Even her fine bloodline didn't make Joy quite proper enough to be a Duchess, but a proud nobleman like Alec, Duke of Belmore, did as he pleased Bubbling with laughter, filled with spirit, she turned stately Belmore Park upside down with merriment and strange occurrences. She might even have gotten Alec to laugh -- and to cherish her -- if it had not been for the truth she hid. Though he turned to fire when he tasted her petal-soft lips, he turned to ice when he discovered that this winsome lady was, in fact, a witch.
A witch whose powers of white magic were not always perfectly under control Too late, Joy knew she was desperately in love and that nothing could stop the course of their destiny -- the scandal threatening to destroy her and the passion that held them both spellbound in a forbidden, irresistible match of two enchanted hearts. This was a cute quick read, very Pride and Prejudice meets Bewitched But I felt like the characters weren't really well developed which is important when your lead character is a witch, witches tend to be complicated and need explaining Her Aunt, also her guardian, is randomly leaving her with in the first 3 pages, the aunt is going to America Joy is supposed to be going to Surrey but accidentally crosses paths with the Duke of Bellmore Alec , Joy ends up traveling with him and marrying him with in 24 hours of meeting him Joy is literally some woman who falls out of the sky into Alec's arms they get married and weird things start happening to them.
The story of there time together is very entertaining but it feels like it gets made up as you go along, everything from the limitations on her powers to Alec's family history Feb 23, Sarai rated it it was amazing Shelves: In Alec Castlemaine, a callous English duke who compares courtship to horse trading, faces rejection from his meticulously selected betrothed, who decides she cannot live without love. That same night, Joyous Fiona MacQuarrie, a Scottish witch with faith in fairy-tale endings, messes up a travel incantation and "zaps" herself into the duke's lap.
Unbelievably, she explains away her sudden appearance, and the duke, wanting to salvage his pride, marries her immediately From Publishers Weekly: Unbelievably, she explains away her sudden appearance, and the duke, wanting to salvage his pride, marries her immediately. After she reveals her powers on their wedding night, the duke forbids her to perform any hocus-pocus. Inconveniently, she can't always control her magic. This is a fast, fun read. I really loved this book the first time I read it. Joy is a spunky, sweet heroine who breaks through the ice surrounding Alec's heart.
There were some very cute moments and times when I chuckled out loud, and overall the book made me smile. Apr 15, Maria rated it it was amazing Shelves: I absolutely loved it! It was funny and heart breaking at the same time. I didnt get much of a the Regency feeling but I didnt care. Joy, a Scottich witch, has big trouble with her magic. It doesnt always work as she intends.
The results are often catastrophic. So much so that her aunt, The MacLean, insists that Joy will go to some relatives when she is away. Joy tries to "zap" her self to the relatives but ends up in a forest. Alec, D I absolutely loved it!

Alec, Duke of Belmore is a proud top of the ton. Everybody looks up to him but at the same time keeps their distance. Few have such cutting tongue as the Duke. When the Duke happens to find a lonely lady in the woods he of course does the right thing and takes her to the nearest inn.
From then on everything changes in both of their lives. So many things happens to them on the emotional journey they take. She to be more responsible and he to loosen up and see the magic in life. Read it if you have the smallest interest in witches or Regency but read it mostly for the beautiful love story. So, I can't tell you if it gets any better but the first half was rather boring and silly.
The heroine is a witch, who has a lot of power but hasn't learned how to use it properly. After several painful tries you would hope she stops, but no. She blunders and dabbles with the magic and makes situations ten times more awful. And after every disaster she is so sure that next time she will get it right. The hero is a rich duke, who is dumped by his almost betrothed. An old gipsy tells him that he marries the next woman he meets.
Later the duke is wondering in the forest why are you there, man? Some hours later, after the heroine has deforested the area, they are married, the heroine is head over heels in love and decides to tell her fresh husband that she is a witch. It seems quite funny, but it wasn't. The heroine was a silly goose, the hero a stiff rich snob and the whole storyline bored me. Jun 30, Stacy rated it it was amazing.

Wasnt the first one ive read but it will always be my favorite! Even my "grease monkey" of a brother in law has read this and loved it! He has a signed copy!
Ladies this is def. Theres one part Love Love Love this book! Theres one part in the book that all i have to do is think about it and i start laughing! Those who have read this probably know which part im talking about May 08, Kim H rated it it was amazing Shelves: A very sweet and romantic spin on the "Bewitched" TV series, it has a permanent place on my keeper shelf. The showering rose petal love scenes were simply to die for; some of the most romantic stuff I've ever read.
I had a little trouble with forgiving Alec his big moment of stupidity toward the end, but I appreciated the fact that his behavior was completely in character for him. A very sweet, if a bit silly with the magic, romance. A couple of really sexy scenes too. Enjoyed every minute of the two hours it took me to read it. Heroine is is a combination of Inspector Gadget if he were magical and didn't have so much help and Samantha Stevens with a touch of feisty Scottish wench thrown in. Hero has an attitude that isn't horrible but is certainly dull and ends up making one rash decision and throwing his life into complete turmoil.
I love witches, I love humor, I love historicals and apparently, I love cold hearted, unloved Dukes that say terrible things because they don't know how to love. Oct 12, Brittany rated it it was ok. Reread for the book club pick this month.
I remembered not liking it much and now I remember why. Alec is extremely emotionally abusive. Joy is intensely child like and annoying. The Duke, Alec, was spurned by his choice of bride, so he marries Joy upon meeting her and learning she had an acceptable background. I still don't like a bunch of rampant not needed sex, but Hey I'm a prude. Anyway I do think though the potential for the books to be cool is certainly there. The fact that mythological creatures run rampant on this cozy island is an interesting concept. Honestly I would be okay looking into getting book two which now comes out soon.
I gave this book a three out of five stars because Well it's sorta cozy, but way sexy. So that's middle ground. Feb 10, Melissa rated it it was amazing. I received a copy of this book for review.
It's called "Bewitching Bedlam ," aptly named after the town and owners. Three satyr brothers, owners of the Heart's Desire Inn, are none too happy with the supposed competition , and im I received a copy of this book for review. Three satyr brothers, owners of the Heart's Desire Inn, are none too happy with the supposed competition , and immediately start to slander Maddy's establishment and her.
Add in Rachel, Aegis' vampire ex - girlfriend who wants to change that status, the body of Maddy's friend and coven mate found in her backyard, and things get sticky My only issue with it is that it's over Feb 07, Casey Anderson rated it liked it. Not one of my favorite of her books for sure. I do love Bubba though, it's a cool concept. The character build is not bad. I'm not really sure of the over arching story though. I just don't quite get what it is. And unfortunately the main character is one of my least favorite. She got a little better by the end but she's kind of annoying. One of my favorite things about her books is usually that the main female protagonists can kick butt and take names.

This girl is like your standard damsel in Not one of my favorite of her books for sure. This girl is like your standard damsel in distress. She doesn't basically nothing for herself. It tells stories of a past where she did, but here she's always hiding or waiting to be rescued or just throwing hissy fits. All that aside, I know this author is a good one so I will read the next and hope it gets better.

Galenorn introduces us to Maudlin Maddy Gallowglass, a witch, looking to start a peaceful life as the hostess of a bed and breakfast in the northwestern town of Bedlam. She quickly learns that her plans will not go as smoothly as she hopes. We meet quite a few unique characters, some you love and some lets just say, are unforgettable.
Without giving the story-line away I will say that there is much to learn about Maddy this time around. My desire will light the fire of love on your skin. Your hands tend me like precious embers and I will give myself to you.
