Book Blurb:

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?


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

My thoughts:
Rosenwyn Tremain’s mother gave her a warning that she chose not to heed, and she’s about to find out what would happen. When her job takes her to Cornwall, where her father resides, she’s determined to meet with him. After lifetime spent in her mother’s shadow she has plenty of questions for the man who fathered her. First she has a job to do, and the uncooperative O’Connor brothers aren’t making it easy.

Niall O’Connor’s life is all about keeping his family safe, but Rose is about to turn his life upside down. With Queen Ciar as a threat, Niall doesn’t dare let his guard down, but as sins of the past are revealed facing her may be their only chance.

The Magic Knot adds fresh ideas to an intriguing plot and transports readers to a magical world they’re sure to enjoy. Ms. Scott Taylor brings two strong, independent characters together with more than a simple spark of romance, and gives them something to fight for after a lifetime of disappointment and loneliness. I hope to see more on the shelves from this talented author soon.
