Bewitching (Bewitching and Dreaming #1)
She had bewitched the most serious, snobbish, and handsome Duke in England. Joyous MacQuarrie...the pixie-like, green-eyed beauty had appeared from nowhere and fell unashamedly into his arms. And all that his society friends knew of the mysterious lady was that she was Scottish and that her grandmother had been a Locksley. Even her fine bloodline didn't make Joy quite prop...more
Bewitching by Jill Barnett is not a hot new book just out on the best sellers list. As a matter of fact, it was first published back in 1993. But when someone sent it to me and told me I had to read it, I trusted them completely. I am so glad I did because this book was amazing.
Joyous “Joy” MacQuarrie is a young witch who has problems with her abilities. She often finds herself having to clean up quite the mess. When her aunt is sent to America for two years for council busine...more
I didn´t get much of a the Regency feeling but I didn´t care. The H/H was well written, three dimensional and very enjoyable!
Joy, a Scottich witch, has big trouble with her magic. It doesn´t always work as she intends. The results are often catastrophic. So much so that her aunt, The MacLean, insists that Joy will go to some relatives when she is away.
Joy tries to "zap" her self to the relatives but ends up in a forest.
The book starts out with Lannie, the witch, doing a traveling spell that goes awry and lands in the dukes lap in the middle of the road. One magical mishap lea...more
Here is a spoiler: he is a stick up his butt Duke. Now he will tell you he is a duke a million times least you forget. And she is a Joyful witch. Don't worry if you forget, he will remind you that she is a witch A LOT! And oh yeah, he is a duke.
I am almost at the end of this book that I have picked up and started listening to a 100 times just to get it over with but I think I can figure out the...more
Did I love it? Not really. Did I enjoy reading it? Yes. It's an enjoyable read that is not really deep, and more than a bit predictable but I liked the female character very much and eventually came to accept the male character as the foil that helps the female expand and grow.
Here's the thing: I started to hate reading. Why? Because I stopped enjoying it just for the sake of reading. Everything I picked up had to be something that...more
I thought the characters were great, and the story was a lot more involved than I expected. It was cute without being stupid. In fact, I might have given this five stars except for one problem - the love scenes were just a bit too numerous and explicit. This felt like it should have been a sweet little romance - the graphic bedroom scenes felt out of place in...more
I could actually stand this pollyanna because she was pretty entertaining. The H however, was almost unredeemable. It may have been his yelling at her that his only mistake was marrying her. Ouch. Or it may have been his habit of becoming the cold, imperious arse every...more
Heroine is is a combination of Inspector Gadget (if he were magical and didn't have so much help) and Samantha Stevens with a touch of feisty Scottish wench thrown in.
Hero has an attitude that isn't horrible but is certainly dull and ends up making one rash decision and throwing his life into complete turmoil.
If you're into a "Skinemax"-ish RomCom... you'll love it.
Just make sure no one can read over your shoulder.
Andando oltre la copertina assolutamente inguardabile, questo è una perla di libro. E per più di un motivo. La storia è frizzante e adorabile. Qualcosa di diverso dalle solite trame trite e ritrite dove lui è un libertino impenitente e lei una dolce fanciulla ingenua che lo redime.
Jill Barnett was born and raised in Southern California, in the kind of idyllic coastal town the Beach Boys made famous. But as a young girl she spent plenty of summers on her grandparents’ farm in Texas.
A gap in jobs in her mid-thirties sent Jill back to college and working toward her Masters degree. “I intended to finish school and teach, perhaps write college textboo...more
