Magick & Moonlight Marie Lavender Paranormal Romance Heat Rating: 4

Messing with free will is always a bad idea… Ethan Hamilton moves to a lazy little town in Oregon, hoping to escape his demons. But, instead he discovers a woman dancing nude in the moonlight. This woman who claims she is a witch dazzles him with her sensual presence. He thinks she’s crazy, but what if she’s not? Jessie Anderson has been taught that her kind hides who they really are. And she has a problem on her hands. Someone knows her secret and she has to do all she can to protect herself. Review: Magick and Moonlight by Marie Lavender is a sweet romance between an ex-cop, Ethan, and a wican, Jesssie. He finds her in a secluded area on the beach naked during a full moon dancing around a cauldron. Upon seeing her face he is amazed at how beautiful she is. He offers her his coat and a ride home which she accepts. Immediately she casts a spell on him. Lavender builds the suspense, leaving the reader to wonder why she casts the spell. Throughout the story small details are given, although the answer doesn’t come out till close to the end. The love affair between them starts to bud and grow and throughout everything the couple goes through they manage to be a benefit to one another. The author brought the characters to life in this short novella that centers around Ethan and Jessie through the use of dialogue, expression, and descriptions of place and person. I found myself engrossed in the plot throughout the entire length of the story in anticipation of the couple’s fate. The story flowed easily and was a quick read. Too quick. Upon turning the final page I yearned for more. A true page turner! | Reviewer: Lisa Klaes |
