She felt his tongue gently stroke her lips...and his hands, caressing her shoulders, moved downward to mold her hips. "No, please," she said, sobbing with desire...

Beautiful Victoria Abermarle feared and fled the imperious desires of handsome Damien Carstairs, Baron Drago. But there was no escaping her own desires when she was rescued on the lawless highways of Regency Eng

I think I liked Moonspun Magic the best out of the Magic trilogy. I had liked Rafael's character in the previous book, Calypso Magic. It was nice to see that he wasn't really a pirate, but a spy for the government. While a bit naive, Victoria give Rafael a run for his money. I thought they were well matched. Since this is a trilogy, the characters from the first two books show up in this one. It is always nice to "catch up" with familiar characters. Ms. Coulter has also added in a very evil char ...more

While fleeing the advances of her brother-in-law, she runs into his identical twin brother. While trying to repair the family rift, they stumble upon a mystery involving a revival of the Hell Fire Club. The story was sweet, the sex easy to skip, and the mystery rather intriguing. The denouement was rather fast, and the quick change of the villain almost unbelievable, but it was an enjoyable read. On an interesting side note, this was the second book I picked up at the library that week which inv ...more

I enjoyed this book it had an interesting cast of characters in the story, the plot was well used in the sense that it's been used before. The middle was a bit soft because it kept rolling around the same theme. But, it had a strong finish.

Saddly as this book was sent to me (with a pile of others) from overseas it's unlikely that I'll ever be able to read the first two books in this series. They aren't even in the library!

This was a great story though at times a bit predictable, and the amount of times I wanted to reach into the story and shake Victoria and tell her to "just show him the damn leg" were uncountable.

I read this back in the early 90s and only vaguely remember Captain Rafael Carstairs. I haven't begun it's on my too-read-next table.

Coulter was rather harder on her heroines during these years. I found myself wanted to slug Rafael frequently.

The hero and heroine were okay, but the villain did some horrible things and got away scot-free. He really needed to get what was coming to him and I was disappointed that he didn't.

both the hero and villain were evil. rafe only had to dominate her sexually and all would be fine? I was disgusted by this. I tried to finish but couldn't. luckily I remembered I was reading on my kindle or I would have thrown it across the room as I have with others. just another horrible book were it wasn't rape because she climaxed. if coulter is male then this crap is exactly what one would expect from a male "romance" writer. if its a woman, the story is even more insulting to anyone male o ...more

Moonspun Magic left me uncomfortable. I want my villains get punishments, and I want my heroes to do some heroic acts instead of spending their time inside the heroines ( pardon for my crudeness ) , but I never saw a single heroic muscle in Rafael. Every single villain was forgiven and they all lived happily ever after, probably doing their acts somewhere else or sometime later. If CC wanted to end her novel this way, she should not have invested my heart against the tales of satanic acts. Who a ...more

These books are fast reads and full of controversy to keep me interested. I can't believe I am reading love

Loved the 3rd part of this trio. Especially the nod to the "Song" series and Graelam DeMorton.
Nov 25, 2012 Thenia rated it liked it
A bit disjointed at times and overly dramatic, this is the story of the good vs. bad twin and the woman in between. A secret perverted club added, whose leader is a mystery I figured out early on, and misunderstandings and highhandedness and pride that make the main hero and heroine fight quite a bit, prolonging the drama.

It has its good moments but it's not a story I would want to re-read.

I was wondering how it was that I read book 1 and 2 in the series and hadn't read the 3rd book Moonspun Magic. Now I know why I don't enjoy reading about clans and how this one was basically raping virgins. I had a hard time understanding how a father would get paid to have the gang take him virgin daughter for the night.
Nov 17, 2013 Chris rated it it was ok
Two major issues: The H spent the majority of the book proud of his ability to control his wife through sex, since wives, like children and ship crews, need to be kept in their places. The evil twin villain enjoys gang raping YOUNG virgins, but in the end he's not all that bad? What!?

Ooh, I liked Rafael. He's the good twin. Although Damien is a lovely name too. Victoria and Rafael together was sweet. The usual good HEA story I've come to expect from Ms. Coulter. This is an enjoyable Sunday afternoon read.

I have been reading books by Catherine Coulter for some time now and I absolutely fell in love with Moonspun Magic. It is a great romance novel and is highly recommended to anyone looking for an adventure.

Rafael and Victoria...and Damien...and the hellfire club. Lord, so many stories come together and it works. I swear, I love Catherine.

Typical historical. Good/evil twins. A Hell Fire club. As is typical for CC, the previous characters show up in this book.
