Overview

Romance writer Clara Winston dedicates her newest book to her cat, Puff, without knowing what havoc she is about to unloose on her placid (boring?) life. Because there's a rogue CIA agent out there whose code name is Puff, and some very bad guys want to kill him. When the bad guys show up at mild-mannered Clara's house, thinking that she can lead them to the man they're hunting, she is rescued by that man, disgraced CIA agent Jack McClain. Jack is green-eyed, black-haired, infuriatingly macho--and every bit as sexy as the romantic heroes she's always writing about. Clara hates him on sight, but if she wants to survive he is the only game in town. With Puff very reluctantly in tow, they go on the run for their lives, battling each other until the sizzling chemistry between them explodes into red-hot passion. This is a funny, romantic thrill-ride by the New York Times, USA Today and Publisher's Weekly bestselling author that Romantic Times called "the mistress of sizzling sensuality."

Meet the Author

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved to write. My first book was a ten-page effort written at age five for my grandmother. Throughout grade school, high school and college I wrote for various school publications. When I was eighteen, my first professionally published piece—a humorous anecdote—appeared in Reader’s Digest. Still, it never occurred to me that I might become a professional writer. I aimed for a career as a lawyer and was actually in law school when I sold my first book. When that happened, the world lost a would-be lawyer and gained a writer. That book, which is still in print, is Island Flame, and it was published when I was twenty-four. Since then, I’ve written over forty books, which regularly appear on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller lists, among others. The mother of three sons, I read, I write, and I chauffeur children. That’s my life.

James Bond era espionage when Russia was the arch-enemy. Plenty of action, some interesting situations, a lot of unneeded sex scenes. And a cat.

NIGHT MAGIC Karen Robards Grand Central Publishing ISBN: 978-0-446-35391-5 $7.99 - Paperback 384 pages Reviewer: Annie Slessman A reissue, Night Magic, by Karen Robards is the story of a young writer, Clara Winston who spends her time writing romance novels and taking care of her three cats. She is a Southern bred woman who has lead, up until now, a sensible and sane life. Mistakenly taken as the girlfriend of Jack McClain, a CIA agent, Russian KGB agents take her from her home, her cat Puff in hand, to try to gain information from her. They have also taken McClain and when they escape their kidnappers, they set about on a journey to discover the identity of a Russian killer, Bigfoot. Clara is faced with things she never dreamed of in her sane life as she runs with Jack in an effort to evade being killed. Along the way she and Jack develop a relationship unlike anything Clara has ever known. The story takes a reader through their paces as Clara and Jack seek the man they are hunting. Robards in the writing of this tale has developed a cast of characters that vividly provoke a reader's interest. If you didn't catch this story the first time around, do so this time. At $7.99 it provides inexpensive and quality entertainment.

Proofreading is not too much to ask.

I have read many of Ms Robards books and have enjoyed them very much, but this is not one of them. The story line has been done many times before and the dialogue is very elementary. I found Clara to be annoying and Jack to be one dimentional. Not one of Robards best.

A 30yr old contemporary romance is NOT enjoyable. Vietnam and the KGB! Besides that, the typos were distracting and the dialogue trite and the leads were annoying. delete!

The grammatical errors and typos were numerous enough that it killed my ability to get lost in the story. It's like a watching movie where they neglected to edit out a microphone falling into the scene.

Good storyline, but the spelling errors make it frustrating to read.

Great suspense and romance in one book. I thought this was a great story - from the very first page to the last. I totally enjoyed the verbal fencing between the heroine and hero - that they didn't exactly get along from the first. And the pace was fast and furious. I totally enjoyed this book and will look forward to reading more of Karen Robards books. They are always guaranteed to be a exciting trip!

I read this several years ago, and enjoyed it so much. I loved the comical parts and the characters. I bought it to keep so I can read it again someday.

I enjoyed the story, which was a "spy romance" with a few different angles. As I usually like all of the Karen Robards books I have read, that was no surprise, however, the surprise came with the number of misspelled words, words that were just wrong (had nothing to do with the line you were reading) and more typos than I have ever seen in a book. Could have used a good proof reader!
