A very sweet and romantic spin on the "Bewitched" TV series, and a true keeper. The showering rose petal love scenes were to die for. I had a little trouble with forgiving Alec his big moment of stupidity toward the end, but I appreciated the fact that his behavior was completely in character for him. For a very stuffy & conventional man, quite bewildered by the fact that he has unwittingly married a witch, he comes through when it really counts, and the reader is never left doubting that he loves his heroine very deeply.
Sensuality Rating: R
Cute book with several funny and touching scenes. Kind of a Bewitched in the regency era. Joy is the last witch of her line and has trouble with her spells; Lucien is a man who is extremely proud of his linage and propriety who can't believe he's married a witch.
Not as good as I thought it would be.I read too many reviews and it had so much hype that it didn't live up to.Cute story with some interesting characters though. If you want to read this book don't read reviews with spoilers in it.
