Ms. Anton does it again!! With her endearing characters, historically rich world and distinctive voice, she effortlessly transports you to a time when Knights, Lady's and honor abound.

Ever since she was a child, Emma de Leon has suffered visions. After a few traumatizing ones involving her loved ones, she found a way to suppress them. Yet the strongest vision, one of the man who would one day be her lover, has haunted her for years. When a family matter finds her at the Kings court, she at long last sees the man in the flesh. No sooner does her elation at finally seeing him crest, he is accused of a horrible crime. In her heart Emma knows he's innocent and steps in to save his life. The end result of her helpful act sees them wed by the Kings order. Emma's new husband is none too pleased with her for butting into his life, and for more reasons than just their hasty nuptials he believes there is no future in their marriage. Little does he know Emma has seen that they not only have a chance at a future, they have a chance at love.

Darian of Bruges has always been a faithful and loyal subject to the crown. So when the King orders he wed a stranger, Darian obeys without question. But he's not happy about it. Sure the woman is everything a man could want in a wife. Emma is beautiful, spirited and loving. However Darian is a wounded soul who believes himself not worthy of her. Not to mention, he's grown accustomed to his solitary life as a mercenary. Even so, the more time he spends playing husband to this intriguing Lady Emma, the more his heart yearns for the peace and contentment he feels when they're together. Will Darian be able to swallow his pride and become the man he sees in Emma's eyes?

A Splendid Medieval Read!! Nov. 25 2006

Will Darian be able to swallow his pride and become the man he sees in Emma's eyes? Or will his one chance at true love and happiness slip through his fingers?

I have been a fan of this very talented writer for years and she keeps upping the bar with each effort. No one can write medieval romances like her. She peppers the perfect amount of accurate historical details through the story to bring her well fleshed out characters to life. Twilight Magic is a wonderful, heartwarming tale that will sweep you up in the times and carry you away into a wonderful romance. Emma and Darian are delightful, and it is a pure joy to watch their love for one another blossom. I eagerly await the third book in this magical series about the De Leon sisters.

Wonderful Fantasy Medieval Feb. 19 2007
By M. Rondeau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Shari Anton once again delights her fans with the second book in the de Leon sisters `Magic' trilogy. In TWILIGHT MAGIC, Lady Emma de Leon (the eldest) has been sent to court - a virtual prisoner and shunned because of the traitorous acts of her father and brother in supporting Queen Maud. In an attempt to gain an audience with King Stephen to plead leniency for her youngest sister, she slips into his hall behind his courtiers. While there Emma sees a man whom she's had a psychic visions of for many years, a man whom she knows would one day be her lover.

When Darian of Bruges is charged with murder, he knows he is being framed but cannot produce a witness to his whereabouts. Emma knows he is innocent and in a rash move announces that Darian was with her the entire night. This pronouncement not only puts her reputation in tatters, but also finds her immediately wed to Darian by order of the King. Darian had sworn he would never marry and was bound to have the marriage annulled as expediently as possible. However, the longer the two spend time together, and no matter the vast difference in stations, the thought of an annulment becomes much less appealing.

Anton serves up this second stand alone story with liberal amounts of intrigue, danger, compassion and the right amount of historical detail. Emma's affliction of excruciating headaches were explained away in a very originally creative manner that supported the plot. Both Emma and Darian were perfectly cast and loved the witty dialogs between them. Emma knew him to be the lover of her dreams and while Darian knew himself to be loyal to his king he did not feel that as a mercenary he would be worthy of Emma. Their adventures as they battled an evil Bishop in proving Darian's innocence proving the true villain made for a wonderfully adventurous tale, and further supported a robust cast of secondary characters and one wonderfully BIG dog! This book, as stated, stands alone , but I will say that I personally cannot wait to read the rest of this series and discover what delightful adventures await the headstrong and youngest de Leon sister Nicole! Terrific read, super author!

Tepid Romance April 22 2008
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Flemish mercenary Darian is accused of murder by a powerful bishop because his dagger is found at the crime scene and he is sure to hang. But before King Stephen's guards can take him away he is rescued by Emma De Leon who provides him with a false alibi. She claims they were together all night and there is no way he could have murdered the man.

Darian is flabbergasted. He is even more shocked when he realizes that he is now forced by the king to wed Emma. He is only a lowly mercenary yet she is the daughter of nobles and of the Royal Welch house.

Emma is also surprised they must marry however she did know they would become lovers. She has visions and it was her vision of Darian that prompted her to come forward as Darian's alibi.

Darian is never comfortable with his wife's explanation of why she lied to the authorities(she says she just knew he was innocent and could not let him hang). Even worse, Darian never wanted a wife.

These two have mysteries to solve about each other and they must find the real assassin that tried to frame Darias. This takes them back to London several times and quite frankly the reader will surmise the person behind the murder before the protagonists.

The romance was okay. There was no build up to a consummation and both characters seemed so matter of fact about their marriage and possible annulment that their love scenes didn't seem romantic. Darian second guesses himself a lot but so does Emma and neither one seems overly committed to each other

"magical" medieval mystery romance Dec 10 2006
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1145 London Lady Emma de Leon is frustrated with King Stephen as she petitions him to allow her younger sister Nicole to come home from Bledloe Abbey to live with her married other sibling Gwendolyn. The monarch has no time for Emma as he is fighting a civil war.

The King's brother Bishop Henry offers strong circumstantial evidence that accuses Flemish mercenary Darian of Bruges of killing Edward de Solis. Darian provides no alibi so Stephen says he must be executed. However, Emma says he was with her last night. Henry is irate and insists she lies; but Emma describes scars on him. She knows Darian intimately though they never met before as he has been the man this witch has made love with in her dreams. He wants nothing to do with her, but Stephen forces them to marry. They flee the city for Kent though Darian plans to investigate who framed him for murder starting with which friend betrayed him.

The second de Leon "magical" medieval romance is a fun tale that hooks readers from the moment Emma speaks up and never slows down until the final confrontation with a sly villain. As with the first novel (see MIDNIGHT MAGIC), readers obtain a taste of the impact of the English civil war between Stephen and Maud. On the top of a whodunit, the relationship between the witch and the mercenary make for a superb historical as she knows he is the one and he knows she is the one he must avoid as she bewitches him.

Missing something.... Nov. 16 2007
By Tamara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I found "Twilight Magic" to be lacking in...ROMANCE! This is a romance novel, isn't it? The heroine had a vision about the man that would become her lover, and when she sees him years later she immediately jumps to his rescue - and immediately finds herself in a situation where she ends up married to him. Long story short - in a short period of time,they sleep together, they go on three journeys together, they interact and share secrets, fall in love, escape from the bad guy, and live happily ever after. Normally, this would be a good storyline; however, out of all of this drama...there is something missing.

There is a certain romantic elemant missing. There are no sweet whispered words of love. There is little to no naughty or flirtatious dialogue between the two. For crying out loud, there is not even an intense undercurrent between them. These are the attributes that make these books fun to read. Even the love scenes lacked - steam? At one point, the heroine tells the hero that she wants him to be "the stallion to her mare." I did not find that romantic or even erotic. It was just strange!

The author "told" me that there was love and passion between the two lovers, but she never allowed me to actually see or feel the spark between them.

Normally, I am not this harsh with my reviews, and I truly do believe that this author has potential - but she must remember to add romance when writing a romance novel!
