our handsome duke is a recluse as everyone things he killed his wife..and he also says this on the first page. So I did wonder about that, but he was so nice and all so of course couldn't he have killed her. Well this at least I hoped.

Together they are not so proper. She is not bound by the ton's rules (just by fairy rules which she breaks too). And he feels alive for the first time since his wife's death. They were cute and passionate.

It was amusing and different. A paranormal romance in a historical setting. A fun sweet story about loosing your head and heart. 

Conclusion: 
I did not want to put it down after having started it.

Who is a bad fairy now? Wait until I get my swat and beat the fairy dust out of your stupid wings!

Cute! Fairies in the Regency era. I love the sprinkling of fairy dust on the cover.

I tend to shy away from these type of novels, but then enjoy them when I read them! Got to get over my reluctance.

Staci said...

Not wanting to put it down once started is a good recommendation!!

I've never encountered a Regency romance with a fairy twist. Cute combination.

Mari said...

I was captured already by the cover and after reading your review I'm sure that I want to read this book. Not my typical read but what can I say, I love a rule breaker as long as you describe it as cute ;)

Melliane said...

Oh nice, I was curious about this one as soon as I saw the great cover. And well I love fairies, so it's a plus.

I love fairies and I do think they should be cute love stories. There are certain books that I just want to be sweet and easy to read :)

brandileigh2003 said...

I like her dress on the cover, and think that cute probably
is a great description.

A good beating might be exactly what she needs then ;p
