Finalist in Affaire de Coeur's Reader/Writer Poll for Best Supernatural Romance
"Another delightful tale of the magical faery realm. If you
enjoyed reading Ms. Fox's previous novels, then you will certainly enjoy
Impractical Magic. Once again, she's written a wonderful book about the
faery realm full of laughter and magic."
Karen Fox's faery romances, Buttercup Baby and Cupid's Melody, have been praised as "sweet and charming, with plenty of Fae magic to burn up the pages" (The Romance Journal). Now the award-nominated author returns to the moonlit realm of Titania's court--and conjures her most magical novel yet...
Brandon Goodfellow may be the greatest illusionist in the world, but he's not magician. Just ask Rose Thayer, the beautiful faery who possesses the one thing he covets most of all: true magical power. Years ago, she captivated his senses and captured his heart, then disappeared without a trace. Now, to Brandon's amazement, she's back--not to rekindle the sparks she ignited, but to expose the truth behind his greatest illusions! Still, this not-quite-master magician has a few tricks of his own up his sleeve. But it'll take more than magic to convince Rose to do the one impractical thing she swore she'd never do: fall in love...with a mortal.
Jove Magical Love

captivates their audience as they are pulled into a bewitching web of
sensuality, magic, and pure fun."

Fae series installment, Impractical Magic. A witty fantasy read.
Karen Fox delivers another enchanting tale of the power of love and the magic
that two people can create. It was a treat to be able to catch up and read
about the goings on with characters from Ms. Fox's previous novels. This is a
definite keeper, I had trouble putting it down."
"Karen Fox has a flair for writing magical romances that manage
to cast a spell on her readers and glue them to their seats. And once again she
does just that with her newest Fae book, Impractical Magic, an
entertaining and enthralling tale of Faes and Fae magic that easily transports
the readers to that they are part of the beauty and magic that is love. It is

Karen Fox has written a fascinating romance that can't help but hold readers'
attention until its dramatic and unexpected conclusion. Fox simply shines with
this romance that is all about just plain fun. Readers can't go wrong with a
book by Karen Fox, because this author shimmers with the magical talent of being
a truly remarkable storyteller. After all, she made me believe in the
unbelievable. So whether you're a reader who likes refreshingly difference
romances overflowing with magic or not, Impractical Magic is screaming
"I had so much fun reading Impractical Magic. Ms. Fox
takes the faery world, imposes it on our world and then makes the whole thing
her own. I so enjoyed revisiting her universe and being swept away by the
story. Impractical Magic is a delight to read and I highly
recommend it. And yes, I do want to know if Ewan comes back for Sequoia!"
"The magic continue! Highly recommended. Karen Fox once again
lends her extraordinary talent to create a magical romance in Impractical
Magic. With a light touch of humor and sparkle, Fox casts a spell with a
story filled with memorable characters and a delightful plot."
"I've thoroughly enjoyed every one of Karen Fox's faery
romances. They all have been one sitting reads for me. This book is absolutely
enchanting especially as it brings Rose and Brand together. I have my fingers
crossed that we will see a story about Sequoia and Ewan in the very near
future. Thank you, Karen Fox, for hours of reading enjoyment for me!"
"Karen Fox pleases her fans as she again brings together the
realms of the magical world and the human world. Personally, I believe this to
be the author's best story yet. The children of the book Buttercup Baby
get their own tale told. I cannot express how wonderful this novel is! If you
have not read a book by Karen Fox, pick up a copy of Impractical Magic
and find out what you have been missing!"
"While Impractical Magic concerns itself with the magic
of illusion and the magic of the fae, it also succeeds in proving the greatest
magic of all is the magic of love... Other than talking about the effect of
magic in their parents' lives, no much is discussed from the previous stories,
so if you haven't read them, you won't have a problem keeping up with
Impractical Magic. However, after reading two of the four related stories
(the fourth being Cupid's Melody), I definitely plan to read the other
two, and can highly recommend reading the enchanting stories about Karen Fox's
"A new generation of Faerie Magic! Impractical Magic
puts together the two children of Ms. Fox's beloved couples from Prince of
Charming and Buttercup Baby. This story was so much fun. Crazy
things happen wherever Rose happens to be. Then there is the added bonus of a
secondary romance between Brandon's assistant who also happens to be Rose's
favorite cousin, and a faerie sent by Titania to bring Rose to live in the
faerie realm. Sequoia makes Ewan promise to leave Rose alone if she can teach
him the meaning of love. This proves to be an enjoyable challenge, and I hope
their story will be continued in a future novel."
"A delightful paranormal romance. ...this "magical love" tale
will charm fans. Fantasy romance readers will enjoy this novel and look forward
to a future story starring Rose's cousin and the male Fae assigned by Titania to
bring Rose to the fairy realm."
"Set aside a few hours and let Karen Fox do what she does so
well, draw you so far into her world that you won't want to leave."
"Impractical Magic was a fun book to read. I enjoyed
the characters and the plot. ...now I want to read the next one!"
"IMPRACTICAL MAGIC is an enchanting, magical and
refreshing read. Karen Fox brings us a story with plenty of humor, irresistible
characters and a lot of exciting magic that casts its spell on its reader. I
couldnít put this book down and I was touched on many levels. I laughed, even
cried a little and found it delightful and better than I could have ever
imagined. The relationship that Rose has with her cousin Sequoia, as well as the
friendship between Brand and Sequoia were fantastic and very real. Ms. Fox
masterfully writes a splendid, beautifully flowing tale with amazing characters
and a magical romance that will have readers breathless and anxious for another
magical tale about this intriguing and unforgettable family. Rose and Brandís
intense passion is sizzling hot, full of obstacles with some wonderful surprises
along the way, but there is no fighting their destiny. The romance between Rose
and Brand is magical, as is that of the secondary romance between Ewan and
Sequoia, but it is the magic of Ms. Fox writing that will have readers
enthralled, spellbound and have them smiling even after the last page. Karen
Fox's talent is magic at its greatest."

"I LOVE your books, it only took me a day each for Buttercup
Baby, Impractical Magic, Cupid's Melody and Prince of
Charming. I enjoy how they are all linked in some way and I was just
wondering when you will be writing the next fae novel."
"After visiting your site, I purchased the series of books on
the fae -- I passed them along to my friend in Colorado for her enjoyment. They
were really well done."
"I found Buttercup Baby, Cupids Melody and Impractical Magic
and bought all 3. After 12 -14 hour workdays, it is a delight to come home
- put my feet up and get lost in your magic. I have found since reading your
books, my stress level is reduced. Keep writing - I will keep buying your
"Just wanted to tell you that I received your autographed copy
of Impractical Magic and have just finished reading it. It was
absolutely awesome. I loved every single bit of it and I can't wait to get my
hands on your other books."
"You have probably heard this all before, but i will say it
anyway: you are a truly magnificent writer and have a real magic with words.
Your books are an amazing read and i have even written some reviews on
amazon.com. A year or so ago I read Prince of Charming, and today I read
2 more of you books, Buttercup Baby and Impractical Magic and they
were both sensational!! I only wish i could read more but our library doesn't
seem to have all that many more of your books. I wanted to say thank you for
giving me a few hours away from my world and bringing me into yours. without my
books i would go nuts!"
"I just finished this book. I loved it! Brand and Rose are just
so right for each other. I love your fairy books. I am so glad you are keeping
them going. I see on the back sheet in the book you wanted to know if your
readers wanted Ewan and Sequoia's story, you bet I do. By the way I am glad you
had Brand perform in St. Louis at the Fox, it is a wonderful place to see shows
and concerts. It took me by surprise though not many books mention St. Louis
and if they do its only in passing."
"I just wanted to write you to say how much I enjoy reading your
books. I have read all four of the Fae books and love each and every one. I hope
that you continue the series with Sequoia and Ewan and more after that! Hey, a
girl can dream can't she? I have read tons of romance novels and when I came
across yours in a local bookstore, I was hooked. I have enjoyed reading romance
novels that involve Faeries, witches, magic and the lot. Thank you so much for
writing such beautiful and magical stories!"
Why Did I Write This Book?
Readers asked for this story and I was happy to oblige. After Rose's birth in Buttercup Baby, I knew she deserved a story of her own, but I couldn't decide who was right for her. Brand Goodfellow lost no time in informing me he was the only one right for Rose and I had to agree. Who better than the sexy son of a sexy man?
Only Brand was born without magic while Rose inherited all her mother's powers. Boy, talk about conflict!
