The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic


Formats & editions


Nora will learn, though, that real magic - like true love - can sweep you off your feet when you least expect it . . .

'Of course, there's no such thing as magic anyway . . . '
Nora's life is not quite going as planned. The man of her dreams is getting married, but not to her; her academic career has stalled; and there's a mouse in her kitchen . . . Getting away for the weekend for a friend's wedding seems like perfect timing - especially when she stumbles, quite literally, into a magical world where everyone is glamorous and life is one long party.
What she doesn't realize, because everything is such fun, is that there's a darker side to her new friends. In fact, it's only after she agrees to marry the charismatic, masterful Raclin that she discovers she's a prisoner in this new world.
If Nora is to escape Raclin's clutches, her only hope - and a reluctant one at that - is the magician Aruendiel. A grim, reclusive figure with a biting tongue and a shrouded past, he might just teach her what she needs to survive and perhaps even make it home: the art of magic.
Nora will learn, though, that real magic - like true love - can sweep you off your feet when you least expect it . . .
