You've already met Rafael Carstairs, the mysterious sea captain who worked against Napoleon in Calypso Magic. He's a civilian now and traveling to see his twin brother, Damien Carstairs Baron Drago, in Cornwell. In the middle of a moonless night, Rafael rescues a young girl, Victoria Abermarle, from smugglers, only to find that she's trying to escape his twin, Baron Drago, who tried to rape her. What's a retired spy to do with a young girl whose nubile body and sizable fortune are threatened by his own brother? He does the noble thing, finally. He marries her. And that's just the beginning of their adventures...
Step into this whirlwind of intrigue, shattering secrets, and black-souled villains that sets brother against brother and pits good against evil. Revisit all the characters from the three Magic novels and see what mischief they've been brewing since Midsummer Magic kicked things off in 1810 Scotland. Write and tell me which of the Magic novels you like the best. Do enjoy all of them. - Catherine Coulter.

A lot of rape
This book starts with the rape of a young girl by 8 men in hoods and continues on to tell the story of a pig headed man who doesn't listen to his wife when she says no to sex. Of course he convinces her (by kissing her in just the right place) that "no" means "yes," then steals her fortune, and they go on to fall madly in love, solve the crime and live happily ever after. This is one of those books that gives historical romance a bad name. Personally? I'm not an Anne Flosnik fan either and probably would not have ordered this had I realized her nasal voice would have to be tolerated. I almost stopped listening after the first twenty minutes but decided to finish so I could honestly warn other romance fans that this one is problematic.

I had higher expectations but it was ok...
Would you try another book from Catherine Coulter and/or Anne Flosnik?
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The whole identical twins thing struck me as interesting. I think there could have been a little more to it though.
Did Anne Flosnik do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
She did a great job in making all the characters sound different but sometimes the guys voices grated my nerves. Every time she said Vitoria I shuddered and not in a good way.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
All in all I was a little disappointed with this book. Also I think the author could have used some different adjectives instead of using delicious over and over and over....
