Dear listener,

Midsummer Magic, the first novel in the Magic Trilogy, was published at the end of 1987.

Philip Hawksbury, the Earl of Rothermere, obeying his father's dying wish, hies himself to Scotland to offer for one of the daughters of Alexander Kilbracken, the Earl of Ruthven.

Frances Kilbracken, informed of the earl's arrival and his mission, disguises herself as a bespectacled dowd so she won’t be the one selected by the young earl. But choose her he does, and for all the wrong reasons.

The newly married couple return to England, together but not at all happy. Philip dumps Frances at Desborough Hall, his ancestral estate, and heads back to his old life in London. Ah, but Desborough has a stud farm and racing stable, and Frances is magic with horses.

When the earl returns to his home, driven by guilt, he discovers the woman he married has grossly deceived him. What follows is a battle of the sexes that will have you chuckling, maybe even howling with laughter.

Let me know what you think of this first of the Magic novels—it’s one of my own favorites.

    " Disgusting piece of crap. I'd give it 0 stars if possible. "

    " This book is the best that I've read by this author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Benchpress | 11/24/2013

    " Your typical bodice-ripper. There are several hundred pages of the woman trying to avoid the man, man has mistriss, blah, blah blah. I found it boring and could not wait to get into a crime mystery again. I guess this is just not my genre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 11/16/2013

    " I read this book a loooooooooong time ago and remember really enjoying it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janna | 9/24/2013

    " I think I originally read this book in high school. I really didn't like the hero very much. He had flashes of kindness, but was kind of stupid. But I do like any book with horses. And I liked the strong heroine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb8coach Adams | 7/24/2013

    " I so enjoy Coulter. Stayed up most of the night Thanksgiving enjoying a good book and avoiding the Black Friday madness! Race horses and strong willed women! Can't wait to start the next part of the trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phyllis Rodgers | 6/17/2013

    " GREAT historical fiction. The storyline drew me in right from the start. Page turner right till the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 3/9/2013

    " Where was the I Love You? I need an I love you!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 2/22/2013

    " The heroine disguises herself as an unattractive woman -- and her husband believes it. The fun starts when he sees his "real" wife. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine ang | 2/9/2013

    " One of the best books I've read. This was a good one. However, some of catherine's medieval romances were quite brutal and gory. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammi | 10/14/2012

    " I loved this book when I was a teenager and now as an adult it's not the best book but I still love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 8/7/2012

    " A smidge un realistic. Maybe to cheesy for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lee Nespor | 6/18/2012

    " That's right, I read crap too. As long as it involves Scottish men in kilts with broadswords, strong willed women and a little hanky panky, I'm game. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 5/31/2012

    " this was a quarky funny book that I really enjoyed. A nice simple read, but not so simple as to lack a plot. I enjoyed the characters and the humor the author employed. sure the ending was predictable, but hey it's a romance, so what do you want! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 1/20/2012

    " Great "old school" romance from Coulter. I'm not sure why I liked it so much (some of the elements would typically work my nerves), but I liked this one from start to finish. "
