A Lady and Her Magic

A Lady and Her Magic (Faerie, #1)
Today's post is on 'A Lady and Her Magic' by Tammy Falkner. It is 351 pages long and is published by Sourcebooks Casablanca. The cover has the two main characters looking at one another with the male lead Ashley being shirtless and Sophia leaning into him from above with her wings out behind her. The intended reader is female adult romance reader and it should stay that way. There is sexuality in it, in more than one scene, but no language or violence. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- Rules are made to be disobeyed...
Sophia Thorne is new to the Regency's glittering high society, which resembles her magical homeland only insofar as both places are filled ridiculous rules. Which means no matter she goes, she's bound for trouble...
And scandals are meant to be shocking...
The Duke of Robinsworth has flaunted and shocked society for years. In a moment of fateful mischief, Robinsworth encounters the enchanting and distinctly scandalous Sophia. Between her streak of magical and his penchant for scandal, they're about to take rule-breaking to a whole new level...

Review- It was a cute little romance story. Sophia is sent to help Anne, the Duke's young daughter, not to get his attention but she does. Anne is a little spoiled but that is because of how protective Ashley is of her. He is afraid that she will be killed like her mother. The world at large believes that he murdered his first wife but Sophia does not. Add meddling grandmothers and bothersome brothers, on both sides, and you have a cute and funny love story. It does not break any new ground but it does screw up anything either. The characters are fun but nothing new, the plot has its moments, and the dialog is cute. All in all a cute, quick read. I liked it enough that I will read the next one in the series.

Three and half stars out of five. I get nothing for my review and I won my copy in a drawing from Heroes and Heartbreakers blog.
