Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
Trying to find a new paranormal take on things that doesn’t contain your normal vampires or werewolves tends to be a bit of a challenge at times. I enjoy werewolves and vampires but once in a while I want to tread past the norm and find something different. Regency romance meets faerie magic. Paranormal with a new yet lighter twist; whimsical and fun.
Snowstorms…Sparks…Lost Innocence…Pregnancy…Ex-girlfriend…Murder…Mayhem…gives you plenty to consider in this magical story.
With faeries and gnomes that talk, what more can you ask for in a story?
From the first time Claire and Finn meet you feel as if you can believe in love at first sight.
Claire knew from the beginning things just would not work between them. After all she herself was the product of a mixed relationship. She was half human and half faerie growing up in the world of the fae because she had magic. Claire became an endearing character with her whimsical, mischievous, impulsive nature that tended to get her into some trouble. And that trouble was Finn. Finn who happened to be a rakish playboy that was rather handsome as they tend to be. The interaction between the two was real as you watched the prejudices they both had melt away over the course of the story.
Finn changes as he discovers Claire gone after a steamy night of sex. She does stumble back into his life or should I say bedroom where they work together to save an ex-girlfriend from an unscrupulous character; and find out that they can’t ignore the magic that they have together.
Fate happens when we least expect it…even in this fast paced well written regency paranormal romance. Simply a fast paced story of intrigue and passion with a blend of elements from the human and fae worlds. This was such a fun story that after reading this and finding that it is the second in the series I purchased the first one and I am looking forward to reading it.
So if different is something you crave. Living outside the box of normalcy. Wanting something that is different then I feel you will find Ms. Falkner’s The Magic of ‘I Do’ just what you might want. I know I did. Because I feel everyone deserves a little bit o’ magic in their lives.

The Magic of ¿I Do¿ is the second book in the Faerie series by T
The Magic of “I Do” is the second book in the Faerie series by Tammy Faulkner. Claire Thorne is the daughter of a faerie and a human. She has spent her entire life with the Fae being raised by her grandparents. She is also a mission faerie and came to London on a mission with her sister Sophie. When the book opens she finds herself in a bit of a pickle. She has been abducted by Lord Phineas (Finn) Trimble, the brother of the Duke of Robinsworth. Claire and Finn are forced to stay at his home when a snowstorm occurs and the sparks fly between them, culminating in Claire losing her innocence to Finn. She is taken away by a faerie wind before they can talk about what happened. When circumstances throw them together again, Claire is increasing and worried about what it will mean. Finn, in the meantime, is just happy to see the woman who has been on his mind since they were together.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This was an interesting blend of paranormal and regency. The Rules of the Ton and the Unpardonable Errors of the Fae serve to cause difficulties for the two lovers. Even though they are attracted to each other, Claire knows from her own life experience that a fae child of a human parent causes problems in both worlds. Added to the mix, a vengeful Earl is determined to cause Finn and his brother trouble. Claire being a mission faerie and Finn being an Agent mean that they are both headstrong and wanting to rush right in when there is a problem. They are stubborn when it comes to their feelings for each other as well and it takes time for them to realize that they can’t live without the other.
I don’t usually like to read books out of order and I didn’t realize this was a sequel until I had already started it. I was enjoying the story so I kept going. As soon as I finished, I made sure to purchase the first book “A Lady and Her Magic”. The next book in the series “ The Magic Between Us” comes out in January of 2014.

I don't know how many of you know of my thoughts on faeries. Wel
I don't know how many of you know of my thoughts on faeries. Well, if you don't, I still think they are mischievous bunch and I don't think my opinion is going to change anytime soon. In the meantime, I have finished next installment of Tammy Falkner's Faerie books which happens to be The Magic of "I Do".
In this story we get know Claire Thorne a little better. When you first meet Claire in A Lady and Her Magic you actually get the impression that she's not really an impulsive type. Let me just say, that would be a misconception. Actually she is quite impulsive at times and usually at the wrong time. Hence, the reason she ends up with Lord Phineas Tremble (Finn). Finn is your typical second son. However, when he's with Claire it seems like magic between them.
Oh dear, mischief between these two abound in abundance. I mean second sons are always finding themselves in a bit of a jam here and there and faeries tend to have trouble follow them. So, Claire and Finn find themselves in precarious situations in the book. However, they seem to manage when they work together.
Overall, I found The Magic of "I Do" charming and enchanting like A Lady and Her Magic. I do adore Claire, but I'm not going to lie she's a bit standoffish in beginning. I think a lot of it has to do with her need to follow the Unpardonable Errors. However, she slowly melts away that icy exterior and I really start to like her. Finn, well, I have a soft spot for second sons, but he's actually not really that bad of a rake once you get to know him. He's actually kind of endearing. So, if you are looking for a little magic, I would suggest checking out The Magic of "I Do". Who knows you might find yourself in of a little magic.
