The Magic Knot - Helen Scott Taylor's In The House

It is with great pleasure I welcome Helen Scott Taylor to the blog today. This week she’s giving away a copy of The Magic Knot.

The cover is amazing and the book, I’ve been waiting forever to read it. She’s an American Title winner, how cool is that!

Here’s a note from Helen,

In my fairy world featured in The Magic Knot series, each fairy embodies the qualities of one of the elements. The leprechauns and Cornish piskies are Earth elementals, the noble old blood Tuatha Dé Danaan are either Fire, Air or Water. This gives them their powers, strengths, and weaknesses.

Humans embody all four elements, but we each favor one, which manifests in our personality and dictates our moods and emotions.

Find out which element you are! Visit
my website, take my elements quiz then come back and tell us which element you are and if you think it suits you.

Now that you know your element, here’s the back cover blurb.

What woman wouldn't be attracted to Niall O'Connor's soft Irish brogue and dark good looks? But Rosenwyn Tremain must find her father, and she isn't going to let a sexy, stubborn Irishman and his motorcycle distract her. Rose's intuition tells her he's hiding something, a secret even the cards cannot divine. Her tarot deck always reads true, but how can one man represent both Justice and Betrayal?

Magic. Niall's body tingles with it when he finds the woman snooping in his room. Rosenwyn might believe she's a no-nonsense accountant, but her essence whispers to him of ancient fairy magic that enslaves even as it seduces. Her heritage could endanger those he'd die to protect, but her powers and her passion, if properly awakened, might be the only thing that can save both their families, vanquish a fairy queen bent on revenge, and fulfill a prophecy that will bind their hearts together with... THE MAGIC KNOT

And you can read the first two chapters here

Okay, you know the drill. Leave your comments to be entered. And yes, if you leave comments each day you’ll be entered for each of them. So what element are you?

Writing Wishes and Plotting Dreams,

Hi Helen, It's great to have you here this week. As you know, okay anyone within the sound of my voice and/or typing knows, I couldn't wait for your book to release. :)

Lisa said...

I've been intrigued by what I've read about this book and really look forward to reading it. According to the quiz I'm a fire, which partially fits.

Helen Scott Taylor said...

Hi Donnas,

I've been really pleased with the reviews The Magic Knot has received.

You're the nurturer if you're water. We have lots of water here at the moment. So much we've had flooding.My husband drove along a flooded road today and got stranded.

Helen Scott Taylor said...


I love Irish hotties as well. Especially the dark haired blue-eyed ones.


traveler said...

Your wonderful novel looks intriguing and unique. Thanks for this great giveaway. I was Fire.

Helen Scott Taylor said...

Hi Brany W,

Another water person!

I'm glad you like the sound of The Magic Knot.


Helen Scott Taylor said...

Hi Lisa,

Glad you like the sound of my book. You're a hot blooded fire person! There seem to be lots of water and fire people. Not so many air and earth. Both my hero and heroine are earth.


LKap said...

Finally had time to take the quiz - I'm Fire
Imagine that ;-)

Helen Scott Taylor said...

Hi Traveler,

I'm pleased you like the sound of The Magic Knot. Another fire person!

I'm air. I have my head in the clouds. That definitely fits me.


tetewa said...

I've been hearing alot about this one, my element is water!

Liza said...

The Magic Knot sounds great. I'll have to pick it up at the bookstore even if I don't win.

My element is Earth and I think it is perfect for me.

Vicki said...

I just took the quiz and I'm Air. I think it fit me pretty close.

Helen Scott Taylor said...


One of my cps is fire. She didn't think it suited her but her husband told her it did. Fire people are the ones that get things done.


Helen Scott Taylor said...


The heroine in my next book, The Phoenix Stone is a water elemental--very sensual!


Helen Scott Taylor said...


I'm glad you like the sound of The Magic Knot. My hero and heroine in the story are both earth elementals.


Helen Scott Taylor said...


I'm air as well. Airy fairy head in the clouds, that's me.
