Book Description

In high-speed, high-tech New Chicago, 2039, magic has gone viral. Lily Barnett, a brilliant but drifty artist wanders into a strange magic shop where she impulsively guzzles a love potion. Erratic and unpredictable powers awake inside her. Her houseplants turn ravenous and strings of flamingo lights spout poetry. When she paints a portrait of her perfect man, he steps free of the canvas and stalks her. Desperate, she turns to her best friend, Daniel, for help.

But Daniel has problems of his own. He’s a telepath who must shield thoughts, emotions, and desires or go mad. He wants Lily, desperately, but knows his passion will drive her away and that his friendship is of more value to her than his love.

As Lily negotiates the catastrophic blends of her fear, imagination, and chaotic magic, Daniel must fight against his own impenetrable reserve and the psychic gifts he’s always despised.

Magic and love might save them, but can they survive each other?

4.0 out of 5 stars A Unique, Magical Must Read Romance! July 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
SMITTEN IMAGE was a magical kaleidoscope of a read. Pam B. Morris immerses the reader into a slightly future world that surrounds Lily and Daniel with wild magic, volatile lust, and an enduring love. The author's knowledge of art and color shines through her story impeccably. The art comes alive on the page and draws you into the beautiful worlds she creates through her funny and quirky heroine, Lily. You can't help but fall in love with Lily as she stumbles in learning how to wield and temper the new magic within her and Daniel who harbors his own maddening powers and secrets, all which threaten to keep them apart.

SMITTEN IMAGE is such a creative and unique take on witchcraft, psychic powers, and magic. I highly recommend it to those looking for something a little bit different and a whole lot of awesome!

(I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Magic united is a powerful force July 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Pam B. Morris' debut book, Smitten Image, starts off as a light-hearted romp through magic and love. The visual pictures of the heroine, Lily, ("...stockings saggy at the knees, cuffs smeared with paint, and carrying a stained canvas bag..."), as well as her inner thoughts allow the reader to connect almost instantaneously. This is in spite of the fact that the world is decades in the future where the switching of magnetic poles creates a Chicago like we've never known.

But Lily's romp isn't quite as light-hearted as time goes on. She has a serious problem. How can she be with the man she loves without killing him? And not in ordinary ways--oh, no, that would be too tame for Ms. Morris. Lily's elemental magic goes "rogue," threatening to overwhelm the sympathetic, clairvoyant magic of Daniel. If she can't get it under control, "...every thought, every feeling that humans projected would overwhelm his senses and drive him insane. Literally."

The beauty of this book is following the enjoyment and love trials of Lily and Daniel. At the same time, a little part of your brain acknowledges the universal problem: How do we fall in love without killing each other - or ourselves - in the process?

I enjoyed the plot, characterizations and most of all the visual kaleidoscope of images I got while reading this book!

(I received an advance review copy to write this review, but no financial compensation.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Smitten indeed August 23, 2012
By Tin L.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the gritty, film noir-like streets of New Chicago to the luminous displays of magic that fill its pages, this is a deeply visual work that presents itself much like one of the vivid paintings created by its heroine. You will want to curl up on Lily Barnett's sagging sofa for a cup of tea, remind her to feed the fish, and watch her magical world unfold around you. A thoroughly welcome and refreshing take on the classic romance novel. Read it and be transported...

4.0 out of 5 stars Magical Love August 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From page one of SMITTEN IMAGE, readers know author Pam Morris is an artist. Her descriptive words create settings and images that don't jump off the page - instead they pull the reader into the page. You are immediately drawn into Lily's and Daniel's magical world where portrait subjects become alive and houseplants create fear. But, as is true for all good books, the center of this magical world is the love between Lily and Daniel. Their initial inability to make their love work actually frustrated me because I did not foresee how they could eventually have their happily ever after. Fortunately, Morris relieved my frustration, and instead I was left longing for the next book from her magical world. Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic--Excitement--Exquisite Writing! August 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Magic--Excitement--Exquisite Writing! Pam B. Morris knows how to write. Her words pull you in and make you feel as if you're living in the world she's created. It's a joy to read and I couldn't wait to see what happened.--then was so sad when I'd read the last word. I wanted to live with her characters a little longer! Morris paints a character like an artist moves a brush...alive, vivid and with great emotion. This story is so fresh! So clever! So well written! I give it five stars wholeheartedly! I suggest settling in with a nice glass of wine, a cup of tea and a blanket this winter...and read this book. Its beauty will linger with you long after you've read the final word.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique Story October 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pam Morris has created a wonderful love story set in a unique vision of the future. Lily and Daniel are quirky, fun characters and you love them both from the start. While the world they inhabit has been torn apart there is still hope and there is magic. It's a wonderful story that I would recommend to anyone who loves romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smitten with Smitten Image! October 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
As charming as Harry Potter, this wonderfully, magical novel put a smile on my face from beginning to end. I fell in love with Pam B. Morris's poetic voice, turns of phrases and magical cast of characters.
Lily is a delightful heroine, quirky, passionate and absolutely loveable as she and Daniel struggle to be together under impossible circumstances. Hopelessly in love, Daniel is a admirable hero who never tries to change the befuddled heroine, but instead embraces the ardent artist she needs to be.
Again, I must mention the delightful writing and share one of my favourite lines from many: `Gods and favors, but the girl was a mind-tweak.' Don't you just love that!
It takes a creative soul to write one, and that's exactly what Pam B. Morris does with Lily, her magical awakening and this love story. Full of enchanted lessons, whimsical descriptions and passionate romance, Smitten Image shows that love truly is magic.
