England, 1804

Lucasta Barnes knows the folly believing in magic can lead to--and she won't accept that her illicit tryst with a notorious rake was the result of anything more than pure lust. Or that it has bonded them together forever. Yet, she can't deny that she yearns for just one more night in his arms...

David, Earl of Elderwood, is used to women being enchanted by him, but ever since a passionate encounter with Lucasta three years ago, he desires only her. How can he convince his thoroughly practical paramour that love is the greatest magic of all?

Book two of the May Day Mischief duet.

Review: This is the second Undone! Its the counterpart to the other Undone! The Magic Of His Touch, which was Peony & Alexis' story.

I love Barbara's writing and she brings magic to life in these two short stories. I prefer The Magic Of His Touch, because it is a bit spicier. This story is more about the conflict between David, Earl of Elderwood and Lucasta, who found each other the same way Peony and Alexis did. (Someone was rolling naked in the May Day dew!)

Their encounter happened years earlier, and Lucasta has been denying her attraction to David because she doesn't believe in magic.

While this book isn't as steamy in the sex department, it does give you another perspective of what happened with Peony and Alexis.

I really enjoyed how these two stories intertwined with one another. You can read one without having read the other, but I highly suggest reading both.

Rating: 4 flowers

I've never heard of Harlequin Undone before. I'll also have to add this book to my TBR. Thanks for the review.
