REVIEW

"The Donovans return to Captivate a new generation of Paranormal readers"

Although each story can stand alone, the three Donovan cousins are such integral parts of each other's lives, offering advice, support, and love, that they are even better when read together. What is the Donovan Legacy? It is a legacy of magic passed down by their Celtic ancestors. It is also a legacy of love.

Two sets of fraternal triples marry, three Donovan brothers to three Corrigan sisters. Each union results in a single child, Morgana to Matthew and Bryna, Sebastian to Douglas and Camilla, Anastasia to Padrick and Maureen. Hereditary witches one and all; each is blessed with a special gift. The stories are set in Monterey California.

Captivated is Morgana's story. Morgana's gift is the gift of magic; she can conjure spells like no other. Magic is her stock in trade as well as she is the owner of the successful shop, Wicca, which caters to folks interested in healing crystals and herbs.

Nash Kirkland is a successful screenwriter. He writes scripts for horror films. His latest muse is to write a script involving witches. Draw to town by Morgana's reputation, he is a skeptic but is determined to pick her brain for material for his film. He never expected to find himself face to face with the real thing.

Nash is also an only child, however his legacy is quite different from Morgana's. His mother, an unwed teen, abandoned him to the dubious mercies of his grandmother. The grandmother, determined to visit the sins of the mother upon the child, farms him out to foster homes just long enough for him to form attachments. No sooner is he happy than she yanks him back home to a loveless environment. A good-natured boy, he does not become bitter, but in the way of many in his situation he draws himself into a world of his own making. His fertile mind creating fantastic tales, which later become his stock and trade. He is vulnerable though, never risking his heart, afraid of rejection, he puts all his passion into his work.

Morgana isn't impressed with Nash's vision of witches, but has admired his previous work. She is not sure she wants to aide him in his quest. She has seen the future, her personal involvement with him, but she doesn't know where it may lead. Risking her heart she agrees to help him with his script to ensure proper portrayal of her kind. She is soon drawn to the talented and lonely man. The result: a sultry affair and the best work of Nash's life. Why isn't it enough for either of them?

I think the reader will enjoy this believable and highly lovable witch trio. Look for Sabastian and Ana's stories coming soon. Highly Recommended.

SUMMARY

Only the phenomenal Nora Roberts could have created the remarkable Donovan clan. Fascinating and irresistible, the mysterious Donovan cousins share a secret that's been handed down through generations a secret that sets them apart from ordinary beings.

His interest in her was purely professional...or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out the alluring Morgana Donovan to help him research his latest screenplay, though the hardheaded skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be. But, as Morgana revealed herself to him, Nash found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings and always kept them in check. So how could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt for Morgana was real and not just some conjurer's trick?

A classic novel from the enchanting series The Donovan Legacy. The series continues with Entranced, coming soon from Silhouette Books.
