book one in the series
Red-headed Caterina von Velsen, a tomboy and superb horsewoman, detests her older sister’s husband-to-be. Christoph von Hagen is handsome and brave, but he is also a Casanova, a man with a reputation that stretches from his mountain manor all the way to Vienna.
|When Caterina’s older sister dies in a riding accident only a week before her wedding, Caterina is forced to take her place. She now belongs to a man she firmly believes to be “a cold-hearted rake.”
There proves to be magic in Christoph’s lonely mountain home, as well as in the locket Caterina’s aunt gave her long ago. Many misunderstandings and preconceptions hinder the arrival of true love, as well as the strange attraction she feels toward her husband’s magnetic, foreign born horse master. Set in 18th Century Germany, RED MAGIC tells the story of a young woman’s transition from rebellious girl to adored – and adoring – wife.
