The future of Charlotte Harris's fi nishing school is in jeopardy when a charming Spaniard -- world-famous magician Diego Montalvo -- arrives to turn the bordering estate into a scandalous pleasure garden. Valiantly ignoring his wicked flirtations, outspoken Lucinda Seton vows to derail his plans and save the school, unaware that Diego's true mission is to spirit the long-lost heiress away to Spain for a handsome reward! But before long Diego's heart is playing tricks on him, and Lucy is falling under the illusionist's spell. How can the Master of Mystery go through with his devilish scheme when all he wants is to make the lovely heiress his own?
I actually really enjoyed this book. The first few in the series I was disappointed in. They were ok but nothing special. This book was fantastic. The twists and turns in the plot were well placed. Diego had a haunting past and all he wanted to do was it make right, no matter the cost. It's almost too late before he realizes that it doesn't matter if you have a house with no one to share it with. Lucy thinks her life was normal and held no mystery until Diego came along and showed her that she might have family and what she believed may be false. I am anxious to see what happens with Mrs. Harris and 'Cousin Michael' in the next book! Great read though!
