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.
In this first book of the series, Lizzie T. Leaf has masterfully woven Greek gods, Fae lore and some good old fashioned romance to create a story that is captivating and interesting. Her characters are multi-dimensional and I especially enjoyed the antics of the elderly ladies, Emma was showing around Scotland. Ms Leaf knows how to infuse just the right amount of humor in the right places to bring a smile on the readers faces. Ian is a great hero. In fact, Emma and Ian are two protagonists that I especially rooted for. The road they travelled was not easy as full of rocks and obstacles, but they had some pretty powerful friends to help pull them through. I had to reach for a tissue at the end of this story as it was very heart-touching. Oh, did I mention the love scenes? Yes, Ms. Leaf writes some very sensuous and passionate love scenes that may have you squirming in your seat. This is a promising start to what looks like a great series. I am looking forward to the next one.
