Product Description

Synopsis

Exiled to Yorkshire after shaming her minister father by dancing barefoot in the moonlight, Elizabeth Penshurst meets mysterious Gabriel Durham, and as they become drawn to each other, a secretive Druid cult plans to use her as a sacrifice, and Gabriel will stop at nothing to save her. Original.

From the Author

Fun, mystery, and romance in 18th century Yorkshire.
PRINCE OF MAGIC is the story of magic and mystery, ghosts and Druids, true love and dancing in the moonlight. I wrote it last year in a white hot frenzy, inspired by a visit to Fountains Abbey in Yorkshire. It's fun and sexy and ridiculous, and I hope you enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Anne Stuart at her glorious best 22 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This Georgian historical is everything Anne Stuart readers have come to count on--delicious sexual tension, excellent writing, wicked humor in the most unexpected places, a heroine we can all relate to, and best of all, a man worth of the title. Lean and brooding, tormented and irresistibly to the rescue. I loved this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!! 3 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Anne Stuart is my favorite author and the hero's she writes about are the best. She did not disappoint me with her latest PRINCE OF MAGIC. This is a wonderful book and truly enjoyable, with plenty of dark undertones. A beautiful romance, a great secondary romance, and two deliciously evil people. It also come equiped with two ghost, former monks Brother Paul and Brother Septimus. A wondufully tortured hero and a free spirited you woman. Write more stories like this one Ms. Stuart!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stuart with another historical gem!! 1 Nov 2002
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Reclusive Gabriel Durham lives in an abandoned abbey in pursuit of magic of the Auld Ways. Shunned by his family, Elizabeth Penhurst is warned to stay away from him, that he had even been expelled from the priesthood. But as she unravels the mystery of the man, she also falls into the clutches of a sinister evil lurking in the Woods of Yorkshire. Gabriel is another of Stuart's dark, dangerous, and devilish bad boys that your mother always warned you against - and you never listened!!
Gabriel, while steeped deeply in the studies of Druidism (okies skip over that...lol)aided by two priests (ghosts, mind you) has vowed to remain celibate, but as the May Day festival of Beltaine fast approaches, and a cult marks Elizabeth as their virgin sacrifice, Gabriel will do anything to save her, including ridding her of her virginal state!
Ah, what a sacrifice...;-)
As always, Stuart creates vivid character, with deep, driving emotions, that shows love can survive in many extremes. She writes with a passion that few writers can top, and rich details to historical period. Magical! Charming! Never are two Stuart books alike.
Stuart proves once again, contemporary or historical, no one does it better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Book 18 Dec 2006
By Bluestocking - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a huge fan of Stuart's "Lord of Danger" and I must say that "Prince of Magic" was not nearly as good. However, I did enjoy the book. My favorite part was the setting - the rural English countryside in Autumn. The descriptions of the landscape was lovely and it really gave a somewhat haunting feel to the story. The history was well done, and I also liked the sideline romance which always seems to take place in an Ann Stuart. However, I wasn't overly crazy about the hero. He wasn't nearly as good as Simon from "Lord of Danger". He didn't seem like he had all that much kindness to him, even deep down. You kept expecting him to do something to win you over, and it never came. He really was a little mean! Anyway, I say read the book and enjoy. But it certainly isn't her best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark, romantic and mysterious 15 Dec 1999
By Bonnie Gilbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When Elizabeth Penshurst disgraces her minister father by dancing in the wood in her shift, she is sent away to live with distant cousins she's never met. Before she leaves, she is warned to "Beware the Dark Man."
The first person Lizzie meets when she reaches Yorkshire is Gabriel Durham, expelled from the priesthood and shunned by his own family, he appears very dangerous to her. But Lizzie is drawn to Gabriel in ways she cannot explain, even though she is warned by him to be wary of even him.
Dark magic, druid cults, ghosts, dancing in the moonlight and yet another of Anne Stuart's famous mysterious men, that is the formula this novel. While a nice, fast read, I wouldn't say it's the very best. I do recommend it though for Anne Stuart's wonderful storytelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic is what Stuart Conjures!!!! 8 Feb 2002
By Deborah MacGillivray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Stuart is back again with another historical gem!!
This time, reclusive Gabriel Durham lives in an abandoned abbey in pursuit of magic of the Auld Ways. Shunned by his family, Elizabeth Penhurst is warned to stay away from him, that he had even been expelled from the priesthood. But as she unravels the mystery of the man, she becomes drawn into the clutches of a sinister evil lurking in the Woods of Yorkshire. Magical! Charming! Never are two Stuart books alike, and they always have vividly drawn characters with fast past plots
Stuart proves once again, contemporary or historical, no one does it better. Stuart creates characters they leap off the page and take a hold of you heart
