Rock hard, play hard, love harder.

Internationally known wild child James Kelly is a filthy rich rock star, devilishly handsome, with silicone beauties aplenty to grace both his arm and his bed. He has it all. Or does he? What he wants most is a real woman to tell him no once in a while. . .and thanks to his inherited precognition, he knows her when he meets her. But the vision of his future is shrouded in darkness and shadows.

Tarot reader Lisbeth Vargo works at the local renaissance faire. She's still stinging from her last bad relationship when her best friend marries James Kelly's brother. After being paired up in the wedding party, sparks fly between Lisbeth and James. Even her tarot cards tell her he's the one, but is the interest of a "bad boy" something she can take seriously?

Sometimes falling in love takes a leap of faith. Occasionally it needs a push off the cliff. James is more than happy to give Lisbeth that needed shove, but will his love save her. . .or get her killed?

The Gypsy Ribbon Shannon MacLeod. Review from Jeannie Zelos Book Reviews. I'd enjoyed the first in this series (Celtic Knot) so was pleased to get this one. I enjoyed it even more than book one, whether its just the storyline appealed more, or that I was familiar with the characters and the paranormal quirks they all had I’m not sure. Anyway, this time its about another brother from the Kelly family, James. He's an international top rock star, and with his good looks, fame and money he has no shortage of woman wanting to be with him. But what he wants is someone to love him, not the rock star, not the fame and the money, someone who will say no to him when its needed. He's getting jaded with the rock scene, loves his band mates and the music, but their manager has been pushing them hard and they are all feeling it. I can see how that happens in real life, and love the way authors show us the downsides to a situation instead of just the outward, glossy appearance. This felt so real, I was wishing for something good for James..and then he meets Beth at a family wedding. She's the best friend of his brothers wife, and when he sees her he feels an immediate connection. Beth's got his poster on her bedroom wall, and had a long time crush on him and can't see he'd be interested in her, she's not like the type of lady he's always pictured with. So when he tries to get closer to her she says no. He's stunned, but persistent though and slowly they begin a romance, with advice always from the Tarot cards :) I love this mystical side Shannon adds to her writing, it fits well with the characters and with the overall story arc and gives a little extra dimension to the plots. Of course James being famous means danger for Beth, and the manager isn't happy at his money maker having a girlfriend – that’s not going to go down well with the female followers! So they don't have a smooth ride for their love story, but one fraught with dangers and double dealing, mayhem and mysteries, and it all comes to a life threatening climax. Its a great read, one I really enjoyed, and would re read. It has a good balance of love and emotion, happiness and sadness, it's much more than just a bland sweet HEA story. Its a good length too at 98,000 words, that to me makes a far better book than a short one, as a quick reader I want one to occupy me for hours and only long ones do that. Stars: five, good fun romance, with a mystical theme. NB: ARC supplied via Lyrical Press.
