Love spells are dangerous, even more so for those who cast them…

Ethan Hamilton moves to a lazy little town in Oregon, hoping to escape his demons. 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 must do all she can to protect herself. What other choice does she have? Jessie casts a spell on a good man, a man with whom she can’t fight her attraction. The spell doesn’t work quite as planned.

It is a medication that includes sildenafil buy cialis online citrate. After going over a decade without an NFL team, Baltimore returned to the NFL landscape cialis professional in 1996. This medicine allows you achieve erection and make love several times in that duration of purchase cheap viagra 36 hours. It is a common problem of urinary tract and can 100mg viagra price be ideally repressed and treated with the implementation of Generic Zithromax. Messing with free will is always a bad idea.

To top it off, Ethan’s treatment of her is so addictive. Deep down, she knows the effects will wear off, and yet his feelings seem genuine. It’s just a spell…right?

The thing about love spells is that they don’t always necessarily go as planned.

Jessie was a likeable and relatable main character. Her concerns about how her small-town neighbors and customers would react to the news that she was Wiccan was completely understandable. I appreciated the fact that the author explained why that could be a major problem along with also explaining why she chose to live there anyway. Getting to know Jessie from this angle only made me like her even more.

I would have liked to see more time spent developing the emotional relationship between Jessie and Ethan. They leapt from meeting each other to falling for one another extremely quickly. While I liked them together, it sure would have been nice to know what they saw in each other that made them develop those feelings so rapidly other than their mutual physical attraction. This became even more true once I realized that Ethan was only going to be narrating a small portion of the scenes in this story. I sure would have liked to get to know him as well as I did Jessie.

While it was a minor part of the storyline, I really enjoyed the scenes set in Jessie’s candle shop. Her interactions with her customers felt realistic. She seemed to understand retail and had built up good relationships with the folks who came to her for advice on what to purchase from her shop. These small moments went a long way in giving readers new insights into her personality and value system.

Magick & Moonlight was a short, lighthearted read that made me smile.
