Book excerpt: The restless wife of an illusionist becomes embroiled in a North African holy war in this “tour de force” of historical fiction (The New York Times). Early in her marriage to renowned prestidigitator Henri Lambert, Emmeline had exulted in his fame, the foreign tours, and the command performances of his “Magical Evenings.” Now, Henri’s given it all up to pursue a quiet life in their remote country manor, but restless, devoted Emmeline longs to see her husband return to his former glory. It all changes again when, in service to their country, Henri and Emmeline are invited to spend seven days at Compiègne as guests of Napoléon III. The emperor wants Henri to work his magic on a charismatic Algerian marabout who’s influencing his followers to overthrow the French in a holy war. For Henri, convincing a man of where his allegiance should lie will be the performance of a lifetime. But for Emmeline, ushered from the lavish royal courts to the barren Sahara, it will prove to be an illuminating journey that will challenge her views on God and faith, open her eyes to her husband’s weaknesses, and expose the treachery of her own country. “Flashing his own sleight of hand, [Moore] transforms a historical fact into a story both true to its time and relevant to the present day.” —The New York Times

The trick will be on them when the sparks start to fly! Magician’s assistant Lark Voorheen is tired of seeing someone else in the spotlight. She’d rather jump inside the hat with the rabbit than have another wannabe wizard take credit for her hard work and ingenuity. Ready to finally take the wand in her own hand, she’s lucky to find a wealthy marquis eager to back her show. After years of witnessing the lack of respect given to female magicians, she’s determined that no one thinks she got her shot by lying on her back. But that will be a hard sell when her producer is a handsome, rich nobleman such as Omar, the Marquis of Navarre. As a successful entertainment producer with a golden touch, Omar al Sharif has been used by talentless women stepping on his heart on their way up the ladder of success. But when he helps Lark take center stage, his attempts to freeze his growing feelings melt under the force of her star power. Unable to deny their intense attraction, they agree to hide their relationship from prying eyes. Neither would be taken seriously if word of their affair got out. Lark’s dream will die if she loses credibility, and while Omar doesn’t fear for his business, losing the love of his life would cut him in two. Can they pull off their biggest misdirection yet and convince the world they’re not together? Find out if love will reign in this light-hearted, sweet romance of royal engagements. The Marquis and the Magician’s Assistant is the fourth in a series of royal romances that are beyond the common tale!
