Publisher's Summary

What's a duke to do when a carefully selected bride rejects him rather than marry without love? He salvages his pride by marrying the next woman who falls into his arms.

Joyous Fiona MacQuarrie bewitched the Duke of Belmore the moment she appeared from nowhere and knocked him over...literally. Joyous MacQuarrie is a Scottish witch whose powers of white magic are not always easy for her to control. When Alec's pride makes him choose to marry her, Joy turns the life of the most serious and snobbish duke in England upside down.

Too soon Alec finds his well ordered and controlled life a mess, because he married a witch - one who turns him to fire when he kisses her, who charms everyone around her, and threatens to destroy both their lives as scandal looms over her.

Too late, Joy discovers she's desperately in love and not even the strongest magic can seem to turn her into a proper duchess, or make her husband love her. Passion holds them spellbound in an irresistiblely funny and tender tale of two opposite but lonely hearts.

    "One Of My Old Favorites Now in Audiobook Form"

    I read this story several times years ago and I'm so pleased that it's now in audiobook form.

    It's a lovely and fanciful tale of a bumbling witch who falls in love with an unlovable hero. There is so much to laugh at and also a few tears. It's well worth entering this magical world.

    Story
    "Here is a great one!"
    Where does Bewitching rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Out of all the historical romances I have read and there are a huge number this is right up there as one of my favorits.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    all of the characters were charming, funny, and well developed.


    Which character – as performed by Anne Johnstonbrown – was your favorite?

    Anne did a fabulous job with all the characters and this is the first time in a long time when a narrator has done a good job with all the character's voices.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like reading historical romances I highly recommend this book. There was humour, sadness, love, twists and turns, beautiful love scenes and the narrator read it all beautifully.

    Story
    "I was bored out of my mind!"

    I like this author but this book was so boring. Here is my summary of the book: he is a stick up his butt duke. Don't worry if you forget that he is a duke because he will remind you every page of the book! And she is a joyful ( Joyous) witch. Again, don't worry if you have the brain of a flea because he will constantly remind you. And that he is A DUKE! Don't want you to forget that.
    The narrator was fine, I had no problem there at all. It is the storyline that killed the book.
    I have put this book down over a hundred times and keep picking it up again thinking this is Jill Barnett it has to get better, but no. I can't take anymore. I am just going to assume he gets joyful and Joyous and stop. I think I will try something funner like getting a tooth pulled or something.

    "Sad about this one"

    I tried three times to get in to this book and I just couldn't. I found it slow, oh so slow and in my mind's eye couldn't picture the movement of this one. In fact, it made no sense to me.
    I may be missing something here but; there it is.

    Story
    "very poor narration which distracts"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story is very sweet. A clumsy witch causes chaos in a very formal dukes life, a little bit of warm predictable escapism. However, the narrator is so awful I was crying with laughter, an american accent pretending to be scottish, it took a while to work out swooorey was in fact Surrey. If you cant bear the massacre of accents, give this one a miss and just read the book.


    What could Jill Barnett have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    New narrator please!
