The Dark Glamour BY Gabriella Pierce

Posted by Angel kk at Thursday, September 20, 2012

The Dark Glamour is the second book in this Intriguing and indulgent series by author Gabriella Pierce.

 In the first book we were introduced to our leading lady Jane Boyle, who is swept up in a whirlwind romance by the man of her dreams. Only to find out that everything is not as it seems.

The Dark Glamour takes up where the 666 Park Avenue left off.

 Jane is now in hiding, from not only the Doran family but her friends as well.  With there being nowhere in the world that Jane can escape from her evil mother-in law Lynne’s connections Jane decides to hid in the one place that they may not think to look for her New York City. After collecting the money and a glass unicorn  that Malcolm has left her, she decides to reach out and contact her friend Dee.

Though there are small glimpse of here other friends, the one I would have love to have seen more of ( Harris)  only makes small appearances but the books ending may mean that he will have a bigger part in the next book.   

In this book there is a major plot twist and we are introduction of 3 new characters.

There are the brother and sister duo from another witch bloodline  who Jane learns are in  negotiations with the Doran family. André the brother also happens to have a thing for our leading lady or Ella as he knows her. But is this real or is this just a result of their magic bloodlines calling to each other. Though there are some hot and heavy sense (no of which compares to her and Malcolm)

Then you have the major twist in this story happen when Jane things she is doing a tracking spell to find Malcolm. But Malcolm is not who she finds. Jane finds  Annette Malcolm’s sister and  Lynne’s presumed dead daughter. Who isn’t as dead as her family had thought she was. 
Jane believing that this is the only way to get Lynne to leave her and Malcolm alone, is to go on a search for Annette and bring her home. However this may be one secret that Jane should have left alone. As the result may make everything worse than Jane could have imagined.

Jane is a very strong and caring character that at times has a haphazard’s attitude of act first then deal with the consequences. As a result throughout this book there were moments where I question not only Jane’s judgement but her sanity. Staying in a city where your face is on every TV and magazine, not to mention hooking up with someone on team Lynne

I love the twist and the ending that leaves you wanting dying to find out what happens next.

Though there are sections of this book that I wish there had been longer and more indept, I enjoyed every moment of it .

The Story 

Jane Boyle married her prince charming and moved into his upper east side castle—but she didn’t get her fairy-tale ending
It’s hard to live happily ever after when you discover your demanding and controlling mother-in-law is literally a witch, determined to steal the magical powers you didn’t even know you had. Jane narrowly avoided Lynne Doran’s clutches when she escaped on her wedding day, and has been hiding out in New York City. But she can’t hide forever.
When Jane learns of the one thing Lynne wants most, she sets out to provide it, hoping her good turn will persuade her mother-in-law to stop hunting her. Unfortunately, Jane’s daring plan will send her right back into the witches’ den—the Doran clan’s multistory town house on Park Avenue. But thanks to a tricky spell, blond architect Jane will be transformed into Ella, a dark beauty with a whole new look . . . and all of Jane’s budding powers. Though the stakes are life or death, nobody said “Ella” couldn’t have a little fun along the way, too.
