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..."
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.
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.
