Casablanca Classics Giveaway: The Trouble with Magic by Patricia Rice

As some of you might know, Sourcebooks has a line of books called Casablanca Classics—these are beloved books by fabulous authors that have gone out of print. Sourcebooks is excited to have the next book in Patricia Rice’s classic “Magic” Series back in stores this month: The Trouble with Magic!

Patricia Rice’s bestselling Magic series featuring the clash between science and magic has been off the market over 5 years. In The Trouble with Magic, Sparks fly when Ewen, the itinerant rake and adventurous inventor of the Ives family, catches Felicity, the most fey of the Malcolms, who is fleeing to Scotland to discover a way of ending her dangerous gift…

Here’s some more about the book and author:
August 2012, Casablanca Classics

Is Her Magic a Gift or a Curse...?
All the Malcolms have some magic, but Lady Felicity's ability to read people's emotions simply by touching them or their possessions overwhelms her. She's reached a marriageable age, but how can she ever wed when she can see so clearly a man's guilty secrets?
Only He Can Tell the Difference...
Ewen Ives, itinerant rake and adventurous inventor, knows better than to underestimate the mischief of the Malcolms. But sparks fly when he encounters Felicity, and Ewen can't seem to refuse her plea for assistance...

  3. I would love to have the power to control the weather. Then I could always have a great garden and fresh veggies and eggs on my little 3 acres.
