Magic Carpet Ride

Audrey McClellan writes books set on a island of the coast of Scotland. You may remember my writing about Westering Home and White Rose of Scotland. Magic Carpet Ride is only loosely connected to the island series. (Our hero's father is from the island.)

Angus is the prototypical romance novel hero and is ironically writing one, when he rescues our heroine Dorcas, a carpet designer, after her car runs off the road. This novel is full of every romance novel cliche in the book. And yet after checking it out of the library, I will buy my own copy. It shouldn't be so much fun, but it is. McClellan refers to it as a spoof of the genre at her web page.

If you are looking for a fun and spicy romance novel for the beach, give Magic Carpet Ride a try.
