Two charming sisters and two handsome brothers find themselves pulled into trouble by the uncontrolled magic of one sister, who is just too lovable for her own good. An evil wizard is determined to marry her no matter what it takes. Defeating him involves war, diplomacy, and the judicious use of science — oh, yes, and a unicorn.
A mouse magician, a battle at sea, a unicorn hunt, whirlwinds…and magic, await you in ‘A Charm for a Unicorn’.
“…Although A CHARM FOR A UNICORN is listed as a young adult title, it is suitable for any age group to read and enjoy. A classic fairytale with magicians, a prince, unicorn and a host of others make this tale intriguing from start to finish.
Two sisters, different yet both seeking happiness, must throw off the impositions set upon them by their magician father in order to make their own way in the world. There are passages in Jennifer Macaire’s story that are breathtaking and intense, especially the transformation Leonie makes from young woman to unicorn and back again to human. I felt the quicksilver in her veins, the energy she possessed in unicorn form. I felt, too, Leonie’s love for Renaldo, her fear they wouldn’t be able to find happiness. This is a story about discovery, changes and the happily-ever-after we all seek. It is a parallel tale, with both sisters’ personalities and desires brought to light.
I enjoyed everything about A CHARM FOR A UNICORN. The story is wonderfully told, with characters that pulled at my heartstrings. It is all that a romantic tale should be-for any age.”

“…The tale has all the classic elements you would expect, beautiful lasses, princes, good magicians and of course an evil magician. The requisite happy ending is included too for everyone except the evil magician (fairy tales do not reward evil). The publisher list this story as appropriate for young adults but I think it would be enjoyed by people of all ages who love a good fairy tale; the young or the young at heart. It is charming and uplifting and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.”

“…(A Charm for a Unicorn) is a delightful, enticing tale of romance, vengeance, and hope for true love. A Charm for a Unicorn is not a common fairy tale, for although it has a wicked magician, the themes carry into a sense of duty to country and love of family. The characters are true to life, with heartfelt emotions, and the mouse provides a delightful comedic element.
Jennifer Macaire has written a thoroughly entertaining fantasy, one I recommend to young and old alike.”
