Praise for this book

"M. J. Putney has created true magic with this book, the kind that comes when you curl up in a comfortable armchair and let the story take your imagination away. Come visit an enchanted eighteenth-century England and meet two desperate lovers caught in the web of a sinister lord with great magical power. Romantic and lyrical, this tale will fill your reading time with pleasure. I loved it." - Catherine Asaro

"M. J. Putney's writing has always been magical; now that she has turned her hand to the telling of a fantasy tale, it sparkles on the page. Stolen Magic has to be one of the most delightful reads of the year, a witty, finely crafted tale that enchants from beginning to end. As always, Putney’s intelligent wordsmithery, scholarship, eye for detail, and ability to bring to life irresistible characters add up to enjoyment on every page. Fast-moving and fun!" - Elizabeth Haydon

"Magic meets science, love wars with duty, and power claims its due in this lush and fast-paced romantic fantasy novel. Seamlessly weaving together the Age of Enlightenment with the destiny of mages, Stolen Magic immerses the reader in a richly detailed world of strong-willed characters and the volatile sorcery that threatens to destroy them. This author, who has long been one of my favorite romance writers, has now become one of my favorite fantasy novelists!" - Laura Resnick
