This was my first Catherine Coulter book and i have to say will NOT be my last! I loved this book, especially the characters, Lyon and Diana. A must read! This will always be my favorite C. Coulter book. I also like the way she changed the scenery of the book, from England, to a ship, to an island, and then to Diana's home. Wonderful!

I was disappointed with this story. I loved hawk and frances from the first book. Though hawk was an ass most of the time, but lyon i had liked. This book lyon never stopped being superior, though he does have some reasons, still he needed to lighten up. I was bored through most of the book and laught little. I think this book wasnt close to the standards of such a great author ive come to expect. Good just not great!

As one reader nited, theres a lot of undeveloped and useless characters in this story. However, i guess the real kicker is reading over 150 pages of how Lucien sleeps with his mistress. It just destroys the rimance when the heroine isnt the mistress and he has already met her. Not going to buy another book by this author

I really enjoyed this story. Calypso Magic was a definitely a different plot for an English Historical Romance.

This book kept me up all night, wanting to read more and more. So, it's definitely a page-turner. The characters in Calypso Magic were very enjoyable to read, especially when it came to the banterings between the two main characters, Lyon and Diana. It has a lot more story than just pure romance, but it does satisfy both parties. The book, all in all, was great to read, but the end seemed a little weak for me. Nevertheless, it delivered until the end. Overall, I do recommend this book to anyone interested in Catherine Coulter's fiction. :)

I will not deny that the story is set up excellently with so much promise in its plot, unfortunately in the end it fails to deliver. Quite a few characters were introduced and slightly developed that did nothing to contribute to the story, like the mistress and the 'old monk'. Characters introduced from other books seem thrown in purely to promote their respective books. For example you learn nothing about why Captain Rafael 'isn't just any ship captain sailing the seven seas.' He just very helpfully shows up, contributes a few cleverly placed lines and then disappears. The culmination of the story is a unbelievable dues ex machina, involving a sudden manifestation of 'insanity.' Its like a bad soap opera. There's a poisoning incident where, even at the end of the book, you still don't know who did it nor why! Sadly, I've read children's books better written than this novel and entirely regret buying it. I give it 2 stars only because the beginning was so promising and I did enjoy it, until I reached the unsatisfactory end that left me frustrated.

The culmination of the story is a unbelievable dues ex machina, where the culprit is explained by a sudden manifestation of 'insanity.' Its like a bad soap opera.

Her books have humor and they keep you reading. I read most of her books for pure escape.
