3.0 von 5 Sternen More for paranormal romance lovers than medieval enthusiasts 24. Juni 2008
Von D. Merrimon Crawford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Susan Sizemore's A KIND OF MAGIC, a time travel romance going back to Medieval Scotland, is a romance more likely to appeal to paranormal romance readers as opposed to Medieval enthusiasts. The first part of the book delights with its humor and time shift but a simplistic dichotomy between the characters and time periods results from a lack of development of her themes and characters. The depiction of the Middle Ages is highly stereotypical and frustrating to readers who appreciate the time period but the author's development of the magical elements is quite well written.

Engineer Maddie McCullough takes a plane trip to meet her childhood heart throb Toby Coltrane. Intelligent and witty, she harbors insecurities about herself as a woman due to her lack of success in romance. Once a tomboy, Maddie is lonely and ready for adventure---but is she ready for the adventure that awaits her? Her mother convinces her that Toby and a trip to Glasgow is her last chance to tell Toby what she feels. When on the same plane, her friend Kevin transports a rare archaeological find to the University of Glasgow for metallurgical tests, Maddie cannot resist trying on this beautiful necklace. The rare artifact seems to possess some kind of magic, or is it a curse, because the plane crashes, transporting Maddie back to the 13th century Scottish Highlands.

When a strange magical light blazes in the sky near Laird Rowan Murray's land, he turns to help from the White Lady of Glenshael, a woman with the gift of seeing the future. Before telling him his fate, she makes him promise to do as she says. Reluctant, Rowan finally agrees to marry the first woman whom he meets on the road. Rowan will do anything to secure the welfare of his clan, including magic and spells, if they provide usefulness. Even plotting with Aidan to fix the promise to his desire fails and Rowan's marriage choice seems destined as magic and time travel bring him a woman who challenges him again and again.

When Maddie and Rowan come face to face, their two cultures collide. Susan Sizemore's time travel creates multiple laughs and smiles as Maddie, not yet aware of the time difference, seeks to understand her new surroundings. The Medieval setting challenges her as her engineering background and modern technological devices collide head on with the lack of fax machines, cell phones, etc. Forced to rely on herself and her own intelligence, Maddie opens up herself on a more primal level, exposing her heart and body to a kind of romance that reaches deeper within that the external trappings. Rowan, used to being in charge as a powerful laird must learn to trust her, loving her for mind as well as her body as her engineering gifts can bring new life. Susan Sizemore pits woman against man, science against magic, modern times against the barbaric Dark Ages in a tale that brings two unlikely lovers together.

Paranormal lovers will appreciate the fine nuanced details of this romance as magic transverses two time periods. Every detail is finely constructed, creating a vision of magic that intrigues. Unfortunately, the portrayal of the Medieval setting rarely goes beyond the barbaric Dark Ages, a term coined by Renaissance poet Petrarch as a contrast and criticism of earlier times as compared to the Renaissance's discovery of classical literature. For readers like myself who chose this romance for the medieval setting as well as the paranormal elements, the continued stereotypical description of this time period as barbaric grates on the nerves. Furthermore, it flattens Rowan's character. A little bit more research into the time period or a bit more glance at the beauty of Rowan's world through Maddie's eyes would have made this an awesome romance for paranormal and Medieval lovers alike. As it is, A KIND OF MAGIC is a romance with a tough, intelligent heroine and an intriguing look at magic and science together through an intriguing prism of time travel. As a lover of both paranormal romance and anything medieval, I would encourage the author to enter the Medieval world with a bit more imagination and research because A KIND OF MAGIC shows a potential to be able to draw in many different kinds of romance readers in future Medieval set time travel romances. Although I did not enjoy this particular romance based on the depiction of the Middle Ages and the resulting lack of possible character depth, I will definitely be watching for this author's future releases. This book is just so close to being an awesome romance and I think it is only her not fully developed vision of the time period as seen through Rowan's eyes and Maddie's transformed eyes that seems to miss for me. As a medievalist, I did not enjoy this romance and yet at the same time, certain very well written parts marked her on my list of authors to watch because I feel she has great potential in terms of Medieval time travel romance.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Kind of Magic 31. Juli 2008
Von Melissa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Madalyn McCullogh is an engineer. She hasn't made any time for romance and now she's regretting it. Maddie is flying to Glasgow to meet Toby Coltrane, the man she thinks she is in love with when she tries on a necklace found on an archaeological dig. The plane suddenly plunges, the world goes dark, and Maddie thinks she is going to die.

1210

Rowan Murray is the chieftain of his clan. After a fire is seen in the sky one night he goes to the White Lady seeking her magic to help his people. The White Lady tells him he must marry the first woman he sees on his way back home. Maddie is trying to figure out where she is and what has happened when a man rides up on a horse; who looks just like Toby. The man informs her that he will be marrying her.

Maddie and Rowan both struggle getting to know each other. They realize that Maddie is not from Rowan's time, but it's not that, that keeps them apart. Rowan refuses to fall in love. He's seen the hurt it can cause. Maddie wants Rowan's love though. An opportunity presents itself for Maddie to go back to her time and if Rowan won't admit how he really feels about Maddie, he will lose her forever.

A Kind Of Magic has an exciting and sensual storyline. The passion and fire between Rowan and Maddie is amusing and romantic. Maddie adapts well to being in a different century and Rowan accepts Maddie coming from another time easily. A Kind Of Magic is fun and entertaining.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great highlander/paranormal/historical! 16. März 2012
Von Miranda Owen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The book starts out in present day w/ the heroine. She works as an engineer, & is not a delicate little woman. Her mother is matchmaking to set her up with the guy she's had a crush on for forever. Long story short - after putting on a necklace from an archaeological site, she is transported to the year 1210 in the Highlands. Rowan Murray is the spitting image of the guy the heroine has pined for. The White Lady tells him that in order to save his clan he has to marry the first woman he sees on the road home. This turns out to be Maddie (our heroine). I've read a lot of these time traveling/highlander books. This is what I liked about this book:

* Susan Sizemore's writing
* The hero believes in magic even though he doesn't like it - so he can easily accept that Maddie came from some distant future land
* Even though the hero tries to put some emotional space between the two of them, he has moments where he expresses his true feelings, thus making him more than a angry, gruff Highlander
* The heroine's engineering background is made use of
* Nice secondary love story
* I love how natural & real Susan Sizemore's heroines sound
2.0 von 5 Sternen lack of development 13. März 2012

The only reason this book got 2 stars from me is because it had a chance of being a good story. I love Time Travel, Magic, Scottish Warriors and "The Fae" The "Necklace" and the "White Lady" all had the elements of a great story. What another flop.

The book was page after page of how the hero and heroine wanted each other,blah blah blah.
Nothing really tied in and never developed into anything exciting. Other then the fire place she could have used Maddie's talent a little more, anything, something.

There has to be a STORY in the story. I hate it when the whole book turns out to be what he felt and she felt and he thought and she thought building to a sex scene and nothing else other then what he wore or she wore.

This could have been a fantastic read but alas, boring boring boring, not even a great ending.
2.0 von 5 Sternen Ummm... What...? 23. April 2016
Von NinjaDemonAngel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Okay, so here's the deal. I love the comedy and that Maddie has a backbone that could rival a Titan and hide as thick as the Great Wall of china, but I feel that they seem to be really wishy washy. For example, Maddie would be extremely angry (and rightfully so!) with Rowan, but then turns around, glances at abs and completely forgive him!!!!

I mean I'm no expert, but that's not how it's supposed to work! Rowan. Where to start... He's a jerk, a sexist, and stupid in the way that he jeopardizes his beneficial relationship with the woman who is handing him his clan's survival on a silver platter with health benefits!!!

An okay read to pass the time. But a bad one for romance, time-travel ingenuity, and consistency.
