Deputy Ryland Stone had a tough childhood, and as a result, he does not believe in fairytales or magic and has no use for people who do. Ryland also enjoys women, but he has no intention of settling down and suffering the way his father did in his marriage to Ryland’s mother. When Ryland meets Rhiannon Sparks though, something in her calls to him in a way he has never felt before. The attraction he feels towards her goes way beyond lust, it almost feels…magic.
Even though he has made it clear that he’s not looking for a long relationship, Rhiannon still feels guilty about using Ryland and their sexual chemistry for her own agenda, but not guilty enough to turn him away. Soon Rhiannon finds herself wanting Ryland as more than a lover; she wants him for her true love. But is the man she worked her magic on ever going to be able to accept and love her for what she is?
A TOUCH OF MAGICK is the first in author N.J. Walters’ series; SPELLS, SECRETS AND SEDUCTION, and what a fabulous beginning it is. Rhiannon and Ryland are both really likable and interesting characters, with enough chemistry between them to light a fire. The other residents of the town, especially Rhiannon’s two best friends, are also very real and have me wondering what will happen to them next. A TOUCH OF MAGICK is a fun, steamy and enjoyable story, and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Walters has in store for us next.
