"Betraying Season" by Marissa Doyle [4 1/2]

Penelope Leland has come to Ireland to study magic and prove to herself
that she is as good a witch as her twin sister, Persy.

But when the dashing Niall Keating begins to court her, Pen can't help
being distracted from her studies.
Little does pen know Niall is acting upon orders from his sorceress mother.

And although it starts as a sham, Niall actually falls deeply in love with Pen,
and she with him. Even if he halts his mother's evil plan, will Pen be able to forgive him
for trying to seduce her into a plot? And what of Pen's magic, which seems to be
increasingly powerful?

This is a wonderful second companion to the first novel, 'Bewitching Season'.

Pen has always thought she wasn't as good with magic as her sister Persy is, but she never really did try to concentrate when they were learning. Now that Persy is married she has come with her trust friend Ally who has married, to Ireland. Here Pen meets Lady Keating and her son Niall and she becomes good friend with them. Pen falls in love with Niall and Lady Keating is like a mother too her. Without spoiling the plot things happen and Pen has to use her magical abilities to her save her and the man she loves.

Really well written and flows along well from the previous novel. Delightful to read.

Beautiful novels to introduce to young girls who want a little romance in a novel as well as some adventure and a little bit of magic thrown in. Age group 13 to 15 year old.

I rate this book 4 1/2 stars.
