Casablanca Classics: Bringing Books Back And A Giveaway
Don’t you just hate it when you discover a ‘new-to-you’ author and search for their books only to find out they’re out of print?
Well, Sourcebooks has created a line of books called Casablanca Classics - these are beloved books by fabulous authors that have gone out of print and they are returning them to print. One such book is THE TROUBLE WITH MAGIC by Patricia Rice, part of her classic Magic series that is returning to stores this month. 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…
I am delighted to be able to offer 1 copy of THE TROUBLE WITH MAGIC here today, thanks to the lovely Danielle and Sourcebooks. The giveaway is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada only. To enter the giveaway, just let a comment answering one of the following questions or anything related to magic. Be sure to leave your email address with your comment, if it’s not included in your profile. The deadline to enter is 8 p.m. (EST) Saturday, Aug. 25. Now the questions:
* What magical power would you have if you could choose? * What is your favorite magical story? * Are there different forms of magic- real, emotions, spiritual, make-believe? * What do you consider magic?
Even if you don’t want to enter the contest, I’d still love to know your take on these questions and/or the topic of magic.
Now here’s a synopsis of THE TROUBLE WITH MAGIC: 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... Here’s what some have to say about the author and her writing: “Rice's enchanting book is truly spellbinding.” — Booklist “You can always count on Patricia Rice for an entertaining story with just the right mix of romance, humor, and emotion.” — The Romantic Reader “Patricia Rice's historicals are deliciously fresh, sexy fun. Never has the battle of the sexes been more charming!” — Mary Jo Putney, New York Times bestselling author
