Overview

This is the first book in the Garland of Druids series.

Morgan McAfee is a Druid and proud of her gifts, using them only for good causes. In 1898 few people acknowledge Druids and their power. When the head of London's Criminal Investigative Department is forced to work with her, he scoffs at her claimed abilities. Chief Inspector Lord Lance Dellafield has no belief in visions and auras. Trying to recover a kidnapped child, his disdain is unconcealed. Handsome, aristocratic and condescending, he wants no help from a Druid. Even though their sexual attraction grows steamier with every encounter.

Even when a serial murderer terrifies London, Lance hesitates to admit Morgan's power. Yet he can't dismiss the beautiful Druid's emerald eyes from his mind. If he hopes to solve the murders he finds he needs her help.

When the murderer stalks Morgan, can Lance save her? Will he acknowledge a Druid has captured his heart? Will being a Druid help her in this most important pursuit, gaining Lance's love?

    Druid magic is frowned upon in 1898 London, but that doesn't sto

    Druid magic is frowned upon in 1898 London, but that doesn't stop Morgan McAfee from going to see Chief Inspector Lance Dellafield after she had vision about a missing child. Lance is skeptical about Morgan's abilities and she finds him condescending, but neither can deny that they feel a physical attraction between them. However, a relationship between the aristocratic Inspector and a Druid witch is impossible. When a serial killer starts targeting prostitutes, Lance again turns to Morgan for help solving the case.

    The author does a good job of building the growing attraction between Morgan and Lance. Their scenes together sizzle with sexual tension. I also enjoyed the subplot involving Morgan's mother Vivianne. The story flowed along well with a few twists and turns thrown in toward a predicable ending. I would have liked to have more of the Druid ways and magic discussed in the book though because it seems like Druidism took a back seat to the romance aspect of the book. With 8 books in this series, I'll definitely check out the next book. Fans of romance and mystery will enjoy this story.

    Druid's Daughter

    An enjoyable story. The mother is a mature Druid with a daughter and little interest in romance for herself, but involved with the young son of a police official. The daughter is psychic and inexperienced in romance. The police case she is working on puts her in close contact with an experienced police man - experienced in his line of work and also experienced with women. Romance and crime, innocence and experience -- throw in a little Druid magic and you have a good story.
