Book Review: Uncertain Magic by Laura Kinsale

uncertain-magicSynopsis: Roderica Delamore has the ability to hear the thoughts of others and she knows this “gift” is more of a curse. Resigned to living without love and a family of her own, she finally meets a man whose mind is closed to her. Faelan Savigar, the “Devil Earl” of Ireland, is haunted by rumor and a mysterious past that would warn any young lady away. Yet Faelan has reasons of his own for needing Roddy as much as Roddy thinks she needs him.

Author: Laura Kinsale spent six years as a geologist before switching to becoming a romance writer. She has had numerous nominations for Best Book of the Year award given by the Romance Writers of America, and has won. She now divides her time between Sante Fe, New Mexico, and Texas with her husband.

Even thought March is often dreary and one of my least favourite months for that reason, it is also one of my favourite of months too… It has Saint Patrick’s Day! Due to my long held obsession with all things Irish, I have an obligatory love for March 17th (despite the fact that Ireland never really celebrated the day until more recent years). I have gads of shirts and accessories shouting out my claimed Irishness, so naturally I’d go all grabby-hands on any books relating to Ireland within them.

My goal for this month is to only do reviews of novels that have either Irish characters, an Irish setting, or an Irish author. With this in mind, I’ve reserved a great many books at the library with the hope they will arrive shortly… but given most still haven’t arrived yet I’m worried I might not fulfil my plan!

In my mailbox for this week, though, is Laura Kinsale’s “Uncertain Magic”. Roderica Delamore has a gift that may be a curse when it comes to the Irish rogue Faelan Savigar… and I cannot wait to find out what magic I’ll find within these pages!
