And Scandals Are Meant to be Shocking...

The Duke of Robinsworth has flaunted and shocked society for years. In a moment of fateful mischief, Robinsworth encounters the enchanting and distinctly scandalous Sophia. Between her streak of magical mischief and his penchant for scandal, they're about to take rule-breaking to a whole new level...

Tammy Falkner has written a fun historical-fantasy fiction full of magic, romance and humor! Once I got past the first few chapters and got comfortable with the setting and the characters ways, it turned into a quick page-turner with laugh-out-loud moments and a faerie twist.  Sophia Thorne is a mission-fairy, her current mission is to make things better for Lady Anne, the Duke of Robinsworth's daughter. But upon meeting the little girl, she senses the Duke's sadness and isolation and decides that she will help him too. As long as she stays out of trouble and doesn't break any of the five "Unpardonable Errors" all should work out quickly and smoothly... at least she hopes it does. Ashley Trimble, the Duke, is blown away by Sophia - not only was she able to handle his unruly daughter in a way that he has never seen before, but even more so, because Sophia claims not to be afraid of him, rumors can be that, just rumors, she claimed. He also sees that she is different from the women he is accustomed to meeting, her mannerisms are blunt, genuine, heartfelt and child-like. All the things that he is craving in his life, not only for himself, but for his daughter too. And it does help that Sophia carries a beauty that is usually frowned upon - unruly auburn hair and freckles that he instantly adores.  I love historical fictions that have a paranormal twist to them - this is my first time reading one with fairies, and I really enjoyed it. The whole concept of these type of faeries was quite different - each fairy is different, there are mission faeries, gift faeries, house faeries... there was also a garden gnome that can shadow faes to make sure they stay on their missions. The "Unpardonable Errors" are the best part - of course one them is 'never ever falling in love with a human'. And the romance between Sophia and Ashley is like no other. Even with Sophia's fae-ness, Sophia and Ashley's relationship was so realistic, fun to follow and watch unfold. Their banter and teasing was hilarious! And the romance was done perfectly. Not too hot, but enough to quench the tension and imagination. The secondary characters made this book even more enjoyable - Sophia's snooping garden gnome, Ronald was quite a character, I can picture him and all of his 2-foot tallness! Ashley's brother Finn brought in some much needed humor - he was always there to either lighten Ashley's mood or set him in place. Even Ashley's butler, Wilson, was perfect - bringing in order and wisdom.  All memorable and amazing characters.  There is a really interesting concept about the faeries regarding fish! I really, really wish there was more discussion and explanation about this - no one has ever done this before and I am so very curious to learn more about it.  I never thought I would say this about this book, but A Lady and Her Magic is definitely one that I would enjoy re-reading; and I am definitely looking forward to following the series.

I had high expectations going into this story. I love the Lydia Dare books, which are co-wrote by this author. The story itself wasn't bad. However, it was difficult to follow at times. Rather than define the rules for her fae characters, we got bits and pieces as the story progressed. I think overall this stry suffered from a lack of defined backstory. With backstory, the relationships of all the characters would have made more sense and it would have flowed better. With that said, when things were explained, the story was good and I did enjoy it. I just wish more time had been spent on world building up front so I could have enjoyed the whole thing.

An enchanting read filled with magic, love, humor, and the land of the Fae. Tammy Falkner has created a beautiful world. I loved everything about this series. I got so wrapped up in it. I read it over the weekend and just couldn’t put it down. I laughed so hard at one point my husband looked at me like I was crazy! I loved all the characters.

One of them being Do NOT Fall in love with a human.¿Sophia Thorne is a fairy on a mission trying desperately not to lose her wings and Ashley(The Duke of Robinsworth) daughter is her chance at redemption.

All she has ever known is about to change.¿Ashley has hidden from society for years but when he meets Sophia she makes him want different things. She is changing not only him but his unruly daughter. How can he keep her with him when she holds her own secrets and is determined to run from him.¿The Duke will not let his stubborn fairy get away. Don’t miss out on this series it was amazing!

Tammy Falkner writes as though there is a land for the fae. She writes assuming that the roght people believe in the world of the fae. Ashley is the Duke of ill repute. His wife was murdered. Sophia is a mission fairy who was raised by her matertnal parents. There are five cardinal laws that a fae cannot break or they risk losing their wings, or worse. Sophia had them memorized but she has a weakness. Music hypnotizes her. It sets her into a spell and she is trsnsfixed. Ashley plays the piano and she finds herself dressed In her nightclothes, alone in the Duke's room, unchaperoned. Sophia has to comlete her mission, but she cannot stay away from the Duke. The Duke does not understandwhy he cannot stay away from Sophia. The idea is original and I enjoyed "making pretend". The explicit sex is for mature aults, but fairies are for hose young enough to believe. Do youbelieve in fairies?

Sophia comes from the land of the Fae on a mission. She is not to reveal who she is or fall in love with a human. When she meets Lord Robinsworth, she finds him with his young daughter, Anne.. She whispers something in her ear and she starts behaving. Lord Robinsworh is a very handsome man and he is followed around by rumors that he killed his wife. There are more Fae there than anyone would guess. Sophia's mother came to the land of the Fae many years ago, but no one knows where she is. Sophia could possibly lose her wings of she breaks one of the rules. She loves Ashley,. Lord Robimsworth, but knows she must leave soon. I loved this book. It is magical with characters that you will love. I received this book from Net Galley and the publisher for a honest review.

Very nice story. First story that I have read from this author. Nice story line, no "over-the-top" sex scenes, and well written and edited. I will definitely be looking for more books by this author. Great job...

Reviewed by Jen Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book As a lover of historical romance, but not having read many with paranormal elements, I’ll admit that I wasn’t sure how I was going to like this book. But, I ended up thoroughly enjoying this magical romp through Regency England. Sophia is a mission fairy. Her mission has something to do with the Duke of Robinsworth’s family, but the reader doesn’t get the complete picture until more than halfway through the story, so I won’t spoil it. But in order to complete her mission, Sophia’s grandmother engineers a meeting between Sophia and Ashley (the duke) and then an invitation to a house party at the duke’s estate. The two were attracted to each other in that first meeting and it continues and grows during the party. Ashley, the Duke of Robinsworth, was accused of killing his first wife and has basically become a recluse, hiding out at his estate with his young daughter. The few times he’s gone out in society, people are scared of him or gossip about him, so when he meets Sophia and she doesn’t care about his reputation and the gossip, he’s intrigued. And it helps that she also seems to have the magic touch with his willful child. I really liked both Ashley and Sophia. They were unique and well developed. I would have liked to have seen a bit more of Sophia’s magic being used, but with all the different fairies and other magical creatures (like Ronald the garden gnome) it helped with the fantasy setting of the story. But outside of being told Sophia is a fairy and one or two instances of magic until the climax of the story, she could have just been any other person. Since her heritage was important, I think it could only help the story to have been made even more obvious. And Ashley wasn’t your cookie-cutter rogue or alpha male. He was a bit more… human, which was a refreshing change. That said, I enjoyed the book and couldn’t put it down until it was done. The world building was solid and the cast was filled with memorable characters. The laugh out loud moment was when Ashley’s practically deaf grandmother made an appearance… well, you’ll have to read the book to see why I was in stitches. I can’t wait to see if Ms Falkner is going to write a sequel, as it was definitely left open for stories around the siblings of Ashley and Sophia. Thank you Ms Falkner for an entertaining tale!
