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!

Book excerpt: This biography not only gives you an idea of the brilliant career of Mandrake with over 100 show photos, but also provides a glimpse behind the scenes. What was it like to live on the road with small children while constantly performing magic shows? Mandrake's first son, Lon, at age 6 attended five different schools in grade one yet graduated from U.B.C. with a Bachelor of Science degree years later. Mandrake's performing partner and wife, Velvet, remembers: "One night we had a big show, with full orchestra and a packed house. At the end , the audience really liked us and they came up on stage and presented me with a bouquet of red roses. We took our bows and we felt like the toast of the town. Then back to the hotel room I went to relieve the sitter while Leon organized back stage. I rolled up my sleeves and thought what a contrast, as I spent the rest of the evening washing out dirty diapers in the bathroom sink." Then there was the time the elegant Vancouver hotel phoned Mandrake for help because another magician's doves had flown into the high chandeliers and no one could catch them. A banquet was planned for that evening and they were in a panic. Mandrake, with his great experience in magic, caught all the birds in no time. See the photo of Mandrake in Las Vegas in 1945 when the Last Frontier was one of only three casinos on the strip. Enjoy the adventures of Mandrake and the unusual people he met on the road. Meet the real Mandrake the Magician.
