A KIND OF MAGIC
Sizemore's interesting book has
a male-chauvinist hero who's still endearing and good use of fey folk. The points of view head-hop at times, but readers should be able to follow the Highland warrior and a modern-day engineer's journey of conflict,
emotions and romance.
Rowan is incensed at being forced to marry. The lusciously formed stranger with copper hair refuses his command, and Rowan must woo her to gain her agreement. Both Maddy and Rowan find their married life an exercise in frustration as they learn to trust, love and fight together to save the Murray clan from a man who vows he'll be king someday.
