it was amazing
bookshelves: romance-historical
Read in January, 1993

From Publishers Weekly: In 1813 Alec Castlemaine, a callous English duke who compares courtship to horse trading, faces rejection from his meticulously selected betrothed, who decides she cannot live without love. That same night, Joyous Fiona MacQuarrie, a Scottish witch with faith in fairy-tale endings, messes up a travel incantation and "zaps" herself into the duke's lap. Unbelievably, she explains away her sudden appearance, and the duke, wanting to salvage his pride, marries her immediately. After she reveals her powers on their wedding night, the duke forbids her to perform any hocus-pocus. Inconveniently, she can't always control her magic.

This is a fast, fun read. I really loved this book the first time I read it. Joy is a spunky, sweet heroine who breaks through the ice surrounding Alec's heart. Of COURSE he's going to fall in love with her. There were some very cute moments and times when I chuckled out loud, and overall the book made me smile.
