Buy This Book Calypso Magic is a truly incredible book chock full of suspense and spice and hilarity. Coulter is an absolute master at making her characters so real they become your friends, meant to be visited again and again. Lyonel Ashton, the Sixth Earl of St. Leven, is the hero. Because his ex- betrothed played him false, Lyonel no longer trusts women. But Aunt Lucia has other plans, and enlists Lyonel in teaching Diana how to dance and how to go about in London society, forcing them into constant contact.
The two verbally tweak each other at every turn as the sexual tension between them grows keeping the reader smiling and in deep anticipation of what will happen next, until finally Diana goes too far, evesdropping on a very private conversation between Lyon and his ex-betrothed, learning all the details of his ill-fated engagement.
Outraged, Lyon decides on retribution, and tricks Diana into joining him at a private glade — only to turn her over his knee with the intention of thrashing her. Of course, his masculine instincts take over and the lesson is ruined by his feelings for her, and his distraction with her bared bottom.
Diana struggles away, confused and hurt, and ends up falling into a stream. He stays by her side until she recovers, then determines to keep his distance, alarmed by the depth of his growing emotions.
Diana, through with London and feeling out of place, insists on going home to the West Indies and before all is said and done, Lyon is stuck escorting her. The plot twists and turns as first they get stranded on a beautiful island, left with nothing but their overwhelming feelings for each other and the privacy to enact them all.
Enter the villians and the excitement of an evil plot and a twisted killer. And I still sigh at the intense, explicit love scenes, still LOL with the jokes, and still refuse to blink as the killer gets just a little too close to succeeding with his plans. Buy Calypso Magic by Catherine Coulter:.
Please note that I gave this 3. I read this for Romance Book Bingo Rogue square. I was tempted to just say slavery is bad and be done with this review, but no, I have to elaborate. Maybe because the whole slavery aspect of this book was so distasteful.
