Calypso Magic, the
second novel in the Magic Trilogy, was published in 1988.
It is 1813 in London. The Earl of Saint Leven, Lyonel Ashton,
doesn't like women, and he’s got every reason not to. But fate, in the guise of
Aunt Lucia, intervenes. She presents him with Diana Savarol, a young lady newly
arrived from her family’s Caribbean island and very unhappy at being forced
into frigid England and tossed headlong into the marriage market.
These two very strong willed individuals eye each other,
then go for the gold in an insult competition. The earl calls Diana an
eavesdropper; she says he looks pale and unhealthy. He says she has big feet;
she says he suffers from “Charlotte’s Disease.”
When Diana insists upon returning home, she doesn’t expect
to have the earl share her cabin aboard ship. Then there’s the ship’s captain,
Rafael Carstairs, who isn't just any ship captain sailing the seven seas. And
on Savarol Island, there’s a mystery to solve and wrongs to right.
