Emma Grant, a tour guide in Denver, too long wishing for the right man to show up, tries a charm in the book she's reading about mythological gods. But instead of a man, she's offered the opportunity to lead a tour in Scotland. When the tour's members turn out to be a group of retired schoolteachers from Atlanta who decide she needs a man and become intent on helping her find one, magic is set in motion.
A broken-down tour bus in a rainstorm brings Emma and her troupe to Ian McCabe's castle, who is, unbeknown to Emma, the author of the book with the charm. Emma feels her sexual attraction to him is as magical as his to her and thinks her wish has been granted.
Ian is the grandson of gods and fae and doesn't care if Emma is mortal. She's the one for him. But when he tells her his grandparents are Aphrodite and Odin, she thinks he's crazy.
Unaware of her own magical heritage, Emma must ultimately choose whether to embrace Ian's world, and he must convince her their love is real in any world.
Lizzie T. Leaf writes with gusto and humor as she brings forth characters so real, despite their relegation to myth, that you'd love to party with them. Even the mortal characters, particularly the intrepid retired schoolteachers, leave the reader wanting to have tea, or a martini, with them. I'm looking forward to the future Magical Love Series books.
Emma has abandoned her career as a boring accountant and is directing local tours when she is approached to host a tour group of retired teachers to Scotland. This is a career making opportunity for Emma - one she has no idea will change her life forever.
Ian has quite the lineage - descended from Greek Gods, Fae and mortals, he has been denying his powers for quite some time. Living in his glamoured castle in Scotland and writing his Fae folklore, he is distracted and on edge - knowing his life is about to change. It does- drastically, when Emma arrives... unconscious on the castle steps.
When Emma's tour bus breaks down she must face the inclement weather and search for help. She is relieved to find a beautiful castle in the mists. Exhausted and distracted by the myriad of steps she slips and falls - knocking herself unconscious. When she awakes, naked, with a gorgeous man at her bedside, she is enamored and perplexed. So begins their journey to overcome their past (and the very pesky fairy Morgana) to find the love that the Powers have decreed will be theirs!
I loved so much about this book. The plot is so well defined and the build up to the first meeting of Emma and Ian was ingenious. Emma's character is very believable and has the perfect balance of cynicism, wit, and vulnerability. Her relationship with her best friend adds a special touch to the storyline (and a twist you will love).
The retired school teachers are inspired and an integral part of the plot. Emma moves from feeling annoyed at their intrusions to appreciating them as not only traveling companions but mothers and friends.
Ian's grandfathers are Odin and Oberon no less and his Grandmother is Aphrodite. There characters, although Gods, were approachable and humorous in their efforts to assist the couple. Of course, this is a romance, and so the end is a foregone conclusion, but Lizzie makes the journey an intense whirlwind of magical drama!
I couldn't put this one down and finished it in one sitting! So take a respite from the hectic Holiday Season and lose yourself in the wonderful realm of Beyond Magic! Watch for the next book in this series, Emerging Magic, (keep your fingers crossed) releasing in late January 2012!
