Product Description

DESTINY ISN’T CALLING. Kemble Tremaine is thirty-seven. He knows he’ll never get magic like the rest of his family. The Merlin gene has passed him by. No true love, no magic power to help the family in their fight against the descendants of Morgan Le Fay. Since it doesn’t matter who he marries, he asks his sister’s best friend, Jane. At least he’ll be rescuing her from a horrible home life.

CINDERELLA MISSES THE BALL. Jane Butler has loved Kemble since she was twelve years old. She’s well aware he’s not marrying her for love, but she hopes she can make him comfortable.

HAPPINESS IS RELATIVE. Comfort isn’t on the menu for the Tremaines. Kemble’s sister has been having visions of tragedy. The family finds one of Merlin’s precious artifacts, meant to increase the power of those with magic. Morgan and her Clan want it too. They can’t be far behind. Can Kemble and Jane find destiny in the face of danger and even death?

4.25 stars- NIGHT MAGIC is the fourth full length storyline in Susan Squires contemporary, adult Children of Merlin paranormal romance series focusing on the Tremaine family who believe they are the descendants of Merlin. Each descendant will come into their magic when they meet their soul mate-their other half. This is eldest brother, thirty seven year old Kemble Tremaine, and family friend Jane Butler’s storyline. Believing the gift of magic has passed him by, Kemble proposes to Jane hoping to stave of the stigma of being alone and without his inherited powers. Kemble watches as each sibling comes into his or her own magical power but the gene appears to be recessive in the eldest son’s DNA.

The storyline continues the Tremaine family struggle as their search for Merlin’s missing and powerful artifacts. But Morgan LeFay and her Clan of rival magical misfits are always one step ahead of the Tremaine family and NIGHT MAGIC finds the family not only fighting the Clan but fighting for their lives. When a golden chalice is located, right under their proverbial noses, the Tremaine family make preparations to retrieve the ancient talisman only to discover that someone already knows about their plans.

The relationship between Kemble and Jane is one of friends to lovers. Jane has loved Kemble since she was twelve years old but Kemble has always seen Jane as his younger sister’s friend and a member of the family. The pull towards one another is heightened with each sexual encounter and if Kemble believes magic has passed him by, Jane’s own hidden power calls to the power buried deep within the man that she loves. The sex scenes are sensual, seductive and passionate.

HASH(0xa3834360) out of 5 stars com/night-magic-review-interview/ My Synopsis of Night Magic Kemble has given up on finding true love and getting a power Oct. 1 2014
By Jen @ booksthathook dot com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This review is of an advanced reading copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Originally posted on booksthathook.com/night-magic-review-interview/

My Synopsis of Night Magic

Kemble has given up on finding true love and getting a power. He and his father agree he needs to move forward in his life. Impulsively, he decides to help out his sister’s best friend Jane, who has a bad family situation, by asking her to marry him. He sees her as a respectable, sensible choice. He doesn’t know that Jane has been in love with him since childhood. She agrees to marry him, mainly because she wants the security he is offering. Part of her, though, hopes he will love her in time.

Meanwhile, the family races Morgan to find the remaining Talismans. They cannot let her get her hands on the powerful artifacts. Drew has disturbing visions she can’t make sense of, yet. She fears someone will die. She doesn’t know who.

I don’t want to give away too much of the story. I’ll just say that Kemble and Jane get more than they ever expected.

Characters

Having read Do You Believe in Magic?, I was familiar with the characters in Night Magic with the exception of Michael, who must have been introduced in another book. Even if you haven’t read any of the books before Night Magic, it is easy to jump in and get to know the characters.

It is so easy to love the Tremaine family. Each character is well-developed, unique, and interesting.

In Do You Believe in Magic?, Kemble was one of the least likable characters. In Night Magic, the reader gets to see a side of Kemble that evokes new feelings of sympathy and respect.

It was also nice to see a different side of Jane. I felt so sorry for her and I really wanted her to be happy, which made me keep turning the pages.

The romance between Kemble and Jane progresses naturally. It does not feel forced or rushed. The sex scenes were hot, but not distasteful.

Setting, Research, & World-Building

Everywhere the characters went, I felt like I was going along with them. I could see each setting clearly.

The magic of each family member is believable because Susan Squires has effectively created a world where it is possible. I never had the thought that something didn’t fit in this world.

Pacing & Plot

The main plot is about the romance between Kemble and Jane. It develops in a fairly predictable fashion.

The subplot about the family’s search for the Talismans helps move the story along. Just when things might get boring between Jane and Kemble, the reader is pulled to the story of the other family members, especially Drew, who is struggling with visions she can’t decipher.

In a few places, I thought the story got bogged down by extraneous details I really didn’t need to know. As a whole, though, it moves along nicely.

The story is cohesive, logical, and well planned. All the details fit and none were forgotten.

Style & Rhetoric

Night Magic was well-written. The dialogue was believable. Her writing style is descriptive, but not flowery.

Point-of-view

Some people might not like how much the author changes point-of-view. Personally, I didn’t mind. I liked getting the perspectives of different family members.

However, I felt some of the scenes written from Morgan’s perspective were unnecessary. They didn’t contribute to the story, in my opinion. I would have preferred more mystery regarding Morgan and her lackeys, rather than learning things from her before the family knew.

Ending

The ending was great. It leaves some things hanging, but not enough to make me feel cheated. Brian’s health, Morgan’s quest for the Talismans, Brina’s loss of magic…those are all problems that will probably be answered in the next book.

Overall Opinion

The book as a whole was wonderful. If I had to pick one thing that stands out as the best aspect of the book, I would say it is the writer’s ability to evoke emotion, whether it be fear, sympathy, sadness, or joy.

I would definitely recommend Night Magic to anyone who likes characters with unique and unusual abilities in a naturally developing romance. I give Night Magic 5 stars!

NIGHT MAGIC is my first experience with Ms. Squires Children of Merlin series, an inventive take on the legacy of the wizard Merlin and Morgan Le Fay.

Kemble Tremaine is the eldest son of Brian and Brina Tremaine. The Tremaine’s have a magic gene passed down from Merlin. Each has someone out there who awakens their magic and mating heightens their senses and creates an incredibly strong bond between the two. Kemble, thirty seven, nicknamed The Prince of Wales as he’s next in line to the “throne”, is convinced the gene is recessive in him. He has no magic and no soul mate. I liked Kemble but his perfectionism and constant willingness to take the blame for everything that goes wrong, mentally battering himself with woulda, shoulda, coulda got next to me after a while.

Jane is the best friend of Kemble’s sister, Drew. Jane has loved Kemble since she was ten. Her family life is fairly non-existent except for the time she spends with the Tremaine’s. Her mother, a bitter alcoholic, abuses Jane every chance she gets.

Three of Kemble’s siblings have found their mates. He’s decided to suck it up and make the best of not having magic. Jane is a strong person who, after what he witnesses with her mom, is in serious need of rescue. He likes her, respects her, she’s already part of the family so why not move on by marrying Jane? The romance between Kemble and Jane was sincere and played close to the vest. It came across, even with the heated love scene, as sweet and protective.

I didn’t feel lost as far as the romances, present and prior, were concerned. The history of the Tremaine’s battle with Morgan and her Clan is where I felt the lack of not having read the previous three books. In all honesty, I could have done with less romance and more of the conflict between the two sides. If there are only four talismans and Morgan has two isn’t that really bad? What and where is the strategy to find the remaining talismans and rescue the other’s from Morgan? What am I missing in this battle of wits, will, and global domination, at least from Morgan’s standpoint? Morgan wants the annihilation of the Tremaine’s. The Tremaine’s, with the exception of Michael and Devin, don’t seem to be willing, or really comfortable, going there. They seem to have more of a circle the wagons mentality than a go for the jugular one. Maybe they are and I missed it. Morgan’s ability seems to make it a moot point anyway. How do you combat her magical gift?
The battle scene near the end was quite thrilling and made up for the museum debacle.
All in all I enjoyed my first encounter with the Children of Merlin in NIGHT MAGIC. Probably in the minority but I’d be happy with less soul mate romance and more Morgan Le Fay & her Clan vs the Tremaine’s.

HASH(0xa3d9357c) out of 5 stars A very good read. Sept. 26 2014
By Lynelle - Published on Amazon.com

I received the book from the touring host for an honest review.

Although I haven't read the previous books in the series, I caught on very quickly. But I do think to have read the whole series would have given me a better idea of the plot. With that said, I really enjoyed this book. The main characters were strong and believable as they discovered more about each other in a very interesting setting. Both Kemble and Jane found themselves often at a loss for words as they discovered each other as lovers and not only as friends.

When Jane found herself way to deep with all the responsibilities of watching over a sick and twisted mother, Kemble came in and saved the day as a daring knight of the past.

Both had a lot to learn, but the fact that they were willing to do so and lay aside their fears and apprehension, made this a believable story. Especially Jane's character blossomed, and you could see how this shy wall flower developed into a swan between the pages. She grew from strength to strength with each hurdle that came across her path, and the two just complimented each other beautifully. I think the house fiasco was a good evidence of that. :)

The support from the rest of the Tremain clan was really touching and you could not help but to admire this family with their unique ways. Each had discovered their own unique magic which enabled them to fight Morgan in her own quest. Their loving care a remarkable detail that completed the story.

It seems Morgan was at it again as she plotted her own plans to have her immortality. The way the author brought in her scenes kept you wondering about this woman and her plans while every one else was living their lives.

An interesting story, fast paced and well thought out to give you a few hours of relaxed reading. With enough tension to keep the pace and you, turning the pages.

In the fourth book of the series and focuses on Kemble Tremaine and his lack of magic in his late 30’s. Kemble is desperate to move past waiting for the magic to finally come. He has given up hope that he will experience what his siblings and their partner have, Merlin’s magic. He thinks it skipped him. So after dropping Jane off at her house after his sibling’s wedding and seeing what her drunken mother had done he decides take his father’s advice. How? By asking Jane to marry him. What’s wrong with this? Well Jane is a friend of his sister Drew, and he has never really felt anything for her, but he needs her stability and kindness to keep him going. What he doesn’t know is Jane has been in love with him since she met him. So he marries her with days of purposing and realizes he didn’t know what the marriage initialed when he purposed. But will it bring his magic? Will he fall for Jane? Can he still help his family find the talisman’s to prevent Morgan from taking over the world? Read it!
I hadn’t read any of the previous books before this because I received it as a review copy. Needless to say I was hooked. I will definitely back track and catch up. The mystery, adventure, and romance draws you in and makes it hard to put down. I love Jane. Very muted, shy, but adventurous and loving. Kemble seems like the to the book, no nonsense kind of guy who forgets the details when it isn’t in his terms. Very interesting match but worked. I have to say I loved the museum scene. Very detailed and the research done for this book is extraordinary!
Literary/ romance/ mystery/ action/ adventure. 18 + for sex scenes. If you like the Librarian (the movie) this book is very similar. Must read!

The sex scenes are sensual, seductive and passionate.

The secondary characters include all of the previous storyline couples as well as the entire Tremaine family. Morgan LeFay and her Clan are the epitome of evil-with no heart and no soul. We get a glimpse into a future storyline that looks to be another heartbreaking and emotional premise.

The world building continues as each family member comes into their own power and the battle with the Clan brings danger and darkness with every encounter.

Susan Squires CHILDREN OF MERLIN is a wonderful, compelling and imaginative series with romance, love, magic and drama. NIGHT MAGIC will pull you in and break your heart when one of their own fights to survive.
