Patricia Rice, a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, has won numerous awards, including the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice and Career Achievement Awards.
Much Ado About Magic is the delightful tale of a painting that takes on a life of its own. Because Lady Lucinda Pembroke’s paintings have a reputation for being prophetic, her picture of a handsome man laughing as a ship sinks causes widespread gossip. Londoners are sure it must be Sir Trevelyan Rochester, gloating as his wealthy cousin drowns. As Lucinda tries to repair his reputation, she creates a mutual desire as colorful as her brushstrokes.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This was a slightly different story than the typical 'rogue' type story line - it has all the elements tho, but more. Lady Lucinda's paintings are thought to show the past, present or future but, unaware by her, one of her paintings actually turns out to depict Sir Trevelyan a handsome ex pirate, who has been trying to come back into society to find a wife, and the painting is thought to portray him as the murderer of his cousin who is missing and presumed dead. So he is furious and tries to find Lady Lucinda to throttle her.... but she is one step ahead of him and she has other plans then romance, mistaken identity, magic and humour all ensue.
A credit well spent.
This book was gifted to me by a friend. Narration and storyline were both very good although the storyline was slightly predictable up to the point they discovered they could change the future from what she depicted in her drawings. Interesting concept. Enjoyed reading.
luvs to get lost in a book
I actually selected this book because of the narrator, Simon Prebble. I love Simon's voice. I've been a huge fan of his since he did the Stephanie Laurens Bar Cynster books.
Much Ado about Magic was a nice change from the normal historical romances. Any story that makes me laugh, like the characters, makes me misty-eyed and hate to see a story end is a book worth recommending.
This book did all that. Simon's narration put it over the top for me.
As a mother of 4 you have a lot of laundry. Audible books made washing a whole lot nicer. Walking isn't as painful either.
Absolutely. Simon Prebble portrays the best male voice I've ever heard. Sultry and with a lovely English accent that melts butter. Ladies, do yourself a favor and buy this audio.
Rochester. Because Simon Prebble was amazing. You want to go to bed with his voice every night.
Yes. He is a brilliant reader with a masculine voice made for historic romances.
The whole book was so good I couldn't put it down. Lucinda and Rochester are perfect sole mates.
One of the best romantic audiobooks I've listened to. I'll be listening to this book multiple times.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
This was really interesting. I love the combination of historical and paranormal.
I hope audible adds the rest of the series soon.
