Product Description

Synopsis

When "Mademoiselle Magda" foresees the defeat of his racehorse, Lord Kerrigan realizes that the race has been fixed and believes that the beautiful gypsy is partly responsible, but when he decides to use her to destroy his enemies, fate intervenes as he succumbs to her tender charms.

From the Author

Synopsis
Mademoiselle Magda was a gypsy fortune teller who took London by storm with her uncanny predictions. Only the Earl of Kerrigan, Alexander Maxwell suspects that she is not what she claims to be. He sets out to expose her, only to find himself captivated by the beautiful young woman. But when Magda's predictions threaten to expose a villainous plot, she finds herself in deadly danger. Now Magda and Lord Kerrigan must join forces, to solve a decade old murder.

Affaire de Coeur magazine said: "Patricia Bray's unusual characters add a nice touch of mystery to a tale of nobility. Magda endears Alexander, and she'll endear you, too. Patricia Bray is a rising Regency star to watch."

Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is even better than her first one. The secondary characters are brilliantly realized and Ms. Bray's gift for unique images that highlight the absurdities of the period is in full force (what party would be complete without a gypsy wagon and bonfire in the center of the forest that used to be a ball room?). But she never loses the human element at the heart of this romance, so we fully sympathize with the hero as, unable to admit to his feelings for Magda, he instead throws himself into solving all of her problems -- even unresolved murders from her childhood. In fact, it is the resonance between the mystery elements and romance elements that give this book its depth and structure. When he believes he has solved all of her problems, and turns out to be wrong, it echoes his belief that they can have no possible future together which, this being a romance, is obviously also wrong.
The twists and turns of the plot make for a highly entertaining read, and t! he wonderfully drawn characters make for memorable (and amusing) scenery along the way. If you like mysteries, Regencies, or just fun reads, this is for you.
