FROM JACKET FLAP: She must choose between her destiny...and her desire.
As soon as Pine Creek's new mystery man steps into her art gallery, Winter MacKeage is intrigued. This sexy stranger, Matt Gregor, wants her to do some drawings of his dream house. And with his tiger-gold eyes and masculine charm, he's impossible to resist. But so is Winter's Scottish heritage. As the seventh MacKeage daughter, she must embrace her true magical calling...and deny her mortal desires. Soon Winter is heating up -- in Matt's strong arms -- and her fiery heart is torn. Can she give up the destiny she was born to fulfill for the only man she's ever truly loved?
MY TAKE: I was into this book right away as the story gets rolling immediately. From the moment she sets eyes on Matt Gregor, Winter is hooked! Line and sinker..
This story is full of interesting, richly written characters. I enjoyed the verbal banter as well as the building of the tension between the two main characters and with the family members. There is humor in abundance as well as a finely crafted storyline. Several different mysteries pop up through the book and will all come together in the end to finally make sense. I hope there will be more on many of the supporting characters in the next book (or two?)..
I didn't realize at first that this was part of a series, but I am now on the hunt to get the others and read the series in order, especially now that I know there is a sequel to this book! Highly recommended reading.
MY RATING: 4/5
