"A delightful paranormal romance"

Stage magician Brandon Goodfellow is considered the best illusionist in the world. Now journalist Rose Thayer, who he has not seen in a decade, visits him to warn him that she will expose his "special illusion" in her next article for Uncovered Magazine. Brandon cared deeply for Rose when they were children until she inherited the real magic of her fairy mother at puberty while he gained nothing from his Fae father.

Brandon challenges Rose to expose his secrets without using her magic. Unable to resist the dare, she accepts though she wonders why she still cares for a person who let her down when she needed him when she first displayed her magical abilities. However, Rose leaks magic by not using it, which leads to wishes granted to humans and the attention of Queen Titania of the Fae, whom demands she come to her realm. As Brandon and Rose fall in love, he must overcome his envy of her talent if they are to make it together.

Though Brandon's whining over his lack of magic seems inappropriate as he lashes out at his beloved and is estranged from his father, this "magical love" tale will charm fans. The story line is fun especially with the shock Rose goes through when she lives without her talent (sort of like having no electricity for a few days). Fantasy romance readers will enjoy this novel and look forward to a future story starring Rose's cousin and the male Fae assigned by Titania to bring Rose to the fairy realm.

A man who longs for magic.

A woman who has it.

When they get together, it's magic gone haywire.

Brandon Goodfellow may be the greatest illusionist in the world, but he's not magician. Just ask Rose Thayer, the beautiful faery who possesses the one thing he covets most of all: true magical power. Years ago, she captivated his senses and captured his heart, then disappeared without a trace. Now, to Brandon's amazement, she's back—not to rekindle the sparks she ignited, but to expose the truth behind his greatest illusions! Still, this not-quite- master magician has a few tricks of his own up his sleeve. But it'll take more than magic to convince Rose to do the one impractical thing she swore she'd never do: fall in love...with a mortal.
