Kate Carmichael has not had an easy life. After her mother's death, her father left her in the care of a kind friend while he attempted to settle his debts, but he never returned. Now, twelve years later, Kate's guardian has passed away. And without a will promising her the Victorian house, the guardian's next of kin is ready to take possession and throw her out on the street.
With only a week before she's evicted, Kate must find the will. During her search, she inadvertently frees Robin Goodfellow from the portrait he has been magically trapped in for the past two hundred years, but the spell isn't completely broken. Some mysterious force compels Robin to remain at Kate's side. And even as they agree to help each other, a different kind of magic takes hold--leaving them spellbound in love...

Tale. I usually don't care much for stories about fairies, but I was truly

passion, warmth and humor. This story was great fun. Karen threw in a little
surprise at the end that put the couple's happiness over the top. Nope, I'm not

did, get psyched because there will be another! This time the fairy will be a
female in search of a mortal prince."

turning pages as fast as I could. This is the first book by Karen Fox that I've
read, but it will not be the last. Robin and Kate are terrific characters, with

good story into a great one. I urge readers of paranormal romance to pick up
this book as quickly as they can."

and dialogue, the true strength of Ms. Fox's writing lies in her ability to
create highly engaging characters in the context of a realistic, plausible
fantasy. Though three years in the coming, Prince of Charming has
proved well worth the wait. I look forward to her next book, Queen of
Hearts in fall 2001."

I am so glad that you will be writing more Jove Magicals--I love them and I am
sure yours will be wonderful."
Why Did I Write This Book?
In glancing through my book of Things That Never Were, I happened across an entry on Robin Goodfellow also known as Puck. While I've never been attracted to Puck, the handsome drawing of Robin included with this entry caught my eye at once and set me to thinking--an immortal who is half-human, half-Fae, endowed with magical powers and a potent sexuality. I could do something with that and I did. Before long, Robin came to life--as sexy a hero as I've ever created. So, who was right for him? As I'm tall (nearly six foot) and well-endowed <g>, I decided to pass these traits onto my heroine--Kate Carmichael--who's always felt out of sync with the thin stereotype for women today. But Robin isn't from today and Kate is just right for him. Let the fun begin!!
