    Story
    "What can I say? A lot, it seems..."

    This is my second purchase of a Patricia Rice novel. I haven't been a romance reader since I was 13 years old. However, I chose to read the first book because it was narrated by Simon Prebble (que the music🎶 - I'm in love with this hunka-hunka of burning narrator) and I enjoyed it. Unfortunately, that one novel is the only one of her books that he's done. Ah well, I'll try another. This narrator did....fine (he's no Prebble) and the story was almost as good as the first one (would have been GREAT ....if.....well, you know.....).

    Here's the skinny.
    I love "magic" part of these Magic Series books.
    I love that it centers around the
    Matriarchal.
    I love that, yes the women are beautiful ,fey and besotted but they are also SMART.
    I love that the men are all dickheads but also eventually find themselves made more whole, by the love of a good woman.
    Okay, Okay.....I SAID OKAY! The men are all tall, hard of muscle 😉, and virile. Let's NOT, for the love of the old gods and the new ones, forget VIRILE!
    All in all? It's 9, 10 or 11 hours of pure escapism. And look, you're listening to it on Audiable - you can't be embarrassed by the OVER-THE-TOP cheesy art on the book jacket.
    As long as you use earbuds or headphones, you can tell your husband it's a book about how to be a better wife, your priest - it's a book about how to use God's gifts, your children - a book about family loyalties, but tell your girlfriends about the "hard of muscle" part.

    Cheers!
