Hmm. Well, it was quick to read, I'll give it that. The characters were very cardboard cut-out, and I found the story a bit comic-strip, if you get my meaning. You could almost picture the film version as you read it. The villain in particular, was just too bad to be true.

I did enjoy the humour, though it only raised a smile with me, no laughs out loud. I found all the touchy feely stuff a bit too much at times. "Feeling his hot breath against her neck", that type of thing.

Anyway, a jolly romp, the type of book to take on a long train/plane journey. Not sure if I'll want to read more by this author though.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Arian Whitewood is not your typical puritan from the Seventeenth century. The daughter of a French whore (father unknown) and grandaughter of a self confessed witch, Arian has never really fitted into her God fearing community. Unfortunately after dabbling with her magic, she is spotted sailing across the sky on her broomstick and condemned to die. Bound by the villagers, Arian manages to prove to them she is no daughter of Satan by promptly sinking to the bottom of the local pond. Vainly clutching her emerald amulet she makes a frantic wish and is left startled when her normally awry magic works. Welcome to Manhattan 1996 Miss Whitewood.

Tristan Lennox, billionnaire computer tycoon is on a mission, causing a media frenzy when he announces he will pay 1 million dollars to anyone who can prove the existence of magic. Cue a quaintly dressed young woman astride a flaming (and flying) broomstick. Convinced she is a clever con artist, Tristan sends her broomstick to his laboratories for analysis. He is soon left bewildered though when Arian claims no knowledge of magic (her previous experience dictates she keep her powers secret). Convinced she will at some point slip up and reveal herself for the sham she is, Tristan invites Arian to stay in his penthouse while she accustoms herself to the modern world, an invitation he chooses not to examine too closely.

TM captures Arian's bewilderment and awe of the 20th century perfectly, and some of her scenes are very funny. However what raises this book above the norm of a standard romance are the secondary stories written into the main plot. We also have an unsolved murder, a strange disappearance and the theft of a very unusual gadget. This book was a great read and I'm off now to read the sequel Touch of Enchantment.

I sent for this book after reading the reviews (at Amazon), and found it to be unbelievably awful. The "hero" was one-dimensional, and the fantasy was too great of a reach. Ugh! I feel like I wasted my money.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my favorite Medeiros romance. It really spoke to me. How many people feel alone can see Arian and Tristan as metaphors for their own isolation and lonliness, even if they are not a witch or a billionaire. Money certainly doesn't buy happiness. Tristan who has everything except someone to make him laugh, someone to come home to, is like a child in so many ways, and not all of them good. Still he is very likable. I know that there will be women reading this book who believe that they have the power to make a man so very happy if only given the chance. We could heal the walking wounded like Tristan if he would only let us into his life. There was a lot of humor like the scene in Harlem, the totally non PC of it all as Arian tumbles through the 20th century. But I certainly can't give away all the great scenes. I think Tristan is a fully fleshed out hero. His hurts, real and imaginary, are completely understandable. Love really does conquer all. I remember a quote from Princess Diana about the lack love being the thing that is the most damaging problem in the world. This novel really shows that love is healing and allows people to deal with their pain and move forward. The love scenes are wonderful and so is the unfolding of the story overall. Okay, what are you waiting for? Order this book!

By lawyeraau HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 6 Oct. 2009
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When seventeenth century puritan Arian Whitewood, wearing the special amulet given to her by her mother, decided to try magic on for size, little did she know that by hopping on a broomstick she would travel into the future and into the life of a twentieth century tycoon.

Trystan Lennox, a paranoid self-made billionaire who had just offered a million dollars to anyone that could prove that magic existed, wasn't prepared for the sudden entry of a raven haired beauty into his life, much less one that seemed to drop right out of the sky, as Arian did.

His quest for magic, sparked by a hidden agenda, and Arian's quest for her prince charming make for a bumpy beginning to what promises to be a magical relationship, marred only by the undercurrents of the secret each one brings to the relationship. Their road to true love is destined to be full of surprises for them and for the reader.

This is a light historical romance that is light on history but heavy on humor. Therein lies its charm. Although the writing can best be described as pedestrian, the author's way of interlacing humor and romance is entertaining and is sure to delight those who enjoy light, romantic time travel novels.
