"An excellent and entertaining magical romance."

Magic here and magic there, spells and counter-spells galore! Nic Stone is a fairy, a fae, who twenty-five years go loved a mortal woman so much that he bargained with Titania, queen of the faery folk to give his beloved wife Anna eternal life. The only trouble was that when he returned to Anna to tell her, he found her dying. It seems Titania forgot to mention that to gain eternal life you must be born into it. It's been twenty-five years and Nic now seeks his reincarnated and immortal lover, but finds a puzzle instead. Two women face him, Dianna Fielding, a popular music star who looks like his beautiful Anna, and her sister Stacy, who Nic feels an immediate attraction to. But he believes that attraction is probably the work of Titania who has her own plans for Nic. If he declares love for the wrong woman, then he'll be condemned to become the faery queen's personal slave in the magical realm for all time.

Nic must win his lady to his side and make sure she's the right one or wind up painting Titania's toenails... or something like that... for eternity. He knows that Dianna has to be his Anna, but she's in love with another man and somehow he doesn't find her kisses half as interesting as Stacy's. Stacy is used to losing a man's love to her pop- star sister... it's happened many times before. But there are a lot of strange things going on. For example Nic tells her only immortals can see pixies like the ones that infest her house after she tics-off Titania. So how come Stacy can see them and Dianna can't?

The answer is pretty obvious, but this isn't intended to be a mystery. The fun comes in watching Nic and Stacy deal with their dynamic relationship, as well as the preparation for Dianna's upcoming road show, while coping with Titania's tricks. The practical jokes that the pixies play kept things moving right along -- never a dull moment with them around. And Nic is forever using his magic to make things right. Believe me, there are times when I'd love to have someone able to whisk me off to Paris for dinner or to a tropical island for a couple of days. And you just can't beat him as a plumber.

But when he's forced to use just his innate talents as a lover, Nic needs no magic just his lips and. . . stamina. Now if he could just figure out which woman to be using them on... That's what makes Cupid's Melody an excellent and entertaining magical romance.

Nic's search to find his reincarnated wife leads him to sisters, Dianna and Stacy. All he has to do is convince Diana, the spitting image of his long-lost Anna, to love him again. Easy for a sexy faery.

Except that Stacy is the one he keeps kissing.

Faery Nic Stone had no idea he was about to make the mistake of his eternal life when he asked the Queen of the Fae to grant immortality to his beautiful bride, Anna. To become immortal, he discovered only too late, Anna first had to die and then be reborn...

It has taken twenty-five years for Nic to re-enter the mortal world to search for his lost love, but he is convinced that he has finally found her. After all, Dianna Fielding is the spitting image of his wife. Masquerading as her gardener, he vows to seduce her heart all over again. But why is it her sister, Stacy, who makes him ache with that all-too-familiar longing? Either someone has cast a spell on him, or Nic is falling in love with the wrong woman. If he follows the stirrings of his heart, will he find true love--or will his beloved be lost to him forever?
