I bought all of Patricia Rice Magic Novels when she selfpublished them, before she sold them to Sourcebook. Except... this book, some how, went missing. So, when it was re-issued by Sourcebooks I knew I had to buy it again.

And I am glad I did.

I enjoyed reading about Ewen and Felicity's romance. I liked Ewen's chivalry, and his attempt to protect Felicity from the visions. Even when he made mistakes, he acted for Felicity's welfare. And my heart melted as he struggled between doing what he must,...more
Hermoso!!! verdaderamente hermosa la historia entre Ewen Ives y Felicity Malcolm; él súper romántico, todo un caballero y ella ni se diga, inocencia pura; es una historia que te roba el corazón, no puedes dejar de leerla y que te emociona demasiado habiendo leído las 2 anteriores y habiéndote familiarizado con todos los personajes.

Hasta ahorita The Trouble with Magic es mi favorito de la serie mágica, lo disfruté mucho más que "Must be magic", con más magia, romanticismo y mucho amor; definitiva...more

An entertaining and talented writer.
could not complete it.first of all i hate the wide eyes harmless not able to do anything for herself , naive, spirit, no chemistry between hero and heroine either...he treats her like a child..does not see his faults..not ready to do anything for herslf..god i really hated her...
and the precisely the sort i don't much like ..adores each women for her big deal will there be about the heroine..god knows he looks like he will stray..if i...more
Only two stars from me even though there is nothing wrong with this book. The characters were all good and the story flows smoothly. It is a well written book. The problem is me. I prefer more conflict between the male and female lead and a little bit more spunk from the female lead too.

This book is still a good read but I can't say that I like it enough to give it three stars.
A decent fantasy/romance combination. The fantasy element is a pseudo-magical ability that our heroine possess that provides the conflict between hero and heroine and drives the heroine's side of the plot.

Even though it's not the first in the series, it stands alone pretty well.
