Ruby Elliott had the perfect life. Her husband, the rich and famous Illusionist, took her with him around the world and let her show off her trick birds on stage with him. Their young son had a chance to visit all kinds of exotic countries. What woman of 1889 could ask for more? It was a woman’s place to stand beside her handsome husband, right?

Then a chance encounter with an old woman and a cursed relic gives her husband REAL magic and sends their life spinning out of control. Find out how the magic begins in this seven chapter story of Ruby and Stephen Elliott, Prelude to Magic: The Prequel to Moonlight and Illusions.

About the Author

Diane Wylie is an identical twin, born in Philadelphia. She lives in Maryland now and is a hard-working, dog-and-family-loving, award-winning, Amazon best-selling author. Diane has been writing fiction since 2005, and her books fall into multiple genres including:

***Scottish Historical Romances:
Diane's latest interests have moved to earlier time periods. She loves to research new eras and has embarked on a new series. It will consist of a series of novellas published for ebook and print. Book One: BESIEGED, Book Two: HUNTED, and Book Three: REDEEMED have now been released. You can get all three in one ebook bundle called THE SCOTTISH FALCONERS. Who doesn't love Scottish historicals?

**Historical Romances:
Since watching Gone With the Wind as a child, I have also had an avid interest in the American Civil War. This interest comes to bear in my acclaimed historical romance novels, "SECRETS AND SACIFICES," "JENNY'S PASSION," and "LILA'S VOW," along with short story, "A Soldier to Love." "ADAM'S TREASURE", also features some figures from history--Pinkerton agents.

"DAUGHTERS OF THE CIVIL WAR" is a new book bundle containing two of my Civil War romances. People have been snatching up this deal by the hundreds!

**Fantasy/Time Travel Romances:
A hot, new fantasy romance series, FOREVER YOUNG is being re-released. Each timeless magician gets his power for magic from a different amulet. But his power comes with a price...immortality. Is this a curse or a blessing? Book One: "A TIMELESS MOON" (formerly titled Moonlight and Illusions) earned this from a reviewer, "With brilliant dialogue, a storyline that will leave you breathless, and two people who have much more in common than they know, will make you swoon with every glance."

**Romantic Suspense:
A recent addition to my group of books is "OUTLAW LOVER", a romantic suspense that draws on my experience growing up as part of an autoracing family.

About Diane:

I live in Maryland with my husband (a former racecar driver), son, and two little Welsh corgis, Dixie and Yoshi. I am also happy to live relatively close to my daughter, son-in-law, and two cute-as-a-button grandchildren.

I am a very lucky person to have this life, and I am grateful beyond words for my loving family.
