Review: Courtship & Curses (Leland Sisters #3)

From the author of Bewitching Season and Betraying Season comes a brand new regency romance with plenty of intrigue--and magic!
Sophie’s entrance into London society isn’t what she thought it would be: Mama isn’t there to guide her. Papa is buried in his work fighting Napoleon. And worst of all, the illness that left her with a limp, unable to dance at the Season's balls, also took away her magic. When the dashing Lord Woodbridge starts showing an interest in Sophie, she wants to believe it's genuine, but she can't be sure he's feeling anything more than pity.
Sophie's problems escalate when someone uses magic to attack Papa at the Whistons' ball and it soon becomes clear that all the members of the War Office are being targeted. Can Sophie regain her own powers, find her balance, make a match--and save England?
Find out in Marissa Doyle's Courtship and Curses!
  I did not read the other books in this series. That had no bearing on my understanding of this book. The storyline is full of magic, excitement, intrigue and mystery. This is a good coming of age story. The main character has a lot more to worry about than which dress to wear to the ball. The long ago days of London society are brought to life in the pages of this historical fantasy. It was a very entertaining, light read. The fresh new romance of the main character was just too cute. She is a shy, humble, caring, sweet young lady. Her sense of humor makes her endearing. I liked this book enough that now I must read the other two. This was a light-hearted, charming read. If you are in the mood for a cute fun read then you should give this book a try.
