Product Description

From the Back Cover

HE'S A BIKER WITH AN ATTITUDE:

What woman wouldn't be attracted to Niall O'Connor's soft Irish brogue and dark good looks? But Rosenwyn Tremain must find her father, and she isn't going to let a sexy, stubborn Irishman and his motorcycle distract her. Rose's intuition tells her he's hiding something, a secret even the cards cannot divine. Her tarot deck always reads true, but how can one man represent both Justice and Betrayal?

SHE'S A WOMAN ON A MISSION:

Magic. Niall's body tingles with it when he finds the woman snooping in his room. Rosenwyn might believe she's a no-nonsense accountant, but her essence whispers to him of ancient fairy magic that enslaves even as it seduces. Her heritage could endanger those he'd die to protect, but her powers and her passion, if properly awakened, might be the only thing that can save both their families, vanquish a fairy queen bent on revenge, and fulfill a prophecy that will bind their hearts together with... THE MAGIC KNOT

Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Magic Knot is a fantastic debut novel for any fans of paranormal romance, and makes a refreshing change from the vampires and werewolves that tend to populate this genre. There's a multitude of piskies and leprechauns and other fairy folk in this book with some interesting mythology, and the romance is very nicely written too. The story is set primarily in Cornwall, and the Celtic roots are obvious throughout. A well-deserving winner of the American Title IV contest, this is well worth a read.

Rosenwyn Tremain is a London accountant, sent to Cornwall to investigate the financial situation of a public house in the middle of nowhere. She also has a mission of her own though, and is determined to find the father she's dreamt of her whole life. But Niall O'Connor, half leprechaun and brother of the pub's landlord, seems to know more than he's letting on - not to mention the beads he owns that seem rather similar to the set she wears around her neck.

Rose's character is strongly defined and shines through in this book as she faces truths she could never have imagined. Her physical attraction to Michael, the landlord, is undeniable, but it's Niall that she's drawn to, and their chemistry goes far beyond their looks. The cast is varied and impressive, but for me the one that shone out was Jacca the Nightstalker, a dark winged fairy whose morality struggle is touching throughout the book. He also reminded me rather vividly of Captain Jack Harkness of Torchwood and Doctor Who - which, for me at least, is no bad thing.

The plot moves quickly but smoothly, taking the characters from Cornwall to Ireland and showing a cast of numerous fairy folk along the way. Niall's determination to protect his sister at all costs and Rose's desire to find the truth about her parents are key, but their attraction to each other and the complications caused by that make the story even more bewitching.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Change 29 Jun 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Taylor has introduced us to a refreshingly bright and promising world filled with all manner of magical beings. While the book begins as a slow burner the action fast tears through the pages until you're staring at the end, leaving feeling happy and fulfilled, the book having done what it had set out to do.

Unfortunately, along with a slow burning beginning comes with a slow, sometimes frustrating romance between protagonists and somewhat short and less than smoldering love scenes. That said, it's a promising start to a new series that is different from all the other genre romance out there, I look forward to seeing what Taylor plans next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Magic and accountancy 1 Feb 2009
By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It's not every day you read a book where the heroine is a rather dull-seeming accountant. Perhaps Rosenwyn Tremain is a bit dull but her life changes overnight when she finds herself driving to Cornwall to carry out an accountancy check on a pub. When she arrives at the pub she meets twin brothers Michael and Niall O'Connor and from that point on nothing is the same. She feels a strange connection to Niall but he's reserved and seems to be hiding something. Part of her reasoning to visit Cornwall is to search for her father, a man she doesn't remember; however there's more to her Dad than she can possibly imagine and meeting him starts her on a quest, along with Niall, Michael and another ususual male, to rescue a whole race of piskies and to attempt to help Niall keep his sister safe.

Rose is a good heroine, a women who's fairly down-to-earth and who is able to take rather dramatic events in her stride, but a woman who also knows to focus on people as the most important thing. Niall, however, was a rather unsatisfactory hero for me; he is a bit too moody and reserved and has a dreadful tendency to not tell Rose what's going on so she's constantly in the dark. The other characters were well described but didn't really ring entirely true for me.

The setting in Cornwall and then Ireland was interesting enough although our English/Irish protagonists slipped into using American language at times, which was rather incongruous. There were some rather dramatic plot events which I felt weren't always handled very well and the central romance didn't feel particularly romantic. However the story was interesting with good pacing and the change in setting from Cornwall to Ireland was also good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me. 20 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My husband (bless his heart), read the review for this and decided to order it for me. I started to read it and couldn't believe what I was reading. I normally enjoy light romance. This was quite dark in places and not my idea of reading material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 3 Nov 2013
By Cat C
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book! I could not put it down! The story line is good but not too fantastical, with enough history and depth of the plotline to make it believable. The characters were deep and I felt I knew them well by the end of the book.
This was supposed to be a holiday read but got demolished on the plane there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect storytelling, highly addictive. 30 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Normally i'm not a huge fan of fantasy novels, and certainly not of what is generally known as 'romance' (that kind of slushy modern tale of will she, won't she) but I am fond of a bit of spookyness in a story. I was just scanning Amazon for something light to read, saw this and thought...why not?

Well, I loved it and im not ashamed to say it. The perfect combination of romance, sex, mythology, fantasy, characters you can relate to and all wrapped up in a damn good storyline. Needless to say as soon as I finished this book I downloaded and read the next two in the Magic Knot series! I am now hooked and will await the fourth book eagerly. Meanwhile I have read the other offerings from the author along the same paranormal vein and I have to say that while the Magic Knot series is by far my favorites, the others are well worth a read as well.

My only problem is that I have read through everything too quickly and am now storyless! I might just have to read The Magic Knot again. To tide me over.... untill I meet my own Nightstalker!
