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...

Comment! But, I have a comment prompt for you.  Would having magic be a blessing or a curse to you? Why?

And, one more favor? Spread the word about the giveaway! Sure, I know the less comments means a better chance for you, but, share the love anyway? :)

I can't wait to read the responses! Good luck in the giveaway! 


  1. Having magic would be a little of both. The blessing would be by helping people & by all the good I could do. The curse would be all the fakeness & I'd probably go psycho with it. Thanks for the giveaway. Leann leamei1981@yahoo.com

  2. I think magic would be a blessing as long as I would use it to help others. Hurricanes could be turned out into an uninhabited part of the ocean, appropiate weather could be called to help the drought stricken areas. I think that it would also be a curse in that for every use there would be another area that would needy. Love the blurb for The Trouble With Magic.

  3. I think Magic would be a plus for me - especially depending on how much magic I have and what kind of skills - it would really depend on the kind of magic one would get...Thanks for the giveaway! I Tweeted and Facebooked:)

  4. I think it'd be a curse to have all those emotions floating through you, but that's my two cents.

  5. I don't think it would be a blessing for me. I could easily abuse it if I forgot to take my daily medications.

  6. I think it would be both. You could do a lot with magic. In another way you would rely on it too much and then what if one day you didn't have your magic?
    Magic could be used for good or bad. You would never know if people thought you were a freak or if they liked you. So it would have it's uses and it's downfalls.

  7. I think it could be both if used properly, but I could see how things could get out of hand completely.


  8. I think it would help in terms of seeing the truth but I also think it would be overwhelming.

  9. Having a magical ability would be a blessing for me, especially if I can control it. I'd want to have one just to experience it and hopefully it won't cause me too much trouble.
