The Magic Knot by Helen Scott Taylor

Rosenwyn Tremain is an accountant and likes things that make sense. The exception to this is the tarot cards with the beautiful people on each card that her mother had made for her. There was a time when Rose could not start out her day without consulting the cards, but she has tried to distance herself from all things not easily explained.

Niall O’Connor is concerned with one thing only: protecting his brother and sister from the malicious Queen of the Faeries. If he has to do business with an evil druid to ensure their safety, then so be it.

Neither Rose nor Niall are prepared for the adventure that awaits them when their paths cross.

Rose’s mother had always warned her daughter to stay away from Cornwall and her father. When her job takes her to a tavern in Cornwall run by Niall’s brother Michael, she discovers that she is not the person she was raised to believe. She is the heir to the throne of the Cornish Piskies, a race of people that her father has imprisoned for years. To free her people and assume her rightful place as Queen of the Piskies, Rose must embrace her fairy side and leave her human life behind forever – and she will need Niall’s help to do it. But Niall is so concerned with protecting his own, will he be able to let go of past betrayals and open his heart to the woman who is his destiny? With a Fairy Queen bent on revenge and Rose’s father determined to destroy her, will their love be enough to triumph over evil?

Helen Scott Taylor’s The Magic Knot is an enchanting and magical tale delivering a mix of romance and suspense in a captivating read. Her characters are wonderfully developed, and while you want to scream at the protagonists for being so blind to their true feelings, readers will not be disappointed with the conclusion of this story. I am very glad to hear that this is only the “first in a series of contemporary fantasy romances set in the mystical rural depths of England, Ireland and Wales.” I look forward to reading more from this gifted writer.

Back Cover Copy:
HE’S A BIKER WITH AN ATTITUDE
What woman wouldn’t be attracted to Niall O’Connor’s soft Irish brogue and dark good looks? But Rosenwyn Tremain must find her father, and she isn’t going to let a sexy, stubborn Irishman and his motorcycle distract her. Rose’s intuition tells her he’s hiding something, a secret even the cards cannot divine. Her tarot deck always reads true, but how can one man represent both Justice and Betrayal?

SHE’S A WOMAN ON A MISSION
Magic. Niall’s body tingles with it when he finds the woman snooping in his room. Rosenwyn might believe she’s a no-nonsense accountant, but her essence whispers to him of ancient fairy magic that enslaves even as it seduces. Her heritage could endanger those he’d die to protect, but her powers and her passion, if properly awakened, might be the only thing that can save both their families, vanquish a fairy queen bent on revenge, and fulfill a prophecy that will bind their hearts together with…THE MAGIC KNOT”

About Lori

For Lori, being an avid reader was inevitable as the daughter of two English Lit majors. It also didn’t hurt that her Grandmother was a children’s librarian so there were always plenty of books in the house. When she is not reading, she can be found performing in and choreographing musicals for local theater groups. She works full-time for the Federal government and juggles that, being a wife and mother, the theater and still finds time to read on a daily basis. She is rarely without a book in her purse and her husband loves to tell people about the time she pulled out a book and read at an NHL game.

  1. I love the secondary character Mick and Nightstalker of the book they help the story along and it was a very good read.

  2. Oh wow! I’ve never read a book about Piskies before! The premise sounds AWESOME. Thanks for the heads up!

  3. Never heard of the Piskies. Adventure? Romance? And all with well developed characters? Definitely a book I need to pick up. As always, thanks BBB for introducing me to some great new authors.

  4. Can you say conflict! WOW, that poor fairy/girl has to save the world and then some. Hm, I’m also very intrigued by the Astrology part.

    Confession time: I didn’t know anything about Piskies. Shame, I know :(

    Read an excerpt of this a month or so ago and was intrigued. This review adds to those questions and wanting to see where this story takes these characters. I will be keeping my eyes open for this book.
