Friday, May 11, 2012Review: Do you believe in Magic by Susan Squires
I recieved an email telling about a new series about Merlin's children and thought it looked good. So I bought it and read it yesterday.
It was good but thier is a lot of sex scenes and violence in it.
Maggie O'Brian is a woman bull rider also gentles horses. She lives on a rundown ranch with her father a mean drunk and sick with it. Her mother
left her with her father when she was 8. Her first love left her and even her dog left.
Maggie is going to wild horse auctions and take 8 horses and half go to CA to
a ranch who teach disabled children to ride horses.
Tristram Tremaine comes from a big rich family and he is second oldest and does not feel like he fits in at all. His dad is a very powerful and successful man and does not relate to him and judges him.
Tristram left his home and has been on the road for about a year. when he
meets Maggie and decides to follow her to horse auction on his motorcycle.
He sees her gentle the horses fast but she gives him cold shoulder even
when she is attracted to him. He knows she is coming back to give the other trailer full of horses so he decides to wait for her. She is late so he gives up and heads to her hometown where he met her earlier in the day.
He has not cared about anything in a year and can't get her off his mind.
Maggie on the way back sees a semi behind her and move to pass her but
all of a sudden she can't see the semi. She does hear it and see a motorcyc le in other lane and knows she is going to see a bad wreck.
after she hears the wreck and sees things fly in front of her she see's the semi just going down the road.
Maggie is an hour away from ambulance and it would be another couple of hours to hospital so when she sees Tristram is alive and can walk a little they get him in truck.
Thier is a group of people trying to kill Tristram's whole family before they
come into thier powers when they fall in love with someone else with the geneHe does not believe he has powers..
I look forward to reading more of this series in the future.

If you enjoyed the Drake Sisters by Christine Feehan then you will very much enjoy this book. Not as dark as the Drake series this book has the right touch of magic humor and romance. There is enough action adventure to keep the story moving as well as developing the milieu setting. The Children of Merlin series is about a family with magical abilities. However the magical abilities are only fully manifested when a person meets their soulmate or One True love or Destiny. Although we find that soul mate, One True Love and Destiny are broadly defined the magic abilities are also very broad in scope and range. And to keep things simple there are dark forces opposing our heroes and heroines.
I really could not put this book down or it's sequel. It's time for the next in the series.

Spicy romance and paranormal adventure
Squires doesn’t pull any punches in the bedroom; her use of sensory is lush, her characters’ romantic moves compelling. The author’s equestriana is authentic and the heroine’s sensitivity to horses is a pure delight. I enjoyed the inexorable unfolding of paranormal elements, from a subtle demonstration of the heroine’s gentling of wild mustangs to the ferocious use of metaphysical power in the chilling conclusion. If the reader seeks passionate characters and fresh if frightening plot twists, Do You Believe in Magic will keep the pages turning.
