The oldest sister, Dee, has been the little mother since she was 16. She is the one who grabbed her sisters and ran after their parent's untimely death. She is the straight laced responsible sister with a hidden wild side. Her power is shape shifting.
The middle sister, Lizzie, hates conflict and accidentally produces bunnies when she is upset or nervous. She appears extremely vulnerable but ends up having a powerful side. Her power is transmutation.
The youngest sister, Mare, walks around claiming she is Queen of the Universe, when really she is probably the most vulnerable. She is equal parts Bravado and tender hearted. Her power is psychokinetic.
When the sisters discover that the aunt may have found out where they are, and sent them a few unexpected, but certainly welcome men, things in their small town of Salem's Fork will never be the same.
There are wonderful one-liners like the one I used for my review title. Humorous situations that had me laughing out loud throughout the book. There were a few heart breaking scenes that had me reaching for the Kleenex.Read more ›
Unbeknownst to the Fortune sisters, Xan has a plan to strip them of their powers and take them for herself. They slowly uncover her plotting and scheming, only Dee and Lizzie are so crazy in love they don't care where their men came from. Mare can't quite get over the fact that Crash left her for five years, and his feelings for her may not be real; they may just be the result of Xan's love spell, which isn't enough for her. As the sisters fall deeply in love, they suddenly attain some control over the powers that had so long controlled them. It's a good thing, because they're going to need everything they've got to put a stop to Xan.Read more ›
The stories would have been better if written separately, like the Linda Howard, Linda Winstead, and Beverly Barton Raintree trilogy.
Not worth my time and effort to locate and read, or the money I spent to purchase it.
A collaborative effort, the effect is seamless. Three romances, packed into a weekend. I know, a weekend? But these writer's know what they're doing because it's believable and you root for the characters to defeat Xan (an entertaining--twisted, but entertaining--villain) and find their happy-ever-afters.
The pacing is flawless, and how could it not be? Three days to resolve a lifetime of conflict, and they make every scene count.
But after the last page, my favorite part of the book was how fun it was. Sure, the dialogue was hillarious, and the situations magic-gone-wrong causes are imaginative and engaging. But, it's a fun read. You'll enjoy this book.
CAUTION SPOILER: I don't know why this will help Xan get the powers, because in the end, the 3 sisters gang up on her and also fight her separately and win without her taking their powers. The 3 sisters also stay with the 3 men at the end. Therefore, being with the men did not weaken the 3 sisters.
Sexual language: strong. Number of sex scenes: six. Setting: current day Salem's Fork, Virginia. Copyright: 2007. Genre: fantasy and paranormal romance.
