She can work her magic on any man...
In a quest to bring peace to her beloved Scottish borderlands, fortune-teller and spy Undine Douglas agrees to marry a savage English colonel. Desperate to delay the wedding long enough to undermine the army’s plans, Undine casts a spell to summon help and unexpectedly finds herself under the imperious gaze of the handsome and talented Michael Kent, twenty-first century British theater director.
But in this production, he commands the action...
Though he abandoned acting years ago, Michael will play whatever part it takes to guard Undine’s safety—he’s used to managing London’s egocentric actors and high-handed patrons, after all. But not even Shakespeare could have foreseen the sparks that fly when the colonel’s plans force Undine and Michael into the roles of their lifetimes.
An amusing fast paced time travel book spotlighting the heroine Undine, who is featured in the previous books to the Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands series. Undine has always intrigued me with her ability to cast spells, knowledge of unseen things and her spying techniques. It is refreshing to have her thrown off balance by Michael who keeps changing like a chameleon adapting to everything she throws at him.
This couple complements each other in every way when they get past all the thorniness of Undine. Though Undine is always putting herself at risk I am glad that the author created Michael to balance as well as support her.
There is intrigue in this story with her fiancé, the savage English colonel and the equally amusing secondary characters. But for me I loved the areas in the book that made me laugh out loud. The author has the gift of creating a thrilling read with humor.
I give this book 4 STARS for the pleasure of the read.
