Book Description

Dec 31 2003
For Ryan Swan, who'd learned never to give her trust, master illusionist Pierce Atkins was the last man to whom she should give her heart. Especially since he was planning a death-defying stunt he might not escape from. But in Pierce's enthralling presence, all Ryan's defenses seemed to vanish…like magic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best work March 6 2004
By A Customer
While I did enjoy "This Magic Moment", I found it to be a bit boring compared to some of NR other offerings. Ryan and Pierce were not as exciting as some of her other characters, but it was a good read for the most part.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing "Roarke-like" Magician Makes This Book Great! March 6 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Ryan Swan (the book's lovely heroine), is a television producer hoping to sign the mysterious magician Pierce Atkins to do a live magic show. He agrees, but only if she handles the details herself, meaning lots of quality time together. The character of Pierce reminds me strongly of Roarke in Nora's other series, the J.D. Robb books. Like Roarke, Pierce has had a hard knock life and he has a very mysterious quality too. Pierce and Ryan's relationship is troubled because of the dangerous stunts he performs in his act, but Pierce refuses to give them up.
Excerpt from the back of the book:
"Abracadabra! For this one moment, Ryan Swan, you will believe in magic... If only she could. But how was Ryan ever to know if the love of mysterious magician Pierce Atkins was real enough to last a lifetime or just an illusion she'd conjured up herself? She'd just have to read the message in his eyes...
Pierce had a lot of tricks up his sleeve-and he needed all his skill in magic to get his message across to skeptical Ryan. But a message of love has a powerful magic all its own..."

1.0 out of 5 stars Republishing older books - a disappointing sales strategy Oct. 9 2012
By Constance C. Jones - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Frankly, I think Nora Roberts must be raking in enough money for her popular novels without having to resort to the rather sneaky republishing strategies of books touted as "new" - and you buy them only to discover that - gee, golly, gosh - you've read them years ago and had expected something new! Waste of money and disappointment in this author whose novels usually offer a nice little get-away. I'll be more careful in the future of pre-ordering her "new" books! Sorry, Nora, you just went down a few notches on my scale! The one star is for just this -- not the novel itself which, if not among her best, is a pleasant distraction on a rainy day with nothing else to do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Five stars April 8 2006
By J. Ash - Published on
This book combines the appeal of the wounded, silent hero, who has chosen to press on and not cut himself off, but be a selfless friend, while battling his demons alone.

Only to find the poor little rich girl, who is NOT the spoilt brat. It's very appealing that they do not have him making the mistake of thinking that she is just a spoilt brat. Insted, they both click on to each other's vulnerabilities and are drawn despite both having some impressively high walls built up.

It's unusual because the hero 'feels' like he is the most isolated, but as you read you realize that it is hte heroine who has truly carved out a lonely life for herself.

It is quiet, but sly. The humor peeks out at you, unexpected among these two somber souls, but giving you these delightful hints of what they could be if their walls were erected.

Then of course Nora also uses one of my favorites, forcing the hero reject and then suffer the full extent of his arrogance in thinking that he can turn down love in order to keep his life safe.

I'm not giving the story away, but there are a host of delightful side characters, a truly irrepressible raven and a big lug who will tug at you.

It's been on my shelf for 20 years and will never get thrown away.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Magic Moment Jan. 25 2014

Good love story but on the whole, the book was boring. Unfortunately, this
is not one of Miss Roberts's better stories. Needless to say, I was rather disappointed. Hope the future books that I purchase will be more gratifying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love is the Magic of the heart Oct. 3 2013
By huntress (Robyn U.) - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ryan Swan wanted the love of her father, but never got it. He had wanted a son. She worked hard for her father, doing exceptionally well, yet never got the praise or love that she wanted.
She went to the home of an 'eccentric' magician, Pierce Atkins, to sign him to a contract for 3 televised magic performances. He was planning on signing until he met Ryan. Something about her intrigued and fascinated him besides the immediate attraction. So he added a few stipulations. She would handle the productions and be on hand to handle any problems.
Ryan was fast falling in love with him, and his small but close 'family'. She was finding things out about Pierce that she would never have guessed about. There was a lot more to him than illusion.
I enjoyed this book. I always like romances with happy endings, but there is more to this story. I would recommend it.
