Kurzbeschreibung

A Fairy Tale Romance.

Declan Harper is determined to have the reluctant woman he desires as his bride, even if it means visiting the old witch who lives in the woods beyond Tanglewood, Mississippi to purchase a love potion. But he finds the old woman gone, long dead. In her place is her bewitching granddaughter Matilda, who claims to know nothing of the kind of magic he wishes to possess.

As far as Matilda Candy is concerned no good ever came of love, and she can’t imagine why Declan is so intent on having the power of love in his hands. But as she attempts to deliver what he wants an unexpected love blooms and Matilda finds herself wondering . . . Can love be manufactured, or is it impossible to touch the heart with even the strongest magic?

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fairie tale for lovers -- very highly recommended 13. März 2001
Von C. Penn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Matilda Candy doesn't mind that the people of Tanglewood, Mississippi, believe that she's a witch.The rumors provide Matilda with a measure of privacy and freedom from unwanted visitors. She learned much of her grandmother's craft, who's name she also bears. So when a stranger comes to the door looking for her grandmother, she offers her help.
Declan Harper has little patience for ineptitude and determines to own the town and run it by his own exacting standards. He's going to own the town that once scorned him, and every business in it. When he overhears two children, Hason and Grechen, talking with their mother about a witch, he recalls Matilda Candy fondly, as the only townsperson who treated him well and believed in his positive future. The only thing Declan wants, that he doesn't yet have, is Vanessa Arrington. So he hopes Matilda Candy can help. After he realizes the old woman has passed away, he asks the young Matilda for a love potion. Declan insists, despite her assurances that there are no magic potions to affect the workings of the heart. She can, however, create an aphrodisiac -- a lust potion.
To Declan's way of thinking, Vanessa is the paragon of feminine beauty. In addition, marriage to her offers the perfect revenge. Her father had always referred to him as "that Harper boy", calling him and his sisters poor white trash. The elder Arrington hadn't yet equated the wealthy Declan with the boy he'd maligned years ago. Declan looked forward to enlightening him, maybe after the wedding.
As Matilida turns the pages of aged and dusty books, she finds a note from her grandmother cautioning her about trifling with ways of the heart. Matilida and Declan are kindred spirits, both knowing what is to be on the outside looking in. Both have strong purpose in their lives. What Matilida would really like to give him is a common-sense potion, rather than a love potion to win a vain, vacuous ninny. Nevertheless, she draws up the potion, which they test on themselves. Let the fireworks begin!
This whimsical, entrancing tale will satisfy the romance fan demanding something unusual and wonderful. With a skillful blend of the fanciful and the mundane, author Linda Jones weaves a marvelous tale of love and happy ever after, with a twist. Remarkable in imagination, INTO THE WOODS is very highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen true to the fairy tale! 2. Februar 2001
Von Elizabeth Benway - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Declan Harper seeks revenge on the town of Tanglewood, his childhood home, for the ill treatment the upperclass had shown his family when he was a child. They were forced to leave town when he was but a young boy and now as an adult Declan vows to prove to one man in particular that he now has a higher station in life. He hears the urchin twins Hanson and Gretchen spinning tales of the local witch and remembers the gentle old lady that had been nice to him in his youth. He wants to wed the most beautiful woman in town so he needs the Candy lady to make him a love potion to help his plan succeed.
Matilda Candy knew the town thought she was a witch but she ignored them and continued on as her dear sweet grandmother had taught her. She lived alone quite content making candy, rose water and lotions to sell to the grocer in town. She was exceedingly patient with the precocious Hazelrig twins and often made them sweets when they helped her with odd chores. However her
greatest challenge comes when a handsome man approaches her and wants her to make him a love potion so he can make the lovely Vanessa fall in love with him. Matilda agrees to help Declan even though she knows the woman is far from what she seems or what Declan needs.
Ms Jones expertly weaves a wonderful romance story into a favorite childhood faerie tale of mine...Hansel and Gretel. The story had interesting characters that kept me entertained through out the book. A beautiful love
story that was very magically told...definitely a keeper!

5.0 von 5 Sternen oh so good... 28. März 2012
Von silvergray - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is story is oh so good...

This book has romance. Unlike other stories out there, there is an actual buildup to "love". Admittedly they find each other attractive almost immediately, but that's a common occurrence in these kinds of books. It's how it builds from there that really got me. The characters flirt. They have quiet scenes. And the best part is they aren't always on top of each other. But, yes they do get on top of each other but even then the naughty bits are written quite well (not overly descriptive erotica, but explicit enough to be sexy)

This book has intrigue. One of the main characters even has a revenge plot that actually has consequence to the story. There are many romances out there that forget about their subplots, this isn't one of them. It's well woven into the main narrative.

This book has well rounded characters. In lots of stories there's an insistence that the female leads declare themselves to be strong, only to never prove it in their actions. The female lead in this one has a silent strength that you can feel throughout the book. She makes her own decisions, right or wrong, and doesn't wait for the writer/fate to make them for her. The male is human. He feels like a real person. Most romances forego giving their "prince charmings" a personality. You have to supply your own dreamboat in those cases, but this one is an actual human and screwed up. Even the some of the townspeople and the side characters have humanity in them and go through their own arcs.

This book has annoying children. Okay, this I could have done without, still they do make the world a bit richer. They were a tiny bit two dimensional but do have a nice story arc so I guess I can forgive them.

5 stars. Oh so... soo... sooo good...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Ok. Story just too predictable 21. März 2013
Von lynlou - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Enjoyed how the storyline follows a fable. I found the children delightful. I loved reading the way the author writes about the children, full of fun mischief and adventure. I though the character Matilda was just too perfect and Declan was such a jerk. I just couldn't picture them together. Overall I found the story line too predictable not enough excitment, twists or turns for me.
