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.

I loved the action in this book, the on the run with Puff the cat in tow. This was the first book I read by Ms Robards & now I read everything she writes. It is a great book.

If you like adventure, humor, romance and suspense, then you will probably love this book. There's even a little bit of tear jerker in it.Clara Winston is a romance writer who is taken from her home, with her cat in tow, by CIA agent Jack McClain, whose job it is to keep her safe. Now they are on the run, searching for the truth behind a lethal international conspiracy. What follows is a journey of twists and turns where they can't afford to trust anyone and the body count keeps going up.The plot is amazing and it has non ending action. I love the relationship between the two main characters, Clara and Jack. They are very different from other couples I've read about. They were down to earth, but they were at time very grouchy and at other times down right mean. The book was totally hilarious and I had to stop reading so I could stop laughing. I'm a visual reader so I really love books where the author's description of what's going on makes you feel as if you are there with them. It's like watching a movie. Karen Robards is a master when it comes to giving you everything you need to "be there" with the characters. When I pictured Clare being yanked from her house with her cat in her arms, I lost it. I would have done the same thing. I'd be screaming "I'm not leaving without my dog!!" The book takes you on a journey that is a never ending roller coaster ride of twists, turns, surprises and laughs and even tears.The only complaint I could find with this book is... yes, I've said it before and I'm going to say it again, the print is to small. And in this case it's made even harder to read due to the color of the pages. I don't understand why they make the book so hard to read for people who have less than 20/20 vision.Other than that, this book is great. I can't believe I've never read a book by this author before. I now have a lot of catching up to do! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to any one who loves action and/or a good laugh.

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!
