This is a delightful tale, and for me a different take on the world of Magic and aristocracy. At first, I wasn't keen on the book, but it grew on me. To keep a title, one must be able to pass a magic test. It's a cool idea. It's like title based on merit. On the other hand, what happens if someone plays foul and the victim is unaware of it? This is Felicity's story. Enjoy this story about love, magic, secrets, dastardly deeds, and smart dragons. You won't be disappointed at all.
About the book:
Little-noticed Felicity Seymour is a woman with a problem: she can't take control of her parents' lands until she can prove her magical abilities, of which she's never had the slightest hint. When she meets a handsome were-lion baronet, Terence Blackwell, she's surprised at his interest; what she doesn't know is that Terence smells the taint of relic-magic on her, the same magic that killed his brother. Resolving to learn her secrets, Terence courts the worried wallflower and is as surprised as anyone when he falls head over heels. Soon after they marry in secret, Felicity discovers that people she's trusted all her life are conspiring to steal her magic, her title and her land. Now she's got to stop them with the help of her new husband—but how much does she really know about her mysterious mate? The latest from Kennedy (Beneath the Thirteen Moons) is simply delightful, set in a fantasy-touched Victorian England that's imaginative, historically vigorous and ripe for further adventures. Felicity is a pleasantly unassuming heroine and is well matched in Terence, while the identity of the villain will keep readers guessing until the very end. (Jan.)
