After returning to the straight and narrow, Cary Westfield hopes to rebuild his life as a stage magician. Only thing is, the success of his new show is entirely dependent on a strange medallion inherited from his late grandfather—an amulet that holds a rare and inexplicable power to captivate the wearer’s audience.
Ty prides himself on his ability to obtain any item of magical significance—for the right price. When a mysterious client hires him to steal a magical amulet from a neophyte illusionist, he’s sure it will be a quick and easy job, earning him a nice chunk of cash.
As it turns out, nothing is sure when greed and powerful magic are at play. When a mob boss with far-reaching aspirations beats Ty to the snatch, Cary and Ty form an unlikely partnership to get the amulet back. The unexpected spark of attraction between them is a welcome perk, but each man has his own plan for the prize.
All bets are off, however, when it is revealed the magical amulet holds a darker secret than either of them had bargained for.
I love it when a book takes me by surprise and that’s exactly what happened with A Touch of Magic. This is the first book I’ve read by Isabelle Adler, but since I’m now intrigued by the Fae-Touched series, it most definitely won’t be my last.
Cary knew his grandfather’s medallion was powerful, but he had no idea what the magic it contained was capable of. When Ty steals it from him he never would have guessed that he would eventually be joining forces with him to get it back from yet another thief. Their alliance was tenuous, but their mutual attraction was too hard to ignore.
There were quite a few twists and turns in A Touch of Magic and a few unexpected connections that kept things interesting. There was just enough mystery, magic and romance to keep the pages turning. I can’t wait to see what happens next in the Fae-Touched series.
