Cassandra Wilson, angel and first-year nurse, spends her days helping other people. Day after day. Life after life. While her best friend feels the young nurse needs a little love in her life, Cassie avoids serious relationships. She saw what her mother went through, and unless Cassie can find another angel to spend her life with, love and a family are not in her future.

An innocent night out with Fraser, a university junior and varsity hockey player, leads to something more serious and Cassie begins to experience feelings she’s been trying to avoid. But the sudden discovery—by both herself and Fraser—that Fraser is a witch, combined with his need to please everyone around him, poses a challenge to the couple’s happily ever after.

Romance is not part of Cassie’s plan.

Cassie has no intention of getting into a serious relationship unless she finds another angel. Cassie believes her mother’s union with a human and her birth were the root of the depression that consumed her mother. It is a heavy burden to carry. As I read, I wondered if there were other angels Cassie could talk to. She knew there were angels working in the hospital. Could she have asked them about her mother’s experience? Cassie has convinced herself that she is content with the life she’s chosen, but I wasn’t so sure. She’s an intelligent, sweet young woman, but she seemed sad to me. Will Cassie’s ban on romance do more damage than good?

I liked Fraser immediately. He’s friendly, caring, and handsome, and he wiggles his way into Cassie’s heart before she knows what’s happening. Fraser and Cassie have the potential to be a great couple. When Cassie figures out that Fraser is a witch, he doesn’t take the news well and their budding romance is derailed. Fraser doesn’t automatically accept everything Cassie tells him. His entire world has changed, and he needs time to process that. I find that very realistic. When Fraser’s world is rocked by another change, will he and Cassie find strength in each other, or let their chance at love slip away?

I would really like to know more about Cassie and Fraser’s world and the rules that govern it. Are there lots of angels and witches or are they rare? Do angels and witches cooperate with each other often? Are there other supernatural creatures? What sort of training do angels and witches go through as they learn to control their powers? While Ms. Copper provides enough information to make this story satisfying, I felt like I’d just skimmed the surface, and I was left wanting to know more.

I’m glad I had the opportunity to read Love Supernaturally. It is a fun and quick story sure to delight romance fans.
