"Debra Dier has written a refreshingly delightful time-travel romance."—Midwest Book Review

The day after he survives a murder attempt, Dominic Stanbridge, the notorious Marquess of Lancaster, awakens claiming he is Colin MacKenzie, a Scottish earl who lived three hundred years ago. Suddenly London's fashion plate is running about town dressed only in his silk dressing gown, wielding a sword, and speaking in a strange Scottish accent. He has no memory of his life as Lancaster, and no idea who wants him dead.

After Dominic forced Jane into marriage, she vowed to thwart his attempts at seduction and earn her freedom. She steeled herself against the handsome blackguard, aware he would go to any lengths to win their bargain and seal her fate. Yet nothing could have prepared her for Lancaster's abrupt change the day after their wedding. How was it possible the detestable scoundrel could suddenly send her pulse racing with a single touch? Jane was far too practical to believe anyone could bewitch her. Yet suddenly she was at the mercy of MacKenzie's Magic.

This book is a good read if you like time travel romance. I like the characters, especially Collin, but Jane starts to get on my nerves a little when she continues to refuse to believe Collin is telling the truth. It's very romantic and definitely a good read if you don't need a very complicated plot.

I have read time travel romances before, but MacKenzie's Magic had an interesting twist. Instead of actual people being transported through the ages, in this novel, Ms. Dier transports the soul of Colin MacKenzie into the body of a cold-hearted, aloof, tainted Duke. Just a day after our dastardly duke "Lancaster" marries plain "Jane" in a union quite short of a love match, he suffers a blow to the head that allows Colin's soul to take over his body. Although Jane maintains her skepticism of such a miraculous feat throughout the book, she falls madly in love with the masculine, adoring and devoted Colin. This is a novel of true love and destiny that defies time, forces you into a willing sense of disbelief, and ultimately makes you wonder if such magic exisits. One thing is for certain: Debra Dier knows how to create male characters to send a woman's heart a-flutter! This was my second novel by Ms. Dier and was as enjoyable as the first.

Though now a marchioness Jane Everleigh loathes the man nineteenth century rules that forced her to marry even if he is one of the wealthiest members of society. On the other hand, the notorious rake Dominc Stanbridge finds his new bride quite fascinating because unlike the horde of women, who openly desire him, she rejects him.

The morning after the nuptials, something weird happens to Lancaster, as Dominic is known. He had taken a blow to the head and now speaks in a wild Scottish brogue, has the manners of a barbarian, and claims to be a sixteenth century Laird, Colin Mackenzie. Even stranger is Jane¿s reaction. She rebuffed that same body just yesterday, but now finds it irresistible. As Colin begins to persuade the skeptical Jane it is all true, they fall in love, but he must return to 1562 to finish his quest.

Readers will feel the magic of this exciting historical romance. Though the displacement needs acceptance and Colin adapts to easily to a more advanced technology, the audience will find his tale fascinating. Lady Jane is a wonderful heroine and her love for Colin crosses the time barrier. Debra Dier has written a refreshingly delightful time travel romance that will provide much entertainment to fans of that sub-genre and those who enjoy a strong nineteenth century romance.
