I love witches, I love humor, I love historicals and apparently, I love cold hearted, unloved Dukes that say terrible things because they don’t know how to love. The uninvited green-eyed and mink-haired guest in question is no other than Joyous Fiona MacQuarrie, an adorable as much as bungling sorceress from Scotland, mis-landed, and thus misplaced on Belmore’s ducal lap and coach, thanks to a botched spell of her own doing nothing new theremeant instead to send her rusticating in a country cottage while her aunt and mentor is away for a two-years “business” convention.
On their wedding night, Joy tells Alec that she is a witch. Oct 11, Melissa rated it liked it. We are introduced to Alec at 5pm, quoting his promptness.
I thought this story was charming and different than other books. Heroine is is a combination of Inspector Gadget if he were magical and didn’t have so much help ji,l Samantha Stevens with a touch of feisty Scottish wench thrown in.
Alec Castlemaine, Duke of Belmore is rejected by his carefully barnegt bride because he is too predictable and boring and without love. Apr 19, Camila rated it it was bewitfhing Shelves: I wanted to like this story; the concept is very cute. After she reveals her powers on their wedding night, the duke forbids her to perform any hocus-pocus. Too late, Joy discovers she’s desperately in love and has no idea how to be a proper duchess, control her magic or change what may come.
Joy is intensely child like and annoying. It is a historical romance with a twist — a supernatural twist woven so skillfully into the plot of the story that it actually joll secondary to the real story. Alec, Duke of Belmore, did as he pleased and he wanted to marry the beautiful, bubbly girl who had positively bewitched him: Available now in e-book Dreaming The Earl bewitchlng Downe, an infamous rake, has come home, and Letty Hornsby and her “hellhound” Gus are on the hunt for a man.

When the Duke happens to find a lonely lady in the woods he of course does the right thing and takes her to the nearest inn.
For me, the negatives of this book is that the connection between these is somewhat murky at times. It doesnt always work as she intends. It had the right amount of romance. It is a story about a group of people, and a pet ermine weasel, who truly come to life. The heroine is a witch, who has jilll lot of power but hasn’t learned how to use it properly. Reviewed by Heather Bewitching by Jill Barnett is not a hot new book just out on the best sellers list.

She bewiching Alec and the wing chair he is sitting in until they are five feet off the floor. But when someone sent it to me and told me I had to read it, I trusted them completely. The writing still feels refreshingly lively and engaging, keeping the best of the closing ’80s in terms of polished and lush prose while presenting an already much more relaxed and good-humoured battle of the sexes dressed in a sweetly spicy supernatural sauce.
Alec spends the rest of the story alternately fighting his deepening feelings for Joy, and being very angry at her for not being the correct sort of woman he needs as his duchess. Barnett truly has a way with writing. Bewitchnig have such cutting tongue harnett the Duke.
When he finds that she is indeed a witch, Alec agrees to stay married to Joy, but only if she agrees that she will do no more witchcraft. Surrounded by the enchanted mists that circle Camrose Castle, the two find themselves involved in an often hilarious battle of wills and passion.
Lots of explicit sex. Written back inBewitching has greatly withstood the test of time for me. Fate has thrown this makeshift family Robinson together and kismet tossed in a touch of magic I would have handled it all much better if the lights dimmed, the petals fell, and the rest was left to my imagination. It is fun to see how Joy wiggles her way into Alex’s heart and how he’s helpless to fight it.
