Overview

Sleight Of Hand

Dragomir Starkov poses as an illusionist, a showman performing tricks, his Romanian accent and dark good looks all just a part of the drama. That's how Rose Carlisle first sees him. She's a respectable girl—she wouldn't accept witchy birthday gifts from a demon. But the hustle and bustle of 1912 New York City offers plenty of ways to slip around the strict old rules of propriety. A good thing, too, because once Rose meets Drago, she no longer cares about being respectable.

But the only illusion in Drago's act is that his magic is smoke and mirrors. Every word of power he speaks is as real as Rose before him, in thrall to his lust and adoration. Drago knows about Rose's curse, that she will die on her next birthday. But the shadowy threat that stalks her hasn't won her yet. If she can trust him, perhaps he can save her too. . .

Review:  This is the fourth book in the series and in this story we have a a take on sleeping beauty.  While this is the fourth book, this can be read as a stand-alone story. I have enjoyed this series, but this story was a little harder to get into then the others in the series.  I found parts this story that I enjoyed and others left me a little wanting.   The story was a little convoluted in places and I found some of Rose's actions a little over dramatic.  I loved Drago, I thought he was a great hero.   He waits through time to find his true love and then does everything he can to protect her and he is a demon.  I did think the ending was particularly interesting wrapping the sleeping beauty myth into the story to save the girl and to have their HEA. While this was not my favorite in the series, it was a good read. 3Stars

Give me a sexy magician set in a historic time period and I'm sold! I really enjoyed this fourth installment in Marina Myles's Cursed Princes series. It starts off by showing the hero, Dragomir Starkov onstage, bewitching the lovely Rose, captivating her with his hypnotic powers. She comes to rely on his magic because it's her only hope for reversing a terrible curse. I had to keep reading to see who the villain was - and the love scenes were extremely sensual. All in all, a terrific read!

It is magic when Marina takes on the dreams of Fairy Tales. She has a wonderful way of taking the Olde Stories and turning them into current tales. I like her people in these tales. They feel like they could pop right into the room with you. You have to pay close attention as the good guys kind of switch around with the bad guys. There were quite a few surprises in this story but they make the best of Drago' s and Rose's story. Please try and enjoy this book. You too will be waiting for the next one!   I received this book for an honest review for NetGalley.
