Do You Believe In Magic?
What if you could cast a spell to help you do your everyday job? But . . . that didn’t help when an ancient force brought you and your soul mate together, and you weren’t ready?
Magic practitioners in the modern world have supernatural skills to do their everyday jobs. They also have a legendary force, the imperative, that brings each to his or her soul mate, who will be the love of their lives. The mates are also guaranteed to recognize each other almost immediately. Or so the stories go.
Consultant Clay Morgan, literally a computer wizard, is going after a hacker for one of his clients. When he meets Francie Stevens, he’s immediately attracted, but thinks because she’s not a practitioner, she can’t be his soul mate. Right?
Francie works for Clay’s client, and the hacker plaguing the company turns out to be the boyfriend of her best friend. She’s had terrible experiences with men in the past, so she’s determined to avoid Clay. They must work together to foil the hacker, however, and the attraction between the two of them is a constant source of worry for her.
Clay realizes quickly that she is his soul mate, and he’s not about to let her get away. First, he must explain magic, get her to agree that it exists, he can wield it, and they’re soul mates who belong together.
When Francie resists, it won’t be easy, even with the imperative’s help. Clay is stubborn, however. He’s going to be her soul mate, no matter what.
About the Author
My award-winning Magic Series is about a group of people who can cast spells to help them with their everyday jobs. Wouldn’t you like to have an ability that would help you type faster, make accurate change, fix the plumbing, or grow flowers and vegetables? Or whatever it is that you do? And these people, who call themselves practitioners, are guaranteed to find their soul mates. Ready or not, and whether or not they want one at that particular moment. As the series progresses, the magic gets more complicated and so do the relationships. Included in the series are the last two in the series, never before published.
Windswept won the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Romance, Small Press, 2008, and several other awards. Writing this standalone contemporary with a historical twist took me back to my first love, the study of history, and it definitely shows off my Texas roots. There’s a terrible secret in the papers of the Windswept Plantation . . .
I’m a native Gulf Coast Texan, now living in The Frozen North of Chicagoland. I started life reading mysteries, then sci-fi and fantasy. When I discovered romances, I saw a way to combine all the aspects of books that I liked into my own stories. And what a welcome difference from writing computer manuals--my old job and which has no magic about it at all.
