The Marriage Spell: A Novel

The Marriage Spell - Mary Jo Putney You know, I can appreciate a good trashy novel. Sometimes it's nice to escape, and lord knows I am not a book snob. So when I saw the summary of this book - nobleman in regency England marries a female wizard - I thought "why not?" I like it when genres collide. Unfortunately, this succeeds as neither a paranormal romance nor a regency. None of the characters were particularly well written or interesting, and the magical system was pretty poorly explained. I didn't see the attraction between the main characters at all. The plot meandered and seemed pretty unlikely. It's too bad, because like I said I thought the book started out really well - it just didn't ever go anywhere interesting to me.
